Get ready for chestnut roasting and yuletide caroling—the Christmas countdown is on!
Did you know that the 12 days of Christmas traditionally start on Christmas Day and go through January 5? Whether you celebrate for 12 days or 12 months, this partridge-free list is for you! Pour some cider, pull up a chair, and sing along with us as we dive into a dozen “you deserve it” goodies.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: an oil from a pine tree
Brisk and woodsy, Pine essential oil is a staple any time of year. Add it to your diffuser for that freshly cut Christmas tree scent or add it to Epsom salts for a refreshing bath that helps you dash away from holiday stress.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: two oils to love
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: three wise gifts
What could be wiser during the holidays than stocking up on essential oils with warm, calming aromas? When you feel overwhelmed, reach for the solution three out of three wise men recommend: the grounding aromas of Egyptian Gold™, Frankincense, and Myrrh. Bonus points if your true love throws in a bottle of 3 Wise Men™ essential oil blend!
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: four drops of Raven
What can you do with four drops of Raven® essential oil blend? You can add it to our V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for a relaxing massage when you need to send holiday stress scattering. You can also use Raven to treat tired feet and turn a bath into a soothing soak.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: five golden oils
These oils are as good as gold—and not just because they have golden-hued labels. Reach for the scent of Cedarwood, Citrus Fresh™, Helichrysum, Lemon, or Tangerine when your space or your mood need brightening. Their uplifting aromas are brilliant mood boosters!
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: six ounces of sunscreen
You wouldn’t think sunscreen could be romantic, but when it’s packed with skin-loving essential oils and naturally protects against UVA and UVB rays, it’s true love. Whether your holidays include snorkeling or snowboarding, remember to pack at least two 3-ounce bottles of Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50.
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: seven makeup brushes
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: eight gifts from neighbors
Who knew so many neighbor gifts had piled up on the porch? Plates of cookies, hot chocolate mix, hand soap—you’re so popular. But now it’s time for you to return the favor. Good thing you’ve got essential oils and an extensive list of DIYs, each one simple enough to knock out in one night!
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: twelve reasons for the season
From delicious cider to decked-out snowmen, there are dozens of reasons to fall in love with the holiday season. Here are 12 of our favorites:
Building a snowman
Gathering with family and friends
Getting teary over holiday movies
Indulging in turkey with all the trimmings
Making gingerbread houses
Playing Secret Santa
Sharing stories by the fire
Singing Christmas carols
Sipping hot chocolate
Stealing moments under the mistletoe
Taking in the twinkling lights
Trimming the tree
Our twelfth day of Christmas could be your new holiday tradition! Fill your home with the warm, comforting aroma of Abundance™, grab pen and paper, and gather the family. Ask everyone to write down 12 reasons to love the season and then share your lists. You’ll quickly discover why your family thinks it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
