Best Winter Essential Oils

Get ready for the Winter season with our Winter Essential Oil Collection!

Learn all about the different Winter essential oils and their benefits, and find the best Winter essential oil for YOU!

Winter is officially here and we hope that you are as excited as we are for snow angels, Christmas trees, and sweater weather fun! But while the snow and the holiday festivities certainly make Winter magical, it would be naïve to say that the frosty season doesn’t have a bit of a bite! As we know quite well, the cold weather and short days can end up taking a bit of a toll, mentally and physically. Stay protected this Winter from the chilly air and biting winds with our Winter Collection!

Find the best Winter essential oils for you and make sure that your skin stays moisturized, your hair stays shiny, and your mood stays cheerful all season long!

1. Orange

Dry skin during the Winter time? With a couple drops of Orange essential oil, you can bring back that pre-Winter glow to last you through the holiday season. Use Orange oil to moisturize and hydrate your skin, as well as provide it protection from the cold dry air. With antibacterial and antiseptic healing properties, Orange oil can also help reduce acne, dark spots, blemishes, or scars. Apply it topically during the cold months to boost circulation, promote cell growth, and shrink large pores just in time for the holiday season. 

Orange oil can also help reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, or Winter blues that can commonly arise during the Winter months. Diffuse this cheerful and refreshing oil to give you a boost of energy during the short daylight days, and make you more enthusiastic and productive.

2. Helichrysum

Oftentimes, the cold Winter months bring around a new trend of sniffles, coughs, and germs. Stay healthy and protected all season long with Helichrysum essential oil. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, Helichrysum essential oil has been found to be quite handy at helping fight off colds, coughs, and infections. The essential oil can also help aid respiration by helping reduce inflammation in the airways or inside your nose, which can prove to be very helpful if you are struggling to take deep breaths in the cold.

The best way to relieve inflammation, congestion, or cold and flu symptoms with Helichrysum essential oil is to add a couple of drops of it to your diffuser.

3. Migraine Support

You know what they say: an oil a day keeps the holiday headaches away! Diffuse or topically apply our Migraine Support blend to keep yourself in tip-top shape for the holidays. Whether it’s loud family members, screaming kids, or banging pots, a couple drops of Migraine Support is all you will need to soothe your mind and ease your mental tension. 

Holiday stressors aside, this blend is perfect for those who get worse headaches in the Winter months, when the cold air drys out sensitive sinus membranes, causing more pain. Not only is this blend a great Winter essential oil, the scent is incredibly soothing and great for use all year round.

4. Immune Strength

Even though it is a staple for all seasons, Immune Strength is one of the best Winter essential oils to have in your collection. Stay healthy and strong during the Winter months with Immune Strength, and feel your best during the holiday season. Fortify your immune system by adding Immune Strength to your hand lotions or facial moisturizers throughout the dry season. With natural disinfecting and cleansing properties, this blend is an excellent addition to your Winter beauty routine. This blend was formulated to help combat unwanted germs and give your immune system the support it deserves. 

And when it comes to self-care during the Winter months, it’s important to remember that our emotional wellness is just as important as physical health. Lift your spirits and draw on some extra emotional strength by adding Immune Strength to a personal aromatherapy inhaler for a quick and invigorating boost to your mood.

5. Flu Time

A blend that includes Peppermint, Frankincense, Lime, and Lavender, Flu Time is another great Winter essential oil! Not only does it help increase your energy, but it also helps calm the mind when you feel tired or hazy from the cold. Flu Time’s purifying properties can also help cleanse the air to help you avoid getting sick during the holiday season.

With the cooler temperatures and shorter days, many of us spend more time indoors, creating the perfect environment for sickness to spread. Help fortify your immune system throughout the Winter season and boost your emotional health by keeping Flu Time within reach.

6. Peppermint

Can’t seem to get out of bed in the morning? Are you experiencing body aches from the cold? Apply Peppermint oil to the back of your neck and temples to feel a boost of energy that will get your day started. With a strong soothing sensation, Peppermint gives your body the relief it needs and allows for optimal recovery. Soothe your aching back or sore muscles with Peppermint and melt away any tension!

Plus, diffuse Peppermint oil or use a couple drops of it in your cleaning supplies to give your home a refreshing Wintery scent that will put you in the mood for the holiday season right away!
