We had a wonderful time at our first Herbal Holiday Giftmaking Playshop of the 2014 season. A beautiful group joined us, including a bright eleven-years-young herbalist-in-the-making, came to gather for an evening of herbal craft and fellowship.
We made herbal sachets, herbal tea blends, herbal seasoning blends, mulling spices, simmering scents, bath salts, and one of everyone’s favorites, aromatherapy sprays.
Aromatherapy sprays are simple to create and versatile to share! One of our favorite essential oil spray recipes is an all purpose holiday scent to inspire, uplift, and relax all at the same time. It brings in a holiday scent to any room with a cinnamon base, while citrus notes lift the spirit and patchouli helps to keep our mind grounded and centered.
Holiday Aromatherapy Spray
6.5 oz purified or distilled water
1 oz witch hazel (to preserve)
.25 oz Coconut Emulsifier (to disperse essential oils)
10 drops Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil

Happy crafting! Join us for our encore presentation of Herbal Holiday Giftmaking on Sunday December 7th at 6 pm to make your own essential oil spray and lots of other herbal holiday gifts.
