This time of the year with the cool crispness in the air, I find myself yearning for Hot Apple Cider. Not only does it taste wonderful to me, I also love the aroma that fills my home.
Over the years I have tried many combinations of spices all tied up in my little cheesecloth bundle, but this year, well I decided to just use essential oils. After all, I have had such great results when using them in baking and cooking recipes so why shouldn't this be any different.
OH MY! Yes it was different - the BEST Apple Cider I have ever made!!! Or mix I have ever bought!!!
Why didn't I try this before? I don't know, but I'll never go back to the little spice bundles.
Try this recipe for yourself and see if you don't agree. Leave me a comment on what you think.

Cider Diffuser Blend
3 drops Wild Orange
2 drops Cinnamon or Cassia
2 drops Ginger
*Not all essential oils are safe to ingest, in fact most are not, even those that say food grade. This is why I am VERY particular about which essential oils I use.
