12 Days of Christmas DIY Hot Holiday Cheer Beverages

Create your own holiday cheer and memories and splurge a little with these two hot holiday beverage favorites for our final and last post in the 12 Days of Christmas DIY series. They too make good holiday gifts.

DIY Hot Holiday Cheer

Enjoy a cup of holiday spirit while sipping on some homemade Hot Buttered Rum while putting together toys and wrapping gifts this Christmas Eve.


    1 cup butter
    2 cups light brown sugar
    2 teaspoons Nutmeg Vitality essential oil
    2 teaspoons Cinnamon Vitality bark essential oil
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    Apple cider- hot
    1 shot of good quality rum OR… use 2 tsp rum extract for alcohol-free version

DIY Hot Holiday Cheer 2
Place apple cider in pot and heat on stove.
Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer; add essential oils and vanilla extract and mix well.

Use 1 heaping Tbsp mixture to 1 shot rum per 8 oz of hot apple cider.



After stashing your perfectly wrapped gifts under the tree prepare a cup or two of homemade rich hot cocoa to put a finishing touch on the evening. Between the hot buttered rum and the warm milk you’ll hopefully be off to dreamland in no time.



    6 squares (1 ounce each) Ghiradelli Semi-sweet Baking Chocolate
    3/4 cup Hersheys Special Dark cocoa
    3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
    2-3 drops Cinnamon Bark Vitality essential oil
    dash salt

Combine semisweet baking chocolate, dark baking cocoa and confectioners sugar in food processor and process until crumbly. Add 2-3 drops cinnamon bark essential oil and continue processing until well mixed.

To use, add 2 tablespoons mix to 3/4 cup hot milk.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this 12 Days of Christmas DIY series and learned some more easy ways to incorporate essential oils into your everyday lifestyle.

Blessings on your journey… Merry Christmas, and happy OILING!
