St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon so I wanted to share my favorite diffuser blends. Growing up St. Patrick’s Day to me was all about making sure I was wearing green and pinching everyone who wasn’t. Once I got to college, St. Patrick’s Day was all about drinking, having a blast with my friends and of course wearing green.  As I have got a bit older I wanted to know what St. Patrick’s Day was really about so I did some research. St. Patrick’s Day first started in the 17th Century as a religious celebration to commemorate the life of Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. The 17th of March is believed to be the anniversary of Saint Patrick’s death. In the 18th century, Irish immigrants brought the tradition to American and then Saint Patrick became a symbol of Irish heritage and culture.

Why is the color green symbolic? At first the color associated with St. Patrick’s Day was blue but after the Irish Rebellion it was changed to green. The Irish soldiers wore green while fighting the British (in their trademark red) and during the war the Irish sang called the “The Wearing of the Green”.
