If you’ve been around for awhile you know that I love essential oils and use them for different health-related reasons (Essential Oils + How I Use Them). I wasn’t always a believer, but darn it – they work! I was first introduced to them as a treatment for my migraines and the rest is history! One way I use oils is diffusing them in my house to create delicious smelling spaces. When I first began diffusing oils, I would only use one bottle and my scents were pretty straightforward (lemon, lime, peppermint, etc). Now, I’m an oil blending fanatic! Today I’m sharing the best essential oil blends to diffuse.
Best Essential Oil Blends To Diffuse
If you’re new to oils, you might be wondering ‘How does oil diffusing work?’ First things first – you need a diffuser. Oil diffusers come in all shapes and sizes (and price ranges), but I’ve linked the one I use because it’s compact and affordable. I have 2 in my home! Once you have your diffuser, you will use a total of 4-8 drops of essential oils in your diffuser with distilled water. Pretty simple right? Today I’m sharing my favorite essential oil blends to diffuse. Some I’ve discovered on my own, while others I’ve found thanks to Pinterest and my mom (the oil queen) 🙂
AUTUMN: 3 Drops Wild Orange, 2 Drops Cardamom, 2 Drops Cinnamon
FALL CIDER: 4 wild orange + 3 ginger + 3 cinnamon bark
ANTHROPOLOGIE: 2 drops each of Siberian Fir + Grapefruit + Citrus Bliss
SUNRISE: 3 Grapefruit, 3 Lemon, 1 Ylang Ylang, 1 Spearmint
CALMING: 2 Serenity + 2 Lime
MORNING BOOST: 2 Peppermint + 2 Wild Orange
CHRISTMAS: 2 Cinnamon + 2 White Fir
COOKIES: 2 Cedarwood + 2 Cassia + 3 Wild Orange
SUMMER: 3 Drops Tangerine, 3 Drops Lemon, 2 Drops Bergamot, 1 Drop Peppermint
Of course there are so many amazing blend options out there, but these are my favorites! I will say that I have a few oils that I enjoy diffusing entirely on their own. They are :
My top oils to diffuse while working: Peppermint, Wild Orange, Lime, Lemon
For stress: Lavender
For best results, just make sure you wipe down your diffuser about once per week to clean out any buildup or residue. I use rubbing alcohol and then flush it with plain distilled water and that seems to work really well.
