10 Best Essential Oil Recipes for the Diffuser

One of my favorite things about using essential oils is that I can diffuse them. Instead of candles I now diffuse. Yes, I use the diffuser just to make our house smell nice but there are so many health benefits when using a diffuser. Essential oils can be dispersed in one room or throughout the whole house. I currently own 3 diffusers, one for the bedrooms, one for our living space and one for my preschool classroom, and to be honest I’d love a few more.

Essential oils being diffused into the air.

Essential oils are more than just a natural perfume. Because each essential oil has a unique chemistry and contains hundreds of chemical constituents they have a profound effect of your health and well-being, body, mind and emotions. Therapeutic grade oils such as Young Living can benefit your body and home by helping boost your immune system, reduce stress, uplift your spirits, improve rest,  and encourage better focus. The list could go on and on. When using a diffuser you are dispersing the oils into the air allowing you and your family to easily inhale the oils. Can’t get much easier than that! These are my favorite recipes that I use all the time for one reason or another. Hope these give you some new ways to use your oils or even encourage you to purchase a diffuser for your home. I promise you will NOT be disappointed.

    This is so helpful! Thanks!! Now i just need to get a diffuser. Is all of this safe when you are pregnant?

      Lindsey, No it’s not safe when you’re pregnant. In fact, there’s a lot of safety concerns with most of these recipes.

    Cannot wait to try these! I love my diffuser and use a lot of blends but when it comes to knowing what to make on my own I’m at a loss. Going to try the energy one tomorrow am!

    Hot tub cover is most vital from security point of view. Here
    at Denver Gutter Cleaning, we have seen it all. A cover will keep your tub water clean and hot and will lessen energy charges.
