essential oil diffuser recipes

So over Christmas, much to my delight, I was given an essential oil diffuser and mini oil collection to go with it!  I’d read lots about the benefits of essential oils and was keen to get experimenting with different essential oil diffuser recipes and blends.

Diffusing is such an effortless way to get essential oils into your body, in safe dilute amounts, as well as to just make a room smell absolutely gorgeous.  And using essential oils to scent a room, rather than a toxin-laden air freshener, has got to be one of the best choices you can make for your health!

Just to give you an idea of how to start putting blends together, the following are some of the key uses for a selection of the major essential oils:

  • Peppermint oil – energy boosting
  • Rosemary oil – memory boosting
  • Rose oil – mood boosting
  • Bergamot oil – uplifting and motivating
  • Lavender oil – calm and rest inducing
  • Ylang ylang oil – eases tension
  • Neroli oil – eases pain
  • Lemon oil – eases nausea
  • Clary sage oil – lowers cortisol
  • Jasmine oil – soothes cramps and mentrual pain
  • Eucalyptus oil – decongestant
  • Frankincense – anti-inflammatory
  • Sandalwood – sore throat and bronchitis
  • Tea tree – anti-flu, anti-virus and anti-microbial

So, you can quite quickly start to see, how you might be able to select essential oils and taylor-make a diffuser blend, depending on your specific needs or health requirements. And there are of course many other oils to learn about!
For now, here are some simple essential oil diffuser recipes to get you started…
