So some of you may know that I’m a major essential oil enthusiast. Today I’m sharing with you the essential oil diffuser blends that I use most often.
I don’t really like to wear perfume as I find it just makes me sneeze. But if I do want to wear some kind of perfume, I’ll mix these blends with a carrier oil (like sesame seed oil) and put it into a spray bottle.
Peppermint, Lemon & Eucalyptus
This is my all-time favourite blend. It’s also great for decongesting colds and flus. It gives me a good feeling of relaxed focus when I smell it. I use 4 drops of peppermint, 5 drops of lemon and 3 drops of eucalyptus because I like it to be quite strong. You can alter it to your own preferences.
Lemon & Lime (optional: Peppermint)
Yes, like the drink. This is ultimately very refreshing. It smells like 7up and wakes you up a little bit. I like to use this in the middle of the day when I’m feeling a bit of an afternoon slump. It just refreshes me for the rest of the day. You can also add peppermint to this if you want that little bit of an extra boost. Use equal amounts of lemon and lime, and if you’re adding the peppermint, only use one or two drops.
Chamomile, Lavender & Ylang Ylang
This is a really relaxing blend. All of these oils promote mental and physical relaxation. Most people use __ drops of lavender, __ drops of chamomile and __ drops of ylang ylang. However, if you’re not really fond of anything too sweet like me, then add a few more drops of ylang ylang. This will take the edge of the sweeter oils.
Tea-Tree & Eucalyptus
I can only really describe this as a muskier scent. I always associate the smell of tea-tree oil with health and wellness, and eucalptus is often called the oil of wellness. I use this combination if I’m feeling like I’m coming down with something to attempt to ward it off. USe __ drops of tea-tree and __ drops of eucalyptus for the best effect.
Lemongrass & Chamomile
This is quite sweet. I definitely don’t use it as often as the others, but I thought I’d include it for any readers who like sweeter scents. Lemongrass is often used for its cleansing properties. Mixed with the calming chamomile, this can be quite a nice blend to end your day with. You’ll go to bed feeling relaxed and ready for a new day! Use __ drops of lemongrass and __ drops of chamomile.
Extra: Deep Blue & Lemon
I had my doubts about this one. Deep Blue smells a lot like Deep Heat products, and it works in a similar way for pain relief. I find the smell quite overwhelming on its own, but Aaron decided to mix it with lemon. This really took the edge off of the deep blue and made all the difference. I would use this if I’m having a morning shower to really wake myself up for the day.
So those are my top diffuser blends! If you don’t have a diffuser, you can still enjoy this form of aromatherapy by making your own! The smell won’t last as long but I still use this trick in a bath or shower, and going to bed.
I hope you found this post helpful and have found at least one new blend to try out! Let me know what your favourite blends are!
Until next time xx
