Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

If you want your home to smell great without the worry of nasty chemicals, then making your own essential oil diffuser recipes are a fabulous way to achieve this. Our sense of smell can be used to evoke happy memories, bring calm and serenity and also invigorate our minds. Making your own essential oil diffuser recipes blends is a great way to personalise your home with the scent of your choice. It is also a natural alternative to air fresheners and wall plug-ins; essential oil diffusers offer a safe and non-toxic way to scent your home.

To Make your own Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

You will need

  • Glass jar – preferably with a narrow top
  • Reed sticks – approximately 10 reeds
  • 100ml of Base Oil – We love fractionated coconut oil as it’s lightly scented and thinner than most oils. If the oils are too thick it will not travel up the reeds!
  • 30 to 50 drops of essential oils

Mix the base oil and essential oils together, check you like the scent, tweak if you don’t! Add the reeds and you are all set. You can, of course, use one single oil, but mixing a few together can create amazing scents and benefits for you and your home.

If you are using an electric home diffuser then the amount of essential oils you add to the water tank is considerably reduced. Most manufacturers advise 8 -12 drops, however, if you are new to essential oils you might be better starting with 3-4 drops and work from there.

Oil Blends for Diffuser

The beauty of using an essential oil diffuser is the fact you’re not limited to one fragrance. You can swap and change how you fragrance your home based on your mood and how you are feeling. If you are working or studying bring out the citrus. Citrus fragrances are known for their mood-boosting properties as well as helping with mental clarity.

Feeling tired or stressed? Nobody does it better than lavender or chamomile, but don’t forget cedarwood and the all amazing frankincense essential oil for ultimate stress-free times.

In the mood for love? Set the scene, dim the lights, play romantic music, and grab the massage oil. Infuse your room with the scent of Ylang Ylang, sandalwood, or rose to name a few.

As you can see essential oil blends you can use in a diffuser are vast and the possibilities are endless of how you can use these amazing oils to scent your home naturally!
