Summer Diffuser Recipes (2016)

I’ve been trying out some diffuser recipes (shocking I know), and I thought I’d share them with you.

As is the case with just about all of my diffuser blends, these are very simple. I typically use only 2-4 oils, and just a couple of drops of each one.

Of course, you can get all fancy and add your own oils or add a bunch more drops. That’s totally up to you.

Summer is definitely one of my favorite times to experiment with diffuser recipes. And that’s not just because I live in Florida, where summer lasts 11.86 months.

It’s also because citrus oils are very common in summer blends. I love the citrus oils, and I think they make a great addition to any scent.

Summer Diffuser Recipes – Part 4

Summer diffuser series

Well, it’s the last Wednesday in June, and this is the last summer diffuser recipe.

It’s mind-boggling to conceive that the first half of 2015 is over. Before you know it, the stores will start stocking Christmas items on the shelves.

Oooohhh, sorry. I know that was uncalled for.

But in all seriousness, I found myself humming a Christmas tune yesterday.

I think the TV commercials must be sending subliminal messages or something.

But anyway….

This week’s recipe is definitely my favorite of them all. I tried diffusing the blend, not really sure how it would turn out.

And I loved it!

Here it is:

summer4

3 drops Tangerine

3 drops Lime

2 drops Geranium

At first I wasn’t sure about the Geranium. Because I’m not big on the floral scents.

But it really worked well for this blend. It had a strong aroma, but not overpowering. Very soothing actually.

So let me know if you love it. Or hate it.

Either way. I love the feedback.

Summer Diffuser Recipes – Part 2

Summer diffuser series

.

For this week’s summer diffuser recipe, I blended orange, lime, and lemongrass.

These scents are a bit subtle, so I had to increase the number of drops that I used in my first attempt at it.

Here’s the recipe:

 

summer2

4 drops orange

4 drops lime

2 drops lemongrass

As always, the recipe can be modified to your liking. Some prefer a stronger fragrance, and some like a more subtle aroma.

Another thing to consider is where you are diffusing. You won’t need as many drops in a smaller room, whereas a large room will require more drops.

Here’s a little info on these oils:

Lime* – lime essential oil is stimulating, which can result in increased mental clarity and creativity. It can also support a healthy immune system, aid in weight management, and support healthy skin. In addition, lime oil can provide antioxidant support.

Lemongrass* – lemongrass essential oil can help support the digestive system

Orange* – orange oil can help enhance the flavor of foods.

The cool thing about these oils is that they are readily accessible as far as production goes, so they won’t break the bank.

AND, right now – for a LIMITED time – Young Living is throwing in a BONUS oil with the purchase of a Premium Starter Kit! The bonus oil will be either orange, tangerine, or lemongrass (Young Living’s choice).

Eleven oils, a diffuser, samples….sounds like a great deal, doesn’t it?

So let me know if you liked this week’s recipe…or even if you hated it. I want the feedback. It helps for planning future recipes.

See you next week with the next recipe!

Summer Diffuser Recipes – Part 1

Summer diffuser series

.

Well, it’s hard to believe, but summer is here!

Ok, technically, not until the 21st.

But I live in Florida, remember? We get a head start on summer. Usually in March.

You know, right after we get over that brutal winter we had from February 15-27th.

Ahem.

So I had so much fun doing the Spring Diffuser series that I thought I’d try out some more recipes for summer.

And, as you’ll remember from the spring series, I like to keep it simple.

Two or three oils, usually commonly used ones.

I tried out this first recipe in the office where I work. I figured it would be a great way to get some feedback on how the blend of oils work together.

My co-workers loved this one.

I think you will too.

Here’s what I used:

 

lemonlimelavender

 

4 drops lemon essential oil

4 drops lime essential oil

2 drops lavender essential oil

 

Now, remember, you can adjust the recipe by adding or subtracting the number of drops of each oil in order to fit your fragrance preference.

If you’re new to essential oils, you can check out Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 11 oils, (including the lemon and lavender used here), and a super cool diffuser.

Or if you already use oils and you’d like to add a diffuser to your home (because, really, we can never have enough of these) – don’t forget to check out some of the diffusers I talked about in the spring series.
