I shared a few of my favorite diffuser recipes for springtime a few months ago, so I thought I’d keep the ball rolling and share a few that I’ve been using now that we’re starting to head into summer. This weekend is the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada and it’s kind of like our unofficial start of summer, so this seems like a great time for us to get our homes smelling like summer!
Using essential oils in your diffuser is a great way to scent your home because it’s all natural and the essential oils themselves have been shown to help a lot of people with different ailments like headaches, fatigue, congestion, food cravings, and all kinds of other things! So there are benefits other than just having a fresh smelling home, which is awesome!
These recipes that I’m sharing today are just things that I’ve come up with using some of the oils that I have on hand at home. I like to play around with different scent combinations and see what they remind me of.
This first one reminds me of being on a wooded campsite on a hot summer day as soon as I put it on. I find it to be kind of energizing and yet comforting at the same time. Camping is one thing about summer that we look forward to all year, so I’ll definitely be diffusing this one a lot over the next few months!
“Campsite” Diffuser Recipe:
3 drops lime essential oil
4 drops grapefruit essential oil
2 drop cedarwood essential oil
This next one is really bright and fresh and makes me feel like I’m drinking some kind of fruity drink on a patio next to the water somewhere. Not that that happens all that often, but at least my home can smell like it!
“Tropical Mojito” Diffuser Recipe:
4 drops lime essential oil
2 drops lemon essential oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil
Who doesn’t love a beach day? This last recipe is one that is sweet but has that little bit of briskness to it, just like the breeze you get off the water when you’re at the beach!
“Beach Day” Diffuser Recipe:
4 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
1 drop eucalyptus essential oil
1 drop rosemary essential oil
I should mention that the oils that you see in the pictures are the oils that I usually use at home and they’re from PURE, where I get most of my essential oils. You need to order directly from them, so let me know if you’re interested and I can get you some more info. Just leave me a comment or send me an email. ???? The PURE oils go through 9 different purity tests and are super high quality. They’re also about 1/2 the price of a lot of oils that you can get from the other big essential oil companies so that’s why I almost always buy from there. ???? I linked to some oils from other manufacturers in this post for your convenience so you can see what the bottles look like or buy them instantly through Amazon. This brand that I’ve linked to is the brand that I usually go with if I’m out of something and need to pick it up from a local store and don’t have time to wait to get my PURE order for that month. I find that if I don’t provide enough info about which essential oils I choose and why in these posts, that someone always asks to have that part of things explained a little better. So if you want to know more about this (or anything else I write about ever, just drop me a line or leave me a comment!)
Do you have any really summery blends that you like to use in your diffuser?
