Aromatherapy blends for diffusers

When it comes to setting a mood in my home, I often turn to scented candles and incense. But lately I’ve been relying quite a bit on my aromatherapy diffuser and realizing just how versatile —and healthy — it can be.   

The diffuser I have is much like the inexpensive one shown here. It uses ultrasonic technology to create a fine, cold mist. Just fill it with water and add some essential oils. The water and oils are quickly diffused throughout the room and linger for quite awhile.  No heat is used, which means the essential oils' therapeutic benefits aren’t compromised.

When I first started using the diffuser, I used already prepared essential oil blends such as those sold by Plant Therapy Essential Oils. My favorite one, which I’ve continued to use throughout the winter, is their Germ Fighter Blend. It contains essential oils of Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon, Rosemary and Thyme. I’ve also just started experimenting and creating my own blends.

Here are a few of the mixes that I’ve enjoyed so far. If you have any essential blends that you’d like to share, please be sure to do so. I’d love to hear from you. Thanks!

For eliminating unpleasant odors:
- 1 drop eucalyptus oil
- 2 drops lemon oil
- 6 drops bergamot oil 

For lifting the spirits:
- 2 drops geranium oil
- 3 drops sweet orange oil
- 4 drops clary sage oil 

For reducing stress:
- 2 drops patchouli oil
- 3 drops rose oil
- 4 drops lavender oil
