Our Pick: 10 Diffuser Oil Blends Worth Trying
Essential oil diffusers have become very popular recently, and almost every home you walk into has at least one essential oil diffuser going in any given room. The benefits of a diffuser are endless, and it is easy to see why everyone has one.
However, they simply pop a few drops of their go-to essential oil in the diffuser for many people and call it a day. This is because many different blends of essential oils can be used together to bring an entirely new smell and feel to the space.
Here are some of our favorite essential oil blends to add to your diffuser.
Lavender and Vetiver
Creating a nighttime routine is essential to your body, knowing that it is time to slow down and for your body to release melatonin so that you can fall asleep and stay asleep for a good amount of time and feel revitalized the next morning.
The smell is one of our strongest senses when it comes to triggering feelings, and for this reason, it is an excellent idea to create a bedtime smell. The perfect essential oil blend for this is equal parts lavender and vetiver.
Lavender and Bergamot
Feeling happy is a feeling that each and every one of us wants to feel daily. However, it is a little more difficult for some people to feel happy, and there might be days when you need an extra helping hand to get you into a happier mindset.
Lavender and bergamot will inspire feelings of relaxation and acceptance. But, still, it will also help you feel happier and more content within yourself and with your situation when you are dealing with it.
Ginger and Peppermint
Everybody has days when they feel under the weather and feel as though the only solution is to be sick to make themselves feel better. This dilemma might be particularly familiar to pregnant moms. We have a solution.
Mixing in equal parts ginger and peppermint in your diffuser will help you to feel less nauseous. Of course, we all know that ginger is beneficial for nausea, and drinking ginger beer is great, but smelling it is even better. Likewise, the peppermint brings about a fresh smell to help ease nausea.
Eucalyptus and Lavender
If you have breathing problems such as asthma or any other chest problems, you might know how frustrating it is when you’re having a particularly tough day breathing and you feel like nothing will help you.
Adding equal parts eucalyptus and lavender to your essential oil diffuser will help you feel more relaxed because you can’t breathe well, and the eucalyptus will open your breathing passages up.
Lemon and Grapefruit
We all know that the air that we breathe and the things that we put into our bodies daily can be extremely toxic to our bodies. But, unfortunately, there is no way around these toxic elements, and we simply need a good detox mix.
Mixing in equal parts lemon and grapefruit essential oils into your essential oil diffuser will detoxify the air around you. It will, in turn, help you to detoxify somewhat because of the citrus fruit mixture.
Lavender and Sandalwood
If you live a particularly stressful life or in a frustrating household, you might know the feeling of not being able to get a moment’s peace or feel calm at any point throughout the day. We have a solution for that, though.
Adding equal parts lavender and sandalwood to your essential oil diffuser will allow you to feel calmer and more relaxed in your own space. But, of course, it would be best to sit in the room while this blend diffuses to reap the full benefits.
Cedarwood and Rose
If you’re doing a little self-care Sunday, you will likely only want to feel peace and tranquility radiating from every pore and every part of your home or even just your bedroom. This blend will do the trick.
Mix equal parts cedarwood and rose to help promote a sense of peace and tranquility in the room. The rose will bring about a sense of belonging and peace into your space, while cedarwood promotes tranquility.
Rosemary and Peppermint
We have all had days when we feel as though we have the heaviest brain fog that there ever was. Nothing you’re doing is going right, and it seems like all you can do on that day is make a million mistakes.
However, there is a solution to this. Mixing equal parts rosemary and peppermint into your essential oil diffuser will help you to clear your mind and lift the brain fog that you might be having.
Sweet Majoram and Orange
There are moments in all of our lives when our peace is disturbed. Whether that be by a family member, a coworker, or something else that was completely out of our control, we need to find a way to solve it.
Mixing two drops of sweet marjoram and two drops of orange essential oil into your essential oil diffuser will help to promote peace and harmony in your space so that you can feel more at peace with your situation and yourself.
Lime and Black Pepper
There are days when we feel like all we want to do is crawl back into bed and have a good cry. It can feel like at that moment, you’re extremely weak, and there is nothing that you can do to help yourself.
It might be difficult to do anything really significant when you’re feeling weak. Still, one thing that you can do to begin helping yourself feel better is to mix equal parts lime and black pepper into your essential oil diffuser to promote strength.
