10 Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

It's time for this month's Healthy Living, Healthy Home post!

One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is diffusing them into the air in our home. Today, I'm sharing my 10 favorite essential oil diffuser recipes and why I use each of them. I'm also participating in a fun oil giveaway with some of my oily blogger friends {and they're sharing oily tips, too!}.

I don't know about you, but I run my diffuser 'round the clock, y'all. I love how it can really change my mood. Below are some of my favorite combinations that I use in my home on a regular basis. There are some for focus, stress relief, wellness, and more.
If you're oily, you probably know that diffusers are a fantastic way to disperse oils into the air. I have diffusers spread throughout our home and use them constantly. They are just one wonderful way to experience oils...but quite possibly my favorite! Here are some of my favorite essential oil diffuser recipes and what they're for:

LAVENDER + VETIVER + CEDARWOOD | FOCUS BLEND
I diffuse this one in my office later in the day...usually after the kids are home. They do their homework in my office and it helps keep us all on task around that brutal 3 o'clock slump. I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's three drops each}.

PEPPERMINT + CLARITY | FOCUS & WAKE UP BLEND
This is my morning focus blend I use at my desk. I've been using it since last summer and it's probably one of my absolute favorites, in terms of actual scent. There is actual Peppermint in Clarity, but I like to amp it up a bit {Peppermint really helps me wake up!}. I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.

PEPPERMINT + JOY + LIME | GOOD DAY/HAPPY BLEND
My husband came up with this one...he loves to concoct things {although his spice cabinet privileges often get revoked because of his craziness at times! Ha!}. But, there's something about this blend that really makes me smile. I love to diffuse it in the morning while we're all getting ready for the day. It's just...happy. Ironically, I don't care for Joy on its own {the scent...it does make me happy...just don't love its scent}. But, I fell in love with it after he concocted this one. We'll never be without our Joy now. I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's three drops each}.

STRESS AWAY + LEMON | RELAXATION SUPPORT
This is my personal preference when I'm stressed out. It's a light blend. The Stress Away can settle my nerves and the Lemon is very uplifting in its properties. It's a beautiful scent, too. I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.

LAVENDER + LEMON | RELAXATION/SLEEP
I use this in our room and our kids' rooms at night sometimes. I especially use it when anyone is having a rough time with sleep. There are other oils I will apply topically for sleep, but if I really want to keep Mr. Sandman around, I add this one to the diffuser as well. I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.

ORANGE + BERGAMOT + CEDARWOOD | ANXIETY RELIEF
We have some anxious people in our house {not going to sugar coat this...I'm pretty much the ring leader of that}. But this is a great blend that may help with that. This one I play with the parts depending on our mood. The Bergamot is amazing for worry...so, I will go heavier on it at times. Often, I do four drops of Bergamot and two of the others. You can definitely play with this one.

THIEVES + ORANGE | WELLNESS & AIR PURIFICATION
I talk about Thieves a lot and how it may be FANTASTIC for immunity support {in our experience, it has been for us}. Combining it with Orange gives it an extra kick of Vitamin C. I also think this spicy combo smells just like Christmas...so nice! I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.

TEA TREE + EUCALYPTUS | SINUS ISSUES
This is definitely not the only blend I use when I want to support our sinus health, but this one I use often. It's great to have diffusing in the air when I want to promote a strong respiratory system and easy breathing. Others good for this are RC and Raven, both make your house smell so CLEAN! I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.

PURIFICATION + LEMON | AIR PURIFICATION
Burn the dinner? Have a stinky house? This blend always comes to my rescue for those issues. I love how fast it works, too. It's also great to run to promote all around wellness. I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.

ORANGE + ROSEMARY | JUST PLEASANT AND LOVELY
I don't really have a reason I diffuse this one...I just like the smell. The Rosemary is a good one for focus and thinking and Orange is very uplifting...I have noticed I gravitate towards using this one while I work. Perhaps, my subconscious knows this one is a good one for office work? I do equal parts of each {in YL's Home Diffuser, it's two drops of each}.
