Essential Oil Diffuser Blends to Brighten Your Spring

Springtime, in general, feels pretty energizing. It’s nature’s time for renewal and rebirth so it’s only natural to want to boost your motivation and vitality. For some of us, it’s also the time of year when we throw open the windows and clear out all the junk that accumulated over the winter— both physically and mentally. Bright, refreshing and herbal aromas in your essential oil diffuser keep the “out with the old, in with the new” vibe going. Some of favorite springtime essential oils are lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus and anything in the citrus family. Using citrus scents in your essential oil diffuser is immediately uplifting and generally considered “happy scents.” Citrus oils like sweet orange, tangerine, and bergamot are used in aromatherapy to uplift the spirit, create a sense of joy and inspire creativity. All of these are perfect to compliment the rebirth themes of spring. Lavender and eucalyptus oil have also shown potential in actually reducing airborne fungi. Incorporating these two oils in your springtime essential oil diffuser blends helps literally freshen your air, which feels fantastic after being cooped up inside all winter long. Adding herbal scents to your essential oil diffuser bring in the green freshness of spring. Lemongrass, rosemary and lavender all have herbaceous, woody undertones that bring to mind a spring garden.spring-clean-diffuser-blend Here’s a quick list of some of great essential oil diffuser blends to try out during spring:

    Awesome Autumnal Essential Oil Diffuser Blends

    When you imagine fall what does it feel like? Ideally it would be crisp cool air, pine needles and leaves crunching under your feet, maybe the clarity and calmness of a walk in the woods. In reality it’s more likely to be back-to-school season and preparations for the holidays. In short, the busiest, most stressful time of the year. Luckily there are essential oil diffuser blends out there that can help you bring the fresh fall feeling indoors. Just the act of practicing aromatherapy itself has been recognized as a relaxing activity that can help lower stress, particularly in high school students. Using your essential oil diffuser while meditating can help you get even more into the right head space for relaxation. As the reigning relaxation queen of calming oils, lavender is always great to use in your essential oil diffuser when you want a peaceful atmosphere for letting go of tension. Patchouli oil is also considered deeply relaxing and useful for meditation before bed. The purifying woody aroma of tea tree has slightly minty notes that mix well with the earthiness of patchouli. Frankincense is a warm woody, slightly spicy aroma also used in aromatherapy to bring emotional balance. It’s often described as warm, comfortable, and inviting. Who wouldn’t want that in a relaxing essential oil diffuser blend? Rosemary is a relaxing herbaceous aroma, while pine needle is fresh woody mint reminiscent of the forest. Both inspire mental clarity in essential oil diffuser blends, which is fantastic for staying organized and on top of things. Although citrus scents might not be the first thing you think of when you think of fall, consider bergamot, sweet orange and lemongrass. Adding a dash of these to your autumnal essential oil diffuser blends brings brightness and energy for an invigorating uplifted quality. autumn-diffuser-blends
