    Some of these seem like they use a lot of oils. Are these recipes meant to be pre-blended, then put into the diffuser with just a few drops of the blend? Does that make sense?

    • Hi Cathy! You could use these four blend recipes a couple of ways, since different diffusers call for varying amounts of oil drops. Pre-blending them then adding the appropriate amount into your diffuser is a great idea! Otherwise, you can use these blends as a general guide for oil ratios for your particular diffuser. Hope this is helpful!

    I love just Jasmine on both of my wrists. It smells amazing all day, like I’m on a deserted Island.

  • Pauline L. Bruch

    I too appreciate all the recipes that have been posted lately. I love trying new recipes. I love all the oils I have tried so far. I love Young Living!

  • Autumn

    Do you mix these oils with the v-6 and use as a roll on or in the diffuser?

    • Thanks for your question, Autumn. The blends listed are suggested for use in a diffuser. However, you may choose to mix them for topical use if you would like. Please refer to the usage directions on each individual product label for topical use instructions.


    What blends would you use for headaches?

    I am a newbie also. I am looking for some body mist recipes. Does anyone have some?

    What has anyone tried on wasp stings? I started out with eucalyptus and lemon and peppermint, no pain but next morning it’s large red space with a little swelling. And tHE STING LOOKS PUssy. Used cold compress on it too.

  • Sharon

    These recipes sound wonderful. Just getting started. Would love to try the Floral Rush!! Can’t wait to get some of these oils.

  • Pat Dyke

    Thank you so much for recipes. Yes , there are some of us that require specific instructions.

    Thanks again and please keep them coming.

  • Sarah McBride

    I love trying out new oil combinations 🙂 One of my favorites to diffuse is Frankincense and Citrus Fresh.

  • Love these and can’t wait to try them! Here’s my list of summer blends!

  • Amy

    thank you for these recipes AND for the directions because I am one of those people that needed directions. I’m new and I would have put all of those drops in my diffuser.

  • Sue

    Some people I guess need exact directions, so if you can kindly add to the blog post to put into a spray bottle (for spritzing the air with a carrier oil such as…) and then take a clean 15 ml bottle and add the drops to make each of the recipes to a separate bottle, then from each recipe drop in a few drops to ones liking into a diffuser. 🙂 Thank you!

    • Kathie Bitzer

      Sue is correct. Many of us newbies need exact directions.
      Thanks for the summer recipes. I will be trying them.
