      How do you use this one? Diffuser? How much to place in diffuser if so. Im new to this so…. sorry for all the questions

  • Terrie

    I have really loved so many of the Diffuser Blend ideas you’ve been sharing and these are no exception. Each on is lovely.

    We love the Spring Blossom blend….it is so fresh. The Hawaiian Sunrise is in 3 of our diffusers….yes, it is ahhhhhhmazing!!! And the Sweet Spring Renewal reminds us of a flower garden…it was a blend we very much needed after dealing with the aftermath of a heavy snowfall.

    Thanks so much for all the fun DIYs, recipes, and ideas. We so appreciate you.

  • Veronika

    Hi . I’m a new user just wondering if its okay to mix different oils altogether ? Or we need a few diffusers and turn them on together? Thanks a lot

    • Hi Veronika, You can mix oils together to create your own custom blends if you’d like. Thanks for stopping by with your question.

  • Stephanie Raymer

    Blend 1: Equal parts Joy, Stress Away, and Jade Lemon (or regular Lemon works too). At night, add Lavender. You will sleep well, and wake up happy and relaxed with a room that smells AMAZING!

    Blend 2: Equal parts Lavender, Eucalyptus Globulous, and Peppermint.

    Blend 3: Equal parts Purification, Thieves, and any citrus oil you like (I like Lemon or Grapefruit)

    I always put citrus oils in my diffuser, and Lavender when I go to bed. LOVE IT!

    • Just waking up from loading the diffuser with your Blend 1 + Lavender – slept amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  • Dora Martindale

    5 drops lime, 3 drops stress away, 1 drop Joy smells amazing.

  • L A Berry

    I am having problems smelling my diffuser, I am putting up to 12 drops per oil in it. Am I putting too many? Is it the fewer drops the better?

    • Hello! The amount of drops needed will vary with each diffuser. Please refer to your diffuser manual for specific recommendations. It is also important to note that some essential oils have a lighter aroma than others, feel free to add additional drops of oil if you prefer a stronger scent.

    • Melissa

      You may also try cleaning the diffuser.

  • Julie Chertow

    My favorite personal perfume blend year round is Jasmine & Clove. Sweet & spicy just like me!
    One drop of this blend can easily last for 4 hours. I am still getting compliments hours and hours later after only putting on one drop on!

    • Rachel B

      Great idea!

  • Cathy T

    I love Patchouli, Frankincense, and Thieves!! They are my wake up oils!!
