Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

Essential Oil Diffuser Blends

Below are 17 aromatherapy diffuser recipes that can be used as inspiration for use in creating your own diffuser blends. If you're not already familiar with the different types of essential oil diffuser types available, you can easily learn all about them by reading AromaWeb's Guide to Essential Oil Diffusers.

Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

Shown below are 17 different essential oil diffuser blends. Select one and create the blend (most are in batches of 10 or 20 drops) by adding the proper amount of essential oils to a dark-colored glass bottle. Add the appropriate number of drops from your created blend to your diffuser following the manufacturer's instructions.

Be sure and familiarize yourself to the safety and contraindications of all essential oils you choose to use. Make the smallest possible blend first to make sure you like the blend before doubling or tripling the recipe.

Thicker essential oils, CO2 extracts and absolutes (vetiver, patchouli, oakmoss, sandalwood, benzoin, etc.) and citrus oils must be carefully used in partcular types of diffuser models including atomizing and ultrasonic diffusers. Check the instructions that come with your diffuser for specific information.

These particular aromatherapy diffuser recipes were developed specifically for the olfactory pleasure that they provide (that means they simply smell great!). Though they may affect your mood, they weren't formulated with specific therapeutic benefit in mind. For blends that may assist with your emotional well-being, see the Emotional Well-Being Section of the Aromatherapy Recipe area.
