5 Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Meditation

Diffuser Blends for Meditation

Essential oils have the potential to play an incredibly subtle yet profound role within meditation. Before, during and after we meditate, they have the ability to help calm and open our minds and ground our bodies.

This selection of essential oil diffuser blends were mindfully created to help ground and center you and support your intentions as you meditate or practice yoga.

Everyone can respond to essential oils and blends differently. These blends are offered as a starting point and as inspiration in discovering the blends that help to enhance and nurture you best as you meditate.

Essential Oil Conservation and Sustainability Considerations

Several of the essential oils that are most widely appreciated for their beneficial role within meditation come from plants that are threatened. When using these particular essential oils in your meditation and other blends, it's important to be sure that you are purchasing them from companies that ensure sustainability in their practices.

For more information, see AromaWeb's Guide to Essential Oils and Sustainability.


  • Select one of the essential oil diffuser recipe blends shown below.
  • Create the blend by adding the proper amount of each essential oil to a dark-colored glass bottle.
  • Once you try the blend and confirm that it benefits you, you can double or triple the batch. However, when adding essential oils to your diffuser do not exceed the number of drops suitable for use in your particular brand and model diffuser.


These blends are intended for diffuser use by adults. Less is more with essential oils. These blends are undiluted and some blends contain phototoxic oils. They should not be applied topically. Because these blends include essential oils that can be very relaxing, avoid diffusing these blends while driving or when you need full focus. Be sure to follow all safety precautions and always research the safety info and contraindications for each essential oil that you are considering working with. Aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment.

To Use

  • Add 1-3 drops of one of the below blends to your diffuser.
  • Every diffuser is different, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions that came with your diffuser to know how many drops is appropriate to add to your particular diffuser. Thicker essential oils and citrus oils must be carefully used in particular types of diffuser models including atomizing and ultrasonic diffusers. Check the instructions that come with your diffuser for specific information.

Meditation Diffuser Blend #1

All three of the essential oils called for in this beautiful meditation blend are distilled from resins. Resins have traditionally played an important role in meditation, spirituality, and subtle applications.

Meditation Diffuser Blend #2

Palo Santo Essential Oil is steam distilled from the dead wood of this revered tree. Palo santo and juniper berry oils are said to help clear the area of negative energy. Virginian Cedarwood Essential Oil is grounding and combines wonderfully to help support mindfulness and meditation.

Meditation Diffuser Blend #3

Sandalwood and patchouli essential oils are both deep, powerful oils that are grounding and calming. Bergamot Essential Oil, is a beautifully calming citrus oil that helps to balance and sweeten the blend.

Meditation Diffuser Blend #4

Anecdotally, I have heard several accounts that have suggested pairing of frankincense and helichrysum oils for meditation and spiritual applications. I personally find the two work well together for supporting meditation. I enjoy adding a touch of Sweet Orange Essential Oil to soften and sweeten the blend and uplift my space.

Meditation Diffuser Blend #5

Cistus Essential Oil is a beautifully grounding and supportive essential oil that blends synergistically with sandalwood and Virginian cedarwood oils.
