These diffuser recipes do more than just smell good – they’re also therapeutic. Diffusion is a powerful way to get the oils working inside your body – relaxing your muscles, calming your nerves and boosting your mood and immune system. Of course there’s nothing wrong with diffusing a single oil, as I love just using some oils on their own, but mixing them together to create great scents or benefits for the home opens up a whole new world.

When using essential oil diffuser blends and sprays for the home there are certain safety considerations to keep in mind, above and beyond the usual safety guidelines. Diffusers should be run for short time periods, five (5) to thirty minutes, then turned off for a few hours, not run constantly. If there are pets in the house, do not diffuse around fish tanks, reptiles, or birds. Be careful diffusing around mammalian pets and be certain that the pets are free to leave the room if it becomes too much for them.

Keep in mind that it’s recommended not to diffuse a blend with another blend. You can mix and match single oils or add another single oil to one blend, but don’t diffuse two different blends in the same diffuser.
