Essential Oil Blends for Every Occasion

Essential Oil Blends for Every Occasion

By: Molly McCarthy

As we learned in last week’s blog post, essential oils are more effective when blended together due to their synergistic nature. For example, lavender and orange oils are both great stress relievers, but they are even more powerful calming agents when mixed together!

The best way to use essential oil blends for emotional or immune support is to inhale them. When added to a diffuser, essential oils are dispersed into the air to be inhaled over time. You’ll want to add differing amounts of essential oils based on the size of your diffuser. A good general rule is to use 3-5 drops per 100 ml of water. The sample diffuser blends below are based on a 100 ml diffuser.

Sample Diffuser Blends:

For stress/anxiety: 2 drops ho wood 2 drops lavender 1 drop rosemary

For sleep: 2 drops lavender 1 drop orange 1 drop frankincense

For uplifting mood: 2 drops orange 2 drops lemongrass 1 drop geranium

For energy/focus: 2 drops lemon 1 drops peppermint 1 eucalyptus

For a cold: 2 drops peppermint 2 drops eucalyptus 1 drop tea tree

For immune boosting: 2 drops lemon 2 drops rosemary 1 drop tea tree
