When my favorite candle company, Illuminations, went out of business in 2009, I was really bummed out.
Illuminations was the only store that sold candles that didn’t nauseate me, give me a migraine, or send black smoke pluming through the air. My very favorite candle was rosemary grapefruit, and the last one I owned is now a small slab with a pitiful buried wick.
Luckily, I don’t need scented candles anymore. Why? Because I have my essential oil diffuser and my list of trusty essential oil diffuser blends! Yay! :)
And, essential oil diffusers are even better than candles because they’re:
- Great to diffuse for sleep without worrying about burning the house down.
- Awesome at purifying and humidifying the air in your home instead of polluting it like candles do.
- Convenient and can be used anywhere there’s an outlet and a flat surface.
- Portable for diffusing at home, at work, or even in the car.
- Natural mood boosters, to relax and calm, invigorate and uplift, or ground and balance.
- For everyone – babies, kids, adults, elderly – in the home, workplace, gym, or car.
Awesome, right? Best of all, you can make your own essential oil diffuser blends. You can combine your favorite oils for truly custom scents.
So, let me share my 11 favorite essential oil diffuser blends with you to inspire you to get started.
