Top 6 Summer Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

Summer is in full swing, which means you’re probably enjoying more time in the great outdoors, visiting family and friends, and exploring new places. Whether you’re home or away, diffusing essential oils is a wonderful way to uplift your environment and experience the many perks aromatherapy offers. Below we share some of the benefits of diffusing essential oils and six of our favorite summer essential oil diffuser recipes that capture the spirit of the season and will leave you feeling energized, renewed, and refreshed.

Benefits of Diffusing Essential Oils 

Diffusing essential oils is a form of aromatherapy, which is a wellness practice that uses the aromas of essential oils to improve our wellbeing and to help us experience the connection between our body, mind, and spirit. 

When we diffuse essential oils we disperse the aroma into the air through a fine mist, which we can smell more easily. Your sense of smell is directly linked to your brain and plays a big role in your bodily responses and memory. Just like when you smell food and then feel hungry, when you smell certain essential oils you may feel more calm, energized, or at ease. Here are just a few of the many benefits of diffusing essential oils:

  • Promotes sense of wellbeing
  • Creates a calming environment
  • Enhances mood 
  • Boosts focus and concentration
  • Support clearer breathing
  • Repels bugs
  • Reduces odors
  • Refreshes your home

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
