Summer Diffuser Blends and Recipes

Lately, my family and I have been diffusing in our RV 24/7. When I went back to work (outside the home) last fall, the only time we really had our diffuser running was a night for bedtime, because we were all out of the home during the day. Now, with all of us home, we’ve got our diffusers running constantly. Here are a few of my favorite blends so far this summer.

Rise and Shine Blend
3 drops Tangerine
2 drops Peppermint (or Spearmint, if that’s your jam)

I like to diffuse this blend in the mornings, especially if I had a late night. I’ve made nights my time to write, so with that comes some grogginess in the morning. This blend is great for waking me up and getting rid of any grumpy morning moods! P.S. If you don’t have Tangerine, you can use any citrus oil. Lemon and Wild Orange are awesome too!

Stress Less Blend
3 drops Balance (Grounding Blend)
2 drops Jasmine
1 drop Frankincense

This blend is heaven, y’all. I use this blend topically A LOT at work or before going into a therapy session, when emotions are running high. It’s so helpful to calm any crazy or intense emotions that tend to rise in the afternoons. You can also try these hot teas listed below to help mellow the mood!

Immune Support Blend
3 drops OnGuard
2 drops Lemon
1 drop Frankincense

If one of my kiddos feels like they’re getting sick, I’ll start this blend right away. Thankfully, they haven’t been sick this summer, but I’m still diffusing this blend occasionally. When all this crazy-Corona madness began, this blend was going all the time. Now, I’ll incorporate it in our week once or twice to keep our immune systems strong and healthy.

Breathe Easy Blend
2 drops Lavender
2 drops Peppermint
2 drops Lemon
2 drops Breathe (Respiratory Blend)

Anyone else having a hard time breathing with all the Saharan dust? Maybe there’s an increase in some type of pollen in your area, and it’s got you all wheezy. This blend helps to promote clear breathing, a healthy respiratory system, and will fight against those season threats in your area. I also like to dilute this blend in a roller bottle and apply it on my kiddos spine when they need it.

Sleep Tight Blend
4 drops Balance (Grounding Blend)
3 drops Serenity (Peaceful Blend)
1 drop Frankincense

My 7 year old will without-a-doubt ask me to turn on the diffuser before they go to bed. I use these oils so often, I just leave them out on the counter. This is my go to blend for sleep. The woodsy blend of the Balance pairs beautifully with the florals of Serenity, and they work together so well to help my kiddos fall asleep and stay asleep.

I hope you find these blends a helpful addition to your summer diffuser blends. I’d love to try one of your family’s favorite diffuser blends. What’s in your diffuser?
