Summer Diffuser Blends

Summer is here! With that in mind, today I am sharing some of my favorite blends to diffuse in our home in the warmer months. You will find plenty of refreshing and invigorating blends containing citrus, herbs, mint and all sorts of summer goodness to scent your home with. The beauty of diffusing essential oils is that you can easily adapt or alter the combinations to your preferences. Love lavender? Add another drop! Don’t have any spearmint on hand? Substitute peppermint or another oil you have in your collection. The possibilities and combinations are endless.

You will find that all of these combinations are a total of six drops. That’s my preference and a general guidelines of diffuser maufacturers, but you can certainly adapt or alter according to your likes or diffuser needs.

Essential Oil Combinations for the Home

essential-oil-cleaning-combinations-for-the-home-clean-mama

If you’ve ever made a DIY cleaner, chances are you’ve added an essential oil or two to the mix.  I primarily use essential oils for cleaning and diffusing but there are oodles of other uses for them as well – but today we’re just talking about SCENT.  If you’re looking to branch out past lemon essential oil and customize the scent for your diffuser or cleaners, I have some favorite scent combinations for you.  Don’t be afraid to experiment and see what you come up with.

Lemon + Clove – my absolute favorite scent combination and signature scent – it’s homey, warm and inviting.
Lemon + Peppermint + Lavender – this is a great combo – clean and refreshing. I like it heavy on the lemon and lavender with just a drop or two of peppermint.
Eucalyptus + Lavender – if you like the smell of a spa, this is probably the combination they’re diffusing.
Melaleuca + Lemon + Orange – Melaleuca (or tea tree oil) is a natural disinfectant but has a strong scent.  I like to offset the scent with a little citrus to freshen it up a bit.
Lemon + Cypress – I love this combination for washing hardwood floors.  The woodsy scent of the cypress and lemon are a great combination.
Rosemary + Clove + Orange – If you’re looking for the perfect kitchen scent, this is it.  The herbal rosemary pairs really well with the clove and orange.
Cinnamon + Melaleuca – Cinnamon is a spicy scent that does a great job at toning down the melaleuca.

The rule of thumb for scenting DIY cleaners is 3-10 drops essential oil per 16 ounces of liquid (usually water and/or white vinegar).  Here are a couple recipes to get you started with – simply substitute your scent combo for mine:

Laminate Floor Cleaner
Fabric Sanitizer Spray
Non-Vinegar Hardwood Floor Cleaner
Vinegar Hardwood Floor Cleaner
Window + Mirror Cleaning Spray
Marble + Granite Cleaning Spray
All-Purpose Disinfecting Cleaner
All Purpose Spray
Laundry – soften + freshen
