20 Simple Essential Oil Combinations For Diffuser by Loving Essential Oils

Not wanting to pull out or look up any recipes? Sometimes I like to keep things really simple when diffusing essential oils. Here are 20 Essential Oil Combinations for Diffuser that are simple to grab and diffuse.

This post is not like my usual diffuser blend posts where I give you the exact recipe, this is a list of essential oils that combine together beautifully, especially when diffused.

These are really powerful aromatherapy duos, don't let the simplicity fool you! There is a Printable Cheat Sheet at the bottom of the post, be sure download it.

What are Essential Oil Blends?

Essential oil blends are mixtures of essential oils that are combined for a specific therapeutic purpose. Blends can be composed of oils that are all from the same botanical family or from different families. The blends can also be composed of essential oils that have similar therapeutic properties or that are complementary to one another.

How to Use the Combinations of Essential Oils in Your Diffuser

How are Essential Oil Blends Made?

Essential oil blends are typically made by combining different essential oils. If you will be applying them topically, you will need a carrier oil, such as jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, or grapeseed oil. The blend can be applied to the skin or a bath. If using combination blends aromatically, like adding to a diffuser for inhalation, no dilution is required (only for topical application).

How to Use the Combinations in Your Diffuser

Diffusing essential oils can be really easy and fun. Initially, it may be a little foreign but after a short time of diffusing, you will get the hang of it and become comfortable experimenting with oils and different combinations.

To use the combination in your diffuser, just grab the two oils listed for your desired use and place a few drops of each into your diffuser with the recommended water amount your tank requires...that's it! I told you this was simple.

How Many Drops of Essential Oils Should I Use in My Diffuser?

I try to keep the total drops for my diffuser between 5-10 drops. The number of drops really depends on several factors, here are some:

  • Children or pets around, use less total drops
  • Strong essential oil, use less drops (of that oil at least...patchouli, vetiver, ylang ylang, etc.)
  • Large room, use more drops
  • Want a strong aroma to fill the area, use more drops
  • Want a gentle aroma, use fewer drops

Remember this isn't an exact science and you really can't make a mistake. The worst that can happen is you do not like the combination, in that case, cross it off and continue on. If it was too strong or not strong enough, just change the number of drops next time.

One thing I love about essential oils is that the aromatherapy combinations are really endless. This list could actually be much, much longer because there really are a lot of wonderful essential oil mixes.
