Summer Diffuser Blends - Fan Favorite Summer Essential Oils

One thing I love about aromatherapy is that I can enjoy summer scents any time of the year with Summer Diffuser Blends. I can create reminiscent aromas of the beach, a paradise escape, or a fresh garden with just a few drops of oil.

For summer I like citrus and floral essential oils because they remind me most of sunny days. I also enjoy mint and woodsy oils no matter what time of year it is.

Safety Guidelines

Diffuse 30 minutes to 1 hour at a time, read more about how long to diffuse oils.

It is best not to apply undiluted essential oils onto the skin. When using essential oils topically on the skin, be sure to dilute with a carrier oil like jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. 

Using essential oils can improve a person’s emotional, physical, and mental state. For best results, make sure you use pure essential oils and learn how to use them properly.
