Summer Diffuser Blends with Fan Favorite Summer Oils

Summer Diffuser Blends with Fan Favorite Summer 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 oils.

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.

Fan Favorites for Summer

In a past essential oil giveaway poll, we asked our fans "What essential oil do you like to use during the summer?" This was a multiple choice poll and only one answer could be picked. Lavender essential oil was the number one choice! Here are the results:

  1. Lavender - 24%
  2. Peppermint - 19%
  3. Orange - 15%
  4. Grapefruit - 14%
  5. Lemon - 11%
  6. Bergamot - 7%
  7. Frankincense - 4%
  8. Geranium - 3%
  9. Juniper Berry - 2%
  10. Chamomile - 1%
