Anthropology Candles… they’re super expensive, and while you can find similar candles for much cheaper at Target, you don’t want what is in the smoke damaging your body, harming your mind, or causing further exhausted. Instead, try this Anthropology DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Blend!
I absolutely love this Anthropology DIY Essential Oil Blend in our diffuser. It seriously makes my home smell like an inviting spa… which often is something I desperately need being a homeschooling mom.
Every time I put this in the diffuser, I’m whisked away to a calmer mind and body, thoroughly enjoying feeling tension melt away as I indulge in a favorite snack or piece of chocolate.
Anthropology DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Blend Recipe
** PLEASE NOTE ** Don’t be fooled by clever marketing. Not all essential oils are created equally. Make sure you’re not wasting your money on fake essential oils, or oils diluted in questionable solvents. Don’t miss our guide on how to find quality essential oils to make sure you’re not wasting your money on brands that legally carry out questionable or unethical practices and mislead you through deceitful marketing practices.
Anthropology DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Blend
- 3 drops of Tangerine essential Oil
- 3 drops of Valor Essential Oil Blend
- 2 drops of Peppermint Essential oil
- 2 drops of Lavender Essential oOil
- 4 drops of Grapefruit Essential oil
- 3 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
** Please note, we use this blend in a larger living room with a vaulted ceiling and that is open to our kitchen. If you’re using this blend in a smaller space, I recommend mixing it in an empty essential oil bottle, multiplying the drops by 5 to fill it up… and then diffusing 3-4 drops of that mixture.
You can find the nebulizing diffuser shown in the photo is no longer available for purchase, but you can find a similar one on Amazon:
Where to Buy Quality Essential Oils
We purchase our oils through Young Living because they set a higher standard for essential oils than what the rest of the industry expects. Their Seed to Seal guarantee is unmatched, and shows their dedication to a farm-to-table type of approach.
Warning: DO NOT purchase your oils through Amazon or similar websites!
Any website that allows anyone to sell on, such as Amazon, eBay, Walmart… etc… are terrible places to purchase essential oils. While you may get a “good deal,” knowing who you’re purchasing from is difficult. There are many counterfeit essential oils being sold that are causing health ailments, major skin reactions, and a lot of misery. These are NOT high quality essential oils. They are fakes being sold purely for profit.
I also do NOT recommend purchasing from grocery stores, Walmart, Target, department stores, or drug stores. Many of the brands found at those stores have been proven to not actually contain any essential oil (which is perfectly legal to do).
I STRONGLY suggest you know the company that makes your oils, how the plants are cared for, what they do for distilling, how and how many times each batch is tested (and when), and their bottling processes. Many companies throw out fancy language for marketing purposes, but actually have no clue how their oils are made because the oils come from a broker (which are almost always diluted in solvents). Transparency is key.
I highly encourage you to check out our How To Find Quality Essential Oils post for in-depth information about why quality matters, and what to look for.
