How To Use These Fan-Favorite Summer Scents In Your Essential Oil Diffuser

Aromatherapy is a popular tool for inspiring a specific atmosphere using scent. These DIY summer essential oil diffuser blend recipes are no different. They inspire summer fun, and summer nostalgia during other seasons when you may be craving time away.

Using an essential oil diffuser is a great way to fill your room with inspiring aromas, setting your summer mood, reducing stress, and fostering togetherness.

If you're new to using essential oils, check out our guide to diffusing oils safely and only diffuse the oils for 10-20 minutes at a time with a 30-minute break, and see how your body feels. You may also want to consider drinking more water than usual in case the oils cause a detox reaction.

Essential oils are very concentrated, needing to be treated with respect to avoid injury or discomfort. If you diffuse too much for too long, you may begin to feel nauseous, dizzy, or disoriented.

Turn Your Summer Diffuser Blends into DIY Summer Perfumes

Enjoy the versatility of these favorite summer essential oil diffuser blends by turning them into perfumes or roller ball recipes.

To turn into a spray perfume, simply add the oil recipe of your choice to an atomizing spritz bottle, add a pinch of salt, and fill the rest of the way with 1:4 ratio of witch hazel and water.

To turn your diffuser blends into a roller bottle, simply add the oils to an empty roller bottle and fill the rest of the way with your favorite carrier oil.

A carrier oil can be any cold-pressed, seed-based oil (ideally organic and unrefined). This includes most cooking oil, like coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil. Personally, we LOVE using sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, and the V6 Carrier oil (made by Young Living). This is the best way to dilute your essential oils for topical use.

Need empty bottles? You can order them from any bottle supply shop that offers essential oil bottles or even off Amazon. Personally, we save our old essential oil bottles, remove the labels, and reuse the bottles with a roller fitment. On occasion, we indulge in a YL branded roller bottle (they're so pretty). To reuse your bottles, ensure they are clean by soaking the empty bottle disassembled in boiling water for at least 15 minutes. Then let dry. Need a fun roller bottle?

Non-DIY Summer Essential Oil Blends You'll Love

As a busy mom, I totally understand the fact that not everyone has time or the mental capacity to DIY everything. While doing the math needed to turn your DIY blends into premade blends in empty bottles (85 drops average in 5ml and 250 drops average in 15ml), it is much easier to just grab a pre-made essential oil blend.

My favorite summer essential oil diffuser blends to use in the diffuser come from Young Living. They're dedication to purity and transparency exceeds industry standards, and the oil blends they offer are highly effective and enjoyable.
