There are many reasons why people choose to diffuse essential oils. These Relaxing Diffuser Recipes focus on a few main essential oil attributes to allow you to genuinely experience a state of calm. These were some of the goals we had as we developed our recipes:
- Helps ease the mind from worry and normal, everyday stress
- Assists in releasing tension
- Clears the mind to allow you to be fully in the moment
- Provides a sense of grounding and security where you’re able to let loose
These essential oils are great on their own, and you can certainly diffuse an individual oil or blend. However, when you blend them they can amplify the relaxing effects to help create a peaceful aroma and calming effect on the mind and body.
