When most people think of aromatherapy, they think about relaxation. They reach for their essential oils to clear their minds and calm their spirit. But sometimes I’m just a little too relaxed and tired and worn out. It’s then that I reach for an Energizing Diffuser Blend recipe to put some pep in my step and help me finish the day strong!
How can you know if a combination is going to smell great diffused?
You don’t have to start out by pouring them into your diffuser. Convince yourself that you are going to love this blend by giving it a sniff right out of the bottle. Open the bottles and hold them in your hands together. Then pass them about 6 inches under your nose and inhale smoothly and deeply. You’ll know if it’s the right blend for your mood. If that one didn’t strike your fancy, don’t give up. Just move to the next combination or sub out another essential oil. It’s all up to you. These are just a few ideas to get you started.
