6 Great Benefits of Meditation + Diffuser Blend Recipe

There are several types and benefits of meditation, but when I think of meditation, automatically I think of someone sitting on the ground criss-cross applesauce, fingers making the “ok” symbol along with “hmm” sounds. 

Turns out, meditation is a lot more than that. Meditation is the habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts. It can be used to build healthy habits, increase focus, and more. 

Meditation Diffuser Blend, benefits of meditation

Katie here, I’m an aromatherapist for Simply Earth. I write blog posts and plan our subscription recipe box. I create the recipes you’ll find on this blog and use them. 

What I love most about this Meditation Diffuser Blend is that, even though I don’t meditate daily, this blend still helps me focus. It’s energizing, uplifting and helps clear the mind. So along with supporting meditation, it also supports focus in general.*

Ho Wood Essential Oil

5 ml Blend Bottle

If you love this blend, you can premix a master blend in a 5 ml blend bottle. These small bottles are amber to help blend last longer. Once you’ve made a master blend (premixed blend) all you need to do is add a couple drops from the bottle to your diffuser. 


The most common diffusers use steam to bring the aroma of the essential oils into the air. At Simply Earth we use this 80 ml diffuser and this 200 ml diffuser

Shilah, certified aromatherapist

Shilah is an aromatherapist for Simply Earth and uses meditation to calm anxiety and help her focus. Here’s Shilah’s thoughts on meditation:

Hey everyone. I wanted to pop in really quick to tell you how meditation (along with yoga) has helped me out so much! 

I have found that mediating a few times a week for 10 minutes or less at a time, along with doing some yoga really helps quiet my mind, and helps level out anxious thoughts. 

My thoughts can be racing around 1,000 times a minute, but after I do some quiet meditating I can finally think clearly.

I highly suggest learning how to meditate, even if it’s just 5 minutes a week!
