What I Love About This Mother’s Day Diffuser Blend

This diffuser blend recipe smells amazing! It makes my home smell fresh which is perfect for when there are visitors coming over. But I extra love this recipe because it has calming effects when diffused.

What’s in This Blend?

Lemon Essential Oil

The citrusy, sweet, and fruity aroma of Lemon Essential Oil gives off that clean scent that uplifts anyone’s mood. It is great to diffuse if you feel tired or overwhelmed.

Marjoram Essential Oil

Marjoram Essential Oil has a floral, herbaceous, and sweet aroma that is very calming and soothing. It really complements well with the oils in this blend in terms of both scent and benefits. 

Ladies’ Choice Essential Oil Blend

Like the other oils in this blend, Ladies’ Choice Essential Oil Blend is also very soothing. It has a wonderful floral aroma that sets calmness in the atmosphere.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.

This recipe is safe to use with kids aged 2+.
