Essential Oil Recipe for Stress: Make Your Own Diffuser Blend

There are days that we can’t avoid stress. I’m constantly juggling work and kids and husband and home.

I do everything that I can to try to relieve stress for me and my husband, who works every day to make sure the Simply Earth Team provides the best products and customer service to Earthies. I came up with this diffuser blend to help combat our stress. With the Timber Blend included, it’s definitely a “man-friendly” aroma that guys will love.

Hi! Katie here, certified aromatherapist and creator of our Essential Oil Recipe Box, which includes this recipe this month.

Being stressed makes us much more prone to getting sick, and who has time for that??? My husband loves this aroma, and I love having a little break from my regular floral scents.

Cardamom Essential Oil

This oil is calming and blends well with the other two oils: Lavender and Timber Blend.

Lavender Bulgaria Essential Oil

Lavender Essential Oil is known for its calming and soothing aroma.*

Timber Essential Oil Blend

Much like Cardamom and Lavender, this blend is also calming. However, Timber balances the overall aroma of the recipe so that it can be appreciated by both men and women.
