Summer Day Diffuser Blend

When the sun is shining outside, I want to be playing outside. Anyone else with me? But, some days work and responsibility call, and I’m left taking in the sunshine through my window.

For those days I created the Summer Day Diffuser Blend. This recipe is uplifting, helps me focus, and smells like a beautiful summer day with notes of citrus, fresh floral, and a hint of black licorice for interest.

Here’s the recipe so you can bring a summer day into your house too.


Add a drop of Head Soothing Essential Oil Blend.

Why I Love This Recipe

I love that this recipe keeps me focused when I’m stuck inside while smelling like the outdoors. It’s uplifting and relaxing which helps me enjoy my work until I can get back outside and enjoy the summer sunshine.
