What’s in This Valentine’s Day Diffuser Blend Recipe?

Lavender Bulgarian Essential Oil

Love the smell of flowers? Then you’ll love the aroma of Lavender (Bulgarian) Essential Oil. It’s super calming and blends well with many essential oils like Palmarosa and Peru Balsam. You will never go wrong with this in your diffuser!

Palmarosa Essential Oil

Diffusing Palmarosa Essential Oil will help disinfect the air. It has antifungal and antibacterial properties, so you can take care of your home naturally.

Peru Balsam Essential Oil

Adding Peru Balsam Essential Oil to this recipe will add a vanilla aroma which helps give this blend a candy-like smell.

Things to Remember When Using This Valentine’s Day Diffuser Blend 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.

Because this Valentine’s Day diffuser blend recipe uses Peru Balsam Essential Oil, it is safe to use with kids age 10+.
