What I Love About This Unwind Diffuser Blend

essential oil calming blend

I love how the essential oils in the diffuser blend recipe work together to form a pleasing and relaxing aroma. It smells so good and really does its job in promoting calmness. I make sure to always have a diffuser and a master blend of this recipe right beside my couch.

What’s in This Essential Oil Calming Blend

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense Essential Oil is famous throughout history for a reason. Frankincense is mentioned in the Bible and is used in religious ceremonies because it is helpful in promoting a grounding and spiritual environment.

Orange Essential Oil

The intensely sweet, citrus smell of Orange Essential Oil is both comforting and uplifting. It’s a good addition to this recipe because it has a mood-brightening effect as well. In fact, in a study conducted, Orange Oil appears to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression1.

Tranquility Essential Oil Blend

Tranquility Essential Oil Blend really provides tranquility. The Lemon, Patchouli, Sweet Orange, Amyris, and Ylang-Ylang Essential Oils in this blend all contribute to its ability to provide a soothing effect when anxious feelings try to overwhelm your emotions.

Oregano Essential Oil

The herbal, peppery scent of Oregano Essential Oil is not only famous in the culinary world, but it is also noted in aromatherapy because of its warming and calming effect. If you are not a fan of its sharp herbaceous aroma, you can just skip it for this recipe.
