As I have written about before, diffusing essential oils is a great way to make your home smell good. The bonus with essential oils is they affect our moods and mindsets.
Lemon, lime, bergamot, grapefruit, basil, peppermint (do not use if you have kids under 10 in the house or are nursing), thyme, tangerine, cypress and cedarwood, sandalwood, spearmint (do not use if you have kids under 10 or are nursing), ylang ylang, white fir, lemongrass (do not use while pregnant), eucalyptus (do not use around kids under 20 or while pregnant) and cinnamon (do not use while pregnant) are all uplifting and energizing.
Rosemary (do not use around kids under 10 or while pregnant), frankincense, lavender, Douglas fir, cypress, juniper berry, sandalwood, ylang ylang, vetiver and black pepper are all great for helping to focus and concentration.
My go-to is:
- 3 drops lemon
- 3 drops lime
- 1 drops basil
Before diffusing, please make sure you read these posts if you have not already done so, since they tackle safety using essential oils in this method:
