How to choose an essential oil diffuser blend

How do you choose an essential oil diffuser blend when putting essential oils into your diffuser? There are a variety of factors I use in order to decide which essential oil blend I’m going to use in my diffuser at any given time. 

Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing an essential oil diffuser blend: 

  1. You can diffuse any 2-3 oils you want at any time and for any reason. The other suggestions are merely that and you just ideas on how to get the maximum benefit from any essential oil diffuser blend that you choose to use. 

     2. Think about the mood you want to create or the effect you are wanting to have.  Are you wanting to boost energy? Are you wanting to increase your quality of sleep? Are you wanting to feel more passionate or motivated? Are you wanting to boost your respiratory system? Each one of these things you require you to use a different essential oil diffuser blend. 

     3. Take a look at what diffuser blends others are using- Check out my pinterest board dedicated to essenital oil diffusers and diffuser blends. 

   4. Begin experimenting with various essential oil diffuser blends. Over time you will find your favorites. For example some of my favorites include eucalyptus and peppermint, wild orange and peppermint and douglas fir and spearmint. 

  5. The best combinations usually include: 1 citrus and 1 floral, 1 floral and 1 woodsy, 1-2 citrus, 1-2 floral or combinations of mints.

1. DoTERRA’s On Guard® Protecting Throat Drops. Some of the key ingredients in these throat drops are Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, and Myrrh all of which will help you and your students stay awake and their immune systems boosted during studying hours.

2. Peppermint essential oil- Peppermint is a great oil to have on hand for those seemingly endless days when you get a bit tired and need an energy boost. I like to put one drop in a glass of water and drink it, or rub a few drops on my wrists and inhale. It’s also handy to have on hand for if your child eats something at the school cafeteria that doesn’t agree with him or her and gets a bit of an upset stomach. Then he or she can rub a drop over the stomach area to get some relief.

3. On Guard Plus Capsules- These are a must have for back to school and really throughout the entire winter season. Going back to school can make your child and you more likely to struggle with a weak immune system and being around lots of people who may or may not have strong immune systems themselves can make it even worse. These capsules have a combination of essential oils that can be used to boost your immune system and keep you and your child feeling healthy and well.

4. Digest Zen Essential Oil- These blend of essential oils including peppermint, ginger, fennel and anise is great to keep on hand for if your child is riding the school bus and gets a bit car sick, or needs some digestive support after eating.

5. Balance essential oil- This grounding blend can be used to help you and your child stay grounded and avoid major meltdowns, keep your sanity, and stay emotionally balanced. If you chose only one way to use essential oils for back to school, you may want to chose this one so that you as a parent won’t go crazy.

6. A 2 Z Chewables- These yummy tasting chewable vitamins for kids (adults can take them too) can be used to help make sure your child gets all the vitamins and minerals he or she needs to stay healthy and well. Getting all the vitamins and minerals your child needs from food is difficult and these chewables can help.

7. PB Assist Jr.- This delicious tasting probiotic powder for kids can be mixed in a yogurt, or smoothie or just eaten plain. Use it to help your child have a balance of good digestive enzymes in his or her stomach and to help him or her to maintain a healthy digestive system.
