Some of My Favorite Diffuser Blends

I am not always faithful about running my essential oil diffuser. But when I do get it started, I love the way it makes our sunroom smell! (We call it a sunroom, but it’s really a sitting room in the back of the house that the former owners added on in the 70s or 80s. It is the only room in our house with a television, and it contains our wood stove that we use to help heat the house in the winter.). This room is where we spend most of our time, so it is where I have my diffuser set up. I occasionally move it to the kitchen, but only once in a while.

Depending on the situation, I like to diffuse different oil blends. I don’t have a huge variety of oils, so I try to use what I have.

I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite oil blends to diffuse, so that maybe you will get some ideas to try in your own home!

Impending Colds

There are certain times of the year when my husband and I are more susceptible to catching a cold. For me, it’s about 2 weeks after school begins. I’ve had a cold at the same time for the past 3 years…right over our wedding and anniversary! I didn’t have these oils then, but I’m prepared for our next anniversary!

I like to put 4 drops of Germ Fighter synergy and 2 drops of eucalyptus in the diffuser to keep the germs away!

I also occasionally use this blend to defend against sickness: 2 drops frankincense, 2 drops lemon oil, 1 drop tea tree oil, 1 drop sweet orange, 1 drop rosemary, and 1 drop eucalyptus.


My husband loves the scent of cloves. So, in the fall, I like to diffuse 3 drops clove bud oil and 3 drops sweet orange to make the house smell warm and spicy!

Once in a while, I change this blend up by adding other oils. Here is a simple change, but it makes it smell a little differently: 2 drops clove bud, 1 drop cinnamon bark, and 3 drops sweet orange.


Sometimes, when I get home from school, I just need to chill, unwind, and relax. Plant Therapy has a synergy called Relax. I really like the way it smells! Two of the oils in the mixture are lavender and marjoram, and they smell great together!

I like to put 6-8 drops of Relax synergy in the diffuser. Sometimes, I diffuse 4 drops Relax, with 2 drops of marjoram and 2 drops of lavender oil just to add a little something to the synergy.


Plant Therapy has seasonal synergies, and I purchased one over the winter. I purchased their Snow Flurries synergy. It has a citrus-pine smell, and is great around Christmas time and January.

To add a little twist to this, I add 2 drops of clove bud oil, just for some spice and warmth.


Usually, if I want to diffuse something citrusy, I do it first thing in the morning. It livens up the room. I have three citrus oils, so I use all of them. I combine 3 drops of lemon essential oil, 3 drops pink grapefruit, and 2 drops sweet orange.

To add a little twist to this, you can add a couple drops of peppermint oil along with the citrus oils.

Wake Up

Some mornings, either weekends or over the summer, I like to diffuse 4 drops lemon oil and 3 drops peppermint oil. It is bright and uplifting.

Philadelphia Eagles

I will be very honest. I have never tried this blend before. My husband is an Eagles fan, so he is pretty excited about their upcoming Super Bowl appearance! I thought it would be nice to diffuse all of my oils with a green label the day of the Super Bowl! How will it smell? I do not know, but I am going to try it!

You may have tried some of these blends before. Or maybe something similar, but not exact. Or maybe some of these are brand new to you! Either way, I encourage you to try some or all of these diffuser blends!

Do you have any favorite diffuser blends? Do they have a specific purpose or do you just enjoy the smell? Feel free to share with the rest of us!

    1. My mom started using them, and I did some research on them and everything seemed to work well for me (quality, price, etc)!
