Lavender Diffuser Blend Recipes {free printable}

lavender essential oil diffuser blend recipes {free printable} -- sleep, stress, anxiety, sadness, cold, congestion, allergies, headache, nausea, deodorizing, bug repellent {doTERRA, Young Living, Plant Therapy}

I share lots and lots of DIY recipes using essential oils from magic shower cleaner to face serum for customized by skin type to headache balm, but the essential oil recipes that I use most often are diffuser blends.

 

In fact, the very first ever essential oil that I used was lavender in my diffuser to help with my sleep.  Like a lot of women, I used to wake up 2-3 times a night.  I’d hear the dog walking around, or my husband would turn over, or my mind would race with all the things I had to do the next day.  I just couldn’t seem to get the sleep I needed.  I was always tired and in a bit of a brain fog.  Then I starting diffusing avender, and all the sudden I started sleeping through the night.  In my opinion this was nothing short of a miracle, and that started my love of essential oils!  (read more about that and get my favorite sleep diffuser blend recipes here)

 

That was more than five years ago.  Since then I’ve learned that lavender essential oil not only helps improve sleep, but it can help relieve anxious feelings, keep mosquitoes and flies away, alleviate my headaches, and much more.

 

Diffuser Recipes Organized by Use

Since lavender essential oil is useful for so many different uses, I’ve organized the diffuser blends by therapeutic benefits.  Have a cold? Check out the blends in the “congestion, colds & coughs” section below.  Mosquitoes eating you alive? Try the “bug repellent” diffuser blends.  Trouble getting asleep or waking up during the night? See the “sleep” section for lavender diffuser blends to help you sleep soundly all night long.

 

Here are the 10 types of recipes you’ll find below.  There are several diffuser blends in each section.  Want more?  Be sure to grab the free printable.  It has all the recipes shown below PLUS another 2-3 diffuser blends for each therapeutic need.

  1. sleep
  2. stress relief
  3. anxiety
  4. uplifting
  5. congestion, colds & coughs
  6. allergies
  7. headaches
  8. nausea
  9. deodorize
  10. bug repellent

 

 

How to use diffuser recipes?

  1. find the diffuser blend you want to try – There are 40+ lavender essential oil diffuser blends to pick from below and on the free printable.  Find the one that suits your mood, find a new one to try, or find one that has the emotional/physical essential oil benefits you need.  If you don’t have a specific essential oil, don’t worry.  You can either substitute a similar oil. or try one of the other 40+ recipes.  There are sure to be a few for which you have all the needed oils.
  2. add water to your diffuser (tip:  be sure to stop filling below the little line inside your diffuser.  Ultrasonic diffusers need to have space at the top so that the water can move back and forth rapidly enough to turn into the cold mist that comes out of the top of the diffuser.  If you fill the water level too high, then you won’t get as much mist out of the diffuser.  Less water (more space at the top) equals more mist.  Too much water (little to no space at the top) equals little to no mist.)
  3. add the essential oils to the water (tip:  the diffuser blend recipes are written for 300ml diffusers, but you can easily adjust the recipes to work for any size of diffuser.  See the next section below for tips on how to adjust the recipes)
  4. put the cover on your diffuser
  5. plug in your diffuser and turn it on

How many drops of essential oil should I use in my diffuser?

These diffuser blends were created for a 300ml diffuser, but you can easily adjust the recipes to work for every size of diffuser.

150ml and smaller diffusers:  cut the recipes in half so that you use 3-4 drops of essential oil

200ml-400ml diffusers:  use the diffuser blends as is (5-8 drops of essential oil)

500ml and larger diffuser:  double the diffuser recipes so that you use 10-15 drops of essential oil
