Do you love to diffuse essential oils?  I do.  And peppermint is one of my favorites.

 

It blends so well with florals, citrus oils, herbs, resins, and more.  And it can be used for so many different therapeutic uses, too – everything from easing congestion to improving focus & concentration to boosting energy.

 

There are more than 40 peppermint diffuser blend recipes below organized by 12 therapeutic benefits.

How to use diffuser recipes

  1. find the diffuser blend you want to try – There are 40+ peppermint 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.  Either you can 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
