Looking for essential oil diffuser recipes for every occasion? You’ve come to the right place.

We’ve officially moved beyond the days of Glade plug ins and Febreze-ing the shit out of everything. Those smells are sickeningly artificial, and you can feel it when your throat gets accidentally slathered with poisons that smell like prim roses.

It’s time for an upgrade. Essential oils are the way to go.

NOTE: I only recommend doTERRA essential oils because I know they are high quality, pure oils that are ethically sourced. A lot of other essential oils have synthetic fillers in them, and what’s the point of replacing Febreze with essential oils if those oils are also filled with unhealthy synthetics?

Disclaimer: Yes, I am a Wellness Advocate for them, and if you buy something from my store, I may make a small commission. But I don’t recommend them because I’m a Wellness Advocate. I’m a Wellness Advocate because I recommend them, and because I truly believe they are the best oils currently on the market.

I don’t know about you, but in the past I haven’t usually given a whole lot of thought to the way my house smells. It smells the way it smells and I don’t really notice it.

Until I have guests over and I walk in with them trailing behind me. Then all of the sudden I realize that maybe it’s a bit stuffy in my apartment. Or perhaps I can suddenly detect a note of the kitchen garbage that needs to be taken out. Maybe you can relate.

My new secret weapon: my essential oil diffuser!

Not only does my diffuser make sure my house smells amazing when I have people over, but it also boosts my mood whenever I walk into the room. I love it!

I have a couple different diffusers, and I keep one in my bedroom and one in the living room. The one in my bedroom is the Aroma Lite diffuser from doTERRA. This one is quiet and compact, and is great at what it does. It has an optional light (no colors, just neutral), as well as time settings of 4 and 8 hours.

The one in the living room is the Lumo Diffuser. This one has time interval settings of 2 hour , 5 hour, and even 10 hour settings. In terms of light, this one has a soft white and also an assortment of other colors.

Personally, I just like the white, but if you want to use your diffuser to turn your room into a night club, you do you!

Both diffusers have the option to not have a light on at all.

If you’re interested in purchasing a diffuser, or any of the essential oils I mention in this post, head on over to my doTERRA store!

Below are 10 diffuser recipes to suit different moods and occasions. I’m sure you’ll find one that you love.
