One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is to scent my home, especially during the holiday season.
Not only does it make our house smell lovely and give us that homey feeling, but it can help prevent illnesses from spreading depending on the essential oils used.
Essential oils will work to scent your home best if you diffuse them. There are many different ways to disperse essential oils, from placing your drops on a cotton ball to diffusing them in an electric diffuser.
Each blend contains the exact amount of essential oils to use in your diffuser at one time. But if you’re like me and you want to make a more considerable amount of the blend at once, that way you don’t have to gather 3-4 essential oil bottles and count drops every time you refill your diffuser, you can quickly make a larger batch of the blend.
Just multiply each essential oil amount below by 10 to get the right drops for a more significant batch. Add the correct amount of each essential oils to a clean, empty bottle, then insert your dropper top and cap the bottle. Be sure to label it with your blend’s name and how many drops to use in your diffuser.
