21 Powerful Essential Oil Uses and Easy Diffuser Blend Recipes

Essential oils are very popular these days and for good reason. Their benefits and uses are endless!

They can be used for headaches, stress, immune support, curbing cravings to help with weight loss, and even to clean your home.

Essential Oils have so many uses. I love to use them in a diffuser. Different blends can be used for different moods and needs. Uplift your spirits or boost your immunity.

I use essential oils daily.

It may be frankincense oil on my face, lavender oil for a burn or a whiff of sweet orange for a quick pick me up.

Several times a week I have a diffuser going with a variety of oils depending on the time of year or if one of the girls is sick.

We always take oils with us when we travel because usually one of us gets carsick after several hours on the road especially if we’ve been reading.

Stock Up On Your Essential Oils

I’ve purchased oils from several companies over the years and I watch for sales so I can stock up so I always have a variety of oils on hand.

I usually purchase my oils from Amazon,  Simply Earth, or Isagenix.

If you are new to essential oils the Simply Earth Subscription Box is great for beginners.

You will need roller bottles, inhaler tubes, lip balm tubes, containers, and carrier oils so you can whip up some of these recipes when you need them.

The roller bottle opener tool in this kit is really helpful especially if you plan to reuse roller bottles.

You can purchase the bottle opener tool by itself for about $5 on Amazon.

You Need More Than One Diffuser

If you’re looking at this post you probably already have at least one diffuser.

When my first diffuser stopped working I told myself I would always have a backup diffuser.

I’ve had it happen and it was an expensive diffuser I got with a kit.

Grab that diffuser if you see it under $20 because it works great.

Top Essential Oil Uses Other Than In The Diffuser

I’ve written several posts about using essential oils other than in a diffuser.

The post that gets the most traffic right now is the one about how to make a fabric spray.

You can use any of your favorite oils in a spray bottle mixed with witch hazel and water.

There is nothing magic to it but it’s much better than using Lysol or Febreeze.

    Lots of good info and recipes in your post! I have been a fan of and using essential oils for awhile, need to get back into the habit of using them more often.

    You mention Lip Balm . It’s something I have never really used. My wife uses it like crazy and we have used it on our daughter. It seems like it’s something that some people come dependent on.

    Love this! My wife always uses them on her Diffuser Necklace

    1. Those diffuser necklaces look cool. Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are some great blends! I love the anti-anxiety blend for myself. Bergamot is one of our go-to oils for our morning routine.
