Essential Oil Blends to Use in a Diffuser

A few weeks ago, we talked about the best essential oil diffusers and some essential oils that you can use in them.  You can use single oils or a blend of oils, depending on what you are using the aromatherapy for.

If you're new to diffusing oils, you want to use a cold diffuser and not one that heats the oils like a tart burner.  Heating the oils can diminish some of its properties.

You may want to diffuse essential oils for the scent in the air, which works as an alternative to candles.  You can also use essential oils blends in your diffuser to relax, get energized, or improve concentration.  Here are over 25 essential oil blends to use in a diffuser at home.
