DIY Spring Oil Diffuser Blend

This natural oil diffuser blend is a lovely fresh scent that will bring spring indoors. The last time I shared an oil diffuser blend was for winter; the carrier oil was sweet almond which works quite well but isn’t very long lasting.

I don’t usually suggest a synthetic option, however, you may prefer to use a low ratio dipropylene glycol water carrier that lasts longer and travels up the reeds more efficiently.

Although it’s not natural like sweet almond or jojoba oil, dipropylene glycol lasts longer; this colourless liquid has no scent and is low in toxicity. The recipe has both options so it’s up to you which you choose.

Also, keep in mind that a pure essential oil blend will not be as strong as the overpowering scent of a commercial reed diffuser that uses synthetically made fragrances. With this natural blend, you’ll need to flip the reeds every so often to refresh the scent, especially when using a carrier oil instead of dipropylene glycol.

DIY Spring Oil Diffuser Blend

¼ Cup Sweet Almond Oil or 1/4 Cup Dipropylene Glycol (avail from Lotus Oils)

3 ml Rosemary Essential Oil

3 ml Lemon Essential Oil

3 ml Lavender Essential Oil

Pour the rosemary, lemon and lavender oils into your diffuser and swirl really well to combine, add the reeds and let them soak for a couple of hours, then flip them over to promote the scent travelling along the channels.

A natural oil diffuser works best in a smaller room like a bathroom or office, if using in a larger room you will need a couple of diffusers to appreciate the scent.

      We supply carrier oil such as Almond or Jojoba but not the dipropyline glycol, however we could get some in with our next order if you’d like some. 100g is around $6.00.
