TIP-TOP Ten Favorite SPRING Diffuser Blends

Spring Diffuser Blends

There are so many things that I love about spring – the colorful spring bulbs, the temperate days, the fresh smells, the new green grass, the preparation of gardens and the rosy toddler cheeks from playing long and hard outside.

In my quest to celebrate the ordinary and the extra-ordinary days of the year, I am creating my bucket list for enjoying SPRING with my people. This list includes:

  • Attend tulip days at our botanical gardens
  • Plant my vegetable garden and help Little Oilist plant hers
  • Greet our new neighbors with a pot of flowers
  • Plant a new fruit tree and some blueberry bushes
  • Go for lots of spring walks
  • Do a deep spring-cleaning
  • Do some spring crafts with the girls
  • Slow down to enjoy the sights and sounds of spring
  • Experiment and create spring diffuser recipes

Spring diffuser recipes? Yes, I have already worked on that last bucket list item. I have so loved experimenting with some wonderful diffuser blends that not only remind me of spring, but have supporting properties for the sneezing and wheezing that can spring bring.

Celebrate these wonderful days of spring in any way you can with your family – the new sights, the sounds and the freshness. This is a wonderful time of year to create and enjoy everything new and fresh from your gardens to your essential oils. I hope these blends will refresh and support you and maybe even inspire you in creating your own, one-of-a-kind SPRING essential oil blend.

Happy Spring!

Favorite Infant Immune Supporting Blend

Baby Oils

My Baby Oilist has her mouth on everything. She tastes toys, books, and alas, crumbs almost every day, and not to mention her own little digits that touch everything.

Good habits of cleaning and hygiene are the most important factors in keeping your babies and homes well.

But when my baby’s immune system need support, I turn to my trusty and favorite Baby Immune Supporting Essential Oil Blend.

I combined some of my favorite essential oils that are gentle, yet are still super powerful and effective. Balsam Fir, Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Orange work together to support excellent immune function.

Baby Oils

As with all things you apply or give to your children, do your research and use your best judgment on what your child needs.

Here is the exact recipe that I use for my littlest Oilists – from babyhood to two years old. I use equal parts of this essential oil blend and a carrier oil on my one-year-old. I would dilute this more for a younger baby or less for an older toddler. Feel free to dilute this recipe more or less depending on the age of your child and your needs.

Favorite Infant Immune-Supporting Blend

25 drops Balsam Fir Essential Oil

15 drops Orange Essential Oil*

20 drops Lavender Essential Oil

10 drops Roman Chamomile Essential Oil

70 drops V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex

I combine all these drops in an empty Lavender essential oil bottle with a roller ball top. This makes it easy and tidy to apply.

Baby Oils

I roll this recipe on the feet, the chest and back several times a day when my Baby Oilist needs it.

I hope this blend blesses your babies as much as it has mine!

*With a supported, healthy immune system, Baby Oilist enjoyed some sunshine during this photo shoot. Be aware though that Orange essential oil, like all citrus oils, can cause photosensitivity, so avoid applying it to exposed skin before spending time out in the sun.
