Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Energy Make Great Natural Pick-Me-Ups

By Andrea Butje, Owner/Instructor at Aromahead Institute

Does it surprise you to know that one of the first things I look forward to when I wake up is diffusing essential oils? Sound familiar?

I love the way they fill the house with beautiful scent. I also love the way they help my mind feel clear and focused, and my heart feel open. That’s just a great way to start the day!

Over the years, I have created a lot of essential oil diffuser blends for energy. Some have become favorites, and I make those blends ahead of time in bottles that I call “stock” bottles. That way, instead of having to reach for several different essential oils (sometimes my bottles migrate around my house as I use them for different purposes), I can just reach for my stock bottle. It lives right near my diffuser.

Here’s one of my favorite essential oil diffuser blends for energy in the morning, or anytime I need a boost.

You can make it right in a 5 ml stock bottle (which you can get at Aromatics International or any bottle supplier like SKS bottles). Just add:

  • 20 drops Rosemary essential oil (Rosmarinus officinalis)
  • 20 drops Grapefruit essential oil (Citrus paradisi)
  • 20 drops distilled Lime essential oil (Citrus aurantifolia)

Grapefruit and distilled Lime bring a bright, sparkling presence to this blend, and work as airborne antimicrobials. Rosemary is probably one of the most well-known essential oils for mental clarity and focus. It is very stimulating for the brain (and is also an airborne antimicrobial).

I even made a YouTube video of this blend, so you can see how it’s made and how to use it in a diffuser. In the video I use about 10 drops in a beautiful electric diffuser. The electric diffuser is made by one of my favorite companies—Puzhen. You can find it by clicking here.
