My Top 8 Favorite Summer Diffuser Blends

I love to diffuse essential oils all year long. Today I’m sharing my favorite summer diffuser blends. When I think of summer smells, I think of citrus, fresh, and the outdoors.

Starting my diffuser in the morning is part of my morning routine. When I get home from the gym, I grab my cup of coffee and start the diffuser.

In this post, I’m sharing 8 of my favorite summer essential oil blends for your diffuser, where I buy my essential oils, a coupon code, and diffuser suggestions. Enjoy!

It seems like every store these days carries essential oils, but they’re not all the same. Many of the oils you’ll find at Target or Walmart are only a small portion actual oil and the rest of the bottle is just filler. Definitely look at the ingredients before buying.

We’ve been using essential oils in our house for almost 20 years! I started using them when my oldest was a baby and had a stuffy nose. There wasn’t much I could do for him but to run a humidifier in his room. I really wanted to use some Watkins menthol rub on him–it works so well for stuffy noses!–but I didn’t want him to rub it into his eyes. 🙁

So my first experience with essential oils was running to the health food store and grabbing a bottle of eucalyptus oil. Those were the days when there weren’t a ton of options–just lemon, peppermint, and eucalyptus! I brought home the bottle and sprinkled a few drops on some tissues and threw them in the corners of his crib. It was like a mini diffuser.

And it worked like a charm!

After that I was sold! There weren’t a lot of options, but I used them on everything I could think of from then on.

Today, I have two favorite places to get essential oils: DoTerra and Sixth Scents Oils.

DoTerra is great and I love their blends! But you do need to become a member to purchase and all that stuff.

Sixth Scents Oils are purchased either by subscription–you can get a curated monthly box of oils (love that!) OR just order individual oils.

Either choices are great! (I do have a coupon code for Sixth Scents Oils–keep reading!)


Here are my favorite summer essential oil blends–I typed a (*) beside any DoTerra blends. I also typed the number of drops beside the oil. I usually double the recipe because my diffuser is pretty big.

I have been getting Sixth Scents Oils for ages now and they are SO good! You can either subscribe to get the monthly oil box, which includes six oils, a pretty pine box, and a card with uses for the oils and diffuser blend ideas. I absolutely love getting these boxes.

If you don’t want to do the boxes, you can order individual oils as needed.

I’ve gone through many diffusers over the years–some are good, some not so good. My favorites are the ones that have a larger water well because they seem to kick out much more steam.

Here are a few of my favorites:

I have had this one forever–at least two years. I actually have two of them and I use them in larger rooms like my kitchen and living room. This one really kicks out a lot of steam, which I love.

The following two are great for smaller rooms like the bathroom or bedroom. They’re also really pretty, which is also important!
