Diffuser Blends on a Budget

We know essential oils are often expensive, and diffusing them may use up more oil than you would like. So we have come up with a list of diffuser blends using 5 of the least expensive essential oils, as well as 4 of the most common essential oils that most people have on hand and that are still fairly inexpensive.

These oils include the following (from lowest to highest in price):

  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Lime
  • Eucalyptus
  • Rosemary
  • Grapefruit
  • Melaleuca
  • Peppermint
  • Lavender

    • Use the amount of water your diffuser calls for. If you find that the oils diffused aren’t strong enough (or are too strong) for your preference you can increase the recipe and/or create a diffuser blend in a sample bottle, then add the number of drops you find work for you and your diffuser.

  1. Love these blends. Actually, I’m abput to try one right now. I’m going to do the Lavender and Lemon, since I just got home from a trying day at work. Love your blog!

  2. Is there any way to print this information. I am keeping a scrap book for my information, but I don’t know how to print the above information so I can access it easily. Thank you for your help.

      • can I use fragrant oils or essential oils for these recipes? fragrant oils are so much cheaper!

        • You could use fragrant oils if they aren’t going to be touching your skin. However, we highly recommend using high quality oils, so you can get the therapeutic benefits from the oil’s aromas and don’t have to worry about the oil touching your skin.
