I have a diffuser in most of the rooms in my home, and I diffuse essential oils a few hours every day. I LOVE a fresh smelling home (it’s why I started diffusing) , and the therapeutic effects of the oils I diffuse are a plus!
Thankfully, we are a healthy family, so we rarely diffuse because of sickness. We do diffuse for relaxation, for a pleasant ambiance, for focus, for energizing our day, etc. Let’s look at the best diffuser essential oils.
I think everyone’s best diffuser essential oils will be different. Lets look at what makes an oil best to diffuse, so you can choose your own best oils for diffusing.
Best Essential Oils For Diffuser Blends
Most oils can be used for diffusing, either alone, or in combination with other oils. Some single oils might not smell great, but will help with a condition. so, rather than give up because you can’t stand the smell, mix it up with another oil.
For example, when I first smelled cedarwood oil, I thought I was going to throw up. But I struggle with insomnia, and really wanted to try it. So, I mixed it with lavender oil (I added 10 drops of lavender oil and 5 drops of cedarwood oil to a 10 ml roller bottle and filled to the top with FCO), and slowly, but surely, I have become accustomed to it. Do I love it? no, but I can use it without gagging.
Best Diffuser Essential Oils For Asthma
If you suffer with asthma, the best diffuser essential oils you should use are those that have decongestant and anti inflammatory properties, like peppermint, clove, lavender, and eucalyptus. You should also diffuse oils that help you relax, and relieve muscle contractions, like roman chamomile and bergamot oils.
Here’s one of y favorite asthma diffuser blends:
- 2 drops bergamot oil
- 3 drops peppermint oil
- 2 drops rosemary oil

Best Diffuser Essential Oils For Sleep
If you have trouble sleeping like I do, you’ll try anything just to get a good night sleep. Let me tell you, that I found some pretty powerful blends that I diffuse before bed and they’ve worked miracles for me. I have this diffuser on my nightstand, and my favorite blend to diffuse before bed is Serenity by doTERRA. Of course, I vary my blends, so I exchange the formula every few days. I sometimes use cedarwood and lavender, other times I use lavender, chamomile and wild orange. And other times I just use Balance.

Best Diffuser Essential Oils For Stress
We are all stressed, and one of the best ways I know to change the mood for the entire home, id to diffuse some relaxing oils. No need to yell, make a scene, or lose my mind. I turn my diffuser on with either a soothing blend (like lavender and geranium), or, a happy citrus blend(any combination of citrus works). Aromatherapy has been proven to improve health and mood. So, why not take advantage of aromatherapy for a better life?
