Black Spruce Diffuser Blends

Black Spruce Diffuser Blends

With so many emotional and physical benefits of course I love to add black spruce to my diffusers around the home.

It’s been a fabulous variation to the usual respiratory blends that I use.  Particularly, over the past month with the smoky air.  But, it’s also great to diffuse after a particularly smelly meal.  Or, when you discover uneaten food in school bags!  Or, with some baking soda in smelly sports shoes!

I love the spicy scent of black spruce essential oil.  It’s great to have spicy almost perfume-like notes of essential oils to add depth to your pure-fumes and personal care products.

When I first smelt black spruce it reminded me so much of my beloved douglas fir essential oil.  It’s that fresh earthy scent coming from the needles and branches.  Teleporting my imagination to a forest.  My happy place.  The scent immediately soothes and relaxes me.

I was completely drawn to using it in pure-fumes as a top note with a difference.

Grapefruit Rollerball Blends

I have an absolute love for Grapefruit essential oil at the moment.

My favourite way to use grapefruit essential oil is to drop 1 drop into a glass then top it with soda water.  We have a soda stream, as it’s more cost effective.  I find it incredibly refreshing.  It’s also a great way to detox our bodies, and a digestive tonic.  I find I always feel better whenever I drink it.

However, I also love it’s citrus scent as a top note in rollerball pure-fume blends, and it’s equally pleasant smelling diffused.

I have to admit when dōTERRA released the turmeric essential oil at the 2018 Global Convention I was super excited to start using it.  Primarily, for it’s internal benefits for anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic purposes.

It was another story when I got my first bottle, as I was slightly repulsed by the smell.  I am however pleased to say that it’s since grown on me.  Nowadays, I like the spicy base note depth it adds to blends. Continue reading Turmeric Rollerball Blends

Study Time Rollerball Blend

I actually love using dōTERRA’s proprietary blend called InTune.  It was created to support our bodies during times when we are required to be focused.  However, as it comes in a rollerball of pure essential oils, we found it just too strong for our kids, so we started to dilute the rollerball into other rollerballs bottles and added some lemon essential oil to tone it down to their preferred aroma.

This is our youngest daughter’s favourite blend to wear to school, and when sitting down in the evening to complete her allocated homework.
