    Deep Earthy Grounded Diffuser Blends

    When it’s super cold outside, sometimes you just want a little comfort. Something earthy and cozy in your essential oil diffuser because hey, there’s a reason bears hibernate in caves, right?

    The best earthy essential oils are frankincense and patchouli, hands down. Add a few drops of either oil to your essential oil diffuser and you’ll instantly think of mossy forest floors and wet earth after the rain.

    Both patchouli and frankincense oils are considered base notes in perfume making. Base notes bring depth, harmony, linger the longest, and boost lighter top and middle note scents.

    If base note scents seem a bit much for you at first sniff, we enthusiastically encourage you to experience them in a diffuser blend harmonized with lighter top notes. Lemon, sweet orange and other citrus essential oils always work well with base notes.

    Spicy Warm & Cozy Diffuser Blends

    Most people hear “spicy” and think of heat from chili peppers. When it comes to essential oils spicy also refers to “warm” oils, so named for the warm or burning sensation they can have if applied directly to skin without diluting them.

    That being said, using “spicy” scents in diffuser blends create an atmosphere of warmth and familiarity. Especially if they’re herbs or spices closely associated with the holiday season.

    Cinnamon and peppermint are both spicy oils that have to be carefully diluted to be applied to skin. In your essential oil diffuser, they basically shout “holiday season” from the rooftop creating an inviting aroma that gives you the warm fuzzies.

    In perfumery, cinnamon is a middle note and peppermint is a top note. Both are very strong and stand out in diffuser blends, so it’s a good rule of thumb to use them sparingly to achieve harmony and balance.
