Savoring Summertime Scents Diffusing Guide


Summer is slowly slinking away with earlier sunsets and clouds that tease of fall. On these golden nights, it is so nice to come home, pour a cup of tea, and get the diffuser going to refresh your space and spirit. We’ve picked out a few of our favorite scents for the last days of summer. Diffusing pure essential oils into the air allows you to enjoy the many benefits of herbal aromatherapy. Using just 5 drops of essential oil at the office, as guests arrive for a party, during a candlelit bath, or before bed, is a wonderful way to infuse the therapeutic goodness of herbs into your every day. We hope you enjoy this guide!



Clary Sage Salvia sclarea: relaxing and uplifting. Aroma: dry, bittersweet floral

Geranium Pelargonium graveolens: balancing. Aroma: strong, sweet, rose-like floral

Lavender Lavandula angustifolia: healing and calming. Aroma: sweet herbaceous floral

Ylang Ylang Cananga odorata: sedative and mood-elevating. Aroma: intense, cloyingly sweet and floral



Peppermint Mentha piperita: cooling and stimulating. Aroma: fresh, hot minty

Rosemary Rosmarinus officinalis: awakening. Aroma: green, woody, camphorish

Lemon Balm Melissa officinalis: calming and relaxing. Aroma: fresh, herbal, citrus


 Looking for a diffuser? 



There are several wonderful options to choose from depending on your needs. The tea light diffusers offer a warm candle glow that make them perfect for a relaxing bath or for scenting a smaller room. The electronic diffusers provide a more powerful dispersal of aromatic particles into the air, making them an ideal choice for larger rooms and therapeutic applications. The little terra cotta pendants can be hung on your rearview mirror or in a closet to help reduce odor. If you are interested in learning more about our new Ultrasonic Diffuser (middle), please give our customer service folks a call at (800) 879-3337.

Happy Diffusing!
