How to Use These Blends


Add the blend to an essential oil diffuser to disperse the oils into the air. This method is perfect for energizing your space and creating a refreshing atmosphere. Our Boho Mist and Opal Bliss Diffusers are summer favorites.

Topical Application

Dilute the essential oils in a carrier oil (such as coconut, jojoba, or sweet almond oil) before applying to the skin. Typically, a 2-3% dilution is safe for adults (about 12-18 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil). Apply to pulse points like the wrists, neck, and temples for a quick energy boost.
