8 simple diffusing essential oil recipes you will love made for the beginner
Getting my Young Living Premium Starter Kit
The absolute first thing I did when I got my Young Living Premium Starter Kit was do a happy dance. Yep, right there in front of the kids, as the mail man was driving away. They had a great laugh. The very next thing was I unpacked my diffuser and oils in lighting fast speed. I was so excited I just couldn’t even stop long enough to even take in the kit. I was a woman on a mission, I had been spending the last week researching diffuser combinations and I couldn’t wait to try my first one. So I cracked open Purification and Lemon and went to work putting the recipe together with water and turned on the diffuser. About five minutes later I was unplugging the diffuser opening up windows and wondering what the crap did I just spend my money on. My eyes were watering and my nose was a faucet of nastiness. I grabbed up phone and texted my enroller asking, what am I doing wrong? This stuff is killing me! I couldn’t understand. I had followed that great recipe on pinterest, how could I fail?
What did I learn from my first diffusing? That I seriously needed a “Diffusing Essential Oils 101 for the busy mom” class. In this post I’m going to teach you what I learned.

One of the first things I Learned about Diffusing was to “take it easy.” Those great recipes you see online are wonderful, but if this is your first go or even your fifth, you have to take it easy. My first mistake was to underestimate these little bottles of oily goodness. It takes time to build up to many of those online diffuser combinations you see. My suggestion is take whatever recipe you see and divide it by half. If the recipe calls for 5 drops of Purification and 3 drops of Lemon. The first try of the recipe I would do 2 drops Purification and 1 drop Lemon.
Even after diffusing became old hat for me, when I try a new oil for the first time I always take it easy and 1/2 the recipe just to test our sensitivity to it.
So how did I save my first diffusing disaster? I poured my mix in a mason jar and added LOTS and LOTS of water. I tried the new watered down mix in my diffuser and guess what? It was still too strong, lol I know! I told you I had underestimated those little bottles. So I watered it down a third time, and that one was just right! So don’t be afraid of try and if you mess up use lots of water.
So below are some of my favorite starter diffuser recipes- they’ve been made for the newbie in mind. But feel free to dilute even more if they are still too strong. Remember we each react differently to oils so do what is best for you.
