St. Patrick’s Day Diffuser Recipes

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon so I wanted to share my favorite diffuser blends. Growing up St. Patrick’s Day to me was all about making sure I was wearing green and pinching everyone who wasn’t. Once I got to college, St. Patrick’s Day was all about drinking, having a blast with my friends and of course wearing green.  As I have got a bit older I wanted to know what St. Patrick’s Day was really about so I did some research. St. Patrick’s Day first started in the 17th Century as a religious celebration to commemorate the life of Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. The 17th of March is believed to be the anniversary of Saint Patrick’s death. In the 18th century, Irish immigrants brought the tradition to American and then Saint Patrick became a symbol of Irish heritage and culture.

Why is the color green symbolic? At first the color associated with St. Patrick’s Day was blue but after the Irish Rebellion it was changed to green. The Irish soldiers wore green while fighting the British (in their trademark red) and during the war the Irish sang called the “The Wearing of the Green”.

Below are my favorite diffuser recipes that help me get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. Let me know in the comments below what you think.

Winter Diffuser Recipes

I don’t know about you but this winter we are having here in Michigan has been brutal and it’s only January. It has been snowing like crazy and has been super cold (some mornings as low as -12). Because of this crazy winter I wanted to find/create some delightful winter diffuser recipes to bring me out of the winter blues and remind me how beautiful the weather really is.

All three of these diffuser recipes include some of my favorite essential oils and these blends are so comforting. I hope you can find at least one of these blends that help you remember why winter is so beautiful.

I love diffusing these recipes both while I am at home on a cold, snowy winter morning sipping my coffee or while spending my day at work watching the snow fall from my office.

I do want to let you know that all three of these blends utilize peppermint essential oil and from my research peppermint essential oil is not considered safe to be used around kids.

Winter Diffuser Recipe 01: Winter Blues Buster

2 Drops Bergamot Essential Oil

2 Drops Sweet Orange Essential Oil

2 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Winter Diffuser Blend 02: Baby It’s Cold Outside:

2 Drops Lavender Essential Oil

2 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil

2 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil

3 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Winter Diffuser Recipe 03: Winter Wonderland:

2 Drops Bergamot Essential Oil

2 Drops Cypress Essential Oil

 

Diffusing Tips:

When diffusing essential oils be sure to follow some important guidelines:

  • Be sure to follow the diffuser recommendations on the bottle of essential oil as some oils should only be diffused for 20-30 minutes at a time. Essential oils are extremely concentrated and you don’t want to overdo it.
  • Use only high-quality essential oils. My favorite brand is Plant Therapy but there a lots of quality brands on the market.
  • Follow the cleaning instructions of your ultrasonic diffuser. Keeping your diffuser clean will result in more effective diffusion of oils into the air and keeps your device working in tip top shape.

Let me know in the comments below what you think about the blends and what your favorite winter diffuser recipes are.
