One of our most popular posts ever here on Fresh Mommy Blog is our 15 Must Try Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes. It’s also been our most pinned post, and I can see why! Besides making a home smell amazing, there are so many therapeutic benefits to running a diffuser filled with a favorite mixture of essential oils in your space.

On my quest to use scented candles less, a diffuser not only helps me in this effort, I can also choose oils based on my ever-changing mood or the always adjusting needs of my family (i.e. sleepy kids, high stress situations, colds, etc).

So today I’m sharing my 15 Most Effective Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes for a healthy winter season!
