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, but 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!

Tabitha, I literally can’t wait to try out the winter and Christmas diffuser blends! Do you have any favorite spring diffuser blends? I love diffusing bergamot and the invigorating blend for a fresh, citrus blend! I have read mixed information regarding how often a diffuser should be cleaned with vinegar? What is your cleaning regime for your diffusers? I am so glad I found your essential oil blog and I can’t wait to read more of your blog posts!
