Summer Diffuser Blends You Should Definitely Try

Summer is here with all of its sights, sounds, and scents! Today, I’m sharing some of the best Summer diffuser blends from Young Living essential oils!

First, before I get into the recipes, I wanted to start off with some important safety tips for using essential oils in the sun just in case you plan on using any topically.

Did you know that several essential oils are considered “phototoxic”? Basically, that means that they react with UV rays from sunlight or artificial light and can cause adverse reactions with our skin.

These reactions could be a rash, blisters, or even permanent darkening wherever the oil was applied and exposed. Sometimes these effects can last for months. Yikes! No thanks.

Most of the oils on this list are in the citrus family, but there are a few others and several blends that need to be avoided as well. Young Living has labeled all of these oils very clearly, so please always check before applying to you or a loved one!

However, that doesn’t mean you have to put your beloved grapefruit and bergamot away for the summer! Just apply to areas that won’t be exposed to the sun for at least 24 hours (under your clothes) and of course, they are always safe to diffuse!
