There’s no doubt about it: spring is definitely in the air! A mix of scents from early blooms, freshly cut grass and tilled earth, rain, first-of-the-year bonfires. And let us not forget the unescapable pollen everywhere. Yes, it sure smells like spring out there.
I love throwing open the windows and letting all of this breeze through our home. It is definitely one of my favorite things about spring.
This is also my favorite season for getting creative with the lovely, purifying scents in our essential oil diffuser, too. While the fresh air breezing through open windows is great for the senses, I think an added bit of cleansing and fragrance makes it even better.
Here are some of my favorite essential oil blends for these warmer days.
