Want your home to smell like a spa? Here are 8 essential oil blends you can try at home to create different therapeutic scents that soothe your senses!
If you’re just now getting into essential oils, you might not be too confident in blending them to create unique scents just yet. After all, it can be quite confusing. How are you supposed to know what goes well with the scent of ylang ylang or bergamot if you’re new to the game? After all, ylang ylang sounds more like a made up word than the name of a flower.
That’s why I’m going to reveal some of my personal favourite essential oil blends to turn your home smelling like a bougie spa. Or if you’re crazy about spiced pumpkin latte, you can turn your room into a Starbucks too.

Pro tip: These blend ratios are based on 300ml aroma diffusers, so feel free to adjust the ratios yourself if have a bigger diffuser!
