Lots of industrial products are available in our market in the form of essential oils, but some of them have toxic contents that makes the air in our room toxic.

Thus it is better to make one for ourselves to use in aromatherapy diffuser as these are very cheap and easy to make.

Making the aroma diffuser oil is very simple and overwhelming because, once you learn how to make diffuser oil, you will realize that it is so simple.

This can actually be made by using different ingredients and also by different methods.

Ingredients Required

Basic ingredients needed to prepare essential oil for your diffuser are:

Base oil: Base oil or carrier oil is the main ingredient or backbone of making diffuser oil. This oil will help to temper the effectiveness of essential oil that you choose to use in our diffuser mixture.

The base oil will also carry essential oil to top of the mixture so that they can diffuse into the surrounding air. There are a lot of options for the base oil and some of them are:

  • Almond oil
  • Safflower oil
  • Fractionated coconut oil
  • Grapeseed oil

I personally prefer to use Almond oil for the carrier oil, as its great for health of my family.

Essential oil: Next thing is choosing the pure essential oil because that is what is going to be wafting around your house.

So it is better to pick an essential oil to our liking. Many other essential oils are also available in the market and some of them are:

  • Spearmint
  • Pine
  • Peppermint
  • Rose
  • Lavender

The best thing to start with is peppermint essential oil. And then you can try more afterwards as per your need.

Alcohol: Alcohol is not a necessary ingredient, it helps the oil to thin and also make diffuser oil to be drawn to top of the lid.

Some people will get better result without using alcohol. Alcohol evaporates faster than water and makes it a better option for drawing diffuser to the reeds and also won’t make a greasy mixture out the substance.

Once you make this and pour it into the reed diffuser of your choice, you can use it for months enjoying lovely fragrance throughout your home.

Steps for Making

Add 30-50 drops of essential oil to the mixture to get the desired aroma for the oil. Stir the mixture well and use more drops of alcohol if the mixture is thick.

Well, now when you know about the steps to prepare aromatherapy diffuser oil from pure essential, why not prepare them at your home in a DIY way.
