Happy Spring, babes!!! We have the most beautiful Spring weather over here and some much needed sunshine at the end of a very tough past few weeks.
We wanted to share some of our fave essential oil recipes for Spring, including a handful of my favorite diffuser blends, cleaning DIYs and some other tips & tricks for around the house!
ANTHRO SPRING | Diffuser Blends
There is nothing like all those gorgeous candles at Anthropologie! Now that we’ve switched to using essential oils + a diffuser to make our home smell absolutely dreamy, we’re always on the hunt for ways to replicate our favorite scents as diffuser blends. It’s not always straightforward, but our biggest tip is to look at the scent profile—usually listed on the packaging or in the description, if looking online—for inspiration & pick oils that match (or at least come super close). Then just have fun with it, babe!

DREAMY SLEEP | Cuddle Up
Let’s talk about one of my favorite things, sleep! I love sleep, and it is so crucial for our mental, emotional and physical health!
Our bodies need sleep to function physically, to make decisions, to handle all the day can throw at us! But when sleep is elusive, it can be frustrating
This probably seems like a no brainer, but diffuse your oils every night while you sleep! I love the Desert Mist or Aria diffuser because it’s lovely and for the intermittent setting.
Sleep oils (great in combo together!):
- From the Premium Starter kit – Lavender, Frankincense, Valor, Peace & Calming, Stress Away
- From the Welcome Home kit – Orange, Lavender, Valor, Frankincense
- Others – Cedarwood, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Vetiver
- Release – great for when worry is your companion
Grab your oils and apply them to the bottom of the big toe (the nerve endings that connect to the brain end here!)
- Pre-made rollers: Tranquil, Rutavala (contains Valerian for more oomph!), Peace & Calming.
- DIY: in a 10mL roller combine a total of 30 drops of any of the oils listed above. Roll onto feet, big toe, and on the chest and wrists before bed.

We have such fond memories of sheets hanging in the sun to dry on warm days when I was younger. They always had a distinct scent when they were brought in and put on our beds or hiding seek while they were still hanging. If you remember this scent, too, then you’ll definitely want to try this linen spray to bring back all those memories!
+ Sun-warmed Sheets Linen Spray
In a 4 oz glass spray bottle, add a squirt (about 1 teaspoon) of Witch Hazel, distilled water and oils. Give it a good shake and spray on linens.
Y’all. I was just talking with a friend and she was RAVING about a new skin regimen she was using as a reset after a stressful few weeks that left her with some hormonal breakouts all over.
