The best Easter essential oils
What are the smells of Easter?
Each season comes with its own set of smells, and I love recreating these scents with essential oils. But have you ever wondered what essential oils smell like Easter?
The holiday has many aromatic smells that evoke spring euphoria, celebrations, and family moments. Of course, Easter isn’t related to a single smell but a multitude of scents.
I believe that Easter scents can be divided into 3 scent families: florals, gourmet aromas, and spiritual notes that remind us why we’re celebrating Easter. Let’s find out more!
After a cold winter, Easter is a time for renewal and to connect with the outdoors and nature. The season brings new smells and sights, and flowers are among the first heralds of springs.
Some of the most popular spring blooms, such as daffodils, tulips, crocus, bluebells, and lilies, aren’t available in essential oil form. Their aromatics are too delicate to be distilled.
Lucky, we have plenty of other floral oils to choose from. The luminous smells of rose, lavender, geranium, ylang ylang, and jasmine certainly lace your home in spring notes.
Today, many associate Easter with sweets and treats. Baskets stuffed with chocolate eggs, jelly beans, little peeps, mini eggs, marshmallows… the list of scrumptious Easter treats goes on and on.
I love gourmand scents and had so much fun modeling Easter diffuser blends after spring candies. You’ll need sweet-smelling oils like tonka bean, cocoa absolute, and Peru balsam to captivate these candy essential oil blends.
Lime, grapefruit, sweet orange, and other citrus oils add a bit of tang and infuse the blends with a bright note that is simply perfect for this sunny time of year.
If you’re religious, Easter is also a season of hope and spirituality. It’s a time to strengthen your faith and reflect on the resurrection of Christ.
With this in mind, I created 3 blends that connect with the spiritual aspects of the holiday. The blends use aromatic botanicals of biblical days, such as cedarwood, frankincense, and juniper.
Some recipes include palo santo, laurel, and blue tansy, which I find have spiritual qualities that I find like to diffuse during prayer and devotional practice.
And even if you don’t consider yourself religious, I hope you’ll enjoy the relaxing and grounding properties of these blends. They’d be perfect for mediation and provide calm in moments of unrest and stress.

Setting up an Easter diffuser
Enjoying your Easter diffuser blends is truly so easy. Here’s a quick step-by-step guide on using your diffuser and making the most of your essential oil mixes.
- Set it up. Position your diffuser near an outlet. Ideally, the diffuser should be 2 to 3 feet above the floor, for example, on a table or nightstand, so the scent can be properly distributed into the air.
- Fill tank. Fill the water tank with room temperature or lukewarm water to the fill line. Filtered water or distilled water is best. If running your diffuser often, top-up once the water runs low.
- Add oils. Drop your Easter diffuser blends of choice into the water tank. The quantities are enough for 100 to 200 ml diffusers.
- Specify settings. Switch the diffuser on and adjust the settings to your liking. Some aromatherapy diffusers have different spray settings and LED lighting to cast a lovely illumination.
Tip: Diffusing with flowers
For the ultimate Easter experience, put your diffuser next to a bouquet of fragrant spring flowers. As the essential oils diffuse, they mix and mingle with the flower fragrances, creating truly unique and complex smells.
I like to place my diffuser next to a hyacinth arrangement. Not only look fresh spring flowers absolutely stunning, but their rich scent also compliments my Easter scents so well and creates such a lovely ambiance.
Are Easter diffuser blends aromatherapeutic?
Yes, these Easter diffuser blends provide aromatherapeutic benefits. Diffusing essential oils is a wonderful wellness application and can enhance and improve your mood and wellbeing.
Can I use these Easter scents for soapmaking and skincare?
Yes, these spring blends are lovely to fragrance homemade soap and skincare products. To ensure the mixture remains within safe levels, use the oils at a 2% to 3% concentration.
Cold-pressed citrus essential oils (such as lemon, lime, grapefruit, and bergamot) are phototoxic. They can cause a reaction if applied to the skin and exposed to the sun. Instead, reach for steam-distilled versions of these oils, which are considered non-phototoxic.
You also want to skip the Sunday Brunch and Hot Cross Bun blends. These recipes contain cinnamon and cassia. Their irritancy renders these oils unsafe for skin care.
Can I use the blends for candles and home fragrance?
Of course! The blends are great for various home fragrance and air freshener ideas like candles, room sprays, and wax melts. For more details, browse through our collection of homemade essential oil candles.
How to store Easter essential oil blends
If you find a blend that you really love and want to diffuse on repeat, whip up a larger batch. That way, you have your favorite spring blend handy whenever you want to diffuse it.
Simply get one of these 0.17-oz / 5 ml amber glass bottles. Using a mini funnel, fill it with your spring essential oil blend. A bottle of this size can hold approximately 200 drops of oil. As you multiply the drop count, be sure to keep it below 200 drops.
Essential oils react sensitively to heat and sunlight. UV rays disrupt the volatile scent molecules and lessen the quality of your oils.
To protect your spring essential oil recipes best from these influences, store your Easter essential oils in a dark, cool place that isn’t exposed to sunlight (e.g., a cupboard, lidded box, or drawer).
