The best essential oils for spring

Spring represents a season of renewal, growth, and positivity. With the rising temperatures, nature awakens after a long winter’s sleep, plants are blooming, and wildlife is buzzing.

Springtime is filled with beautiful aromas. For the warmer months, I like to transition from the cozy winter and fall scents to bright and fresh fragrances.

And if you’re asking yourself the question “what are the best essential oils for spring?” – you’ve come to the right place! I’ve put together a list of essential oils perfect for spring diffuser blends.

Florals

I’m convinced that every list of spring essential oils must start with floral oils. As a reader of this site, you may already know our deep love for flowers in all forms, and flower essential oils are no exception.

With floral scents, you have plenty of options to choose from. We have classic oils, such as lavender and rose, and fragrant absolutes, like jasmine and ylang ylang. And let’s not forget about those elusive and rarely mentioned oils like rhododendron and magnolia.

  • lavender essential oil
  • rose essential oil or absolute
  • ylang ylang essential oil or absolute
  • jasmine absolute
  • palmarosa essential oil
  • geranium essential oil
  • neroli essential oil
  • magnolia flower essential oil
  • rhododendron
  • cassie absolute
  • champaca C02 extract
  • tuberose absolute

Some of these oils are a little harder to track down and occasionally sell out. If you have the chance to buy them, be sure to stock up!

How to set up a spring diffuser

If you feel unsure about using your diffuser, my quick guide will walk you through the process. It’s really easy!

  1. Set it up. Position your diffuser near a wall 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.
  2. Fill the water tank. Fill the reservoir with room temperature or lukewarm water to the fill line. Filtered water or distilled water is best. If running your diffuser often, be sure to routinely add more water.
  3. Add oils. Now, this is the best part! Drop your spring diffuser blends of choice into the water tank. The quantities are enough for 100 to 200 ml diffusers.
  4. Adjust the settings. Switch the diffuser on and adjust the settings to your liking. Some aromatherapy diffusers have different spray settings and LED lighting to create gentle illumination.

Tips & FAQs

Are these spring diffuser blends aromatherapeutic?

Yes, these spring diffuser blends provide aromatherapeutic benefits. Diffusing essential oils can support your wellness goals and elevate your mood.

Citrus essential oils are lauded in aromatherapy for their refreshing and stimulating properties. Floral oils are said to have uplifting and relaxing qualities, and herbal essential oils feel grounding and refresh your mind.

For the best effect, choose a springtime blend that compliments your mood and elicits the feeling you desire. For example, use Citrus Boost in the morning to start the day on a positive note. Or diffuse Magnolia Tree to mellow out at the end of the day.

How can I make the spring diffuser recipes smell stronger?

As mentioned before, these spring essential oil recipes are designed for 100 to 200 ml diffusers and should be sufficient to fragrance a medium-sized room.

In case you prefer a stronger scent or plan to scent a larger space, feel free to increase the essential oils by doubling the drop count.

I find that every blend behaves slightly differently. Some scents are more dominant than others or evaporate faster. Delicate floral aromas are not as long-lasting as some of the citrus oils.

Therefore, I recommend starting out with the suggested usage rates and letting the diffuser run for 1 hour. After an hour, the room should be filled with scent, allowing you to determine if you want the smell to be stronger.

Can I use these blends to scent bath and body products?

Yes, these spring blends are lovely to fragrance spring-themed skincare products. To ensure the blend 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.

Can I use these blends to make spring candles?

Of course! What could be more perfect for this season than a spring-scented candle? Aside from diffusing, I LOVE homemade candles and take any opportunity to pour essential oil candles.

For a strong scent throw, you’ll want to increase the quantities. Approximately 140 to 240 drops / 7 to 12 g / 0.24 – 0.42 oz are needed to scent one 8-oz soy candle.

In case of the more expensive oils, I suggest making only a small 3 oz to 4 oz votive candle. You also need to be diligent that the wax isn’t too hot when you add the fragrance. Otherwise, the volatile scent will just diminish.

Tips for mixing a larger batch

As you try my spring diffuser blends, you may find one or two combinations that you really love and want to diffuse on repeat. Currently, I can’t get enough of Fragrant Meadow and Spring Clean.

If that rings true for you, whip up a larger batch, so 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.

How to store spring essential oils

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 spring essential oils in a dark, cool place that isn’t exposed to sunlight (e.g., a cupboard or drawer.)
