Essential Oils To Diffuse To Calm Your Mind And Body

Posted on July 30, 2018

Ever find yourself with your mind racing, struggling to focus, or stuck in indecision? The struggle is real with this girl. I answer my husband at least once a week with "I can't make a decision right now" to the simplest of choices. What I love about essential oils is they help treat the whole person. When I'm using them to promote mental clarity, I'm also helping my body be healthy.

Stress and anxiety lead to a variety of health problems. When I go through a season of stress, I find myself likely to get colds, sleeplessness, heartburn, and I'm just not my best self. Can anyone relate?

So today I'm sharing the oils I use to help boost my mental clarity and get myself through stressful seasons.

Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot essential oil has a bright, citrusy, warm floral scent that can help reduce insomnia, relax, calm, refresh and uplift! Diffuse Bergamot in this relaxing blend to achieve a calm and relaxed mood.

Relaxing Blend

Equal Parts of:

  • Bergamot Essential Oil
  • Patchouli Essential Oil
  • Grapefruit Essential Oil

Can be diffused or diluted in carrier oil/lotion for skin application.

Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Lemon Eucalyptus not only calms nervousness but its sweet scent can deodorize your room in minutes. Diffuse to help support a healthy respiratory system, soothe stomach upsets and also repel insects.


Patchouli Essential Oil was specifically used to repel insects from precious cloths ages ago, but in the present day it works great at calming nervous tension and worry. For meditation purposes, this diffuser blend is extra easy to follow!

Meditation Diffuser Blend

  • 1 part Patchouli Essential Oil
  • 1 part Sweet Basil Essential Oil


This essential oil is great to use when relaxing before bedtime. It can help aid with better sleep! Spikenard also supports digestion and, just like the Lemon Eucalyptus, can deodorize as well! Try Spikenard with this blend. It works for an inhaler, aromatherapy jewelry or diffuser!

Peace and Calm Personal Inhaler / Diffuser Blend/ Aromatherapy Diffuser Jewelry

  • 1 drop Spikenard Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Cedarwood (Atlas) Essential Oil
  • 1 drop Sandalwood Essential Oil


The clean, crisp scent of eucalyptus can bring about a bundle of emotional and mental positive effects. It uplifts, refreshes and helps with mental focus. It also relieves oily skin and sore muscles.


When applied externally, lemongrass can have a warming effect on overused muscles and joints. Diffusing it, on the other hand, can bring out positive effects on your mental well being such as purifying the atmosphere in a room, providing an emotional calm, easing nerves, and providing mental clarity!

This calming diffuser blend makes use of two essential oils from this list and can help you achieve the calm, cool, and collected version of you that you are meant to be!

Calming Diffuser Blend


  • 3 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • 3 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil

In your diffuser, add 3 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil and 3 drops of Lemongrass Essential Oil. Let it diffuse for 30 minutes in the morning. You’ll feel extra calm and ready for anything.
