To quote the sublime words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, summer is a time to “live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air’s salubrity.” One of the most evocative ways that summer speaks to our spirit is through the iconic scents of the season: think robust, floral humidity; freshly cut grass and tomato plants; watermelon, citrus, and ripe peaches; and the unmistakable freshness of laundry dried on the line.
Designed to work in tandem with wide open windows and the wafting of warm breezes, here are some sweet essential oil diffuser blends to welcome even more of that wild and verdant energy of summer into your home:
