It's time for SPRING FEVER!

by Penny Keay

Don’t know about you but it has been a very long but mild winter for most of us. And now I’m ready to get on with Spring!

The weather just doesn’t seem to want to cooperate. Wintery blasts of snow, rain and what ever else Mother Nature can throw at us seems to be happening.

The daylight hours are getting longer which certainly helps. Soon we will be able to get out in to the yard and begin spring clean up.

What to do in the mean time? Well, diffusing a spring time scent might help brighten things up.

Remember any floral scent with a little citrus scent added to it usually will unlock the spring and summer memories– (the lock and key system that is spoken of in aromatherapy) and in so doing will make these last few days of winter more enjoyable. Especially as we dream of spring and summer.

So here are a few recipes to try. You can experiment a little too.

Spring Fever Blend #1

Grapefruit– 5 drops
Melissa – 5 drops
Geranium – 1 drop

Spring Fever Blend# 2

Ginger – 3 drops
Mandarin – 3 drops
Orange – 2 drops

Spring Fever Blend#3

Ylang-Ylang – 3 drops
Black Pepper– 3 drops
Mandarin – 3 drops

Choose one of the above blends. Blend these in a small bottle or just put the drops in the recipe directly on your diffuser such as a Terra Cotta Disc or onto a cotton pad of a Scentball or fan diffuser.

Add more as necessary. Close your eyes for a moment and think of spring! It has to be here soon!

Try just diffusing single notes – especially Neroli, Jasmine, Vanilla Ylang-Ylang, Lavender or any other of the florals. Sweet smelling essential oils like Mandarin, Tangerine and other citrus oils are refreshing and may brighten your smile and your step!

Here is a nice Bath Blend too for a nice spring evening.

Clary Sage - 4 drops
Ylang-Ylang - 4 drops
Geranium - 3 drops
Basil - 2 drops
Sandalwood- 1 drop

Mix all oils together in an amber bottle. This blend can be used in any Diffuser or put 5 drops in your bath water.


Ylang-Ylang – 20 drops
Bergamot – 20 drops
Lavender– 20 drops
Roman Chamomile – 10 drops
Grapefruit– 5 drops

Blend all in a glass bottle. Then Mix several drops with an Emulsifier then add to the Room spray . (Follow Room spray label instructions for amount to add to the size spray bottle you are making)
