Essential Oil Diffuser Recipe for Celebrating, Giving Thanks and Expressing Gratitude

Giving ThanksHolidays including New Year's Eve, Thanksgiving, graduations, confirmations, baptisms, weddings, birthdays, the birth of a baby, moving into a new house and getting a promotion are examples of events that we may want to celebrate and express special gratitude through reflection, prayer or meditation. A few years ago, I created the following aromatherapy blend to diffuse during meditation before a landmark event in my daughter's life. Special events, however, aren't the only time that it can be appropriate and spiritually rewarding to utilize this blend while expressing gratitude and focusing upon our blessings.

Recipe to Express Thanks and Gratitude

Bergamot: A light, sweet, uplifting aroma that is typically loved by those of all ages. It makes for a beautiful primary oil in any blend intended for celebration or enhance joy.

Grapefruit: A beautifully uplifting aroma that is amongst my favorites.

Ylang Ylang: A beautiful, exotic floral essential oil. It can become quite overpowering, so use it sparingly. Ylang Ylang is what called to me for this celebratory blend, but jasmine would also be well suited.

Cypress: With its fresh, herbaceous, slightly woody aroma, Cypress is an energizing oil and is a great oil to use during times of change.

Frankincese: To celebrate my faith and gratitude, frankincense is my oil of choice for this particular blend. It's earthy and spicy base notes help to round out the aroma.

Ginger: Ginger is a spicy oil that is warming, heartlifting and helps to cut through the sweetness of the citrus and ylang ylang essential oils.


Combine all oils in a clean glass bottle and diffuse as you would other essential oil blends as you give thanks, pray or meditate.

Experiment with this blend or create your own celebration blend. There are certainly quite a few other oils that would be quite appropriate. What are some of your favorite oils and blends to to celebrate the triumphs in your life? I'd love to hear about your favorites.
