I’ve recently started a morning routine, sensing the need for some normalcy in my life now that I’m almost 40. (cough)
As part of that routine (while I’m waiting for my kettle to boil), I have started setting up our essential oil diffuser to run for most of the day. Depending on what my morning looks like, I’ll change the formula, but my house always smells delightful.
I usually make my own “recipes” and visitors to Chez Cupcake seem to enjoy the aroma, so I thought I would share some of my favorite blends with you.
(Need a diffuser of your own? Check out our Amazon store here, with a few of our favorites!)
