Next to Lavender, the citrus oils might be the easiest and most forgiving to blend with. On their own, they sometimes do not have enough odor strength to really create a strong smell from a diffuser. Mixed with other oils, they bring a cheery, uplifting note to the blend.

Citrus oils and spice oils go very nicely together, creating a warming, uplifting, and comforting blend. To come up with your own combinations, remember that the spice oil will usually be the more powerful oil so you will want to have it be in a lower proportion to the citrus.
