Nighttime Diffuse Blend

Favorite Nighttime Diffuser Blend

My favorite nighttime diffuser blend is Eucalyptus and Serenity. 

Eucalyptus because to be perfectly honest, I’m obsessed with the smell. 
The benefits are just a bonus! It helps with my allergies, relaxes me, and the scent I just find pleasant and soothing. 

Serenity because it smells like Heaven in a bottle! The hint of vanilla along with all the best relaxing oils. How can you go wrong?
