Whether traveling just isn’t in the cards for you this summer or you’ve already taken your summer vacation and are feeling the after-beach blues, we have just what you need to stay on island time all season long!  Staying home doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the tropical vibes the beach offers. Grab your diffuser, a handful of oils, your favorite glass, and learn how to bring the island oasis straight to your home!  Today we are going to talk about what Essential Oils to use that give off Vacation vibes! 

Let’s start with some of our favorite summer diffuser blends, shall we?
