Just because fall is here and winter is coming, doesn’t mean that I don’t want to go to the beach. I love the sound of the waves crashing and I love that fresh salty breeze from the ocean. Heck, I can go to the beach no matter what time of year it is. When I lived in Los Angeles, CA, I would go to the beach 2 to 3 times a week even in winter. It didn’t matter if it was chilly, I still loved the atmosphere. Of course, summertime at the beach is the best. You get the warm sun and the cool water from the ocean. What a great combination. Well, now you can bring that feel inside your home with these 10 beach inspired essential oil diffuser recipes.

For babies, dilute at 0.5% or even 0.25% (half of the 0.5% amount. So, use 3 drops of your essential oil and dilute it in 4 teaspoons of carrier oil for 0.5% or 8 teaspoons of carrier oil for 0.25%.
Use the 1% dilution ratio for daily use. Mix 3 essential oil drops for every 2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
If you need a stronger dose for a short period of time, use the 5% dilution ratio by adding 15 essential oil drops for every 2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
For really, really severe situations, you can up it to 10 percent dilution ratio for small acute areas of concern. For this, you would mix 15 essential oil drops for every teaspoon of carrier oil.
