Choosing diffuser blends by scent

Last Updated: 04/23/2024

Choose new diffuser blends based on the smells you love to have in your home 

Scent is one of the most personal experiences we have as humans, and each of our preferences are as unique as we are! Creating an atmosphere that reflects what you enjoy and what makes you feel at home in your home is one of the most important ways to allow a diffuser to bring wellness to your space. At Saje, we often suggest starting with what you already know you enjoy the smell of, and letting your senses guide the rest of your journey. 

Our top recommendations for diffuser blends you’ll want to try at home

One of the questions we are most frequently asked in our stores and online is about how to go about choosing a new diffuser blend. With more than 25 to choose from, we find that sometimes, going with the scents you know you love is the easiest way to find a new favorite!

Diffuser blends we love: bright, sunny citruses 

If you find yourself smiling at the thought of a juicy grapefruit for breakfast in the morning, or you enjoy the unmistakable sweet-citrus scent of a freshly squeezed lemon, you might choose diffuser blends known to be zippy, tart and fresh, just like a citrus fruit. 

Blends we love: 

Liquid Sunshine - a cheerful blend of grapefruit, bergamot and lime. This blend is fresh and uplifting, and perfect for providing a boost in the morning
