Summer Solstice Scent Blend

We are eleven days away from the Summer Solstice (otherwise known as Litha).  Anyone else excited yet?  To get everyone in the proper mood, here is a scent blend that’ll help you tap into the high energy part of the year.  There are so many different things you could do with this formula.  If your tradition or practice uses anointing oil, add the essential oils to a clean dropper bottle, fill it with jojoba or sweet almond oil, and cap it.  If you like to diffuse oils in your home, this blend is good for living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms.  This blend would also be good for kids as a “monster away spray” when combined in an atomizer with filtered water, a few amethyst chips, a teaspoon of silver glitter, and the blessings of the fae.  Use your creativity and imagination to bring the solar, Solstice energy into your life.


  • 1 part sweet orange essential oil
  • 1 part ylang ylang essential oil
  • 1 part sandalwood essential oil
  • 1 part lemon balm essential oil
  • 1-2 drops of tangerine essential oil

Combine and use in whatever manner you see fit.

Orange and tangerine oils connect to prosperity, happiness, and solar energy. Ylang ylang brings in a little sultriness of the summer.  Sandalwood connects to spirituality and keeps the user grounded.  Lemon balm, magically linked to happiness, creates a sense of calm and well-being.
