I just wanted my house to smell like Anthropologie.
If you want your house to smell like Anthropologie (who doesn’t love that Volcano candle?), too, read on!
As you probably know, I’ve always been so in love with the scent of the Anthropologie stores. For years I’d walk into the store and take a deep breath. Ahhh, it was like heaven to me! It smelled exactly like I wanted my home to smell, so quite a few years back I started buying the candles and lit them almost every day. It was pure bliss.
A couple of years ago I decided to stop burning scented candles in my home (and stopped buying scented products as well) because of the correlation between toxins and various health issues. I just didn’t want to take that risk any more. Womp, womp, womp.
Even though I was so glad I made that change (ridding my home of synthetic and scented products has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my health) I’ll admit I missed having such a divine smelling house.
I started experimenting with using essential oils to recreate the scents I used to love so much. My first attempts at the Anthro-inspired scents were good, but not close enough!
Finally my girls and I came up with a couple of essential oils diffuser recipes that we tested right next to our old Anthro Volcano candle and a Sweet Vanilla Cinnamon candle, two of our very favorites! Our oil recipes are sooo close to the real deal! Woot!
My senses have been very happy ever ‘scents’. :). I actually don’t miss the scent of candles at all. In fact, now I PREFER natural plant-based scents! And I love the way they make me feel, too. So much healthier!
I’ve shared our own exclusive Anthro diffuser recipes with our wellness group for my Young Living customers, but today I’m posting them for y’all to enjoy!
I gathered all of the oils into a handy “wishlist” for you linked below. Feel free to add or subtract anything from the list! When you check out make sure my referral number (3731456) is there so you can get into my group for even more fun recipes!

MY ANTHROPOLOGIE-INSPIRED VOLCANO ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER RECIPE:
Anthropologie describes their Volcano scent as smelling of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, and limes, redolent with lightly exotic mountain greens. That sounds heavenly, yes? It is.
This is the recipe we used in the Desert Mist diffuser (one of the starter kit diffuser options). It’s a lot of drops, but the Anthropologie candle is always a strong scent so if you want a more subtle effect or have a very small room, you can adjust to your preferences!
- 5 drops lemon
- 5 drops lime
- 3 drops orange
- 2 drops grapefruit
- 2 drops northern lights black spruce
- 1 drop bergamot
MY ANTHROPOLOGIE-INSPIRED SWEET VANILLA CINNAMON DIFFUSER RECIPE:
- 3 drops Vanilla
- 1 drop Cinnamon Bark
- 1 drop Nutmeg
(Try more drops of each in a larger space or for stronger scent)
