It’s no secret that we love our essential oils. Whether you’re using them to add a natural fragrance to a DIY beauty product or applying them topically, essential oils offer a range of benefits to your overall health and wellness. One of our favorite ways to reap the benefits of essential oils is through essential oil diffusers. Simply pour a few droplets of your favorite essential oils into the diffuser’s water tank, and go on with your day as the diffuser emits a fine aromatized mist that will change you and your home for the better. Here’s why:
- Most essential oil diffusers double as humidifiers, making them a great during cold and flu season as they keep your airways moist and healthy so they’re able to defend against bacteria and viruses. We love tea tree and lemon essential oils for this.
- Diffusers are by far the easiest way to experience the aromatherapy benefits of essential oils. Ready to go with little to no preparation, diffusers emit the calming fragrances of your favorite essential oil blends to help ease you into relaxation mode. Essential oils such as lavender and eucalyptus oils are perfect for this.
- Just as they can mellow you out, essential oil diffusers can help energize and enhance your mood. Sweet Essential oils like lemon or sweet orange call your senses to attention and in doing so, enhance your focus whenever you’re feeling sluggish and unmotivated.
- Essential oils are highly effective at quelling inflammation and combating chest and nasal congestion. Making a diffuser a must-have for anyone who experiences allergies or respiratory conditions. Peppermint, eucalyptus, and lemon essential oils open your airways and help you breathe with ease.
Essential oil diffusers are a safer and more cost-effective alternative to most candles and incense. An added bonus? Essential oil diffusers are an environmentally friendly choice as they don’t create waste like jarred candles.
