Relaxation, Sleep & Serenity
One of the best and most common uses for essential oils is their calming ability. Ahhhh, relaxation.
There’s several other methods for getting your calming oils from the bottle into your blood stream where they start to work their ‘oily’ magic, the diffuser is by far the easiest and longest-lasting of them all. Keep one in your car to help you relax on your morning commute. Have a diffuser ready to go with the push of a button when you get home from work in the evening. Set one on the bedside table to help your mind and body relax so you can sleep better at night.
Recommended oils: lavender, clary sage
A nice diffuser can not only help you de-stress but it can also be used to create an energizing mood. This is not only great for when you’re feeling sad or depressed. You can use your diffuser to inspire high spirits (and a festive mood) during the holidays, to set a positive atmosphere for business meetings and social gatherings, to help you get moving on a slow morning, or even to create a romantic atmosphere for that special someone in your life.

Using a diffuser in your home or office is a great way to keep cold, flu, and other nasty illnesses away. Many essential oils are powerfully anti-microbial and when introduced into the air in vapor form, the organic compounds within the oils come into direct contact with airborne pathogens before they can invade your body. Essential oils can also be used to boost the immune system.

Safer than Candles & Incense
If you have pets or small children, burning candles or incense can be a potentially hazardous practice. Especially if you have kids. (Moms you know exactly what we’re talking about here, am I right? 😉 )
With an essential oil diffuser, you enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy – and to much greater effect – without the risk of burns, wax spills, or other accidents like the kiddos sticking the dogs paw in the hot wax or pouring wax down your drains. 🙂
As you can see an essential oil diffuser is a ‘must-have’ for home, work and even in the car.
