If you love essential oils, a good diffuser is a must-have investment. Essential oils do more than just smell nice; they can play a key role in holistic wellness. (It’s important to remind yourself of that when you impulse buy random oils.) And a good diffuser is the fastest way to reap these benefits for your home and your health.
Improved air quality: When you diffuse essential oils into a room, you have a great way to combat airborne pathogens. And you can’t beat essential oils for a natural air freshener. Essential oils actually alter the odor molecule structure, rather than just covering them up.
Breathe easier: Stuffy nose? Try diffusing eucalyptus or peppermint. Their menthol constituents help us open up and breathe easy.
Boost immune system: Essential oils are not only killing off viruses in the air, but they also give your immune system a boost. Essential oils are also great for detoxing, helping cleanse and clear the body of toxic build-up.
Better sleep: Lots of essential oils have relaxing, even sedative, properties that can help you fall asleep easier and improve sleep quality. Here are four of our favorite sleep-inducing diffuser blends.
Change Your Mood: Breathing in essential oils affects the limbic system, the part of the brain that controls emotions. Different scents trigger different emotional responses, which can result in emotional stability, calmness, or relaxation. Try these essential oils when you’re anxious or stressed.
