Diffusers?  How relevant are they to a healthier and virus-free household?  I would say ‘extremely relevant’.

Petal Diffuser

Diffusers are really clever little devices that enable you to distribute beautiful and purposeful aromas throughout your home, office, or storage areas to create a cleaner and fresher ‘air’ and enhance the healing process if someone is unwell in the environment.                                                                                                                 You may have a diffuser already, and completely happy with it, however, you may also live in a home where there are several rooms, and you want to create a different effect in each room.  That’s why I suggest several diffusers that range from 4 to 10 hours of continual vaporizing.  There really is nothing confusing about diffusing at all, it’s just a matter of embracing it.  Let’s learn some more…..

The Best Reasons For Using  A Diffuser:

Unwind at the end of a long or hard day: While there are several other methods for getting your soothing essential oils from the bottle into your bloodstream where they start to work their magic, the diffuser is by far the easiest and longest-lasting of them all. Keep one at the office to help you relax on your lunch break. Have a diffuser ready to go with the push of a button when you get home from work in the evening. While cleaning and dusting your home always have a diffuser on and in action.  Set one on the bedside table to help your mind and body relax so you can sleep better at night.
Recommended oils: Chamomile, Lavender, Clary sage - Lavender peace, and cedarwood under the feet for the deepest of nights of sleep!

Inspiration:  You can use your diffuser to inspire and uplift your spirits on any given day and 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.
Recommended oils: Wild orange, Jasmine, Rose, BalanceSandalwood, Vanilla, Elevation, Citrus Bliss, and Whisper blend.

Avoid Getting Sick:   Using a diffuser in your home or office is a great way to keep cold, flu, and other nasty illnesses at bay that works on three levels.

First, 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.  The image I get when I think of that is a battle in Star Wars.

Second, essential oils can also be used to boost the immune system.  Some diffusers also double as humidifiers which will help to keep your airways moist and healthy so you are less susceptible to any microbes that do make it into your body.  Recommended oils: Tea tree, Sage, Lemon, Rosemary, Grapefruit, Thyme, and On Guard.

Breathe easier:  Essential oils are great for reducing inflammation and congestion in clogged airways to help you breathe more easily. If you are prone to allergies or other breathing disorders, try diffusing essential oils in the rooms of your home where you spend the most time.
Recommended oils: Peppermint, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Tea tree, the Easy Air blend, Lime and Cardamom.

Helps with pain:  While most people will tell you to apply essential oils directly to the body for pain relief, you can also use a diffuser to extend their effects. This method is an excellent way to combat persistent pain such as that caused by headaches, sore joints, and overworked muscles.
Recommended oils: Ginger, Chamomile, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Clary sage, Rosemary, Bergamot and Ice blue (deep blue).

Helps the brain:  Using essential oils in a diffuser is a highly effective way to super-charge your brain cells. Again, this effect works on multiple levels. First, many essential oils are soothing when you’re stressed, but they can also give you a pick-me-up when you’re feeling down or sluggish. By leveling out your mood, the oils in the air will help you to focus. Also, there are several essential oils that are known for their powerful ability to balance the body’s hormones. With regular use, these oils can actually help to heal the underlying causes responsible for hampering cognitive function.

Recommended oils: Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Douglas Fir, Frankincense and In Tune Focus Blend.

You will notice I have a few recommended diffusers here on this website.  They are functional and dependable, that’s why I suggest them!  One particular The Lua‘..I like what Jannette has to say about the device…

The new Alcyon LUA ultrasonic humidifier was sent to me to review which was super handy cos I’d actually been after an ultrasonic Diffuser humidifier for my baby’s room for ages! I’d done a lot of research about humidifiers/vaporizers online and had decided that I definitely wanted to go with an ultrasonic because they are heat-free and thus far safer (no risk of nasty burns and that sort of thing).   If you want to read more about what Jannette has to say just click on this link.  Also, check out the Taiko, both are functional and practical to use.
