To kick off this blog I wanted to talk about Diffusing Essential Oils, some back story: ever since I can remember I’ve been all about the scented candles and in the past it’s not been uncommon for me to have 4 or 5 on the go at the same time. Since I decided I was only going to buy only Cruelty Free candles (which whittled down my choices) it got me thinking- Is there another way to have a lovely smelling home? I did some online research and found one of the best ways is to diffuse essential oils 🙂 Not only do they smell great but they are beneficial to our health too!
I found this SOTO Aroma diffuser online here This one works with no heat source which stops it from degrading the oils – It also means it’s safe to leave it running whilst asleep. It’s incredibly easy to use, just fill with water using the cup provided and then add 6-8 drops of essential oil. It has LED mood lighting and acts as a mini humidifier and air purifier too! Since having it I’ve used it loads. My favourite combination is Eucalyptus and Peppermint.
Caution: Do not use Citrus oils in this diffuser as it damages the chamber inside.
I love the brand Tisserand for oils: these are my favourites and what they are said to benefit:
Eucalyptus – Coughs, Asthma and Circulation
Ginger – Digestive Issues and Vertigo
Lavender – Insomnia and Stress
Peppermint – Allergies and Digestion
Tea Tree – Fights Infections and Viruses
Have you tried diffusing before? What are your favourite oils or blends?
