If you are no stranger to natural living, you must have heard that essential oils are all the rage these days. Their healing and supportive properties offer lots of benefits. Essential Oils can increase your energy, improve your wellbeing, help you sleep better and improve your focus. One of the easiest ways to use essential oils is aromatically using a diffuser, here are the top reasons why you should consider buying a diffuser...
1. Promotes a Restful Sleep and allows you to Relax After a Long Day
After a hard day at work using a diffuser to help you unwind at the end of a long day has a magical way to help you relax! While there are many ways to use essential oils using a diffuser is by far the easiest and most effective way of all, it is so easy with just the push of a button. One of the benefits of using an essential oil diffuser is that it improves the body’s natural cycles and can aid in fighting off sleep disorders. Diffusing for short periods of time, usually 20 minutes before you go to bed is usually the best way, y favourite oils to choose for relaxing are Lavender, Bergamot or Sandalwood.
2. Support a Healthy Immune System
The powerful anti-microbial properties of essential oils can be boosted when used through a diffuser. Using a diffuser is an amazing way to ward off colds, flu and other illnesses. Essential Oils have great anti-microbial properties when evaporated into the air, oils such as Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Sweet Orange are believed to stimulate the production of white cells and boost the immune system. Using a diffuser can be a wonderful solution to ward off those nasty seasonal illnesses.
3. Boost Memory and Concentration
The benefits of essential oil diffusing are many, but one of the main purposes is to promote deep penetration and mental clarity. Diffusing is great to increase oxygen and blood flow to the glands helping to support mental health. The oils considered best for diffusing to support memory, focus and cognitive function are Rosemary, Peppermint, Basil and Lemongrass. Super charge your brain cells by diffusing these oils regularly. They are soothing when you are stressed, they can also cheer you up and boost your concentration.
4. Safe Alternative to Eliminate Odours
There are many benefits of diffusing essential oils which can be easily felt when it comes to eliminating odours. Many air fresheners contain toxic chemicals that you spray into the air and then breathe in, some store bought candles and incense sticks can also be dangerous especially around children and pets sometimes causing allergic reactions. Avoid breathing them in by using an essential oil diffuser, this is a more natural way of purifying the air while scenting it.
5. Promotes healthy respiratory function
If you are affected by allergies or clogged airways, constantly bunged up, why not diffuse essential oils in the areas that you spend the most time. One of my favourite blends uses Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lemon.
6. Cleanses and Purifies the Air
You take all the necessary steps to keep your loved ones healthy, good food, exercise, why not learn how to purify the air they breathe whilst in the home. Airborne bacteria is unseen but can still cause issues for you and your family, using a diffuser you can create an anti-bacterial environment to help keep your family healthy. The best essential oils are Lemon, Tea Tree, Oregano and Cinnamon.
7. Helps to get you in a Better Mood!
Along with purifying the air, essential oil diffusing also helps to de-stress, cheer you up if you are feeling low and creates a positive atmosphere. When inhaled essential oils can interact with the limbic system, which is linked to our mood and emotions so they have a unique ability to have a positive effect on us. It can also help set a romantic atmosphere for a special person in your life. The best essential oils to get and stay in a good mood are Lavender, Sweet Orange, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Peppermint, Patchouli and Bergamot.
Before use always seek the advice and guidance of your medical practitioner. Pregnant ladies need to understand some oils are unsafe, please ensure you check before diffusing any oils if you are pregnant. There are some oils that should not be used around young children please ensure you know which oils are safe and which to avoid with young children. If you have pets please ensure that the oils you use are safe around animals and always give your pet an escape route out of the immediate area where you are diffusing, remember animals have a much more sensitive nose than us humans!
