10 Very Good Reasons why every home should have a diffuser
Using essential oils to scent your home is becoming more and more popular as it has been established that essential oils are beneficial for both the mind and body.
What are the best ways to get the benefits from essential oils?
That answer varies , but if you're looking to breathe in the benefits from the air while adding scent to your home, ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers are by far the best method.
Ultrasonic diffusers disperse natural aromas and create healthy living environments using advanced air technologies with many benefits over heat-based diffusers that use candles or heat elements. Ultrasonics use a high-frequency, low-energy vibrations to break down essential oils into fine particles as a mist that is dispersed into the air. There are numerous benefits to this system, allowing you to do all of the following:
Use Less Oil.
Purify Your Air
Reap the Benefits of Oils.
Beyond these benefits, each model has its own features that appeal to different needs. Scentsy models have multi-coloured ambient lighting that can be set to a specific colour or to switch between colours. Each model has a different setting allowing you to control the rate of diffusion.
1. To relax and assist in a peaceful night's sleep ( reduces snoring! )
It is well-known that one of the uses for essential oils is their ability to help you unwind at the end of a hard day. While there are several other methods for getting your soothing oils from the bottle into your blood stream 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 keep calm and even tempered during work.. 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. Research suggests that yes, essential oils can help with people suffering from snoring. An interesting study scientifically recorded and tested snoring and the relief thereof after using essential oils at bed time. An astonishing 82% of people using the essential oils to help stop snoring had partners reporting a reduction in snoring.
Recommended oils: chamomile, lavender, clary sage
2. Mood Elevating
Just as a diffuser can help you to de-stress, they can also be used to create an uplifting, joyous mood. This is not only great for when you’re feeling sad or depressed. You can use your diffuser to inspire high spirits 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.
Recommended oils: sweet orange, jasmine, rose, scotch pine, sandalwood, vanilla
3. Ward Off Illness
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 vapour form, the organic compounds in the oils come into direct contact with those little airborne suckers before they can invade your body. Next, essential oils can also be used to boost the immune system. Last but not least, 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, rosemary, grapefruit, lemon, thyme
4. Helps You 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 room (or rooms) of your house where you spend the most time.
Just remember to keep a box of tissues handy for when your nose
and sinuses begin to open and your nose starts to leak!
Recommended oils: peppermint, rosemary, lemon, eucalyptus
5. Pain Relief
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 alleviate persistent pain such as that caused by headaches, sore joints, and overworked muscles.
Recommended oils: ginger, chamomile, lavender, eucalyptus, clary sage, rosemary, bergamot
6. Improve Cognitive Function
Using essential oils in a diffuser is a highly-effective way to super-charge your brain cells. Many essential oils have changeable qualities – sometimes they are soothing when you’re stressed, but they can also give you a boost when you’re feeling down or sluggish. By levelling out your mood, you are more able to focus. Plus, there are several essential oils which 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, and Rosemary in particular has been said to alleviate Dementia!
