One of the best and most well-known uses for essential oils is their ability to help you unwind at the end of a hard day. While massage is always a good way to absorb them through your skin and into your blood stream where they start to work their magic, this diffuser is by far the easiest way to incorporate aromatherapy into your life 24/7. Use it in the office / workplace / classroom to create a calm stress free healthy environment or use it at home to create an instant relaxing spa feeling with the simple touch of a button and as this is ultrasonic you can leave it on in the bedroom to help your mind and body relax so you can sleep better at night and wake up refreshed.
Just as this diffuser can help you to de-stress, it can also be used to create an energizing mood. There are many essential oils you can use to create a positive atmosphere for business meetings and social gatherings, to help you get moving on a slow morning, to lift your spirits on a bad day or even to create a romantic atmosphere for that special someone in your life.
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 within the oils come into direct contact with airborne pathogens before they can invade your body.
Second, essential oils can also be used to boost the immune system.
Last but not least, as this diffuser also doubles up as a humidifier it will help to keep your airways moist and healthy so you are less susceptible to any microbes that do make it into your body.
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 home where you spend the most time. Just remember to keep a box of tissues handy as your nose and sinuses begin to open so you can also avoid that mad dash to the bathroom!
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.
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 have adaptogenic qualities – meaning that they 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 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.
If you have pets or small children, burning candles or incense can be a potentially hazardous practice. With an essential oil diffuser, you can reap the benefits of aromatherapy – and to much greater effect – without the risk of burns, wax spills, or other accidents.
