What is essential oil diffusing?
Essential oil diffusing means applying essential oil aromatically either by inhaling or using a diffuser with a without water. You can also essential oils on a diffuser bracelet or a necklace. Just a drop or two of your favorite essential oils on the black lava beads will do the trick. My favorite way is to use a drop or two on the palms of the hand or on essential oil bracelet and taking a deep breath. I also love to use water essential oils diffusers which product a fine mist of water mixed with the essential oils. They are easy to use and will fill up a room or the whole house with a beautiful scent. You can find essential oil diffusers from Amazon or Doterra. I have a travel diffuser from Amazon which works great and I also use the Doterra Petal diffusers in my house. I use a diffuser in the bedroom whenever I like to create a relaxing environment to help sleep or when I’m feeling like I’m getting sick.
Why Diffuse Essential Oils?
Essential oils have been used for hundreds of years aromatically. The sense of smell is strong in humans and linked to emotional feedback. Certain smells can take you back to different events in your life, make you happy or think of certain places. Essential oils interact with the chemicals in the brain causing a response which is tied to our emotions. Here is how the process is explained by Doterra:
How to Diffuse Essential Oils?
You can apply a drop of essential oil on a dryer sheet and enjoy the benefits of essential oil scented laundry. You can add a few drops of essential oils in a water bottle and mist your laundry or sheets with it. It also works great as a pillow spray for sleep. I have a small water bottle that I fill with filtered water and use a few drops of the Doterra Serenity essential oil. It creates a wonderful, relaxing scent when sprayed on the pillow and sheets at night time. I love to use the Doterra diffusers in the bedrooms. They are so simple to use. You just add water to the line inside the diffuser and add a few drops of your essential oils. I’ve found that 3-8 drops are enough depending on the oils I’m using. For example for sleeping I like to use Doterra blend Serenity or lavender. If I’m feeling under the weather, I like to use frankincense and the Doterra Breath blend or eucalyptus essential oil. Once the diffuser is on, the fine water mist fills the room with the aromatic scent.
