Diffusers are one of the fastest ways to reap the benefits of essentials oils. They break down essentials oils into smaller molecules, and disperse them into the air at a speed and intensity that is comfortable to inhale. The vapor then fills the room, scented with your preferred essential oil fragrance.
Essential oils are extracted from plants through cold pressing techniques or steaming in order to capture that plant’s beneficial essence. When inhaled through a diffuser, essential oils have many wellness benefits. Some essential oils act as a natural decongestant, which means inhaling them through a diffuser helps open up the nasal passageway. This is an excellent home remedy for common colds, though should not replace regular doctor’s visits. Essential oils can offer relief from headaches, anxiety, and stress, as well as improve mood, energy, and incite feelings of being reenergized. When inhaled, essential oils interact with the brain and nervous system, helping us to recall specific memories and feelings, and improving our mood as well as overall wellness.
The vapor from diffusers can also add humidity to dry air, which has been known to improve the moisture quality in skin and aid in diminishing dry, itchy throats. This is especially helpful during the cool winter months or in consistently dry climates like the desert. When filling your diffuser, only a few drops are needed to experience the pleasant fragrance of your chosen essential oil.
The accessibility and low maintenance of diffusers make them an exceptional choice for achieving long-term wellness goals by transforming our space and our mood. Incorporate them into your daily routine, which is a small step in creating rituals to improve health. Turn on the diffuser when you’d like to fill the room with your desired aroma. Use them throughout the day to disperse an uplifting scent in the room of your choice. Keep a diffuser on your desk during the workday to promote alertness or calmness, depending on your chosen essential oil. At bedtime, turn on your diffuser to circulate the aroma throughout the night, potentially resulting in a deeper, more relaxed sleep.
