Essential oils have been long used for many purposes and are most commonly associated with the practice of aromatherapy. It has never been easier to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy for yourself and your family. Once you get started, you will want a diffuser in every room, of your house. Seriously. Here’s how to enjoy the oils in each area of your house:
In the bedroom: Set it up on your nightstand to enhance relaxation and deep sleep. Combined with a nighttime routine to signal the body that it is time for rest, using a diffuser can be incredibly effective in helping you drift off into dreamland. The oils that I recommend for bedtime are lavender, ylang ylang and Roman chamomile. These particular oils have been shown to support reduced feelings of stress and anxiety–common culprits for lack of quality sleep.
In the bathroom: Set yourself up for a spa experience by using your diffuser while you enjoy a relaxing bath or a hot shower. Waking up in the mornings can be more invigorating with the scent of wild orange or a blend like DoTerra’s Elevation. And winding down at night can be supported by a grounding scent like Frankincense, which is also known to support healthy cellular function in the body. (By the way, if you’re taking a bath, you can add the oils directly into the tub to enjoy their benefits too!)
In your office: Having difficulty concentrating on your work? Try a couple drops of peppermint in your diffuser and mix in a little bit of wild orange for a mood boost as well. Peppermint oil can make you feel reinvigorated and much more focused. It’s also a great oil to breathe in before your workout. The method for this is simple: place a drop of peppermint in your hand, rubs your palms together, cup them in front of your face and then breeeeathe.
In the living room: Keep the air your family is breathing clean and disinfected! Did you know that most air fresheners and candles are loaded with toxins? The cleaning industry is self-regulated, meaning that there is NO regulation as to what goes into them. When you think about how many toxic products you’re exposed to and how often, it is easy to see how the use of these products can cause long-term problems as the toxins accumulate in your body over time. Diffusing essential oils is a great alternative to most commercial products because they smell just as good (or better, in my opinion) and provide positive benefits, such as boosting the immune system and helping to relieve cold and flu symptoms.
