Benefits of Diffusing During the Holidays

Diffusing essential oils is a really fun and effective way to clean and your air, support your immune system AND make your house smell amazing.  Keep reading to discover why you need these holiday diffuser blends in your home today.

Who doesn’t want their house to smell warm and cozy this time of year? How popular are Christmas and winter scented candles and wax melts? The problem with candles and wax melts is they release harmful chemicals into the air along with their sweet scents. Most of us don’t know this or we just don’t care because we are intoxicated by the appealing aromas.

When diffusing essential oils, you get to chose the combination of oils to get the perfect scent for your mood, and there is no shortage of combinations to choose from.

When you diffuse essential oils, they emit healing properties into the air AND help to clean toxins out of the air.  And diffusers make a beautiful statement in your home.

Diffusers also release humidity into the air which can help with the discomfort that comes with dried mucous membranes from being cooped up in dry, warm air.

So, instead of inhaling chemicals and toxins into your lungs, try some of these diffuser blends and breathe mother nature’s medicine into your lungs and body.

“I invite you to drink in the divine nectar of aromatic love and let it penetrate you in the deepest, most
profound ways. Trust that the oils are working side-by-side to heal, regenerate, and teach you. The more
you use them, the more they’ll reveal their secrets to you”
Elana Millman, Aromatherapy for Sensual Living: Essential Oils for the Ecstatic Soul
