Most people have seen an aroma diffuser at least once in their life, but many don’t know what it is. Simply put, a diffuser is a means of dispersing essential oils into the air, filling the room with a natural fragrance. That said, aroma diffusers have many benefits other than simply smelling good. That’s because when you diffuse essential oils, the benefits get even better. If you need any more convincing, here are the top five reasons to get a diffuser of your own:
1. Relax and Sleep
Ever use essential oils to help get yourself to sleep? Imagine the soothing smells of lavender or chamomile wafting throughout your bedroom. A diffuser can help spread the love throughout any relaxation space, helping you calm down, meditate, or gently rocking you to sleep. Try using the Quooz Lull or Spa Room Aero Mist Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser for an extra luxurious atmosphere.
2. Breathe Easier
Whether you have a slight tickle in your throat or are experiencing some serious lung trouble, a diffuser can help disperse essential oils with special properties that make you feel better. Try using our Respiratory Essential Oil Blend for an especially refreshing diffuser experience. By dispersing aromatic oils throughout the air, you can breathe easier and get back to normal in no time.
3. Repel Insects
Instead of lathering yourself with oils or unhealthy, chemical-heavy repellents, try using a diffuser to ward off annoying pests. Just add your favorite insect-repelling essential oil, like lavender, thyme, or clove, to any diffuser and soon the sweet smell of bug-free victory will fill the room.
4. Replace Candles/Incense
Candles and incense are a popular way to create an aromatic atmosphere, but using a diffuser has a distinct advantage. Because it uses essential oils, a diffuser disperses the benefits of the oils throughout the room, but without leaving behind any pesky smoke or burnt particles. Also, many candles contain synthetic fragrances that can be irritating to skin, eyes and allergies. Diffusing essential oils is a great way to naturally scent and freshen up a space. To add some extra flair, use the AromaMist Aromatherapy Diffuser, which comes with a beautiful and stylish light feature.
5. Encourage Health
Let’s face it. We avoid illness like the plague. And for good reason. Protecting yourself from sickness of any degree is an important part of keeping your body healthy. When you feel the first pangs of getting sick, or have been around someone fighting cold or flu, give essential oils a try. The aromatic benefits can lift your spirits, relax the mind and encourage deep breathing, all good strategies for staying healthy. The Source Vitál Electric Aromatherapy Diffuser is a great and effective way to get the best bang from your bottle.
