We live in a world that is increasingly busy and full of distractions. The stress of daily life can consume all of our energy, leaving us feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. After a long day, your home should offer a respite from the craziness and provide an opportunity to rejuvenate. If you’re constantly looking for a boost at the end of your day, essential oils can help relieve stress and increase your peace, calm and energy.
Beyond adding an aroma to a room, essential oils provide many diverse benefits. Using a diffuser is an easy way to disperse them so that their scent can fill a room with the oil’s natural fragrance. Among their many benefits, these oils can help energize or relax you, provide sinus and allergy relief and provide a safer alternative to candles and incense, and even get rid of bugs. Do you love having a fresh scent in your home but dislike the strong smell of an artificial air freshener? An essential oil diffuser is a great way to freshen up your home without overpowering the senses. As an added bonus, it does not rely on harmful chemicals.

We have many stressors in our day that can cause us to feel restless, stressed or unsettled. Create a calming effect in your home with your essential oil diffuser. Some oils that are recommended to promote calm and ease anxiety are bergamot, chamomile, rose and frankincense.
Ward Off Illness
Essential oils have powerful antimicrobials that can help kill germs lurking in your home. By diffusing the oils into the air, you can kill off airborne germs before you become ill. The oils can also help boost your immunity, reducing the likelihood of a cold or flu. Oregano oil can help prevent flu, peppermint can ward off a cough or cold and lemon helps prevent or reduce the severity of viruses.
Flies, mosquitoes and other household pests have a knack for finding ways into your house. Make your home inhospitable to these pesky critters with your essential oil diffuser. Recommended oils include clove, lemongrass, rosemary and cedarwood.
Safe Alternative to Candles and Incense
Many scented candles have chemicals, such as toluene and benzene, which can cause damage to the brain, lung and central nervous system. High quality candles without toxic chemicals can be quite costly. There is also the possibility of fire hazard when burning candles or incense. A diffuser is the perfect way to scent your home without posing a health or fire risk.
Allergies can cause respiratory issues, clogged sinuses and scratchy throats. Diffusing essential oils into the air can provide ongoing relief, without the medication that leaves you feeling tired and out of sorts. Oils such as peppermint, basil, eucalyptus and tea tree oils can provide comfort and ease.
Increased Exercise Endurance
According to research published in the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology, peppermint oil can increase athletic performance. Subjects were able to run faster, have a stronger grip and complete more pushups after smelling peppermint. For an added workout boost, add peppermint oil to your diffuser prior to hitting the gym or while exercising out at home.
If Mondays always leave you feeling depleted, boost your mood with some energizing essential oils. Essential oils can help you get moving in the morning or avoid that 3 pm energy crash. Stay awake and alert and get a much needed energy boost from citrus oils, ginger, vanilla or rosemary.
Whether you are distracted, unable to focus, or just need to be on top of your game, essential oils can help. Give yourself an extra advantage by boosting your memory and increasing your attention span by diffusing peppermint, pine, or eucalyptus.
Freshen up the Air
Unlike most air freshening sprays and plug-ins, essential oils do not put harmful chemicals in the air. They also lack the cloying and irritating scents that many store bought fresheners have. Simply put a scent that you enjoy in your oil diffuser and enjoy.
Does your significant other snore and interrupt your rest? Ease your frustration, help him breathe better and get yourself a good night’s sleep by using recommended oils: eucalyptus, vetiver, marjoram, or tea tree.
Calm Children Safely
When children are whiny, frustrated, or just overtired, diffusing essential oils can help calm them down. There are ‘Peace and Calm’ blends available on the market or you can use oils such as vetiver, cedarwood and lavender to restore calm to your home.
Keep You Cool
When it’s hot outside and you’re not quite ready to turn up the air conditioning, you can cool your house naturally. Minty oils such as peppermint, wintergreen and spearmint can help you feel fresh and cool. Move your diffuser to the room you plan on spending the most time in and enjoy the crisp cooling.
Set the Mood
Set a fun and festive holiday mood with a blend of essential oils. Nothing quite says Christmas like pine or a blend of orange and cinnamon. Cinnamon, clove and black pepper can evoke the scent of fall. You can also set the mood for a romantic evening with oils such as sandalwood, rose, ylang ylang or jasmine.
