Benefits of an Essential Oil Diffuser

Benefits of an Essential Oil Diffuser

Last Updated on February 2, 2022 by Organic Aromas

Inhalation is the most common way that people reap the benefits of essential oils.  Essential oil diffusers are used to disperse the small molecules in the essential oil through the air so that they may enter the body. When you inhale the scent, the many receptors in your mucus membranes take the smell, identify it, and send sensory stimulation messages to your brain. Your brain then decides how to react based on the molecules in the essential oil.

For example, if you use rosemary oil in your essential oil diffuser, your brain will recognize the molecules that can lift your mood, ease headache pain, and improve your focus.

If you are looking for something soothing to add to your essential oil diffusers, a few drops of ylang-ylang dispersed in the air will send signals to your brain to relax.

And when all else fails and you simply cannot smell a thing because your sinuses are so congested, using eucalyptus in your essential oil diffusers can clear you out enough to finally breathe better.

The Benefit of Physical Health

Physical illness can be disabling. There might be days when you can’t even make it out the door. By filling an essential oil diffuser with healing scents, you can lie on the couch and reap the benefits. Adding peppermint to essential oil diffusers can sooth nausea, sooth migraine headache pain, improve digestion, and reduce allergic reactions. Oregano is great for respiratory disorders, heartburn, and relieving menstrual pain. Sandalwood oil can ease the symptoms of sore and strep throat as well as UTIs. When you are able to diffuse the oil at a consistent rate, you’ll benefit from constant inhalation without having to take a pill or swallow medicine.

The Benefit of Mental Health

Sometimes, you just don’t feel like doing anything. You might be sad, or anxious, or too stressed to think about what you need to do next. But filling up your essential oil diffuser is all you need to do to start feeling better. Let the magic of the oils work wonders on your mind. Using lavender in your essential oil diffuser will promote relaxation, and chamomile has long been lauded for its soothing effects. Rose and black pepper oil can fight anxiety, while pine and jasmine work against depression. Using essential oil diffusers to disperse them will keep the good molecules going all day to continue helping you feel good.

The Benefit of Purity  

Essential oil diffusers can clean and purify the air without chemical sprays or heavy duty cleaning. Using basil essential oil can help reduce allergens with its antimicrobial properties. Tea tree oil is great for disinfecting the air from bacteria and viruses, but it also boosts immunity to help prevent illness. When flu season hits, using ravinsara oil in your essential oil diffuser can disinfect the air to help prevent others from becoming ill, but it can also speed healing in those who already are. Essential oils are great bug repellents, so putting lemon or citronella oil into your diffuser can keep them away all day.

The Benefit of Convenience

When it comes to the benefits of using essential oil diffusers, it really boils down to the best way to intake essential oils without any fuss. You simply add your favorite oil or blend to the essential oil diffuser and go about your day. It’s easy and convenient. You don’t need to boil anything on the stove, you don’t need to carry a bottle around with you all day, and you don’t need to spray anything around the room. The essential oil diffusers will continue to work steadily without any extra help. It makes the home smell wonderful and anyone who comes to visit you will surely remark upon it. Set it on a shelf and forget about it.
