Essential oil diffusers are probably the best way to experience the benefits of essential oils. They take pure essential oils and release them into the atmosphere for your inhaling pleasure. Whether you’re feeling blue, have a cold, or need a pick-me-up, there’s an essential oil that is well suited for the occasion. Essential oil diffusers are the perfect vehicle to get the good times rolling.

Single Oils For Your Essential Oil Diffusers

There are plenty of single oils out there that can do amazing things to your atmosphere when used on their own. They can fight many ailments that you might struggle with such as insomnia (lavender), nausea (peppermint), depression (grapefruit), or simply mental fatigue (cinnamon). When you add a few drops of them to essential oil diffusers, you can keep breathing in their health benefits all day and night to help you feel better.

But sometimes, you might need a more powerful combination of oils to beat those blues, or to work other wonders on your spirit. This is where making a blend for your essential oil diffusers comes in.

    Thanks for all the advices you give in how to use EO.
    I had been using essential oils, incense and candles all my life. Without even know that cats and dogs could be allergic to some oils. My pets seems to be doing ok, with all of the oils I use, including all the ones in the no,no, list.
    I’m worry now, after reading all this info.
    What should I do? After all this time nothing ever happen to none of them, should I stop using them? I use a diffuser that uses water and only use 4 or 5 drops of oils.

    Thank you! I’m glad to learn some great recipes. Especially, glad about the recipe for Banish The Bugs! This past couple summers, my saltwater pool has been a HONEY BEE hangout. I use PEPPERMINT & LEMON all around the edges & ladder (be careful can get slick with too much oil). I also used 10-12 drops each diluted in a spray bottle & would spray the air as walking to the pool. The BEE’S would fly off, they’d come back after things got calm, I’d just repeat the process. I don’t like to kill them, they are HONEY BEES, however. Thought I’d share.
