Knowing what essential oils to use for what ailment is of the utmost importance to promote healing and wellbeing.
Physical illnesses can knock you off your feet. In today’s busy world, the last thing you need is to get sick.
Essential oil diffusers can release blends that are antiviral and antibacterial to keep you going strong even in the dead of winter. Some can also increase the strength of your immune system.
If you do happen to catch a cold, have a cough, or are congested, your lungs and sinuses will thank you when you break out an essential oil diffuser to help clear your passageways for better breathing.
If you suffer from a chronic condition, such as migraines or arthritis, using a diffuser can give you the relief you need to go about your day without pain.
They can also be beneficial when life gets overwhelming and you get sad or depressed. Or, when things get to be more than you can handle and you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks.
Inhalation is the most common way that people reap the health benefits of essential oils. Essential oil diffusers are the perfect way to disperse the small molecules in the essential oil through the air to enter the body. When you inhale the scent, the multiple 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.
You don’t need to be suffering to reap the benefits of essential oil diffusers; you might be at the top of your game, feeling fit in mind, body, and spirit. But they can be used for other fantastic purposes:
Start your day on a high note, every single morning. A few drops of wild orange and peppermint in an essential oil diffuser can help you smile all the day through.
Welcome people into your fresh smelling home. People will love coming to visit when the lemon, spearmint, grapefruit and lavender aroma greet them at the door.
Cut through the odors. Did you cook fish for dinner? Or maybe your teen just came home from football practice. Either way, you’ll stanch the stench with lemon oil, teat tree, cilantro, and lime.
Send a message to mosquitos: get out. Flies and other bothersome bugs will head back the way they came when you diffuse a blend that contain lemongrass, thyme, eucalyptus, and basil oil.
Of course, when you’re feeling blue, have a cold, or need a pick-me-up, there’s an essential oil that is well suited for any occasion.
Differences Between Essential Oil Diffusers
Of the 4 main types of essential oil diffusers available, nebulizing, evaporative, heat, and ultrasonic, nebulizing diffusers are the best choice for those who take their health seriously.
Ultrasonic Diffusers - Ultrasonic units do not use heat, but the oils must be diluted with water. This can weaken them to the point of minimal effectiveness. This type of diffuser is made of plastic and must be cleaned regularly to avoid corrosion.
Candle Diffusers -Essential oil diffusers that use heat tend to weaken or destroy important compounds, which can compromise their potency. Sometimes this type of diffuser uses an open flame, such as a tea candle, which can pose a burn risk.
Reed Diffusers - When evaporative machines are used, the essential oil evaporates and is released into the air. One drawback is that as the essential oil evaporates, the lighter components will disperse faster than heavier components, making it difficult to get the complete benefits of the oils.
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). Single essential oils are good but a blend can be better. A good essential oil recipe to try is...
2 drops lemon + 1 drop tea tree (melaleuca) + 1 drop cilantro + 1 drop lime to freshen the room and reduce odors.
1 drop rosemary + 1 drop clove + 1 drop eucalyptus + 1 drop cinnamon + 1 drop wild orange to increase immunity to fight off colds and flu.
2 drops frankincense + 2 drops bergamot when you’re nerves are shot and you need to calm down and relax.
2 drops lavender + 2 drops chamomile + 2 drops vetiver can help you fall asleep and stay asleep.
The more you learn about essential oils, the easier it will be to make your own blends and create something that is unique to you and your needs.
