Diffusing Doterra Essential Oils To Freshen Your Home and Reduce Stress

Nov 17

Ever walked into a room and it just reeked of artificial fragrance. Maybe they have plugins in their house or they just sprayed some air freshener.  They are loaded with chemicals and can even be carcinogens. You want to stay away from plugins, cheap candles, and artificial fragranced air fresheners.

But having said that it is nice to smell good. To walk into the room and not have it smell like trash or diaper pail, that's where aromatherapy can help. More specifically, an aromatherapy diffuser can naturally scent the air

What is an Essential Oil Diffuser?

It is a machine that breaks apart essential oil into tiny little molecules that will fill the room with an incredible therapeutic aroma. This is one of the easiest ways to experience aromatherapy. You can find diffusers online starting around twenty dollars.

First, you find the diffuser basin and you're going to add water. Now some will say to use tap water, others will say to use distilled water. Just follow the instructions for your machine.

Once you've got your water in there, you add your essential oils. If you're new to oils, I would recommend starting with just a few drops. This is also a good idea if you have children nearby.

If you're more seasoned, you can use 5 drops and beyond. So it's really a personal thing to experiment to see what works for you. Once the drops are in, place the lid on. Plug your diffuser in, turn it on and voila you're diffusing essential oils.

Diffusing Doterra Essential Oils

There's actually a therapeutic quality to diffusing these oils and that's because when we smell these oils they can reach parts of our brain that no other sense can. It can help support your physical well-being, your emotional well-being, and even your spirituality. And of course, they can neutralize odor in a natural and safe way.

Some of those oils that I really love to diffuse are in the morning peppermint and lemon. These are just great wake me up oils, they help me start my day before my kids get up and they smell delicious together. I also love frankincense. This is great if I'm reflecting on the day or just relaxing in a bubble bath. Frankincense is calming and grounding. Myrrh and sandalwood are also wonderful oils for spirituality.

If I need a mood boost I love grapefruit. It's fresh clean and it just makes me feel happy. Orange is another great oil to try as well. At night to kind of calm the whole family down, I love to use lavender essential oil. Cedarwood is another great relaxing oil and when it comes to neutralizing nasty odors nothing works as well as lemongrass.

The oil blend options are endless, like this Welcome Home Diffuser Blend, and that's what I love about essential oils. There are so many different kinds. Try various essential oils and find the oils that really speak to you.
