Essential oils have a wide range of uses. They can be used for natural remedies for skin, hair, mood, cleaning, healing, and various other life hacks. Adding essential oils to a diffuser fills your space with wonderful smells that will aid your mood and your physical health. In this blog post, I’m going to give you some of my favorite essential oil recipes for diffusers.
My Essential Oils & Diffuser Gave Me Life
My inspiration for this blog post comes from a very real place. Right now I have a cold and my main symptom is a very stuffy nose. As we all know, cold symptoms seem to get worst at night.
Two nights ago was the absolute worst.
I got home from a great dinner with co-workers and I was in a great mood. We visited one of my favorite seafood restaurants which happens to have the best pomegranate martinis. The meal was great and I had two of those awesome martinis. I got home around 9:30 pm and was instantly ready for bed. I never get to bed before 10 pm so this was a welcome treat.
Unfortunately, sleep was not in my future this night.
What earlier was just watery eyes and a little runny nose kicked into full gear. After about an hour of being home my nose was so stuffed up I had to breathe solely through my month. I literally felt like I was drowning.
I didn’t want to take any cold medicine because I had been drinking earlier in the night. I didn’t have any saline on hand which is something that I would give my daughter whenever she is stuffy. Let’s just say I had a very long night which did not include very much sleep. The little relief I did get came from propping myself up on pillows so that I wasn’t laying flat.
The next morning, it hit me that I had 6 essential oils and a diffuser that I purchased a few months back. I’m not a big fan of taking medicines especially if there is a natural remedy that works. I put together a few essential oils and added them to my diffuser and the rest is magic. I was breathing and able to get some rest in no time!
The very next night I slept in my office on my couch, right next to my diffuser. I slept like a baby.
I purchased my diffuser from Amazon. I am so addicted to Amazon Prime shopping that I check Amazon first for anything I want to buy online. Here is the exact diffuser that I purchased. It has a light that changes colors, automatic shut off, and it is cool mist.
My Essential Oils
I am not an essential oils expert by any means. I’ve only tried one brand of oils and I’ve like them so I haven’t switched. Give these a try or any other brand that suits your budget. I used Amazon reviews and price to make my choice.
