How to Make a Calming Essential Oil Recipe for Your Ultrasonic Diffuser Posted on 03 Sep 12:36
Are you looking for a new, safe way to freshen your home? A healthier way that doesn't use harsh chemicals or aerosol sprays? Essential oil diffusers are a popular, affordable choice to introduce a variety of wonderful scents into your home that you can easily tailor to fit your mood. Not only do they smell great, studies have shown that pure essential oils offer an array of health benefits including promoting sleep and reducing stress.
ESSENTIAL OILS VS. COMMERCIAL AIR FRESHENERS
Do you ever use aerosol sprays or plug-in devices to freshen your home? These products, even ones labeled "unscented" or "all natural", can contain phthalates, chemical ingredients linked to birth defects and hormonal imbalances. Commercial air fresheners also contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that include carcinogenic ingredients such as benzene and formaldehyde. Not only are these chemicals obviously dangerous to your health, they just aren't necessary to having a fresh-smelling home. That's where pure essential oils come in.
BENEFITS OF AROMATHERAPY
There are over 800 studies showing a variety of health benefits attributed to essential oil aromatherapy. Lavender can promote sound sleep while sandalwood produces a calming effect. Eucalyptus is great for respiratory health. A mix of chamomile, eucalyptus and peppermint is shown to relieve stress. Even menstrual symptoms can be alleviated by inhaling a mixture of cinnamon, rose, clove and lavender essential oils. There are over 90 pure essential oils available today, and each one offers its own unique health advantages. The good thing is that you can use them individually for a specific health effect, combine them to boost the health benefits, or just experiment with them to create your own favorite scent. You'll have fun making your own creations. The sky's the limit!
THE BENEFITS OF USING AN ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER
Several years ago when the benefits of essential oils started gaining attention, it was popular to heat essential oils in warmers to release their scents. Heating has now been shown to break down essential oil, making it less aromatic and diminishing its potency.
Healing Solutions offers dozens of premium essential oils for use with an ultrasonic diffuser that disperses calming, fresh scents throughout your home. The ultrasonic technology quietly and efficiently excites the oils to release delicious aromas without the loss of potency currently attributed to other types of diffusers. Simply fill the diffuser with water and add in a few drops of your favorite pure essential oils. The quiet, ultrasonic diffuser will moisten the air to help your cough and stuffy nose during a cold, or just help you relax for a good night's sleep.
