If you’ve been keeping up to date with our recent blog posts, or our Pinterest page, you’ll already know how much we love essential oils! Essential oils can be used in many different ways, whether it’s through topical application or ingestion – but have you tried diffusing your essential oils?

Using a diffuser is a great way to experience the full benefits of essential oils throughout the entire home. A diffuser allows the essential oils to be dispersed throughout the household as a fine mist, and it’s completely safe to use around children too.

There are many different reasons why people choose to diffuse essential oils, whether it’s for a fragrant and enjoyable smell, or for a more targeted reason to assist with health and wellness. Whether you are run-down, tired, sick or stressed – using a diffuser means you can mix different oils together to create the perfect blend for any scenario.

People say they feel different within seconds of diffusing essential oils. One of the greatest benefits is that you only have to diffuse essential oils for 15 minutes for the effects to last for hours!

So what kind of essential oil blends should you be using throughout the home? You can diffuse any mix of essential oils you like, but here are a few ideas to get you started.
