As an aromatherapist, I KNOW, the importance of diffusing, and so do the majority of my followers. But what some essential oil diffusing fanatics, like me, need, is a new twist on diffusing.
Forget the mass social media mentality that oils "do something" for you, your body or your mind, and just diffuse because they smell amazing, are good for the environment, and it is FUN.
Essential Oils ARE NOT miracle workers, and DO NOT CURE diseases. But WHAT THEY DO, do, is smell amazing. Finding your own " diffuser blend style" is just part of the fun and innovative way to benefit from essential oils, all while not depleting these precious commodities, or your pocketbook. You don't need 65 essential oils, just your favorites!
Essential Oils come from the roots, stems, flowers, peels and branches of plants and flowers, so surely you have a favorite natural flower, or plant or tree, or blossom?
After you find your favorite aroma profile's, diffuse diffuse diffuse! Do not be afraid to blend oils, AND make sure you are diffusing, that is all that matters, to me.
Any oil is better than NO oil any time of the day! A general rule of thumb is no more than 10 drops of oil TOTAL in your diffuser at any time.
I always suggest using only 3-4 oils, but you can always use as many as you want. I just try to keep usage to a minimum to prevent the aroma being to overwhelming! I tend to gravitate toward a citrus, mint and earth aroma.
You will soon find your favorites, and be blending away! Most importantly HAVE FUN. Diffusing is not for just when you are not feeling well, have the blues or need to sleep, diffusing essential oils evoke memories through aroma and remembering happy times or associating aroma with a lost relative's kitchen aroma, or a friends favorite fragrance or even a memory you forgot until you "smelled" your blend, are all happy and positive vibes right?
Below are some of my FAVORITE BLENDS! They don't "DO" anything specific, there are health and emotional benefits with ALL oils and the science is backing this up, but I diffuse these just because love the way the smell, and they make me happy! I diffuse these blends at home, in my store AND in my office. I am a diffusing fool, and I LOVE IT!
So Enjoy, and DIFFUSE ALL DAY LONG if you want, there is no "essential oil rule book", and to be Frank, (haha) you can diffuse anytime, anywhere, any how you choose, it is up to you.
