Did you know that when you inhale essential oils (or any aroma for that matter), the aroma immediately goes to the part of your brain that deals with emotions and mood? That’s why aromatherapy is one of the most powerful and delightful ways we can use our oils. I love that no matter what I’m feeling at any given moment, I know there’s an oil out there that can help. Whether you’re feeling bored, uninspired, angry, sad, or even just in a “funk”, essential oils can come to the rescue.
I recommend that every single person get a diffuser. Personally, it’s one of my favorite ways to use my oils throughout the day. Plus, it’ll make you house or workspace smell amazing! My personal favorite diffusers for living or work spaces are the Lotus Diffuser and the Petal Diffuser. I find that they are able to fill up an office, kitchen, living room, or meeting space with the aroma of essential oils perfectly!
Simply add the essential oils blend to your diffuser or add a drop to your palms, rub together, and inhale for immediate support.
