Diffusing essential oils

One of my favorite ways to use my essential oils is to diffuse them throughout our home. We have a few diffusers, all of which are ultrasonic. This is important, because heating the oils will damage them, making them less therapeutic (though they will still smell good). Young Living has many wonderful diffuser options, even a few specially designed for children’s spaces!

When you diffuse pure essential oils, you are actively improving the air quality of your home (or office, car…wherever). You may not be aware, but those candles, sprays, plug-in scents, and melted wax that are so popular are dangerous to your health. Please also consider your children, pets, and guests. There are numerous articles on PubMed about phthalates and the research surrounding them. Not to mention VOCs, and even lead in candle emissions. There are alternatives to these products, and they are cost-effective. Just a few drops of oil in your diffuser will last hours, and you only need a drop at a time on diffuser jewelry (necklace, bracelet, earrings…there are so many styles available, you’ll be sure to find something that suits you if you search). Essential oils are powerful, so a little goes a long way.

This Testimony Tuesday, I’ll share a few tidbits instead of one bigger anecdote. I nearly always diffuse Purification after I cook things that have a strong smell. This blend really freshens the place up! When I need to unwind, I love to diffuse Stress Away or Lavender. I find the scent of R.C. very refreshing, and this blend is beneficial for the respiratory system. During meditation or prayer, Frankincense is a beautiful oil to diffuse, not to mention this is one of my all-time favorite oils. And last, but certainly not least, Thieves is what I diffuse whenever there is illness going around…I want to support my family’s immune system so we can all remain happy and well!

What do these oils all have in common? They’re in the Premium Starter Kit. And for the month of August, anyone who enrolls as a new member will also receive a free 15ml bottle of Cedarwood from Young Living! This is such a great bonus to an already wonderful value. I love to diffuse Lavender and Cedarwood at bedtime. I would also like to offer a free diffuser necklace to anyone who becomes a member of my team this month!
