When using a diffuser, look for a unit that does not use heat to emit aroma. Heating essential oils can alter their delicate and intricate chemistry so opt for a cold air diffuser instead. Simply placing a drop of your favorite calming oil in the palm of your hand and inhaling before entering a stressful situation like a doctors appointment or an interview can be very helpful in maintaining feelings of calm and peace. Our talented therapists enjoy using a wide array of essential oils during their healing sessions. Just walking into a room filled with a mellow blend of essential oils like Lavender or Vetiver can bring the client from a place of extroversion to a place of stillness and introspection. Our sense of smell is linked up with so much more than previously thought and diffusing essential oils is a great way to boost the mood, improve sleep and maintain a healthy and happy household. If you have any questions about diffusers, please don’t hesitate to ask! Be well.
