Vanilla sugar air freshener, coconut lime room spray, citrus-scented candles.They smell delightful. But, did you know that most conventional personal care and household products are scented with synthetic, chemical-based fragrances? If you’re looking to make your home a little greener, and a little more considerate of your health and wellness, consider swapping artificial scents for plant-based scents or organic essential oils in a diffuser.
Essential oils are what give flowers, herbs, and trees their natural scent. These oils can be added to a diffuser which converts the water and oil blend into a vapor, and disperses it throughout the air, and around the room. Using an essential oil diffuser to naturally scent your home is a green and clean way to enjoy the scents you love! Discover five reasons why you need an essential oil diffuser in your life.
1. Fresh Air
While store-bought air fresheners are typically filled with artificial, chemically-concocted scents, essential oils provide a natural, and surprisingly potent aroma. When you’re expecting some company, choose a refreshing scent and with a simple click of a button, your diffuser can turn your home into a delightful aromatic experience. But, be warned: your guest may not want to leave!
2. Neutralize the Threat
Cooking, garbage that’s been sitting, even our kids and pets can contribute to household odors. Diffusing essential oils can fill your home with a pop of freshness, masking any foul odors that may be lingering.
3. Cleaner than Candles
We love the calm ambiance that scented candles can bring to our homes. Unfortunately, a lot of scented candles use synthetic fragrances and dyes that can release harmful chemicals into the air. If you still crave the pleasant ambiance and aroma of scented candles, essential oils can be a safer way to go.
4. Private Retreat
Diffusing oils can help create a stress-free home environment. Who doesn’t want to relax and decompress after a long day? Make any room in your home a safe haven with a diffuser and your favorite essential oil.
5. A Simple Way to Set the Mood
There’s a reason it’s known as “aromatherapy”. Scents and fragrances are a powerful way to evoke feelings, emotions, and memories. With hundreds of essential oils to choose from, you can use them in endless combinations to create the perfect environment to suit your mood, your state of mind, or whatever you find yourself doing from one day to the next.
When your home is a clean and fresh space, simply being there can help you decompress after a hectic day. What other steps can you take to make your home a feel-good space?
