MORE THAN JUST a fancy, vapour-producing contraption, essential oil diffusers offer a bevy of benefits that make them probably one of the most overlooked household items. Here are 7 reasons that make having one so essential:
1. Helps your body adapt to stress
Many essential oils such as lavender and clary sage are adaptogens, which means that they help your body to regulate stress levels by soothing you when you’re stressed and giving you a boost when you’re feeling lethargic. With their healing properties, they are able to treat hormonal imbalances, which means that you might not have to reach for that chocolate bar after all.
2. Elevates any mood
Scents affect our moods in greater ways than we realise. With just a few drops of essential oil from the plethora of options available, you can easily set the mood for any occasion – from alluring rose for a peaceful night in, to a warm sandalwood for a social gathering. All that’s left to do is to find the perfect diffuser that reflects your style, and we have a feeling we might be able to help.
3. Relax anywhere — in your car, office or at home
You might be aware of the benefits that essential oil has to offer, like its ability to soothe your body and salve your mind. But did you know that the diffuser is by far the easiest and most effective way of reaping its healthy goodness? Pop one in your car, office, or bedroom and you’ll be saying goodbye to long days and restless nights in no time.
4. Safer and healthier alternative to candles
One in three candles containing heavy metals, some emitting lead that poses health hazards to our bodies. Most candles also have artificial scents and dyes that release harmful chemicals when burnt, and are safety hazards especially with kids and pets at home. The solution? Diffusers. Need we say more?
5. Boosts productivity
There’s nothing worse than returning from a lunch break only to be greeted by an unrelenting food coma. The revitalizing aroma from essential oil diffusers gives you the perfect, natural kick that you need to face the day – and we’re speaking from experience. So the next time that you catch yourself (or your colleagues) snoozing, you know who – or what – to turn to.
6. Improves respiration
Essential oils like eucalyptus and peppermint have anti-inflammatory properties that make it a common prescription for unclogging congested airways. If you are prone to allergies or have other breathing disorders, you can consider diffusing essential oils in the rooms of your homes to facilitate better breathing.
7. Spruces up any space
