For as long as we’ve been interested in natural living, we’ve heard recommendations on how oil diffusers are God’s gift to humans. People recommended it here and there for different reasons, to the point where it actually made us wonder: is there anything that these devices can’t do?
The list of benefits is actually really long, but we managed to narrow it down to five of the most important ones. Here’s why you need to get your hands on an essential oil diffuser.
- They Help You Relax and Sleep Better
We all know how some essential oils can do magic to our senses at the end of a hard day. But while there are many ways of introducing that oil from the bottle and into your skin – and eventually, the bloodstream – using essential oil diffusers is certainly the easiest and most efficient one. You won’t have to use as much oil as you would for a massage, and you can use it pretty much anywhere – regardless if you’re in your bedroom or in your office.
- They help you breathe easier
A lot of people have allergy and breathing issues due to excessively dry air, which is why an essential oil diffuser might help you reduce the inflammation. Try adding some peppermint, lemon, rosemary, or eucalyptus essential oil into the diffuser and let it work its magic.
- They help relieve the pain
When you use essential oils directly on your body to alleviate the pain, it will only work for the moment. However, if you use a diffuser, the effects will be extended and the pain will be kept away for a longer time. It is a very efficient way of keeping persistent pain away, like headaches, sore muscles or painful joints.
- They’re great insect repellents
This one is probably a benefit you haven’t heard that often. It’s true, though; if you use essential oils charged with the right “fuel,” you can keep insects such as house flies, mosquitoes, moths and fruit flies away. All you will need is an essential oil diffuser and some lemongrass, close, rosemary, or cedarwood oil.
- It improves your cognitive function
This one is perfect for students with a lot of studying to do (especially those cramming an entire semester into one evening). Essential oil diffusers are perfect for supercharging the brain cells and balancing the hormones of your body.
Keep in mind that in order for this to work, you’ll have to pick oils with adaptogenic abilities. These are not only highly soothing when you are stressed, but they can also provide a kick to the brain when you are feeling sluggish. They will level your mood and will, therefore, help you focus better on your tasks.
Essential oil diffusers are very convenient to have around. They make you healthier, smarter, keep the air clean, and overall give you a better mood for the day. Just make sure to stock up with the right essential oils, because the device will do the rest.
