The MANY Benefits of Diffusing Essential Oils

Home DiffuserDid you know that diffusing Young Living Essential Oils is one of the best ways to experience their benefits? A good diffuser puts tiny oil droplets out into the air. Once they are in the air, you breathe them, they go into your lungs, and then quickly get into your bloodstream. This is so fabulous when you need their therapeutic benefits to start working extra fast! There are so many good things that come from inhaling certain oils, and having a diffuser makes that so much easier than walking around with an open bottle, sniffing it all day 🙂

Diffusing is especially great when you are wanting to give your body continuous support. Depending on the run-time of your diffuser (usually several hours), you’re getting those oils in your body, on-going, over a pretty significant time-period. I also use oils topically and internally in conjunction with diffusing. But one of the great things I LOVE about a diffuser is that I can just set it to go, and then reap all kinds of benefits without even having to think about it again for a few hours!

Inhaling citrus oils has been shown to support the immune system, help with relaxation, and even help you concentrate on tasks better. Inhaling peppermint oil can also help boost attention and focus. When I’m really wanting some major immune support, I diffuse Thieves blend. It’s a fabulous oil for that, and smells so good! Diffusing is a great way to get oils into your body while sleeping. Many people diffuse oils in their bedrooms to help them relax and promote a good night’s sleep.

Diffusing can be a great way to clean and purify the air in your home, and certain oils can make your home smell amazing, without the toxins and chemicals that are in candles, air fresheners and even Scentsy (sorry, but those Scentsy bars are full of toxins!) There are some great smelling oils that also have fantastic therapeutic benefits, so you get to enjoy the wonderful scent and boost your health at the same time–now that’s better than Scentsy! Citrus oils smell delicious and clean, and as mentioned above, are great for lifting your mood and helping you focus and concentrate. There also are numerous mood-enhancing oils like Joy, Stress Away, Peace and Calming, and Valor to name just a few. These not only have a pleasing aroma, but they can lift your spirits, lower your stress level, and even calm rowdy kids!

WhisperI LOVE my diffusers. I have two Young Living Home Diffusers – one that stays in my living room, and one that diffuses R.C. every night in my son’s room. I also have a Whisper from Abundant Health that runs every night in my bedroom, usually diffusing lavender oil. The brand doesn’t matter when you’re shopping for a diffuser. The most important thing is that you make sure to get a COOL mist diffuser. You never want to heat essential oils because it destroys some of their therapeutic benefits. Other than that, you just want to look at the features, and make sure they are what you want (run-time, lights that turn off, etc.) I have heard many great things about the H2EO diffuser (affiliate link) and the Rainbow (affiliate link), and the Whisper Premium I have from Abundant Health is also top notch. I love how quiet it is, and that you can turn off ALL the lights on it to keep your bedroom dark. The Young Living Home Diffuser can be purchased by itself from Young Living, or in the Premium Starter Kit that you can select when you sign up for a Wholesale Membership with Young Living.

Now, let me be clear: I ONLY diffuse Young Living Essential Oils. If I am breathing stuff that is going into my lungs and directly into my bloodstream, I am taking NO chances that what I am using is adulterated by any chemicals or extraneous fillers (as store-bought and cheaper oil brands are—that’s why they are cheaper, folks!) I have asthma anyway, so I am extremely sensitive to those things. But even if I had the healthiest lungs on the planet, I am still not interested in putting MORE garbage into my bloodstream to tax my body and my liver. There is enough air pollution in and out of my home that I cannot control. I am certainly not going to knowingly and purposefully add to that. Young Living is the only brand I trust for their quality and purity to put on or in me and my family.

If you haven’t tried Young Living Essential Oils, you are missing out! There are so many uses, and so many benefits! I encourage you to take a look. You can order oils HERE, and I would really encourage you to take a look at the Wholesale Membership option. It’s SO much more beneficial than just buying retail. The Premium Starter Kit is available with a wholesale membership, and it has the diffuser I mentioned plus 11 oils, many of which I talked about in this post. As always, I’m here to answer any questions you may have! Contact me anytime!
