Essential oils diffuser is a tool to distribute essential oils into the air creating positive effects on the entire body. Diffusing is an effective method to address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues.
Emotions are often said to be the root cause of many physical illnesses.
When you breath oil molecules in from the essential oils diffuser, your amygdala is activated. The amygdala is located in the brain and it manages your emotions and memories.
Have you ever smelled a scent in the air and had it bring back a memory? Whenever I smell pumpkin pie, it brings up memories of Thanksgiving and time spent with my family when I was younger.
More than any other sense, our sense of smell has the ability to change our mood, bring back memories and ease tension.

Need an Essential Oils Diffuser?
If you do not have an essential oil diffuser than I highly suggest you purchase one. This is a really great investment for your overall wellness. A diffuser will cost between $20-$100 depending on style.
The most popular type of diffuser to use with essential oils is an ultrasonic diffuser (aka humidifying diffuser). They take water to run. You can read our post on nebulizing diffusers to learn about all the different types of diffusers available.
You can find a good model for about $20-30, here are two that I have used and have had good result with, click the pictures to learn more:

There are many possibilities for what essential oils to diffuser. For a simple diffuser blend, pick a single oil.
- Lavender or Chamomile are excellent oils for before bedtime.
- Lemon or Lemongrass are perfect for freshen a room or eliminate odors.
- Peppermint or Spearmint if you are looking for minty freshness.
