I get asked many times how people can take advantage of aromatherapy and essential oils, but they don’t have a diffuser or are not allowed to use a diffuser where they work or study. Using a diffuser is not the only way to get the benefits of using essential oils. There are multiple ways to use aromatherapy as part of your daily life so I am going to go over these with you.
Plug In Diffuser
Plug in diffusers are a popular choice to use with essential oils while you are at home. It consists of a housing unit where you put a specific amount of water, and sometimes an additional piece to put drops of essential oils onto. If it doesn’t, than drop the oils directly I to the water. Diffusers break down the essential oils into tiny particles and disperse them into the air so you breathe in the benefits. Some diffusers can run up to 8 hours continuously and can have on/off timer settings. There are also ones that have multiple color changing lights so it can be used as a night light.
Diffuser jewelry can be necklaces, bracelets, earrings, keychain, etc… They consist of an absorbent material to put drops of essential oils onto so you can have the benefits wherever you go. Most necklaces are either a locket style with a felt pad inside which holds the essential oil, or terracotta clay pendants which absorb the oil also. Bracelets and other jewelry items usually consist of terracotta clay beads or lava rock beads, which are also absorbent and stylish.
Many people make batches of Epsom salts with essential oils in them and other beneficial oils such as coconut oil or olive oil. This is a great way to relax and take a hot bath and ease sore muscles. Baths is also a popular way of doing spiritual aromatherapy.
Body Butters / Lotions / Creams / Salves / Balms
There are many DIY people making everyday body care products using essential oils as an easier way for application. You are indulging your skin with moisture as well as getting benefits from the essential oils. It is also an easier way to travel with essential oils being more portable in this form.
Car Air Freshener
Sometimes you need a boost or pick-me-up while in the car or traveling long distances. A great way to do this is attach some ribbon to a clothes pin and clip it onto the air conditioning vents. The air will run across the ribbon and act like a diffuser in the car. There are also specific diffusers that are designed to plug into your car. Have an odor in your car? Make your own febreeze and spray down the seats and floors!
I hope these give you more options and ideas on how you can get the benefits of using your essential oils no matter where you are!
