|Whether you're a parent gearing up to take your children out trick-or-treating, a young person deciding on the spookiest costume to dress up in, or just someone who loves Halloween, these diffuser blends will help you get into the mood for the spookiest holiday of the year.
New to essential oils and wondering what the fuss is all about? Let me explain! Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds and products from the seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark and other parts of the plants that may calm the senses, lift one's mood and even purify the air.
Essential oils have also been used in many cultures and throughout history for medicinal and therapeutic purposes, including cleansing, detoxifying, as dietary supplements and even as natural remedies to various health issues.
Using a water diffuser with essential oils is one of the easiest ways to enjoy the aroma and health benefits found through essential oils. In this post we will briefly discuss how to use a diffuser and blends to use for Halloween when you're all set up, as well as how to buy essential oils whether you're brand new to essential oils or need to add more to your collection.
Using a Diffuser
Using a diffuser with essential oils can be a lot of fun and an easy way to practice aromatherapy in your home, car or even on-the-go. Here is some advice on how to get started with a diffuser:
1. Choose a diffuser for your space.
There are lots of options to chose from and there are a few things to keep in mind before finding the perfect diffuser for you space. First, consider the size of room you are going to be using it in. If it's quite a large space, you may want to opt for a 300mL or larger in order to fill the room with the right amount of aroma. There are also portable options for you car or laptop and smaller ones if you prefer.
2. Fill with water.
Once you have your diffuser set up and ready to go, make sure you read the instructions. Every diffuser is different so it's important to know the safety precautions with your particular device. Once you have finished reading, fill the diffuser to the line indicated inside ensuring not to overfill.
3. Add essential oils.
To begin with you may want to experiment with single oils such as lavender, lemon or peppermint. This will help give you a feel for how essential oils can positively improve your mood or help you to relax. Add 1-6 drops depending on the strength of the essential oil and your preference (I suggest starting with a few drops, you can always add more to make it stronger).
Tip: You can buy pre-made blends such as Breath (Easy Air) or Serenity, but you can always create your own like the Halloween-inspired ones coming up!
4. Turn on your diffuser.
Depending on your diffuser you may be able to set it for a certain amount of time, or change the mode or feature. Try out different modes and find what works best for you. Now you can sit back and enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy!
