Essential oils are all the rage these days and for a good reason! With everyday stress on the rise, I got 99 problems, but essential oils ain’t one. I recently got a diffuser from Thursday Plantation, and I feel like essential oils have helped solve most of my problems. From helping with my sleep patterns to giving me the mental clarity I need, to even transforming our home into the airy sanctuary I always dreamed of. If you are not using a diffuser at home then you need to start asap!
My top 4 benefits of using an essential oil diffuser at home:
Your Home Smells and Feels Lovely
Whatever is going on in your life, your home should be your sanctuary. I always call it our “safe space”. But, it didn’t 100% feel like it. Since we started using essential oils, as soon as I walk in through the door, our home smells divine and feels much more welcoming. Especially after working a long day at the office, our apartment has become our little sanctuary of relieving stress and feeling tranquil. Unlike other air fresheners, the Thursday Plantation essential oils I use have a 100% pure, natural oils fragrances and free of chemicals, so we usually leave our diffuser on all day. Lavender essential oil is our go to.
Promotes Better Sleep
I have a very hard time falling asleep at night. Ever since I started using the essential oils diffuser, my sleeping patters are more stable. When you diffuse essential oils the mist produces a long lasting effect to help continuous sleep throughout the night. I move the essential oil diffuser in our bedroom 30 minutes before I go to bed, and I close the door to create a sauna like effect. This has drastically improved my sleep cycles, and the scent of the lavender essential oil has a calming effect on both body and mind.
You also need an essential oil diffuser at home because essential oils have powerful anti-microbial that can help kill germs lurking in your home. By diffusing the oils into the air, you can kill off airborne germs before you get sick, and also help to boost your immunity. Essential oils like eucalyptus, sweet orange, and peppermint work by stimulating the production of white blood cells which boost the immune system. I love using the peppermint an eucalyptus essential oils for this reason, especially now that fall is on its way, and so is flu season.
Boosts Your Mood and Mental Focus
I get distracted or lose focus very easily when I work at home. To enhance my focus and stay on track while being in a great mood, I turn to my diffuser! A much healthier alternative than coffee to keeping my energy levels up, and getting my work done. Especially when I feel stressed with deadlines, the Thursday Plantation peppermint essential oil is the perfect solution to keeping my stress levels low.
My Favourite Essential Oil Diffuser
Essential oils have a variety of therapeutic qualities, many more than the ones I described above, which is why I highly recommend you incorporate essential oils and especially a diffuser into your daily life. I love using the Thursday Plantation Bamboo Diffuser to create an aromatic and calming atmosphere in our home. Both Kam and I are obsessed.
Here’s what I love about it
- Diffuses a cool mist
- It’s super easy to use. Simply add tap water and essential oils to the diffuser, use the touch controls on the front to start the color cycle, pause on any color you wan to set.
- Colour-changing LED light illuminates the water with 7 soothing colours to choose from depending on your mood: pink, yellow, blue, green, red, yellow and clear.
- The top half of the diffuser is made of frosted plastic that emits a lovely ambient color, making the space feels like a spa.
- Time Feature allows you to set the diffuser to run for continuous, 1 hour, 2 hours or a 10 second interval.
- The diffuser automatically shuts off when the water level becomes too low.
- It operates quietly, and you won’t even know it is on, except from smelling the lovely scents.
