Do You Know What is in Your Diffuser?
Ever get a gift or buy something to help your house smell good, then find out the fragrance is too strong and gives you a headache?
I have always had an issue with most store bought fragrances until I found essential oils. What I love about my oils is they are SO versatile and do not give me an issue like chemical fragrances do. I have had this reed diffuser sitting around our house for the past 3 years not sure what to do with it because the original oil that it came with gave me a really bad headache. So as I was cleaning our house this past weekend I saw it sitting out and decided I would just make my own oil concoction.
I love making my own because I know exactly what is going into my oil concoction, rather than not knowing what chemicals could be floating around in the air with store bought reed diffuser oils. I use Young Living Essential Oils and have chose them for their ‘Seed to Seal’ guarantee, which they stand by their oils from the time of harvest on their company owned farms to the time the bottles are sealed in their packaging facilities on their property.
There are a lot of great essential oil blends that you can make for the reed diffuser and depending on the time of year and what oils you have on hand. Since it is spring I decided to make a ‘Spring Time Blend,’ with Peppermint, Joy and Jade Lemon. Giving an uplifting ‘floral minty’ smell, which ours is in our entry way, so nothing better than entering the house to this smell. We had some of my husband’s coworkers over this weekend and lots of people remarked at how good it smelled in our house. Just a nice way to make your house a HOME, creating your own diffuser blends that are uplifting and pleasant AND no headache, which is a huge bonus for me!
