Although I still consider myself a “newbie”, essential oils have changed the way I do some things in my household. There is still a lot to learn, and honestly with oils I think I will be constantly learning. I do still use modern medicine, and haven’t completely gotten rid of my household cleaners – but I love diffusing oils for health benefits and to make my house smell heavenly! I’d love to share with you my favorite essential oils to diffuse.
Grapefruit, Lemon and Citrus Fresh: These are great for having your house smell clean and fresh. They are my favorite in the Summer months! I name them together, but I diffuse them separately. I’m sure they would be great together!
Cinnamon Bark: Yum. This one is great in the winter months – and I love it with Citrus Fresh. It makes my house smell and feel like home.
Stress Away: The name says it all. I love the way this smells and I often diffuse it while relaxing at night. It has hints of vanilla, lime and cedarwood.
Purification and Thieves: I diffuse these separately, but always when there is a bug in the house (not the crawly kind). They smell great too!
Christmas Spirit: Ahhh, Christmas in a bottle. With hints of orange, cinnamon bark and spruce it really does smell like the holidays. It’s a favorite!
Citronella: This one might sound odd – and I don’t diffuse indoors – but if we are bbq-ing or eating outside, I plug the diffuser in and set it on the outdoor table. I don’t know how the mosquitoes are here in Texas yet, but it worked like a charm in Illinois!
Do you use essential oils? Let me know how – like I said, I’m always learning new uses. What are your favorites to diffuse?
