This Christmas, I was given a diffuser, and to say I’m obsessed is an extreme understatement. There is something about surrounding myself in a scent that centres me and allows me to rest that is truly amazing.
This Sunday I am recommending something a little more expensive, and a little more involved, but it is also something that I truly believe in. To me, a diffuser reminds me of the feeling of sitting in a scented bath, just without all the water. Because I love peppermint scented bath bombs, and I have a peppermint scented oil for my diffuser, the feeling are similar.
I tend to prefer the diffuser when I’m busy though, mostly because when I have a bath I’m doing it to totally shut down, and sometimes I just don’t have time to do that. The beauty of a diffuser is that I can get the feeling of soaking myself in a lovely and calming scent, while I’m studying, reading, or organizing my calendar.
When I turn My diffuser on it’s time for me to breath deeply while I’m doing something that involves me quietly sitting at my desk and working on things for myself.
I Throughly love this diffuser, the sleek design looks amazing in my bedroom and on my desk, but beyond that, it is so so relaxing. This has to do with both the way it diffuses essential oils as well as the adjustable LED light. The fact that I can change the light at will is a nice feature because I can adjust it to any mood, and I can adjust it to help me sleep.
The essential oil I love to use in my diffuser is the Ellia Peppermint Therapeutic Grade 15 ml. Essential Oil
I’m a sucker for anything peppermint, so it makes sense that I’m obsessed with this oil. But I also love it because it’s uplifting, and I feel like I’m surrounded in a cloud of comfort and happiness when my bedroom is filled with this scent.
If essential oils aren’t your thing, I know Saje has some wonderful blends.
If you don’t like the look of my specific diffuser, have no fear! Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, and even Walmart sells diffusers. They come in all sorts of sizes, colours, and price ranges. They’re accessible, and there’s really no reason to not at least look into it if you think a diffuser could work for you. I know this suggestion is a little more, but I promise I wouldn’t be suggesting it if I didn’t believe in it.
