I'm sure many of you have come across a variety of aromatherapy diffusers and essential oils recently. If you know your stuff, this post may just be a reminder of how great an aromatherapy diffuser can be. If you’re new to aromatherapy, you’re in for a treat.
Essential oils have been around for thousands of years and the benefits are endless. Spreading this goodness into the air is essentially what an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser does. It disperses the essential oils via small molecules into the air so that we can inhale the lovely scent while also reaping the benefits. Here are 10 reasons why every home should have an essential oil diffuser:
1. Elevates mood
Essential oils are well known for its mood elevating effects and is used by many to elevate mood across the globe. In today's society, stress and anxiety have become very common. After a hard day at work, using an Essential Oil Diffuser is a perfect way to unwind and relax. Not only is it good for good vibes, but it also offers a great scent too! You will definitely feel a difference.
2. Provides better sleep
With the busy lifestyles we all have, sometimes it becomes quite difficult to sleep. A diffuser can easily help you feel calm and relaxed, helping to provide you a better night's sleep. Essential oils such as Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and Chamomile are popular for this reason. Lavender essential oils can also be added within pillows to help promote sleep.
3. Helps improve your immunity
Almost all quality essential oils have antibacterial and antioxidant properties, which make them perfect against any germs you may have lurking in your home. Diffusing essential oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree and lemon can greatly benefit your health by reducing your risk of getting a cold or the flu.
4. Helps you breathe easier
Essential oils are a great solution to help reduce clogged and congested airways and help you breathe more comfortably. People with allergies or breathing problems will tend to find it easier to breathe when essential oils are diffused into the air. Essential oils that would be beneficial in this case would be Peppermint, Lemon and Eucalyptus.
5. Keeps your home or office cool and comfortable
Whether you like staying at home or tend to spend long hours at work, an essential oil diffuser will provide you a cool and comfortable atmosphere. This is especially relaxing during the summer and during the night.
6. Safer than candles and incense
If you have children, pets or a busy household/office, candles and incense can be potentially hazardous. With an essential oil diffuser, you are able to enjoy your favourite scent plus the medicinal properties that come with it too! Essential Oil Diffusers are very safe products.

7. Insect repellent
Essential Oils are a great insect repellent for any home or office. Whether it is flies, mosquitoes or moths, essentials oils seem to do the trick. Insects particularly despise rosemary, lemongrass, clove and peppermint, and are the essential oils to go for in this situation.
8. Improves focus
Many essential oils have adaptogenic properties that help to soothe and calm the mind which will help with better focus and decision making when feeling down, stressed or sluggish. There are also several oils that help to balance hormones which will benefit both your mind and body.
9. Pain relief
Diffusing essential oils can help to relieve any aches or pain. This is more effective when directly applied to skin (essential oils + carrier oil). D:FUSE will soon be launching a new roll-on line that will make it easier to help relieve aches and pains.

With all the benefits discussed above, using essential oils could actually help you save money in the long run.

Using this handy and versatile device, you could save you and your family from less doctor visits, and give you the energy you need throughout your day!
Please note when using any essential oils:
Keep out of reach of children. Any essential oil may cause skin sensitivity. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician first. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas. Happy diffusing!
