The Benefits of a Diffuser

Have you ever been to a spa or beauty parlour and been hit by that unreal distinct 'spa smell' as you walked in? Chances are it will be an oil diffuser! But did you know that not only are they a pleasure to smell but they actually have other health benefits too? 

Oil diffusers work by heating oil and water turning it into a fine mist which spreads around the room. Unlike candles, diffusers release cleansing molecules into the air that work to purify it whilst also adding moisture to the air.

Another bonus of an oil diffuser is that you can switch up the smell by using different oils. Choose a scent which reminds you of that amazing holiday to Thailand by adding lemongrass or if you're suffering from a Winter cold why not add eucalyptus which helps clear the airways?

There are endless oils available on both the high street and online markets, each of which attributes different benefits. Some of my favourites include:

  • Lavender - eases stress, relaxes and promotes sleep 
  • Grapefruit - energises, boosts mood 
  • Rose - reduces anxiety 
  • Ylang Ylang - beneficial for high blood pressure
  • Cedarwood - soothing and calming 
  • Eucalyptus - natural insect repellant, decongestant

    Alternative medicine enthusiasts have turned to essential oils for years and I can see why! With such busy lives, we're all looking for low maintenance self-care options and this is definitely an easy one to add to your daily routine! 

    Tip - don't have any essential oils in stock? Add a drop of your favourite Zoflora instead for a cost-effective alternative!
