To Diffuse Or Not To Diffuse?

As many of you already know, I am a big fan of essential oils. One of the easiest ways that you can start using essential oils is by diffusing them in your home. I truly believe that every home should have an essential oil diffuser! Diffusing essential oils is a powerful way to get all the benefits of the essential oil, especially for the mind and spirit!

When I say essential oils I am referring to Young Living Essential oils because I have done my research and know the quality. The quality of essential oils is really important so please don’t go run to the store and buy an essential oil off the shelf and think that you will get the same health benefits that I am talking about. In fact, those might do you more harm to your health than good and be somewhat toxic.

Disease occurs when the body’s vibrational frequency drops below a certain point. Therapeutic grade essential oils can raise the body’s frequency because they vibrate at a high frequency and transfer the frequency to our bodies. This is especially helpful when dealing with negative emotions, which are stored at a cellular level in specific organs in the body. It is possible to get bogged down by our emotions and feel trapped in an emotional rut, but essential oils can help us clear those stagnant emotional blocks and patterns by accessing them at their deepest level and releasing them.

Clearing Emotional Baggage

The limbic system plays a major role in controlling mood, memory, behaviors and emotions and is strongly linked to scent. Smell accesses the limbic system of the brain and clearly plays an important role in our psychological makeup.

Have you ever noticed how smells, like cookies baking, can send you back to a childhood memory and all the feelings associated with your favorite grandmother? Essential oils have a lot of these mood changes already built in their structure. Sesquiterpenes, found in high levels of essential oils such as Frankincense and Cedarwood, help to increase the oxygen in the limbic system of the brain which in turn “unlocks” the DNA and allows emotional baggage to be released from cellular memory.

The best way to diffuse essential oils is to use a cool mist or ultrasonic diffuser. This method distributes the molecules into the air effectively and can have an effect that lasts for hours. Diffusing essential oils can be a natural way for emotional support and cleansing, which helps:

  • Promote clarity and awareness – clear thinking
  • Clear emotional patterns
  • Elevate or uplift your mood
  • Reduce stress by soothing the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Promote feelings of motivation
  • Promote feelings of confidence

Other Reasons To Diffuse

There are lots of reasons to diffuse essential oils that are not mood based! Best of all, you can have the peace of mind that Young Living essential oils are completely natural and chemical free – no toxins to worry about wherever you use them. Here are just a few reasons to diffuse:

  • Remove nasty odors/purify the air – a much safer alternative to candles and/or synthetic air fresheners
  • Entertain guests – set the mood for a dinner party or gathering, or for some “adult fun” time
  • Enjoy better sleep – create a relaxing, inviting area to sleep in
  • Promote mental energy and clarity – contributes to a relaxed but high functioning work environment
  • Digestive support – can help to reduce food cravings or appetite
  • Provide comfort to children and pets – help them cope with stressors such as fireworks, visitors and new environments
  • Help support a healthy immune system – keep your immune system functioning at peak performance
  • Strengthen a weakened immune or respiratory system – provides relief and support to systems that are not functioning well
  • Improve memory recall – helpful when taking a test or preparing for a presentation
  • Promote quiet time and relaxation – recharge your mental batteries
  • Find motivation to clean or work – get those projects done that you’ve been putting off
  • Promote a healthy home, office and barn
  • And a lot more!!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Diffusing certain essential oils makes me feel poorly. Is this normal?
It depends. Are you using regular, store-bought products? The synthetic chemicals contained in many brands frequently can cause side effects. I recommend switching to a high-quality natural version. If you are using a high-quality version, but you are still experiencing unpleasant effects, you may simply just be using too much. Try reducing the amount you use in your diffuser or diffusing for less time to see if that improves the situation.

Is diffusing essential oils dangerous for my pets?
Nope, I diffuse around my dog every day. Again, however, it is important to use high-quality essential oils because the synthetic varieties are poorly tolerated by animals, especially cats, and smaller house pets. Animals have a much better sense of smell than humans, so be respectful of them and remember that less is more. You should never lock your pet in a closed room with a diffuser running – always make sure your pet has a way of escape.

Where can I get a diffuser?
The cool-mist diffusers that I buy and recommend are from Young Living, but there are other options out there.  The length of time a diffuser can function and how much area it will cover depends on the specific model. See a comparison of Young Living diffusers. The most important thing to remember is that you should not heat essential oils. Real, therapeutic grade essential oils are delicate and full of life energy, so when you heat them, you actually destroy what makes them special.

What is an ultrasonic diffuser?
Ultrasonic diffusion is amazing because it combines the advantages of a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy diffuser into one. Young Living has several varieties of this diffuser type, including the Aria, Rainstone and more. .
