The use of natural essential oils stimulates potent mental, emotional and physiological responses. The aroma of the essential oil stimulates a reaction in the brain but also when the oil is inhaled into the body, the natural chemicals in the oil supply great therapeutic benefits. For example, diffusing eucalyptus is a very effective way to help ease congestion and inhaling peppermint oil improves energy.

When you breathe in the aroma of any essential oil, that is called “direct inhalation“. There are several methods of direct inhalation:

  1. Open a bottle of essential oil and breathe in the fragrance.
  2. Put a couple of drops of essential oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, make a cup with your hands around your nose and mouth and breathe in the aroma. Remember, some essential oils require a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil to dilute the concentration or prevent irritation to the skin.)
  3. Put a drop or two of oil or a blend of two or more oils on a tissue, hold it close to the face and  breathe in the scent.

Another widely used method of aromatherapy is diffusing the essential oils in a room. A diffuser causes the essential oil to evaporate into the surrounding room. Diffusing oils can change your mood by relaxing or stimulating the mind. Diffusers are also used to kill airborne germs and ease respiratory issues. Here are several ways to diffuse essential oils:

  1. Add a blend of lemon, clove, orange, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils to a diffuser to cleanse the air.
  2. Add peppermint oil to a diffuser to improve energy.
  3. Add lavender or chamomile oil to a diffuser to reduce stress, ease a headache or just to relax.

Calming Essential Oils

Author: Dr. Larita

The first time I went to the dentist might possibly have been my last if I didn’t inherit bad teeth like most of the women in my mother’s family. This was quite some time ago, in the late 1960s. I just wanted to find out why my mouth was hurting so but the dentist put his hands in my mouth (without gloves) and pronounced my tooth needed to come out. I didn’t want that to happen because his fingernails were dirty. He didn’t know I was about to vomit on him. He pulled my tooth anyway – and I was hysterical for days.

Thankfully, dentist offices have come a long way and I’m sure nothing like that happens today. I still don’t like going to the dentist but I asked my dentist to try using an essential oil diffuser, at least when I come in and he did! Now his office diffuses essential oils in the waiting room and dental rooms and they tell me it definitely seems to affect anxious client’s mood and helps them to feel calm and relaxed.

The best essential oils to use for apprehensive anxiety such as you feel in the dental chair are bergamot, lavender, neroli, rose otto, geranium, cedarwood, patchouli and sweet orange. Try it at home before you even go to the dentist. Make an apprehensive anxiety blend of:

  • 15 drops bergamot
  • 5 drops lavender
  • 10 drops geranium

Blend the oils in an amber colored bottle and add 8-10 drops of the blend to the water in your diffuser. It’s best to close off the room you’re in if possible or stand close and sniff the molecules. Do this 10 -15 minutes before you leave for the dentist or wherever you need to go that has you apprehensive.

aromatherapybathSage has been considered a sacred herb and a cure for many ailments for hundreds of years. It eventually found its way into the kitchen as a flavoring for meats and other dishes. As an aromatic, sage has a wide variety of therapeutic uses on a continuum from promoting respiratory health to strengthening memory.

Sage is used extensively in perfumes and colognes, especially in men’s fragrances. It can also be found in soaps, antiperspirants, detergents, mouthwashes, gargles and toothpastes. To top it all off, sage is also a source of natural antioxidants but ingesting it by mouth is discouraged. Even though you should not drink sage essential oil, there are many therapeutic uses for it.

Using a diffuser is an excellent way to disperse essential oils into the air. Diffusers emit a fine mist of essential oil micro-particles that purify and revitalize the air in a room. There are many different kinds of these devices available but my favorite is the electric diffuser  closely followed by the kind that uses a tea light candle to diffuse the oil. The essential oils you use in your diffuser are determined by the outcome you want to achieve. Below are lists of essential oils you can use for the purpose stated. You can use one of the oils in the list or experiment with a blend of oils from the same list.

To breath more easily choose from clove, eucalyptus, juniper berries, lavender, peppermint, pine, spearmint, or tea tree. To disinfect a room choose bergamot, cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, lavender, pine, rosemary,sate, tea tree or thyme. To energize a room use eucalyptus, lemon, lime, peppermint, pine or spearmint. For a stress-free atmosphere, use chamomile, geranium, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, mandarin, neroli, orange or petitgrain.

Give your home a relaxing upgrade with oil diffusers. Diffusers are a great way to make your house smell wonderful while helping you feel relaxed. They work by diffusing essential oils, sending a small amount of humidity into the air and filling your abode with the stress-releasing scent of your choice.

Diffusers are available in different types and are made using different materials. Each one with an assortment of features and unique designs. Ultrasonic diffusers are among the more popular ones in the market. Expert reviews lean in its favor for burning oils and producing vapor without utilizing heat, but by vibrating the water instead. Another advantage is that this type of essential oil diffuser do not use as much water as humidifiers do. Ultrasonic diffusers also allow you to drop more than just one type of essential oil, meaning you can create your own blend as desired. Additionally, diffusers are safer to use than scented candles.

There’s no greater feeling than coming home to the aromatic scent of lavender, rosemary, or eucalyptus. Use your diffusers to fill your home with a relaxing ambiance that’s proven to be beneficial to one’s health. Certain oils and their scents are proven to relieve stress and pain, stabilize your mood, and even repel insects.

Aromatherapy diffusers offer many benefits for your health, your sleep, your stress, and your overall well-being. They are a nice choice whether you are looking to get better sleep at night or to create an office atmosphere that is soothing and relaxing. I have enjoyed using a good diffuser for helping me to wind down at night and get into a blissful state of mind.

My diffuser adds to the décor of my home and it is a cute little way for me to have a relaxing atmosphere in my bedroom! I tend to be very wound up at night and full of energy. Sometimes, I work out later in the evening and that definitely doesn’t help. I tend to naturally be a night owl, so getting to bed early is always a struggle for me.

Finally, I have a good way to help myself calm down and get into the right state of mind at night. I have to be up early for work and I can finally wake up feeling fresh and ready, instead of feeling like all I want to do is close my eyes and sleep for a few more hours. Aromatherapy diffusers are an amazing natural way to improve your quality of sleep.

stale odorWe are continuing our discussion about stale odors in your home. I should mention these bad smells can be anywhere. Consider places like your car, office, basement – anywhere you might be. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have to smell a bad odor, I don’t want to. Today let’s talk about a couple more essential oils that will help you eliminate stale odors in your home.

Rosemary Essential Oil

The bubonic plague, also known simply as the plague killed over 1/3 of the earth’s population at that time. It was a devastating disease and people would burn rosemary to help stop the spread of the disease. Hospitals also used it to purify the air. Well, in this day and age, you can use rosemary essential oil in your diffuser to clean up stale air in the home because it has an antiseptic and purifying effect. It also smells great.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Just like lemon essential oil which we’ve already discussed, grapefruit essential oil works the same way. When you smell it floating around in the air in your home you’ll see why it’s one of my favorite essential oils. Grapefruit is somewhat stronger than lemon so many people use it where the odor is stronger too, like the bathroom. It’s also great to use in the shower because it is such a refreshing pick me up. Tomorrow we have one more essential oil  to discuss and then we can get into some diffuser recipes.
