Benefits of Diffusing Essential Oils
Diffusing essential oils is a form of aromatherapy, which is a wellness practice that uses the aromas of essential oils to improve our wellbeing and to help us experience the connection between our body, mind, and spirit.
When we diffuse essential oils we disperse the aroma into the air through a fine mist, which we can smell more easily. Your sense of smell is directly linked to your brain and plays a big role in your bodily responses and memory. Just like when you smell food and then feel hungry, when you smell certain essential oils you may feel more calm, energized, or at ease. Here are just a few of the many benefits of diffusing essential oils:
- Promotes sense of wellbeing
- Creates a calming environment
- Enhances mood
- Boosts focus and concentration
- Support clearer breathing
- Repels bugs
- Reduces odors
- Refreshes your home
