Essential oils are most commonly used for their benefits in aromatherapy supporting our emotional wellness and can be used in aromatherapy in a variety of ways.
Essential Oil Diffuser
One of the most common ways to reap the benefits of essential oils is through an electronic or candle-burning diffuser.
Electronic diffusers diffuse essential oils when they’re added to water or onto a pad.
Candle-burning diffusers use heat to disperse the essential oils, where the oils are added to a dish above with the candle heating it directly below.
People enjoy diffusers because they offer a great way to reap the benefits of the oils throughout a room while making your home smell spectacular!
