I am one of those people who absolutely LOVE essential oils! I use them on my clients during massage, after reflexology, and even in my skin care products. For a long time, being on a limited military income, my husband and I couldn't afford a diffuser from young living, which is where we buy our oils. So after a lot of digging, we ended up finding one that we love and to top it off-- it is pretty cool looking! It even lights up when it is on, or there is the option to turn off the light!
I was skeptical I must say, about diffusing essential oils throughout my home. When I burn candles or incense I do it for two reasons, to lift the mood and to smell good-- haha. I wasn't sure if the essential oils would be that strong or how it would work. Well my husband bought this essential oil diffuser for me for my birthday this year. As soon as it came to my door, I opened that box right up and got it going. I diffused 4 drops of thieves. My husband came home about an hour later and the first thing he said was "Oh man it smells good in here- is that thieves?". I smiled proudly and said "Yes! I am using the diffuser you bought me, come check it out!"
We have fallen in love with diffusing oils! My dogs behave much better and we all are getting more of a restful night's sleep-- which is always great when you are pregnant. So this is our diffusing recipe:
First thing in the morning- I sometimes have a tough time getting going and just want to lay in bed all day. I diffuse 3 drops of Joy essential oil blend.
Mid-day before my husband comes home, I diffuse either 5 drops of Thieves essential oil blend in the living room, or I diffuse 2 drops of Believe and 2 drops of Forgiveness essential oil blends.
At bed time I usually diffuse 4 drops of Peace and Calming. If we are feeling like we are fighting some type of sickness, we diffuse 2 drops of Thieves and 3 drops of Eucalyptus.
This changes from day to day depending on what is going on in our lives. Sometimes if I lay down mid day to relax or when I'm doing my yoga/mediation I will diffuse Gentle Baby essential oil blend. I usually do my yoga & mediation in the baby's nursery that is slowly coming together. I want to do everything I can do bring positive and calming energy into that room. I also spend time praying in there each day. Gentle Baby is often used for newborns, expectant mothers, and post birth. I like to put it in lotions for babies, body butters for expectant mothers to rub on their stomach, and I also like to give it to dad as well. Gentle Baby is known for the bonding effect that it has with the child and the parents as well.
