I’ve long been a candle addict. There’s nothing like lit candles, good music and the ambiance it creates for a relaxing evening at home. And while I haven’t completely kicked the candle habit to the curb, I’m being wiser about my choices for the more occasional lighting of only soy or beeswax while avoiding the paraffin (toxin releasing) candles.  But an even better option, which I pretty much use all day long while at home are our essential oil diffusers. Definitely a new kind of addiction. Another plus? It’s elicited more, “Wow, it smells great in here,” comments from guests than my mix of candles ever did!

In our home we have cold-air diffuser since it allows us to enjoy all the benefits of essential oil recipes–not just the scent. Unlike warmers, a cold-air diffuser doesn’t heat the oil, so all of the therapeutic benefits of essential oils remain intact as the properties of the oil aren’t broken down. We’ve been having so much fun experimenting with recipes for our diffusers, and I’m sharing some of our favorite essential oil recipes today! Of course there’s nothing wrong with diffusing a single oil, as I love just using some oils on their own, but mixing them together to create great scents or benefits for the home opens up a whole new world.
