Essential Oil Blend Delivery Methods
There are several ways to use fall essential oil blends, but when it comes to “sharing” with your family it narrows down to a few. For example, it eliminates personal inhalers and jewelry. The following are the best ways to fill your space with the warm fuzzy scents of fall essential oil blends.
Cotton or Wool for Essential Oils
Using cotton balls or pieces of felted wool is one of the easiest ways to enjoy your fall essential oil blends in the car. Placing several drops on a small piece of wool can keep your vehicle smelling great for up to two weeks.
Room Spray for Essential Oils
Creating a room spray is easy. Use 18 drops of one of your favorite fall essential oil blends to every 2oz. of water in a spray container. It’s preferable to use filtered or distilled water, and be sure to shake the bottle well before each use. This is great to use in a restroom, on sheets, or when you want a quick mood brightener.
Best Diffusers for Essential Oils
Cold air diffusers are my preferred way of enjoying essential oils. It spreads the scent in a wide area within minutes and for a long period of time. Diffusers don’t heat the oil, so the essential oils remain intact and you may receive the therapeutic benefit.
