Essential oils are, in our humble opinion, just as their name suggests: essential! These natural compounds are extracted from plants and can provide ample benefits to those who utilize them correctly.
Essential oils can be beneficial by purifying and/or deodorizing the air, helping to ease anxiousness or boosting your overall mood, stimulating alertness and concentration, and so much more. However, it depends on how you use your essential oils and which essential oils you choose to use.
One of the best and easiest ways to use essential oils is with a diffuser, which is also referred to as an aroma lamp. Diffusers heat up a mixture of an essential oil or aromatherapy blend and water and disperse the vapors into the air via nebulization.
But which essential oils are best, what are their benefits, and what other essential oils can they be blended with to provide you with even more advantages? Let’s take a closer look!
