Diffuse Your Mood

We’re going to talk about the hidden gem that just might be the MVP of your home. Diffusers.

Let’s start at the beginning. What is a diffuser? Known most commonly for it’s aromatherapy uses, a diffuser is a device that breaks down water and essential oils into smaller molecules, dispersing them into the air. When used with essential oils, the air is filled with a pleasant or calming aroma. Now, whether you believe essential oils have beneficial effects or not, nobody can deny a good smell. And smell, being the most sensitive of the senses, plays a major role in your mood.

Different essential oils have different claims. Lavender for example, is supposed to be calming and promote sleep. Peppermint, known for being refreshing and energizing, has been said to reduce stress related symptoms like headaches and heart rate. And Frankincense is most notably known for mood enhancing and energy lifting, as well as anxiety and stress reducing. It’s said to positively stimulate the brain’s limbic system, which is responsible for controlling emotions. These are just 3 of the MANY essential oils that are out there!

Himalayan Salt Lamp

For added benefit, some diffusers double as a Himalayan salt lamps. If you’re not familiar with the rising trend of Himalayan salt lamps, let’s talk about it for a second. Himalayan salt lamps are said to work in two ways, by releasing negative ions into the air and pulling in allergens and toxins to clean the air. Negative ions are believed to produce a biochemical reaction that increases serotonin levels. Serotonin, or the happy chemical, is known to regulate anxiety and reduce depression. So the more serotonin the better your mood. A diffuser that doubles as aromatherapy AND a salt lamp is the perfect solution for an all around mood boosting and energizing experience.
