So I decided to get crafty and make diffuser bracelets to give as holiday gifts. I coupled them with small dram sizes of Orange or Lavender Oil. They are a big hit among my friends and colleagues! The school smells great! Back to the craft store I go!!! I see a weekend of crafting ahead! Also making Chest rub for my hacking school friends!
It is official ! I feel like I have can run with the big dogs. You know that feeling when you feel like a grown up? Ha at age 47 my day has come! I officially have a website! It has been a labor of love for the past few months. I unveiled it last night for my family and friends!
I feel so better equipped to help share my love of oils with the world!
I would love to hear your thoughts! Kicking my heels up today!
The aromatic smell of lavender can do so much! This powerful scent can settle a baby, help you relax, calm an ADHD child. This is one oil I diffuse regularly in the classroom. I have seen the most active child settle after diffusing this! It is a wonderful oil to use during yoga and meditation!
It also has an incredible power to heal! From cuts to scrapes to burns lavender can do it all! Just a tad on a burn will take away to awful sensation! Keep a bit handy in a spray bottle with distilled water for little ones! make a cream for eczema!
Use it alongside peppermint, and lemon for an allergy remedy. 3 drops of in a diffuser will help control yucky seasonal allergies, 5 drops each in a capsule and you will start feeling relief soon! AMAZING Relief!
One of THE most versatile oils in the bag! The aroma is heavenly! Natural not sweet smelling like some!
I love knowing where my product comes from! One day I will visit the lavender fields in Idaho!!!!
I have not found an appliance I have been more in love with! Love my Keurig, microwave, hair dryer, Crock Pot and Magic Bullet, but none hold a candle to my Home Diffuser!
Never heard of a diffuser? Neither had I before July 2013 until I entered the world of essential oils. And now I CAN NOT live without one! This is what it is! It combines a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy that safely releases essential oils into the air to eliminate odors and create a spa-like atmosphere. Sounds glorious right? Well let me tell you it is! What one product can take you back to your childhood, put you to sleep, help you when you are sick? None… The key is in the nose!
The olfactory system includes all physical organs or cells relating to, or contributing to, the sense of smell. When we inhale through the nose, airborne molecules interact with the olfactory organs and, almost immediately, the brain.
Molecules inhaled through the nose or mouth are also carried to the lungs and interact with the respiratory system. Thus, inhaled essential oils can affect the body through several systems and pathways.
Interaction with the Limbic System (Emotional Brain)
During inhalation, odor molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.”
The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance (Higley & Higley, 1998). This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions. Knowing this, we can hypothesize how inhalation of essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!
“Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived.” Helen Keller
So, depending on the oil you place in the diffuser the reaction of the body is different.
Once taking 2 different sleep medications now just Cedarwood Oil, Peace and Calming Oil (tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli and blue tansy), valerian root and melatonin I can get a great night’s sleep. This was something I once thought an impossibility without a script! Natural products allow me to function daily with a clear brain. two years ago I would have NEVER believed this to be possible.
I now have 3 diffusers! One in my bedroom for sleep, kitchen for the common areas and in my classroom (my home away from home).
CAUTION: I had someone who had heard me talk about my diffuser and they ordered one online. Within a week theirs had broken and they wanted to know how long mine lasted. All I can say is Young Living’s diffusers come with a 1 Year warranty. I would NOT be buying mine online from Amazon or from Whole Foods as I like that I can return it within a year if it were to break. I can say my first two diffusers, that are over a year a still going strong. My latest one the Bamboo Diffuser used EVERYDAY!!
From the scent of Christmas with cinnamon and orange to sleepy scents like cedarwood, Peace and Calming and Lavender to waking up with Lemon and Peppermint I will NEVER be without one of these handy appliances again. Addicted? YES!!!!!
