It’s no secret that I am completely and totally in love with essential oils! We use oils in our home in countless ways, and one of my favorites is to add a beautiful and natural scent to our home.
Why we Diffuse
Once I started to switch over our home to low tox, something that kept coming up for me were how harmful synthetic fragrances can be. I ditched them from our cleaners, perfume/beauty products, and things like candles and air fresheners. Diffusing essential oils is a simple (and dreamy!) replacement to candles. It’s also really cost effective, and I love being able to change up our scents whenever I want to.
If you follow along with me on social media, you’ll know that I am in love with the aria diffuser. It’s wood and glass and my absolute favorite! I also love YL’s ceramic haven diffuser, and we have lots of desert mist diffusers throughout our home. I even have a few Amazon favorites!
Favorite Oil Combinations
My favorites tend to change seasonally, I LOVE all of the fall and holiday oils! Right now for spring we diffuse lots of citrus oils (orange, tangerine, lime, lemon, grapefruit, bergamot to name a few!) I also love adding oils like Jade Lemon, Lemon Myrtle, Stress Away, Vanilla, Joy, Ylang Ylang, and Geranium. It smells like a combination of a citrus grove and a wildflower field in our home for most of spring and summer, and I am in love!
Making the switch to low tox does not need to happen all at once, a diffuser and some pretty smelling oils are a great place to start!
