essential oil love

March 9, 2015

You can probably tell by the title of this post that I am not as big a lover of fragrant candles as I am of pure essential oils. Candles are very hit and miss for me and my husband can find them overwhelming and headache inducing.

That never happens with my favorite flower oils: lavender, bergamot, and ylang ylang.

Whether you like essential oils for their therapeutic benefits or the delicious way they make your home smell like an expensive spa, they add something that perfumed candles just can’t.

In the past, I’ve used old school tea light candles under a suspended dish of water sprinkled with the oils to release the magic from these concentrated extractions . These ceramic and metal and glass burners would inevitably get bumped and broken, spilled and burned dry.

My new love is this modern diffuser, which is much safer and looks like a giant psychedelic marshmallow sitting on my kitchen counter. It makes me so happy and not only lights up and changes color (a feature you can switch off), it also acts as a humidifier during the dry days of winter.

The steam from the oils can lift your mood and make you feel like you are doing something just for you with a push of a button. A diffuser and oils starter pack makes a perfect gift as well.
