Best uses for Essential Oils in an Aroma Diffuser
Using an aroma diffuser is an easy way to use essential oils in everyday life. Pour the indicated amount of water into your diffuser and use approximately 10 drops of oil per half cup of water. However, some oils like rosemary are strong so fewer drops will be needed.
Use them to fall sound sleep by diffusing lavender, chamomile or bergamot. For maximum effect, we’ve mixed them all together in Volant’s Organic Sleep Blend.
To find a relaxing state at home we recommend using the aroma diffuser daily in the living room when you are at home. This regular ritual will enhance the effects of soothing essential oils. In the long run, the ritual can help you get rid of anxiety and stress. Here’s a flowery DIY mixture you can diffuse in your home to relax: 6 drops of lavender essential oil, 6 drops of Roman chamomile essential oil, and 3 drops of geranium essential oil.
Essential oils that help you perform at work and lift your mood are cinnamon, peppermint, grapefruit, bergamot, rosemary, clary sage and sandalwood. We have created a mixture that is designed to give you an energy boost in everyday life, we call it Energy.
One of the best aspects of using aromatherapy at home is that you can create a unique indoor climate. As we often say at Volant, home is not a place, it is a feeling. Smell helps you create the feeling of home and of a safe, calming space while refreshing and cleansing the home climate. This is ideal when practicing yoga or meditation. The oils we recommend using are lemon, tea tree, grapefruit and bergamot.
