What is the Best Way to Diffuse Essential Oils?
We all want the most bang for our buck and we are always looking for ways to stretch our budget, and for many, purchasing essential oils is seen as a splurge. Diffusing your oils and using a carrier oil is a great way to make those bottles of magic last even longer and in turn, be more cost effective! So, stay with me as I show you what I think is the best way to diffuse essential oils.
My favorite way to diffuse my oils is by actually using an unscented, non-toxic body lotion (like this one) as a carrier oil. I simply add a drop of oil to my lotion and apply to my skin as I normally would. Be sure to avoid hot oils like cinnamon or oregano, or phototoxic oils like lemon or wild orange if you are just applying them for emotional or vibrational support, or if you just like that particular scent. You can use hot or citrus oils if you are applying for a specific reason, like when you’re feeling unwell, etc. (oregano applied to the spine using lotion as a carrier is excellent). The very BEST part of this way of diffusing essential oils is getting the emotional support from inhaling the scent all day while enjoying the physical benefits at the same time!
Some of my favorites to apply with lotion are Passion and Whisper. Lately I have been changing it up and using Motivate since I seem to have less stamina and energy lately. Motivate is a much needed pick-me-up late in the afternoons!
