How to use Diffusers ?

Diffuser needs an Essential oil of your Choice and purpose. A heat source which can be electric or candle, lamp etc and water.

Traditional Diffuser.

There will be a shallow dish on top of the tea light holder, fill it with water and add few drops of essential oil. You can even mix essential oil according to your preference. Allow the tea light candle to burn. Place it in an area where the aroma can fill the room.

Cautions and tips:

1. Be careful while using Essential oil. It is not recommended in homes with infants, pregnant moms and pets.
2. Since it uses a heat source and essential oil, it needs to be kept in a safe place away from children and pets.

Some of my favorites are

10 drops of pepper mint and 4 drops of orange (perfect on day, and work hours).
Lemongrass is great on a cleaning day. Better used on days when the place is wet ( raining cloudy days). Lavender and cedar wood on nights to calm and reduce anxiety.
