With endless possibilities and combinations with just a few essential oils, you could have a new fragrance for a new day.
What are essential oils and why do we prefer them over the store-bought fragrances? Store bought fragrances are usually made from toxic chemicals while essential oils are natural plant extracts derived usually distillation from plants of all kinds. Although we do not look at it from the medicinal perspective yet we can confirm that it is indeed useful in many aspects. For one, inhaling the aroma or being surrounded by the scent can have a calming effect on the mind and relaxes the body. When the aroma is inhaled, it triggers the nerve impulses in the brain to react in certain manner, and we begin to have a change in our emotion, thoughts and feelings. Inhalation gives an immediate stimulus that helps us feel better. Whether you plan on using a traditional reed diffuser with the bamboo sticks or an electric one, the blends work with all. The invigorating aroma spreads in the entire room keeping your mind and body at peace. Diffusers as some might say, are room sprays with a healing effect on the mind and the body.
