Diffusing is absolutely one of the things that intrigues people about essential oils. They smell it, they learn how to make own blends, and the mad scientist emerges from behind the diffuser.
Aromatic science is powerful, the science behind it is fascinating.
The olfactory system is your sense of smell. Using our nose, the essential oils work with these systems and affect the brain within minutes.
When you inhale, the essential oils travel through the nose and affect the brain through a line of receptors, also one of them is the “emotional center” or limbic system. It makes the oils a powerful alley in our emotions.
Most of the blends listed you will love in the diffuser, but some you can also use for a topical blend if you wish. I have included a few bonus roller ball blends for you to use during the holiday. Check out the slide show below.
Have fun with them. The diffuser blends are a guideline!
