How Using an Aroma Diffuser Can Improve Your Mental and Physical Health

There are a lot of benefits to using an aroma diffuser outside of just making your home, office or car smell good. It can vastly improve your mental health, by helping you destress and uplift your mood. There are also physical benefits an aroma diffuser with essential oils can provide. Here are some ways an aroma diffuser can improve your mental health.

Stress Relief

Whether it's the stress from work, managing a household or just general anxiety, there’s always something getting your blood pressure up and that can be detrimental to your physical health. 

Certain essential oils can be used to relieve stress, help you wind down and physically relax. Rose oil, ylang ylang and clary sage oils have been shown to help reduce anxiety, relax your muscles and lower depression.

Changing Moods

Sometimes when you’re in a particularly bad mood, you want to reach for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine to boost your mood. We suggest diffusing some oils instead to get that pep in your step first. Some oils can trigger feelings of joy and contentment, just like a lot of regular scents in our daily life. (Think of how you feel when you smell freshly baked cookies or the scent of a brand new car.)

Oils like vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, lavender, jasmine, lemon and rose can invoke different feelings of happiness. That’s why they’re the most commonly used scents in candles and ingredients in herbal teas!

Meditation and Sleep

To help with sleep and to clear your mind, there are certain oils that can help you achieve a great meditation experience or help you clear your mind to fall asleep. Frankincense is one of the best oils to have in your diffuser when meditating. Add sandalwood, lavender, myrrh and sage oils in that mix. Chamomile and peppermint oils are helpful for getting to sleep.

When thinking about how to help your overall wellness, something as simple and easy as an aroma diffuser can be a tremendous benefit. Next time you’re in the need of a change mentally or physical relief, try using a diffuser and essential oils first to see how your day or night improves.
