There’s nothing like lit candles, good music and the ambiance it creates for a relaxing evening at home. And while I haven’t completely kicked the candle habit to the curb, I’m being wiser about my choices for the more occasional lighting of only soy or beeswax while avoiding the paraffin (toxin releasing) candles.
But an even better option, which I pretty much use all day long while at home are our essential oil diffusers. Definitely a new kind of addiction. Another plus? It’s elicited more, “Wow, it smells great in here,” comments from guests than my mix of candles ever did!
In our home we have cold-air diffuser since it allows us to enjoy all the benefits of essential oils–not just the scent. Unlike warmers, a cold-air diffuser doesn’t heat the oil, so all of the therapeutic benefits of essential oils remain intact as the properties of the oil aren’t broken down.
If you’re someone who meditates, or you’re into yoga, there’s nothing better than aromatherapy during your sessions. We use ours for relaxation, clearing the air during cold season, or when we want to empower ourselves and focus on getting our tasks done.
Here’s one our favorites:
This blend is a great way to wake up as it increases mental alertness (which is also great for an afternoon pick-me-up) and stimulates.
Young Living’s new Home Diffuser, with its rose-inspired design, combines a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy diffuser into one simple-to-use product that safely releases essential oils into the air to eliminate odors and create a relaxing atmosphere.

Custom designed with ambient light control, and alternating 30-second on/off and continuous run settings, Young Living’s Home Diffuser can transform any space into a spa-like atmosphere.
