Valentine’s Day is approaching, and many couples are going to want to share time together to show their spouse how much they love and care about them.
So the Valentine’s Day events begin – from cards to flowers, perfume, letters, stuffed animals and chocolate, people shop for those little gifts that are going to impress their loved one and snow their loved one just how much love they have for them and how much they value them.
This approach doesn’t always work for everyone though ~ not everyone can get into crowded restaurants or head out on exotic vacations…and thus they look to transform the bedroom into an exciting, and seductive place that they can spend some time together in appreciation of each other.
Essential Oils can have many benefits on the body – they can support healthy hormones, support a healthy respiratory system, thyroid, support healthy fertility, and help support a feeling of love and appreciation towards your partner or spouse.
Diffusing essential oils is the most cost effective way to reap health benefits – every time you breathe in the oils you take advantage of their boosting properties.
When you inhale them through your nose, tiny nerves send an immediate signal to the brain; at that point in time, the brain immediately goes to work on the systems that moderate your mind and body.
Inhalation is the most direct method of nurturing components in essential oils: the chemical messengers in the nasal cavity have direct access to your brain. Essential oils have the ability to pass the blood/brain barrier and penetrate membranes allows them to reach the emotional center of the brain in seconds.
What type of Diffuser?
When diffusing, you should be using a cold air diffuser – unlike a candle warmer (which heats), a cold air diffuser does not heat the oil. So the properties of that essential oil remain fully – intact.
Diffusing at this time of the year is amazing ~ who doesn’t love the smell of Christmas?! We combined all of our favorite holiday diffuser blends to encourage you to “toss” those candles and get healthier through diffusing ~ you’ll fall in love with the ease and scents.
The Young Living Starter Kit comes with your choice of diffuser – and I have several of them. They run for up to 8 hours on the intermittent setting, making it perfect for the bedroom.
Or, you can pick up this Mofado Essential Oil Diffuser on Amazon – it’s one of my favorite “non” Young Living diffusers because it runs for up to 6 hours and blends in with wood decor.
To properly diffuse, you’ll also want to make sure you are using quality Essential Oils. When it comes to Essential Oils, there are a LOT of places you can buy them. They are not all made the same.
Many Essential Oils you find in store are merely fragrance oils. These oils are created as synthetic substances – the smell is a mere imitation, but the therapeutic properties are not present. You’ll want to make sure you are using real quality, therapeutic grade essential oils.
