When my kids were little we used to enjoy Sunday mornings with them in the kitchen. We’d have the Paul Harvey show on AM Radio 1360, my husband would cook a delicious breakfast and we’d eat, drink coffee, read, and enjoy our children. Back then we couldn’t even imagine what it would be like when they were older. Now the kids are young adults, a junior in college and a junior in high school and we don’t have as many of those Sunday mornings anymore. So when the kids are home on Sunday mornings and we can be lazy, one of my favorite things to do on Sunday mornings is to put the diffuser on in the kitchen.
Amongst the many benefits of essential oils, some of my favorites are the support of emotional wellness and stress relief they provide. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy precious family time than to insert aromatherapy into the picture. The first time I inserted aromatherapy into family time was Christmas dinner. I always host my parents and my mother in law. I diffused Christmas Spirit. It was a huge hit!
So let’s take about this combination in the picture. I have recently treated myself to the Desert Mist Diffuser. This thing functions as a humidifier, atomizer and aroma diffuser all by simply pressing a button. It can diffuse 5-6 hours on high mode, 8 hours on low mode or 10 hours on intermittent mode. In addition, it has 11 different light settings with colors! Personally, I love everything about this diffuser. The oils in the picture next to the diffuser are Peace and Calming II and Citrus Fresh. Peace and Calming II is a blend of 10 different essential oils. It supports calming the mind and providing a sense of well being. The other oil, Citrus Fresh, is a blend of six essential oils. It acts as an air purifier as well as provides support for anxiety, and helps to promote feelings of creativity and well being.
More about the oils themselves. I use Peace and Calming II a few days a week. Life is messy and I take what I can get to feel centered at all times. Citrus Fresh is great for when you are cleaning your house and you want to top it off with a fresh scent in the room.
So many oils, so many uses. Keep reading. Happy Sunday.
