So, where do we begin?
- Diffuser-it’s a popular choice as it’s effective and lasts a long time. The diffuser distributes the scent around the room, filling the air with all its goodness.
- Roller ball-This is an applicator that is used manually. Simply make your own mixture using 15 drops of essential oils to 2 drops of carrier and apply to wrists and neck when needed.
- Tissue-You don’t need anything to start other than some essential oil and a tissue, put some drops onto the tissue and wave and inhale the aroma periodically to get those instant calming effects.
- Car diffuser- Forget care fresheners and use a car diffuser instead. Put some drops into it and turn it on when you please, it will distribute the aroma creating a feeling of calmness, great for days when you’re not feeling your best and not looking forward to work and also for helping to wind down on the way home.
When it comes to essential oils, there are many options to choose from. A professional Aromatherapist can help to create the right combination to help with you cope with day-to-day stress.
