As the wild fires rage on in the western states, air quality has become unhealthy. Though we don’t have much control over the air we are exposed to outdoors, we can improve our air quality indoors and support our respiratory system by diffusing therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Because diffusion distributes essential oil molecules into the air so effectively, it is an excellent way to maximize the beneficial properties of essential oils. And whether you’re looking for lung and respiratory support or just want to “freshen up” the air in your indoor spaces, we recommend the following:

Thieves®: This essential oil blend is a powerful combination of Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, and Rosemary essential oils. Specifically designed to support the body’s natural defenses, each concentrated drop contains the naturally occurring constituents eugenol, eucalyptol, and alpha-pinine (among others). Uplifting and energizing, it fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. 

Eucalyptus Radiata: This essential oil comes from the leaves of an evergreen tree native to Australia. Part of the Myrtaceae plant family, Eucalyptus Radiata is steam distilled. Its distinctly fresh aroma is sharp and clean, sparking a sense of refreshment and renewal. Popular in salons and spas, Eucalyptus Radiata oil promotes a stimulating and rejuvenating environment anywhere it’s diffused. Its soothing scent makes it the perfect addition to any bedtime routine when applied to the chest or back.

Purification®: You can ditch overpowering and harsh chemical-based sprays and keep your home smelling fresh and clean with Purification® essential oil blend. Formulated with six essential oils—Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Myrtle, Rosemary, and Tea Tree—it provides the ultimate weapon against odors to create a refreshing, bright scent. With Purification, eliminating bad odors from cooking, laundry, pets, or anything else life throws your way is just a diffuser-session away.

Raven™: Cool and refreshing, this minty essential oil blend is a combination of Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, Peppermint, Ravintsara, and Wintergreen. Like an effervescent breeze through a grove of eucalyptus trees, Raven provides a refreshing aromatic experience when diffused or inhaled directly. The naturally occurring constituents eucalyptol, menthol, and methyl salicylate provide an invigorating and empowering experience, particularly before or after a workout or when winding down for the evening.Picture 5

Benefits for Everyone
When oils are diffused into the air, they are also absorbed into your body through your nose and skin and can help build immunity and have a healing impact, including cell renewal. And as we’ve shared in past articles, the power of our sense of smell can have profound effects on our emotions and our mood. Here are additional reasons everyone in the room can benefit from diffusing essential oils.

A Note About Ultrasonic Diffusers
Ultrasonic diffusion combines the advantages of a humidifier, an air purifier, an atomiser, and an aroma diffuser into one by breaking a mixture of essential oils and water into millions of microparticles and dispersing them into the air.

The modern-looking Aria™ Ultrasonic Diffuser brings the benefits of essential oils into your home or workplace in a stylish way. This system combines the latest in diffuser technology with a variety of useful features. The included remote lets you choose a selection of built-in sounds, set your run time, and enjoy the multicolored LED lights. With the built-in speakers, you can plug in your own personal music device and enjoy the music of your choice.

Why Young Living?
We recommend using Young Living Essential Oils because we can stand by their quality and integrity. Essential oils sold in most health food stores are aroma-grade or fragrance-grade oils that might have an essential oil base but contain additives, fillers and synthetics to increase volume or fragrance. We use Young Living Essential Oils because we know they are pure and contain the therapeutic-level chemical compounds found in the plants that support health in humans.

In addition, Young Living owns their own farms or partners with farms that share their standards for growing, harvesting and distilling. They distill oils once at low temperatures and pressures, using chemical-free water and medical-grade stainless steel distillers and stand by the quality of each bottle of essential oil they produce with a Seed to Seal guarantee.
