The Benefits of Diffusing Essential Oils into the Air


Diffusing or dispensing essential oils into the air inside your home is a great way to experience the benefits of aromatherapy every day. It is a well-documented fact that the olfactory system (sense of smell) in our bodies has a direct link to the limbic system in the brain. Smells both good and bad can and often do affect our thoughts and moods.

By simply taking personal control over the scents and aromas that we process while in our home, we can help influence the thoughts and moods we experience. Aromatherapy has also been correlated to various physiological functions, such as a release of hormones, relief from pain, and even a positive boost in mood. Notice how the smell of freshly baked cookies probably puts a smile on your face? One way is to utilize custom air fresheners.

The benefits of essential oil aromatherapy differ from individual to individual, but they are most easily experienced when they are breathed in. Air dispersal is one of the best ways to experience aromatherapy.


Cold and Flu:

In cold and flu season, for prevention try some cinnamon and clove. If you have already come down with a bug try diffusing eucalyptus, thyme, manuka, or rosemary.

Purify the Air:

Lemongrass, juniper, tea tree, oregano, and eucalyptus are specifically noted for air purification, plus they can also help clear inside air of the smell of mildew.

Mental Focus:

If you are studying or working on a project that requires clarity, try using peppermint, basil, lemon or rosemary oils.

Rest and Relaxation:

Try diffusing relaxing sweet marjoram, lavender, neroli, Roman chamomile, spikenard or mandarin in the bedroom for 15 minutes before you turn in.


Want to lighten your mood? Try some clary sage paired with any citrus.

Stress Relief:

Use some geranium and lavender.


Want to encourage a little romance? Try scents such as jasmine, ylang ylang, rose, sandalwood or patchouli.


Nervousness can be soothed with neroli, chamomile, frankincense, petitgrain or melissa.

Keep in mind it is easy to create different aroma zones in your house, that way not every room will smell like the bathroom or kitchen.

Most essential oil diffusers need to be plugged into an electrical circuit. They then disperse the oil in a constant flow. This is good, it diffuses the oil into the air, but the scent can become overwhelming soon and the diffuser must be shut off and as such can be easily forgotten. If you are looking for a way to dispense the benefits of essential oils into your home without the need for any additional electricity or products that might be within reach of little one’s hands, try the new VentSense essential oil air freshener. You simply apply your favorite essential oil in the concentration you desire and slide it into you’re a/c air vent. The air in the room will fill with aromatherapeutic oil periodically.
