Since receiving my first oil diffuser as a gift for my birthday a few years ago, I’ve amassed a collection that grows each time I enter a Neal’s Yard. I simply can’t go past without being lured in by the fragrant mist. I choose a refreshing scent such as peppermint or eucalyptus in the morning, followed by an uplifting blend in the afternoon and a calming mix just before bed. Try diffusing chamomile essential oil at the same time as sipping the tea. You’ll be drifting off in no time.
If I’m in need of some indulgence, I go for neroli as it calms my anxiety like nothing else. It’s the perfect balance between uplifting and calming that works a treat at soothing an overworked mind. Whenever my mood is feeling firmly stuck and shows no signs of shifting, clary sage just seems to clear the air and all of the surrounding negative energy wonderfully. The most powerful yet gentle mood shifter on a down day. If I’m in full on zombie mode on a morning, I love using a few drops of This Works Morning Expert Wake-Up Drops, it’s remarkable at brightening dull spirits and great for kicking off the day with positive vibes.
``Not only are essential oils great for emotional support, but they fill the entire house with a scent equal to a luxury spa. Just a few drops of oil is needed every few hours, meaning a standard sized bottle will last you months. ``
Not only are essential oils great for emotional support, but they fill the entire house with a scent equal to a luxury spa. Just a few drops of oil is needed every few hours, meaning a standard sized bottle will last you months. Ditch your air fresheners riddled with chemicals for the mood enhancing powers of essential oils. Scented candles do still of course have a place firmly in my heart, but the cleanness and cost effectiveness of diffusing or burning essential oils appeals to me much more for daily use.
If you’re after a diffuser, Sanatio Naturalis do a minimalistic porcelain version that blends well into any surroundings, whereas Neal’s Yard have a China Burner if your budget doesn’t stretch that far. You can also mix a few drops with water in a spray bottle to mist onto your sheets at night or to freshen up upholstery. Be sure to also check out the Neal’s Yard Remedies To Roll Set if you’re after support on-the-go.
