It’s true that essential oils have been dominating the beauty and wellness industries for years, but mankind has used them since the dawn of time. Cleopatra, the Queen of the Nile, favored essential oils like myrrh, rose, cypress, frankincense, and neroli for fragrance. Holistic-minded celebrities of today, such as Kerry Washington, Gisele Bündchen, Natalie Grant, and Demi Moore, love to use essential oils for various reasons.
I have loved aromatherapy since I was a teenager. It all started with lavender essential oil. I found the smell of lavender to be of the most calming and enchanting scents! Essential oils are now an integral part of my daily life, because there isn’t a day that goes by without me using them. Some of my favorite essential oils are frankincense, jade lemon, jasmine, and patchouli.
I love wearing essential oils as fragrances as Cleopatra did. My go-to scents are rose, jasmine, and patchouli. I love the fact that they’re natural as opposed to the slew of the synthetic fragrances that are dominating the beauty market. I stopped wearing synthetic fragrances eons ago since they’d irritate my allergies, causing me to go into a sneezing frenzy. That’s not the case at all with essential oils.
I use essential oils in other several ways, including applying them on my pulse points and the soles of my feet, slowly waving them under my nose, and diffusing them. I actually prefer diffusing essential oils over burning candles. They create the same tranquil, inspiring, and beautiful ambiance in the home without me worrying about a potential fire hazard. I even often incorporate essential oils in my beauty, hair care, and household products!
I also love to diffuse some of my favorite essential oils. Alternatively, it can be used as a vaporizer without the usage of oils to help purify your surrounding air quality. This is beneficial in improving your breathing and reducing nasal congestion.
The simple, modern, and compact design of the Oak Leaf Essential Oil Diffuser virtually complements any home style and a variety of decor. It has a 250ml. unit that ensures a long-lasting cycle. The high mode produces over 8 hours of continuous operation; while the low mode stretches beyond 12 hours. This is where it surpassed my expectations the most, because I’ve used diffusers that seemingly only lasted a few hours.
It mentions in the manual to use 12 drops of essential oils, but this would be excessive in my case since I use the highest quality of essential oil. I’ve found that just a few drops of essential oil permeate the air nicely, despite the generously sized capacity of the diffuser! I also love how the Oak Leaf Essential Oil Diffuser emits a bright glow of varying colors at the line in the center, which can easily be switched off in the midst of diffusing. I find the colors to be therapeutic, especially if I’m having trouble falling asleep at night.
Overall, my experience with this diffuser has been wonderful so far. It’s available at a budget-friendly price point ($45.99) and ships free.
