If you are a passionate homemaker, you must be familiar with diffuser oils and how they help to add a lovely fragrance to your home. Now, did you know that they can serve other purposes as well, like repelling mosquitoes!? They have some unprecedented benefits that are sure to surprise at least some of you. Take a look at 6 such reasons which will tell you why diffuser oils are a must for your lovely home.

  • Keep mild illnesses at bay

Diffuser oils have a knack for getting rid of microbes and bacteria that cause mild illnesses like cold and flu. They have antimicrobial properties and by diffusing into the air they will cleanse the atmosphere around you, shielding you from the microbes that might enter your body. Most diffuser oils contain herbal extracts that have various medicinal benefits such as boosting the immune system. Another way diffuser oils protect is by acting as humidifiers. They help in keeping the airways moist, so that you are shielded from the microbes that enter your body. Use diffuser oils made from thyme, lemon, rosemary, etc. for best results.

  • Repel mosquitoes

The fragrance released by diffuser oils are known to scare away mosquitoes and other insects as well. Unlike the synthetic mosquito repellants available in the market, diffuser oils contain no harmful chemicals in them. Hence, they are safe even for infants. Also, if you are using the traditional method for diffusing the oils, they do not need electricity or fire to work, rendering a safer mosquito free environment for your home. They are easy to maintain and handle as well. Diffuser oils which contain extracts of lemongrass, clove, rosemary, cedarwood, etc. are known to be effective in fending off mosquitoes and small insects.

  • Help improve breathing

The diffuser oils come with extracts of herbal medicines infused in them. These extracts have various health benefits such as countering inflammation and congestion. Thus, when you breathe the air that is rich in these essential oils, you are actually breathing in herbal extracts. This will help clear blocked nose enabling you to breathe easy. It will help in clearing congestion related to sinus infection. The herbal extracts in diffuser oils are also known to provide relief to sore throats. Using diffuser oils made from the extracts of herbs like peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, lemon, etc. will help you counter congestion in the airway.

  • Relieves pain

Application of essential oils directly to the body is a tried and tested method for relieving pain. By diffusing the oil into the atmosphere, you can prolong the effect that essential oils have when it comes to countering body pain. By breathing in diffuser oil (which is primarily essential oil), the medicinal extracts in the oils will reach deep inside the body, giving a more effective result in relieving the pain. It is highly effective in countering persistent pains like headaches, muscle pains, sore joints, etc. Diffuser oils with extracts of eucalyptus, chamomile, clary sage, rosemary, ginger, lavender, bergamot, etc. are best for pain relief.

  • Sharpens the gray cells

Diffuser oils are known to have stimulating effect on one’s mood. They can help you rev up your energy as much as they can help you relax. If you are feeling drained and lethargic, a breath of air with diffuser oil extracts can bring you right back on track. They can also bring down the stress level, helping you focus properly on the task at hand. Essential oils are also known to have a balancing effect on the hormones in our body. Prolonged use of diffuser oil in your home or office can help you improve your ability to concentrate and elevate your cognitive function. Use oils made from eucalyptus, lemon, peppermint, pine, etc. for improved presence of mind and focus.

  • For a relaxed sleep

One of the main benefits of diffuser oils is the soothing effect it has on our nerves. Using a diffuser, the oils can easily get into your bloodstream leaving you relaxed and peaceful. You don’t need anything else for a good night’s sleep. Chamomile oil, clary sage oil, lavender oil, jasmine oil etc. are highly recommended for a sound sleep.

Use of diffuser oils at your home can not only elevate the fragrance, "but also" render it healthier and free of small insects. These wonderful perks that come with the use of diffuser oil truly make it an amazing addition to your home.
