Essential oils and Aromatherapy are hot topics these days.
And as the popularity of this trend grows, so will the aesthetics and practicalities of its associated accessories.
In fact, when it comes to essential oil diffusers, we’re already seeing some some fantastic products populating the market.
When it comes to interior design, I believe that having a sleek aromatherapy diffuser and a great blend of essential oils filling your house with aroma is a great way to boost the appeal of any room.
Some of the best hotels in the world know this. Walk in to some of the fancier establishments and your nose quickly fills with welcoming scents like jasmine, sandalwood and lavender.
Smell is a strong sense for humans. And the first whiff of a room sends a clear first impression of the living space.
Never underestimate how scent can impresses or disgust a visitor in your home.
One of the most appealing notions about essential oils and diffusion is the price point. You can buy many essential oils for incredibly inexpensive prices.
And while the diffuser can sometimes cost a little bit more than the oils, there are plenty modern and sleek looking choices out there that are far less expensive than you’d initially anticipate.
For example, you could purchase a rustic and stylish ceramic candle lit diffuser for under $10.
Whatever your price point is when purchasing an essential oil diffuser, there are a good deal of choices out there and with an abundance of inexpensive essential oils out there to choose from you can be set up with a wonderfully fragrant house for under $30.
How is that for an upgrade to your room?
Now, like i’ve said there are a lot of essential oils to choose from. And this works out great for us.
For every room in our house it’s good to be aware of what tone or mood we want to create.
And of course we do this with color and arrangement. But how often do you take into account scent?
Before i found essential oils I was a little stuck in this department.
There are plenty of fragrant sticks around that you can buy. But they’re often too pungent and synthetic smelling. They also fade quickly.
And then there’s incense sticks. I personally enjoy incense, but it can be very musky and leaves a room with an aire of mugginess.
With an oil diffuser you have access to a huge variety of smells that you’re able to fill any room with. You can easily vary the intensity of smell and the won’t linger longer than you want it to.
Plus you can change the scent on a whim, depending on how you’re wanting to use your space.
Say you want a room to double as a play area for your kids and a meditation room for your husband.
Just have two scents that you can keep next to your diffuser. When you want the space to be calm and meditative, place a blend of soothing and relaxing smells like sandalwood, lavender myrrh or chamomile in your diffuser and enjoy.
Once you’re finished using the space for meditation and the kids are getting home you can switch the smell to a more uplifting mixture with oils like grapefruit, lemon, eucalyptus, black pepper or sweet orange.
Hopefully this post has opened up some new ideas in your mind and maybe inspired you to take up aromatherapy as a practice for home beautification!
