If you’re looking to freshen your home naturally, look no further than an essential oil diffuser that you can use with your favourite essential oils. What I love about a diffuser is that you can use a different scent every day! There are uplifting oils to increase energy as well as oils that can help you to relax!
Best of all, pure essential oils do not contain any harmful chemicals that are found in many conventional air fresheners! They have no ill effects on your respiratory system and are safe to use around your children and your pets.
So if you haven’t already, why not make the switch today? I promise you will never look back!
So which is the best essential oil diffuser? To be honest, that depends on your preference. Do you need a diffuser with a strong mist or one that can run quietly all night? Do you like pretty lights to set the mood in the room or one that is easy to maintain?
If you answered yes to any of those, then I got the perfect solution from Young Living: The Desert Mist Diffuser or the Dewdrop Diffuser. Both have multiple settings to meet your needs for every occasion! Here are some key features:
- Three mist settings to choose from:
- High - This setting will run for about 5 hours. It’s great for times when you have friends and family over or times when you want the home or office to smell the very best!
- Low - This setting will mist gently for about 8 hours. It’s perfect for those 8-hour workdays at the office!
- Intermittent - This setting will mist for about a minute and then shut off for a minute, thus allowing it to go on for about 10 hours. This is a great setting for the evening and night to help you get settled into a restful sleep, and then maintain that sleep until you’re ready to get going the next day!
- It has 11 different light settings, making it great for romantic evenings, or to use as a calm night light.
- It runs quietly, so you don’t even know it’s there.
- Maintenance is easy; simply wipe the interior to prevent water residue from building up.
- It is inexpensive to purchase!
You can purchase the diffusers separately, or get them in a starter kit with 11 popular essential oils to get you started on the path of clean living.

Essential Oil Safety Tips
Although the essential oils from Young Living are pure, they are highly concentrated and therefore, not intended for internal use. The only exceptions are the + oils in Canada and the Vitality oils in the US, both of which are labelled as food flavourings and safe to use in all your favourite recipes.
Always dilute your oils with a carrier oil before applying them to your skin, as some oils may be irritating to the skin. Young Living carries a carrier oil called the “V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex”. I love this because it is non-greasy and feels great on the skin. Other great carrier oils include fractionated coconut oil, almond oil, olive or any other cooking oil.
If you are new to a particular oil, start with a small amount to see how your body reacts and work your way up to stronger doses if you like.
Do not apply oils around mucous membranes, eyes, ears and other sensitive areas.
Always check your labels before using as different oils have different effects. Some oils, such as citrus, are photosensitive and can cause skin irritation if you apply them before going out into the sun. Other oils, also known as “hot oils”, can burn the skin if undiluted.
