With the toll that quarantine has taken on our mental health, it’s important to take some time to care for yourself. An essential oil diffuser is a great way to do just that while also making your home smell amazing. Plus, with Christmas right around the corner, their array of benefits make them the perfect gift for your loved ones or as a treat to yourself!

Stress & anxiety reduction

One of the main purposes of essential oil diffusers is to reduce your stress and anxiety. Essential oils blends from Les Vides Anges, tap into the part of your brain that creates unpleasant feelings and help you relax. I’m sure we could all use that in these uncertain times. Each brand has a variety of oils to choose from, so you can personalize your selection. I have a Saje diffuser. They offer a variety of different essential oil packages such as “Relaxation Room”, “Good Cheer” and “Well Balanced”.


Another important oil diffuser benefit is they help you sleep better. Essential oils, like lavender and chamomile, help calm your nervous system and allow you to get a good night’s sleep. There are also diffusers, such as the ArtNaturals Diffuser, that act as a white noise machine as well so you can reach peak relaxation. If one of your loved ones has a tendency to toss and turn, look no further for some gift inspiration!

Boosting your immune system

With cold and flu season in full effect, this is another crucial benefit. They have a range of bacteria and fungus fighting properties as well as providing a boost for your immune system. Saje even has an antibacterial diffuser blend geared towards fighting flu symptoms through the calming scents of eucalyptus, cinnamon and myrrh. The ultimate form of self-care is made possible through these diffusers combining relaxation and a little boost for your health.

These are just three of the many benefits a diffuser can offer you. Diffusers have also been shown to repel insects with certain scents, improve respiratory health as well as increase energy levels, making them the perfect investment for yourself or a loved one. Happy holidays!
