Essential oils not only create wonderful aromas in your home, they offer a variety of potential therapeutic health benefits!
When I learned that bacteria, mold, viruses, germs and odor can’t live in the presence of many essential oils, I started diffusing a thieves oil blend in my home.
I love the smell! But then again – I love the smell of so many different oils and combinations.

There’s just no reason to burn synthetic scented candles or spray potentially toxic air fresheners, when you can diffuse 100% pure essences from plants and botanicals into the air.
I was so excited when Natural Healthy Concepts started carrying these Now Foods Ultrasonic Wooden Oil Diffusers. They are so much more affordable than the DoTerra or Young Living diffusers – and they are practically the same thing!
But, there’s nothing quite like the advanced atomization technology of an ultrasonic diffuser.
It uses high-frequency vibrations to create a cool, ultra-fine aromatherapy mist that actually maintains the integrity and holistic properties of the natural extracts you put in it.
Plus, this one is attractive, BPA-Free, color changing, super easy to clean, extremely quiet, very safe and it shuts off by itself after eight hours!
You just need some essential oils, a diffuser and some water and you can start creating a soothing, therapeutic atmosphere in your home – especially during the holiday season. It’s super easy!
- Always be sure to research if the specific oils you are using are safe for children under 10 years of age.
Get yourself a diffuser and give some of these essential oils recipes a try during the holidays. Or even make your own healthy-to-breathe room spray for bathroom – or give it as a gift!
