Beginners Guide to Diffusing Essential Oils
Are you new to the world of essential oils and feeling a little overwhelmed with all the options out there? One of the easiest and most effective ways to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine is through diffusion. Diffusing not only fills your home with a pleasant aroma, but it can also promote relaxation, improve mood, and enhance overall wellness. 

Here's a beginner's guide to diffusing essential oils:

1. Choose the right diffuser: There are many types of diffusers on the market, such as ultrasonic, nebulizing, and heat diffusers. Ultrasonic diffusers use water and are great for dispersing oils into the air, while nebulizing diffusers use no water and are great for a concentrated aroma. Heat diffusers can be good for smaller spaces, but can also alter or lessen the therapeutic properties of the oils. Let me help you choose a diffuser that fits your needs and budget.

2. Select your essential oils: Young Living has a wide variety of essential oils to choose from, each with its own unique properties and benefits. For relaxation, try Lavender or Frankincense. For an energy boost, try Peppermint or some of the citrus oils like Orange and YL's Citrus Fresh blend. Do your research (ask me for help!) and experiment with different oils and oil blends from Young Living to find the ones that work best for you.

3. Add water and oils: If you're using an ultrasonic diffuser like the Desert Mist or Aria, add water to the fill line and then add a few drops of your chosen essential oil(s). For nebulizing diffusers like the Duet Diffuser, place the oil bottle(s) directly into the diffuser.

4. Turn on and enjoy: Follow the instructions for your diffuser and turn it on. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the aroma and therapeutic properties of your chosen oils.

5. Clean your diffuser: Be sure to clean your diffuser regularly to prevent mold and bacteria buildup. Follow the instructions provided with your diffuser for proper cleaning. Young Living offers a Diffuser Cleaning Kit that's great to have on hand for this. 

Diffusing essential oils is a simple, yet effective way to incorporate the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy into your daily routine. Try diffusing different oils at different times of the day to find a combination that works best for you. With a little experimentation, you'll soon find yourself feeling happier, healthier, and more relaxed.

Here's an extra idea that I think you'll find interesting: add a Business Essentials Kit in to your order for just $1. Along with the materials in the kit itself, you'll receive your own affiliate link to share with friends and family. Now, when someone notices your diffuser in your home or is convinced by how much you're loving it that they want one for themselves, you can share your affiliate link with them and earn cash back instead of account credits.
