One of the main things I love about walking into a spa is the calming scent that fills the air. It's like instant relaxation before your spa treatment has even begun.
When I was younger, my sister used to burn incense sticks. It was all the rage back in the early 90's. To be honest, I would make fun of her for it. All these years later, I didn't realize that it was a form of aromatherapy... and now I love it, just in essential oil form.
I recently received the Gurunanda Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser, and honestly, I'm so in love.
Some of the benefits of this aromatherapy diffuser:
The diffuser itself is super lightweight. Even with water in it, which is enough for 2.5-5 hours of use, did not make it weighty.
Each essential oil box has a scratch and sniff sticker so that you can sample the fragrance before purchasing.
The diffuser lights up at the top - red, green and blue. You also have the option of turning the lights off.
The on/off button also controls the lights and diffusing time. Press once for lights and 2.5 hours of continuous mist. Press twice to turn off lights. Press three times for 5 hours of mist every 15 seconds without lights. Pressing 4 times turns it off.
Whichever amount of time you choose, the diffuser automatically shuts off after that alloted time.
The diffuser has a low level white noise hum to it, so it's a little relaxing to listen to.
The diffuser and the mist are not hot at all, so no worring about burns or it becoming humid in the room.
The best part is that once you put a small amount of water into the chamber and two drops of your preferred essential oil, and hit the button, the mist is literally immediate. I was blown away. Having only experience with units that have to heat up, I love the fact that the ultrasonic waves have zero start up time. Talk about instant gratification.
Since there is no heat involved, the integrity of the essential oils are not compromised.
Gurunanda has 9 blends of essential oils. I personally love Focus (especially needed on Monday mornings, rainy days and late afternoons.) Focus is a blend of lemongrass, rosemary, and citronella. I love lemongrass; it's even in my Silk Therapeutics Purely Smooth daily firming complex.
They also have Breathe Easy (eucalyptus, peppermint and lemon), which I plan to use when I'm congested or my allergies are acting up.
These oils are not just for the diffuser, but can also be used in your bath, mixed with a carrier oil and massaged onto your skin and made into a room spray.
