Diffusing activates the powerful plant constituents found in Young Living essential oils. Whether in your family room, office, kitchen, or bedroom, diffusing essential oils can help eliminate odors and provide an uplifting mood in your home.

    My daughter (in-law) is in her last year of RNschool. She uses Stress-a-way and Treasure of the Season to help her focus when studying. Just got her a locket, but professor in toughest class has let her put it on a Q-tip during exams! (YL oils to the rescue! My words, my opinion–100%! Works for her, may not for others, but we love it!!!)

    I like a blend of 5 drops stress away and 2 peppermint and 2 lemon to diffuse at work. Every likes the fresh scent and things have been much happier and calmer since I have started that.

    When I’m feeling a bit stuffed up or feeling a cold coming on, I like to diffuse Raven and Eucalyptus globulus. It’s also my wife’s very favorite, cold or not!

    I love using the diffuser, I use mine almost continuously during the cold and flu season, to freshen the air in the house and so much more! I have one of the older models and have been using it for about 15 years. Would love to upgrade!
