Using Essential Oils Aromatically
Using essential oils aromatically in a diffuser, is the fastest way to get them into your system. Inhaling the oil, or the aroma of the oil, can be a powerful way to affect memory, hormones, and emotions through the olfactory system (our sense of smell).

Inhalation of oils can also be a quick and effective way to affect the sinuses, larynx, bronchial tubes, and lungs. (doTERRA’s EasyAir Blend provides great respiratory relief, and is very effective when used in a diffuser.)
Certain essential oils, when diffused, have been found to reduce the amount of airborne contaminants. We don’t fear cold and flu season anymore in my home. As soon as someone starts feeling ill, I’ll diffuse doTERRA’s OnGuard, the protective blend. The combination of Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils help stop virus and bacteria from spreading.
Whether you want to change your mood, or just change the smell in your home, using essential oils aromatically in a diffuser is the way to go. Here are some of my favorite diffuser blends.
