So you just got your kit, and the first thing you're wondering is "what do I diffuse together to make my house smell nice?!"
I know that some of you are cautious about experimenting & blending oils together in the diffuser. Let me first just tell you: I've never gone wrong with a diffuser blend! Don't be a afraid to try new things - you never know what amazing blends you'll discover!
Sometimes the most unexpected oils smell amazing together! If you find some of the oils to be too strong in the diffuser, try diffusing only 1-2 drops. Or, add a couple drops of lemon to the diffuser with those overpowering oils, to help lighten the aroma.
More than just a good smell...
Yes, that's right! Essential oils DO make your house smell amazing, but their superpowers go above and beyond making your home smell fresh and inviting.
When we inhale through the nose, airborne molecules interact with the olfactory organs and, almost immediately, the brain. A variety of receptor sites are reached, one of which is the limbic system. The limbic system is the primary centre for our emotional life. Molecules inhaled through the nose or mouth are also carried to the lungs, and interact with the respiratory system. Thus, inhaled essential oils can affect the body through several systems and pathways.
Overall: Essential oils support and balance our endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and reproductive systems. They are friendly to us, but hostile to bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, and toxins.
The healing power of essential oils lies in the constituents that it contains, and their vibrational energy. Each essential oil is composed of 200 – 500 natural chemical constituents, and can therefore be helpful in healing many different symptoms in the body. No two oils are the same. The healing power of an essential oil cannot be manufactured in a lab, but must be harvested from the highest quality of plants.

So, here are a couple of ideas for what you could diffuse in your home based on the oils the come in the Young Living Canada Premium Starter Kit! Please be sure to comment on this blog post with your favourite diffuser blends!
Considering using essential oils instead of plug-ins, Febreze, Glade, or Air Wick?
Many people use air freshener plug-ins and aerosol sprays to cover up odours and make their home smell "fresh". The unfortunate thing about these synthetic aromas, is that they are actually quite dangerous and detrimental to our health. Just last month 5 students at a school in Baltimore were hospitalized after being exposed to a pumpkin spice plug-in air freshener in their school. Why would we expose ourselves (and pollute the environment!) with these toxic synthetics, when there are 100% pure essential oils that are actually beneficial to our health?? I can't think of a better reason to start using essential oils!
