Diffusing FAQs!


 
Did you know that diffusing is one of the easiest health habits you can start?? Immune, sleep, respiratory, emotional support along with cleaning the air in your home…not to mention the incredible smell combinations you can create!! 
 
There are three major ways to use essential oils - topically (on your skin), ingesting, or aromatically (diffusing, or inhaling right from the bottle.) Diffusing is super effective for emotions, mental or respiratory support, rest and relaxation. 
 
All you need to start diffusing essential oils is a diffuser, a little bit of water, and some Young Living essential oils!
 
Each diffuser will have a fill line on the inside, so just add water to the fill line, add your oils of choice, replace the lid and turn on the diffuser. Instant transformation! You can place a diffuser virtually anywhere - your home, office, even your car! 
 
Feeling a little stressed with early morning traffic? Try Peppermint +Stress Away in an usb diffuser (https://amzn.to/3wo3Bxo) that sits right in your vehicle cup holder. 
 
Need some help calming your thoughts at bedtime? Lavender, Cedarwood & Vetiver are your friends. (Put your diffuser right by your bed!). 
 
Feeling a little stuffy? Diffuse Raven, Lemon and Frankincense (get extra oomph for diffusing while you shower - oils + steam!). 
 
Want a festive atmosphere without the toxins in wall plugs and candles? Fire up that diffuser with a seasonal scent! Cinnamon bark, Clove and Orange are great in the fall/winter, and we love Lavender, Lemon and Lime in the spring/summer!
 
Quick tip! If you don't have a diffuser or have access to a wall plug/USB outlet, grab a tissue or some cotton balls and drop a few drops of oil onto them. Place them in an air vent or under a seat in a vehicle or anywhere you can to create a passive diffuser! 
 

Are you wondering how breathing in some Lavender can change your mood??
 
Breathing the oils sends messages to your brain through your cranial nerves. The olfactory (sense of smell) cranial nerve ends in the brain right next to the organs of the limbic system - the system that controls mood, emotions and memory. So inhaling oils triggers that area of your brain, helping you rest, reset, and recharge. And diffusing is a great way to get the benefit of these oils for more than one individual! Play with combinations to find the ones you love and that are the most beneficial to you!
 

DIFFUSING FAQS
 
How long can I diffuse at a time?
 
I could have diffusers going in our home pretty much 24/7. In our large, open areas I  don't keep track of how long I diffuse. At bedtime I use the intermittent setting on the diffusers so they run all night long! If you are diffusing in a room where doors are closed (ie kids bedrooms), simply add less oils and use the intermittent setting. Don't overthink it!
 
How many drops do I use?
 
That will depend on your diffuser! Larger ones that cover more area will require more drops. Here are the current diffusers available from Young Living:
 
Duet diffuser uses no water, simply add the oil bottles of choice! 
 
Aria diffuser: 15-25 drops essential oil, covers about 430 sq. feet
 
Desert Mist diffuser: 8-12 drops essential oil, covers about 320 sq. feet
 
DewDrop and Rainstone diffusers: 5–8 drops of essential oil, covers approximately 320 sq. ft.
 
Sprout the Puppy diffuser: 8-20 drops essential oil

Do I need to clean my diffuser?
 
It is recommended that you clean your diffuser for best results. 
 
For the Aria, simply wipe it down after every use with a clean, dry cloth + wash the glass bowl either by hand or in the dishwasher as needed. 
 
For other diffusers, it is recommended that you clean the ultrasonic plate and lid after each use. 
If oil begins to build up on the ultrasonic plate, gently wipe it off using a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol, and if oil begins to build up on the lid, gently wipe it off using mild soap and water only.
 

DIFFUSER SETTINGS
 
Did you know you can turn the lights on and off and change the colors on the diffusers? Or that the kids' diffusers can also double as a sound machine? Depending on the diffuser simply press the button on the left to cycle through the light options.
 
Most diffusers also have 1-2 intermittent modes, which can be changed by pressing the button on the right to cycle through the options! This is one of our favorite ways to have oils diffusing while we sleep.
 
Check out the manual that comes with your diffuser or the product link above for specific info on each one!

What's your favorite diffuser blend??

Love those fine lines? Those gut issues?

Let me ask you…
 
Would you like to reduce the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles in a little as 3 weeks??
 
Want to strengthen your skin, hair and nails from the inside out?
 
Are you looking for a bioavailable, tasteless, prebiotic fiber that balances your gut microbiome…and is free from all the artificial fillers, flavors, colors and sweeteners??
 
Yes? Well, then, let me introduce you to Inner Beauty Collagen…free with your eligible order through Jan. 31, but available to order anytime!

 
Collagen is THE protein of your body. It's the most abundant protein and is the crucial support piece for your hair, skin, nails, joints, muscles and gut lining. Collagen also helps with melatonin levels (your natural sleep hormone!), antioxidant levels (so important for overall health and longevity), and a healthy liver. Unfortunately, collagen levels decrease as you get older (starting as early as age 25!), but as it decreases, we actually need it the most (joint needs, skin and hair trouble, brittle nails, etc.). As you age your natural collagen also becomes more fragmented and fragile, so it doesn't hold up as well as it used to. Because of this, adding a high-quality collagen supplement to your health routine is a great way to help your body replenish collagen levels and promote its own collagen production.

INNER BEAUTY COLLAGEN TESTIMONIES
I am loving it. I had brain surgery over 17yrs ago and the left side of my face has been swollen since from cartilage & scar tissue. (I'm assuming).  The swelling has gone down tremendously. My face has got thinner and the lines on my forehead, which wasn't a lot, but they have lightened up. I really don't think the left side of my face from my surgery will ever go away but if it's inflammation or swelling whatever it is with it just going down, I am so thankful for because that is one of my insecurities. - Angel L.

I am on Day 24. I have noticed a difference in my forehead lines. I have also noticed a difference in the softness of my skin especially on my hands—I wish I had taken pictures of my hands at the beginning. - Noelle M.

I can already see more even skin tone and less wrinkles around my eyes. And my skin over all is less dry. And I would have to say my pores on my face seem smaller - Janell R.
My hair is growing so long and so fast!!! - Katie F.
