We’ve all been there. The day starts off bad, then gets worse. Your work’s deadline got pushed up a week. You spilled coffee on your favorite shirt. Nothing could turn this day around.

Then, with just a couple drops of mysterious liquid and some water, the room’s mood seems to lift. A new energy enters, refreshing your senses. The day seems a little bit better.

No, it’s not magic. You’ve just used a diffuser to aerate our amazing Riverina Thomas essential oil or our Miss Katherine essential oil into your living room.

Using an oil diffuser in tangent with aromatherapy is a match made in heaven. In fact, they’re made for each other! Aromatherapy, if you don’t know already, is the utilization of scents to manipulate your mood. It can be as simple as lighting a candle, or carrying around a scent that you know will calm and ground you.

A few benefits of lavender essential oil diffused in your home include stress relief, disinfecting the home, acting as a natural insect repellent, encouraging sleep, and of course, an amazing smell.

Lavender essential oil is especially renowned for its benefits, and is one of the most popular essential oils. We like to think that our 100% pure lavender essential oil is a bit more refined than other lavender oil you can find. Here’s our blog post talking a bit about why our pure lavender essential oil is special. In short, we only put one variety of lavender plant into our essential oils, out of 300+ potential lavender varieties to ensure that you know exactly what you’re using.

Though everyone is familiar with the standard lavender smell, our pure essential oil has depth and notes that are not present in other lavender oils. The Riverina Thomas is Carriage House Lavender’s pride and joy. It’s known for a high-quality fragrance that is superb; it is even better when paired with a diffuser. Our Miss Katherine lavender plants yield a beautiful, pink flower. It yields a mild, sweet, aromatic fragrance. When used in a diffuser, Miss Katherine will result in a softer and milder experience compared to other cultivars. It is the perfect essential oil for someone looking to use a diffuser in a close environment.

Whether you’re using an electric oil diffuser or a ceramic one, the principle is the same: add a few drops of lavender essential oil to water, and a heat source disperses the oil molecules throughout the room, spreading this intoxicating scent. An electric oil diffuser scents the room with a cool mist, and some even change colors! If you’re using a reed diffuser, of course, simply put the reed into a container holding your oil.

Establishing a nighttime routine can also help with sleep hygiene. If you diffuse lavender oil every time you prepare for bed, it will encourage sleep even more.

diffusers are one of the easiest ways to use essential oil, and are an easy introduction into how to use our 100% pure essential lavender oil. You only have to try it once to fall in love. One day you might even be as obsessed with lavender as we are!
