No Diffuser? No Problem! 5 Easy Ways to Diffuse Essential Oils Without a Diffuser

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

It seems no one knows what in the world to do with essential oils unless they've invested in a diffuser; we’re here to debunk that myth!

You don’t need an expensive nebulizer to get the natural aromas of The Aromatherapist Essential Oils and Synergies into your home, office or car. Don’t get us wrong - we love our diffusers. However, sometimes the added moisture a diffuser brings with it isn’t the most ideal scenario for your environment. For example, if you live in a humid climate (ie; Ontario in the summer!) or a basement apartment, you may not want to create more humidity in the air.

It isn’t the moisture that diffuses essential oils, it’s the heat. Not too much heat as to kill the active biochemicals, just enough to create vapour.

Here are some easy (and inexpensive) ways to expose your Aromatherapist Essential Oils and Synergies to heat, without a diffuser…

4 Reasons Not To Hop On the DIY Bandwagon

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

We'd like to think the growing popularity of DIY-everything has more to do with a desire for self sufficiency & a smaller ecological footprint, and less to do with everyone's Pinterest addiction; but we'd probably be wrong. 

Regardless of the motive, we're loving it! Working with high quality essential oils to create your own products means you can fulfill your physical needs (combatting blemishes, signs of aging, spider veins etc.) as well as your emotional needs (relaxation, restful sleep, caffeine free energy boost etc.) quickly, easily and naturally. It's also a great way to minimize your ecological footprint (say goodbye to wasteful packaging), save some dollars and learn about Aromatherapy.

We often run into people who have some serious cynicism about joining the DIY Movement...

"Why would I make products when I can just go buy them?"
