Essential oils have steadily grown in popularity over the last few years as diffusers become favored over candles. Walking into a space that smells like warm cider and donuts on a fall day is such a comforting experience, but the chemicals that enter the air from traditional candles or even soy wax melts can be concerning. Extended exposure to air contaminated with particles from burning candles may even cause long term health issues in the heart and lungs. This is why we love essential oil diffusers! There are endless scents and blends that can be made for diffusers, without the risk of breathing in potentially harmful chemicals from smoke and wax. In autumn, we have a few favorite essential oil blends that really make us feel at home, so we wanted to share them with you!
