Everyone’s home develops odors that they don’t like at times. Sometimes, it’s leftover smells from cooking, a smelly pet, or even a bad smell that drifted in from outside when the windows were left open.
When you notice the smells, you don’t always want to light a candle or reach for a bottle of air freshener. That’s where a well-mixed essential oil blend comes in. However, if you’ve never used essential oils before, it can get a bit confusing. In this blog, we’ll go into how to use essential oils and how to choose them.
Skip the Synthetics and Additives
Some essential oils are extracted from plants that aren’t easy to get essential oils out of, so many companies will add synthetic oils and additives to their essential oil blends so that they can be sold at less expensive prices. While they can match the smell somewhat accurately, it’s not 100%. You want to search for essential oils that are free of additives and synthetics for the best results.

With over 90 essential oils to choose from, it can become a bit overwhelming to choose the right blend for you and your home. Some of the most popular are ones with a blend of musk, papyrus, and cardamom scents, but you need to choose the right ones for you. Other popular scents include lavender, eucalyptus, and lemon.
When it comes to choosing the most popular essential oils, however, it’s going to be according to the person and the scents that you enjoy wafting through your home.
How to Use Your Scent Diffuser
Just as there are different premade essential oil blends, there are also different types of scent diffusers. Whether you choose electric, reed, ceramic, or candle diffusers, they aren’t as hard to use as you might think.
Once you’ve chosen your diffuser, set it up on a level surface in the room you desire. Take the top off the diffuser, and then plug your power cord into the bottom of the diffuser. Make sure not to plug the power cord into the wall socket yet, and don’t switch on the diffuser.
Pour room temperature water up to your diffuser’s fill line, don’t overfill. Once you’ve added the water, add a few drops of your essential oil, usually three drops, according to the size of the diffuser, plug it in, turn it on, and enjoy the scent.
Some diffusers come with a timer, so you can use the diffuser to help you fall asleep at night. You can set the timer to go off at a certain time, so you don’t have to worry about the diffuser running out of water and catching fire.
