6 of The Best Essential Oils

6 best Eos

Aromatherapy is quite popular these days, and it is one way to use many of the essential oils out there. When looking at the best essential oils for diffusers, it is important to note the individual benefits they provide. You can visit an alternative health practitioner, or you can buy your own diffuser and oils for home use. Here we discuss some of the most popular essential organic oils for aromatherapy.

Essential oils are quite strong, however, so that caution on how much to use isn’t just about lavender oil, as below, but it is about all essential oils. Used topically, most natural oils need to be diluted. Instead of diluting them for topical use, however, here we will discuss diffusing them. Are you ready to discover some more of the popular essential organic oils to use with your new diffuser?

Lavender Essential Oil Lavender

While there is a myriad of benefits to discover regarding aromatherapy, relaxation is certainly one of the main goals. One of the best oils to use for relaxation purposes is lavender oil. You may have heard of people putting lavender oil drops on their bed sheets and pillowcases. Instead of doing that, you may add a few drops to your diffuser or try MONQ’s personal essential oil diffuser relieve that contains lavender. This essential oil is known for promoting relaxation, comfort and has even been found in studies to help people struggling with insomnia. Go easy on the lavender oil, however, because too much of it can give you a headache.

Peppermint plantPeppermint Essential Oil

Some of the essential oils smell better than others and are known for simply providing a great fragrance, on top of their aromatherapy benefits. Do you have a cold? If your nasal passages are ‘stopped up’ or could use some help with respiratory issues, peppermint oil is a great choice. On top of that, peppermint essential oil is reported to help with digestion, too. Plus, remember how too much lavender oil and other types of organic oils can cause headaches? Well, peppermint oil has the opposite effect. You might not want to go off using tremendous quantities of peppermint essential oil, but the point is that it frequently helps people get rid of a headache.

Frankincense Essential OilFrankincense

Many people count on aromatherapy to help improve their mood for the day. This, of course, is a common benefit of relaxation. Take the stress away and relax with some frankincense essential oil. Not only is it great for helping to improve your mood and reduce anxiety, but it is also good for treating symptoms of inflammation. The third benefit of frankincense oil is that it is an immune system booster, and you might want to discover its topical benefits, too.

Cinnamon sticksCinnamon Essential Oil

Do you love cinnamon rolls? Cinnamon as a spice can be used in so many ways, and cinnamon oil has many health benefits. Used in a diffuser, cinnamon essential oil also helps to fight inflammatory symptoms, just like frankincense oil. It is also said to help people fight symptoms of depression.1 Not only that, but it is a festive scent for the holiday season, and you can add other oils to the mix to get an even better scent. For instance, adding clove oil is commonly done!

Rosemary Essential OilRosemary

This next combination packs a triple punch, however, and it involves two of the natural oils that we’ve already discussed and added a third. First, you have peppermint oil. Second, you have cinnamon oil. The third oil to add to the mix is rosemary oil. Rosemary is certainly a very popular essential organic oil and can be added to make this trio.

What does this trio of essential oils do for you? You may count on them to combine to give you the mental clarity you need for that big final exam, for instance. Just add some drops of peppermint, rosemary and cinnamon oil to your diffuser, and get to studying before that test. It’s not just for taking exams though, as it’s good for clarity and focus on any job you need to get done.

LemonsLemon Essential Oil

This next mixture is going to first take you back to the beginning of this article. It is time to bring the lavender oil back out once again. You are going to add some peppermint oil, too. Once again there is a third essential oil to add to the mix, and it is lemon oil. It was mentioned earlier that peppermint oil can help you if you have a cold or respiratory issue. Well, this mixture of three important essential oils for diffusers can help alleviate many allergy symptoms.

Let’s talk about yet another mixture that includes lavender oil, but this time you are going to add two new oils. You need bergamot oil and geranium oil. This has a reputation of being one of the best mood-boosting essential oil combinations, and it is popular to use for planned social gatherings. When making the mixture, we’d encourage you to use a little extra bergamot oil in comparison with the other two.

Cinnamon and ginger are a great combination, right? They are a great combination of two spices, and they are a great combination of two oils. You may be surprised at the third oil we will recommend adding to the mix, however. It’s orange oil! Orange oil is great, but would you have guessed to add it to cinnamon oil and ginger oil? Among other benefits, this combination of the best essential oils for diffusers is reportedly great to use to provide a cozy wintertime atmosphere.

Final Thoughts

Not only should you enjoy using different essential organic oils in your diffuser, but you can tell that it’s a good idea to make mixtures. You might even come up with your own unique mixture that you like the best for certain types of situations. Just make sure you do know the actual benefits. It helps to know what oils work best together, and how to dilute them.

Now that you know some of the best essential oils to use individually, and you know some of the best mixtures as well, it may be time to use that desktop diffuser. Or, in the alternative, you may wish to purchase an already blended mixture, whether in a bottle or in a personal essential oil diffuser. At MONQ we believe that blends of essential oils are commonly better than individual ingredients, in part because it more closely replicates the environment of our ancestors.
