Essential Oils for Aromatherapy/Diffusers/Nebulizers 6 pcs/set
There is a powerful connection between aromatherapy and Feng Shui as both disciplines work on an energy level to create a positive shift in one’s well-being. For Feng Shui purposes, we use the way of diffusing essential oils into the air to achieve the desired quality of energy. This can be done in several ways:
1. You can use an aroma mist to easily spray essential oils into the air. An aroma mist is basically a blend of one or several pure essential oils in purified water.
2. A diffuser/nebulizer, electric or candle, is an easy and constant way to diffuse the pleasant aroma of essential oils into the air.
3. Aromatherapy candles are an easy and convenient way to add an aroma to the air, just be sure that the oils used in your candle are pure oils and not synthetic fragrances. You can also experiment with incense made with essential oils, even though this is the least preferred way to experience the healing power of oils because most incense on the market is made with artificial fragrances.Scents and aromatherapy are used in Feng Shui to encourage balance and harmony, and to trigger a specific emotional response. Scents can be released into the indoor environment in a variety of ways, including essential oils, candles, incense, room sprays, and aromatherapy machines. According to Freud, the quickest way to trigger an emotional response is with scent; using fragrance and scents in Feng Shui is one simple way you can help awaken and direct these emotions.
The Benefits of Aromatherapy
In Feng Shui, aromas and scents also have a powerful effect on the flow of chi, or energy, in your home or office. Positive scents not only raise the chi, but also can relate directly to specific emotions. For example, the scent of lavender can relax you, the scent of jasmine can put you in a romantic mood, the scent of juniper will cleanse you, the scent of clary sage will make you feel secure, and the scent of grapefruit stimulates your memory.

Top 6 essential Oils
1. Lavender. Lavender oil has this yummy, fresh floral scent with a dash of sweetness and herby aroma. I find it completely intoxicating. On top of it smelling amazing, it is also the most versatile of all essential oils. Therapeutically, lavender oil has a calming effect which does wonders for those suffering from anxiety. Medicinally, it can be used as an antiseptic and pain reliever to soothe minor burns, insect bites and stings, and muscle or joint pain. This is also a great scent to use for savasana during yoga practice; one breath and you’ll feel blissful.
2. Peppermint. Peppermint oil has a very stimulating yet soothing aroma and is what I like to call “mother nature’s Icy Hot” due to its main constituent, menthol. This stuff is amazing. Not only is it effective in arousing your mental sharpness but it can be used to relieve congestion, headaches, migraines, digestive problems, and soothe achy muscles. I typically use it to get rid of headaches by rubbing a tiny bit on my temples or to relieve muscle soreness by diluting it with a carrier oil, like grape seed oil, and rubbing it into whatever is sore.
3. Eucalyptus. This oil has a very fresh and clean aroma that is sure to open your airways up. Eucalyptus oil is anti-everything, and for once that’s a good thing. It is a natural antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. It is best used for respiratory problems like colds, coughs, asthma, and congestion in addition to wounds, muscle pain, mental exhaustion, dental care, and skin care. I love to drop a little of this in a hot bath when I am feeling congested; it’s a great natural way to clear my nasal passages up.
4. Lemongrass. With its uplifting and fresh scent, lemon oil can help get rid of bad vibes and increase concentration and mental awareness. It is also an antiseptic and antifungal making it a wonderful fix for scrapes, cuts, and other open wounds. Feeling less than inspired to get your flow on? Rub a few drops on your chest and throat while you set your intention and you’ll be flowin’ in no time!
5. Tea Tree. A widely popular form of alternative medicine, tea tree oil is awesome! Not only is tea tree oil’s astringent properties great for alleviating oily secretions of the skin – think oily face & scalp issues – but it’s terpinen content soothes minor wounds without irritation. I love to add a few drops to my shampoo prior to washing; it leaves my scalp squeaky clean.
6. Sweet Orange is one of the most popular of essential oils within aromatherapy. The aroma of Orange Oil is cheerful, uplifting and helps to improve the aroma of a stale-smelling or smoky room. (Lemon is even better for diffusing in smoky rooms). Orange Oil has become a popular ingredient within a wide assortment of natural (and some not-so-natural) household cleaning products. Some people can’t tolerate citrus essential oils, so be prudent when diffusing Orange Oil around others, but overall, Sweet Orange Oil is a winner with children and adults alike.
