We spend a lot of time indoors during the winter months. All those weeks spent huddling from the cold in our sealed homes and offices aren’t that different from being trapped in the recycled air of an airplane cabin. Think of all that exhaled air you’re re-breathing – the need to purify, cleanse and refresh the atmosphere around you becomes critical. Fortunately, you can do so easily with essential oils.
First, arm yourself with pure Aura Cacia essential oils. Top choices for essential oils with air-purifying or cleansing benefits include:
Next, create a blend for greatest effect. Blending and usage tips:
- A mix of oils will be more interesting and aromatically effective.
- Combine a leafy/herbal oil, a resinous/woody oil and a fresh citrus oil to achieve a balanced aroma.
- Use the blend in a plug-in or portable diffuser, or combine with water in a spray mister bottle to powerfully purify and freshen the airspace around you.
Experiment to find your favorite blend, or follow one of these easy recipes:
Purifying Eucalyptus Diffusion
5 drops eucalyptus
5 drops frankincense
5 drops lemon
Balsam Fir Needle Purifying Room Spray
8 drops balsam fir needle
8 drops myrrh
8 drops sweet orange
2-4 ounces water
Place oils and water in a spray-mister bottle, shake vigorously and mist airspace in room. Repeat as needed.
