Benefits Of An Essential Oil Humidifier
You would think, living in Florida, the last thing I would want in my house is a humidifier. And I admit, it does sound a little silly. But when I started hearing about all the benefits of a humidifier and the many different ways in which they can help you, I really started wanting one. I added it to my Christmas list and thankfully, that is one of the items my sweet fiancé got for me. I’ve been playing around with it ever since and I’m really loving it. I wanted to share my experience with you in case you have heard of these too and are curious.
Humidifiers are usually something you break out of the closet when you’re sick. And that is one of the main benefits of them. Humidifiers can help ease your sinuses, soothe your voice, and reduce nosebleeds. Most of those things are caused by dry air, so adding moisture into the air (especially while you sleep) can help alleviate those symptoms. Speaking of sleeping, it can also minimize snoring and make your skin softer. But it’s not only good for you, adding that little bit of moisture in the air is also great for houseplants.
This particular one that I have is by Radha Beauty and can be found on Amazon. It is incredibly affordable for what it is at only $20 and has 7 different color settings, some of my favorite being white, pink, and light blue. It’s very easy to use, but maintaining it and keeping it clean is very important. It needs to be cleaned after each use to prevent essential oil build or mold from the water. This one will stay on for four hours at a time and I keep it on a 30 second setting, which means that it mists for 30 seconds and stays off for 30 seconds for the entire four hours.
Besides this just being a humidifier, it is also made to be used with essential oils. I haven’t ever really gotten much into essential oils until recently, but they are just as good for you as a humidifier is. Adding essential oils into the humidifier can help alleviate, soothe, and reduce cold/flu symptoms as well as help relax you to sleep. If you’re using it during the day, the essential oils can work to brighten your mood and allow you to focus. Different scents have different purposes. I started with just a few that I found from Walmart, but also really love the selection at Earthbound stores.
I am so happy with this essential oil diffuser humidifier and have been using it every single night. It’s very quiet, so it won’t bother you while you’re trying to sleep. Although you could also leave it on a different setting instead of the 30 second increments to have some soft white background noise. If you’ve tried one of these before, I’d love to hear about your experience! Also, leave me a comment in the section below letting me know your favorite place to find essential oils!
