Diffusing Essential Oils To Relieve Stress And Anxiety In Your Home!

Aromatherapy is a great way to help relieve stress and anxiety in your home by diffusing essential oils. But what are aromatherapy diffusers?  Why should you be diffusing essential oils?  Well, as it turns out, essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their healing properties. So now that we know what they are, let’s get into the specifics of how to use them! Below are some of our favorite essential oils to diffuse in your home and why each one works so well.*

Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea tree essential oil has a long list of uses. It can be used as an antiseptic and antibacterial, which makes it great for preventing skin infections and acne. Tea Tree oil is also good for treating eczema, psoriasis, insect bites and even dandruff! Diffusing essential oils like tea tree essential oil can help with colds and flu symptoms like coughing or congestion.*

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil is a great oil to diffuse when you need to focus, or if you have a headache. It can also help with nausea and indigestion.*

This minty essential oil works as a natural decongestant, which makes it the perfect choice for anyone with cold or congestion. If you’re struggling with stress, peppermint has been shown to increase mental alertness and focus your attention on one thing at a time without being overly stimulating—making it perfect for those days when your mind keeps wandering off into other thoughts!*

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil is a great way to brighten your mood. It has a bright, uplifting aroma that can help you feel more positive and increase your energy levels.*

Lemon essential oil is also a natural cleanser that can be used for cleaning surfaces in your home or on the go. You can use it around the house to clean counters, floors and windowsills or take it with you when traveling so you have something easy to use wherever you go!*

Finally, lemon essential oil has been shown to help people sleep better and longer because of how it affects serotonin levels in the brain—the same neurotransmitter that makes us feel happy when we’re awake!*

Orange Essential Oil

Orange essential oil is an uplifting and energizing oil that can help combat depression and anxiety, as well as assist with sleep issues. It’s also known to improve digestion.*

Orange essential oil is wonderful for diffusing during the winter months when you need a little sunshine on your skin, but it’s also perfect for diffusing any time of year if you want to feel happier and more energetic.*

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils. It has a sweet, floral fragrance that can be used to help relax you and relieve stress. Lavender also helps with insomnia by promoting sleep and reducing anxiety or depression.*

Although lavender is considered safe when used correctly, it should not be ingested or used undiluted on sensitive skin (including babies). A high concentration may cause irritation if applied topically, so it’s best to dilute with another carrier oil like coconut oil before applying to your body as a moisturizer or massage oil.*

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood essential oil is an oil that many people are familiar with. It’s a great oil for men, and it has many uses. Cedarwood essential oil can be used to help your skin, hair and immune system along with your respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system and more.  Please see this blog post for several great recipes for diffusing cedarwood essential oil.*

Clove Bud Essential Oil

Clove Bud essential oil is a powerful antiseptic that fights off bacterial and fungal infections. It can help with toothaches, muscle aches, headaches, colds—you name it! Clove bud essential oil also has antiviral properties so you can use it to boost your immune system. Cedarwood essential oil is wonderful in blends when you feel like you might be getting sick or if someone in your family is starting to get sick.*

We love clove bud essential oil because of its versatility; it smells amazing but doesn’t overpower anything else you put into your diffuser blend like other strong scents do (such as peppermint).*

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary essential oil is a great one to diffuse when you are feeling tired or need an energy boost. Rosemary helps improve memory and concentration, so it’s especially beneficial for those who find themselves struggling with the onslaught of information that comes with being a student. The anti-inflammatory properties in rosemary also make it useful for headaches and migraines, as well as muscle tension caused by stress or fatigue.*

Frankincense Essential Oil

If you’re looking to go beyond the basic diffuser and create a truly unique and relaxing experience, frankincense essential oil is a must. This oil has been used since ancient times and still remains one of the most popular essential oils today.*

It is known for its calming effects, which makes it perfect during meditation or yoga practice.  Additionally, frankincense can help reduce respiratory issues like asthma due to its ability to open up airways while also relieving congestion and coughing.  Please see our blog article on the 20 different uses for frankincense essential oil.*


Diffusing essential oils is a great way to create a spa-like atmosphere in your home. If you’re not familiar with diffusers, they are small devices that disperse essential oils into the air and often have timers so you can set them to turn on automatically.  There are several diffuser types and methods of diffusing essential oils into the air. Please see our article on “How to Diffuse Essential Oils” for additional information on diffusing.*

Essential oils are extracted from plants by distillation or expression. Some common uses include aromatherapy, helping you relax and sleep better, breathing easier during colds and flu season and even helping you cope with stress.*

If you choose to diffuse certain oils—like lavender or chamomile—at night before bedtime, make sure they’re non-toxic!  Always do your homework when using essential oils around pets.  Please see “Essential Oils for Dogs” for essential oils unsafe to use with your dog.*
