You probably already know how much I love essential oils. I talk about them all the time, and for the past couple of years I have been slowly working on becoming a certified aromatherapist. I even started this blog primarily to share about my love of essential oils (though I may have veered off-track now and then with other healthy living content).
But something I’ve discovered over the years of using essential oils – not everyone loves them like I do. In fact, my husband is not a big fan of the diffuser in our bedroom. So I have had to find creative ways to use essential oils to benefit my own health, while minimizing his exposure to too many different scents.
One of my new favorite ways to do that is with a handheld personal diffuser. I have found that with one of these pocket-sized gadgets at my bedside, I can benefit from using essential oils, even in the middle of the night with my husband asleep beside me, without any complaints from him. In fact, I have kept a personal inhaler for that purpose with a blend of lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary, to help with my frequent migraine pain. I much prefer the diffuser now though.
If you have a child with ADHD who has trouble sleeping, I highly recommend giving one to them with Attention Assist. And if you homeschool, you’ll want to keep one handy to use for a multitude of reasons.
Here are some of the benefits of using a personal diffuser:
It’s Aromatherapy on the Go
A personal handheld diffuser is easy to take with you wherever you’re going. Keep one in the car, at your office, or in your bedside table. Anywhere you will be, is a good place to keep one of these handy personal diffusers.
A handheld personal diffuser is small enough to fit in your pocket. So add one to your purse, diaper bag, briefcase, gym bag, backpack . . . or your pocket.
All you need is a bit of tap water (your water bottle water will do) and a bottle of your favorite essential oil or blend. With the convenience of a battery operated system, that charges quickly, you can literally use a handheld personal diffuser almost anywhere.
Low Price Point
At around $15, a handheld personal diffuser is affordable for most anyone. In fact, you may be able to purchase more than one, so you’re never without a quick dose of aromatherapy.
Here are some more helpful ways to use your handheld personal diffuser:
Keep one in your child’s room with some Lavender essential oil to help encourage restful sleep.
Keep one in your gym bag with a citrus oil, such as Orange, Grapefruit, or Lime to give you a boost of energy while exercising.
Keep one in your car with a calming blend such as Calming or Tranquility to help you stay calm while driving in traffic.
Keep one in your desk drawer with some Rosemary essential oil to help you stay focused while working.
Keep one in your purse with some Tummy Rub to ward off an unexpected upset tummy.
Keep one in your medicine cabinet with Breathe Ease to help when you feel congested or have a stuffy nose or cough.
Pack one in your carry-on with Immune Strength to boost your immune system when traveling.
As you can see, a personal diffuser can be used almost anywhere for almost any reason you might want to diffuse essential oils.
My favorite personal diffuser is the Handheld Personal Diffuser from Rocky Mountain Oils. This USB-charged, pocket-sized diffuser allows to you use aromatherapy anywhere you go. The charge lasts for a long time, and it diffuses for 60 seconds each time you turn it on – perfect for a quick boost of essential oils in the car, at home, at the gym, or at the office. It’s easy enough for your children to use, and they will love having their own personal diffuser! There are many essential oils safe for your children over age 2 to use.
