Another day, another quarantine purchase. This time it was something I’d had my eyes on for a while and just never pulled the trigger on getting one. I’m a candle lover. Particularly relaxing and manly scents. I think my top two candle purchases from Bath & Body Works were Eucalyptus Mint/Stress Relief and Mahogany Teakwood, but I found myself going through them so quickly when I started working from home. I would let them burn the entire workday and what should’ve been lasting a few weeks was now just lasting a week.
I know, I know. That was totally a user error, but I knew then that I needed to look into another option. I’ve seen diffusers and oils everywhere for a while now. Different companies selling them, people using them for home fragrances, and more. I didn’t know who to buy from and I didn’t want to dive too far into that world before I at least figured out if it was something that could work for me.
Like I’ve done so many times before, I did a quick Google search and found a reasonably priced diffuser and a set of starter oils with great reviews. I was able to get 16 10oz bottles of popular scents for me to test out different blends and so far things have been going well!
The diffuser I bought has a few timer options as well as a sleep function that I haven’t tested yet, and these oils are pretty good. I’ve been sticking to blends similar to candle scents I like, so eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon, peppermint, and tangerine (which was a gift from a friend)! I’m still getting my feet wet, and I’ll likely use some oils in the kit more than others, but I’d love to hear from y’all. What are some of your favorite blends that you like to diffuse? So far I’ve been mainly using it while I work so I need something that’s light and fresh, but will keep me focused. So drop your favorite blends in the comments below!
