Home Diffusers

I am wanting some info on home diffusers. If anyone has one that they particularly like please comment on how they work, etc. I like a nice clean smell but not too much fragrance. A spa aroma would be nice.

B.O.B headquarters sells the oils, so they could help you find a scent you like. You can buy the diffusers at winners for a decent price, and they work pretty well. If you don't want a strong scent, just put fewer drops of oil in.

Scentsy

Has beautiful diffusers with life time warranty  
Https://passionate.scentsy.ca  
I have one at home in the main area of our house and use a variety of oils I'm it. There are lots out there or you can even make your own blends by looking up online. I used to think it was a bunch of hogwash but I think they do make a difference.  
I usually diffuse lavender in my office one as I find it just helps take the edge off somedays.  
They are all different I found while looking- my scentsy one will run for about 10 hour's and then will turn itself off- some I looked at had smaller tanks and only ran a few hours.  
Good luck- you'll love the extra moisture in the air and I also found people who normally complained candles were too strong dont mind this because it's natural

Young living

You can get an amazing starter kit that i:ncludes 11 oils and a diffuser from young living. As for what oils to diffuse totally depends on what you like!!! I love diffusing citrus ones like orange, lemon, grapefruit and citrus fresh or if I want people to keep their germs to themselves I will diffuse thieves lol! If you have any questions or need any help you can ask anytime!

I found one at Winners

before Christmas and when I went back for another they were gone. I love the peppermint oil, its so fresh and since our windows are closed, it removes household odors, like cooking. I also love the lavender for relaxation and sleep. Lemongrass was too strong for me, even a small amount. Curious as to what benefits other oils bring.

You can get a decent diffuser a lot of places, even walmart I think. I really like the young living products, especially when it comes to their oils.  
It really depends on what kind of smells you like. I like a variety, as other people have said. Citrus oils, peppermint, etc. give the room a nice fresh smell and are very energizing. I love cinnamon and clove type scents, so I diffuse a lot of thieves as well. If you like more calming or flowery smells, there is oils like lavender or patchouli. More earthy smells like frankincense are great as well.

I have two from young living and one on the way and one from two farm kids. The ones from young living disperses the scent way better then the one from two farm kids. I have to double the amount of oil used to smell. They are roughly the same price. The place in the mall was out of my price range when I got the one from two farm kids.

Scent

Just be careful if you or any loved ones have any scent allergies. I have scent allergies and can't be any where remotely near thieves oil. It is the most painful reaction I've ever had to any of my scent allergies. I can't go to craft shows or anywhere that sells these oils and has the thieves oil with it. I've had to ask everyone in my life to not use this scent. Lavender is also a trigger for me (anything floral), but the thieves one is unreal.  
Just something for people to consider when buying/using these products.  
 
To op, I've heard the diffusers scentsy sells are pretty good!

You cannot be allergic to a scent. You may have a reaction to the smell because your body is detoxing though. It would be similar to a detox when you first start using probiotics if your gut is extremely out of balance. You may feel worse when first beginning the use of the probiotic, because it is restoring your body to a more natural state.  
It''s the same with the oils, you may be lacking something in your body that the oil is providing, which is causing you to have a bad reaction to it. As for allergies, the only way you could have an allergy to an oil is if it is not a pure oil. If there is other junk in it, you could have an allergy to that, but a 100% pure oil, you cannot. The oil that comes from the particular plant does not contain any of the allergens that may be present in the actual plant. Ie. if you are allergic to grapefruit, you cannot be allergic to the oil.  
Also, if you find the scent of an oil gross, start rubbing it on the bottom of your feet everyday. Your body will take what it needs from the oils, and you will start enjoying the scent after a while.

Or they could just be allergic to it.  
 
People are sensitive/allergic to scents all the time, hence the scent-free workplaces, etc. Not all allergies are protein-based, some are chemical-based. I have a sulphite allergy as diagnosed by an allergist, yet it's a chemical not a protein.  
 
You can also be allergic to oils if you're allergic to plants if you're sensitive enough, regardless how pure the oil is. Ask any parent who has a kid with peanut allergies if they think peanut oil is okay.

I'M sure my allergist in Winnipeg would love to hear how it''s not an allergy. I have to be hospitalized for certain reactions. That's not just "detoxifying". First it feels like my brain is closing in on itself, I can''t move, it's the most intense pain I have ever felt (I have given birth naturally twice), my body breaks out into hives and my throat swells to the point I can''t breath. I have been told to avoid these products/scents at all costs. Definitely not to put them on my body. I have asthma and this sends me into a tailspin. So maybe you don't consider it an allergy, even though my doctor does, .. but it triggers a potententially fatal response in me.

I don't doubt you are allergic to something within the oil, because most oils that are advertised as 100% pure, are actually not. But you cannot be allergic to just the oil. A lot of people are allergic to scented products, hence no scent policies in a lot of places. Scented products like perfumes, deodorants, soaps, etc. are not the same in any way to an essential oil though.

Being allergic to scented products is completely different. Those products like perfumes, soaps, etc. are not essential oils. And there is no protein allergy when scented products are involved. That would be a chemical allergy, because it's not a products that is ingested as a food, which would be a protein based allergy.  
 
Peanut oil is not an essential oil either, so yes, if you are allergic to peanuts, you will be allergic to peanut oil as well. Same with olive oil, or sunflower oil, or coconut oil, etc. These are carrier oils, NOT essential oils. They still contain the same allergens as the plant itself.

I see what you mean. And to be fair, I've only been exposed to the DoTerra brand and Young living. So this tells me that these two companies are NOT pure as I do react to them, and can potentially stop breathing when around them. And since most people do seem to use these brands, it is still fair to warn people that these scents of these "oils", can trigger a harmful reaction to loved ones with allergies. So use with caution.

Oils

I was skeptical at first about oils. But got a blend of oils by Scentuals called headache relief. It doesn't fully take a headache away but it helps with it. I also got a Young Living Oils starter kit for Christmas and I love it. The purification oil really takes odours away. And Lavender helps with sleep. I haven't tried the others yet. I know Scentsy and Sage make really nice diffusers too.

That's not fun.....young living and saje are my favourite essential oils. I'm pretty certain that saje is not 100% pure, because their oils are fairly cheap, but I was always under the impression that young living was guaranteed 100% pure. I love their thieves oil, it's one of my favourite.  
Anyways, to the OP, just experiment. I was skeptical of oils at first as well, but for me, if they have no real benefits, at least my house smells good!
