Candles can be as harmful for your health as smoking! You are the gatekeeper to your home, so what are you choosing to fill it with?
Benefits of Diffusers instead of candles
1. No fire hazards! No hot wax or flames. That already makes it safer. I’ve heard horror stories about how candles have set homes on fire and how candles have caused burn injuries to children and adults. You can leave your diffuser on overnight without the fear of the house catching on fire!
2. Essential oils have therapeutic benefits, and can actually aid in your and your family’s health and wellness. Some examples: RC essential oil can help clear up your airways and breathe better. Lavender essential oil can create a calming environment and aid in sleep. Purification essential oil can clean the air by breaking down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria.
3. Contrary to popular belief, using oils and diffusers are actually cheaper than buying candles!! A common misconception is that essential oils are too expensive and the cheaper option is to go with candles. Not only are diffusers better for your health, but it actually ends up being cheaper!!
