Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Social Distancing

Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Social Distancing

In the past week, the US has slowly started to shut down socially. Earlier this week, the CDC recommended that people practice social distancing – in other words, avoiding close contact with others. Then, President Trump advised people to keep all social gatherings under 10 people to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

So, into our homes we go.

One question I’ve received frequently over the past few days is along the lines of “we’re doing what we can to keep the virus from spreading outside of our home, but what can I do to keep it from coming inside our home?

While no one can guarantee that the coronavirus wont step over the threshold of your door, there are some homeopathic practices (outside of hand-washing, supplements, and cleaning) you can do to help keep the air inside your home are pure as possible and even help boost your immune system as well! Essential oils have medicinal traits that, when diffused into the air in your home, can help you keep the inside of your home – as well as your mind and body – as clean and strong as possible (and maybe keep you from the inevitable cabin fever).

Here are a list of some strategic diffuser blends you can use to make the most of your social distancing experience:

*A note about oils – After a lot of research, I have decided for myself that I will only use essential oils in a diffuser or topically with a carrier oil. I truly value the medicinal strength of these oils and I do not stand behind the ingestion of them without the advise and consent of a licensed professional. Oils are great, but should be respected for what they are – medicine. Please use them wisely and choose wisely which oils you use. I have always chosen NOW Foods Essential Oils for topical and aromatherapy use and, while I do partner with them often, this is NOT a sponsored post.
