@boygenius1991 i don’t have these, but i do have two quooz lull diffusers (same concept) and we use them pretty much every day. i initially bought one for our living room because we had a downstairs neighbor that was “burning incense” (smoking skunk weed) every night and we were doing everything possible to combat that until she got evicted. but i liked it so much we still use it (nice in general but also helps with lingering cooking smells - lemongrass is especially good for this) and i got a second one for our bedroom that i put peppermint oil in every night. it doesn’t take the place of a humidifier in the winter but without it the difference is really noticeable. definitely helps me not wake up feeling like i’ve eaten my pillow in the night.
we use a combo of radha beauty (i buy the large bottles but they have sets of the small bottles for a good price on amazon) and nature’s truth oils (which i can get at my local grocery store for $3.99-4.99).
Please be aware that essential oil diffusers can be dangerous to pets. Especially true for certain oils, such as peppermint, and small dogs and cats are most the most vulnerable. The oil gets absorbed by their body through inhalation and absorption of oil droplets through their skin but their livers can’t process it quick enough, oftentimes.
@phobiac@sammydog01 Yes chocolate is necessary for human health, wellbeing and future happiness. When I used to take adjudicated youth canoeing across the state of FL I had a 1 liter water bottle full of M&M’s which we (staff) used to call Vit M. We’d ask each other if we had had our Vit. M today. I got good at sneaking them, while canoeing with a kid in the bow of my boat, without getting caught by the kids. If I had gotten caught that would have been the end of my stash.
@katbyter Sorry for my perceived attack. Thank you for sharing regarding this product (I am a total neophyte which led me to look more at the site) Actually, it’s even most clever marketing on the part of Kathleen and Yankee Homestead, imparting some great info about the use of EO in plastic bottles!
@GTTraveller No worries. There are a lot of pages like that. Yes it is both informational and clever marketing. Give people knowledge about using your product. Then give them a way to buy some. There is a lot of oil info out there. Some crazy competition and infighting, and lots of misinformation. Best of luck sorting out the good from the mediocre.(See what I did there?) I just try to steer clear of anything labeled aromatherapy. I have had good success on many fronts with both DoTerra and Young Living. They fight like the Hatfields and McCoys, but they’re both good. Like Coke and Pepsi it’s a personal preference.
@cengland0 That’s like saying I’m buying a vacuum cleaner, which is directly responsible for cleaning the environment you are breathing in, for 30 bucks cause they are all the same. Lampe berger kits start at 29 bucks…essential oils from young living even cheaper. If I am going to breathe it, a few bucks more for quality wont kill me…
Actually, there’s a double-blind test saying cineole, the active ingredient in eucalyptus, is good for congestion. Personal anecdote: I like to use Dr. Bronner’s eucalyptus soap in the shower for a double-whammy of steam + eucalyptus. The rest is still bullshit, though.
