What are Essential Oils good for?

The benefits of essential oils go far beyond creating a nice aroma in your home, car, or on your body. What do essential oils do? Essential oils are a form of alternative therapeutic treatment that can offer a range of benefits, from promoting better sleep to pain relief. They can be used on their own or in special blends, and their many potential uses include relieving anxiety, providing a natural air freshener, supporting nail health and hormone balance, helping with allergies and respiratory illness, treating depression and motion sickness, aiding digestion and weight loss, supporting bones and joints health, aiding circulation, and improving mental alertness.

How to use Essential Oils

Using a Diffuser

Using a diffuser for your essential oils is the fastest way to get the fragrance within your room or car. There is a wide variety of diffusers: electronic diffusers, candle diffusers, or reed diffusers.

Using an electric diffuser is an easy and effective way to enjoy the benefits of essential oils. All you need to do is add a few drops of your desired essential oil into the water tank, fill it with clean water, and plug in the device. The electric fan then disperses a mist of the fragrant oil and enhances the aroma around you. Adjust settings to control how strong or weak you'd like your scent to be. Enjoy!

Using a candle diffuser is easy and convenient, plus it makes for an aesthetically pleasing home accent. First, you'll need to fill your diffuser with any essential oils, preferably diluted in simple carriers such as water or almond oil. Then, light the candle atop the diffuser and leave it to burn until fragrant vapor fills up the room. To prevent fire hazards, make sure to keep an eye on the candle at all times and never leave it burning unattended. Additionally, only use tea-light candles specifically made for aromatherapy diffusers.

Reed diffusers are a great way to fill your home with fragrances. To use a reed diffuser, simply unscrew the cap from the diffuser bottle and insert the reeds into it. The oil in the bottle will rise up the reeds thanks to capillary action and the oil will slowly evaporate, radiating its smell throughout your home. You should flip your reeds every few days to ensure that all of them are able to absorb enough of the fragrance.


“Until I purchased Harmony's Essential Oils, I never realized there was a difference from the oils that I have purchased from the grocery store in the health section. Harmony’s Essential Oils are aromatic and much stronger which makes me think the others were diluted. I made my own after shave oils and mosquito repellent, and obtained far better results.” -Carol F.

“I love Harmony's Essential Oils – Relaxation blend because it has a strong, refreshing scent and helps me feel relaxed. I use the oils on my pillow before bedtime, and they help me to sleep better. I've been looking for someplace to purchase these oils, and now that I found this website, I won't buy them anywhere else.” –Jemima G.

“I am a massage therapist, and I have been using Harmony’s Essential Oils in my massage oils. I had no idea how many different scents were out there. This company came highly recommended and I must say it was worth it.” –Lianna F.
