If the air that we breathe is clean and full of oxygen, we feel well. However, the air we typically breathe in our homes, our cars, and our offices, is typically polluted by the chemicals used in the manufacture of wall paneling, furniture, upholstery, even clothing--not to mention the cleaning products, disinfectants, chemically based "air fresheners," and perfumes that are loaded with synthetic chemicals that can be literally sickening. All of the aforementioned items contain one if not more known carcinogens, in fact. Indoor air is also typically low in oxygen because, unlike the outdoors, it is not filled with plants. Being in low oxygen environments for too long tends to put us in a low energy, fatigued state.
Essential oils can freshen the air naturally as well as add healthy levels of oxygen to it. These oils also provide a number of additional benefits worth noting: For exaample, diffusing essential oils in office environments has been proven to reduce mental errors by 50%. Diffusing essential oils in your bedroom can help you fall asleep, deepen your sleep, and boost body repair processes that occur during sleep. A travel diffuser is remarkably effective for preventing fatigue when driving for long periods of time in automobiles.

To receive the benefits of diffusing essential oils, therapeutic grade oils must be used as well as a type of cold-air diffusion technology. (Diffusers that heat the oils actually destroy their therapeutic constituents in the difusion process.) Visit http://healingilluminations.younglivingworld.com. to learn more. From this site, you can also purchase therapeutic oils and diffusers on-line.
