Walking in the Woods Diffuser Blend

Imagine yourself walking through a thick forest as you breathe in the woodsy scent of this diffuser blend. No matter where you live, the only items you’ll need for this little trip are a diffuser and some essential oils.

Honestly, you could use any essential oils that have a woodsy or earthy scent such as balsam fir, cedarwood, cypress, douglas fir, silver fir, white fir, galbanum, hinoki, hyssop, juniper, myrrh, patchouli, pine, rosemary, sandalwood, spikenard, black spruce, or blue spruce. Just use 1 drop for oils with stronger scents, and 2–3 drops for oils with lighter scents. Enjoy your walk in the woods!



6 Nasal Inhaler Recipes to Take to School

Inhaling essential oils has been proven to help students in their studies. Using essential oils at school can not only help memory recall, but also reduce stress and anxiety, boost energy, and calm a person down if needed. Read our “Essential Oils for Back to School” post for more ways students can benefit from using essential oils.


Just the scent of an essential oil can help with memory recall. Nothing is worse during a test than seeing a question and knowing that you studied the answer, but you can’t quite remember it. According to the Reference Guide for Essential Oils by Connie and Alan Higley, “A university in Japan experimented with diffusing different essential oils in the office. When they diffused lemon there were 54% fewer errors, with jasmine there were 33% fewer errors, and with lavender there were 20% fewer errors. When essential oils are diffused while studying and smelled during a test via a hanky or cotton ball, test scores may increase by as much as 50%. Different essential oils should be used for different tests, but the same essential oil should be used during the test as was used while studying for that particular test. The smell of the essential oil may help bring back the memory of what was studied.”1 Another study indicated that subjects who learned a list of 24 words while exposed to a certain aroma had an easier time re-learning the list when exposed to the same aroma than those who were exposed to a different aroma while trying to re-learn the list.2 Further studies have indicated that rosemary3 and peppermint4 aromas were found to enhance memory during clinical tests.


The best way to have the scent of essential oils with you while you study and take the test is to place the essential oils in a Nasal Inhaler. We’ve created 6 essential oil blends that can be used in nasal inhalers. Simply drop the oils on the wick; then insert the wick into the inhaler, and push the base in to close it. Place the inhaler close to your nose and inhale the aroma.

Good Night Diffuser Blend for Your Whisper Diffuser

Do you have a favorite diffuser? One of our favorite diffusers is the Whisper Premium Silent Misting Diffuser, and we want to tell you all about it!


State-of-the-Art Technology

The Whisper diffuser is an ultrasonic/humidifying diffuser that uses water and ultrasonic vibration (2.5 million vibrations per second) to break essential oils into tiny microparticles, dispersing the oil in a fine mist. This is important because these tiny particles are easily absorbed by the lungs to provide a therapeutic effect on the body, mind, and spirit.

The Whisper diffuser also uses a revolutionary, patented technology in which the water that is in the base with the ultrasonic disc is separate from the water that holds the essential oil. This makes it possible to diffuse even the thickest of essential oils (such as patchouli, sandalwood, and ylang ylang) that won’t work in many other diffusers. And because the oil never touches the moving parts, you don’t need to worry about your diffuser clogging or its parts gumming up. Its flexible liner, where the water and essential oil are held, extends the life of the diffuser by preventing contact of the oils and the ultrasonic vibrating disc. The cup is designed for continuous contact with oils, withstanding corrosion from even your strongest essential oils like lemon and cinnamon.

Another important fact is that this diffuser uses no heat. This is important because too much heat can chemically alter essential oils and lessen their therapeutic benefits. The Whisper diffuser uses cold tap water and the ultrasonic disc to create a cold, essential oil–laden mist.

The Whisper diffuser also comes with a 1-year warranty, so you can be confident that it will last a while or we will replace it.

Quiet Diffusion

If you have ever used a diffuser before, you know that noise level (or lack thereof) can be a very important quality—especially when you want to diffuse at night while you are sleeping. You’ll be amazed at how quiet the Whisper diffuser is! Even sitting right next to it, all you will hear is the occasional soft sound of moving water (which has been shown to help promote relaxation anyway).


Cleanup is Quick and Easy!

Because the essential oils don’t come in contact with the ultrasonic disc, this diffuser doesn’t require a cleaning after every cycle like other humidifying diffusers. However, you will want to clean it every once in a while. To do so, just take a wet cloth (add a little vinegar if there are hard water deposits) and wipe all the parts. Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol, and gently clean the ultrasonic disc in the base of the diffuser as well as the flexible liner cup. And . . . that’s it! Trust us, cleanup is a breeze!

Conserves Your Essential Oil

The Whisper diffuser is wonderful at conserving your expensive oils, because it doesn’t require much oil to diffuse it effectively. Just 2–6 drops of oil can fill a large room with aromatic goodness for hours!

Various Timer Settings and Automatic Shut-off Feature

One of the main reasons the Whisper diffuser is great for nighttime use is that it has timer settings that allow for diffusion all night long. The innovative two-way timer lets you continuously scent your environment for 50 minutes straight, or set an intermittent cycle (such as 15 seconds on, 30 seconds off) to make your oils last for as long as 9 hours. There are 6 timer settings so that you can better choose the length of the cycle.

An automatic shut-off feature activates when the water in the base reaches the minimum level, preventing damage to the internal mechanisms.

As an extra bonus, the Whisper diffuser automatically adjusts to input voltage (110–240 VAC, 47–63 Hz). So it will work almost anywhere in the world! (However, a plug adapter may be required outside the United States.)

Color Options

Are you ready to purchase your own Whisper Premium Silent Misting Diffuser yet? The decision-making isn’t over yet—you have 3 color options to choose from: Classic Silver, Blue Floral, or White.

Once you get your diffuser, try out this diffuser blend recipe to help promote relaxation and a sound sleep!
