Essential Oil Diffusers


For years I burned candles, however, I didn’t realize how much soot I was inhaling. Furthermore, I didn’t realize that my walls and ceilings were being cover with the soot.  I painted regularly because my ceilings would end up dirty.  As a result, I stopped burning candles.  Repainting was getting costly.

Last year, I attended a bloggers conference where Rocky Mountain Oils was a vendor.  They were promoting their essential oils, so I decided to grab a few samples.  I held on to them for months after the conference.  For some reason I never got around to using them.  So, my daughter’s birthday was approaching and she had essential oil diffusers on her birthday list.  So, I headed over to Amazon and started browsing essential oil diffusers.

Furthermore, it has an automatic shut off.  When the reservoir is dry it shuts off.  It also has an adjustable LED light and 3 different mist settings.  Also, this diffuser will run for up 4 hours on the highest setting, 6 hours on medium and up to 8 hours on the lowest setting.  Unfortunately, this model is out of stock. Here’s one that is similar.

I decided to purchase one for my home to replace the candles.  It was time for me to pull out my stash and start diffusing essential oils.  I selected the COSSCCI Essential Oil Diffuser Humidifier.   I love the fact that it not only  improves air quality, but it functions as a humidifier as well.  The icing on the cake for me, was the 7 LED lights.  I love that it passes through all of the colors.  I find it so soothing.  Not only are the lights soothing, I sleep better.  I have a terrible time with allergies, and this diffuser cleans the air.

My grandchildren love the changing colors on the diffuser.  So, Santa will be placing one under the tree for them.  They love to snuggle with Mawmaw when I’m visiting or when they’re visiting me.  As a result, they were able to enjoy the diffuser at bedtime.   I purchased this essential oil sampler and I am thoroughly enjoying them.  The box contained Peppermint, Eucalyptus,  Lemon Grass, Tea Tree, Sweet Orange, and Lavender.  Sweet Orange and Peppermint are my favs.

4 Simple Ways to Prevent Allergies in Your Home


ways to prevent allergeries


Common allergies can cause people to live with annoying, painful symptoms. If you have allergies, then you have probably experienced headaches, runny noses, sleepless nights, and other problems. You can put an end to your suffering — and the suffering of your family members — by using these four simple ways to prevent allergies in your home.

Keep Pets Off Furniture

Letting your pets get on the furniture will cause problems for people who are sensitive to dander. Instead of letting your dog or cat share the couch with you, get a separate bed that will keep your furry friend comfortable. It only takes a small amount of training for domestic animals to understand that they aren’t allowed on furniture.

If you can’t resist snuggling with your pet, get a hypoallergenic breed that won’t make allergic people feel sick. Popular hypoallergenic breeds include:


  • Bichon Frise
  • Chinese Crested
  • Poodle
  • Schnauzer

Cats tend to cause more allergic reactions than dogs, but there are a few hypoallergenic breeds to consider.

Replace Your HVAC System’s Air Filter

Your home’s HVAC system can remove a lot of allergens from the air. It can only do the job well, though, when it has a clean filter to capture dust, pet dander, and other allergens.

Some experts recommend replacing air filters once per month. That works as a general rule, but in reality, your filter will collect more dirt during times of the year when you use your air conditioner or furnace frequently. Inspect your filter monthly to see if you need to replace it. Don’t let more than 90 days pass between replacements, though. If it’s been 90 days, your home’s indoor air quality will benefit from a new filter.

Ask People to Use Doormats Before Coming In

When you think of pollen, you probably imagine it floating through the air. The air’s pollen count will affect allergies, but so will pollen that enters your home in other ways. Your shoes are one of the most common ways to track pollen into a house. When you walk across the lawn, you collect large amounts of pollen from small plants.

You can limit the amount of pollen that enters your home by having everyone wipe their feet before entering. It’s a good idea to put a mat on the inside and outside of each exterior doorway. With two doormats, you’ll take control of the pollen that tries to enter your house on shoes.

Vacuum and Dust Weekly

No matter what you do, some allergens will get inside your home. Regular cleaning is the best way to prevent the allergens from accumulating. Take time to vacuum and dust each room every week.

If you don’t already clean once per week, then it may take a while for you to get into the habit. Eventually, though, spending a few hours vacuuming and dusting will seem like a normal thing to do on the weekends.

It only takes a little effort to banish allergens from your home. In return, your household will enjoy better health and freedom from the sneezing, coughing, and other irritations that are caused by allergic reactions.
