Candles vs Diffusers


😷Before you light up that PUMPKIN SPICE 🍁🍂 candle ……beware!!! 🕯🕯

It’s a MUST READ POST especially if you are new to oils !! I know those candles can be tempting. But once I switched to my diffuser I never looked back. Plus, less fires people.🔥🔥 Read on….

So if our sense of smell is directly linked to our limbic system, why is diffusing essential oils better than just burning some great smelling candles?? I mean, since we’re smelling both of them, they could both have the same amazing effects, right? Nope.

Let’s match them up in a in a Diffusing Essential Oils vs Candle Burning FACE-OFF to see if that’s the case…👃

First up, Candles:
•They smell nice, but those scents are made from synthetic chemicals that can simply be labeled as “fragrance”. Many of those “fragrances” (the chemicals) in and of themselves are rated up there with cigarette smoke for allergens.
•Actually reduce the quality of the air.
•Phthalates are often found in scented candles and have been linked to allergic reactions and asthma related problems.
•Phthalates are also known to cause reproductive, immune and central nervous system problems.
•Paraffin (found in many candle bases) is a petroleum byproduct. The American Lung Association warns that when burned, these candles release carcinogenic chemicals into the air.
•Imported candles may have lead or lead cores in the wick, which is then released into the air.
•Toxic chemicals, such as Benzene – a known human carcinogen, are release by some candles.
•The chemicals emitted by some candles, especially heavily scented ones, are similar to the fumes from car exhaust!
•According to reports, almost 98% of the soy produced in the US in genetically modified. GMO soy is not the only problem, many soy candles are a combination of soy and paraffin, so unless clearly labeled as 100% soy, I’d stay clear of them.
Okay, so…I don’t know about you, but that info kinda turned me off from my love of candles. And I LOVED burning candles. Am I doomed to have a stinky, stale smelling house if I don’t want to bring all of those things into my home??? Say it ain’t so!!


So, let’s see how diffusing matches up.

Diffusing YL Essential Oils:💨💦
•Cleans the air of airborne pathogens, reducing bacteria, fungus, mold and odors.
•Supports immune function (aka less likely to get the icks).
•Supports respiratory function.
•Increases oxygen availability in the air (ahhh, breathe in, breathe out).
•Increases the body’s ability to transport oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
•Enhances mood and uplift spirits.
•Many essential oils improve concentration and mental clarity (yes, please).
•Promotes restful sleep (now who couldn’t use more of that?!)

I don’t know about you, but I saw a CLEAR winner in that match-up and there’s no question what I want my family breathing in our home. What did you learn new from this?? Let’s share….


If you don’t yet have essential oils I would love to help you get started!! It will be the best decision you ever make!!




As always, thanks for reading and I hope today has a good you!!


It’s My Choice 

Some of you may know that I am a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils.                                            If you didn’t know…well now you do! 

                           I had such a huge oil win yesterday that I just have to share. 


I woke up at 6 am (which by the way is far to early for me to be awake) and my first thought was “Oh no, I’m getting sick”. My second thought was “grab the oils”. So I got out of bed and grabbed all of my rollers.

Breathe Again on the sides of my nose to help me to be able to breathe through my nose, 






RC on my chest to break up whatever was in my body causing me to wheeze, 

Thieves on the bottom of my feet because it just protects me from EVERYTHING, 

Allergy roller (peppermint, lavender & Lemon) behind my ears to combat the allergies I have………AND








Purification around my eyes to stop the itching!

Now, I know what you are thinking. “That’s a lot of oils to make you feel better!” Well for someone who knows the benefits of the oils and who doesn’t like to take medication (because you really don’t know what’s in that over the counter stuff) it’s the only option! 

So you’re probably wondering what the outcome was!  Well, the oils worked of course, just like they always do. Within about 20 minutes I was breathing clearly, the wheezing had stopped and my eyes were no longer itching or red!! 


I’ll take my oil wins over heading to the pharmacy any day!! 

If you are looking at using oils to make your life better and healthier you can check out my website or email me. I’m not trying to sell you anything! You can keep taking the pharmacy meds if you want to. I’m just giving you a better way if you so choose. 

I hope you have a great day and as always thanks for reading my blog!!
