Dinner and Diffusing

Any moment that you have time to gather with loved ones and share a meal will always be the perfect moment. You can enhance your environment and turn your home into a space of sweet ambiance to create a warm, stimulating environment.

Any moment that you have time to gather with loved ones and share a meal will always be the perfect moment. You can enhance your environment and turn your home into a space of sweet ambiance to create a warm, stimulating environment. Essential oils can add to that perfect lighting, flowers, and beautifully set table! Scents have a profound impact on how we feel. Tender childhood memories, tropical beach environments, an elegant aesthetic bliss, or a beloved natural environment can be elicited in a moment. The aroma of your diffuser can produce a lasting impact as you gather, share, love, and celebrate.

The soft floral scents of Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, and Rose are always exceptionally sweet and uplifting additions to any environment. These oils will make everyone feel more at ease and ready unwind with some delicious food and company.

Neroli can also create an inviting environment for your guests. It can offer an intoxicating and deeply soothing effect, like a cool breeze on a hot day, or a glass of something lightly fragrant when you are parched. Everyone loves Neroli. Though more expensive than other oils, this luxurious option is not only prized for its scent; it is also incredibly healing on the skin, as well as the psyche! It regenerates, is good for skin disorders, acne, and rashes, and even diminishes scars, stretch marks, and uneven tone. It is extremely balancing, inside and out!

Another bold way to use essential oils is in cocktails. Though not all essential oils are meant to be ingested (most are not, and some can be dangerous!), there are some that are perfect to add flavor and delight to drinks. You’ll be thinking it’s a wonder you hadn’t been doing it already! Some great and easy options are Lavender, Bergamot, and Ginger. Make a simple syrup (see recipe below) and add it to any drink for a tantalizing, striking addition to the old familiar beverages. The medicinal properties still apply too! Please note: 1-3 drops ONLY! We suggest the syrup strongly over directly including an oil; they are very strong and some can actually burn you without diluting them.

Simple Syrup

  • 2 cups honey
  • 2 cups water
  • 1-3 drops essential oil

Bring the honey and water to a simmer in a saucepan, then add the food-grade essential oil (such as the above mentioned) Add syrup to a sparkling drink, julep, or even hot beverage and enjoy!

These are only a few ideas out of the countless ways essential oils can enhance your experiences, at a dinner party and in life. Try some out and get inspired to match and enhance according to your inspiration. The effects of these beautiful plants alter our consciousness so subtly that we can begin to learn more about ourselves. Through this, we can create the type of environment everyone can relax, connect, and thrive in.
