My lady friends are always getting happy about new fads, whether it’s leggings, meal upgradement shakes, or herbal supplements. The styles and trends are always increasing, occasionally throughout a single year in a dizzying manner. But a single fad that seemed to stick over the past decade was essential oils. You see essential oils in every kind of store; even my pharmacist carries them in his tiny pharmacy on Main Street. My friends started making their own lotions with various oils like pop tree, frankincense, and lavender. These oils aren’t cheap at all, occasionally forking $15 to $30 for tiny 1.5 oz bottles. In the start I thought that it was because the oils were high-priced to make, however it’s more so because that’s the most they can charge for them while still making a healthy profit. If you’re smart about where you shop, you can often find alternatives with the same quality however at a completely strange price point. I used to love putting eucalyptus oil on my Heating and A/C filters, however my supplier recommended using an essential oil diffuser instead. Since my Heating and A/C filter sits fairly close to my evaporator coil, he said it wasn’t wise risking any of the oils getting on the fragile metal coil and corroding it in the process. On top of that, using an essential oil diffuser yields much more satisfying results with making the home smell charming throughout every single room. If you put your diffuser near your Heating and A/C air return, the fan will pull the oil vapor into the ventilation system, making every room smell amazing.
