We adjust the temperature in our homes with heaters and fans, but how often do we give a thought to the air we breathe?
I’ve recently been trying out some essential oil diffusers and it’s made me think about how nice it is to have lightly scented, humidified air in the house. It’s the kind of thing I probably wouldn’t seek out, but now that I’ve tried diffusing, I miss it when it’s not on in the home. Continue reading “Sage Wellness essential oil diffuser review”
