aroma diffuser The Aroma diffuser with 3 functions from Smellacloud

When I come home after work at the hospital, I’m usually exhausted. Throughout the years, I have developed ways to help me unwind.

For me, there are 2 key elements that help me feel relaxed at home, and that is colour and scent. I guess that’s why subconsciously I decorate with so many happy colours at home.

It took me a while to find the perfect aroma diffuser for my home. I wanted something stylish, that functions well and is affordable.

I was so happy to stumble upon the aroma diffuser ranges by Smellacloud whilst browsing social media one day. aroma diffuser There were so many designs to choose from, but I finally settled on the above Nimbus 2.0 Aroma diffuser 200 in green.

I just loved that green colour, it’s a soothing and calm colour don’t you think? Talking about colour, my aroma diffuser also changes colour. So not only do I get the beneficial effects of aroma, I also get the therapeutic effects from the colourful light. It goes from shades of purples, pinks, blues and yellows.

The mist from the aroma diffuser also acts as a humidifier, that helps with easier breathing, especially during Winter when the air gets too dry.

Come to think of it, it would work wonders for a blocked nose too if you had a cold.

Just place a drop or two of Peppermint essential oil in the water and vapourise that wonderful minty humidified air away. aroma diffuser There are a variety of essential oils to pick from. You would certainly be spoilt for choice.

I went for Peppermint, Bergamot and Mandarin.

Bergamot is a citrus plant that is a cross between lime and orange. I’ve tried mine at home and not only is it refreshing, it’s a great insect repellent for these Summer months too.

If you are off travelling somewhere exotic where mosquitoes roam, then this aroma diffuser is light enough to take with you on your holidays.  As I type this post, my aroma diffuser is busily sending the scent of Peppermint into the air to keep me feeling fresh and alert.

It’s such a wonderful addition to my home and now part of my mental wellbeing routine.

A thank you to Mr. Steam who was part sponsor of the Modenus Blog Tour LA which I attended earlier this month.

So, you may wonder who is Mr. Steam ? and why am I showing you my colourful mug collection?

The answer to the former question is that Mr. Steam is one of the largest manufacturer of electric steam boilers in the world. They make steam boilers for the U.S Navy, hospital operating rooms and Kennedy space centre.

Recently, they have ventured into the commercial and residential spa experience, creating high tech swipe touch control steam shower systems which now can also integrate aromatherapy, music therapy or Chromatherapy.

Chromatherapy also known as colour therapy is believed to be associated with a sense of wellbeing.

Here’s where my colourful mugs come into play, they are what I see every morning when I make coffee. Collectively, their vibrant colours are enough to eliminate any lingering sleepiness. Perhaps my daily colour choice is my subconscious acknowledgement for colour therapy.

Anyway, how nice it must be to relax in a steam shower, a spa in your own home and to experience its benefits with the additional triple treat of relaxing scents, colour and music.

So, without further ado, here’s what the colours  do ( information was extracted from the Mr. Steam website).
