Essential oils have many uses: burn the oils in a diffuser, use as a perfume, or dab some on a warm cloth and use for dusting and cleaning. Consider offering these diffusing kits as retail items to your clients — or try them out to make your salon smell warm and inviting.

Synergy Essentials has several diffusers to choose from, such as the wood diffuser that comes with a timer, an ultrasonic diffuser that uses water to disperse the therapeutic aromas, or the basic plug-in warmer.
