Balance Life with Guru Nanda's Humidifier and Essential Oil Diffuser #MBPWELLNESS21 #REVIEW


Thank you to Guru Nanda for the Halo XL in exchange for my review. 
All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Ahh.. winter. The time of cold temps, hot drinks, and dry air! Also the time of congestion, chapped lips, and that insatiable thirst for water when I first wake up in the morning. Normally, sinus infections hit me a couple of times of year, perhaps a round of Bronchitis, and a few colds here and there. With masks, lots of hand-sanitizer, and staying home this hasn't happened this year. 

This year, I am seriously struggling with the lack of humidity in my apartment. Perhaps its because in past years, I've spent more time in the office than at home. While we always need water to survive, I've found myself gulping down water several times a day because of the lack of humidity in my home! Not that water is an evil things- after all its great for our hair, skin, organs, and body as a whole, but its not good when the air is that dry in the home! 

As part of my wellness regime, I've definitely upped my water game, but also realized I needed to add some humidity into my home to help out my breathing and dryness issues. Along with more water and more humidity, I've also learned about the world of aromatherapy. Something I've always stayed away from is essential oils because various scents give me headaches. As I've started to engage in the benefits of using oils, I realize that there are a lot that do calm me and help me to breathe easier.. but yes, there are still some that give me headaches! 

Guru Nanda has humidifiers, diffusers, and essential oils to help with all healthcare needs! Created by Puneet Nanda, Guru Nanda strives to use Puneet's knowledge of an Ancient Indian healing practice known as "Ayurveda" to provide wellness to the mind, body, and spirit. Guru Nanda's essential oils are pure oil made in a farm to shelf process that provides wonderful aromatherapy relief to aid in relief and wellness. 

The Guru Nanda Halo XL Winter Wellness Set double functions as a humidifier AND essential oil diffuser. This brings the best of both worlds to my home- as space is always a premium, especially tabletop space. The Halo XL came with two Guru Nanda oils: the Immunity Blend and the Breathe Easy Blend. PERFECT for winter wellness! 

First: let's talk about the Halo XL. I don't have a lot of experience with humidifiers (more so with dehumidifiers after a hurricane), so this is somewhat new to me. 

Both Cool Mist and Warm Mist Humidifiers exist and do different things to promote wellness, so you will have to figure out what's the best for your home. Warm Mist Humidifiers typically use steam to release moisture into the air- which is perfect if you need more heat in your home- while Cool Mist Humidifiers release moisture without heat. 

The Halo XL is a Cool-Mist Humidifier, which is great because here on North Carolina's east coast, it does not stay hot very long! Soon the AC will be blasting and I'll have the same dryness issues all over again! 

The Halo XL also is a diffuser, meaning that when added to the water, the essential oils will release into the air, helping you to absorb all of those great goodies from the oil. 

The Halo XL comes with a water tank that lasts 22 hours with continuous mist. It is super easy to use! Lift off the top, pour in your water  to the max line, add about 10 drops of oil, and replace top. Operating Buttons include: Mist, Light, and Timer. Misting can occur on high speed and low speeds with a bright yellow light or in sleep mode  with low mist and no light. A Timer can be set for the Halo XL to mist for 2 hrs., 4 hrs., 8 hrs., or continuous run. 

Second, Guru Nanda's Essential Oils are designed to benefit and aid a specific mood: energize, heal, relax, balance, and purify. The Guru Nanda Immunity Blend is full of clove, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Frankincense, Lemon & Oregrano to enhance your immune system's well being. The Breathe Easy Blend is full of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Basil, Tea Tree & Rosemary to aid with restful sleep, dismantling congestion, or dealing with negative effects of sinuses. Guru Nanda Essential Oils are 100% natural, cruelty free, and GCMS tested. 

I found that I love the Breathe Easy blend, as I have a disposition to eucalyptus and mint... but I have to lessen the usage of the Immunity Blend as I do get headaches from those scents. Guru Nanda suggests adding about 10-15 drops into your water, but for Immunity, I only add a few. I stick right at 10 for Breathe Easy so that the scent does not overpower me too much. 

Guru Nanda's Halo XL is easy to take care of as well! After disconnecting the power cord, use a cloth to clean the outside and inside of the water tank. It's recommended to clean your humidifier out every 3 days so that it stays fresh and free of harmful residue. 

Use your humidifier/ diffuser on a flat surface, preferably away from a wall. Make sure important documents, books, etc. are not surrounding the perimeter so that they stay dry! Placing your humidifier up higher, like on a desktop, also helps the mist to get up higher in the room as well! 

After using this for about week, I really do notice a difference in my sleeping. The silent mode is excellent with little noise, no light, but a wonderful mist all through the night! I'll still keep my water game upped, but I find I'm not waking up seriously parched. The Halo XL really has added much- needed humidity into my home! 

While you can use any essential oil you like, I would recommend finding one that use testing to certify purity and validity. A lot of filler can be placed in oils, so make sure that the ingredients are true to what the product is! Guru Nanda's Essential Oils also are made through ethical farming practices, which is very important as many products are outsourced from other countries. 

If you are new to diffusers, humidifiers, and essential oils, Guru Nanda is a great way to start building that relationship between your body, mind, and spirit! Wellness has always been important, but as 2021 continues to be a rocky start, its even more important to stay healthy and whole!
