Got an Air Diffuser to deal with Bad Neighbor's Smoking

Updated: Nov 7, 2018

Let me clarify what bad neighbor means

My neighbor isn't bad because she smokes. Like most smokers, she's addicted. I get that. She is bad because she is not a nice person and is causing all of us around her great distress. We, myself and other neighbors, have asked her nicely and semi-forcefully, even humorously, to please not smoke outside our apartment doors because it is filling our apartment with rancid cigarette smoke and, at least for me, aggravating my health issues. She flat out refused to change.

That left me scrambling for different ways of coping including making complaints. Since that is taking some time and frankly hasn't been effective, I have had to do some adjustments inside my home to try to cope. This included using my air purifier more frequently and purchasing an air diffuser.

Nothing can cancel out the toxins in the second-hand smoke completely. But at least it has allowed me to use aromatherapy to relieve some of my stress with the healing scents of essential oils. The one I purchased is Radha Beauty Air Diffuser as well as their therapeutic grade essential oils. It was a small investment that gave me some consolation.

The Radha Beauty oils can be purchased as a set or separately, which I did because there were more of them, 18 to be exact. This is their essential oil product description:

"One of the many things we love about essential oils is their versatility. Our oils can be used individually or combined for aromatherapy, skin healing and conditioning, and even repelling insects! Great for traveling, gifts, or experiencing a little bit of everything in your oil collection. The set includes...lavender, tea tree, peppermint, lemongrass, orange, eucalyptus, rosemary, frankincense, lemon, bergamot, cedarwood, patchouli, geranium, pink grapefruit, cinnamon, oregano, clove, and clary sage."

Obviously you don't need a nasty neighbor to try these since they are incredibly healing, pleasant and useful in many ways. But for me it does the trick until this issue is resolved.

Get on my list
