Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that are distilled to capture the plant’s natural essence and scent.
They have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate headaches, improve sleep quality and there’s even some evidence suggesting they have anti-inflammatory properties—and that’s just a few of the benefits of using an essential oil diffuser at home.
While there are many varieties of essential oil diffusers, they all serve the same purpose—to spread a therapeutic aroma throughout your home. Whether the essential oils are transmitted through water, heat, or electricity, diffusers disperse them into the air as a fine, breathable mist.
Although one of the most common uses of an essential oil diffuser is to provide fragrance for an area of your home, there is a wide range of other benefits to using an essential oil diffuser. Essential oils have a number of properties that could improve your health, put you in a better mood, and make it easier for you to sleep. For example, many people find that an essential oil diffuser with chamomile or lavender oils helps them sleep better.
If you struggle with respiratory issues, diffusers may also be helpful. Essential oils like tea tree oil have antimicrobial properties, and oils like peppermint and eucalyptus might be able to make it easier for you to breathe and clear out your airways. The antimicrobial properties of oils could enable you to avoid getting sick or help to speed up your recovery.
Diffusers can even be used to repel insects. Many flying and stinging insects dislike cedarwood and clove, and using a diffuser near a window may help keep pests away from your home.
When looking for essential oils to use in your diffuser, be mindful of the difference between fragrant oils and essential oils. Fragrant oils are laboratory made whereas essential oils are extracted direct from the plant. In order to gain health benefits, it is advised to use natural essential oils.
Types of diffusers
There are many types of essential oil diffusers available on the market. Let’s have a look at some of these.
A nebulizer breaks the essential oils down into tiny molecules before dispersing them into the room. This helps to retain the powerful benefits of the oil. They use a glass cylinder or bottle, which can be harder to keep clean than other types of diffusers and can also be expensive to replace if broken.
Nebulizers are best for issues such as pain or skin irritation. They do however, use more essential oil than other types of diffusers.
An ultrasonic diffuser uses electronic frequencies to create vibrations in water, which creates a fine mist of essential oil and water. Some people like to use these as humidifiers during winter to humidify dry air. They are more sturdy and also cheaper in price than nebulizers. They use less essential oil than a nebulizer and because they run for longer periods of time, they use less essential oil, only needing to be re-filled once every 24 hrs.
Ultrasonic diffusers do not put out as strong a concentration of essential oil aroma. They can be useful for ailments such as sleep disorders, stress or anxiety.
Oil burners are a popular, safe alternative to synthetic air fresheners and scented candles.
This device is used to disperse essential oils into a room or area. This is done by placing essential oils, mixed with water into the top cavity of an oil burner, using a tealight candle burning beneath, to heat the mixture above, causing the aroma to disperse in steam. Through this process, the aroma of the essential oils fills the room, providing a beautiful fragrance.
Usually people place a scented oil burner n their living areas, bedrooms, offices.
The benefits of using an oil burner is that they are usually of a reasonable price to purchase, they are simple to use and easy to keep clean. You just rinse out the cavity and change the essential oil fragrance as you please.
Evaporative diffusers are pretty basic in how they operate. A fan blows air from the room through some sort of pad or filter that has essential oils dropped onto it. The air blowing through the pad causes the oils to evaporate more quickly than normal, and the air with the evaporated oil is blown into the room.
Another type of evaporative diffuser doesn’t require a fan to blow the oil around, but rather uses the air current existing in the room to subtly diffuse around a small area. These diffusers are usually personal diffusers such as necklace pendants, bracelets or roller blend inhalers. This can be a much cheaper alternative to using a diffuser unit.
