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, relieve headaches, improve the quality of sleep, and there is even evidence to suggest they have anti-inflammatory properties – and these are just some 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 add a therapeutic aroma to your home. Regardless of whether the essential oils are transmitted by water, heat or electricity, diffusers distribute them into the air as a fine, breathable mist.
Although one of the most common uses of an essential oil diffuser is to scent an area of your home, there are a number of other benefits to using an essential oil diffuser. Essential oils have a number of properties that can improve your health, put you in a better mood, and make it easier for you to fall asleep. For example, many people find that an essential oil diffuser with chamomile or lavender oil helps them sleep better.
If you’re struggling with breathing problems, diffusers can also help. Essential oils like tea tree oil have antimicrobial properties, and oils like peppermint and eucalyptus can help you breathe easier and clear your airways. The antimicrobial properties of oils could allow you to avoid illness or speed up your recovery.
Diffusers can even be used to repel insects. Many flying and stinging insects don’t like cedar and cloves, and using a diffuser near a window can help keep pests out of your home.
When looking for essential oils for your diffuser, be aware of the difference between fragrant oils and essential oils. Fragrant oils are made in the laboratory, while essential oils are extracted directly from the plant. For health benefits, it is recommended that you use natural essential oils.
Types of diffusers
There are many types of essential oil diffusers on the market. Let’s look at some of them.
A nebulizer breaks down the essential oils into tiny molecules before distributing them around the room. This will help maintain the oil’s powerful benefits. They use a glass cylinder or bottle, which is more difficult to keep clean than other types of diffusers and can also be expensive to replace if it breaks.
Nebulizers are best for problems such as pain or skin irritation. However, they use more essential oil than other types of diffusers.
An ultrasonic diffuser uses electronic frequencies to create vibrations in the water that create a fine mist of essential oil and water. Some people like to use these as a humidifier in winter to humidify dry air. They are more robust and also cheaper than nebulizers. They use less essential oil than a nebulizer and since they run over a longer period of time they use less essential oil and only need to be topped up every 24 hours.
Ultrasonic diffusers do not emit such a strong concentration of essential oil aroma. They can be useful for ailments such as insomnia, stress or anxiety.
Oil burners are a popular and safe alternative to synthetic air fresheners and scented candles.
This device is used to distribute essential oils in a room or area. It does this by adding essential oils and water to the top cavity of an oil burner, using a tealight candle burning underneath to heat the mixture over it, causing the aroma to dissolve into steam. Through this process, the aroma of the essential oils fills the room and creates a beautiful scent.
Typically, people place a fragrance oil burner in their living areas, bedrooms, and offices.
The advantage of an oil burner is that it is usually cheap to buy, easy to use and easy to keep clean. You simply rinse the cavity and change the fragrance of the essential oil at will.
Evaporative diffusers are pretty simple in how they work. A fan blows air out of the room through a type of pillow or filter that has essential oils dripped on it. Due to the air blowing through the pillow, the oils evaporate faster 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 uses the airflow in the room to subtly distribute it 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.
