Following is a description of various styles of aromatherapy diffusers. This will help you find the diffuser that best suits your needs.
Aromatherapy essential oil burner. This type of diffuser consists of placing the essential oil burner above the candle. You light the candle and the heat causes the essential oil to be released into the air.
Aromatherapy nebulizer. A nebulizer is made up of a piece of glass that holds the essential oil. Nebulizers break down the essential oils and release the aromatic scents into the air. Be careful with this type of diffuser as the glass is breakable.
Aromatherapy candle. You use the candle in a different manner than you think. First, let the candle burn for approximately 5-10 minutes. Then put out the candle and place 1 drop of essential oil on the melted portion of the candle. Next relight the candle, but be very careful because essential oils are volatile, so they can catch on fire.
Aromatherapy steam. You will need essential oils, a bowl, and boiling water. Boil 2 cups of water and add it to the bowl. Next place 10 drops of the essential oil to the boiling water. The heat from the boiling water heats up the essential oils causing the essential oil to emit its wonderful, soothing scent into the air. This gives a potent aroma that fades out rather quickly.
Aromatherapy tissue. A quick and inexpensive diffusion method is to place 2-3 drops of essential oils on a tissue. Inhale the sweet scent of the aroma.
Aromatherapy electric fan. These diffusers run off of electricity hence the name. Basically, a battery operated fan blows air against a pad that is filled with essential oil.
Potpourri. You can set out dried herbs in a bowl. Add a few drops of essential oils to pack more of a punch from the potpourri.
A major benefit to diffusers is that you have so many different options. The aromatherapy industry is evolving everyday creating new diffuser methods and products. You can use these diffusers in your home, car, and anywhere you want as long as you keep safety precautions in mind. Find a diffuser that suits your needs and you can enjoy the beneficial effects of aromatherapy on a daily basis.
