As a mother of 3 naughty angles at home, a psychology graduate, a keen researcher and a self oriented product guide, I have gone through 10 challenging years of continuous learning and achievement. During these years, I have been trying to keep my home a calm and relaxed place for my family and especially for my kids. I never have encouraged the use of unnecessary medications, pills, relaxation treatments other than nature based ingredients and components taken from around our natural habitat.

I have always tried to help others, find the best solutions for their problems or assist them to find the latest gadgets, appliances that only use nature based products or ingredients or even certain processes that are already around us and can help counter our issues if paired with the latest technological gadgets.

So, here is my latest find based on the nature based alternative methods that can help everybody to live a healthy, pure and calm life with days full of joy and nights having a soothing effect every time you need to relax your nerves. For a nature inspired life this is my second venture, while the first was about exploring the health benefits of the white noise machine in calming nerves and reducing noise based stress.

Let’s start with the introduction and a little about essential oil diffusers and what they can do for you.

What you need to know about essential oil diffuser?

An essential oil diffuser refers to a little gadget, that works to diffuse an aroma oil or essential oil into the air to disperse the aroma along with its natural components.

Though it’s a basic thing, but still I should tell here: diffusion is a process through which anything or element in the form of small particles or vapors can be dispersed to the areas where the concentration of any element is low or may be at zero.

Though, in old times, people use to diffuse essential oils through various methods. These oils were put on a piece of cloth to inhale, or heated gently to diffuse the oil around the room. But as a fact, such methods have limited utility and had a lot of issues. Through these methods people were not able to diffuse the oils for long hours and required consistency.

What we have got today are the essential oil diffusers that come in various forms and features and offer various levels of performances, the volume of the EO diffusion and qualities for the user.

Among the most commonly found diffusers found today include, humidifiers, reed diffusers, nebulizers, ultrasonic diffusers, heat diffusers, etc. All these forms of diffusers are preferred for various uses and the amount of EO that is required to be diffused in the air.

A brief intro about various forms of diffusers:

Reed diffusers: uses reeds dipped in the mixture of Eos and diffuses the oils into the air

Reed diffusers

 

Heating diffusers: heat the EOs to diffuse them in the air(the process harms the chemical composition of the essential oils and may not entertain you to enjoy all the EO health benefits you can avail otherwise). Only benefit via scent of the EOs.

heating diffuser

Ultrasonic diffusers: uses ultrasonic frequencies vibrate the container’s base where you have placed the EO mixture and that causes the micro particles of water and the EOs to get diffused in the air.

Ultrasonic diffusers

Humidifiers: humidifiers are the diffusers that causes heavy diffusion of water molecules along EOs and the heavy steam comes out of the diffuser. Not suitable when you are living in humid conditions.

humidifiers

Nebulizers: nebulizers make use of steam passing above the essential oil reservoir and create and aromatic steam. These are best for inhaling purpose in winters for blocked nose, skin issues and allergy treatments. Not best for continuous usage because it will increase humidity levels and are not beneficial in the summers or humid conditions.

Nebulizers

Incense

Incenses are also used to create a soothing environment through fabulous fragrances extracted from natural sources, i.e plants, herbs and flowers. The incense that consists of EO extracts as their scent, are good for the purpose to spread a soothing smell around, but cannot diffuse the EOs in its natural form as they use heat to spread the scent.

Now skipping through these types, I’d like to give you an idea about how and why one is better than all of these types. Though all of these have their own uses and benefits for particular circumstances, but one type is the KING of all, because all uses and benefits are covered by the one I am referring to. It is the ultrasonic diffusers I am talking about.

Here is why you should buy an ultrasonic diffuser instead of other EO diffusion methods:

If you have got a best essential oil diffuser in your hand, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits, that you might be able to avail by using multiple diffuser types that I already have discussed.

You may know the following facts about using an essential oil diffuser:

  • You can use an ultrasonic diffuser as a humidifier as it creates a mist while diffusing the oils.
  • You can use it as a nebulizer by selecting its heavy diffusion mode (if offered by the product you have got)
  • You can use it in place of reed diffusers as they will give you a continuous scent around you without using heat

 

Why should I buy an essential oil diffuser machine?

Why you should do this? Why you should not use other ways to diffuse EOs, when you have a best essential oil diffuser? Here are the reasons:

Ultrasonic essential oil diffusers don’t heat EOs, do they would not change or alter its natural composition and you can benefit from all the healthy components the oil has.

  1. They can be used in any weather, atmospheric or climatic conditions as you can control the amount of mist produced.
  2. You can use the ultrasonic diffusers again and again while some of the other methods like reeds, and incense may require continuous disposal of old units and placing new ones.
  3. Ultrasonic diffusers come with added features like lights and sounds which make it a multifaceted gadget and will serve even better and can serve in varied conditions, playing many roles, like as a night light, a sound conditioner, etc.
  4. They are easy to carry, easy to operate and also can be maintained and cleaned for a long time usage.
