Essential Oil Diffuser Facts
Aromatherapy diffusers spread the love!
Using an essential oil diffuser is an easy, effective way to add a wonderful dimension of comfort, energy, and healthiness to your home.
Aromatherapy diffusers work by vaporizing essential oils and then allowing them to disperse either by natural air movement or by use of the diffuser's fan.
You can use a diffuser to create a warm, comforting environment with scents like lavender and vanilla.
Or you can cleanse the air and lift the energy with lemon or eucalyptus.
Diffusers are an excellent way to disinfect the air in sickrooms, as well as to help relieve cold and flu symptoms such as coughing, stuffiness and chest congestion.
Not to mention cheering sickies up! Click here to learn about antiviral essential oils.
My sister uses an aromatherapy diffuser at night to calm and relax her young children,
making bedtime less of a battle. (I LOVE this idea - wish I'd tried it years ago!)
Essential oil diffusers are effective, practical, safe and attractive (mostly!)
They come in several different types, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
They're suitable for just about any room in your house, plus your office and your car.
They range in price from pennies (I once found an aroma lamp for a dollar at my grocery store!) to over $100.
Generally speaking, aromatherapy nebulizers are the
most effective type of diffuser because of the way they process essential oils.
They're also the most expensive essential oil diffusers (of course!) but well worth the investment.
Potpourris are very simple aromatherapy diffusers.
They're fun and easy to make, and they look (and smell!) so pretty in a bowl on your dresser or counter-top.
Here's a recipe for Citrus and Cinnamon Potpourri. Enjoy!
And don't forget about candles!
Making your own soy aromatherapy candles is a bit more challenging, but SO rewarding!
(I make them as holiday gifts every year.)
