When it comes to natural healing or inducing the true essence of nature into modern lifestyle, aromatherapy diffuser for essential oils is simply matchless. This supreme device has proved itself as a boon in improving health, increasing energy levels, enhancing sleep and relieving stress. When markets are flooded with different types of diffusers, it becomes very important to make an educated choice. But prior to choose the right device, it is equally important to pick the right essential oil for certain preferred needs. These aromatic substances are the purest natural oils of the plants that are extracted through the procedures of steam distillation or cold pressing.

The concept of oil diffusers came into limelight when experts observed that diffusing aromatic oils into air was the best type of aromatherapy. When the aroma and medicinal properties of an essential oil are diffused in air, the user automatically connects to the life force of the plant by inhaling it. The strong aroma of these oils infiltrates and synchronizes the natural energy inside of our body. The best part with diffusers is that they easily disperse the aromatherapy oils in large rooms or the whole house. When it comes to choosing a diffuser for your home or office, some of the popular categories are ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers, nebulisers, electronic heat diffusers, terracotta and sandstone diffusers, steam diffusers, fan diffusers, candle diffusers, lamp ring diffusers etc.

Of all these devices, heat diffusers and candle diffusers are effective in terms of spreading aroma only. Since essential oil is heated in these diffusers, therefore the medicinal properties of the oil are lost – and what you get is just the strong aroma. Contrary to this, the ultrasonic diffusers utilize non-heat high-frequency waves that do not affect the natural healing properties of oils. Moreover, this device is used by adding water with aromatherapy oil, so that you get a steady cool mist of soothing soft swirls in the air. These noiseless diffusers are perfect for use at night because they switch off automatically when the tank is out of water/oil.

A diffuser for essential oils disperses the aromatic essential oils into air. These cool mists – containing medicinal properties – travel through the nerves of our nose to the brain. The strong aroma of these aromatherapy oils then calms down the part of the brain that controls the feelings and emotions or senses pain. Some of the wonderful benefits of these diffusers are:

  • Purify the air by killing bacteria and fungus that are present in the air
  • Reduce dust in the air by releasing negative ions
  • Offer relaxation and relieve stress
  • Offer enhanced sleep and fight insomnia
  • Boost immunity
  • Promote mental alertness and concentration
  • Elevate mood by inspiring high spirits
  • Keep cold, flu and other routine illnesses at bay
  • Help breathe easier by reducing inflammation and congestion in clogged airways
  • Relieve headache and relax muscles
  • Repel insects
  • Fight bad odours caused due to cigarette smoking or pets in the house

These diffusers not only offer an untouched therapeutic treatment but also nullify the risk of direct skin contact with the aromatherapy oils, which may cause skin irritation.
