Updated on October 5, 2014

Aromatherapy Diffusers

Using an aromatherapy diffuser around the home can be a fantastic way of creating an atmosphere of comfort, happiness and warmth for family and friends. Whenever someone visits, they will be instantly refreshed and will be enriched by the experience.

Following are methods for diffusing essential oils with items that are already present in the house:

Methods for diffusing essential oils

Simple Tissue Diffusion

Put 3-4 drops of any essential oil on a paper tissue. Keep the tissue close to you. Whenever some movement happens in the room like you moving or someone passing by, you will benefit from the aroma.

Steam Diffusion

Boil 2 cups of water and pour it into a bowl. Add about 10 drops of oil to the hot water. Make sure you use only a few drops of oil if you are using certain oil that causes irritation to the mucous membranes like, eucalyptus, cinnamon, pine, cajuput, thyme, rosemary, etc. Steam diffusion is best for any time of the day if you use relaxing or energizing oils. Basically, the steam heats the oil and causes it to quickly evaporate.

Candle Diffusion

Light a candle and let it burn for approximately 5 minutes. Put out the candle, put 1 drop of essential oil in the melted wax and then light the candle again. Take care while lighting the candle, as essential oils are highly flammable.

Lamp Rings

A lamp ring is a terra-cotta ring, which can be set directly on a light bulb. This ring has a grooved lip that winds round the bulb that lip holds the essential oil. Basically the heat from the light bulb heats up the essential oil in the Lamp Ring. The aroma is gradually then spread all over the room

Clay Pot Diffusers

Clay pot diffusers are known by different names, but they look like small terra-cotta pots. These diffusers can be found in different small shapes, like pyramids. The clay pot diffusers contain an opening to add essential oils. Generally a cork is used for closing the open part. The essential oils filter through the pot and then spread throughout the room. Concentration of the aroma depends on the amount of essential oil added to the clay pot.

Food hydrators are used by as diffusers for essential oils. One can directly dry up evergreen branches in the machine for the aroma or place a wet sponge with some drops of essential oil or vanilla oil on the dehydrator. Nevertheless, it is obvious that you should follow all instructions and safety precautions for the dehydrator model and leave the dehydrator running only for a short period of time for this purpose.
