More and more people are learning about the amazing benefits of essential oils. While all oils aren't created equal, each option brings with it its own set of benefits and strengths. One of the most common ways to use oils is through aromatherapy. The nose is a powerful tool and the sense of smell can actually greatly impact our emotional, psychological and mental well being. But what many people don't know is that there are many different types of diffusers that can be used to fill the room with the amazing aroma of oils. Listed below are some of the most popular options.
These types of diffusers are perfect if you are a bit of a hypochondriac and controlling germs is important to you. This type of diffuser is great for those times when someone in your family may be coming down with something or feeling under the weather. You can fill this diffuser with your favorite anti-bacterial or anti-viral oils to help aid the nervous system and immune system. It will also help fight off those pesky germs that may be floating in the air already. Depending on the type you get, they can provide aromatic vapors in a space up to 1,000 square feet. Unfortunately, they can sometimes be noisy. They also require more maintenance than some of the other options on the list.
Ceramic Aroma Lamps
These are the most popular options used in the aromatherapy world. With both a candle and your favorite oil, you will notice that the scent will fill the room within a very short amount of time. It gives many rooms a warm feel and fragrance regardless of the oil that is being used. Depending on the type you get, they can sometimes spill and become very hot to the touch.
This option is interesting because it's incredibly low maintenance. These stones have the ability to warm the oils without water, although a tiny bit of water can be added. The stones don't generally get too hot - about the temperature of a warmed baby bottle. These are perfect for the nightstand by your bed. Add some essential oils that promote sleep and relax in the comfort of your peaceful surroundings. This is not an incredibly powerful option, and won't fill an entire room with really heavy-duty fragrance.
These types of diffusers are great if you have young children because they are perfect for those little ones that may be prone to colds, coughs or ear infections. It only requires a small amount of water but acts as both an aromatherapy diffuser and a humidifier for small spaces. The mix of essential oils and water fuse together by ultrasound waves adding necessary humidity to the air. Also, its great for little kids to look at because they're easily intrigued by the light. One of the disadvantages of this option is that it naturally produces a lot of humidity. If you live in a climate that is naturally humid, you may start to feel a bit stuffy.
