Aromatherapy: Essential Oil Diffusers
An aromatherapy diffuser allows you to benefit from aromatherapy by getting the oils into the air. You can use many devices as an aromatherapy diffuser including a vaporizer, humidifier, and nebulizer. An aromatherapy diffuser allows you to inhale the oils to relieve respiratory infections, colds, and asthma.
There are also several types of actual aromatherapy diffusers if you don’t want to use another device you already have in your home for one.
An electric fan aromatherapy diffuser doesn’t use heat. It operates on batteries. It blows cold air through a pad that has been saturated with aromatherapy oils.
A steam aromatherapy diffuser works in a very similar way except it plugs into the wall and hot water creates steam. Aromatherapy oil is added to the water before it begins to boil.
Have you ever wanted to use an aromatherapy diffuser to help you sleep better or maybe get over an illness? While it is tempting, most of us are too afraid of the fire risk to sleep with it on. There is an aromatherapy nebulizer than has a timer on it. This is perfect for getting the scents you need to feel better and rest better without the risk of causing an out of control fire.
Ever wish you had an aromatherapy diffuser to use in your vehicle? Your wish has been granted. The vehicle diffuser comes with small pads that you place drops of oil on. It plugs into your cigarette lighter to fill your car with great smells. Make sure you use a scent that won’t make you sleepy!
A candle can be used as a diffuser as well. Light the candle and allow it to burn for about 15 minutes. Put it out and pour some aromatherapy oil on the melted wax then relight the candle.
A very popular aromatherapy diffuser is the oil burner. It is very inexpensive and it is decorative as well. It comes with a ceramic bowl. You pour water and aromatherapy oil into the bowl. A burner sits under the bowl heating it.
To get the most out of your aromatherapy diffuser, make sure you only use oils that are made from natural products. You should also know what the different plants and herbs can do. For example if you are trying to get a good night of sleep don’t choose one that energizes you. If you have a long evening planned then use the one for energy not to help you sleep! An aromatherapy quick reference guide can help you with this information. The internet is a great place to find it as well. For best results when you want it, keep a supply of various aromatherapy oils available.
