One of the most popular uses for essential oils is aromatherapy. Whether you’re smelling lavender oil to reduce stress or orange oil to energize, there are many benefits to using essential oils in aromatherapy. With that said, you want to make sure that you choose a diffuser allows you the best benefits of the oils. Let’s take a closer look at the best essential oil diffusers.
Best Essential Oil Diffusers
Considered the best diffusers on the market, nebulizing diffusers work by blowing air across a tube to create a vacuum that pulls the essential oils from the tube and sprays the oil into the air. This results in the whole oil being dispersed at once. This type of diffuser puts a lot of oil into the air at once. It can also be very loud. However, for aromatherapy purposes, it’s the best way to get the benefits of essential oils from a diffuser.
If you want to use a smaller amount of oil in your remedies, an ultrasonic diffuser is an excellent choice. One of the best parts of the ultrasonic diffuser is that is uses zero heat energy. This means that the oil is not compromised by the machine. Instead, a plate in the machine vibrates to break the oil up and disperse it into the room along with a mist of water. The droplets of the oil are so small that they are easily absorbed by the lungs. Again, very little essential oil is used in this process. You’ll only need to add 10 drops per cup of water.
Rocky Mountain Oils has their own brand of diffusers. I have one that we bought and it’s still going strong but with the cold and flu season upon us, I think I want to get a second one to put in the boy’s room whenever someone else needs it. We seem to get sick at the same time.
Last, but not least, evaporative diffusers are worth considering, but not as good as the two diffusers listed above. The way these diffusers work is that oil is placed on a pad and a fan behind the pad disperses the oil into the air. The problem with this is that you get different compounds of the oil at different times, which can alter the benefits of the oil. However, this is a quieter option than the nebulizing diffuser that helps gets the scent of the oil throughout the room.
These are the best essential oil diffusers to choose from. You can also find heated diffusers, but these alter the chemical compounds of essential oils and should be avoided, if at all possible. All of these diffusers are easy to find, but some will be more expensive than others. Make sure to read the reviews thoroughly before making your choice.
