Diffusing Oils 101
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DIFFUSING ESSENTIAL OILS
Diffusers release essential oils throughout the air, and when you inhale them, the receptors in your olfactory membrane identify and deliver the sensory stimulation messages to your brain, helping you to perceive the aroma and reap the essential oil's therapeutic benefits.
TYPES of DIFFUSION
There are three primary methods of diffusion. You can choose to use a nebulizing diffuser, an ultrasonic diffuser, or a type of passive diffusion.
If you want to experience an essential oil as fully as possible, you’ll want to go with a nebulizing diffuser. By not using heat, which can affect the chemical composition of the oils, and no water, which dilutes the oils, a nebulizer lets you enjoy 100% of all your oil’s benefits. It works by an air pump atomizing the essential oil and releasing the oil into the air in the form of tiny droplets, like a fine mist. Ultrasonic Diffuser These are some of the most popular types of diffusers and perfect for use in the home. This simple technology uses ultrasonic frequencies to vibrate a small disk placed under tap water that releases the oil into a fine mist. Ultrasonic diffusers come in many sleek and attractive designs that fits your modern decor, plug into the wall and only require a small amount of water and a few drops of oil. Passive Diffusion
Passive diffusion is a wonderful alternative to mechanical devices. To passively diffuse an essential oil, there are so many things you can use that are probably just sitting around at your house. A tissue, pinecones from the backyard – even a toilet paper roll! As the evaporation process takes place you will be able to inhale the oil’s molecules. Here are a few more ways to enjoy passive diffusion: diffusing pendants, clay diffusing ornaments, car clip-on diffusers.
