Diffusing essential oils is my favorite way to use them. This is like having a natural, healthy, aroma for your room without all of the nasty issues that go along with burning candles or using wall socket plug ins. Diffusing essential oils allows you and your family to enjoy the aromatic therapeutic benefits of essential oils while also freshening the air.
Where to get a diffuser? There are many awesome diffusers on the market. Here’s a link of several available on Amazon. I’m an Amazon affiliate which means that if you decide to purchase a product after clicking on this link, they send me a little thank you check at no extra cost to you.
What type of diffuser to use? You want to use a cold vapor type of diffuser, because heating therapeutic essential oils can change their properties thus losing some of the benefits. The larger the water reservoir the longer the machine can diffuse. Many diffusers have timers, lights, or auto turn off when empty. There are so many styles to fit your room décor or purpose. My daughter uses one as a night light for her room.
How do you use a diffuser? To use, simply add your essential oil drops (5-8 depending on the size of your diffuser), fill the reservoir with room temperature tap water, and then plug in and turn on. You are good to go. Easy! Note: most diffusers have a max fill line. Make sure you don’t fill the water above that line. If you do, the diffuser vapor may not come out. That cold vapor is what brings you the wonderful aromatic and therapeutic benefits.
