The method of distributing essential oils in a certain space is called diffusion. The intent behind diffusion is to infuse the surrounding space with scent. When we talk about an essential oil diffuser for aromatherapy, it is a small device designed to diffuse essential oils into the air.
Apart from creating a pleasant atmosphere in the air, these devices are used for a variety of therapeutic reasons. There are several different diffusers that can be used as essential oils for everyday use.
Below are the most common diffusers:
Evaporative Dispersant: This type of diffuser has a closed container in which the oil evaporates. The vaporized oil is dispersed in the air and fills the environment.
They are great for smaller spaces and are not recommended for outdoors. Examples are pendants made of clay and diffusers made of sugarcane.
Thermal Diffuser: In this device, essential oils are heated to encourage diffusion throughout the room. They may be an inexpensive option, but they are not suitable if you want to reap the therapeutic benefits of the oil.
This is because heating can change the properties of essential oils. These include spark plugs, ring lights, spark plug diffusers, electronic heat diffusers, and vapor diffusion.
Diffuser sprays: They break down essential oils into tiny particles before distributing them throughout the room.
They usually have an engine and a housing for the cylinders. The smaller molecules easily absorb the air and increase its therapeutic benefits. Maintenance is less easy compared to other diffusers.
