Aromatherapy Diffusers

What Is An Aromatherapy Diffuser?

Let's start with the basic definition of a diffuser. A diffuser is any device that is used to allow a liquid to evaporate. This evaporation results in the scent of that liquid going out into the surrounding area.

So an aromatherapy diffuser would be some device where special aromatherapy oils are used for the liquid, which puts the scent of these oils into the surrounding area.

To get the full aromatherapy health benefits from your essential oils, you will use a special type of diffuser called an aromatherapy nebulizer.

Diffusion of Aromatherapy Oils

Diffusion of these oils can be accomplished in four different ways:
  • Heat - heat from a candle or even an electrically heated vaporizer can be used. This will cause whichever aromatherapy essential oils you are using to evaporate into the surrounding air.
  • Ventilation - a small fan can be used. Air flowing over the the oil causes it to evaporate.
  • Humidification - mixing water and the essential oil together. A fan, heat, or ultrasonic waves of energy can be used to create a mist that will fill the air.
  • Nebulization - this is special process that breaks down the aromatherapy oils into very small particles. This process requires a high speed, pressurized air stream in combination with a unique jet nozzle. By using this process, the evaporation occurs almost instantly.
So your aromatherapy diffuser can use any of the above four ways to get your aromatherapy scents into the air.

Aromatherapy Nebulizer

You will need a special type of diffuser, called a nebulizer of all things, in order to use the nebulization process listed above.. This process allows you to get the most aroma and the biggest therapeutic (or health) benefits from the essential oils that you choose to use. So if you are looking to get rid of your asthma symptoms for example, you will definitely want to use an aromatherapy nebulizer instead of a standard aromatherapy diffuser.

Benefits of a Nebulizer

  • Using heat works very well to gently fill the room with the scent of your oil. The drawback is that it changes the chemical composition of the oil, which lessens the therapeutic value. Also, because of the size of the molecules produced, they get filtered out in the nose and nasal cavity before they can be absorbed..
  • Ventilation also works very well to fill a smaller room with the scent of your choosing. But again, because of the size of the molecules, there are limited health benefits.
  • Humidification offers some health benefits but not too much healing ability because there is less actual oil in the air because it is mixed with water.
  • Nebulization is without a doubt the best way to get both a great scent into the room and to take advantage of the special healing powers of your aromatherapy oils. The chemical composition of the oils does not get changed, but the molecules produced are small enough for the lungs and body to absorb them very rapidly.
So when looking for an aromatherapy diffuser that utilizes the healing powers of essential oils, you want one that uses nebulization. If all you want is to take advantage of the wonderful aromas of your aromatherapy oils, then one of the three other types will work very well.
