The use of aromatic plant extracts and essential oils for healing and cosmetic purposes.
Diffusers a.k.a essential oil diffusers is a huge trend as many people are making the switch over from candles & incense.
If you would like to know more about the benefits then keep reading as we are going to list the top 5 reasons why you might consider them as part of your daily routine!
What are aromatherapy diffusers?
Ultrasonic diffusers safely disperse the molecules of your preferred essential oil into the air using water and ultrasonic vibrations. Basically, you choose your oil/s, add some water into the device, plug in the diffuser (a.k.a humidifier) and it releases a fresh smelling mist into your room!
1. They are safe for the whole family including pets!
The diffused oil is released into the air in a mist form and is safe to inhale for pets, children and the whole family!
Is it safe for asthmatics?
Studies have shown some essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus, and tea tree, release terpenes, toluene, and benzene, which can be a trigger for some asthmatics. On the other hand, if essential oils such as clove and rosemary are used moderately in a ventilated room and diluted it can help improve respiratory issues.
*Before using any oils it is recommended to research the effects before use!*
2. You can leave it on, unattended
You can have peace of mind if you leave the room or fall asleep with it on. Compared to candles or incense sticks you don't have to worry about them accidentally igniting something that is flammable. Pretty much all these nifty devices have safety features that stop automatically after the water has evaporated or you can set a timer. It is recommended however to not leave any electronic devices switched on when you are not home.
3. You can save money!
