Essential oils like lavender oil and jasmine oil offer benefits related to pain, mood and memory function. One of the best ways to receive the benefits of essential oils is through the use of aromatherapy diffusers. These air diffusers work in several different ways and can disperse their contents in a number of different ways. There are many different oils to use for aromatherapy, each with their own separate aroma and health benefits.

What types of aromatherapy diffusers are there?

There are four main types of aromatherapy diffusers and each one have reasons to recommend them. They are:

  • Evaporative
  • Heat
  • Nebulising
  • Ultrasonic

Evaporative aromatherapy diffusers are inexpensive electric devices that are portable and work best in a small space. Heat aromatherapy diffusers are also inexpensive units that use the heat of candles, such as tea candles, to diffuse their contents. Nebuliser aromatherapy diffusers use an atomiser disperse the contents of the diffuser. The concentration is also stronger than with other types of diffusers. Ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers use water to work, similar to the way humidifiers operate. The oils are mixed with water and then put into the oil diffuser's reservoir.

Are there any other aromatherapy diffuser supplies that are needed?
