Aromatherapy allows us to fill our homes with the scents of our favorite essential oils.
Whether you use essential oils to freshen up the air in your home, during meditation, or in your DIY projects – aromatherapy is a versatile and wonderful hobby. But what’s the best way to enjoy the joys of these oils? The truth is, there are many options and it all comes down to personal preference. Here are our favorite ways to diffuse essential oils to enjoy all of the wonders of aromatherapy:
These diffusers use electric frequencies to produce a fine mist from essential oil added to water. Ultrasonic diffusers do not use heat, but rather use vibrations that carry oil and water particles into the air. Sometimes, this method is referred to as nebulizing.
These products use warmth to disperse scents, typically by gently heating a pad containing essential oils. Models known as “burners” are powered by a single tea light candle, but plug-in models can be more precise in warming the oil.
A simple and inexpensive method involving carrier oil mixed with your favorite essential oils. When specialized reeds are placed in the container, the oil travels up the sticks to release its aroma. Creating your own reed diffuser is a fun and easy DIY project, you can check out our instructions here!
Another great way to enjoy the scents of your favorite essential oils is by making your own candles. While not a diffuser, this is a great project for the crafty aromatherapy lover, making candles makes for a great way to choose and blend your favorite oils.
