How do essential oil diffusers work?

 

Diffusers are the best way to enjoy the aroma and therapeutic benefits of essential oils. The benefits of course, depend on you choosing the best essential oil diffusers and especially the essential oil. The wide variety of essential oils available has created a booming trend in the aromatherapy diffuser industry. The vast array of models, sizes and features can be confusing, but generally they all operate using the same principle.

Basically, drops of essential oils are added to the diffuser that has been filled with water. When the diffuser runs, steam is produced which allows the droplets of essential oils to be carried (diffused) into the air you breathe. Of course, the aroma is one benefit, but once the drops of essential oils become airborne it helps to filter out the chemical and metals that may be in the atmosphere, and that is when it offers those wonderful therapeutic benefits.

There are a number of types available, but the majority is either: evaporative, ultrasonic, nebulizing or heat:

Evaporative Diffusers – These diffusers have a basic operation in which air blows through a filter and the essential oil evaporates onto the filter. The advantage of these diffusers is that they are quiet, but if the essential oil is too light it will diffuse faster than the heavier oils.

 

Ultrasonic Diffusers – These are the most popular oil diffusers. They use electrical frequencies to create vibrations that evaporate the oils to the surface and diffuse into the air as micro-particles. No heat is used, which can decrease the aromatic health benefits of the essential oils. Again, it reduces the metallic negative ions from the air, which can control sleeping, digestion, and relaxation. Most tend to run silently and come with colored light features and uniquely creative designs that, on their own, are a feature themselves for the home or office.

 

Nebulizing Diffusers – These types of diffusers atomizes the essential oil into micro-particles using a cold air pump or a jet-style atomizer. The outcome is to ionize the oil molecules and keep them remaining in the air longer, maximizing the health and fragrance benefits of the oils. One thing to remember, you will want to diffuse pure essential oils with these diffusers, not those mixed with other oils, like vegetable oil. Use thinner based oils, not thicker ones like patchouli and sandalwood.

 

Heat Diffusers – As the name suggests, heat is used to diffuse the essential oil into the air. However, it is not recommended as it will change the chemistry of the essential oil. But they are completely silent, and are probably best if you just want to create a better smelling room.

 

Features in choosing the best essential oil diffuser

 

  • Air Saturation Level – This measures how much the diffuser can diffuse the oil into the air for a certain amount of time. A high rating means a larger area the diffuser will cover. The actual measurement depends on the room size, climate and the essential oil itself. Diffusers with a “Very high” rating will produce a higher output of the essential oil.
  • Room Size/Coverage – If your aim is to only use it in a bedroom, then a smaller size is all that is required
  • Noise Level –  Some people sleep well with some minor background noise, and other people just need absolute quiet.
  • How long can it diffuse continuously?
  • Can it shut off automatically?
  • Cleaning – See if cleaning is a lengthy process, or relatively easy and quick. Most diffusers can be cleaned with an alcohol rub.
  • Water capacity – the bigger the tank the more water you can store for longer diffusing time.
  • What you want to achieve – pain relief, easier breathing, mood elevation, sleep & relaxation, cognitive enhancement, or even deter insects.

It is really easy to clean. I have used different fragrances in this diffuser and each time the aroma smells clean and exactly how it’s suppose to smell. It also sterilizes, purifies, and ionizes the water and oils which was a big plus for me.

The LED lights are very pretty, but I since I use it mainly at night, I generally have them turned off. I find the auto-shut off function gives me peace of mind that the diffuser isn’t “running on empty” and going to burn out. While the unit is fairly small and only holds 100mL in tis reservoir, that is perfect for a small to medium size bedroom, office or even kitchen. The Riverock has a streamlined design that works well with many different decor styles, and a smooth, intuitive operation.

    I bought a diffuser a while back and use lavender to help with my snoring. Can you recommend another oil or blend. Thank you for your blog, I enjoy reading them.

    I have a couple of diffusers that I use around the home, the ZAQ Dew was the first one I bought and have had no issues. I love them but you do have to clean them regularly.

    I just wanted to say thank you for these reviews. I am often confused with the different types that are out there so your article has been very helpful. I use Edens Garden essential oils mainly because they offer great synergy blends and their price is relatively inexpensive compared to some of the other larger companies.
