Various Types of Aromatherapy Electric Diffusers
Potpourri, candles, sprays and even wacky jars called reed diffusers stuffed with weeds are just a few of the many ways to make a room smell terrific. Those who like essential oils may have trouble finding ways to let the oil scent fill a desired room. Using cool evaporation and plugging in an aromatherapy electric diffuser are two of the most popular methods.
Since the days of the Egyptians the technique of using cool air to carry the fragrance of an essential oil has been around and it may have even been used earlier. All you have to do for this technique is fill a shallow stone, wood or metal bowl with fifteen to twenty drops of your favorite essential oil blend. Sniff the air after letting it sit. For use in your car as air fresheners you can also use wood discs impregnated with oils.
Placing a thin metal bowl on a stand that sits over a votive candle is a method some products use to take advantage of heat.
Aromatherapy Electric Diffuser
Many aromatherapy electric diffusers look like small egg shaped, space age buildings. A cotton pad is held at the bottom of the aromatherapy electric diffuser on a small tray. Slide the tray shut and plug in the diffuser after you place about twenty drops of your favorite essential oil on the pad. To create a gentle air current a fan will begin to run to help the scent of the oil spread throughout the room in a matter of minutes.
Every couple of hours you will need to add essential oil drops to the pad again. After about thirty minutes you may find that you can no longer smell the fragrance. This doesn’t mean that the aromatherapy electric diffuser is no longer working. Rather the human sense of smell adapts to continuous scents and essentially begins to stop registering it. Return to the room after walking outside for a couple of deep breaths. As a result the fragrance will come back to you.
If you want to fill your entire house with a fragrance then a nebulizing diffuser is the right choice. Essential oil is turned into a mist with nebulizers and then sprayed into the air by a pump. To match with décor these diffusers come in many design and color options.
If portability is a concern you can find aromatherapy electric diffusers that run on batteries. To create a cozy atmosphere many travelers will set up diffusers in their hotel rooms.
