Ultrasonic oil diffuser: What you need to know
Ultrasonic essential oil diffusers are more popular than ever. An ultrasonic oil diffuser is an enjoyable and effective way to experience aromatherapy in your home, work or wherever you want to feel relaxed.
How does an ultrasonic oil diffuser work?
It works pretty easy. Through air diffusion, a few drops of essential oil can deliver therapeutic aromatherapy throughout one or more rooms while clearing the air and creating a pleasantly fragrant environment.
What kind of ultrasonic oil diffusers are there?
There are many different types of diffusers to choose from, from lamp rings to candle burners to water vapor diffusion. Since heat can cause essential oils to evaporate and degrade quickly, cold air diffusion is typically preferred over heat diffusion to obtain full therapeutic effects. Single essential oils can be chosen for the desired effect, or several essential oils can be used in the diffuser together to create a custom aroma with multiple therapeutic benefits.
Diffusers disperse essential oils as a fine vapor throughout the air so they can be absorbed gently into the body through the respiratory system. The aroma can prompt the nervous system to transmit signals to the limbic system in the brain – the same part of the brain that houses emotion and memory. The brain may respond by initiating various physiological functions, such as a release of hormones, relief from pain, or a positive boost in mood.
