When I first got into essential oils one of the biggest challenges for me was deciding which diffuser I wanted to purchase. There are 4 different types of essential oil diffusers:
- Evaporative diffuser
- Heat diffuser
- Nebulizer diffuser
- Ultrasonic diffuser
The nebulizer and ultrasonic are the most expensive diffusers, but to me they give the best results.
This type of diffuser can be either a clay pendant or reed diffuser where the essential oils are exposed to air so they naturally evaporate and are dispensed into the air. If using the reed diffuser, you would want to use it in a small area.
This type of diffuser can be either a steam diffuser, candle diffuser, lamp ring or electric heat diffuser. The essential oils are heated to promote diffusion within the room for a wonderful smell in the room. The downside of the heat diffuser is when using therapeutic grade essential oils, the therapeutic properties of the essential oils are lost when heated.
With the nebulizer diffuser the essential oils are broken down into tiny molecules before being dispersed into the room allowing for the smaller molecules to be more easily absorbed. This increases the therapeutic benefits of the essential oils.
This is my favorite diffuser since it uses electronic frequencies to create vibrations in the water. This creates a fine mist of water and essential oils that are released into the air. Since these types of diffusers also use water, it helps humidify dry air in a room. Some of the ultrasonic diffusers have an automatic shutoff of them which is a great benefit to control the amount of essential oils being dispersed into the air.
