Best Essential Oil Diffusers: Reviews & What I Use
- Dec 11, 2018 -

One of my favorite alternatives is to use an essential oil diffuser, and many people asked what type of diffuser I use and recommend.I’m not an herbalist or aromatherapy expert, but I have tried many types of diffusers and I wanted to share the pros and cons of the ones we’ve tried.

From my experience, not all diffusers are created equal and some work much better than others. I wish that I’d read a review like this before deciding which to purchase and I hope my experience will be helpful to you.

Benefits of Diffusing Essential Oils

So what does diffusing essential oils mean exactly, and why would you do it? Diffusers use various methods to disperse essential oil containing water droplets through the air in a fine continuous mist.

Far from being just a natural substitute for air freshener and nothing more, each type of essential oil contains powerful chemical properties (the “essence”) from its parent plant. These chemicals bind to our olfactory receptors (how we smell) and have an actual effect on our limbic system. These nerves in our brains control our hunger, emotions, anger, sleep, and more, so it makes sense diffusing oils can have a real effect.

that diffusing essential oils can produce the following benefits, depending on the type of oil:

  • reduces stress

  • improves mental clarity

  • uplifts the mood

  • calms and promotes a sedative effect (useful before sleep)

  • purifies the air

In fact, essential oils are so much more than air fresheners that we need to be cautious how we use them around our homes and our children.
