Diffusing essential oils in the air is the best way to purify, humidify and add pleasant smell the air in your home and with that to create a relaxing atmosphere or in the office to enhance concentration and clarity. Of course, to get the most out of the benefits of your favourite essential oil you need an aromatherapy diffuser.
There are several types of the aromathrapy diffusers available on the market, but if you ask me I wouldn’t hesitate to tell you that ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers are the best choice by far. In order to explain why do I think that you can’t go wrong by choosing an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser, let’s go through the main features or more specifically, the working principle of ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers and after that advantages and disadvantages of the other types of essential oil diffusers.
The ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers use electronic frequencies and in this way create vibrations that reach to the surface where the essential oils are stored. The vibrations trigger vaporization of the essential oils and which means that the oils are diffused in the air with no heat used. The main advantages that make the ultrasonic diffusers the best choice among the several different types of diffusers include:
- High oil capacity;
- Easy to use, clean and maintain;
- High level of efficiency, meaning that oils with different viscosity and volatility can be broken down;
- Relatively quiet operation;
- High air saturation;
- Wide area covering;
- Higher air-humidifying effect.
- Achieving a powerful fragnance result with the use of small amounts of oil;
As the name itself implies, this type of diffusers rely on the use of heat to diffuse the essential oils in the air. A heat diffuser can be a good choice for you if all that you want to achieve from diffusing essential oild is your room to smell good. In fact, the heat can change the chemical structure of the oils and with that reduce their effect when diffused in the air.
Cold air Diffuser
This type of diffusers diffuse the essential oils at room temperature. These diffusers can diffuse quickly but their efficiency is not always the same, especially when diffusing thicker oils. Also, the cold air diffuser can be very noisy and hard to clean.
The evoporative diffusers disperse the oils by evaporating them in the air. This is one of the least efficient ways of diffusing essential oils because in this way the lighter oils are diffused much quicker than the thicker ones and because evaporation compromises the efficiency of the oils.
