The world of aromatherapy is as vast as it is interesting. Essential oils can offer a variety of benefits, including boosting your relaxation, helping you sleep, and combating anxiety.
One of the ways you can make the most of these oils is by using an aromatherapy diffuser. In this quick guide, we’ll take a look at what you need to know about these devices.
What is an Aromatherapy Diffuser?
Also known as an essential oils diffuser, an aromatherapy diffuser is a handy gadget that disperses essential oil fumes. If you’re looking to gain some of the amazing health benefits of aromatherapy, you can use one of these machines in your down-time.
The truth of the matter is that there are many different types of aromatherapy diffusers. You can find some that look natural—made of wood or even bamboo—or others that look positively space-aged. The choice is 100% yours!
When you’ve invested in an essential oils diffuser, there are plenty of ways to use it. You can put it on when you’re going to sleep to create a relaxing, peaceful environment. Alternatively, you may find that it’s helpful to use when you’re meditating alone.
How to Use an Aromatherapy Diffuser
Now that you know what an aromatherapy diffuser is, let’s delve into how you use one. While brands will differ, most of these gadgets work the same way. You will have a basin (i.e. a bowl in which you put water and essential oils) and a lid.
Some essential oil diffusers will also have added extras such as lights that change when they are on or even music. Whichever device you happen to have, chances are, you will need to follow these simple steps to get started.
Step 1: Fill up the basin
The first step is filling up the basin. You will need to use cold water in the bowl. Most of the time, the aromatherapy diffuser will have a maximum capacity line on its inside.
Step 2: Add the essential oils
Next, you will need to add a few droplets of the essential oils to the basin. You should read the instructions on the oil that you have as they may vary when it comes to potency.
Step 3: Pop the lid on
When you’ve done all of the above, the next step is to put the lid on. This part of the diffuser will have a small hole in the top, where the fumes will come out of it.
Step 4: Turn it on!
Once you’ve set up your aromatherapy diffuser, the final step is to turn it on. Some of these devices have timers so you can set a specific program. Check out the gadget instructions for more information about how to manage your machine.
