A Quick Introduction To Oil Diffusers (vaporizers)
Jun 08, 2016

Simply put, in this context diffusion is the process used to disperse the aroma of essential oils. Depending upon the method used, the scent may fill the whole room or maybe just give a pleasant aroma to those within a small radius of the diffuser. If you want to see how basic diffusion works without a lot of tools, apply a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to a tissue. Hold the tissue and place it near a fan, blow on it, or simply hold it and notice that as the tissue moves it releases the aroma of your favorite essential oil.


If the tissue experiment did not fully explain how a diffuser works, try another experiment that will diffuse aroma throughout your entire room. For this experiment, boil two cups of water and then add about 10 drops of your favorite essential oil into the pot with the water. The steam, which is evaporation from the water, will carry the aroma of the essential oil throughout the entire room you are in. Unlike a traditional diffuser, however, the aroma will not last very last.


A diffuser for essential oils works much like the tissue and the boiling water with your favorite essential oil. Instead, the diffuser works on a larger scale. The tissue only provided aroma in a very small area whereas a diffuser will generally provide the aroma to a broader area. This is useful because you clearly cannot walk around holding up a tissue or carrying a pot of boiling water all day. This is why you need to learn about traditional essential oil diffusers.
