If you’re interested in dabbling with aromatherapy, there’s no better starting place than an oil diffuser. Oil diffusers allow you to inhale and diffuse your essential oils so that you can enjoy their vast wealth of health and wellbeing benefits, but where can you find the best essential oil diffuser in 2022?
In this article, we’re going to give you the ultimate guide to the best essential oil diffusers on the market, how you can use them, and which one best suits your style. Let’s get started!
What is an oil diffuser?
An oil diffuser is an aromatherapy tool used to diffuse essential oils. It can be used as a device for fragrancing your home, but can also be used for practising aromatherapy; this involves inhaling essential oils in order to access their wide range of health and wellness properties.
Why use an oil diffuser?
Diffusing essential oils allows you to access the benefits of essential oils in particle form; this allows the vapours from the oils to go directly into your nervous system, where you can enjoy the following benefits:
Many essential oils, such as lavender and chamomile, are known for their soothing, sedative properties. Diffusing essential oils in your home can promote calm, tranquillity, and peace in your living space - not to mention gorgeous, aromatic scents.
Certain essential oils are known for their antimicrobial and antibacterial properties; this means that diffusing oils can kill germs and bacteria that might be lingering in the air. Perfect for cold and flu season, an oil diffuser helps keep the air in your home clean.
Energy and concentration
While many essential oils are known for their soothing and calming properties, many others are equally capable of boosting your energy and improving your concentration. You can even diffuse essential oils in the workplace to boost your productivity, so long as you have your own office space and the odours won’t disturb your colleagues.
