The most popular way to use essential oils is by inhaling them, both for their fantastic scent and therapeutic properties. However, they can also be used in diffusers and humidifiers, and diluted with a carrier oil when applied topically.
When inhaled, Essential Oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that involves the sense of smell, behaviors, emotions, and long-term memory.
A diffuser is a means to disperse essential oils into the air. There are many types of essential oil diffusers that you can use, but we have picked out the safest and most effective ways to scent your space and boost your wellness:
The Earth Diffuser
The Earth Diffuser is an unglazed ceramic plate that diffuses essential oils without fire or electricity. Suitable for placement around your desk or bedside for a subtle aroma, it is a great way to scent your space naturally and a perfect option for scenting your drawers, closets and cabinets!
How to use: Apply 8 to 10 drops of essential oil directly onto the plate. The essential oil will evaporate slowly to release a delicate scent. Reapply once you feel like the scent has faded.
The Ascent Diffuser
On the other hand, the Ascent Diffuser is an ultrasonic diffuser that disperses essential oils into the air through vibrations of a plate, causing ultrasonic waves that then create tiny particles of oils that spread into the air.
Fill the water tank as directed in the instructions of the diffuser, then add 8 to 10 drops of essential oils depending on the desired scent, whether uplifting, stimulating, comforting or relaxing.
Vibrations from the diffuser cause the essential oils to mix with water vapor and disperse as a very fine mist into the air. No heat is used, which means that the oil is intact and not broken down, so you can enjoy both the benefits and excellent scents of pure essential oils.
Thoughtfully designed to generate a continuous stream of your favorite essential oils, these diffusers are perfect for scenting spacious rooms and open spaces and are a great option in areas with children due to the reduced risk compared to a candle.
