There are several types of essential oil diffusers: the classic candle,speakersfrom specifically developed radiators, burners, vaporizers and essence diffusers.

On this page we talk aboutessential oil diffusers and we will give you some tips on how to use essential oils and spread them with DIY methods.

Diffusers of essential oils, warnings and precautions for use

Many portals recommend mixing essential oils with the water of the dehumidifiers that rest in direct contact with the radiators. Again, widespread advice is to insert a few drops of essential oils in a spray bottle containing 300 ml of water.


These tips do not take into account a crucial factor: theessential oilsthey are hydrophobic therefore notmisciblein water. Theessential oils, when pure, they tend to create an agglomerate that remains, in a certain sense, isolated from the water, the oily phase (the drops of essential oil) tend to separate from the aqueous phase (water), therefore there will be no distribution homogeneous ofessential oils, the result? Adiffusioninefficient! In these circumstances, the user is usually led to believe that the essential oil used is not of good quality, or that the diffuser activated does not work as it should.

To use theessential oilstogether with water, it will be necessary to use a dispersing agent capable of making essential oils miscible in water. The same concept applies to icandle essential oil diffusers and for humidifiers / diffusers / vaporizers…. this concept does not apply with iessential oil diffuserswhich function as burners even if the application of heat tends to alter the properties of the essential oil.


Another drawback of theessential oil diffusersa candle lies in the fact that the flame tends to overheat the container body, making it dangerous especially in the presence of children.

Diffusers of electric essential oils

To remedy, at least in part, the problem of the immiscibility of essential oils, it is recommended to buy essential oils already in solution or, if you want to buy pure essential oils, we recommend the use of essence diffusers with a small capacity tank.

On the market there are 200 ml essence diffusers that force you to refill every 2 - 4 hours and diffusers with 750 - 1000 ml capacity tanks that guarantee autonomy up to 24 hours. In this there are middle ground: the ideal is to buy aessential oil diffuserwith a capacity of 500 - 600 ml which guarantees an autonomy of 8 - 16 hours. In this way, the essences will still be diffused in the environment until the right amount of time remains. Only experience will tell you how many drops to use to obtain a satisfactory result for your sense of smell.

Among the variousessence diffuserson the market we point out the Aukey aroma diffuser and humidifier (model BE-A5). Thisdiffuser of essencesoffers a 500ml tank and a system capable of dispensingessential oilsin three different ways (low Mistie low intensity up toHigh mist, i.e. with more frequent aromatic vapor diffusions).

In addition to diffusing aromatic vapor, theessential oil diffuseracts as an ionizer and has 7 different LEDs to illuminate with a soft light (and different shades) during the night. This aroma diffuser is offered on Amazon at a price of 38.99 euros with free shipping costs.

THEdiffusers for electric essential oilsthey are very practical and the market offers them in different shapes and for every type of need. Also in this case, the essential oil is mixed in water and sprayed into the environment in the form of steam.

Some models ofelectric essential oil diffusersthey are correlated with colored lights so as to offer, at the same time, aromatherapy and chromotherapy. The chromotherapy action is mild but is effective when used in small rooms and with soft lighting, perhaps during a relaxing shower or while taking a bath.

The market proposesessential oil diffuserselectric for every need and design style and above all for every budget. There are essential oil diffusers that work likeburners(they do not produce steam) and others that also act as humidifiers, so they vaporize the essential oils together with the water. If you use essential oil diffusers with a high capacity tank, remember to use a dispersing agent (if you usepure essential oil), or buy an essential oil already in aqueous solution and then ready to be inserted into yours diffuser - vaporizerelectric.

following several e-mails asking me for an alternative to dilution in water as regards the use of essential oils for body care, in this context I recommend the use of the classic vegetable oils used in aromatherapy (carrier oil or carrier oil).
