You might be wondering WHY someone would want to diffuse essential oils and here are a few reasons.

Got teenagers? Diffusing an essential oil like doTERRA Purify will freshen up a room.

Wild Orange in the diffuser is instantly uplifting. Bring some romance to an evening in by diffusing oils like Ylang Ylang, Ginger, Rose, Nutmeg, Sandalwood, or Neroli.

Set the mood for having guests over for any holiday with fall smelling oils such as cinnamon, citrus, or Siberian Fir.

You can even use oils to relax and balance at home or in studio yoga with oil blends like Anchor, Arise and Align.

Diffusing essential oil is a wonderful way to freshen up your home and your mood without burning candles or spraying chemicals.

All of these oils can be purchased at MyDoterra.

Types of Essential Oil Diffusers

Nebulizing essential oil diffuser: A nebulizing diffuser breaks down the essential oil into tiny particles through the use of a high velocity, pressurized air stream and jet nozzle. When the oil is released from the diffuser, it goes into the air in a fine mist. The fine mist created by the nebulizing diffuser does not alter the chemical composition or the scent—it diffuses the entire oil at once instead of in stages. (Some diffusers release the more lighter chemical components first and then the heavier components later.) The particle size is also small enough to be easily inhaled and used for aromatherapy.

Ultrasonic essential oil diffuser: This popular type of diffuser uses water and electronic frequencies to create a fine mist from the essential oil and water. Ultrasonic vibrations are created by a small disk under the surface of the water which causes the essential oil to break up into tiny micro particles. (Source doterra.com)

Heat essential oil diffuser: As the name suggests, heat diffusers use heat elements to help the essential oil gradually evaporate into the air. Sometimes heat essential oil diffusers use the oil mixed with water. Some heat diffusers use very high levels of heat to cause a stronger aroma, however, the best heat diffusers will use a very low heat to avoid drastically changing the chemical constituents of the oils being diffused.

Evaporative essential oil diffuser: Evaporative diffusion uses air flow to spread the scent of the essential oils into the area. A fan blows air through a filter, such as a tissue or a pad that has essential oils dropped onto it. The moving air causes the oil to evaporate quickly, and the air with the evaporated oil is blown into and around the room.

When you use an evaporative essential oil diffuser, you will get the oil in segments; the lighter essential oil components evaporate first, while the heavier components evaporate last. (Source doterra.com)

Buy Essential Oil Diffusers on Amazon

Buy CPTG – Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade

Remember that some oils that might come with these Amazon diffusers are of lesser quality and most likely only for aromatherapy use.

doTerra oils are certified therapeutic grade oils and are pure oils containing no fillers, oils or perfumes. Always read the bottle label for the correct usage instructions. It will indicate if the oil is to be used for aromatic or topical use. Visit my oily accessories shop for more products to use with your essential oils.
