How To Choose Between Diffusers For Your Home Aromatherapy

aromatherapy oil diffuser

Aromatherapy is a gentle therapeutic technique based on the relationship between our bodies and the subtle energies of aromatic compounds found in plants, flowers and herbs. Aromatherapy is not an alternative healing method per se as it is using the power of natural scents to promote healing. It is, however, a form of alternative therapy where the use of a fragrance or scent in the air stimulates the skin or hair and stimulates the brain and sympathetic nervous system.

One of the main concerns people have about using this type of diffuser is that it may not run time sensitive enough to meet their needs. The answer to this lies in the various models available and the technology behind them. A good aromatherapy oil diffuser will incorporate several different technologies including temperature controls, sprayers and custom timers. All of these elements can play a part in providing the most efficient misting possible with a high level of efficiency. A good quality unit will allow you to adjust the setting which will determine the appropriate run time and intensity of your aroma experience.

The Stadler Form Of Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser

A popular option available in the market is the Stadler form of aromatherapy oil diffuser. The Stadler form uses the double boiler technology for diffusing oils and other aromatic compounds. A small amount of water is heated first by the heat from the heating element, then the heated water is circulated through a condenser which removes any steam or moisture before being released into the ambient air. In a sense the Stadler is similar to a miniature steam distiller. A temperature controlled vacuum tube is used to extract the steam for use as an oil mist while keeping the moisture and aroma levels constant.

One of the most popular forms of aromatherapy oil diffusers today is the cool mist option. These cool mist Diffusers work by deploying a warm mist into the air. This mist is released at a lower temperature, which lessens the evaporation of any essential oils. This is great news for anyone who likes to save money on their aromatherapy supplies as they are able to utilize the same great effects of the diffuser without having to invest in much more expensive equipment.

The Purest Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser

A more affordable option for a diffuser is the purest aromatherapy oil diffuser. This is a great choice for anyone looking to save money without compromising on quality. Purespa offers many models that can be adjusted depending on the amount of essential oils that you want to release into the air. Some of the options that are available include single nozzle systems, double nozzle systems and even triple and quadruple nozzle systems.

The purest aromatherapy oil diffuser is manufactured with two major features in mind; compatibility and style. The two major features found on this unit are the compatibility with any standard wall outlets and the ability to use hydronic and electric lighting options. The diffuser plugs are designed to only accept standard wall outlets and no extra wiring is required. The diffuser plugs also feature an adjustable shutoff to ensure that the unit is safe when it is not in use.

Cool Mist

When choosing your diffuser, be sure to take into consideration the type of essential oil that you will be using with the diffuser. Most diffusers allow for a “cool mist” setting. This is a comfortable setting where the essential oil diffuses a very fine mist.

The cool mist setting is great if you want to relax or do some deep breathing exercises without worrying about getting an aching burn all over your skin. The essential oil mist settings can be adjusted higher if you desire to enjoy the scent from the essential oils, without as much a chance of burning your skin.


For those looking to enjoy the benefits of a diffuser but don’t need the aching burn, there is the option of the aromatherapy spargus. These are a bit more expensive than the aromatherapy spares, but also feature all the same functions. A sparoom diffuser is used exactly like an essential oil diffuser, only it has a built-in light. With the sparoom diffuser, you are able to get the exact scent you are searching for by selecting one of the many different spray bottles that are included with each unit. These spray bottles provide you with several different options of essential oils to choose from to create your own aromatherapy experience.
