What Exactly Are Ultrasonic Diffusers?

Q & A :
So.... Quite a few people are unsure and have been asking me what an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser is, or what the difference is between burning essential oils and diffusing them? So I thought I would write this explanation to try and explain it better - 

Ultrasonic diffusers act by generating approximately 1.7 million ultrasonic vibrations per second as a nebulizer system which ionizes essential oil molecules into the air using a heat-free diffusion method. Negative ions are known to help reduce illnesses and protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritations.

This cool mist becomes a vapour which spreads evenly through the room. Most act as an essential oil / aroma vaporizer, humidifier, air purifier and ionizer. Some also have the added feature of being a night or mood light. Most are generally quiet, aside from some having a soothing bubbling sound effect of the water which can create an even more relaxing atmosphere.

Ultrasonic diffusers work by emitting micro droplets of water vapour into the air. These tiny droplets are highly beneficial for your skin and general well being. 

Diffusing essential oils with anti bacterial properties can kill airborne virus, bacteria, fungus, and mould. Did you know diffusing a blend of cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, lemon, and rosemary oils can kill 99% of airborne bacteria in 12 minutes! This blend is also known as 'Thieves' and is also available for sale in our online store. Diffusing lemon essential oil alone is also great for preventing and helping to cure colds and flu. 

When burning or warming essential oils there isn't as many therapeutic benefits as there is with ultrasonic diffusing. The essential oils are generally just being warmed up which releases the scent of the oil around the room and most of the oil is evaporated so therefore it does not last as long. The scent may create a relaxing atmosphere, but with diffusing you are actually breathing in the micro vapour and gaining the maximum therapeutic benefits of the essential oils.

Hope that information helps to answer your questions! If you have any other questions, or anything you would like to add or point out my ears are open. That's just the best way I could describe it in my own words. 

I will include a link below if anyone wants to look at the ultrasonic diffusers we have for sale. Please feel free to share this post to help explain to anyone else who might be wondering about ultrasonic diffusers and why I love them so much!

  1. I love my Ultrasonic Diffuser
    It really helps me with the dog odors in the house. I love that I can change scents and it automatically shuts off when it's out of water. No more wondering if I left candles lit.
