We have all by now come across different diffusers and air purifiers while browsing online and shopping. But are they being marketed correctly for only the purpose of filtering air.
First of all, let’s look at what an essential oil diffuser is and how do they work:
An essential oil diffuser is a way to disperse the fragrance of essential oils into the air so that you can inhale the calming scent or the clean refreshing of Essential Oil your home (environment). It's the perfect way to experiment with new oils for those who may be sensitive to topical applications, while still providing all the many benefits of diffusing.
Essential oil diffusers work by creating a steam vapour that is scented with the essential oil or blend of your choosing. Some diffusers have you add a few drops of the essential oil to the water itself. Others have absorbent scent pads where you apply the essential oils. With both of these types of diffusers, the scent of the essential oil ends up in the steam, which isn't hot and doesn't pose a risk
An essential oil diffuser takes a few drops of essential oil and disperses it into a fragrant steam that is then released through the top or side of the diffuser. It allows you to get the inhalation and aromatic benefits of essential oils without having to apply them topically. Essential oil diffusion in this manner may be effective in promoting overall feelings of well-being for a more satisfying lifestyle.
Cool, don’t you think.
Diffusers come in many different styles, with variations in construction materials, shape, size, level of output and price. When you're choosing a diffuser for your space, it's important to take into consideration factors such as:
· Where you plan to use the diffuser
· Whether you will use it in one dedicated space or want to be able to move it around
· The size of your space
· How it needs to be cleaned
· Your budget
So, let’s look at the what the difference between a Young Living diffuser and an air purifier is.
Air purifier sold with a “air freshener” fragrance laced with many chemicals and toxins. You put this in the water, and it just pumps air through the water and back out, to take dust out the air and sort of adds it’s “fragrance” as the air pumps back out again. They say these fragrances are anti-bacteria but if you read the ingredients label, you will be shocked.
Our Essential oil diffusers atomize the Essential Oils with the water that is then diffused into the air, this is done via ultrasonic vibration technology. Most essential oils contain anti-bacteria properties that kill mold and bad cells in the air, thus cleansing our home and air of the bad thing.
Our oils are 100% all natural no chemicals at all so there is no worries there PLUS they contain extra health and wellness benefits and purposes such as killing black mold, opening blocked noses and chests, energizing, uplifting, soothing, aiding sleep , relaxing and so much more!! AND function as a humidifier as well! What a bonus!
This is where you get the value for your money and a healthy happy home!
It is also advisable to never use Young Living Essentials Oils in a purifier as it doesn’t have the ability to actually break up the oils so they generally just stick to the side and actually break down the plastic of the water bowl as it is most likely not medical grade plastic, releasing toxins into the air from the leaching process
Our diffusers have three run modes are perfect for a customizable experience: High mode runs approximately 5 hours continuously. Low mode runs approximately 8 hours continuously. Intermittent mode (1 minute on/1 minute off) runs approximately 10 hours.
How long you should diffuse an oil depends in part on which oils you are using; how big your space is and the output of your diffuser. Some very basic oils like Lemon and Peppermint may be able to be diffused for longer amounts of time at low levels of output, but the general recommendations are to limit diffusing sessions to 30-60 minutes, depending on the oil. More intense oils such as Eucalyptus may need to be limited to 20-30 minutes per session. If you feel the scent is too intense or have any negative reactions or side effects, stop diffusing the oil and take a break.
While it's not recommended to diffuse essential oils overnight, you could leave a diffuser with plain water going overnight if you wish. Make sure it has a large enough reservoir to continue diffusing for that length of time. Some diffuser models also have sound or light functions that can be helpful at night.
Essential oils are natural products, but they can be very powerful. For most people, essential oils are a safe way to support an overall healthy lifestyle, but certain safety aspects should be taken into consideration. If you have allergies to any type of oil or flower, it's important to avoid that essential oil, blends that may contain that oil and plants in the same family. For example, if you are allergic to daisies, chamomile may also be a trigger substance for you. If you have any kind of medical issue or are on prescription medications, you should check with a health care professional who is familiar with essential oils before adding them to your routine. Those who are pregnant, or breastfeeding should also exercise caution when using certain essential oils. If you are using a new oil, introduce it slowly by diffusing at low quantity for a short amount of time in an open, well-ventilated space.
The benefits of diffusion can extend to children and pets, but it's important to keep in mind their more sensitive systems. When diffusing essential oils around children and pets, limit diffusing times to 20 to 30 minutes per session. It's also a good idea to diffuse in an area that pets, or children can leave if the scent gets too intense.
And then of course there is this small incentive, when you buy a Young Living Diffuser you get an Essential Oil for free - isn't that amazing?
