Diffusers have become popular because they release their aroma without burning plant material and produce no smoke or soot. Depending on where it was made, you can use a diffuser for anything from wellness products to home décor. A diffuser is a device often used to release the vapor of natural essential oils. The diffusion process generates a gentle mist carried away by air currents and releases the aroma with little smoke, ash residue, or other volatiles.
Diffusion can be used to release an oil's aroma into any enclosed space (such as an office or home), in contrast to traditional methods of burning plant material such as incense, where heat and smoke are released into the surrounding environment. In aromatherapy practice, diffusers are usually considered safe because they do not release any heat or smoke and they do not burn plant material.
Diffusion has been shown to help reduce stress levels, improve concentration and enhance mood in healthy individuals. In patients with asthma, applying aroma therapy by diffusing essential oils has been shown to help prevent and treat acute episodes of bronchoconstriction caused by asthma triggers such as tobacco smoke, dust particles or cold air.
Scent diffusion is the release of a scent into the surrounding area for inhalation by those nearby. When an oil is used as a scented diffusion, it may be placed in an oil burner or oil diffuser and turned on or have its plug inserted.
Aromatherapy is a complementary form of healing that uses the power of essential oils derived from plants. Aromatherapy practices are becoming popular among people of all ages, including children and athletes. Aromatherapy has many benefits. It can be used in soothing baths, diffusing the oils into the air, or inhaling directly from a steam mixture of essential oils on cloth or by inhalation. Essential oils are also used in massages and other therapies to help alleviate physical discomfort and mental stress.
