There are many different types of aromatherapy diffusers on the market today, with some doing a better job than others in freshening the air in a room. Almost all aromatherapy diffusers use essential oils in them to create the fresh scent in a room. The aromatherapy oil holds the scent better than other material which allows the scent to hang in a more lasting way in the air of the home or office and this is an important aspect of natural sense aromatherapy. Aromatherapy Candles were the traditional way to freshen the air, but they can be messy to use and are dangerous to burn without being monitored. In addition, the smell does not linger in the air for very long after the candle is burned requiring the candle to be in constant use in the home if the air is to be scented. Some individuals with asthma or other breathing disorders cannot handle the smoke from highly scented aromatherapy candles, so other ways had to be found to freshen the air in the home without putting pollutants into it as well.
Different Types Of Electric Aromatherapy Diffusers
The most popular type of aromatherapy diffuser is the electric diffuser. These electric aromatherapy diffusers can run on either the electricity from an outlet or from batteries. The battery powered diffusers are nice because they can be taken to places where there may not be a ready outlet for the individual to use. This is sometimes the case around a cubicle, where the only outlets are fully used by the equipment on the desk, leaving no room for an aromatherapy diffuser to be plugged in. Many of the electric aromatherapy diffusers that plug into the wall, however, are now usually made with additional outlets in them so that even if they cover the entire wall socket, there are still outlet spaces available in the sides of the electrical aromatherapy diffuser for lamps and other equipment to be plugged in. This type of diffuser uses a fan to blow the air across the oil soaked pad within it so that the scent is blown into the room rather than hovering around the outlet.
In addition to electric aromatherapy diffusers, there are also nebulizers on the market that help to freshen a room even more effectively. The nebulizers are usually a little more expensive than the electric aromatherapy diffusers since they actually push air into the oil which transforms it into a gas that is emitted into the room. These seem to use the oil more effectively than the electrical ones where the oil can sometimes be evaporated quickly rather than being fully used to freshen the air in the room.
In last few years effects of aromatherapy has been widely acknowledged across the world and this is pretty evident from the number of aromatherapy massage parlors that have popped up in the recent past.
