The past couple of years have taught us many lessons, but a lighter one among them is how to turn our homes into oases where we can unwind and stay safe. We’ve shared some of our own favorite safe-space additions like weighted blankets and comforters, but few things create the ambiance that an aroma diffuser can. There are several different kinds, from electric or ultrasonic to reed and nebulizer (we’ll explain), and all function by dispersing fragrance or essential oil molecules into the air. Some diffusers use heat to warm the fragrance and encourage evaporation, similar to the way a candle does. However, oil diffusers are safer to leave unattended and can be just as beautiful as candles, if not more so,depending on your style for your home fragrance
The oil used with a diffuser is arguably the whole point of using the device, its eco friendly but there are actually quite a few things that differentiate some diffusers from others. A diffuser’s features and type can make or break the way an essential or aroma oil is released as you flip the bamboo reeds and the atmosphere that’s created. Before we get into what the types are, though, we’ve outlined the features worth noting when it comes to oil diffuser shopping. Each feature is followed by one or more prompting questions to help us determine our priorities.
