In learning to use an aromatherapy diffuser it is important to first understand the theory behind diffusion. This is the process of dispersing essential oils so that the aroma will fill an area with fragrance. There are many different techniques that can be utilized for this purpose. While simple methods do exist for diffusing essential oils in a room without using a special tool, there are also many different aromatherapy diffuser devices that can be used for more elaborate diffusion.

One of the easiest aromatherapy diffusers to utilize is simple facial tissue. By placing a few drops of essential oil of your choice on a tissue and then placing it in the room, you can quickly and easily create a wonderful fragrance in your environment. It should be noted that while this method is very easy to use and be used practically anywhere, this method will only emit a slight amount of fragrance. If you want something more noticeable, it will be necessary to utilize a more elaborate aromatherapy diffuser.

A steam aromatherapy diffuser can also be utilized place a couple of cups of boiled water and adding several drops of the essential oil of your choice into the water. This method can be used for a variety of purposes, such as freshening a room or treating a cold. Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils are commonly used for this purpose. There are some disadvantages to this method; however. For example, while the aroma is diffused quickly, it does not last particularly long.

Candles also prove to be wonderful aromatherapy diffusers. For this technique any candle will work. Simply light it and allow it to burn for a few minutes and then extinguish it. Place a single drop of essential oil on the melted wax and light the candle once again. The only problem with this method is that you must be extremely careful because many aromatherapy essential oils are flammable. You must make sure the oil is placed on the wax and not the wick of the candle.

There are also numerous aromatherapy diffuser products currently on the market that are quite safe and provide long lasting fragrance. One very simple aromatherapy diffuser product currently on the market is a lamp ring. These rings can be placed directly on a light bulb to hold essential oil. The heat from the light bulb will heat the oil and diffuse the scent into the room.

A cold-air nebulizer is also a good choice if you are looking for an aromatherapy diffuser that will provide a lot of therapeutic benefit in a larger space. These diffusers can output large concetrations of a pure essential oil mist. Because they do not heat the oils, they provide the most true-to-life aroma of the oil. There are also ‘plug-in’ warming diffusers that provide a lower concentration of oil by gently warming a pad saturated with essetial oil. They will provide the aromatic enjoyment of an oil, but not at the ‘therapeutic’ concentration of a cold-air nebulizing diffuser.
