When to Use a Nebulizing Diffuser

Nebulization by definition is the reduction of a medicinal solution to a fine spray. These fine sprays are often administered in clinical settings or in take-home devices for those with respiratory or asthma conditions.

Nebulization by definition is the reduction of a medicinal solution to a fine spray. These fine sprays are often administered in clinical settings or in take-home devices for those with respiratory or asthma conditions. Another way of nebulization therapy is in diffusing essential oils. When using an essential oil, the nebulizing device (or diffuser) would then convert the essential oil into a fine mist.

Technically speaking, nebulization ionizes and vaporizes the fine oil molecules making the essential oil or blend more readily bioavailable. This vapor is able to easily penetrate into the lungs, throat and sinuses. Use with Caution- as you do not want to inhale too strongly over the mist, but gently 3-5 times for therapeutic, inhalation application.  The vaporized oil can cleanse the air or room  in a matter of minutes. Do use with discernment for therapeutic use and purposeful intention for your environment or wellbeing. We do not recommend running the nebulizing diffuser for more than 7 minutes at a time.  Cold-air nebulizers distribute highly concentrated, and highly volatile aromas over large areas rapidly, while retaining the essential oil’s molecular integrity. Your best bang for your buck is with a Nebulizing Diffuser. Do read our Product Description to see why we like these ones so much!

Considerations for Using a Nebulizing Diffuser:

  • For highest therapeutic dispensation
  • It does not require water or use heat which can alter or destroy an essential oil
  • It works simply by using natural, cold-air
  • The delicate olfactory components contained in each oil are preserved in their purest state 
  • A little goes a long way. A 1-7 minute diffusion is highly effective. Not more is needed at one time.
  • Less essential oil is required per use. (5-10 drops in the diffuser is sufficient) 
  • The level of aroma is potent and strong. A concentration of the molecular qualities are emitted.

Diffusing essential oils is an excellent alternative to candles or air fresheners. Depending on the essential oils being used, one can create the mood, health benefit or scent desired. For example Lavender could offer a calming effect, Citrus oils could provide an upliftment of the mood or senses and our Deep Forest blend for example, could offer a sensory experience of the outdoors. Naturally most essential oils have anti-bacterial properties, so cleansing the air or removing airborne pathogens is the bonus. Do consider the therapeutic properties when diffusing, and always use with caution around children. Nebulizing diffusers do put out a mighty aroma and medicinal benefit. Nebulizing therapy is used in some hospitals and clinics for respiratory issues. The main advantage of this is that medication can be directly administered into the respiratory tract and higher concentrations can be dispersed into the bronchial and pulmonary systems with less adverse effects [1].
