There are many different ways to use essential oils, from hot compresses to topical application. However, one of the most popular methods of using essential oils remains using an essential oil diffuser. There are a few different ways of using that diffuser as well, and we’ll discuss some of them today!
Ultrasonic and electric essential oil diffusers
With an ultrasonic essential oil diffuser, sonic waves are used to create a more fine mist that contains tiny droplets of whatever essential oil you chose and water. The mist appears as smoke curls, which is both effective and pretty to look at! Electric essential oil diffusers, on the other hand, warm the oil by using electricity which speeds up the evaporation and diffusion process. The good part about electric diffusers is that they come in a variety of sizes, from smaller more portable ones to larger ones for entire rooms. They even have car plug ins and diffusers that operate with USB power instead of needing an outlet! Electric essential oil diffusers are a great option for portability – they have one that works for almost every circumstance. Buy a few and use them in the house, in the car and at work to keep the positive benefits going throughout the day.

Candle lamp and terra cotta essential oil diffusers
Unlike the electric essential oil diffusers which require power, candle lamp diffusers operate by tea light candles. Just place the candle under the small bowl which you add your essential oil and water combination in. The heat from the candle causes the oil to start to boil and creates the diffusion process. It’s also beautiful and creates great mood lighting. Terra cotta essential oil diffusers can often be hard to find, but they are a super unique way of diffusing. The terra cotta material absorbs the essential oils and diffuse it slowly and subtly. It also requires no electricity or power whatsoever. To help the process along, place your terra cotta essential oil diffuser in a warm, sunny place. The sunlight will accelerate the diffusion.
Mist/spray and craft diffusers
Simple and to the point, mist/spray essential oil diffusers are cheap and easy to carry in your purse or pocket. Just shake well and spray into the air, whenever you need it. It’s an easy handheld way to carry the benefits of essential oils with you wherever you go. Just mix a few drops of essential oils with water and spray! There are also various “craft” diffusers, like reed based diffusers or potpourri style diffusers. Etsy is full of many of them. There also many options for DIY crafting of your own craft diffusers if you search them on the internet. There’s something satisfying about being able to make something with your own two hands.
Essential oils are beneficial in a variety of applications. Essential oil diffusers are one of the best and most diverse ways of being able to get all of the benefits of essentials oils in a compact, easy to use place!
