An Oil Diffuser
An oil diffuser can kill two birds at one stone. You can circulate the aroma around your house while softly moisturizing the air if you feel a little dry. Save your money by replacing the air freshers with the oil diffuser. Among all the types of oil diffusers, the ultrasonic diffuser might be the most popular one. All you need to prepare is half-cup of distilled water combined with a drop of essential oil.
How the ultrasonic diffuser function is basically like the following. An electrical disc at the bottom of the diffuser starts vibrating at an amazing speed, turning the breaking-apart molecules of oil and water into vapor. Then the vapor is channeled out in the air, presenting mesmerizing plume.
Start your day by switching on this device is a nice alternative to lighting up a scented candle as you don’t have to monitor a built-in timer inside the oil diffuser. It is recommended to enjoy your aromatherapy in the morning and at bedtime. An hour before your rest is the time you put on the diffuser to scent your bedroom.
Remember to clean your diffuser regularly. The disgusting pile of gunk and grime retained can lead to less device life. After every use, pour the water out of the diffuser, afterward use a cotton crush to wipe both inside and outside with a dab of detergent and rinse well.
Besides being a necessary product to operate your oil diffuser, applying it into your bath gel or cream is also a common use. Do massage by yourself with drops of essential oil is also a money-worthy practice. Essential oil is a concentrated liquid made from plants like leaves and barks.
Different kinds of oils are targeted at different conditions. Lavender and tea tree is famous for healing skin issues such as acne, itchiness, and dryness. Lemon oil is helpful for pregnant women to combat morning sickness. Sandalwood oil can be used for treating urinary tract infections. Vitamins A and C contained in carrot seed oil are of benefit to hair and skin.
Although it seems essential oils are versatile and powerful, there is a friendly warning for you. Understand your skin and avoid sensitivities like rash or sores. Some ingredients in the oils are photosensitive and cannot be put under strong sunlight. Also, avoid interactions especially when you have liver disease or high blood pressure.
