How to Use Aromatherapy Diffusers as Room Fresheners

How to Use Aromatherapy Diffusers as Room Fresheners

The effects of an aromatherapy treatment are seen on the mind and body. The purpose of aromatherapy diffusers is to diffuse the scent of essential oils in the room. There is a wide range of aromatherapy diffuser devices that you can use for achieving the desired effect, and they range from the mundane and simple to the highly sophisticated.

For releasing a distinct fragrance of oil, you would require an aromatherapy diffuser. Easily available in the market today, there are a variety of different types of aromatherapy diffusers. Following are some of the common types:

Lamp Rings

The lamp ring is one of the most favorable choices for aromatherapy diffuser. Made out of terracotta, these lamp rings are directly positioned on the lamp bulb. When an essential oil is positioned in the lamp ring, heat released by the lighting of the bulb dispenses the smell into the air.


Another best-selling aromatherapy diffuser is the candle. Readymade candles that are already made with various essential oils are available at low cost prices in the market. Unscented candles are also used as aromatherapy diffusers. All you have to do is simply light the candle for about 10 minutes and then put some drops of oil onto the melted wax. These candles should be used with utmost care and use them only in an airy vacuum.

Reed Aromatherapy Diffuser

Among the rarely used aromatherapy diffuser, Reeds are more efficient and long lasting. To create a reed diffuser, you would need to pour the essential oil into a bottle, and then add a reed at the rim of the bottle. Reeds are almost weightless, and hence will take some time to moisten and soak up the oil. The slow absorption of oil will release the scent into the air. Aroma released through a reed diffuser can last for months.


Nebulizers are devices that pump air at constant pressure. These devices use this principle to break down essential oils and turn them into vapor. Usually, these devices give the best therapeutic effect as the oils are broken down, in comparison to other types of aromatherapy diffusers

Fan Diffuser

Electrical fan diffusers are one of the most favored diffusers in the market in recent times. These fan diffusers blow cold air through a pad, which is saturated in essential oils. Usually, the diffusers are placed into an outlet of an electrical wall However some models are battery powered, which makes them more portable.

Everyone favors homemade diffusers. There are numerous ways of putting to use what you already have in the house, to make a homemade diffuser.

Take a deep glass bowl and boil some water and pour it in the bowl only half way. Add about ten drops of the desired essential oil into the water. Place the bowl in the preferred room, heat of the water causes the oil to evaporate and spread the essence of the oil into the room.

Candles are a favorite option among many to be used as homemade aromatherapy diffusers. All you would have to do is place a candle in a jar. Light the candle and let it burn for about half hour or till the wax melts in the jar; thereafter add the desired essential oil. The heat would disperse the oil into the air just like it did in case of water. Remember that essential oils are flammable so you should make sure you use it with caution.
