What exactly is an essential oil diffuser?

ED Origin Technology Co.,Ltd | Updated: Jul 21, 2017

There are several different types of essential oil diffusers on the market. For this article, we focused on ultrasonic diffusers. Based on our research, ultrasonic diffusers are best for diffusing essential oils because they do not utilize heat in the production of vapor. Since heat can have a negative effect on essential oils, ultrasonic diffusers are the best way to get the full benefit of diffusing essential oils.

Ultrasonic diffusers work by vibrating the water in such a way that it vaporizes into the air. Since the essential oils are mixed into the water, they are carried along with the water. Ultrasonic diffusers generate the vapor without any heat, which best preserves the integrity of the essential oil.

Diffusers are better than any scented candle, because you can put more than 100 different essential oils into them. You can even combine two or more essential oils to create a unique blend.


The difference between a diffuser and a humidifier

While a diffuser does add a small amount of humidity into the air, it still functions notably different when compared to a humidifier.

A humidifier’s primary function is (unsurprisingly) to add humidity into the air. To do this, it utilizes a relatively large tank of water (typically measured in gallons) which is then heated and released into the air.

An essential oil diffuser has a much smaller tank of water, usually somewhere between 80ml to 350ml. This means that the humidifying effects of a diffuser are relatively minimal when compared to a humidifier. However, a diffuser is significantly better at getting essential oils into the air. In fact, usually it is not cost-effective to use a humidifier to diffuse oils at all.

For those who want aromatherapy benefits and humidity, it is best to use an essential oil diffuser and a humidifier.
