Diffusing essential oils has dramatically grown in popularity over the past few years. What's behind this popularity? Essential oils offer a wide variety of benefits and can be used in a multitude of ways. Diffusing essential oils is a simple and easy way to feel these benefits. In this blog we'll discuss the best way to diffuse essential oils, what kind of benefits diffusing can bring, and some exciting new announcements about Secret Garden essential oils!
How to Diffuse Essential Oils
Diffusing essential oils couldn't be easier! There's a huge variety of essential oil diffusers on the market. Prices can range from a simple $15 diffuser to a $200 diffuser that connects with your phone! There are countless sizes, styles and colors - I guarantee you'll find one that fits your style and space!
Once you've chosen your diffuser and you're familiar with the operating instructions, all you need is distilled water and essential oils! Not all essential oils are created equal. We cannot stress this enough! Do your research and be mindful about who and where your oils are coming from. Sourcing organic oils can be important depending on the use and the plant, so research is key! At the Secret Garden we have done the research for you! You can rest assure, that we are careful to only select essential oils that we would feel comfortable using in our homes and with our own families.
Following the instructions included with your diffuser, add drops of your favorite essential oils. The number of drops depends on the size of your diffuser so that is something to watch for when reading the instructions. Don't be afraid to mix oils and create your own blend!
How does it work?
Most essential oil diffusers that hold water are ultrasonic. The image below explains everything you need to know about how ultrasonic diffusers work. They work great and they're safe!
