Aroma therapy diffusers, also known as essential oil diffusers, are used to fill a room with natural fragrance. There are many different household diffusion methods and techniques that you can use with materials you probably have lying around your house!
Steam diffusion quickly spreads the essential oil aromas into the room. According to aromaweb.com, an easy household diffuser method is to boil 2 cups of water, pour the water into a bowl, and add up to 10 drops of essential oils to the water. Use less if you are using strong oils such as cinnamon, eucalyptus, rosemary, pine, thyme, and cajuput. The only downfalls of steam diffusion are that the aroma does not last overly long and the heat may destroy some therapeutic benefits of the oils.
Add 3-4 drops of essential oil onto a tissue and simply place the tissue near you. The natural air movements that occur from people walking and moving around the room will cause the aroma to drift across the room. This household diffuser method is quick, transportable and easy way to create a beautiful aroma in any space.
If you have any soy candles, then you have an automatic household diffuser method at your fingertips! Just light it and let it burn for about 5 minutes, Put out the flame, then place 1 drop of essential oil into the melted wax (not on the wick) and relight the candle. Be sure to be careful, because essential oils are flammable. Similar to steam diffusion, the heat from the candle may kill some of the therapeutic effects of the oils.
