Aromatherapy is an alternative medicine practice in which the scents of essential oils are inhaled through the nose and mouth to provide healing benefits. A nebuliser is a device used in aromatherapy to distribute liquid into the air as a fine mist. This activates the fragrances contained in the liquid and disperses the molecules throughout the room to be inhaled. In the practice of aromatherapy, this is called aerial diffusion.
Certain types of essential oils contain antimicrobial and bacteria-reducing properties to alleviate allergy symptoms and improve immune system response. The most common oils are Chamomile (provides calm and helps relieve headaches and muscle aches), Eucalyptus (heals sore throats, coughs and colds) and Lavender (helps treat insomnia, menstrual cramps and burns).
Glade PlugIns are one of the most popular nebuliser diffusers. A simple wall-plug diffuser, it contains a port in the back of the unit where scent containers are plugged in to distribute scented oil into the air. Inexpensive, easy to use and widely available, Glade Plug-ins are the most commonly used form of diffuser in the United States.
Young Living Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser
The Ultrasonic Diffuser from Young Living is a larger nebuliser that claims to be able to diffuse any kind of essential oil, whereas the Glade Plug-in can only accept specialised Glade refills. The Ultrasonic Diffuser uses less oil to provide a longer-lasting scent due to its process of funnelling the oil through an ultrasonic-powered cold water atomiser.
Chisoft Aromatherapy Diffuser
The Chisoft Aromatherapy Nebulizer is a user-friendly unit that can be programmed to cycle on and off and contains five separate aromatherapy settings that are already programmed into the unit. It is easy to clean and also uses an ultrasonic dispenser system to lower energy use and increase output.
