The following is not directly cancer-related. However, if you or your loved one wants to use essential oils to support them on their wellness journey then they should have a great essential oil diffuser. This is what this post is about.
Everyone who uses essential oils should have a good essential oil diffuser. If you don’t have one yet, then you are in luck. I am going to share with you the absolute best essential oil diffuser I have found. I have been using essential oils for well over 10 years now and have bought more diffusers than I care to admit.
The Aurora Essential Oil Nebulizing Diffuser is designed to maximize the biological effect while minimizing the consumption of essential oils. I have tested numerous diffusers from various manufacturers over the years. This is the only diffuser that has met my standards. I am confident in labeling it the best essential oil diffuser! What an amazing gift for your loved one going through cancer!
- The Aurora includes a powerful, quiet internal pump. A usage cycle of 2 mins on and 2 mins off for a duration of 2 hours at which time the diffuser automatically shuts off.
- Flexible touch sensor light control changes the brightness from 100% to 50% to 30% and then off.
- The multi-colored effect comes from a special glaze sprayed at a high temperature (600C) on the outside of the glass surface which causes a sublimation that creates vibrant colors.
- The unit features neat white LED mood lighting that can be switched off or on whenever you wish.
How diffusers work
This question seems to come back often in conversations with other essential oil lovers. What is the best essential oil diffuser? There are many options on the market today. It seems like all diffusers have their own specific benefits, but is there one that is the best? Let’s look at the pros and cons of each type together.
Diffusers that use heat
These range from simple ceramic pots with candles to more advanced units with electric heating elements. People seem to like these because they diffuse oils rapidly. However, the heat has a tendency to denature the oils and remove some of their therapeutic benefits. These are our least favorite and rank #3 in my preferred diffusion method list.
Diffusers that use water
These diffusers require that you add your essential oil to a small amount of water. A small electrical motor will then work to create a mist that diffuses the oil in the space. These diffusers are most commonly found in stores. They are popular as the mist adds a soothing effect in addition to the lovely aroma of the essential oils. These are particularly popular in massage and spa settings. However, adding essential oils to water tends to dilute the oils and once more lessen some of their therapeutic qualities. These are a step up from heat diffusers and rank #2 in my preferred diffusion method list.
Diffusers that use air
Air diffusers are also known as nebulizing diffusers. These use very fine glass tubing and compressed air to create a fine mist of pure essential oil. These diffusers require only pure essential oil and use no heat or water. In my opinion, these are the best types of diffusers. They do not denature the oil they are diffusing and allow you to reap 100% of the therapeutic benefits. The only con I see is that these tend to consume a little more oil than other diffusion methods. Air diffusers rank #1 in my preferred diffusion method list.
Do you know that each bottle of essential oil can require several pounds of whatever plant/flower/fruit it is distilled from? I consider essential oils to be precious tools. I want to make sure I use a diffuser that will extract the most benefit without adulterating the oils.
When diffusing oils, you want to make sure you are using the best quality and the best diffuser. You pay good money for your oils. Don’t heat them up or add water to them when you want to enjoy their full potential. Having worked with essential oils for over 10 years I can only recommend nebulizing diffusers.
