Aromatherapy Diffusers for Health and Well-Being.
I’ve just been lucky enough to receive an Organic Aromas essential oil nebulizing diffuser and have been testing it out in my home before using it in my therapy room. Buying an essential oil diffuser is a great investment you can make for your overall health. Great for the home or office, it can make a significant difference in how you feel throughout the day. A nebulizing diffuser atomizes essential oils and then diffuses, or circulates, the fragrance of the oil into the air.
With just a few drops, essential oils like lavender, bergamot, chamomile, rosemary, lemon, frankincense and sandalwood can be added into the diffuser making a wonderfully positive change in your environment, supporting you and your family’s health and happiness.
Beyond adding a nice scent to a room, a nebulizing diffuser offers all sorts of diverse benefits without the harsh chemicals of artificial air fresheners that can potentially harm health. A nebulizer is a specific type of diffuser that uses the process of nebulization to achieve evaporation. This process forces the breakdown of essential oils into very tiny particles and requires a high velocity, pressurized air stream as well as a specially designed jet nozzle. The rate of evaporation is highly accelerated and occurs almost instantly.
Many feel that a nebulizing diffuser is the best choice out of other diffusers as it doesn’t alter the chemical composition of the oils. It breaks down the oil’s molecules without separation of the mixture, producing a particle size small enough for the lungs and body to absorb quickly.
Benefits Of A Nebulizing Diffuser;
Purifying the air
We spend a lot of time indoors, especially during the winter months, and all of the weeks spent staying out of the cold, huddled up in a sealed home or office, isn’t much different than being trapped in the recycle air of an airplane. That’s a lot of exhaled air to be re-breathing, which makes it essential to purify the air in your environment.
Essential oils don’t put harmful chemicals in the air but they help to purify it. They’re also a lot safer than burning incense or candles, especially if you have small children or pets, allowing you to reap the aromatherapy benefits without the risk of a burn or wax spill.
Essential oils that are added to a diffuser increase their purifying effects as they help kill bacteria and fungus that are present, particularly when using oils like oregano, cinnamon, thyme and clove bud, which are considered to be the strongest and most effective antibiotic oils.
Reducing dust and allergens
Decreasing the amount of dust in your home is the single most important thing you can do to control allergens also. Because dust is sticky, it tends to attract and hold things like pet hair and dander, dust mites, mold and mildew. For people who suffer from asthma or allergies, all of those little bits of dust and allergens, can be a big problem. One of the best ways to control indoor allergens is by getting rid of dust. That’s because dust mites which are the most common trigger of asthma and allergy symptoms inside the home, thrive in dust.
A diffuser helps to reduce dust in the air, thanks to its ionizing effects. The air quality is improved as more negative ions are released into the air. The negative ions attach themselves to positive ions, causing dust to fall to the ground so that it no longer pollutes the air. You may notice that you breathe better, and the air tastes cleaner in places like the mountains or the seashore, and that’s because there are a lot of negative ions that are naturally present.
A better night’s sleep
Lack of sleep is a huge problem for many people. The problem has reached epidemic proportions in many developed countries where people are busy and stressed and are not getting quality sleep for rest and rejuvenation.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, sleep is just as important as food and water when it comes to health and survival. Their sleep chart shows that adults between the ages of 26-64 need seven to nine hours of sleep each night, while those over 65 need seven to eight hours.
If you aren’t getting the recommended amount of sleep each night, it is likely that your well-being is suffering in one way or another. You may get sick more often due to a weakened immune system, experience cognitive difficulties such as becoming forgetful and have trouble focusing, and you might gain weight too, as a lack of sleep contributes to a slower metabolism, and therefore, increased weight gain.
The good news is that if you’re one of the millions who don’t sleep well, using a nebulizing diffuser can make a dramatic difference in your quality of sleep as well as your waking life – and it comes without all the side effects of a prescription sleep medication. Diffusing essential oils is not only a great way to unwind at the end of the day but to enjoy a peaceful night’s rest that will allow you to have more energy the next day. Some of the best essential oils for sleep include lavender, Roman chamomile, cedarwood, bergamot, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang.
Boost your mood
A diffuser can also be used to uplift your mood. As well as using them on the body as with aromatherapy. Why not book a treatment with me at www.colourenergyworks.co.uk. It may be hard to believe that inhaling a pleasant aroma could actually alter your body’s chemistry and imbalances that can lead to mood disorders, but research has proven this to be true.
For example bergamot is noted for being particularly effective at addressing depression. A 2008 study conducted with 58 hospice patients found that those who received hand massages daily for a week using an essential oil blend of bergamot, frankincense, and lavender, reported less depression and less pain.
Other research in 2011 provided even clearer evidence of the powers of bergamot. The study authors chose elementary school teachers, to inhale bergamot in an attempt to determine whether or not it could reduce physiological symptoms of stress. They discovered that just a ten-minute-long weekly inhalation of the oil resulted in a significant reduction of blood pressure and heart rate, and participants who suffered from anxiety benefited even more. Imagine these diffusers being used in schools to help diminish anxiety and stress in children also.
But diffusing essential oils isn’t just a great thing to do if you’re feeling sad or depressed. It can be used to inspire high spirits over the holidays, to set a more positive mood for a social gathering or a business meeting, to create a romantic atmosphere, or just to help you get going in the morning.
Keeping illness at bay
Using a nebulizing diffuser in the office, or at home, is an excellent way to keep the flu, colds, and other illnesses away. That’s because many essential oils offer potent antimicrobials, that when released into the air come in direct contact with airborne pathogens, getting to them before they get to you. Plus many essential oils have compounds known to help boost the immune system, such as lemon, thieves (a blend of cloves, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary oils), peppermint and lavender
If you’re ready to enjoy all of these benefits and more, these nebulizing diffusers offer a particularly good value.

Safety with essential oils:
You should take precautions to keep essential oils out of reach of children and pets.
If you are simply inhaling an essential oil, for example smelling geranium oil to help with hot flashes, or spraying lavender oil on your pillow to aid sleep, you’re pretty safe. Inhalation of essential oils can only present a risk in very high concentrations (pregnant women, the elderly or very small children are an exception, which we will touch on shortly). In a room with poor ventilation, the concentration of essential oils should be controlled and monitored to avoid over-exposure.
If you’ve ever been for a massage and been asked if you are pregnant, it might seem a bit of a strange question!
The main issue is the risk of essential oils being absorbed into the placenta. That does not necessarily mean that any harm will be caused, but it is safer to use oils that have no known contraindications. See a qualified therapist. (https://www.colourenergyworks.co.uk)
If you do come into skin contact with essential oils during pregnancy it is extremely unlikely to cause any harm. Experts such as Ron Guba, Kurt Schnaubelt, and Chrissie Wildwood have all pointed out that there have been ‘no recorded cases of miscarriage or birth defect resulting from aromatherapy massage using therapeutic applications of any essential oil’
Some mums-to-be actually find aromatherapy very useful to ease pregnancy issues like nausea or swollen ankles. If this is the case for you, you can follow some general rules to keep you and your baby safe. Only use a very small amount of essential oil (one drop is actually plenty), and do not use the same oil repeatedly for a long time, e.g. every day for weeks. If you are adding essential oils to a bath, dilute in a carrier such as milk or sweet almond oil.
If you are using a Nebulizing Diffuser, do not mix essential oils with a carrier or massage oil. This can clog the diffuser and stop it from working. Oils to avoid are any thick, resinous oils such as sandalwood, benzoin, myrrh, patchouli and any massage oils. When pregnant, you may be more sensitive to smells. If this is the case, use less essential oil, or only use the diffuser for 10-15 minutes per hour to give yourself a break.
Regarding the eyes, essential oils should never be applied to the eyes, diluted or not. If you have any problems with your eyes or eyesight, however minor, please do see your optometrist as soon as possible. Eyesight is very precious!
If used properly, aromatherapy or essential oils are usually safe to use on the skin. If used incorrectly, they can cause skin irritation, sensitivity to the sun and even allergic reactions.
Some simple guidelines can keep you safe:
Avoid putting essential oils directly onto broken, damaged or burnt skin.
Always dilute essential oils appropriately before applying to the skin. The method depends on the essential oil, but they can be diluted with carrier oils.
If using an essential oil that can cause sun sensitivity, stay away from direct sunlight or tanning booths for at least 24 hours, to avoid discomfort and potential burns to the skin.
Babies and young children are more sensitive to essential oils. Oils used on children should be more diluted, and some such as birch, wintergreen and peppermint should be avoided altogether.
Using Essential Oils for Medical Issues
Essential oils are extremely concentrated. To put this into perspective, one drop of peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 26-28 cups of peppermint tea! So it is not surprising that they can be very effective, but also unsurprising that they should be handled cautiously!
Most essential oils should not be taken orally (i.e. eaten/drunk). Although some oils can be consumed, they should be done so sparingly. Caution should always be used, and you should treat them like you would mainstream medication. Essential oils should never be used in place of medication subscribed for you by your doctor.
If you are looking for natural pain relief, (https://www.colourenergyworks.co.uk/special-offer-for-new-physiokey-natural-pain-management), essential oils such as sandalwood, eucalyptus and peppermint can be really useful. You can use them in a diffuser to gently melt your pain away!
Antibacterial essential oils such as tea tree, lemon, eucalyptus and cinnamon used in your Nebulizing Diffuser can help to fight common bugs. Burglars Blend Essential Oilfrom Organic Aromas is especially useful to stimulate the bodies’ natural ability to defend against flu, sickness and headaches, and to fight respiratory and skin infections. It has also been shown to be useful as a method of warding off airborne germs.
You can even make a soothing compress for your head using peppermint, lavender, citrus and tea tree oils on a cool flannel.
Now that you know some simple guidelines for using essential oils safely, you can go ahead and use them without risk.
When you use essential oils, you’re really using the most natural form of alternative medicine available. And essential oil diffusers are the best way to make sure that the oils are getting into your system.
