Now let’s begin with the most common kinds of diffuser you’re likely to see.
Better known as reed diffusers, these are usually glass containers with scented oils inside. The reeds, which look like slender sticks, soak up the fragrance. Then the scent slowly evaporates into the air.
The most common kind of kit you find at the store won’t use real essential oil. They contain synthetic perfumes instead. And the aroma is only noticeable in a small area.
Essential oil companies like Young Living and doTerra sell their own branded ultrasonic diffusers at a premium price.
But a plethora of manufacturers worldwide make inexpensive, high-quality diffusers. There’s no need to pay a high cost to get started with one.
Please don’t plan on repurposing your old humidifier. Dropping essential oil into the water tank is a sure way to gum up the works.
The idea is tempting because ultrasonic diffusers are similar to humidifiers. They have a water tank and emit a cool mist. But the diffusers are made to handle oils.
They use ultrasonic vibrations to break the oil down into tiny particles that are expelled with the water vapor.
