Essential oils and their use in aromatherapy has been around for many years. From the ancient Egyptians to modern users, scent is powerful and is used in hospitals, care centers and beauty salons. We all love a pleasant smell and diffusing aromatherapy oils is a great way to also get the plus of health benefits. And using essential oils negates the use for chemical laden air fresheners and so-called air purifiers which I really prefer.
What is a Diffuser? What is Cold Diffusing?
A diffuser is made up of an air tube, a glass tube, a well to put the oil in, and an air pump. The essential oils are disbursed into the air in a vapor which is micro fine. It stays suspended while it goes about its work of making the air pleasantly scented, and getting rid of mold, fungus, pathogens and other gross floaties in the air that you can’t see. The oil travels from the well by air jet into the pump, where it is atomized. Then it goes through the glass tube, which makes it disperse evenly and quickly into the room.
When I cold diffuse an oil, I am not only adding great scent into the air, I am actually changing the molecular structure of odors in my home. They become harmless and inoffensive. As an added benefit, the scent of oils reduces stress and tension, relaxes the entire body and helps to clear the mind.
Finding a place to one was simple. I bought my current diffuser through Shop.com but I also ordered a couple to keep on hand at Elise Marcus Salon in St. Joseph, MN. You can either stop by Elise Marcus Salon and purchase one here or you can also order a diffuser through Shop.com as I am also a Shop.com consultant and have it delivered right to you. Other stores and beauty salons in St. Joseph, MN carried diffusers, but I preferred to order mine through Shop.com so that I can keep earning cashback!
Why Do It
During the winter months here in Minnesota, we tend to hibernate as much as possible and hardly ever venture outside. The windows tend to remain closed and this makes the air stale and unhealthy, and also allows for growth of bacteria. Cold diffusing will help make sure your air is safer to breathe.
