HOW DOES AN ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER WORK?An ultrasonic diffuser is an electronic diffuser which disperses Essential Oils into the air. Diffusers work by breaking the Essential Oil particles down into micro-molecules & then diffusing them into the air as negative ions. Negatively charged ions will attach themselves to harmful positively charged particles in the air & help to purify your home. Typically, ultrasonic diffusers are filled with water & Essential Oils are then added to the water where they remain on the water's surface. It's important to note, the amount of Essential Oils you add to your diffuser will depend upon the size of your diffuser. Usually 4-5 drops should be fine. Ultrasonic diffusers work by using ultrasonic vibrations. Ultrasonic vibrations are sound waves which vibrate at an ultrasonic frequency, which is a frequency the human ear cannot typically detect. These ultrasonic sound waves agitate the water causing the separation of the water particles. When the water particles are separated, they become negatively charged particles which are lighter than the air. This is the visible "mist" that you see when you use a diffuser. Essential Oils are released into the air with these negative ions. Once released into the air, the Essential Oils work to purify the air thanks to their antibacterial properties & improve your health & state of mind as you inhale their healing aroma. Meanwhile, the negative ions bond with positively charged free radicals in the air & clean your space while adding a small amount of moisture along with the fresh scent of whichever Essential Oil you've chosen.. When using Essential Oils in your Ultrasonic Diffuser, the oil's particles are dispersed into the air along with the water leaving your space smelling fresh. This is also how you will benefit from the Essential Oil's therapeutic properties.
WHY USE AN ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER
Ultrasonics are a great way to use Essential Oils in your space without doing what we experts call denaturing the Essential Oils. Denaturing basically means that you are applying some outside element to the oil & changing its chemical composition. An example of what we mean is a candle diffuser. Candle diffusers apply heat to your Essential Oil which essentially cooks the oil. When an Essential Oil is cooked, the aroma changes & the therapeutic benefits of the oil is lost.
