Sometimes people ask me, “What is the best way to diffuse essential oils?”
Well, I don’t know if there is a “best” way. But there are different diffusers to suit different purposes, and not all diffusers are created equal.
Here are a few of my favorites.
If I'm diffusing essential oils in a small space I love using Aroma-Spheres!
These are beautiful, hand-molded pieces of clay pottery that absorb essential oils, and then release them into the air over time. You just display the Aroma-Spheres in a small bowl, and drop essential oils right onto them. I like to use them in my bathrooms and my office. Aroma-Spheres are made by Essential Elements.
Some of my favorite electric essential oil diffusers are made by a company called Pilgrim Collection, and their designs are simply beautiful. They fill a whole room with scent!
I like Pilgrim Collection's “Teo.” I have this one myself, and it’s a work of art! It's crafted with handmade ceramic and FSC certified beech wood (or walnut), which means the wood was harvested in an environmentally responsible way. It also gives you the option to turn on soothing lights, which creates a relaxing ambience. You can set it to run for one, two, or three hours, or you can set it on "intermittent" mode. It will turn itself off after twelve hours in intermittent mode, or after six hours if it's running in "fully on" mode.
Pilgrim Collection also has a diffuser called “Sofia.” Like the Teo, the Sofia also has soft LED lights that you can turn on or off. The Sofia is a nebulizing diffuser, and doesn't use any water in the glass reservoirs (it comes with two of them).
And those are my favorite diffusers!
They are practical, beautiful, and work exceptionally well. And that’s really what I want in an essential oil diffuser. If you keep those guidelines in mind when choosing your own, you will wind up with the best essential oil diffuser for you.
