The essential oils can be used with diffusers and there are various types of them:

  • Fan diffusers
  • Evaporative diffuser - Evaporative diffusers are good for personal use in a small area and on the go; but may not be ideal for large or outdoor areas.
  • Nebulizing diffuser 
  • Ultrasonic diffuser uses electronic frequencies to create vibrations in water, which creates a fine mist (of water and essential oils) that is released into the air. However; because the majority of the mist is a water vapour, the scent has limited healing capacity. Studies have shown that mixing oil and water alters and damages the healing properties of essential oils.For a simple step on how to use the diffusers:*Make sure to read  instructions on how to use the diffuser as labelled on product
