Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: September 12, 2013 is Aroma Lamps and Diffusers.
There are many types of Aroma Lamps and Diffusers; Absorbing Clay, Battery Powered, Candle Powered, Electric, and/or a nebulizing diffuser. Diffusing Oils feature 2 to 3 Essential Oils blended together and added to an Aroma Lamp and/or Diffuser to fill a room with healing aromas.
Personally, I prefer Absorbing Clay Diffusers and Candle Powered Aroma Lamps.
1. For an Air Freshener, Respiratory, Immune Support, or Meditation Blend:
Use an Electric Ceramic Diffuser.
*NOTE* If using simply as an Air Freshener, Fragrance Oils may be used. If using for healing purposes, Essential Oils must be used.
2. For heavier, Gummy Oils from Resins, Woods, Roots, and some Flowers:
Use a Candle Diffuser to heat at a low temperature.
3. For Lighter Oils from Citrus Fruits, Needles, or Leaves:
Use a Nebulizing Diffuser to avoid overheating.
4. To Shift Your Mood or Emotions:
Create an Air Freshener, Deodorant, Cooling Body Spray, or a Light Personal Scent.
Make a Hydrosol in a 2-ounce spray bottle, which can be purchased at most pharmacies.
Mix 10 drops of blended oils and fill the Spray Bottle with Filtered Water.
Shake well and spray around a room or rooms. Spray around your Neck, Shoulders, and Chest for a Cooling Body Spray.
5. Absorbing Clay Diffusers can be hung or placed in bathrooms, closets, cars, and other small spaces.
Used for Fragrance or Healing Blends.
