With the increasing popularity of essential oils, you may have experimented with adding a signature scent to your space and transformed it into an inviting haven. Or maybe you wear one as jewelry all day long so that everywhere we go good vibes follow us! Used in these ways they can be relaxing or invigorating depending on what kind is used – just lovely no matter how often people use them.
Diffusers are perfect for any room in the house that needs a little fragrance, but there’s more than just how they work. Here is what you should consider before using one so your experience will be enjoyable and beneficial!
Diffusing for too long
Essential oils are great for helping you relax and de-stress, but it’s important to be careful not overdo the smell. The constant stream of scents can become too much if your nose is newly adapting or has never experienced any kind of scent before!
Too Much Oil
Often people want to add a lot of essential oil drops into their diffuser because they believe the scent and effect will be more impactful. Well, your sense of smell has an odor detection threshold which is defined as “the least amount” that can stimulate human nerves when smelled-in other words it’s very sensitive! To keep your body and especially the nervous system from being overwhelmed by odor molecules, it’s best to use an essential oil blend that has between 5-6 drops per square foot. If you prefer small bursts of diffusing rather than continuous spraying or drawing out all those wonderful scents in one go then this will allow for much better detection!
Thinking Oils Has No Downside
The benefits of essential oils are undeniable, but they can also be dangerous if used incorrectly. They might trigger an asthma attack or allergic reaction for people with underlying health conditions and may interfere with some medications in addition to burning the skin- which isn’t something you want happening while trying out this cool new product! So before using these oils, it is important that your doctor knows about any allergies/reactions etc., so he’ll know what kind would work best on you.
Using undiluted essential oils on the skin can be dangerous. The best practice is to dilute them in a carrier oil before applying, so you know their strength and make sure it’s safe for your particular body chemistry. It’s a good idea to dilute your essential oil before applying it topically. If you’re not sure how strong an individual batch might be, then consider mixing in some carrier oils for safety purposes! Undiluted vapor from these devices could cause problems when coming into contact with sensitive areas such as around nose level where respiratory systems reside.
Low Quality Oil
There are a lot of companies out there who put cheap, nasty additives into their oils to make them last longer. If you’re buying from an unknown source then it might be worth checking if they contain any fillers or extenders. A quality product will always come with pure essential oil so don’t worry about paying more – organic options exist too but keep in mind that these may cost extra.
If you want to use essential oils in your diffuser, make sure it’s one with fine mist. This way the area won’t be drenched and there are fewer risks for corrosion or degradation of plastics since they’re not being pushed around by large amounts!
Spilling and Accidents
A diffuser is an excellent piece of equipment for any room that needs fresh air. But be careful where you put it because accidents happen. When accidents happen, it’s important to take safety seriously and place diffusers out of harm’s way. A bedside table is too close for flailing limbs; a staircase landing can lead to tripping–and spills mean undiluted oil landing on your skin which could set you up with adverse reactions or injury.
Not Cleaning the Diffuser
Essential oils are great for health and wellness, but they can also be dangerous if not used correctly. If you don’t clean out your diffuser between each use it will start to accumulate mold or mildew which is never something that anyone wants in their home! It’s so easy to clean your diffuser! Simply wash the tank after each use and make sure it is completely dry. You can also let them run on one cycle with just water if you want, that will really get rid of any unwanted residue.
If you’re looking for a fun way to spend an evening, try out aromatherapy. Diffusers are perfect tools in helping people experience the benefits of scents and oils without having any direct contact with them! Diffusers are great for filling any space, whether it be small or large! Just make sure to follow proper precautions and maintenance for the full satisfaction.
