Aromatherapy 101: Using Ceramic Ultrasonic Diffusers for Essential Oils

 

We put to the test Eden's Garden New Ceramic Ultrasonic Diffusers for Essential Oils

What Is an Essential Oil Diffuser?


In short, an essential oil diffuser is a machine that spreads your essential oils into the room, often breaking its molecules into smaller parts. If you love essential oils, chances are that you want to use them to perfume your house naturally, like myself! Well, diffusers are to me the best tools to effectively disperse their nontoxic and organic scents in your home, workplace, or even your car.

I have to confess that I love diffusers. They are a wonderful way to experience the aromatherapeutic qualities of plants without having to deal with sprays, dilutions or complicated systems. The latest technology in diffussers combines ultrasonic waves and a ceramic vessel to make the most of the precious essential oils. Today, I want to share with you my experience with Eden's Garden Ceramic Ultrasonic Diffuser, who were kind enough to send me a sample to test.

Aside from having a very cute and sleek design that meets my boho chic preferences, Eden's Garden newest diffusers are like the Ferrari of nebulization. To be clear, they use electric waves and water to create a very fine mist that carries the particles of the essential oils, helping the scent linger for a long time and reach every corner of the room. Ultrasonic diffusers, unlike other methods, do not heat essential oils, so what they diffuse is exactly what is in the bottle and their chemical composition isn't changed. If using essential oils for their therapeutic properties (as if you have a severe cold or want to treat other minor ailments with aromatherapy), this is of vital importance.

So, after filling the diffuser with water, you only need to add a few drops of essential oils (depending on the blend, I went up to 18 for best results.) This diffuser provides a wonderful amount of mist for several hours (up to 4 hours of continuous use.)

My Experience With Eden's Garden Ceramic Ultrasonic Diffuser



The Good

I personally loved Eden's Garden newest diffusers! I have had other nebulizing diffusers before but this is by far the chicest. I am obsessed with the new denim comeback and the design is just beautiful!

Also, it is very easy to operate; with just two controls, the Mist button allows you to opt for a continuous mist or an intermitent diffusion every 30 seconds. Likewise, there is another button to control whether you want the lights to be turned on or not. Easy peasy!

Another major perk is that this diffuser isn't made out of plastic. It is made with ceramic, which avoids my concern of having heated plastic get in contact with my precious essential oils. I don't want bisphenols lurking in my air, as I don't want BPA in my food! (yes, I'm the type of person that uses mason jars and glass food containers instead of ye olde Tupperwares.)

Finally, these diffusers are surprisingly easy to clean. Don't get me wrong; I love the nebulizing diffusers made with beautiful crystal, but sometimes I just don't have the time for an alcohol bath in between uses. A bit of soapy water with Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap has done the trick for me!

The Bad

If you live with a clumsy person, a ceramic diffuser can be a risky bet as it's easier to break than a plastic counterpart. It happened to me once that my other half accidentally crushed my very basic (but much loved) glass diffuser while cleaning, so if you have kids, pets or anyone susceptible of breaking it, you'd better put it in a high spot where it can't be overly manipulated.

Also, and although Eden's Garden has very reasonable pricing, a ceramic diffuser can be a tad expensive for someone getting their feet wet in the world of essential oils. For beginners, I love to recommend instead the diffusers that you plug in your computer to see if they like using essential oils to scent their home or business. A reed diffuser, that Eden's Garden also carries, is another inexpensive alternative for newbies.
