How to Find the Best Essential Oil Diffuser

When I first began looking for an essential oil diffuser I was a little bit confused. There were so many to choose from and they varied quite a bit in price. I was also unsure about what diffuser specifications were important. I've come along way and I've learned a lot. There are really just a couple of basic things to understand and a few simple questions to ask yourself and you'll be on your way to finding the best essential oil diffuser to meet your specific needs.

Why do you need an essential oil diffuser?

First of all, in order to determine the best essential oil diffuser for you, it's important to recognize what your needs are. Here are a few questions to consider.

  • What size of area do you want to cover?
  • What are your reasons for diffusing essential oils?
  • How many diffusers do you need?
  • Does the appearance of the diffuser matter to you?

Let's discuss these questions in a little more detail.

Room size

Most of the diffusers under $50 have very limited ability to diffuse in a room that is larger than a small bedroom. I say this from personal experience. When I purchased my first diffuser, I wanted one that I could use in my living room as well as the bedroom. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and I just hoped that the inexpensive diffuser I purchased would be adequate. Unfortunately, it was not. Wishful thinking wasn't enough to make that little diffuser put out more than a small amount. It worked fine for my bedroom but I couldn't smell the oil when I diffused it in my living room.

Reasons for Diffusing Essential Oils

Do you want to diffuse essential oils in an office, gym, spa, or other such professional location? If so you will want a diffuser that has capacity to cover a large area. If you are considering a diffuser for your home, you may not need such a high industrial diffuser.

Diffuser Appearance

I know that for some people this may be more important than others. There are a variety of diffusers on the market and a variety of designs to choose from as well. I'm not here to promote one company over another but as far as diffuser design is concerned I really like Puzhen. If the design of your essential oil diffuser is important to you, I am sure that you will appreciate Puzhen's artistically designed diffuser lines.

How Many Diffusers do You Need?

I have a lovely diffuser I use in my living room that fits nicely with my decor and I have two more diffusers in my bedrooms. I am working on purchasing a diffuser for each of the bedrooms in my home because we all seem to get sick at once. It is nice to not play "diffuser shuffle", moving the diffusers around from room to room when we all need one.

Thinking about the answers to these questions will help you create a plan for your diffuser purchases and determine your priorities. I wish I had taken the time to do this before I purchased my first diffuser. I ended up not planning appropriately and rushed off to buying an inexpensive diffuser. It didn't really meet my needs and it didn't last for very long either. I learned my lesson - you get what you pay for. If you want quality, you need to be willing to pay for it. I also learned that it's important to study some diffuser reviews as well before making an investment.

Essential Oils Diffusers for Therapeutic Benefit

For our purposes today, we are focusing on diffusers that provide therapeutic benefits. With that in mind, what diffuser specifications should you look for? In order for an essential oil to maintain it's therapeutic benefits it can't be heated to a high degree. Nebulizing and Ultrasonic diffusers are the best options available that will preserve the therapeutic value of essential oils.

Nebulizing Diffusers

Without getting into too much of the science behind this, nebulizing diffusers work by dispersing the entire oil particle into the air in extremely small molecules that are very easy for the body to use. As a result it is considered the best type of essential oil diffusion for those seeking therapeutic benefits. Nebulizing diffusers saturate the air with essential oils very quickly and they tend to use the oil at a much quicker rate than ultrasonic diffusers.

If you plan on diffusing essential oils in a larger area in your home or in an office, gym, day care center or other large area you should purchase a nebulizing diffuser.

Ultrasonic Diffusers

Ultrasonic diffusers disperse the oils through the air by using electronic frequencies that cause a small disk under water, to vibrate at a very fast rate. These "ultrasonic" vibrations break the essential oil into tiny molecules and the oil along with the water is diffused into the air.

I know that as you consider these questions you will be well on your way to finding yourself the best essential oil diffuser to meet your needs. I would love to answer any questions that you might have so feel free to leave a comment or question in the box below.
