In the past few years, unique devices called diffusers have become increasingly widespread. They work on the basis of essential oils – extracts of various plants that have restorative, relaxing or cleansing qualities. Due to the fact that the device is considered fairly new, many people have no idea what to look for when buying them. We decided to fill this gap and developed a ranking of the best diffusers in 2022. In it, we will not only tell you in as much detail as possible about the useful characteristics of the most popular devices among buyers, but also give some useful tips that will definitely help when choosing such a gadget.
How to choose the right aroma diffuser for your home?
Such devices available on the market today can operate on the basis of various principles. The most popular is spraying, when vibration is created during engine operation. Under its influence, the molecules of essential oils are separated from the carrier and spread throughout the room in the form of tiny particles. Others work on the basis of heating – the carrier fluid is heated, due to which the oil molecules separate much faster. There are diffusers that operate on the principle of a fan or on fogging technology.
Atomizers that do not have a heating function will not change the characteristics of essential oils, devices with heating work absolutely silently, but the effectiveness of the impact on the human body is much less. An important criterion is the maximum area for which such a device is designed. Many users pay attention to the form factor of the device. On sale you can also find portable ultrasonic designs that have compact dimensions, so you can take them with you even on long trips.
In general, spraying essential oils has a positive effect on human health. They are often used as prophylactic agents to prevent colds and other respiratory diseases. Also, the oil will be quite effective in the treatment of upper respiratory tract and nasal congestion. In this case, it is advisable to use peppermint, rosemary or eucalyptus oils. Peppermint or orange oil will help keep you warm even in severe frosts, they also have an invigorating effect.
When we chose models to include in our rating of the best diffusers, we took into account all the points discussed above. However, we also took into account user reviews and the value for money of products. We have tried to compile a review of not too expensive devices so that they are affordable for most of our readers.
