Diffusing-More than just a scent

Essentail oils are plant extracts that are dervied by three process: steam distillation, resin tapping and cold pressing. The oil obtained from leaves, seeds, bark, skin of plants contains therapeutic properties that when diffused can have an amazing effect.

When I first received my Essential Oils I used a few drops in my diffuser. The diffuser uses ultrasonic technology to break down the oil with water into millions of microparticles and disperses them into the air. Diffusing essential oils is a perfect way to dispel odours and create a peaceful environment. Before I had a diffuser I had used some essential oils in an oil burner but I have since learnt that a cold air diffuser preserves their therapeutic properties. Using an oil will burner with a heat surce will destroy any therapeutic properties. There is more information in an article from Well Being Magazine that you might find useful
