Essential Oils in Vaporizers and Diffusers
Using essential oils in diffusers and vaporizers
A delightful and natural way to perfume a room is to diffuse
essential oils into the atmosphere. Essential oil burners offer a
convenient way to vaporize essential oils. They are usually constructed
of pottery or stone, and have a lower chamber for a tea-light candle and
a top bowl for water and essential oils.
Also available are electric aromatic diffusers and light-bulb rings,
which work in a similar way to burners. Even placing a small bowl of hot
water on a radiator creates a simple device for vaporizing oils.
Using a burner to vaporize essential oils
- Light the tea light, and pour some warm water into the top bowl to
half-fill it. Then sprinkle on 8-10 drops of essential oil. As the
water heats, the essential oils vaporize and fragrance the air.
- Lemongrass will keep insects at bay, while geranium and bergamot
will deodorize and neutralize cigarette smoke and pet smells. To
prevent infection spreading, use ti-tree, rosemary or eucalyptus, and
to create a relaxing atmosphere, try frankincense and sandalwood.
