What are Diffusers? - Diffusers Explained

When we moved into our new home, one of the first things we did was to clean (check out our cleaning hack post here), and to set up our diffusers. I was keen to freshen up our new space with my favourite essential oil scents because they smell amazing and they bring elements of wellness into the home.

What exactly are diffusers? Simply put, diffusers are devices that typically use water to break down essential oils into smaller particles to be dispersed into the air emitting delicious odours and a calming environment.


I prefer diffusers to scented candles personally because they don't emit the same chemicals and ash into the air, and I don't have to worry about tipping them over and burning the house down. I also find with some of our diffusers, because of their humidifier properties, they are helpful at regulating the humidity levels in our home.


Even our little girl decided to save up her money (using the coolest kids savings app - Piggy Bot), to order the cutest Feather the Owl diffuser for her room. It was like Christmas when the Young Living box arrived at our door. She was so excited to open it up, and can't sleep without its soothing sounds and night light!


If you have any questions about diffusers, I wouldn't say that I am an expert, but feel free to contact me directly with any questions that you might have, or how to get your hands on one.


Below you will find some of my favourite diffusers and the benefits of each one.
