The use of essential oils has recently skyrocketed – and for good reason. One of nature’s best kept secrets for centuries, essential oils are a simple and effective way to shift your mood and vitality almost instantaneously.
Embraced by cultures since possibly the ancient Egyptians, they’re time-tested and now research-confirmed. High-quality organic essential oils can indeed support your emotional and even physical health.
What are essential oils? The purest essential oils are extracted from the leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, bark, stems and roots of wild-grown plants carefully cultivated in various climates and regions around the globe. When produced and handled with care, they can retain important therapeutic qualities of the plant.
However, as potentially valuable as they may be, essential oils just sitting in a bottle won’t do you much good. You must get them into your body.
While many people like to massage them into their skin – and that’s an excellent way to use certain essential oils, the fastest and most efficient way to get essential oils into your lungs and throughout your body is through your sense of smell or your olfactory system.
A Virtual Expressway to Your Brain and Emotions
Of all your five senses, your sense of smell is the fastest way to reach your brain.
In your nose are smell receptors that respond to scents. These receptors send chemical messages along the nerve pathways to your brain’s limbic system, also known as your “emotional brain.”
Your limbic system controls many basic functions: your breathing, heart rate, memory, stress levels, and even your hormones. It’s intimately involved with your moods and emotions.
When your limbic system or your “emotional brain” is stimulated by the scent of an essential oil, it can have profound effects on your mind and body. Scents can invoke memories, stimulate feelings, and arouse your senses.
However, with essential oils, it’s important to note that your olfactory system isn’t just limited to your nose…
Certain essential oils can be absorbed through your nasal cavity and through your bronchial tract and lungs.
All these “fast track” delivery systems help explain how your body – and your brain – can respond so quickly to a calming or invigorating essential oil scent!
Four Ways to Get Essential Oils Into Your Body Via Your Olfactory System
There are 4 types of essential oil diffusers, some preferable to others…
- Nebulizing Diffuser - Air is pumped through a chamber filled with the essential oil, creating a vacuum to disperse the oil into the room as superfine droplets. Best to run only 15 minutes out of every hour to conserve oil and allow your olfactory system time to recover.
- Can saturate large rooms quickly
- Offers greatest concentration of essential oil components
- Doesn’t require water
- Most expensive type of diffuser
- Uses up essential oils faster
- Noisier than other diffusers
- Must set timer to control run time
- Ultrasonic Diffuser - Uses electronic frequencies to disperse oils from a small reservoir of water via a jet of air. A small disc under the water creates vibrations that break the essential oil up into micro fine particles, even finer than a nebulizing diffuser, and then uses the room’s natural air flow to disperse the mist. These particles are small enough to be inhaled into your lungs and into your body for maximum potential therapeutic benefits.
- Superfine particles easier for your lungs to absorb
- Economical – uses only a small amount of oils
- Can double as a humidifier, adding moisture to the room
- Much quieter than the nebulizing diffuser
- Requires water to use it
- May not be as concentrated as the nebulizing diffuser
- Evaporative Diffuser - Systems using inhalers, pendants, devices, and even fans that depend upon air diffusion to evaporate and disperse the essential oils. You receive the essential oil in two stages: the lighter molecules first, and then the heavier ones.
- Quiet, passive way to receive the aroma
- Ideal for use in car or while traveling
- Less therapeutic value because you don’t get all the essential oil molecules at the same time
- Heat Diffuser - Uses heat to evaporate the essential oil, which alters its chemistry and renders it ineffective.
- Damages the fragile components of the essential oil
- You don’t get all the essential oil molecules at once
- Few, if any, therapeutic benefits
While you might get a higher concentration of essential oil components in a larger space with a nebulizing diffuser, its drawbacks lead me to recommend the ultrasonic diffuser instead.
Ultrasonic diffusers are quieter, far more affordable, don’t consume as large of quantities of essential oils, and disperse superfine aromatherapeutic particles that are easier for your lungs to absorb.
They’re ideal for living rooms, dens, bedrooms, offices, and if the right type, they can make terrific nightlights for kids’ rooms.
The Most Practical Diffuser I’ve Found Yet…
I’ve found what I believe is the most practical ultrasonic diffuser – my Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser.

- Warm golden-tone light switches on or off independent of mist function – perfect for use before bedtime or as a nightlight
- No need for distilled water – can use tap or filtered water
- Compact footprint – approximately 5 inches width by 6 inches height
- Low-energy LED lighting and mist functions use only 12 watts of power

- Ideal for bedroom, den, or office diffusion (approximately 85 square feet)
Add Water and Certified Organic Essential Oils and…
Presto, It’s Aromatherapy Time!
Now that we’ve found the ideal diffuser, let’s take a look inside…
The attractive ceramic dome cover easily lifts off to add water and your essential oils. Inside you’ll find the water reservoir and protective cover to help guard against spills.
Lift off the protective cover and add about a half cup of water (filtered or tap water work fine) to the reservoir. Fill only as high as the maximum fill line.
Now it’s time to add a few drops of essential oils… I recommend using my Organic Essential Oils because they’re:
- Certified Organic and contain no bioengineered ingredients. The botanicals used in my oils are grown in soil that doesn’t contain pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or herbicide residues.
- Extracted using safe, gentle methods either cold press extraction or natural steam distillation – to preserve potency, aroma, and effectiveness. Our manufacturer never uses harsh or harmful chemicals.
- Quality tested for identity, purity, potency, quality, safety, color, and aroma. You know you’re getting the real thing in its purest form – just 100 percent essential oil. Nothing’s been added to dilute or adulterate the oil.
- Packaged in a state-of-the-art facility with their own in-house laboratories for the testing of raw materials, samples, and finished products for quality and safety. This facility even has a thermostatically-controlled warehouse and temperature sensitive storage and refrigeration!
With my Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser, 3 to 6 drops of my 100 percent pure, Certified Organic essential oils is usually sufficient. Unlike with nebulizing diffusers, you can use your oils sparingly – a real potential money saver.

Just a quick note about essential oils… While all of my Certified Organic Essential Oils are appropriate to use in my Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser, if you’re using another brand of oil, make sure it is intended for aromatherapy. Not all “essential oils” are 100 percent pure and safe for diffusing!
Simple to Operate… No Confusing Programs To Figure Out
You don’t need to be a programming genius to operate my Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser. It’s simple to use.
Press the “MIST” button to turn on the diffuser. Press the button again to set the timer:
- Once for 1 hour
- Twice for 2 hours
- Three times for 3 hours
A light will appear to indicate which program you’ve selected.
You’ll appreciate the easy-to-use timer function when you want to use a stronger scent, run special aromatherapy treatments, and when you want to drift off to sleep.
When the time is up, or if your diffuser runs out of water, it automatically turns off.
To turn on the softly glowing light, press the “LIGHT” button once. The light stays on until you turn it off, making it perfect for wherever you want a gentle, warm light.
And because it’s a soft golden color, it won’t upset your body’s melatonin production in the evening!
The color of light that your eyes are exposed to at night can potentially affect your circadian rhythm and melatonin production. The ideal wavelengths for night lights and clocks is within the red to yellow spectrum. Blue or green tones interfere the most with your melatonin production.
So when it comes to choosing a light that will remain on either before you fall asleep or during the night, make sure it’s in yellow-to-red range for healthy circadian rhythms and sleep quality!
