I'm a bit obsessed with essential oils, to say the least. Needless to say, I've searched far and wide for the best oil diffusers, because if I'm going to make my space smell like an aromatherapy oasis, I want to do it as efficiently as possible.
For those who are just getting into essential oils, there are a few important things to know about diffusers. A diffuser's purpose is to disperse essential oils into the air for aromatherapy use. Aromatherapy is a therapeutic practice in which essential oils are inhaled for a period of time. And according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, some researchers even believe thatwhen breathed in, the molecules in essential oils can stimulate parts of your brain and "influence physical, emotional, and mental health."
That being said, not every diffuser is created equal. Some means of diffusion, like heat, are thought to degrade the oils and make them less potent. So, when shopping for a diffuser, you'll want to look for cool mist, instead of warm mist, in order to get the most out of your oils. These 10 essential oil diffusers disperse essential oils without heat — and they have some pretty awesome features, too.
