An essential oil diffuser transforms an essential oil or any other natural plant extract into droplets and molecules, then disperses them into the air to purify it, release a scent and promote well-being. We'll explain why you should regularly treat yourself to a moment of pure relaxation.
There are several types of diffusers, categorised by how they work: nebulisation, evaporation, heat, and the type we prefer at Aromasound – ultrasound or ultrasonic.
This technology, based on inaudible ultrasounds, preserves the properties of the oils. It retains their olfactory qualities, and does not heat or modify their composition, which means you can enjoy all their beneficial properties. Because, as well as adding a nice scent to a room, essential oils are amazing – for your home and for you.
10 reasons to own an essential oil diffuser
1.Purify the air
We often worry about pollution and the air quality outside, but rarely about the air quality inside our homes. Other than paint, cleaning products and cooking smells, there is also pollution under our own roofs. This is why it's recommended to open doors and windows and ventilate for at least 10 minutes a day.
Some essential oils are antibacterial and/or antimicrobial and can help to purify and cleanse the air inside your home. For example, lemon, pine, lavender and wild mint are essential oils with these qualities. Our Trade Wind synergy combines lemon, Scots pine, wild mint, orange and ravintsara to purify your home and add a touch of freshness. Make sure you clean your diffuser regularly to ensure it is running optimally and to reap all its benefits.
2.Release scent into the air
As well as purifying the air, some essential oils simply leave a scent and create an ambiance in a room. Aromasound diffusers can fill a room of up to 30m2 with scent.
They diffuse natural and organic extracts from plants, fruits and peel. Aromasound synergies have been meticulously selected and are certified by Ecocert.
Essential oils are prized for their benefits and qualities. For example, some have relaxing, soothing and comforting properties. Which should you choose? Lavender, sweet orange, mandarin or our Zen synergy, which is specially designed for relaxation. It is a blend of lavandin grosso, sweet orange, juniper and black spruce.
4. Sleep better and wind down
Other essential oils known for their calming properties – like mandarin, camomile and lavender – are recommended before bedtime to help with getting to sleep. Our Nighttime synergy combines lavandin grosso, sweet orange, ylang-ylang and mandarin to promote sleep.
5.Strengthen the immune system and prevent illness
Some essential oil blends help to boost the immune system, such as those with antiseptic and/or antiviral properties, which help to fight winter infections. Ravintsara, which is found in the Trade Wind synergy, has both anti-infectious and antibacterial qualities.
6.Breathe more easily
Some essential oils, such as eucalyptus and Scots pine, help you breathe by opening up the airways and unblocking the nose.
To make these oils more effective, you can also diffuse them with a cool mist diffuser, like the Symphoney model, which doubles up as a humidifier. It diffuses a light mist, humidifies the air and helps to keep your airways moisturised and healthy.
7.Release tension and relieve pain
Juniper alleviates tension in the body, while lavandin grosso helps to relax muscles (fights cramps and stiffness). Other essential oils generally help to relax and relieve aches and pains.
8.Repel mosquitoes and insects
Citronella is known as a repellent for mosquitoes and other insects. But instead of spraying it on your body, you can diffuse the essential oil safely into the air. Our Outdoor synergy has been specially designed for outdoor use. Using lemon and Ceylon citronella as its base, it helps you spend an evening outside with complete peace of mind.
Although scented candles smell nice, they can be allergenic. Diffusing an essential oil is risk free (as long as you follow duration guidelines). If you want to reduce your use of candles, yet still enjoy a nice-smelling home, you can replace candles with an essential oil diffuser.
10.Enjoy multiple features
As nice as it is to smell beautiful scents, relax and purify the air, it's even better when you add in even more functions. Aromasound includes other features to maximise your well-being: music, light, mist... They awaken all the senses and give you a true multisensory experience.
