As we all search for ways to improve our health and happiness in the new year, it's important to not overlook improving the quality of the air we breathe at home. Maybe you have a resolution for more restorative rest in 2023 or for a more peaceful atmosphere in your home.
Essential oil diffusers provide the benefits of aromatherapy to your home, improving sleep, increasing relaxation, and improving your mental health.
Aromatherapy, also known as essential oil therapy, is a holistic healing treatment that uses plant extracts to promote the health and well-being of the mind, body, and spirit. While thought of as both an art and a science, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in recent years in the medical and scientific fields.
What are Essential Oils and How Do They Work?
Essential oils are described by Brittanica.com as substances isolated from odoriferous, or strong smelling, plants.
The first records of the usage of essential oils are from ancient India, Persia, and Egypt. Most likely, these oils were extracts created by placing flowers, roots, and leaves into fatty oil. Later, Arab cultures developed distillation, which is now the most common method for preparing essential oils.
Out of all the plants on our planet, only a few thousand provide essential oils beneficial in the practice of aromatherapy. Read on to learn more about common essential oils and the benefits you receive when diffusing them in your home.
Lavender has been one of the most commonly used essential oils for centuries, and modern science has worked to confirm several of its benefits. Many people find the floral and herbaceous scent relaxing and believe it to have a sedative effect to promote better sleep.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has a fresh, warm aroma. While it was considered a weed by most of the world, Australia’s aboriginal population realized tea tree’s benefits in wound healing. Today, it is popular for its skin healing properties, including benefits for clearing acne and athlete’s foot.
Peppermint oil has many aromatherapeutic benefits, such as treating coughs and colds, improving mental function, relieving headaches, and reducing stress. When applied topically, it has been thought to soothe muscle aches and joint pain.

How do Diffusers Work?
While essential oils have been used for thousands of years, diffusing oils in the home is a newer phenomenon. In 2020, the global essential oils market reached $8.74 Billion, and is expected to reach $18.25 Billion in 2028. The continued growth of the trend toward green consumerism and more natural product usage is expected to continue.
There are different types of essential oil diffusers and each has its own benefits.
Essential oil diffusers that work by heating the oil are a common option. They disperse oils well, however, they may not be the best option because the heat alters the chemistry of the oil. This can have an impact on the benefits of some oils.
A reed oil diffuser holds essential oils in absorbent materials, like a wick or porous wood, and works by evaporation of the oil into the air. These diffusers are not easily controlled–the warmer your home is, the quicker the oil will evaporate.
Ultrasonic Technology Diffusers
Ultrasonic diffusers use ultrasonic technology to refresh your air safely without heat or a fan. Ultrasonic essential oil diffusers are energy efficient, using only 8 watts of power to release calming notes of essential oils into the air of your home or office.
You can enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy while you sleep.
