There are many ways to use essential oils. They can be diluted in a carrier oil and massaged into the skin, they can be added to beauty products for a healthy glow, or you can open the bottle and inhale it as you need it.
But there are plenty of ways to help you diffuse the oils into a room without having to think twice. Oil diffusers can be found just about anywhere, and they all have different ways of expressing the essential oils.
The main types of oil diffusers
There are several types of oil diffusers on the market. Though they all work in different ways, they are all capable of delivering the benefits of fragrance and essential oils to your life.
This type of oil diffuser is widely available and popular for those just starting out with essential oils. A reed style oil diffuser uses a bottle or a jar that is partially filled with essential oil and a few long reeds, usually rattan. The reeds soak up the oil and disperse the scent into the air. The scent is very subtle, so it’s good for those who want a mild scent in their home.
Ceramic or stone diffusers
A ceramic oil diffuser provides a continuous flow of essential oils without any fuss. Simply pour the oil inside the container and let it do its work. As the oil diffuses through the vessel, it releases its molecules and fragrance, filling the room with scent. Replace with more oil when needed.
These use water and ultrasonic waves to create a fine mist that diffuses essential oils around a room. The mist can be inhaled safely and effectively. Because the oils are diluted in water, ultrasonic oil diffusers are perfect for adding moisture to the air during dry periods and they work wonders for respiratory health. And since the concentration isn’t as high as it would be with other types of diffusers, the oils are less overpowering.
Nebulizers are extremely easy to use. They do not require heat or water and release a steady and consistent stream of small essential oil particles into the air. The Danau Satu nebulizing diffuser is a great choice for adding natural essential oils to your home in a consistent flow of scent to promote healing and wellness.
Whichever type diffuser you choose, you’ll reap the amazing benefits that pure essential oils have to offer.

No idea there were so many types of diffusers
This looks like a pretty nice device for keeping mu house smelling nice.
Need to try this
I’ve been wanting to buy a diffuser for a while, but hadn’t gotten around to looking at all the options. I definitely know which one I want to purchase now!
So much to learn! I would really like to use a nebuluzer diffuser in one room, & an ultrasonic one in another room. I would like a glass or ceramic one, but I’m having a hard time finding ultrasonic ones that don’t use plastic water wells!
I didn’t know there were different types of oil diffusers. This post is very informative!
I have switched from diffusers to nebulizers, healthier and easier to use!
I like the look of stone or ceramic vessels so I’m leaning toward getting one of those. This is a helpful list.
