Types of Essential Oil Diffusers



There are four different types of essential oil diffusers, including nebulizing, ultrasonic, heat, and evaporative diffusers. Each diffuser has its own unique method for getting essential oils into the air to utilize their therapeutic benefits. From these choices, how do you decide which one would work best for you? To help you decide, we’ve broken down how each diffuser works and some pros and cons that come with their use.


Nebulizing Diffusers

A nebulizing diffuser breaks down the essential oil into tiny particles through the use of a high velocity, pressurized air stream and jet nozzle. When the essential oil is released, it goes into the air in a fine mist. This method does not alter the chemical composition—it diffuses the entire oil at once so you don’t get the more volatile components first and then the heavier later. The particle size is small enough to be easily inhaled.


  • Pros: Nebulizers use no heat or water, yet disperse the entire oil into the air for optimal therapeutic benefits.
  • Cons: Nebulizers are often the most expensive diffusers to use and sometimes to buy. Because these diffusers use only essential oil, they often also use more oil.



Ultrasonic Diffusers

This popular type of diffuser uses water and electronic frequencies to create a fine mist from the essential oil and water. Ultrasonic vibrations are created by a small disk under the surface of the water which causes the essential oil to break up into tiny micro particles.


  • Pros: Ultrasonic models only use a small amount of essential oil, and no heat is used to generate the mist in an ultrasonic diffuser. This method also can act as both a diffuser and a humidifier, a helpful characteristic if you live in a dry place.
  • Cons: Only a small fraction of the mist is essential oil, and it depends on the air current already in the room to disperse the oil. May not want to add more water to the air if you live in a humid place.


doTERRA has a few main different ultrasonic diffusers. Give the Lotus, Petal, Aroma Lite or Lumo diffusers a try.



Heat Diffusers

As their name suggests, heat diffusers use heat elements to help the essential oil gradually evaporate into the air. Sometimes they may use the oil mixed with water. Some heat diffusers use very high levels of heat to cause a stronger aroma, however, the best heat diffusers will use a very low heat to avoid drastically changing the chemical constituents of the oils being diffused. 


  • Pros: Diffusing using heat is an economical yet efficient and silent way to spread the aroma throughout the room.
  •  Cons: The heat used can change the properties of the oil at the molecular level. This means that the therapeutic benefit of an oil may lessen or change entirely.




Evaporative Diffusers

Evaporative diffusion is using air flow to spread the scent of the essential oils. A fan blows air through a filter, such as a tissue or a pad that has essential oils dropped onto it. The moving air causes the oil to evaporate quickly, and the air with the evaporated oil is blown into and around the room.

With this method, you will get the oil in segments; the lighter, more volatile components evaporate first, while the heavier components evaporate last.


  • Pros: Wind-blown diffusion can be a quiet way to quickly spread the oil’s aroma throughout the room.
  • Cons: It may not be as therapeutic of a method because all of the components of the whole oil are not diffused at the same time.

                        Put Down Your Cleaning Glove! There is a Safer Way to Clean!


                        Put Down Your Cleaning Gloves! There is a Safe Way to Clean!

                        My cleaning cabinet use to be filled with all-purpose cleaners, stove top cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners, window cleaners, abrasive cleaners, stainless steel cleaners, oven cleaners, disinfectant cleaners, bleaches, shower cleaners and probably many others! I always wore rubber gloves to prevent getting chemical burns or skin irritations. (I mean….that should have been my first clue, right…..?)

                        ….BUT….after actually reading WHAT was in these cleaners and researching WHAT these chemicals were and how they could harm the body….I STOPPED!  Immediately! Many common household cleaning products can be laced with the carcinogenic impurity 1,4-dioxane. Other products contain preservative that release low levels of cancer-causing formaldehyde.

                        Did you know that according to the National Research Council, no toxic information is available for more than 80% of the chemicals in everyday-use products? Yep, that’s right…..Only 1% of toxins are required to be listed on labels, because companies classify their formulas as "trade secrets."  So, how does that even give us consumers enough information about their ingredients to make inform decisions on which cleaners are safe and which ones might harm our families?


                        Here are some scary facts I found:

                        According to a 2010 study by the New York State Department of Health, children born to women who held cleaning jobs while pregnant have an elevated risk of birth defects. 

                        According to the U.S. Poison Control Centers, "A child is accidentally poisoned every 30 seconds at home..." The Average American Uses about 25 Gallons of toxic, hazardous chemical products per year in their home...A major portion of these can be found in household cleaning products. —"Prosperity WithoutPollution,"by Joel S. Hirschorn and Kirsten V. Oldenburg, 1991

                        The toxic chemicals in household cleaners are three times more likely to cause cancer than air pollution. – Environmental Protection Agency report in1985

                        Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those who work away from home. The 15-year study concluded it was as a direct result of the much higher exposure rate to toxic chemicals in common household products!  —Toronto Indoor Air Conference 1990

                        When combined, chemicals are even more dangerous. Deadly fumes result from mixing ammonia with bleach (both found in many household products) creating lethal “mustard gas”! —U.S. Government, E.P.A.

                        More than 32 million pounds of household cleaning products are poured down the drain each day nationwide. The toxic substances found in many of these are not adequately removed by sewage treatment plants. Guess what happens when these are returned to the rivers from which cities draw their drinking water? —Spring 2002 Edition of CCA Newsletter

                        Within 26 seconds after exposure to chemicals such as cleaning products, traces of these chemicals can be found in every organ in the body. —Chec'sHealtheHouse,the resource for Environmental Health Risks Affecting Your Children


                        So, now that you have decided to take the plunge and start making your own non-toxic cleaners….

                        There are a couple different avenues you can travel down to get these nasty toxins out of your home!

                        Consider hiring an eco-friendly green cleaning service. You will want to ask them what cleaning products they use and if they follow green cleaning standards.

                        Make your own DIY products. This is a perfect way to ensure you always know what ingredients are in your cleaners. You could stock up on the must-have basics like vinegar, baking soda, essential oils, castile soap, and salt. Check out this Spring Cleaning blog or Best Kitchen Green Cleaning Hacks for recipes to make your own DIY cleaners.

                        Take the easy way out. Try the dōTERRA On Guard® Cleaner Concentrate! This is an EASY, safe, and natural way to clean your home. It helps keep your home clean while leaving behind a fresh, invigorating aroma. Just like the doTERRA On Guard Protective blend, doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate provides protection against certain environmental factors.

                        New Baby Essentials



                        Attention Mamas With New Babies!!

                        Just about 8 more weeks and baby boy #2 arrives! While it seemed to go by slow this time around, it surprises me that I can say I am 31 weeks already. When I had my first son, I was not using essential oils as my first defense, but now that I have incorporated them into my life I have been doing a lot of research to which oils are good for newborns!

                        Stephanie Fritz, The Essential Midwife, has been a great resource for me!  Stephanie has been a midwife and used oils in her practice for over 25 years. She switched to doTERRA brand after realizing these were the BEST oils on the market.

                        Here is her recommendation for the essential go-to’s when you are about to welcome a new baby.

                        • Frankincense: A drop on the crown of baby’s head (with Fractionated coconut oil) to help with cellular support and bonding.
                        • OnGuard: A great oil to diffuse all the time, especially for winter babies to support the whole family’s immune system as well as any visitors you may have.
                        • Myrrh: Nicknamed the liquid band-aid. Apply to the belly button, because it is a direct source to all the systems in the body. Now that the cord has been cut it needs to be sealed and myrrh will help support the cells that were once his lifeline that connected mom and babe.
                        • Balance: Apply to baby's feet to align and ground your baby to life outside of the womb. It helps to balance babe to his new surroundings.
                        • Lavender: Apply to the bottom of baby's feet with fractionated coconut oil and rub on your clothes to support a calm environment.
                        • DigestZen: A must have oil for when digestive and tummy support is needed. When baby’s fussy and you are wondering what to do to help baby feel better. Just a drop in a tablespoon of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
                        With any oils and a brand new baby, you just want to be diluting, so make sure you have a great carrier oil. My favorite is fractionated coconut oil. YES, always dilute! 4 FCO to 1 drop oil

                        Essential Oil Genius – Essential Oil Customer Testimonial



                        Essential Oil Genius – Essential Oil Customer Testimonial

                        It is not often I am called a "genius" especially from my husband, but I will take it!  It took him a year to "get on board" with the whole oil experience and having the courage to try them......and believe in them.  (Because let's face it....men can be stubborn sometimes when it comes to things outside of their norm. And my hubby is one of the most stubborn people I know.)

                        ….I digress…

                        Yesterday, my hubby picked up the dreaded stomach bug. It hit him. It hit him hard! So hard he didn’t leave the bed and had to miss our 3 year old son’s first Learn to Skate lesson. And if you know him at all, you know he loves hockey to the point where he says, “I will die on the ice”.

                        While he was in bed I did our normal thing of getting out our custom essential oil rollerball blends and started rolling them on his feet, filled all he diffusers in the house with On Guard, the protective blend, and got him water and a bucket!

                        But, I wanted to try something we never tried before. The magic oil pill! Before I talk about this, I wanted to share with you what prompted this blog post in the first place; the Facebook post by my husband the next morning.


                        “Ok, so, yeah.... My beautiful wife is an essential oil genius and she turned 
                        THE most skeptic person into a believer about a year ago...

                        I spent yesterday with the stomach monster and started on essential oils immediately. 
                        Then, my wife says, 
                        "I found a recipe for a pill that is known to 
                        stop it in it's tracks. Want to try it?"

                        I sure do!

                        The trick was to take 1 pill every hour for 4 hours 
                        and then 1 pill every 4 hours after that. 
                        I took 2 and it killed it! I stopped the “coming out the front episodes” 
                        for the rest of the day and into the evening... 
                        Was able to keep a dinner down (as small as it was - jello) 
                        and all my breakfast - bowl of cereal and jello.

                        #theywork
                        #essentialoils”



                        The magic oil pill is called the FLOOM BOMB! WHAT?

                        We have been using the FLOOM BOMB in rollerball form for a couple years when we feel we need intense immune support due to feeling crummy in the winter time.  We would just apply a blend of Frankincense, lemon, On Guard, Oregano & Melaleuca to the spine and bottom of our feet in the morning, midday and evening if we feel an onset of a compromised immune system. Or if it hits hard, every hour on the hour!  (These same oils can be diffused)



                        But this time I wanted to try the pill form this time because of how hard it came on for him. Using the same oils, but a lower drop amount, I added them to a veggie cap and he took one every hour for 4 hours to hit that monster hard. Then 1 more 4 hours later and a final pill 4 hours after that!



                        BOOM! He was up the next day saying, “I feel like I was never down!” (Other than feeling weak from his lack of nutrition…..

                        So, with the help from my “witch oils”, the essential oil genius pulls through again for Mr. Goers!

                        Now….if I could only solve the “man flu”.  LOL



                        Yes – My hubby has this shirt. He wore it to the doTERRA convention last year and he was VERY popular! It was purchased from EssentialOil Style.

                        If you are preparing 3 days worth of lunches, separate the salad ingredients into 3 separate bowls and save the dressing for each serving.
