5 Reasons Why You Should Try a Nebulizing Diffuser
You can help yourself with a number of different health problems by bringing a nebulizing diffuser into your house. It’s a device that differs a from the more common ultrasonic diffusers in the manner in which it spreads the essential oil around the air. At the same time nebulizers can be used for breathing treatments. The ultrasonic version uses electricity to break down the essential oil particles to their base molecules which then attach to the molecules in your home.
This is effective but it also requires you need water in the diffuser for the process to work and this dilutes the oil.
A nebulizing diffuser however, uses a pumping system to create a small vacuum in the diffuser which sucks the oil up and releases it in a fine spray. It’s undiluted, doesn’t rely on other elements and essentially releases the oil in its purest form. Here’s 5 reasons why you should give it a try.
1. You’ll Sleep Better
If you are having trouble sleeping, it may be caused by a number of different things. Oftentimes a change in diet or lifestyle could fix the problem, but if not, aromatherapy could be an option.
It’s possible that your mind is being crowded with stress and anxiety, which is preventing your body from releasing enough melatonin to put you out. If your muscles are tensed that will restrict your melatonin count too. There are plenty of essential oils out there that can calm your mind and body.
Mandarin, chamomile and lavender are great ones to reduce stress and then you could try something like clary sage to work on relaxing your muscles.
If you find that you are particular tense both physically and mentally while you’re trying to sleep then a concoction of a few of these oils would be a good idea.
Just be careful not to overfill the diffuser. Use this guide here from Complete Home Spa to gauge how much you should use in your diffuser.
2. You’re Less Likely to Get Sick
It’s a common misconception that colds and flus are only caused by being exposed to Winter weather, but it’s possible the environment in your own home could contribute to it.
There’s a lot of toxins that could potentially be floating around in the air. Certain gases such as ammonia are common in household cleaning products as are phthalates.
These things can cause damage to your lungs, kidneys and liver and can also inhibit your immune system from fighting off potential viruses.
You should work on getting a good mix of essential oils in your diffuser which can work together to overpower toxins in the air and also help boost your immune system.
Eucalyptus, lavender and rosemary are all good choices for fighting illnesses. I would suggest having the diffuser in your bedroom so you can absorb the benefits while you sleep.
And if you are actually suffering from a cold, you could fight the symptoms with a specific type of nebulizer that comes with a face mask.

3. You Can Fight Off Allergies
Much in the same vein as the previous point, allergies can be a big problem for a lot of us, especially during Winter and Spring. It’s usually on account of certain plants that are blooming and while different people are allergic to different plants, the symptoms tend to be the same.
You could be dealing with sinus pain, headaches, congestion, itchy eyes or various other problems that make it difficult for you to go about your daily life.
There’s many different oils to choose from which will each fight a different symptom or set of symptoms and if you are experiencing more than one, you could blend them together. Eucalyptus is one that has a lot of benefits. It’s great for reducing mucus as well as relieving muscle swelling and joint pain.
Clove oil is also one that you could work into a lot of your blends because it fights inflammation which is something that contributes to itching and congestion. The right oils will be different depending on your personal symptoms but those are a couple that work against a lot of the common problems of allergies.
4. Your House Will Smell Better
This is not to say that your house will necessarily smell bad if you don’t use a diffuser, but it can be hard to keep certain smells at bay.
These smells can be caused by pets, they can be caused by chemicals, they can linger from things you’ve cooked or from clothes that haven’t been cleaned in a while. Even if you keep on top of the cleaning in your home, the particles can still linger in the air and the smell won’t really go away without some interference on your end.
But at the same time, if you use store bought air fresheners, the chemicals in them could actually cause worse odours in the long-term. Essential oils shouldn’t have this problem, so a diffuser in place of the chemical fresheners is a good alternative. Have one in rooms where bad smells are more likely to be a problem such as your kitchen, bedroom or the front hall.
You could even put a diffuser in the bathroom if you wanted. As for which oils to choose, most of them do smell nice so it’s up to you what your preferred scent would be. Peppermint, lavender and lemongrass are popular as pleasant-smelling oils.
5. You’ll Be Happier
After running through all of those other points, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that nebulizing diffusers are great for your mood. How could keeping illnesses, anxiety and bad smells at bay be anything but positive things in your life?
But that’s not really what I mean when I say that it can help you be happy. If you’re someone who suffers from depression and anxiety, there’s essential oils to help with that. Bergamot is notorious for its effectiveness in fighting depression. It’s known to reduce your heart rate, your blood pressure, skin temperature and help your breathing. All of these things can help keep you calm, and the calmer you are the less powerful the symptoms of the depression.
Of course, if you are suffering from serious, clinical depression, essential oils are not going to be enough. You should seek medical attention in that case.
But for those of you who are afflicted by depressive or anxious thoughts, essential oils could be very helpful.
You might have a personal preference for a different kind of diffuser or a different way to deal with these common problems yourself, but a nebulizing diffuser is worth a shot. There’s a ton of essential oils that each have their own benefits and a these kinds of diffusers are a reliable way of releasing them into the air in your home.
