Christmas Gifts for Your Senses
It’s that time of year again to begin shopping for gifts that are thoughtful, useful and within budget. Finding that perfect gift can be so simple with an essential oil fragrance diffuser. There is a size for every space and a scent for any mood and preference. Best of all, shopping from your computer means not having to fight traffic to, from and in the mall!
Why an Essential Oil Diffuser Makes a Great Gift
Our sense of smell holds memories. The smell of cookies or bread baking reminds us of time spent in the kitchen with mom or grandma. The scent of eucalyptus may be a reminder of a camping trip or hike through the woods with your friends. The aroma of lemons is a reminder of sunny summer days at the beach or lake. Utilizing a cold air diffuser in your home can bring back those memories or create new ones. Moreover, with the holidays fast approaching, diffusing the home with the scent of Pumpkin Spice or Gingerbread is a great way to enhance the atmosphere in any home.
Choosing an effective diffuser
Most diffusers rely on water, heat, or a fan to disperse the essential oils. Ultrasonic essential oil diffusers create a fine mist by using electronic frequencies creating ultrasonic vibrations. These vibrations break up the oil molecules. The use of water dilutes the oils which results in lower potency. Essential oils can be corrosive, so there is frequent monitoring and cleaning of the system. Using an evaporative essential oil diffuser uses evaporation of the oil, but there is a difference in the way the oils disperse thereby causing inconsistencies in coverage area, potency, and duration. Reed diffusers work by absorbing the oils which are then dispersed into the air. The drawback with reed diffusers is they work best in a small room. For use in a larger space, a fan is necessary to disperse the fragrance.
By using a cold air nebulizing scent diffuser, you can be assured that the scent will cover a large area without the need for evaporation and will not increase the humidity. Nebulizing scent diffusers use pure oil, are durable, easy to use, and the chemical makeup of the oils remains the same.
AromaTech diffusers use cold air diffusion or nebulizing technology to disperse fragrances by creating an ultra-dry micro mist. These fine particles drift throughout the room scenting every corner and leave no residue. Our diffusers preserve 100% of the essential oil properties to deliver the best scent for your environment.
AromaTech fragrance diffusers have intensity controls that enable users to control the strength of the aroma. We also have models that can connect directly to your home’s HVAC system to deliver fragrance throughout your entire home. Most units also contain a timer which allows you to select when the unit operates.
We have several sizes of units to fit any home as well as the Drive-Car Air Freshener. Our Small Space Scent Diffuser is the perfect size for the bathroom. The AroMini BT is an excellent gift for a college student’s dorm room or a home gym. The AromaPro works fantastic for whole home use. It can be used as a stand-alone diffuser or connected to your home’s HVAC system. There is a system for everyone on your gift list.
