People are more health conscious these days. We’re now on a generation where people are going back to nature, the organics. Being health-conscious means they’re trying to keep themselves away from harmful chemicals, and going green — even at home. One thing that are now penetrating the market are ‘essential oils.’ Essential oils are compounds made out of plants. It is extracted through the process of distillation, or cold pressing. It captured the scent and flavor of the plant, called “essence.” Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that's ready for use. Each has their own aromatic compound, giving each a unique characteristic.
Essential oils are used for aromatherapy, which is an alternative medicine. It promotes physical and emotional well-being. It has been used for hundreds of years already, in multitude number of ways. One use of essential oils is for ‘Diffusion.’ They used to diffuse the essential oil using water and flame, but through this process, the medicinal attribute of the essence is being diminished by the heat. Thus, the urge to look for a method on how to preserve the integrity of the oil. That’s when the first Ultrasonic Humidifying Diffuser come in play. It was invented to diffuse the air through an unheated method to allow the user to protect and utilize the therapeutic qualities of essential oils.
Ultrasonic Humidifying Diffuser creates a mist, using electronic frequencies to create ultrasonic vibrations that break up the molecules for distribution. It is done by mixing water and essential oil, thus diluting the potency of the essential oil upon use. It also adds moisture to the room, aside from the aromatic scent that are beneficial to you and your whole family.

Benefits of air diffuser
Air diffuser, specifically the Ultrasonic Humidifying Diffuser, is prepared by many people over heat diffuser, because it preserves the therapeutic effect of the essential oils. It releases the oil as a fine vapor throughout the air, so the body can absorb the vapor gently into the body through inhaling. The aroma from the essential oil gives signal to the nervous system that can be transmitted to limbic system in the brain — the part of brain that holds emotion and memory. The brain will then respond by initiating different functions, such as release of hormones, relief from pain, or a positive boost in mood.

For instance, lavender oil positively affect women’s quality of sleep after giving birth, as well as patients with heart disease. There are certain essential oils that could give a powerful calming effect to the mind and body, encouraging a better and deeper sleep.

Diffusing Around Babies
As parents, we always want what’s best for our kids. We do not want to do something that could harm them, that sometime’s we’re being too paranoid and paralyzed to do amazing things for them due to our fear of doing something wrong. Parents are naturally safety freaks, of course. But did you know, that using essential oils for babies is a natural way to care for them? And that the positive benefits, definitely outweighs the negative? It’s simple and safe, but of course there are still guidelines and safety measures to follow.
Dilution is the answer. You can never go wrong with dilution. If the formulation is too strong, then add more water to it. 1 to 2 drops of oil, mixed to 150ml of water is safe for babies and small kids. It would also be best if you could find a diffuser that has an intermittent setting available.
Use high quality, pure essential oils. Always look for 100% pure essential oils only. There are a lot of essential oils available in the market that has a different mixture, like alcohol or what not. Please make sure to check and buy only pure essential oil for the safety of your baby and the whole family as well.
Set it up across the room from where the baby is lying down. That is to ensure that he won’t inhale too much of the vapor coming out from the diffuser. Anything that’s too much is bad, as they always say.
Keep the door or windows open when diffusing. It is still important to let fresh air in and it is necessary as well for a safe diffusing around babies.
Diffuse for a maximum of 15 minutes. There are diffusers that will allow you to set the time that you want it on or off, and it’s very helpful for parents as they won’t have to get up to just turn it on or off. You can also take advantage of diffusers that has an intermittent mist settings, so you could also control the concentration, and keep it low.
