The Diffuser vs Candle Debate
Updated: Jun 21
Aromatherapy is a powerful tool that has become all too common in our day to day lives.
Whether it's used for a relaxing meditation, to help our children focus, or just simply to fill a room with soothing aromas. But does it really matter how you release the aroma so long as there is an effective result? When it comes to utilizing your scents effectively, the benefits of diffusing Essential Oils far outweigh that of candles.
Whether it is remove the risk of fire from pets, children, or negligence, to decrease inhaling hazardous chemicals from high temperature burn off, diffusing Essential Oils is becoming the healthier and safer alternative to reap health benefits from aromatherapy and well-being!
WHY DIFFUSING OIL IS BETTER THAN CANDLES
A diffuser is kind of like a tiny humidifier, but you can add an Essential Oil to the water to fill a room with a specific scent. They are cost effective, safe around kids and pets, no nasty chemicals and you can control your fragrance output. Since diffusers do not require a flame, you can place them virtually anywhere. There isn't any damaging smoke to inhale, and the power of essential oils work with the olfactory system (how we smell) and actually activates "feel-good" chemicals in our brain, naturally!
HEALTH RISKS OF CANDLES COMPARED TO DIFFUSING
There is a growing concern of hazardous toxins around us. With all of the pollution of the outside world effecting us, why would you want to bring that into your own home? Research has shown that the brands we commonly see use toluene and benzene (known carcinogens)! When burning candles, hazardous toxins are being released into your home where you and loved ones live.
WHY YOU SHOULD USE A DIFFUSER OVER A CANDLE
Compared to obsolete candles, Diffusers are much more safer, more economical, more natural and more effective. If you aim to enjoy aromatherapy with convenience, then a diffuser is right for you. That said, the benefits provided by essential oils dispersed by diffusers are far more than those provided by candles. The Practical Oiler presents fantastic research in why this is true:
