πŸ’§ Everything You Wanted to Know about Essential Oils Diffusion – but were Afraid to Ask πŸ’§πŸ’§

July 24, 2016

πŸ’§NATURA is an Essential Oils Ultrasonic Diffuser crafted from fallen exotic rain-forest trees in Thailand supported by SpaRoom contributions towards Thailand’s re-Forestation efforts. Attractively machined from Solid Natural Bamboo-Wood, houses the Ultrasonic Piezo-Electric diffusion technology, which generates effective therapeutic diffusion. Make your choice of the Essential Oils suited to Your Mood or for Your Guests.

πŸ’§Everything You Want to Know about Essential Oil Diffusion, but were Afraid to Ask. Natura is a Ultrasonic Diffuser, where 100ml [3 oz] of pure water is mixed with 5 to 20 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil, one of our favorites for example. Use more drops of Oils to Diffuse a more robust Aroma. When Natura is turned on, a thin Quartz-Crystal Wafer is energized with low voltage electricity, which causes the Quarts-Wafer to Vibrate to a very high 40,000 Hz frequency.

πŸ’§Ultra-rapid Vibrations of the Piezo-Electric Quartz Wafer, “vigorously but silently agitates” the water to such an extent it causes the Water and Oil mixture to hyper-diffuse into billions of microscopic cool water-oil-droplets. An internal micro-muffin-fan silently and gently pushes the diffusion up and out of the top of the Bamboo housing. The Diffusion emitted is not hot, as it’s not steam. Rather, the Diffusion is a cool microscopic diffusion of water-droplets plus the essential oil added.

πŸ’§Add Few Drops of Natural Essential Oils to 3.5 oz of Water in the Polyethylene reservoir. Add pure Water first, then add 5-20 drops of an Essential Oil, or combination of Oils. Aromatherapy runs for 4 hours of continuous operation; or select intermittent-operation for 8 hours of aroma diffusion. Natura Essential Oils Ultrasonic Diffuser Aromatherapy supports all natural essential oils such as Majestic and NOW Essential Oils, which we display in this writing.

πŸ’§ Recently we have Abandoned the use of Fragranced Candles. Accordingly, we purchased several Bamboo housed NATURA ultrasonic Diffusers, and fully appreciate the versatility of the fragrances available to support a variety of moods and venues. Notice the diffuser on our kitchen-dining room pass-through, pictured below.

πŸ’§AromaTherapy uses a Steam Distillate of plant flowers and organics, producing a liquid concentrate of aromatic plant oils, including Essential Oils, and other aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering one’s mood, cognitive, psychological or physical well-being. Diffusion may be offered as a complementary therapy or, more controversially, as a foundation of an alternative medicine. Complementary therapy can be offered alongside standard treatments, with alternative medicine offered instead of conventional, evidence-based treatments. Below are 12 selected popular Essential Oils, displaying their benefits when used.

πŸ’§AromaTherapists specialize in the practice of aromatherapy, utilizing a Singular Essential Oil and Blends of therapeutic Essential Oils that can be “delivered” through topical application, massage, diffusion inhalation, and water immersion, to stimulate a desired response. There is no medical evidence that aromatherapy either prevents or cures disease; however, it might help improve general well-being. Below is a short High Definition video-clip showing this Ultrasonic Diffuser in action inside and outside…

πŸ’§ Essential Oils are delivered in highly concentrated forms that are very popular in Aromatherapy and used by Diffusers. These concentrated Oils may irritate the skin when used in an undiluted form. Therefore, for topical treatments the Oils are normally diluted with a carrier oil or quality creams, for topical application, such as jojoba oil, olive oil, or coconut oil. Photo-Toxic reactions may occur when using Lemon Citrus Peel Oils. Some oils may be Toxic to Domestic Animals, where household Cats are particularly prone to certain Oils’ Toxicity.

In 1910, GattefossΓ© burned his hand badly and later claimed he treated it effectively with lavender oil.
