Traditional air fresheners have been used for a long time to freshen up a room or to enhance a specific environment. Most traditional air fresheners emit a particular aroma once it is opened from the package and the duration of the aroma is limited because the aroma will eventually deplete.
Fortunately, advances in technology have resulted in the creation of aromatherapy diffusers. Powered by electricity, diffusers emit ultrasound to the scented water contained in the diffuser which results in a scented mist that travels in a room. Different types of aromatherapy oils can be used in a diffuser to give a different scent. The advantage of a diffuser is that it does not emit heat or steam so it makes a room much more comfortable. Diffusers are used in hospitals because these devices are safe and reliable.
Aromatherapy Diffusers are practical because you can use the scent of your choice depending on your mood or your physical condition. For example, if you have a cold, you can use oil that will give you a therapeutic effect. Alternatively, if you’re falling asleep, you can use oil that will stimulate the senses and awaken you.
Currently, ultrasound aromatherapy diffusers are the most popular diffusers because there is no risk of burning. When the water level gets below a certain height, it will switch off automatically.
The essential oil that permeates in the air from the diffuser has a tranquilizing, refreshing, and motivating effect on your mood. Lavender and rose oil can have a pleasant and invigorating effect. Tree oil is ideal for curing colds and eucalyptus oil is used for nasal congestion. Some essential oils can assist in reducing depression and insomnia.
MRSA, SARS versus Essential Oils
MRSA, SARS, and other infectious pathogens that become resistant to antibiotics and other drugs continue to respond well to essential oils and other antibacterial and antiviral plant remedies.
MRSA or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus is a drug-resistant strain of bacteria currently on the rise in hospitals and communities. This strain of bacteria typically infects wounds or surgical incisions. Doctors are very anxious to find a way to stop MRSA but few doctors considered the solutions offered by natural remedies to which bacteria and viruses cannot develop resistance.
The Versatility of Essential Oils
It’s a fact that almost every essential oil contains natural chemicals that act as anti-microbial agents.
Essential oils are plant essences distilled from leaves, fruits, stems, and flowers. These essential oils are rich in chemicals like phenols, monoterpenes, and ketones – these are the same chemicals that have been isolated by the pharmaceutical industry to make drugs.
More people are beginning to realize the powerful nature of pure essential oils in combating bacteria and viruses. Natural medicine practitioners have always been proponents of essential oils to fight viruses and bacteria.
The popularity of essential oils will continue to increase due to the fact that bacteria and viruses cannot develop resistance to these natural remedies.
