The Nebulizing Diffuser: A Superior Choice

Unlike the myriad of heated units and plastic humidifier diffusers that flood the market, the nebulizing diffuser operates without heating the oils or requiring water. It leverages a scientific principle known as Bernoulli’s theorem, a concept in fluid dynamics that ensures optimal results when diffusing pure essential oil.

What is the Bernoulli’s Principle?

Bernoulli’s theorem, also known as Bernoulli’s principle, is a fundamental concept in fluid dynamics, which is a branch of physics that studies the movement of fluids. It was named after Daniel Bernoulli, a Swiss mathematician and physicist, who published it in his book “Hydrodynamica” in 1738.

The theorem states that in a steady flow, the sum of all forms of mechanical energy in a fluid along a streamline is the same at all points on that streamline. This is also known as the principle of energy conservation for fluid flow.

The Science Behind The Nebulizing Diffuser

Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how a nebulizing diffuser works:

  • An air current is forced through a small tube, increasing its velocity while reducing the pressure at the exit point.
  • This pressure difference creates a suction effect, causing the essential oils in a separate glass tube to rise.
  • As the essential oil ascends, a stream of pressurized air collides with it, atomizing it into micro particles that fill the glass reservoir.
  • These tiny particles rise and are emitted from the glass cap as a water-less mist into the surrounding environment.
  • The remaining essential oil particles return to the diffuser’s bottom, creating a cycle that continues until the oil is completely used.

Comparing Nebulizing Diffusers with Other Diffusers

The nebulizing diffuser stands out from other diffusers for several reasons. It’s not only aesthetically pleasing and effective but also clean, safe, and quiet. Here’s how it compares to other diffusers:

Ultrasonic diffusers:

Ultrasonic diffusers use water as a medium to disperse essential oils into the environment. Over time, the oils can potentially cause damage to the plastic components of the diffuser, leading to a shorter lifespan for the device. Additionally, the use of water introduces extra humidity into your home, which may not be desirable in already humid climates. Furthermore, because the essential oils are diluted with water in ultrasonic diffusers, the resulting scent is often weaker and less concentrated than the original oil.

Oil lamps:

Oil lamps function by burning flammable chemicals, much like kerosene lamps. This process of combustion can significantly alter the molecular makeup of the essential oils, potentially diminishing their therapeutic benefits. Moreover, the inherent nature of burning flammable substances introduces an element of risk, making oil lamps a more hazardous option for diffusing essential oils, especially in homes with children or pets.

Candle diffusers:

Candle diffusers operate by using heat, typically from a tea light or other small candle, to warm and evaporate the essential oils. However, the heat can cause molecular changes in the oils, which may degrade their quality and alter their therapeutic properties. While candle diffusers can provide a cozy ambiance, the potential alteration and degradation of the essential oils make them a less optimal choice for those seeking the full benefits of aromatherapy.

Aroma heaters:

Aroma heaters work by using heating elements to gradually evaporate a mixture of oil and/or water. While this method can disperse the scent of the essential oil, it is generally less effective than other methods. The aroma produced is often weaker and the duration of diffusion is typically shorter, requiring frequent refills. Additionally, similar to candle diffusers, the heat involved in the process can potentially alter the chemical composition of the oils, reducing their therapeutic efficacy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A nebulizing diffuser is not silent. When used on the low setting from six feet away you should only be able to hear a faint whisper.

Ideally you should add 20 – 25 drops of pure essential oil to your nebulizing diffuser and that should last about 2 hours which is the recommended therapeutic dose by most aromatherapists. A minimum of at least 10 drops should be added for the diffuser to function properly.

It is not recommended to use water in a nebulizing diffuser. If you feel a need to dilute your oils you may consider using organic grain alcohol.
