Above its mood-improving elements the proven virucide, bactericidal, fungicide effects of the essential oils is as well important. The intensity of the above-mentioned effects changes by oils therefore the most effective way to use them is in form of synergies. Especially at wintertime, when we are forced to stay at home, in the office, school, nurseries it gets a higher importance. We spend less time on fresh air and therefore have a higher chance to get sick at fall-winter time.
By vaporizing essential oils, we have two ways to fight against diseases: on one hand through our skin and nose the small particles of the oils get into our bodies where they can start fighting the existing intruders, on the other hand they are able to eliminate disease agents already in the air.
To vaporize essential oils we have a wide range of possibilities from the very basic home-made techniques till more complicated technologies.
We can put a small ceramic pot on the radiator, heater and drop a few drops of the chosen essential oil.
By setting light to an aroma lamp besides ensuring a cozy, romantic atmosphere, the heat of the candle indicates the vaporizing of the water, which spreads the essential oil into the air. We cannot leave the lamp on its own. Especially in case of families with smaller kids need to pay attention, furthermore if the oil burns it can spread harmful material into the air.
The different unpainted ceramic figurines can be used securely and easily. They vaporize the essential oils cold and slowly.
Modern shape and secure usage characterizes the aroma diffusers, which can be operated from electric network or from an accumulator. Without heating and with an ultrasound technology they can further atomize the essential oils (compared to their traditional partners) which fosters the therapeutic effect of the vaporizer.
Since the particulars of the essential oils are measurable in the blood flow even couple of seconds after inhaling only the 100% pure, controlled organic essential oils are advised with full responsiblity.
