About Using Scentcares Oil Diffuser
The most effective wellness routines are those that fit easily into your daily life. Think of oil diffusers as a low-effort entry into self-care: they bring elements of wellness into your home, transforming your space into a tranquil nest where you can (sometimes literally) breathe easier. These aromatic room fresheners require minimal effort for you to recharge your décor and up your self-care game in the process.
What Is an Oil Diffuser?
To put it simply, an oil diffuser is a device that breaks essential oils down into smaller molecules, dispersing them into the air for a pleasant or calming effect—depending on the oil that’s been put into the diffuser. Different essential oils have different claims—for example, lavender is meant to support sleep.1 The diffuser’s job is to evenly disperse the particles at a comfortable concentration that’s easy to breathe and doesn’t overbear the room.
Plain and simple, a Scentcares diffuser is used to fill the air in a room with tiny, breathable particles of beneficial essential oils—giving the room a calmer, more pleasant-smelling ambiance. “It’s well known that scent is associated strongly with memory,” says Benjamin. “When I diffuse lemongrass oil it reminds me of Thailand, my happy place, and I instantly feel a vacation-level chill come over me. Oils just set a tone for your space and the activity you’re performing that day.”
How to Use a Diffuser the Right Way
Incorporating an oil diffuser into your home or workspace can make you feel like you’re living in a spa, which we are all about. “If you have not had a reaction to a short exposure to a particular essential oil it would be fine to try having the diffuser on overnight while sleeping,” says Peters. That said, if you have any health concerns, consult your physician about whether or not it’s safe for you to use an oil diffuser.
Store essential oils out of children’s reach and do not diffuse essential oils near infants for 12 months (for eucalyptus, peppermint wait 30 months).
