Vaporizers and Diffusers

What are the different between
Vaporizers and Diffusers


A vaporizer is a diffuser type that will allow you to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy by olfaction and inhalation.

This diffuser type is usually made of ceramic or metal. The top container, where the essential oil is placed, is heated with tealight candle.

The essential oil is vaporized and is diffused to the air so we may inhale it.

There are 3 different forms of vaporizers: aromatizer which is made of glass and runs on electricity, Ceramic Electric Burner and candle generated vaporizers of ceramic or metal.

  • Using Vaporizers - By burning candle or using electricity to heat vaporizers to increase the temperature and evaporate the essential oils into the air.

  • Using Nebulizer - Nebulizer will break essential oils into tiny particles, It will need a nozzle and a pump to disperse the essential oil mist into the air quickly.

  • Using a wick - By using a small fan to create airflow, The scent will pass through the wick or pads which hold the essential oils.
