Natural essential oils can significantly enrich our everyday lives. Depending on the mood, the different oils and their individual properties can be used selectively, for example, to refresh body and mind, to give us rest or to bring a harmonious mood into the room.
The most common way to enjoy the effects of the essential oils is to inhale their fragrance. As a result, the range of applications focuses mainly on the respiratory organs and the psycho-emotional area. There are different ways to get the essential oils into the air.
Room scenting by heat
The most well-known method is the application in the fragrance lamp. Here, the essential oils are poured into a bowl of water, under which a candle or an electric light bulb are attached as a heat source. The oil then rises through the heat with the water vapor upwards. This method is an atmospheric variant.
However, too much heat is not beneficial to the quality of the oil. The oils can be damaged by the heat, which the attentive observer can notice in the fragrance development and effect. When the fragrance lamp is well constructed, that is, when the bowl is so large that it holds enough water, the oil does not become too hot. As a very good variant of the aroma lamp are so-called Thermo Scent Stones, where a built-in thermostat prevents the oil from getting too hot.
Room scenting through ventilation
Probably the most practical devices for room fragrancing are devices in which the oil is dripped onto prefabricated pads. Built-in fans then swirl the scent into the air. The fragrance change is not a problem as different fragrances can be dripped on different pads in a row. Further cleaning is not necessary, which is why these devices are particularly popular for use at work, in the office, in hospital rooms and of course at home.
