Using a Diffuser

There are several types of essential oil diffusers. The oldest systems are still the most common: they are the candles or burners, also called oil burners or oil warmers.


In order to use the essential oils formulas of this website, an oil warmer heated by candles is enough.


They are rather cheap, environmentally friendly, and are sold in many forms, allowing to find one that blends well with the decor of the room in which it will be used.

Electrical devices, which simply diffuse the oils, or are coupled to ionization or humidification systems are also commercially available. More modern, ultrasonic wave nebulizers are sold as having the advantage of providing a broader diffusion of the aromas.


Choosing an oil warmer

Choosing a burner for essential oils should not be limited to aesthetics, we must also think about its use. The principle is simple: a candle heats a cup that contains essential oils in suspension in water. The heat causes the sublimation of the oils which are thus dispersed into the surrounding air.

The cup must be large enough to accommodate the required amount of water for the duration of the candle, determined by the size (4 to 6 hours).


The bottom of the cup, facing the flame of the candle, will be enamel coated, heat-resistant, and easy to clean to prevent an accumulation of soot.


The candles that match the heaters are called tealights. Depending on their size, they may last 4 to 6 hours. They come at different prices, depending on their quality. Some are already perfumed, it is best to avoid them for that use.
