The most important criteria for good essential oils are quality and naturalness. The synthetic oils, which are also offered as scented oils, are controversial. Essential oils from plants can contain up to 300 different ingredients, each with its own individual effect. And yet they ultimately result in a harmonious interplay in their common effect on people.

Essential oils are not only obtained from plants but also from parts of plants. This includes the fruits as well as the branches, leaves, roots, and seeds. The therapeutic effectiveness of lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint has been medically proven. This applies to the physical as well as the psychological effect.

Choose the right aroma oils for diffusers

The room fragrance can be combined with a diffuser with subtle ambient light. Cold nebulization is often perceived as very pleasant. In the case of combined devices, it should be possible to switch the nebulization and lighting separately from one another and at intervals. In the case of a diffuser with automatic color change, this should be switched off. Constant color changes can be counterproductive. So much for the facts, for the question: which aroma diffuser should I buy?
