To diffuse simply means to spread out or disperse over a large area, while a
diffuser is a special air pump designed to distribute essential oils into a micro-fine vapor where they stay suspended for a time to reduce airborne infectious pathogens, fungus, mold, and freshen the air with natural fragrances. Essential oils are more easily absorbed into the body through this process.
I have often been asked which diffuser is the best. Unfortunately, with so many different types of diffusers available (each with its benefits and downsides), the only way to truly answer that question is—it depends on what you like in a diffuser.
There are four different categories of diffusers available on the market today. Each of these types of diffusers differs in the way that it puts essential oils into the air, and each has different benefits. These four categories include: nebulizing diffusers, ultrasonic or humidifying diffusers, evaporative diffusers, and heat diffusers.
Below are examples of nebulizing diffusers:
Aroma Ace with On Guard
The Aroma-Ace is a powerful, compact, and easy to use Essential Oil Diffuser System. It has built in on/off timers and output volume control for easy adjustments. For instance, you can choose to have it run for 5 minutes every 20 minutes until you manually turn it off. This is a great setting for therapeutic benefits in a standard sized bedroom. You can adjust timing & output for larger rooms &/or potency. Vapor is cool to the touch & the device is made in the USA. It is available for purchase through www.mydoterra.com/stacymcclelland & www.aromatools.com
Unique to doTERRA, the Lotus diffuser uses a highly efficient real time atomization technology to effectively diffuse essential oils into the environment. The essential oils are atomized into minute ion particles and active oxygen anions, which are more easily absorbed by the human body than oils diffused by conventional diffusers. It also has timer controls and has ability to glow a cobalt blue when in use. dōTERRA® is pleased to be the exclusive distributor of the Lotus diffuser to you and your family & is available for purchase at www.mydoterra.com/stacymcclelland.
Economy Model Diffuser with Cork Nebulizer:
The Economy Model diffuser with side-loading cork nebulizer is a powerful—yet economical—solution for diffusing essential oils into the air for aromatherapy. This diffuser uses cold room-temperature air to create a fine mist of essential oil that is quickly dispersed throughout the room (up to approximately 300 square feet) without heating or altering the oil constituents. Its quiet operation also makes this diffuser pleasant during sleep. Available for purchase through www.aromatools.com
Well & Jet Diffuser with Pump:
The Well & Jet Diffuser, one of the most powerful and versatile diffusers on the market today, is not only extremely easy to operate and clean, but also efficiently diffuses oils into a room. Oil placed into the well is drawn into the nebulizer and diffused into the room by the powerful pump. The base unit (with glass nebulizer) is separated from the pump by 3-4 feet of tubing so that the pump can be placed on the floor behind an end table or night stand, reducing the noise of the pump and enhancing the visual aspect of the diffuser. The base unit is available in several beautiful metallic colors & model is available for purchase through www.aromatools.com
The following are examples of evaporative diffusers:

This sleek diffuser is wonderful for both adding humidity to the air, and for dispersing your desired essential oil or blend throughout a room!

This diffuser is nearly silent—all you will really hear is the gentle sound of trickling water—so it can be used both at night or during the day.
