What is a Humidifier?


Moisturizing the air in a room is needed in dry climates, and in some climates when the heat is turned on in the fall and wintertime. Dry air can cause problems with skin dryness, bacterial and viral problems, and make it more difficult for people to fall asleep. Many people use a humidifier for treating the symptoms of colds, flu, and sinus congestion.

Humidifiers are different from essential oils diffusers in that most humidifiers in today’s market do not support the mixing of essential oils for distribution in the air. Essential Oils can often damage the plastic components of a humidifier if the model is not designed for use with essential oils.

A few humidifiers are designed to work both as a humidifier and a diffuser, and we’re seeing more of these models hit the marketplace as it’s a growing trend. But today if you are looking to distribute essential oils in the air, we still recommend choosing a small personal diffuser that is suitable for using with essential oils.
