Aromatherapy Oil Burner: Helpful Tips

An aromatherapy oil burner is a dispenser with which one uses to dispense essential oil into a room or space.

Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to calm the nerves and relieve stress. Aromatherapy induces relief through the sense of smell. The different scents of Aromatherapy can be found in many forms such as incense sticks, bath cubes, and oil to name a few. These are used differently for different purposes.

  • Incense sticks are used by lighting them; they burn very slowly letting the scent fill the room or space they are in.
  • Bath cubes are used for bathing purposes. One drops then in the filled tub and benefits from both the scent and the bath which is now conditioned with the aromatherapy oil from the bath cube.
  • Oil is used in couple of ways. One way is to massage it into the skin, benefiting from the scent released and from the massage as well; another way is to use an aromatherapy oil burner with which one heats up the oil so it evaporates and by doing so releases the scent throughout the room or space. The aromatherapy oil burner is very powerful due to the live flame under the oil which makes the oil disperse quickly. One should be aware of this and not overdo the use of oil as it can get quite strong if used in large amounts.
