Travel Diffuser Essential Oils

There are different types of travel diffusers and they all perform the same task – but some work better than others. I recommend finding one that contains a few drops of each of the following essential oils: geranium, rose, vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood, Rosemary, sweet orange, sweet pepper, clove, cinnamon, and lemon. The ones I listed are only a few of the many that are available. If you want to see the whole array of choices, check out my website.

This is an important step because it lets you know how much oil you need to use in your diffuser. Typically, it’s best to use at least 2 drops for every 4 inches of distance that you plan to cover. This doesn’t always have to be the exact amount though. My recommendation is to experiment and figure out what works best for you.

You should also learn as much as possible about each essential oil. A quick look through the essential oils list on my website will give you a good start. Once you get to know a few different ones, you’ll likely be able to make a choice without looking at the scientific data behind them. Some of the oils can actually be found in other products.

A Much Ado


A common question asked about diffusers is how they compare to candles. In reality, they’re more similar to oil-burning lamps. One difference is that they can be more powerful and last longer. They don’t need a flame for them to work, which is why they are a bit more expensive than candles.

Some people worry that using a diffuser might mean they have to change their homes as they now have an open flame. This is rarely the case. Most diffusers have a special cap that covers the flame and ensures that it stays confined to that small area. As long as you keep it lit, you won’t cause any damage to your home. It’s also safe to use any essential oil you like, so long as you completely follow the instructions in the bottle.

Bottom Line

When shopping for diffusers, be sure to look for products that will not cause any fire or explosion hazards. The best types of diffusers have safety indicators in them, as well as a shut off to prevent the flow of gas. These are particularly important if you have children or pets in your home. If you have these essential oils in your home already, by all means, use a diffuser to help you enjoy more scent without going through the mess of a traditional candle or oil burner.
