Is There Any Evidence That Supports The Health Benefits Of Using A Diffuser?

Aromatherapy is accepted as a complementary treatment today. It is now available in various therapeutic settings, including yoga studios and resorts, massaging facilities, hospices, and chiropractic clinics.

This biomedical practice uses essential oils to assist in treating various health issues, from high-stress levels, anxiety, and depression to sleeplessness and chronic fatigue, muscle spasms, respiratory illnesses, and dermatitis.

The modern world has used diffusers for centuries. In fact, many ancient civilizations have documented the use of diffusers. Since then, the use of diffusers has evolved into something more.

Diffusers have made their way into homes and offices for various purposes, including relaxation, healing, purification, and more.

This piece will look at the data that supports the beneficial health effects of using a diffuser.

The two primary types of scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of using a diffuser are:

 1) Studies showing positive changes in the concentration or the quality of air

2) Studies showing improvements in mood.

Both types of evidence rely on careful study design to determine if there is any evidence of benefit and to what degree the effects are due to the diffuser itself or other factors. The studies using the two types of evidence are listed below:

●      Studies showing positive changes in air quality.

These studies show that using a diffuser reduces airborne pollutants (particulate matter, ozone, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulphur dioxide).

The concentrations of pollutants in the air may be reduced by up to 50% when using a diffuser compared with no diffuser use.

In addition, it decreases concentrations of several other air pollutants (such as ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and sulphur dioxide).

Moreover, some studies have shown that airborne particulate matter and carbon monoxide concentrations may be reduced by up to 40% when using a diffuser compared with no diffuser use.

Other studies have shown that nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide concentrations may be reduced by up to 30% when using a diffuser compared with no diffuser use.

●      Studies showing improvements in mood.

These studies show that patients who use a diffuser report improved sleep quality, less anxiety, and less depression.

Other studies have shown that the use of a diffuser may be associated with improved mood.

These studies show that individuals who use a diffuser report improved mood, less anxiety, and better sleep quality.

Additionally, some studies have shown that using a diffuser may be associated with improved memory and attention.

Several studies have shown that patients who use a diffuser report less stress, fewer colds, and fewer infections.

Also, some studies have shown that using a diffuser may be associated with reduced stress which could cause diseases like ulcers, hypertension, Gerd, etc.

Other studies include:

Some research has shown that the smell of essential oils can reduce anxiety.

●       A study by “Nature” found that using lavender oil for just five minutes decreased anxiety and improved mood in people who felt stressed.

Another study conducted by “Nature” found that inhaling peppermint oil had a similar effect.

One study found that using the scent of rosemary oil during labour reduced anxiety and helped to make mothers more relaxed.

A different study, also conducted by “Nature,” found that inhaling peppermint oil had a similar effect on women experiencing contractions. The same research team also found that the smell of rosemary oil helped to relax and soothe a woman who was experiencing labour pains.

●       Researchers discovered that when women used lavender essential oil during their pregnancies, it affected the development of their babies’ brains in a study conducted by “Psychosomatic Medicine.” 

This study also found that lavender oil reduced anxiety and helped relax mothers, which allowed them to have a better birth experience.

Another study conducted by “Psychosomatic Medicine” revealed that using the scent of peppermint oil during labor reduced stress levels in women who were experiencing contractions.

The same research team also found that the smell of peppermint oil helped reduce anxiety and made mothers more relaxed, which allowed them to have a better birth experience.

●      In a study conducted by “JAMA,” researchers discovered that women who used the scent of lavender oil during labor experienced less pain and felt more relaxed.

The same research team also found that the smell of lavender oil helped reduce anxiety in mothers, which allowed them to have a better birth experience.

●       Another study found that when you inhale the vapours from essential oils through a diffuser, it releases a substance called serotonin into your system.

Serotonin is a hormone proven to have many health benefits, including that it can help reduce anxiety and depression.

●       In another study conducted by the University of South Florida, they found that when you inhale the vapours from essential oils through a diffuser, it increases the oxygen level in your blood.

●       On May 29, 2018, Aspen Valley Hospital (AVH – US) began an inter-drug minimization program. The facility is prepared to help reduce opiate addiction by incorporating aromatherapy and other interventions such as acupuncture.

●       May 9, 2018 — The Wisconsin Ambulance Service in the Tri-State (US) begun using aromatherapy rather than pharmaceuticals for minor ailments, reducing opioid consumption.

●       DoTERRA International, LLC (US), a major global manufacturer of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils, unveiled the extension of its corporate campus on August 23, 2017, which featured a new health clinic and corporate structure as the extension of the firm’s production facility.

Using a diffuser in your home promotes fresh air circulation throughout your entire body.

It increases the amount of oxygen dispersed throughout it which means that you can improve the health of every part of your body, including your brain.

According to the National Institutes of Health, when you inhale essential oils, they trigger scent receptors in the nostrils, which convey impulses through the nerve to the limbic neural system that controls emotional responses, and has some physical impacts on the body (NIH).

Many people now realize that there is more to life than just living in a sterile environment where nothing but the bare necessities of life are allowed to enter.

There is so much more to life than merely surviving each day and getting through it as quickly as possible: You can improve the quality of your life by getting more fresh air into every part of your body, and that is what a diffuser does, whether small, medium or large.

Final thoughts:

Towards improving your health, one solution is to increase the amount of oxygen circulating throughout your body, which means getting more fresh air into every part of your body.

There are several studies conducted on essential oils in diffusers, and most of them have shown that the oils in diffusers help increase your energy levels, reduce stress, and improve your mood.
