Dear Spiritual Explorer: I am looking for the best way to diffuse my essential oils. Randy P., San Francisco, CA


OM Oil Diffuser

Dear Randy: I like our Om Oil Diffuser. There are many methods to diffuse oil, but I prefer a simple oil diffuser that we carry at Ma’s India. Just place your essential oil into the top of the diffuser, light your candle in the base and within a very short time, your particular essential oil will be emitting its healthy fragrance.

Diffusion is the process of dispersing essential oils so that their aromas fill a room or space with the natural fragrance. There are many types of oils, but the most healing oils are essential oils.

Essential oils, which should not be confused with essential fatty acids, are aromatic compounds from a plant. Essential oils are most often found in the flowers and leaves. The scents are thought to have therapeutic properties.

Essential oils are used in aromatherapy, massage therapy and in other alternative therapies. They’re available in small vials in health food stores and online, and can also be found in products such as soaps, lotions, bath salts and candles. Essential oils evaporate easily into the air, which is why they’re also called volatile oils.

Some of the more popular essential oils include lavender essential oil, tea tree essential oil and eucalyptus essential oil. I mention these because they are amongst the most popular medicinal oils.
