Beauty Insider aka your BFF, has listed out the best diffusers in Malaysia to turn your house into your home.

Types of Diffusers

1. Nebulising Essential Oil Diffusers

Nebulising diffusers use a high-velocity, pressured air stream and a jet nozzle to break down the essential oil into small particles. When the oil is ejected from the diffuser, it disperses in a thin mist into the air. The tiny mist produced by the nebulizing diffuser has no effect on the chemical composition or fragrance of the oil since it diffuses it all at once rather than in phases. The particles are tiny enough to be breathed readily and utilised for aromatherapy.

2. Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffusers

The ultrasonic diffuser is the most popular type of diffuser. This diffuser creates a fine mist from essential oils and water using water and electrical frequencies. A little disc under the water’s surface generates ultrasonic vibrations, which force the essential oil to split up into tiny micro particles.

3. Evaporative Essential Oil Diffusers

Air flow is used by evaporative diffusers to distribute the fragrance of essential oils throughout the room. A fan circulates air through a filter, such as a tissue or a pad soaked in essential oils. The oil soon evaporates due to the flowing air, and the air containing the evaporated oil is blasted into and around the room.

4. Heat Essential Oil Diffusers

As the name implies, heat diffusees employ heat components to assist essential oils slowly evaporate into the air. Heat essential oil diffusers are sometimes used with the oil combined with water. Some heat diffusers utilise extremely high temperatures to produce a stronger scent, while the finest heat diffusers use extremely low temperatures to prevent dramatically altering the chemical components of the oils being diffused.
