What are Electric Oil Burners?
Bathing in the fragrance of some sweet and spicy cinnamon oil while reading your favourite book, or burning some Vetiver essential oil as you’re going deeper into your meditation can soothe mind and body, and help the transition to a calmer, meditative state. The easiest and safest way to diffuse essential oils is using an electric oil burner which uses electric power as a heat source to heat the oil, so you don’t need to worry about knocking down a burning candle, or falling asleep without blowing it out.
Electric oil burners usually come with a slightly higher price than oil burners with a candle, but they don’t overheat the oils as they keep the oils at a not too warm, steady temperature. They can also be used in public places, unlike oil burners with candles. It’s easy and safe to use them: just place the essential oil or wax melt into the bowl without water and turn the burner on to diffuse your favourite home fragrance. It is good to clean the bowl as often as you can because the oily residue seeps into the glaze of the bowl and can become a fire hazard.
If you don’t want your oils to be heated because heating does modify the properties of essential oils, you can use an electric-powered fan diffuser that disperses the essential oil without heating them. These diffusers best preserve the integrity of the essential oils as they use kinetic energy (they blow air) to disperse the essential oils through propelling cool water vapour – containing the scent of the oil – into the air.
If you’d like to try one of these burners as part of a little aromatherapy ritual in your home – which also goes well with burning incenses at the same time – you might want to browse our website and see what we’ve got.
