One of the most beautiful ways to use aromatherapy is with a vaporiser. As the droplets of water evaporate into the air carrying the essential oils with them, those who are in the room (breathing!) will be affected! This is a great way to enjoy the benefits of essential oils and create a very effective antiseptic air freshener and mood enhancer at the same time.
The ritual of lighting a vaporiser at the beginning or end of a full day is a significant way to change your state of mind. When you are feeling challenged and pulled in every direction the vaporiser can be your ‘secret weapon’. As you light the candle inside the vaporiser, think about igniting and regenerating the inner light within you — the ‘inner flame’ that sometimes dims, especially as we get busy and stress gets the better of us.
If there is light in the soul there is beauty in the person
If there is beauty in the person there is harmony in the home
If there is harmony in the home there is order in the nation
If there is order in the nation there is peace in this world.
There are many vaporisers on the market today. We recommend that you use a fully glazed, glass or stainless steel vaporiser as they don’t absorb the aromatic substances. The candles you use should be quality, clean burning ones. Electric vaporisers are beneficial in hospitals, children’s bedrooms or for vaporising during the night.
Fill the top of the vaporiser with water and light the candle at the base of the unit. If you are using an electric vaporiser, switch it on after you have filled it with water. Now add 6-8 drops of essential oils to the water. As the water warms the aromatic vapours are released into the air.
