Everyone is familiar with essential oils these days, but most people are unaware of how essential oils really work. The volatile aromatic molecules have an affinity with the air and space; it has been proven that the antimicrobial effects of aromatherapy essential oils are most potent NOT when the oil is used in liquid form, but when pathogens are exposed to the vapors of the oil.
In other words, the most effective way of utilizing aromatherapy oils for reducing atmospheric contagion, neutralizing airborne illnesses and enhancing immunity is through the use of aromatic diffusers, ionizers and nebulizers.
