How Aromatherapy is Administered

The traditional method of aromatherapy involves the use of diffusers, ranging from lighting scented candles that release fine aromas to using potpourri and wooden stick diffusers that aerate a light scent. However, these methods often have to be replaced on a daily basis or are fire hazards, especially in public areas such as hotel lobbies that are subject to large amounts of traffic and an abundance of odors. Fortunately, recent innovations has led to a new trend of ultrasonic diffusers involving electric appliances that vibrate water at a high rate to produce a fine mist that can permeate the air. These aromatherapy diffusers often come with attractive LED lights that can add to the overall ambiance of the hotel as well as provide a tranquil and natural appearance. Some even have stereo systems built in that can replicate natural outdoor sounds to truly provide a nature-induced feeling, or can play a light classical Mozart tune for enjoyment. Simply add a few drops of essential oils and these modern diffusers can surely loosen up the mood.
