Many people have this doubt and keep asking me about whether they should use their essential oil diffuser and air purifier in the same room simultaneously?
Well, while this is not a necessity, there is nothing harm in using both these devices together at the same time.
But for those of you who want to operate one at a time or get confused about which one should they actually use at a time, the answer is bit different.
This would definitely depend on the conditions of your home and the environmental conditions.
Oil Diffuser Vs Air Purifier
Reasons, why diffusers are considered in the home, are:
- Eases depression and elevate your spirit
- Provide therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy
- Eliminate stinky smell in your room to ultimately freshen up the house
Reasons, why air purifiers are considered to be an important element for every home, are:
- Removes pet dander, dust, and allergens
- Removes bad smell, odor, germs, and smoke particles
- Eliminates molds which range from nearly 1 to 20 microns
Which One Should You Buy First?
Care that oil diffusers do not purify air in your room. So if your aim is to get clean purified air you should buy an air purfier.
And as air purifier does not provide aroma, you should consider buying an oil diffuser if your aim is to get aromatic air in your room.
No doubt both of these devices can help make your home comfortable as well as healthy without you worrying about the health of your family members.
If you have both of them at home, you can keep them on simultaneously to make your home feel and smell pleasant.
However, if you want to purchase one among them, you should consider your requirements carefully and pick the one that is most needed.
Can I Use Essential Oil In Air Purifier?
This is a BIG NO
I know it may sound to be a funny question for many of you.
But believe me, people who want to use essential oils for the first time often have this awkward question in mind.
Whether they can use their favorite essential oil in their air purifier machine?
Well, your air purifier device is intended to purify the air and it does not work with any kind of water, chemicals or solutions.
And for this reason, there is no way to put the essential oils in the air purifying device you may already be using at home.
But if you want to use air purifier with oils, you can place another essential oil diffuser in a room accompanying your air purifier.
This way both of them work individually to provide you clean as well as fresh aromatic air in your room.
Can I Use Essential Oils To Disinfect The Air?
Now thats an interesting question to answer!
You wont believe, the simple answer is YES
While an oil diffuser machine does not purify the air and an air purifier machine does not fragrance your room, still there are ways by which you can diffuse essential oils to clean the air.
This is by choosing the specific essential oils that are meant to kill the allergens (like harmful bacteria, viruses, pathogens, etc in the air).
You can simply choose to buy essential oils that are aimed for killing germs in the air. And by diffusing them in your diffuser you can use them for cleaning and disinfecting the air around you.
Some of the best essential oils you can use to disinfect the air are:
- Thyme Essential Oil
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Oregano Essential Oil
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Cinnamon Essential Oil
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
Care that these essential oils do not purify the air as efficiently as an air purifier. These can only help you clean the air ocassionally.
So if you want a device that can clean and purifiy the air on day to day basis you should go for a good air purifier device.
