- Pot of Simmering Water: You can add drops of essential oils into hot simmering water
and stir to combine then just keep it simmering on your stove for the day. As the water turns to steam the molecules will be lifted into the air. The Pro: Inexpensive!! The Con: Due to oil and water not mixing very well the scent you achieve in the air will be faint at best, plus unwanted heat in your home is no fun in the summer. You can mix the oil with some Epsom salt and then add it to the water to better combine the oil and water, however I still only achieved a faint smell.
- Spray Bottle of Water and Oil: You can use a glass spray bottle (oils will erode plastic) add purified or distilled water and then add drops of essential oils. Pro: Inexpensive to start, Wonderful Smell!! Con: This method gives you a much better scent in the air, however you will use a lot more oils going this route. Due to the molecules coming out of the spray bottle in a much larger form it will take many more drops of essential oil to achieve the results you are looking for. Also the water can settle places you would rather not have it, such as on your bed. I would use this method to replace air fresheners in your home in places like the bathroom.
How about you? Have you used another brand successfully or do you use a method I haven't listed?
