Using Aromatherapy Vapourisers


Aromatherapy burners are a quick and easy way to make your enviromen smell beautiful. In simple terms, they gently heat essentials oils, turning them from a liquid into a vapour which then wafts through the air, filling your room with its beautiful smell. Burners may be used anywhere in the home or office. They can help to lift your spirits and relax you after a hard day's work. Their effects are subtle, and are better suited to raising your mood a little than to healing to focusing your concentration during meditation. You can buy burners on any high street or pound store, or find more eloborate designs at new age shops or festivals.


How Vapourisers Work

Our ability to smell is caused by tiny molecules wafting in the air. When we breathe in these molecules, they are recognised by receptors in the nose. The information is then crried by nerves to the brain, including the areas responsible for emotions, behaviour and memory. The smell molecules also dissolve into our blood stream, allowing their active properties to start working. V apourisers heat essential oils, speeding up the rate at which it evaporates, This means that the scent molecules pass into the air more rapidly, enabling you to breathe in more *scent* in a shorter period of time. As the the Burner warms the essential oil, it also heats the air around it. As hot air rises, this causes the air in the room to circulate, spreading the tiny molecules around more quickly.


How To Use Burner Oil
You can use undiluted essential oils in a burner, or buy special oil blends.
In both cases, you need to add up to 5 drops of the oil into the waiting burner bowl.



Candle Burners
Candle burners consist of a small bowl of oil and water suspended over a candle.


The heat from the candle causes the oil to evaporate into the air.
Fill the burner bowl with water, and add in 3 -5 drops of esssential oil.
As the candle heats the bowl, the oil will evaporate. Use a scented candle to blend your favourite aroma with the oil vapours.



Electronic Burners
In electronic burners, electricity heats up the oil.



One kind of burner consists of a ceramic dish that plugs into the mains.
Put water and a few drops of oil into the dish, and as it heats up, the oil will evaporate.
Another type is a small ceramic loop that fits over the bulb in a table lamp or light fitting.
The bulb's heat evaporates the oil.

Homemade Burners
If you don't want to buy a Burner, a good way to make your own is using an empty baked bean can.
