Aromatherapy continues attracting more practitioners everyday as people carry on looking for ways to deal with the stress, anxiety and depression of modern life. It’s a welcome alternative to the many medicinal options out there with large price tags and complicated side effects. Besides being all natural, it’s affordable and gives the user the control of mixing their own combination of oils if they like.
Anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy needs a diffuser to assist. The diffuser essentially hosts both the combination of essential oils and the heat that will be used to disseminate it.
For many people who enjoy aromatherapy, soap stone is the material of choice for their diffusers. It looks great, for one thing, often invoking an ancient flavor. The appeal is only heightened when a candle is added to it. But there are more practical purposes as well.
Soap stone does not react with other chemicals, for one thing. This means when a candle is providing heat to the essential oils, those oils won’t be able to breakdown and mix with the soap stone. With other diffusers this can happen, often resulting in a stained surface. As soap stone is nonporous, if a stain does form, it will not be able to breach the exterior and you can simply scrub it off.
Soap stone also retains heat better than most other materials. So while it might take longer for your soap stone diffuser to heat up, once it does, it will heat evenly and be able to hold that heat for longer.
Right now MedLab has Soap Stone Aromatherapy Diffusers on their website. There are four to choose from and prices range from $6.85 to $14.25. This is a great time to get a quality soap stone diffuser at an affordable price.
