Elk & Bear: Handpicked announces the addition of the Aromatherapy Ultrasonic Diffuser to their line-up of high quality, high design products. Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Aromatherapy and essential oils have been used around the world for centuries. Ancient civilizations including the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese have used essential oils for health, healing, spiritual and therapeutic purposes. Distilled essential oils have even been used as medicines as far back as the eleventh century when Avicenna, author of The Canon of Medicine, first isolated essential oils using steam distillation. Essential oils were also used as an antiseptic during World War II.
Aromatherapy diffusers are used as a highly effective way to release the calming and healing properties of essential oils into one's home, office, meditation room, yoga studio, nursery, kitchen or bathroom. Essential oils are much more than a simple "air freshener". They have a wide variety of health benefits including sinus and migraine relief, mood enhancement, acne relief, relaxation, stress relief and insomnia relief.
Elk & Bear: Handpicked has created a high capacity, beautiful and well designed Aromatherapy diffuser that will ultrasonically distribute the essential oils in any environment. It is actually 5 products in 1: an Aromatherapy Diffuser, Humidifier, Air Purifier, Ionizer, and Night Light. Its patented misting system works as a humidifier as well, aiding in sinus, throat and respiratory issues caused by dry winter air. Simply fill the diffuser with water, add a few drops of essential oils and enjoy up to 10 hours of continuous mist. Or program the timer for shorter periods of time. The diffuser contains an automatic shut-off for safety. If the device runs out of water, it will turn off automatically. It uses no heat, so it is safe for any area, including a child's room.
The state of the art ultrasonic diffusing technology creates vibrations at a frequency of 2.4 millions times per second. This breaks down the water and essential oils into an extremely fine micro-particles mist without using heat (heat alters and destroys the properties of essential oils). Ultrasonic diffusing maintains the integrity of the essential oils' beneficial molecular structure and allows for easy absorption. The Elk & Bear electric, ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser is especially engineered to work with any essential oil or essential oil blend. Now it's easy to take advantage of the health and healing benefits of essential oils with Elk and Bear’s Ultrasonic Aromatherapy diffuser. Available exclusively on Amazon.com
