Hello and welcome to a version of a diffusion class that came into existence back in 2017 with my then colleague Amandine Peter when we taught at the NY Institute of Aromatherapy and what became the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies. Regardless of when the class was envisioned, its origin was our collective frustration with what we thought was nebulous information on the topic of diffusing essential oils, the prevalence of diffusers on the market and what we felt was an “aromatherapy lifestyle” being touted by “the industry.” On top of that were accounts of adverse effects from diffusing essential oils we had personally experienced along with adverse accounts shared by our students, clients and even accounts from conversations with strangers.
This short class is not going to “hit you over the head” with sentiments like “NEVER DIFFUSE ESSENTIAL OILS.” Statements like that are a dis-service to the practice and many benefits of aromatherapy, including benefits through diffusion! The intention of this class is to ponder why to diffuse essential oils, what happens when you diffuse essential oils, what the different diffusion methods are, best practices and more.
