Why you should own a salt diffuser
What are the benefits of a diffuser?
Diffusing essential oils (Aromatherapy) works by stimulating smell receptors in the nose, sending messages through the nervous system to the limbic system, the part of the brain that controls emotions. The limbic system is connected directly to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance.
What is a salt diffuser?
A salt diffuser is a vessel that carries salt and essential oils. We create special "One Of A Kind Driftwood Diffusers" that are natural, sustainable and beautiful to display at your home.
How does a salt diffuser work?
When placing salt in the diffuser, the salt carries the essential oil particles so that you can enjoy their benefits without the need for electricity or a lit candle. It is the healthiest form of diffusing.
Why do you combine salt and essential oils in your diffusers?
Salt diffusing combines the benefits of Halotherapy (Salt Therapy) and Aromatherapy. Salt Therapy is based on the idea that the negatively charged ions in salt improve our health and mood. Inhaling salt micro-particles may reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, absorb and remove allergens and toxins throughout our respiratory tract, making it easier to breathe while creating a relaxed feeling. We're using the best salt in our opinion- raw harvested untreated Dead Sea Salt.
The unique composition of the Dead Sea water makes it's salt more potent; the Dead Sea lies 365.76 meters below sea level, and over millions of years the hot, dry air and high evaporation rates have contributed to the high salt concentration present in the Dead Sea, making it one of the saltiest seas in the world. Compared to the 3% salt content of ordinary seawater, the Dead Sea water contains 32% salts with a high concentration of twenty-one minerals such as magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium. Twelve of these minerals aren't found in any other sea or ocean in the world.
Aromatherapy works by stimulating smell receptors in the nose, sending messages through the nervous system to the limbic system — the part of the brain that controls emotions. The limbic system is connected directly to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance.
The essential oils in our salt diffuser are released slowly and are not too overpowering. The slow-release means that you don't need to add more essential oils several times a day. It's recommended to add more essential oils to the salt only when the aroma has vanished.
Are salt diffusers healthy?
Yes, the salt diffusers are healthy as they only introduce salt micro-particles, negatively charged ions and essential oils into your house. In places where there's a lot of moisture in the air, It's better to diffuse with salt, cleansing the air rather than introducing more moisture into your house.
Are salt diffusers safe?
Yes. Unlike diffusers that require water, electricity or a lit candle, our salt diffusers don't create a fire hazard and won't introduce access humidity to your house. Just remember to keep the diffuser away from curious young children and pets.
Is it safe to sleep next to a diffuser?
It is perfectly safe to sleep next to a salt diffuser. Inhaling salt micro-particles mixed with a relaxing blend of essential oils while you sleep may reduce inflammation and mucus in your lungs, absorb and remove allergens and toxins from your respiratory tract, making it easier to breathe while creating a relaxed feeling.
Is it safe to breathe diffused essential oils?
Breathing diffused essential oils is safe as long as you only use pure, certified organic essential oils that are allowed for diffusing. Always check the source of your essential oils and make sure they are real essential oils and not lab-made scents that are not considered safe for breathing.
Our pure certified organic blends are carefully formulated to be gentle and beneficial for your health, and breathing them is safe as long as you follow the recommendations.
How often should you change the salt in a salt diffuser?
Change the salt when it changes its colour (about once a month). Add more essential oils when the scent fades.
What is so special about driftwood salt diffusers?
Driftwood is a natural, timeless and sustainable material that is perfect for new creations. It is naturally shaped by the elements and left onshore, providing a blank canvas for creation. You need an artist's eye to discover the potential in every piece of driftwood.
We use salt seasoned driftwood that we gather on the shores of the majestic West Coast of the South Island.
The process of creating a driftwood diffuser is slow. First, we need to hand-pick the right pieces and air dry them. Then starts the thrilling part of revealing the hidden shapes of every piece. This is not a quick process, as all work is done by hand. Finally, when the diffusers are shaped, they are coated with several coats of wax and linseed oil or a special resin.
So if you're looking for a one of a kind salt diffuser that does everything that a regular diffuser does, but is so much more,
our unique and sustainable "One Of A Kind Driftwood Salt Diffusers" are just for you.
