Because they’re simple and beautiful, natural, without using water and electricity and affordable, wooden oil diffusers have an undeniable following.

However, there are a few things to consider before making your purchase. Wooden oil diffusers work best with essential oils that have a high terpene content.

This means that the essential oil will diffuse more quickly and evenly through the wood. If you’re looking for a wooden diffuser that can diffuse other types of oils, be sure to read the reviews first to make sure it’s compatible.

Let us delve deeper into the details.

What is a wooden essential oil diffuser?

A wooden essential oil diffuser is a natural diffuser made out of real wood that is usually small, portable device that absorbs and releases the aroma of the essential oils into the air. It is an evaporative type of diffuser. It does not require water, electricity or even battery to function thus you can take it anywhere. They do not produce steam or smoke and none of the noise other diffusers have, therefore it’s also perfect to use if you want a relaxing and peaceful sleep.

They will only require few drops of your favorite essential oils and it will last for about 6 hours and will start to fade after 8 hours. Some of the most popular wooden essential oil diffusers include the Japanese Cypress Handcrafted Wood Diffuser by Vorda and the Wooden Essential Oil Diffuser for On-the-go by Plantish.

Some people, such as myself, enjoy this because it’s so easy to use and it’s a truly natural way of diffusing and enjoying the essential oils. Aside from that you can literally use it anywhere and anytime, while others simply love the look and feel of having a natural element in our home rather than plastic or metal.

We should really be aware of the numerous varieties of popular wood diffusers available on the market today, including the reed diffuser sticks. In my opinion, this is the most practical type of essential oil diffuser available. And just like any type of diffuser, it’s best to use the purest essential oil to get the best result.

Moreover, it will take around 3 days before the scent of the previous scent is thoroughly dispersed out of your wood diffuser, after that you can try and enjoy a new scent.

Can a wooden essential oil diffusers cover an entire room?

Most likely not. In my experience, this type of diffuser do not have the capacity to cover an entire room with its scent, especially big rooms like the living room or bedroom. But it will work effectively in a tiny room, a booth or cubicle, small office and bathroom.

In comparison to the other types of diffuser such as the ultrasonic diffuser, a wood diffuser may not be as efficient when it comes to diffusing a large room but it can still have delicate effect.
