Vaporizer for an Easier Life

Tue, 04 Aug 2009 10:34:16 GMT

A humidifier is a home appliance used to raise the level of air moisture inside. To respond to the question - How does a humidifier work? First we want to know why it is needed.

In parts of the world where there is 4 seasons, the cold weather can be terribly unpleasant due to the level of water vapor in the air. Humidity is a measure of that water vapor in the air. When the quantity of humidity is up there, it represents the air is already holding large quantities of water and cannot absorb anymore. Thus we do not perspire and we feel hotter than it actually is. Therefore we feel cooler than we should.

Wooden fittings might also need fix as the dryness will make them shrink and crack.

So how does a humidifier operate? Well, basically it pumps water into the air thus causing the humidity level rise. Moisture in our bodies as well as in objects will then raise and we feel warmer.

There are varied types of humidifiers.


The fan blows air across a wet area. If you operate a humidifier of this type, confirm you keep the wet pad clean to prevent bacterial contamination.

Steam or Vaporizers.

A vaporizer puts in water vapor to the air thru distributing steam. The machine has a bowl where water is heated to vapor and then released. Any left over minerals are naturally left behind when the water evaporates. The plus side of this type of humidifier is it destroys bacteria because of the boiling procedure, so it is cleaner.

This humidifier is fundamentally identical as a vaporizer. However before blowing steam into the room, the machine cools it down first. The expellant is then warm foggy air.

Cool Mist

A cool mist humidifier works by expelling water droplets into the room.


This humidifier deploys high-frequency sound waves to smash up and disperse miniscule water droplets into a room. Most bacteria are killed in the procedure, however not everything.

It is a great thing to understand how a humidifier functions. The operation of a humidifier can allow one be more comfortable during winter. It may also help humidity-sensitive perishables like wood, wine as well as cigars to last longer. Choose the right one for your home and have a hotter winter.

Essential Oil And Vaporizers

Since before recorded history, botanicals - in the form of essential oil - have been used for medical healing and spiritual and religious ceremonies. Ancient civilizations used herbal fragrances in all things from mummifying to design, as well as for baths and perfumes. Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, a French cosmetic chemist, coined the term'aromatherapy' in the early 1900s, when he discovered the healing properties of lavender.

Today, essential oils from plants are used both in their pure forms and as ingredients in many cosmetic, body, and bath products. There are different concepts about the mental and physical benefits imparted by precise herbs and other botanicals, yet there's no question that scents have an impact on our moods and sense of well being-one whiff of chocolate chip cookies baking can immediately transport us to the cozy comfort of our mom's kitchen. So consider adding a little scent to your life, and relax and enjoy the benefits you receive.

Essential oils can be employed in some ways ( but never take them internally ). Here are a few suggestions:

Bath : In warm water, essential oils are soaked up thru your skin, and the aromatherapeutic vapors are easily inhaled.

Massage : essential oils penetrate into skin tissues and are circulated throughout the body.

Skin Care : When watered down with other products, essential oils can rejuvenate and moisturize your skin.

Hair Care : Essential oils can brace and excite your hair follicles, and can add shine to your hair.

Inhalation : Whether a spritz on your pillow, a few drops on a tissue, or in a vaporizer, inhaling fancy oils is the best method to enjoy their benefits.

Diffusion : fancy oils can boost your environment via sprays, air fresheners, and diffusers.

The essential oil of each plant has a definite property and use. Here are metaphysical and medicinal uses for some essential oils.

What Is Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the utilization of fragrant oils extracted from plants in the treatment or prevention of illness and help in the reduction of stress, regularly called concentrated oils. The term essential suggests that the oil carries particular smell ( essence ) of the plant, not that it is an especially important or fundamental source.

Since essential oils are so powerful, plenty can irritate the skin unless diluted with carrier oil such as sweet almond oil or olive oil. Essential oils are extracted by distillation but may also be removed by expression or solvent extraction.

Essential oils can be used thru the skin ( massage, shower, adding to bath water ), and inhalation ( ceramic burner, vaporizer, hankie, pillow ) .

Inhalation. Add a few drops into a ceramic burner with a lit candle beneath. When the oil heats up the smell will be dispersed into the air.

Vaporizer. Add a few drops to boiling water and inhale the vapours.

Skin Application. Add several drops to almond or olive oil, decant into your bath water, climb in and relax. You can also buy ready made oils for baths from some pharmacies. If you shower, mix up half the quantity and use on your shower sponge, flannel or body scrub.

Infusion. Some herbs and essential oils can be used as an infusion in a tea but always check before use.
