Using vaporization or vaping methods is fast becoming a better way to improve and implement a healthier lifestyle. Vaping essential oil provides fantastic aromatherapy and helps to de-stress.

What is Vaporization?

In science, to vaporize means to turn liquid into vapor, as is perfectly demonstrated in steam rooms. Vaporization can take place by heating product to a specific temperature, suited to the consumer’s specific needs, then turning herbs or oils into beautiful vapor for your inhaling pleasure. . The technique of vaporization has been in existence for many years, some even dating back to the 5th century BC, and was used for healing and other medicinal purposes.

In many Middle Eastern countries, the hookah, also known as shisha or water pipe, was one of the first vaporizing devices used. In the Western world, the first real vaporizer was born in the 1920s, patented and designed in the United States by Joseph Robertson. In the 1960s, Herbert A. Gilbert created the basis of the modern day electronic cigarette that is still used today. During the long run of development and production, vaporizers have essentially drawn inspiration from native tribes and cultural customs in how it is used today. Implementing new technology with traditional modes of healing has proven wildly successful for a wide scope of ailments and complaints.

Essential Oils with Vaporization

Vaporizers also act as humidifiers, which can be used in a room or a living space, where the essential oils are added into the device. A traditional method of aromatherapy involves putting a few drops of essential oil into a bowl of hot water, then placing a towel over your head as you lean over the bowl and deeply inhale the air.

Using the oils in a vape device works quickly with little to no effort. Depending on the device you can simply add a few drops into the unit, set the heating temperature and then inhale deeply. 

Health Benefits

Vaporization can be used to target certain ailments within the body or directly assist in the healing process. Vaporizing can help the body take in compound substances, such as essential oils, directly into the lungs via the respiratory system.

Vaporization can be seen in various cultures as a form of medicinal intake of herbal medicines. By vaporizing the material, it can be heated to the perfect temperature, emitting not smoke but vapor, and allowing the oils and herbs to maintain their full aroma and flavor profiles. It is also absorbed into the body at a quicker rate. When it comes to medicating, faster is always better!

Vaping essential oils also aids in:

  • Soothing sore, infected throats
  • Ridding the body of catarrhal conditions
  • Reducing anxiety and tension
  • Calming the nervous system
  • Relieving mental and physical fatigue
