    Having a humidifier or combined oil diffuser and humidifier in a child's bedroom can offer several benefits, including:

    Relieving dry skin: A humidifier can help to add moisture to the air, which can prevent skin from becoming dry and itchy. This is especially beneficial during the winter months when indoor heating can make the air very dry.

    Alleviating cold and flu symptoms: Dry air can exacerbate cold and flu symptoms, such as a dry cough, stuffy nose, and sore throat. A humidifier can add moisture to the air, which can help to ease these symptoms and make breathing more comfortable.

    Reducing the risk of infections: The risk of colds and other respiratory infections can be reduced by preventing nasal mucous membranes from drying out. The recommended level of humidity is between 30 and 50 percent.  Researchers have also found that humidifiers might reduce the risk of catching the flu. Humidity levels above 40 percent rapidly deactivated virus particles, making them much less likely to be infectious. To ensure the correct humidity you can easily monitor levels with a portable digital weather station from Bodi-Tek

    Promoting better sleep: Dry air can cause discomfort and lead to restless sleep. A humidifier can add moisture to the air, which can help to promote better sleep by keeping the air comfortable and reducing congestion. Adding essential aromatherapy oils can also help create a soothing calming atmosphere for more restful sleep.

    A combined essential oil aroma diffuser, humidifier and night light is often considered the best all round solution for a bedroom. See Rio's combined humidiers, oil diffusers and night lights here.

    It is important to note that humidifiers and diffusers need to be cleaned regularly to prevent the growth of mould and bacteria. Humidifiers should also be placed out of the reach of young children.
