Just a few decades ago, the idea of a zero nicotine option was almost unfathomable. Why would anybody choose to puff if they didn’t get the nicotine hit that they were craving?

Fast forward to the modern-day and 0% nicotine products are everywhere. You only have to take a look in any grocery shop or health store to spot these items.

But why would anybody spend money on something that contains no nicotine, especially if they’re trying to find the best alternatives to smoking cigarettes?

There are actually a lot of benefits to using no nicotine diffusers.. The most obvious benefit is the fact that they don’t contain any nicotine. If you’re weaning yourself off cigarettes, the thought of losing out on your nicotine fix might be unbearable.

Understandably, you won’t want to completely cut the nicotine out of your life straight away. Very few people can quit smoking cold turkey. But if you plan on quitting smoking for good, you will eventually have to survive without any nicotine at all.


Zero nicotine diffusers are the perfect way to soothe your senses, without using a nicotine-containing product. These products are a great way to slowly wean yourself off nicotine to promote long-term success.

Aside from this, there are lots more amazing benefits to using nicotine-free products. I’m going to cover some of these benefits in this article to show you why every nicotine free puff counts when it comes to your health.

Switching to Vaping

It’s a big achievement to switch from cigarettes to vaping. Smoking is highly addictive, so making this first switch is already a huge step in the right direction. The problem is that vaping still provides you with a nicotine hit every time you take a puff.

So, yes, you’re not smoking tobacco and you’re not being exposed to the many carcinogens in cigarette smoke. But you’re still fuelling the nicotine addiction. 

Using an Herbal Alternative

When you’re reducing your tobacco, trying a nicotine-free option could work for you. Using this type of product may even help you quit smoking quicker and will enable you to carry on for years without ever feeling the need to reach for a cigarette.

This can be beneficial in two ways. Firstly, there is the behavioural side to smoking. You are still performing the same kind of actions as you would with a device that contains nicotine. Therefore, you will still get some of the same satisfaction, despite there being 0% nicotine.

Secondly, you will also experience the many health benefits that natural plant extracts can provide for the body with every nicotine free puff that you take.

Let’s get into these benefits in more detail as well as some of the other benefits of switching to a zero nicotine diffuser.

Benefits of Going Nicotine Free

We’ve talked about the benefits of using herbal remedies in lots of our other articles and you’ll gain all of these health benefits when you use an aromatherapy diffuser.

To quickly name a few of the benefits of natural plant extracts:

  • Improved mood
  • Decreased symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Increased mental clarity and focus
  • Reduced stress
  • Antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties
  • Reduced nausea
  • Fewer headaches or migraines
  • Reduced inflammation

Many of these benefits overlap with the reasons why people smoke in the first place. For example, most people smoke because they want stress relief or they want to reduce their anxiety. Switching to an herbal alternative will provide these same benefits without containing the same harmful toxins.

There’s also the fact that using a nicotine-free diffuser is cheaper than using a normal vape or smoking cigarettes. Over time, you could save yourself a lot of money by making the switch.

Keeping all of these benefits in mind will, hopefully, make things easier when you are converting to a no nicotine aromatic diffuser. You can improve your health, your wallet, and your quality of life all at the same time!

Choosing a Flavour

Using a few different flavours also keeps things more varied and enhances your puffing experience.

Certain flavours will provide a stronger ‘throat hit’ than others. In other words, you’ll feel them in your throat when you puff in the same way as you would after taking a puff on a cigarette.

For many people, the ‘throat hit’ is a key part of the smoking experience. The sensation of feeling the tobacco smoke hit the back of your throat can have a calming and stress-relieving effect in and of itself. So, finding a flavour that provides the same hit may be beneficial for those of you who get satisfaction from that feeling.

Other flavours taste and smell great, and you might want to make your decision based on your favourite aromas.

The best essential oils for your herbal vape are those that have anxiolytic properties. We’ve got lots of articles on the best essential oils for quitting smoking and for sleep and we go through the individual properties of each oil in those!

Final Thoughts

Smoking has a range of negative impacts on your life. Smoking affects every aspect of your life - your physical health, mental health, emotional health, and even your sex life. And these effects can stick with you for years.

Even if you only smoke socially, you can still experience these negative effects because you are being exposed to the harmful carcinogens in cigarette smoke.

That’s why finding alternatives to smoking cigarettes can be life-changing. Try weaning yourself off cigarettes by switching over to lower nicotine options.

Eventually, you will feel able to make the switch to a zero nicotine option or an aromatherapy diffuser, and your nicotine dependence will be no more! Once you’ve made the switch, you will start noticing the amazing benefits of going nicotine-free within weeks of quitting smoking.
