How Negative ions and Aromatherapy Help You Act and Feel Younger

More than 100 years ago, scientists discovered a connection between the quality of the air we breathe and our mood. What they eventually realized is that fresh, healthy air is full of negative ions. Further research showed that when people breathe these negative ions they exhibited less depression, stress, and anxiety. In fact, their overall well being seemed better than ever. They had more energy, slept better, smiled more and just seemed to act more youthful! And just like, negative ions were labeled, the “vitamins of the air.” 

What are ions?

The air is filled with odorless, tasteless molecules that may or may not have an electrical charge. These are called ions, and they can be positive or negative. But don’t be fooled by their names; think of them as the exact opposite. Positive ions have a negative effect on your overall outlook and negative ions have a positive effect. 

“We inhale negative ions in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy,” says WebMD.  When you breathe fresh mountain air, you’re actually inhaling thousands and thousands of beneficial negative ions. By comparison, the air in your house or at your office only has a few dozen negative ions floating around. Things like air conditioning, office equipment,  fluorescent lights, cell phones, televisions, computers, toxic carpeting, upholstery, paint, and air pollution are all working hard to create positive ions, which despite their name, are actually bad for your health. Overexposure to positive ions may leave you feeling depressed, tired, and anxious. When positive ions meet negative ions they bond together like magnets, forming a new ion that’s too heavy to stay in the air, making it one less bad thing for you to inhale. 

RIA generates 1.5 million negative ions directly in front of your nose and mouth, doing their job to bind together with the positive ions so prevalent in the air indoors, they fall away before you can inhale them. The overall result? You feel more like you did when you were younger: Energized, happier, and healthier. 


"The action of the pounding surf creates negative air ions and we also see it immediately after spring thunderstorms when people report lightened moods," says ion researcher Michael Terman, PhD, of Columbia University in New York.

RIA doubles as an on--call aromatherapist.

When essential oil therapy and negative ions work together, the effects of both are compounded.

Aromatherapy, also known as essential oil therapy, is a holistic healing treatment that uses aromatic natural concentrated plant extracts (essential oils) to promote the health and well-being of the body, mind, and spirit, enhancing both physical and emotional health. Research indicates that breathing in the aroma of essential oils can stimulate your sense of smell, activating your brain’s limbic system, the part of your mind responsible for regulating your emotions, memories, motivation, and ability to learn. 

Scientists wanted to determine if there were even more powerful wellness benefits when essential oil therapy and negative ionization were combined. Here’s what they discovered. When they diffused the essential oil of Eucalyptus into an environment packed with negative ions, they discovered that the bacteria in the air was being destroyed at a faster rate than using just diffused Eucalyptus essential oil or just negative ionization alone. By the end of the study, they concluded that “the antibacterial effect of the essential oil vapours can be significantly enhanced by the addition of negative air ions.” What are the most beneficial essential oils?

The best essential oils are the ones you naturally gravitate to, or options that are naturally full of the treatment properties you need. Take Eucalyptus for example. According to WebMD, “People use eucalyptus for many conditions including asthma and bronchitis.” It works because Eucalyptus leaf contains chemicals that fight bacteria, as well as help decrease pain, inflammation, and even asthma. But as powerful as Eucalyptus is, there are hundreds of other oils and blends that offer a variety of benefits to make you feel more youthful. 

Would you believe the smell of pink grapefruit may be one of the most powerful when it comes to feeling younger? Citrus smells contribute to less stress, feeling happier, and when study participants looked at pictures of people after smelling pink grapefruit, they thought they were three years younger! Now that’s something to smile about. 

Now that you know the power of aromatherapy, especially combined with negative ionization, you have a better understanding of the way RIA combines the two powerful pathogen-fighting therapies to create what we call Aromafication™.

And there’s never been a more personal way to create your own breathing space. Think of it like this: Your personal air. Your personalized scent. RIA uses Aromafication™ to boost the wellness benefits with an experience that’s entirely yours. By simply adding 2-3 drops of high-quality essential oil to the RIA, the therapeutic scent will be diffused through your purified air zone as you go about your day, allowing your respiratory system to absorb it gently and naturally, helping you look and feel younger, while warding off colds, flu, and other viruses, depending on the oil or blend you choose.  

Think of the possibilities! Now you can enjoy the therapeutic benefits of essential oils and the wellness-boosting benefits of negative ionization anywhere you choose, with any type of scent you want. Furthermore, research indicates that breathing in the aroma of essential oils can stimulate your sense of smell and activate your brain’s limbic system, the part of your mind responsible for regulating your emotions, memories, motivation, and ability to learn. But negative ionization and Aromafication™ aren’t the only layers of protection RIA delivers. 

The epitome of wearable wellness technology, RIA is the ONLY device of its kind engineered with 2-layers of scientifically proven air purification technology and the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy. 

RIA’s primary layer of defense is HEPA filtration with activated carbon. Originally developed by the U.S. Department of Energy, the DOE created the High, Efficiency, Particulate, Air (HEPA) filter to replace gas masks for scientists working with atomic energy in clean rooms. The HEPA standard traps very small particles, many of which are invisible to the human eye and harmful to your health. Regarded as the real workhorse of any air purification device, HEPA is scientifically proven to offer one of the strongest layers of protection available, able to readily conquer 99+% of air-GEN (pathoGEN, allerGEN, contaGEN) attacks from reaching your lungs. When it comes to minimizing airborne pollutants, irritants, and the gruesome GENS, HEPA filtration remains the recommended standard. 

Between the COVID-19 pandemic panic, the approaching cold and flu season, year-round allergies, indoor toxins, and foul odors, RIA is a wearable personal air purification, go-anywhere, device that acts as a critical layer of personal protection to improve indoor air quality before it reaches the nose and mouth. 

The ability to create a clean air safety zone (with or without a mask) couldn’t come at a better time. 

Independently third-party tested and verified, RIA strikes an ideal balance between powerful technology and comfort. The unit is adjustable, ergonomic, lightweight, whisper-quiet, USB-rechargeable and TSA-approved, so it’s travel ready. Just treat it like any other electronic device when you walk through airport security.
