Why You Shouldn’t Use a Water Bubbler to Ozonate Oils

When using liquids, keep in mind that there are two different types of glass containers to ozonate oils and to ozonate water. They can not be used interchangeably.

Water ozone bubblers typically come with a stone at the end of the stem.

The stone is a porous material made of ceramic. It allows for the creation of small bubbles in the water. This is supposed to speed up the process of ozonation and allows for a better and faster ozone saturation.

A water bubbler with a stone should not be used for oils since it creates a lot of foam.

The foam then gets into the tubing that connects with the bubbler and clogs it up.

This is what happens when oil is ozonated with a water stone: It creates a lot of foam. 

To ozonate oils you need an oil bubbler.

An oil bubbler comes with several bigger holes at the end of the glass stem.

The holes create single larger gas bubbles instead of foam.

Alternatively, you can also use a gas washing bottle with an open stem to ozonate oils. This will also avoid foam formation.

A drawback of gas washing bottles is that they often require different sized silicone tubings. The inlets and outlets also tend to break when too much pressure is exerted to push the tubing over them. 

Promolife's basic oil bubbler offers a solution to this:

So, to ozonate oils you can either use an oil bubbler, a gas washing bottle or the basic oil bubbler, but never a stone.

In summary, when ozonating water you can use many different solutions: a water bubbler, an oil bubbler, a gas washing bottle, you can simply put the ozone output hose into a glass or you can use a separate water stone attached to the stone.

When ozonating oils you have more limited options. You can only use an oil bubbler, a gas washing bottle or a silicone tubing submerged into the oil. But never a stone. 

Also, always remember to use a trap to prevent back-flowing liquids. 


A trap between the ozone generator and the container holding the liquid prevents liquids from flowing back into the ozone machine.

    I too am carnivore. QUESTION Can I Ozonate beef tallow Rather than using industrialized seed oils?

    I am battling sinus infections due to mold exposure. I’ve read about how helpful breathing ozonated oil can be and want to try it. I currently have the Therassage ozone bubbler that I use for baths and veggies. Is this a good option for nasal insulfation if I bought the proper attachments or should I invest in something better? It seems every ozone machine you recommend requires an oxygen tank so I’m not sure what the difference is. Thank you so much for any info you are able to provide.

      Hi Antoinette,

      yes, if you want to do nasal insufflations with ozone you should get an ozone generator that runs on oxygen, not air.

      Alternatively, you can also look into nebulization with hydrogen peroxide. For this you just need 3% peroxide from the pharmacy or amazon and a $30 nebulizer.
