Nowadays, people are more than aware to know the importance of tranquility with aromatherapy and how essential oil can be used for a regular therapy to quiet the mind, centering the energy and keeping the focus on the right track, especially since we’re living in a fast-paced, gadget-infested world.
Long ago when people start from using oils extracted from flowers and herbs before moving onto the creation of spas, now with have essential oil diffusers for some quick relaxing routine that are much more personal – because you can use it anywhere and customize a blend of essential oil according to your personal preference.
Plus, these essential oil diffusers are one of the most effective and convenient products to use to enjoy a blend of essential oils in the comfort of your home. The diffuser works by dispersing the aromatic elements from the oil into the room.
Of course, searching for the right essential oil diffusers on the internet and you’re bombarded with lots of products that you don’t know where to start and decide. After all, you wouldn’t want to spend something that you don’t need or worse that gets broken after a couple of months of use.
A good essential oil diffuser should have enough power to diffuse the oil into the room that you want to use adequately (too much diffusing will make the room smell cloying and wasting the oil), have strong material to withstand the corrosive nature of certain essential oil (if not, over time the product will start to crack) as well any useful features that can be important for your needs.
Without further ado, here is a selection of essential oil diffusers that you can look through to decide which model is perfect for your needs (and worth every penny).
1. VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser, 300ml Cool Mist Humidifier Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser
Immerse yourself with an essential oil diffuser from VicTsing that are sure to fill up the room with pleasant aromas to soothe the mind, this particular model is a humidifier-diffuser combo and able to work in continuous stream up to 10 hours and you can turn it off with a timer setting included at the diffuser (set it before starting the operation). You can also use it as a humidifier to add extra moisture into the room.
All you need to do is to add a couple of drops of essential oil blends and fill up with 300ml of water, followed up with a timer setting (1 hour, 3 hours, 6 hours and continuous) and you can choose either strong or standard mist mode. This model can cover impressively up to 82 sq ft of space; even if used in more small space, the aroma it gives is still the same without cloying.
Additionally, this diffuser also comes with a waterless auto-function after five seconds; a major point if you need to leave the diffuser for a few hours and unable to check the water level as frequently as you should.
We love the product design of VicTsing right here and it comes with three woodgrain finishes that give a spa-vibe, as well as seven soothing LED colors that you can choose to add some visual ambiance from the diffuser. This model certainly works as it supposed to be while serves as a decorating piece.
Backed with a one-year warranty, and 45-days money-back guarantee.
2. doTERRA Petal Diffuser
One of the top essential oil diffusers, dōTERRA Petal Diffuser is definitely something to behold – a simple looking model that is strong at the base that we expect it will last for a long time. Couple with diffusion the model also gives a soft white light that exudes soft ambiance for the whole room. In just a few moments the diffuser fills up the room with the pleasing aroma from the essential oil blend. Impressively, Petal diffuser is rather quiet with minor ambient white noise that is not noticeable.
Focusing on the product design, it’s rather solid at the bottom and the overall shape increases the chances that it’s less likely to tip over so easily.
The model only served by two buttons; one to turn on/off the light while the other is to turn on/off for the diffuser.
The minor bummer is the model only gives to a white light, which can be a turn off if you prefer a warm white instead. In any case, turning off the light setting and using other warm white light source is the solution if you still lean on the superb diffusing mechanism from this model. But the feature that really stands out is this model turns off in just four hours for its maximum run time – a lot less compared to other diffuser models.
3. InnoGear 500ml Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser Cool Mist Humidifier
For a small and understated diffuser, InnoGear impressed us with its simple design and yet powerful enough that you simply can’t go wrong with it. And it’s a diffuser-humidifier combo as well!
Portability is a big point with this diffuser – you can simply put it anywhere you want, fill it up and turn the diffuser on and ready to get relaxed. The diffuser can run continuously in eight hours with high mist mode and up to 16 hours in low mist mode that we think it’s a good length of time to use.
Couple with seven different mood lights that you can use for visual sense (as well as serving as a nightlight for the kids) either for a single light or in a color-cycle mode and yes, you can also opt to turn off the light if you need it. And what we love the most is this particular model work in such low ambient noise that it’s a perfect model to use in children’s bedroom or even at your office desk. Honestly, for such big capacity at 500ml, this diffuser can certainly last at least two days from a full tank.
For a safety feature, this model comes with an automatic waterless shut-off.
We also noticed that compared with other diffusers in this review, the plume vapor combing from Innogear is rather tall that it’s a bit noticeable – not an issue for us, but rather an explanation how the scent can cover wide space of the room in a rather short time.
4. QUOOZ Lull Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser, High Capacity Diffuser with Auto Shut- Off
QUOOZ Lull Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser certainly catches our eye with its sleek-design (inspired to look like a flower just before it blooms) and it works powerfully as well. Features include up to 10 hours of continuous mist, soothing ambiance light that you can set the brightness level and to mimic rhythmic breathing, as well as a safety feature that automatically turns off when it’s done.
Using ultrasonic aromatherapy tech that works more effective than using regular water.
The downside is this diffuser holds up at 200 ml – a far less compared with other models, such as InnoGear up to 500ml per full tank. Still, the diffuser can last up 10 hours and it says a lot in terms of effectiveness – you need less for it to do more and it gives you a steady stream. Another bummer is the base is not as solid as it expected to be, which can be worrying with the narrow spout at the risk of breaking if the product tipped over.
5. Pure Enrichment PureSpa Deluxe Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser
PureSpa Deluxe from Pure Enrichment offers a simple essential oil diffuser that you can use every time you need some relaxation with the help of soothing ambiance and essential oil. Pretty much, that’s it. The understated model is probably what you’re looking for if you want something hassle-free with no additional designs that put the diffuser at risk.
And yes, this is a diffuser-humidifier-ionizer combo that you can switch the mode to add moisture into the room or to release negative ions into the room to neutralize harmful elements as well.
Despite the super small capacity of 120ml at a full tank, this diffuser can run impressively up to 10 hours (which explains a lot in terms of effectiveness) and it comes from the ultrasonic tech used in this diffuser. Even running at a couple of hours can leave the room smell pleasantly that you don’t really need to have it run at 10 hours at every use. Plus, there’s an automatic shut off after the tank runs dry so you don’t have to get up and check regularly.
This model also comes with a color-changing light that gives a visual appeal for relaxation, just the downside is the light is set to color-changing mode and there’s none for you to set it to a single color to choose – which a big flaw considering how simple to integrate the program into the LED
Covered with a two-year warranty.
6. ZAQ Allay Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser LiteMist Ultrasonic Aromatherapy With Ionizer
ZAQ Allay Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser LiteMist also uses the ultrasonic technology to release essential oil scents into the room and gives a soft LED lights that you can choose.
While we’re happy with the ultrasonic tech it uses that even with 80ml capacity it can run for longer compared to other non-ultrasonic diffusers, sadly it can’t. ZAQ Allay Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser LiteMist runs at a mere four hours at the maximum which are a big bummer for anyone looking for a diffuser that can run longer than that.
Additionally, we noticed that while in use, there’s a mist fell close to the product, indicating that the diffuser didn’t break the water particle small enough to float throughout the room. Plus, using the product for a few days will leave the diffuser jam that you need to clean the oil buildup at the base, which happens more frequently, compared to other models in this review.
Still, most users agreed that ZAQ Allay Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser LiteMist is made to last, and a couple of users have been using this model for two years now.
For a simple, hassle-free diffuser that you need it to work for a few hours, ZAQ Allay Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser LiteMist is what you’re looking for.
