This aroma diffuser isn’t packaged in anything spectacular, just a plain brown cardboard box. Again, I was a little disappointed but it didn’t really bother me too much as I was more concerned about the diffuser itself.
The diffuser is shaped like a tagine; circular with a spout. It has a wooden design base and the spout is a frosted plastic. With this type of wooden base, the colour code for purchase is beige but is also available in white, black and brown which is a dark brown. With this simple and subtle design, it would fit right into any room in the home as well as workplaces such as salons etc. It is 12cm tall and 9cm in diameter, with a 41cm circumference.
The instruction manual is quite simple to follow with diagrams on how to use the diffuser, its functions, cleaning and maintenance guide and troubleshooting. You will find the plug connection socket at the back of the diffuser. The buttons are also at the back but are labelled; M for mist and L for lights.
Whats included in the box:
- 1 x Aroma Diffuser
- 1 x Measuring Cup
- 1 x Power Adapter
- 1 x Instruction Manual
The diffuser has two settings for mist, which are a continuous mode and an intermittent mode. If you press the M button once, it turns on intermittent mode. The intermittent mode is the timed mode that works for 3 minutes and then has a 1-minute interval. A second press of the M button turns on continuous mode and a third turns it off completely. With other diffusers you can set the amount of mist, however, this one doesn’t have that option. It is a set amount.
There are 7 colours in the LED lights. The lights shine through the frosted spout. You can’t have the lights switched on without the mist setting on. Once you have the diffuser mist on, the lights will be on continuous colour changing mode. You can press the L buttons multiple times to cycle through the individual colours.
The diffuser isn’t silent. It does give off a whirring sound but it isn’t very noticeable, especially if you have other things going on around the home.
The diffuser has a 100ml water tank. The tank is easily accessible by removing the out lid and spout and then you are able to remove the tank cover. Removing the tank cover is very simple as it has a small lip that it there for you to open it with. You can find the max fill line inside the tank as it says the max fill is to the top of the small block inside. Once the tank is filled you just replace the tank lid and then the outer lid. Putting the outer lid back into place is a little tricky as there are specific locks there for it to be secure. It just takes a little care and patience.
As of yet, I haven’t tried this with any essential oil as I don’t have any at home but it is something I am looking forward to trying. It suggests 3 to 5 drops of essential oil but I would say it is your preference as to how strong of an aroma you want.
The diffuser does require a little bit of maintenance. After using for a few times you have to clean the tank with citric acid and water. This is to prevent any mildew in the tank and clogging due to the essential oil. Maybe, if you don’t use any essential oils, a quick wipe over with a damp cloth and drying it would suffice. The instruction manual gives you the method of cleaning.
This is a pretty good diffuser and I do like it. I’m looking forward to getting more use out of it. I love that the design is so simple and doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. I am an asthmatic and I am hoping that this may help ease my symptoms. If you are also an asthmatic and want to try this with essential oils, maybe you could try bergamot essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, peppermint essential oil, lavender essential oil and Roman chamomile essential oil. After a bit of online research, these seem like the best essential oils to help people with asthma.
The diffuser is currently on sale at Amazon UK for £20.00, with a RRP of £29.99.
