I recently purchased an essential oil diffuser. I noticed a few of my friends have it in their homes and at first, I just thought it looked really cool as it silently sits on its corner and blowing some steam off.
None of my friends have the same kind diffuser. All are different, including my own that I had just bought recently.
Nonetheless, I’m quite happy with what I got and it is called ArtNaturals Aromatherapy Essential Oil and Diffuser Gift Set. The one that I purchased was the 150mL tank. There is another size that goes up to 400mL, but the 150mL tank is sufficient for my apartment.
Why get one?
So, you might actually ask yourself, why get one? What benefits will I get if I got myself a diffuser? Is it worth it to have one?
Having an oil diffuser at home sets you up in benefiting from the effects of aromatherapy treatment.
“Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.” (Healthline.com)
Not only does it improve your holistic health, it also freshens the surrounding air. This is perfect for small spaces or small rooms. This compact diffuser is very easy to move around rooms according to your preference.
How it Works
The ArtNaturals Essential Oil Diffuser is classified under “Ultrasonic Diffusers”–this just means that the diffuser operates with water, while other types do not.
This type of diffuser generates water vapor that lets the essential oil droplets be carried out into the air by steam, which then adds moisture to the space outside and the essential oil aroma gets dispersed to the open air.
You will almost immediately smell the aroma from the diffuser, and eventually, benefit from its effects such as promoting relaxation and stress relief.
Aromatherapy mostly works through the sense of smell, and also through skin absorption. The essential oils mixed with the vapor from a diffuser your body lotion/cream help promote these beneficial effects.
The ArtNaturals Aromatherapy Essential Oil and Diffuser Gift Set comes with a 150mL (400mL also available) tank diffuser, with auto shut-off presets for 1-hour or 3-hours, and 7-color LED Lights, and their chosen top 8 essential oils.
The box it came with also came with instructions and other uses and benefits of the essential oils. You can mix with your favorite cream/lotion, add a few drops to a hot bath, or mix with water and put in a spray bottle for a body mist. It also has a more detailed description of each essential oils’ known effects.
The Top 8 Essential Oils that came with the set are:
- Frankincense (To Soothe)
- Sweet Orange (To Motivate)
- Lemongrass (To Purify)
- Tea Tree (To Wellness)
- Peppermint (To Spa Ambiance)
- Rosemary (To Focus)
- Eucalyptus (To Energize)
- Lavender (To Calm)
I usually mix and match the oils depending on what mood I want to be in. Right now, my mixture is:
2 drops of Eucalyptus to energize me to write,
2 drops of Sweet Orange to motivate me and come up with new ideas, and;
2 drops of Rosemary to focus and not get distracted.
When I want to relax and to unwind, my usual mixture is:
2 drops of Peppermint to create that spa ambiance,
2 drops of Lavender to calm my mind and my body down, and;
2 drops of Tea Tree for its wellness benefits.
Sometimes I replace Tea Tree for Frankincense because it is known to provide mind comfort and emotional balance.
How to set it up
One might ask, how hard is it to set up?
To be honest, the hardest part about this product is choosing which mixtures to put in the diffuser.
Setting up the diffuser itself….easy-peasy!
1. Take out of the box and set location for the diffuser.
2. Add water to the “max” level.
3. Add 5-7 drops of essential oil in the tank (I usually do 6 — 2 drops of 3 kinds of essential oils). Be careful with adding more drops than recommended because strong aroma could cause headaches and discomfort to some people.
4. Push button to turn it on or set to an auto-shut off timer. The 3-hour shut-off usually uses up about half of the water of the 150mL tank.
5. Optional — Turn on the LED lights for added ambiance.
That’s pretty much it. It doesn’t get any simpler than that with the ArtNaturals Essential Oil Diffuser.
- Light and portable
- Easy and simple to use
- LED lights for added ambiance
- Auto-shutoff timers
- Came with the Top 8 Essential Oils
- Good for small apartments/rooms/spaces
- Uses up half of the water from the 150mL tank after 3-hours
- Does NOT come with a remote
- Not good for large rooms/spaces
Overall, I am happy with my purchase and I recommend it to anyone looking for an oil diffuser for their apartment or room. Be advised though that you may want something with a larger tank if you have a larger room to use.
I think the ArtNaturals chosen top 8 essential oils were great choices. I can definitely feel its effects when I use them.
I wanted to purchase a diffuser because of its known effects to purify/freshen your room, but I was surprised to find out the pleasant aromatics the diffuser produces with the essential oils. I think that every household would benefit from one.
