Little Fox recommendation for a Nebulizing Aromatic Diffuser
I have been using essential oils for over 20 years and I have tried a variety of nebulizing diffusers of all shapes, sizes and material. Since starting Little Fox Apothecary, I have researched the scientific approach and methods of how these diffusers actually work and I learned a lot.
With this knowledge my recommendation is to use glass and air pressure style air diffusers. (no plastic, no water, no heat).
1. Essential oils corrode plastic (hence plastic can seep into the water in your device).
2. Adding pure essential oils in water drastically distorts their therapeutic properties as will any heat.
There are thousands of different air diffusers on the market, in your local drug store, at discount home décor stores, etc. Buyer beware is my best advice. The most common issue is with the air pump or heater as the majority of them break within the first 30-60 days due to cheap quality. There is usually no return or refund. Now you have to chuck a big piece of plastic into the landfill.
There is not a lot on the market, but glass diffusers seemed the way to go. I tried three different companies and researched their backgrounds, commitment to quality and also their standards, best practices and overall passion for what they do. I took into account, functionality, packaging, repair and warranty offers, customer support, how the diffuser handles large rooms, how quiet the air pump is and their overall environmental impact. Based on performance, quality, customer service, and the above mentioned, OrganicAromas is my number one choice and recommendation.
Their website is excellent and provides very detailed information on how the diffusers work, (using the Bernoullis Principle), how they are constructed, what materials they use and everything you need to know about how to use them, clean and maintain them and lots more.
They are made using hand blown glass and wood. The diffusers have a small footprint, are beautiful décor pieces, and have changing LED lights (if that’s not your thing you can turn it off). They use a low voltage output and thus very little energy.
