I was lost in a sea of confusion like a man lost at sea with no land in sight.
Having just taken up aromatherapy, I was at a loss when my therapist suggested I try out the healing technique at home to help with my migraine headaches.
He told me I needed to find a good essential diffuser, but after searching online, I found that there were thousands – which should I choose, which was the best? Which would give me the full benefits of the essential oils? These were the questions that rolled through my mind every time I did a search.
To make a long story short, after some extensive research, the reading of reviews and customer comments I decided to buy the essential oil diffuser from Now foods was popular and more importantly, was made by a company that prepared excellent food products.
The small size and limited features, however, made me wonder whether I should have chosen something in a higher price bracket.
As my therapist’s analysis of the migraine problem will tell you, the unit has worked remarkably well.
Not only has it managed to produce adequate quantities of aromatic mist, it also managed to provide me with a soothing visual ambience courtesy of the changeable LED lighting provided inside the product.
However, an affordable product is bound to have some shortcomings as well, and I shall study these along with the benefits in the detailed review below.
Compared to older essential oil diffusers, the unit is made up of BPA-free materials and this ensures that the mist that is produced is not laced with any harmful or otherwise undesirable chemicals leaking from the product’s walls into the mist.
Heat-less mist production
Essential oils require that the temperature at which they are prepared be maintained when they are evaporated. Otherwise their aromatic properties are destroyed and harmful compounds may be created in their stead. Thankfully, the unit uses ultrasonic technology in place of heat to produce the required amount of mist.
Doesn’t cause issues despite rigorous use
Due to my health conditions, I used the unit often and for long periods of time. Even then, the unit managed to provide excellent service, and this did not change when I changed oils frequently. Indeed, I would believe that it is ideal for year-round use.
Soothing LED lighting
While not a vital necessity, it is good to see that the product can produce LED lights in different colors and alternate them to produce a soothing effect. Alternatively, a single light can be made to change intensity gradually at different intervals, thus helping one perform meditation, etc.
A few points of concern
One of the foremost issues with this unit is that it can only spread mist in a limited area, and that too, in an area that has a geometrical shape. Large halls or irregular areas are not ideal for using this product.
This is however not a major issue because it is meant for domestic use and large spaces are generally not anticipated in the average home.
Secondly, the unit does not have an in-built battery and this makes it dependent on power points, thus reducing the possibility of its use in area with limited supply of electricity.
Whereas the average essential oil diffuser tends to focus solely on efficiency and ability to produce maximum amount of mist, this unit is capable of providing a risk-free aromatic environment in association with some extremely soothing and highly customizable LED lighting al-oil-aromatheoptions.
