In my past life (before I was a mom), I worked in marketing for one of the top essential oil companies in the world. After years of working industry, I’d consider myself somewhat of an essential oil and diffuser expert.
You’d think you could buy any oil and diffuser and receive the same benefits as the next, but that’s not the case. Each diffuser has different features. Some are worth it, some are pointless, and some are just plain fun.
I recently tried out a few different diffusers from Amazon, and I have the full scoop for you. I am pleased to report that they’re each high quality and worth purchasing, but you may prefer one over the other based on their features.
Pure Spa Essential Oil Diffuser
I’ve seen this diffuser in multiple spas, so I’ve been curious as to how well it works. The good news is, it is high-quality and features I love the sleek, modern design of it. It also has some really great features that are an added bonus.
The first feature I love about the Pure Spa Essential Oil Diffuser is that you can change the color of the LED light. Your options are green, purple, red, and blue, so you can switch it up depending on your mood. I personally like to diffuse it in different colors on the weekend for game day. Though my husband and I cheer for competing teams that happen to be Red and Blue, so it’s always a battle.
The other thing I love about the Pure Spa Essential Oil Diffuser is that it also adds moisture to the air. Many people assume that all diffusers do this, but this isn’t the case. Some purely produce an aroma and aren’t powerful enough to add moisture.
Last, but not least, is the fact that this diffuser comes with the option of an XL tank. The XL tank is the model I tried, and I think it is worth the extra money. An extra-large tank means fewer times you have to refill the diffuser, which is a huge plus, especially if you’re using the diffuser in a spa, etc.
Lotus Oil Diffuser
This diffuser definitely gets points for cuteness. It’s on the smaller side, but for some reason, anything mini always sucks me right in. Please tell me I’m not the only one who prefers mini Snickers over the standard size? Mini Reeses? Anyone?
As mentioned in the Lotus Oil Diffuser’s name, it’s designed like a lotus. It can double as a decorative piece, and people may not even know it’s a diffuser unless you have it turned on.
The Lotus Oil Diffuser may be small, but it’s mighty. The diffuser can run for up to 12 hours, which is longer than a lot of larger diffusers, can run for.
The Aroma Diffuser also resembles an art piece and would be a fun way to add some décor to your home while diffusing your favorite scents. That being said, this diffuser is fragile. If you have kids, I would recommend placing it in a high, safe place like a tall bookshelf.
The colors and design of the Aroma Diffuser are fun and somewhat cosmic. There are seven different light colors to choose from, so there are a lot of options. It’s fun to put on your nightstand when you’re going to bed while diffusing something calming like a combination of Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils.
The diffuser has a few different settings, ranging from one hour to five hours. This is nice because you can change the setting depending on how long you want it to run. I personally don’t like to keep the diffuser running all night, so I like this aspect of it.
