We love essential oils. We use them quite often. In the mornings I love to diffuse “Wake Up Buttercup”, a citrus blend that helps us wake up in the mornings. I love my “Viva Naturals Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser” it is an easy and effective way to diffuse my favourite oils at home and at the campground.
The “Viva Naturals Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser” is cool mist diffuser that uses vibrations to vaporize the essential oils and water into a fine mist and then disperses them into the air without using heat. The fact that it doesn’t use heat means that the therapeutic properties of the essential oils aren’t destroyed.
The unit itself is attractive and fits into any decor. I have the Ash-grey wood grain look and it fits in just as well at home as it does the camper. It is easy to use with only two buttons. It turns on with a click of a button. You can cycle through the different settings 1, 3 and 6 hours. You can also cycle through the 7 different colours of lights. Only the small band on the diffuser lights up with a soft glow.
The instructions state that the diffuser will also automatically turn off when it runs out of water and oil. I haven’t had the opportunity to run ours long enough to test this feature out. Even with only 100ml of water in it, the diffuser runs for an extended period of time.
To fill the diffuser you simply lift the lid off and fill it up with up to 400ml of water and a few drops of your favourite oil. The instructions state to use I use 2-3 drops of essential oil per 100mls of water. I actually use a little less than the recommended amount because I found I was getting headaches. It’s easy to clean, simply pour out any extra water and wipe the container dry.
There are a couple cons to the diffuser. I would have liked for the lid to lock on, it simply lifts on and off and my kids can’t resist peaking inside! I also find that without a seal on the lid, any time I move it I spill a little of the water out. If you are setting it on a nice piece of furniture I would recommend putting a little placemat underneath to catch any spillage.
The diffuser doesn’t come with any Essential Oil samples as I expected. This doesn’t bother me as I have my favourite brand that I use.
I love that it’s a cool mist. While we are out at the campground, the kids can’t resist putting their fingers in the mist. The “Viva Naturals Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser” is an easy way to diffuse your favourite oils at home.
