If you’re trying to incorporate an essential oil diffuser in your life, you’ve arrived at the right post. Diffusing essential oils is a great way to perfume your house without synthetic fragrances, and it can also enhance your mood or even help clean your apartment from airborne germs. I recently received a sample of an Organic Aromas Essential Oil Diffuser to test, and I wanted to share my experience as this is really the Rolls-Royce when it comes to diffusing essential oils.
Let me start by saying that not all diffusers are created equal. The vast majority are made out of plastic and work by heating up a mixture of water and essential oils into a mist. Although there’s technically nothing wrong with that, if you’re an essential oil freak like me you might want to consider nebulization as an alternative. Plus, if you’re trying to reduce your exposure to plastic, it makes sense to look into alternatives that don’t heat it up and spread those particles in the air. Just sayin’.
Organic Aromas Elegance Diffuser: My Experience
Let’s get one thing straight: The Organic Aromas diffusers are beautiful and work well with any decor. Although I’ve used plastic diffusers for a while as an alternative to toxic-laden synthetic scented candles, to me they looked a bit off and never integrated fully with my decor style. I personally chose the Elegance model because it reminds me of an apothecary jar and it matched perfectly my vintage-ish taste. And oh boy, how happy I’m with that decision!
Aside from being a beautiful piece of art on its own, the Elegance diffuser incorporates different led light settings that can be regulated with the touch of a button. Extremely silent, it is also eco-friendly: It consumes little energy, and shuts off automatically after two hours. Also, the nebulization principle on which it rests requires just a few drops of essential oils to saturate the air quickly. Under ideal conditions it can perfume a room of up to 800 sq ft, and it certainly is more than enough to cleanse my teeny teensy apartment in less than 15 minutes.
Plus, the price is astonishingly low compared to other similar brands: The Organic Aromas Elegance Diffuser retails for just $95 (the shipping is free as Organic Aromas has warehouses in the UK, Canada, and USA.) You might think it’s an expensive piece of equipment, but it’s a cost you’d amortize quickly if you are the type of person who buys good-quality home candles.
Diffusing Essential Oils: How Does Nebulization Work?
Organic Aromas sells beautifully handcrafted essential oil diffusers that are made out of hand carved wood and pyrex glass. They use no water and no heat, as they nebulize the essential oils using the Bernoullis principle. And what is nebulization, you might ask? It’s the dispersion of atomized micro-particles of essential oils using the physical properties of vacuum. In lay terms, this means that this ingenious device disperses teensy droplets of your essential oils without using water or heat. That way you’ll reap the benefits of the plant distillates as nature intended them to be.
Why nebulization? Well, to start with, it doesn’t heat up your precious essential oils. That avoids disruptions in the composition of your oils, that can lose some of their properties or even oxidize if exposed to high temperatures. Second, it keeps your apartment air dry as you don’t need a mist to disperse the oils. And third, nebulization allows you to breathe pure, undiluted essential oils.
If you want to learn more about the nebulization process, visit the Organic Aromas website. To me, choosing nebulization as the best dispersion method is a no-brainer.
Organic Aromas Essential Oil Blends: A World of Scents
Aside from creating jaw-dropping diffusers, Organic Aromas has its own line of custom blends of essential oils. I was able to test the Elements Premium Essential Oils Collection ($110), which includes 10 different blends created from over 60 different essential oils to awaken and inspire your senses.
The delicate packaging features two separate chambers: An “Inspire” portion with robust, woody, earthy and fresh compositions, and an “Awaken” side, that contains sweet, floral, fruity and mind blends of essential oils.
Although these oils don’t bear the organic seals, the blends are made from natural essential oils. I’m very sensitive to synthetic scents, and I haven’t picked up a single note that has given me an allergic reaction. To be honest, these blends are quite surprising and off the beaten path—you won’t find the usual hippy-yuppy mad blends, but actual carefully curated compositions. My personal favorite is Butterflies’ Breath, as its floral scent brings back a lot of good memories. Plus, a little bit goes a long way: I’ve been using it for three months and I still have three-quarters of the bottle left.
The Inspire box collection contains the following blends:
Pacific Northwest – Pine, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Cypress, Juniper
Ocean Breeze – Peppermint, Lemon, Lime, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Coriander
Formosa – Hinoki, Tea Tree, Amyris, Rosemary, Tangerine, Aloeswood
Meditation – Benzoin, Dill Seed, Clover, Rosewood, Bergamot, Myrtle, Amyris, Sweet Fennel
