It is a pretty large 500ml diffuser with an automatic shut off. This helps prevent overheating when water runs out.

The lid on these diffusers doesn’t snap onto the base, making it a good choice if you have trouble gripping or twisting.

It’s equipped with multiple mist nebulizers that are able to spread the scent of the oil, as well as the moisture, throughout the room.

Even though it has a bright LED light option available in many colors, you can actually display that color in a “dimmer” mode. For those who often find diffuser lights to be too bright, this is a great modification.

Because it uses some nebulizer modes, it releases mists which stay suspended in the air for longer periods for maximum inhalation.

You’ll enjoy the multiple nebulizer modes and the built-in safety auto-switch that keeps the diffuser from overheating once it runs out of water.

When we pulled this diffuser out of the box for the first time, we were surprised at how lightweight it is. Yet when we turned it on, it still produced a powerful and steady stream of mist.

Remarkably, the diffuser can disintegrate water molecules using the 2.4MHz vibrating plate and spread an almost strong or weak mist up to 270 sq. feet while preserving a steady level of humidity.

It comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee so you love it, or else… A 6-month money back guarantee is in place and a full year of warranty.
- Aroma Talking
For the water tank, you can clean it effortlessly when you want to change the smell of your essential oil. It will improve the air and living environment of yours; the problems of having bad smell is over now once you have this best product.
Our favorite thing about this product is the design. The fact that the light covers the entire top makes it a really attractive diffuser to have in your home, and the fact that you can choose which color light you have on can really help set the mood and ambiance in your home for the evening.
- My Essential Remedies
It is extremely quiet and comes with beautiful 7 different LED colours. It has continuous and three timers, you can choose to leave the diffuser ON or control the timer to 60, 120 or 180 minutes.

The design of this diffuser isn’t our favorite: it’s larger and flatter than our pick, taking up more space and standing out a little more (and not in a good way).

The biggest issue with this model is the confusing instructions. Many of the advertised features such as dimming the light are not intuitive or well-explained in the directions. This can leave customers feeling like the product is not true to form.

If you have children or pets, you’ll want to place the diffuser on a surface that’s high off the ground. That will prevent your child or pet from knocking over the diffuser and getting water and oil everywhere.

We don’t like the fact that this product is so big. If you have smaller rooms in your house that you wanted to diffuse scents into, then this product probably isn’t suitable.

An Overview On Humidifiers

Depending on where you live or how much heat you use in the winter season, you may find that the air in your home is a bit dry. This dryness may be the cause of your chapped lips, dry throat or sinus irritations. Fortunately, you can purchase a humidifier to use in the home that will put the much-needed moisture back into the air.

Before you select a humidifier, there are a few things you’ll want to consider.

Start off measuring the room in which you’d like to use the humidifier. Most units will list the size room they service (often in square feet) on the outside of the product packaging. In some cases, the box may say small, medium or large rooms.

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

“A good rule of thumb is to get a ‘small room’ humidifier for spaces under 300 square feet, a ‘medium room’ humidifier for 400-500 square feet, and the ‘large room’ humidifier for rooms over 500 square feet,” says our resident home improvement expert Vicki Liston. “You’ll need to adjust to a higher sized model if your ceilings are above 9 feet or if the room you are using it in isn’t well insulated.”

Next, you’ll need to determine the humidifier’s tank size. The larger the tank, the longer the unit will run before it needs to be refilled. For example, the URPOWER Oil Diffuser & Cool Mist Humidifier has a 100 ml tank that runs just 6 hours, while the Pure Enrichment Cool Mist Humidifier has a 1.5 L tank that runs 16 hours. The first unit is more suitable for an office setting, while the second is best for continuous home use.

Decide whether you’d like a humidifier that also doubles as an oil diffuser, such as the Asakuki Essential Oil Diffuser. This way, you could add a few drops of lavender essential oil for its ability to calm or orange essential oil for a boost in energy. Perhaps you’d simply like to add your favorite essential oil to create a pleasant aroma to the room.

Check the humidifier you’re interested in to see if it has multiple settings. Most units will give you the option of running the mist in spurts (or on low) or continuously (or on high). Some also feature timers that will shut the unit off after 1 hour, 3 hours, 6 hours or once the water reservoir is empty.

Consider any extra benefits the humidifier has to offer. For example, the VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser & Cool Mist Humidifier has seven different light colors, so you can choose one that matches the decor in the room you’re using it in. Even better, once you select the color you’d like, you can put it on dim or bright.

DYWM Fun Fact

Raymond Banks of Walton Labs Inc. was the first company to apply for a patent for a humidifier. While the application was submitted in 1962, it wasn’t granted until 1964. It wasn’t long before Americans were able to buy humidifiers to use in their own homes. Today, a wide variety of humidifiers are readily available for purchase, many of which also incorporate the use of essential oils for additional health benefits.

Did you know that approximately 75% of homeowners are unhappy with the air quality in their homes during the cooler months of the year? They believe the low humidity is the cause of their dry skin, nose bleeds and sore throats. It makes sense then, that $574.2 million in humidifiers were sold between the years of 2010 and 2018.

Here’s another interesting fact: When you increase the humidity in your home by 10%, it actually makes the air feel one degree warmer. During the cold winter months, every degree helps.

The increase in humidity also has a multitude of health benefits. In addition to hydrating the skin, high humidity levels also have the ability to break up the particles that make up the flu virus. So using your humidifier during flu season is another way to take preventative measures to protect your family from this unpleasant illness.

The Humidifier Buying Guide

  • You can measure the amount of humidity in your home with a hydrometer. Your goal is to keep humidity levels between 40 and 50%.
  • Never use tap water to fill your humidifier. “Using distilled or purified water instead of tap water will substantially cut down on the amount of mineral deposits left behind,” says home improvement maven Liston.
  • Check the type of material that the humidifier’s water reservoir is made out of. You want it to be BPA-free, so that no toxins are released into the water and then into the air that you breathe.
  • Mold and bacteria can grow inside a humidifier, which is why it is so important that you clean the device regularly. Since humidifiers are not dishwasher safe, you’ll need to clean them by hand. Mix water and white distilled vinegar together inside the humidifier’s water tank. Run the unit for a few minutes and then empty the water reservoir. Wipe down the inside of the tank with either a cotton ball or swab that has been soaked in vinegar. Rinse the tank with water afterward to make sure you remove all traces of vinegar. You can set the unit aside to air dry or wipe it down with a lint-free cloth.
  • Not all units run quietly. However, a little white noise may actually help you focus while working or sleep a little more soundly at bedtime.
  • Look for a product warranty or a money-back guarantee. You want to be protected against defective or damaged merchandise.
  • When reviewing humidifier prices, you’ll need to take into consideration the number or features the unit comes with, as well as how long of a running time it has. The URPOWER Oil Diffuser & Cool Mist Humidifier is on the lower end, as it is more basic and has a short running time. The VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser & Cool Mist Humidifier and the Asakuki Essential Oil Diffuser are slightly more, thanks to longer running times and extra settings. You’ll find the Pure Enrichment Cool Mist Humidifier at the top of the range, as it has the power to run for as long as 16 hours.
