How big is the room that you would like to place your diffuser in?
High-quality aromatherapy diffusers should be able to disperse your favorite oil throughout so that you feel the effects on a continuous basis. If you are using your aromatherapy diffuser at night, for instance, you want to make sure it’s big enough to fill your bedroom on a continuous basis for several hours.
What’s the best material for an aromatherapy diffuser?
There are an array of wonderful diffusers out there and the lightest and most natural materials are glass and wood. Diffusers made with natural materials such as glass make good choices because they not only look elegant in any setting, they’re very easy to keep clean. Glass aroma diffusers make beautiful decorations and match any room. The material is non-porous, which means it’s easy to clean and won’t contaminate your oil.
How long will it last?
You’ll want to also ensure that aromatherapy diffuser doesn’t have to be refilled too often in order to get the maximum benefits. Many have control settings which allow you to adjust the amount of oil being dispersed.
Diffuser or nebulizer - which is better?
The difference between a diffuser and nebulizer is the way that the oil comes into the air. Where a diffuser evaporates water to disperse oil, a nebulizer gets the oil into a different state that is like a gas.

What’s the overall size and weight of the diffuser?
You probably want to be able to move these from room to room, so getting a diffuser on the small, light size is typically the best way to go. Just make sure the reservoir is large enough to hold the amount of oil that you wish to disperse. Also, consider that larger diffusers will tend to be noisier
Which type of diffusers work best: ultrasonic, heat or evaporative?
We recommend cold air diffusers because they do the best job of preserving the natural integrity as the oil. Anything that changes an oil’s temperature could lessen its strength. Consider adding a beautiful wood and glass aroma diffuser to your home today.
