How to choose your essential oil diffuser at the end of 2022?

To take full advantage of the benefits of essential oils, we advise you to invest in a diffuser that diffuses without significant heat (which causes oxidation of essential oils) and without water (water preventing the ionization of essential oils).

All the diffusers we offer will allow you a real "aromatic diffusion".

Our essential oil diffusers are divided into 6 categories. They each have their advantages and disadvantages. A tip, do not focus only on the aesthetic aspect. Remember to take a good look at the broadcasting technology used and the criteria that you think are important for your daily use.

Our advice

- If you are diffusing essential oils for their therapeutic effectiveness, and therefore want a diffusion of excellent "technical" quality, diffusion by nebulization or ultra-nebulization (dry propulsion) is essential.

- If you want both to benefit from the virtues of essential oils, but also to give a beautiful atmosphere of diffusion to your interior, it is better to turn to misting, the only technology allowing you to see the mist of diffusion. Very pretty and efficient. We are talking about mist diffusers or ultrasonic diffusers.

- You will also come across diffusers by soft heat, by ventilation or operating without electricity, which have the main advantage of being more accessible to purchase and nomadic for some.

In order to help you choose the diffuser best suited to your needs and your budget, we will explain the different existing models and their performance. Click on the desired category below :

DIFFUSERS BY NEBULIZATION (or microdiffusion)

Diffuseur par nébulisation Tsylia

Whatever its shape, color or even age, nebulization diffusers are all based on the same principle:

A pump that compresses air and glassware that is used to "burst" the particles of essential oils from which a light "mist" will come out of the neck of the glass. This “smoke” is the micro-diffused essential oil. The flow of essential oil and air are both greatly accelerated by what is called the venturi effect. This effect is produced by the shape of the two nozzles. The high speed of these 2 flows, as well as the angle at which they intersect, creates a very strong dispersion of the particles of essential oils which are therefore propelled into the atmosphere with high kinetics and very low weight. The ideal combination for a perfect diffusion.


Note : The shape of the glassware has no influence on the quality of the diffusion, your choice depends only on your taste.

The essential oil diffuser by nebulization is generally more expensive to purchase but has a good longevity and excellent diffusion.

 

You may choose these models of diffusers if
- You want to diffuse essential oils for therapeutic purposes (disinfection of ambient air, Zen atmosphere, prevention of winter diseases, etc.)
- You want to make a nice gift to someone: these are beautiful objects, often designed in noble materials and beautiful finishes.
- You want to diffuse over a large area: a nebulizer can easily "treat" 50m², and leave a background smell on 100m².

 

Advantages of a nebulizing diffuser
+ In our opinion, the most efficient in terms of technology and in terms of broadcast quality,
+ These diffusers are powerful and can quickly cover large volumes (up to 120 m² for a standard ceiling of 2.50 m in height)
+ Diffusion is done cold. 2 advantages to this: There is no degradation of essential oils by heat and their particles are particularly well dispersed during their projection. They are therefore lighter and remain suspended in the air longer than with other technologies.
+ The micronization allows a fractionation of the essential oils on the glass wall and thus to release a maximum of active ingredients and scents.
+ In addition to being essential oil diffusers, they are very beautiful decorative objects designed with noble materials such as wood and glass.

 

Disadvantages of a nebulizer diffuser
- This technology involves the operation of a pump which may generate some noise. The air expelled under pressure creates the Venturi effect and emits a vibration. And who says vibration, says noise. A nebulizer will therefore always emit a small hissing sound, which is not disturbing in a living room, but this makes its use more restrictive in a bedroom or during a meditation session. But like smells, sensitivities to noise are unique to everyone.
- The glassware gets dirty and therefore requires maintenance. This remains to be scheduled from time to time (1 to 2 times per month depending on the frequency of use and the type of essential oils).
- Another obstacle to the purchase of these models by nebulization: the price. It is clearly the top of the range in terms of diffusion technology, the glassware is fine, and the manufacturers often use noble materials: wood, glass, bamboo, etc.

 

Pump technology for nebulizationDiffuseur sans verrerie Neolia
Diffuser without Neolia glasswareThese are models intended for maximum diffusion in rooms of 100 to 150 m².
The principle is identical except that the air is compressed by an electric micro-motor. These models are reliable over time and they are more powerful and quieter than membrane models.
Examples: wooden floor diffuser as Green apple, , Potiron, , diffuseur Elixia, broadcaster Daolia, broadcaster Novea, broadcaster Bo black, etc

 

Diffusion by nebulization ... without glassware
In recent years, nebulization diffusers have appeared on the market, models without glassware. No more need for glassware, connect the essential oil bottle of your choice, program the device and take full advantage of the benefits of aromatherapy. You can therefore benefit from all the advantages of a micro-diffusion diffuser (those mentioned above) without the disadvantages (cleaning). A real revolution in the field of broadcasting.

MIST DIFFUSERS (or ultrasonic)

These models have been very popular for a few years. They are also called ultrasonic, ultrasonic or hybrid devices because they allow both to diffuse essential oils but also water vapor (which will humidify your atmosphere a little too dry).

 

Principle of ultrasonic diffusersBrumisateur Fontaine Ovale
Ultrasound is a sound whose frequency is higher than 20khz and which cannot be heard by the human ear (too acute).
A membrane vibrates in the frequency range between 20 kHz and 80 kHz. Droplets are torn from the surface of the liquid, so that the water (and any essential oils you add to it) is "atomized" into droplets so fine that they evaporate into a mist.
The size of the droplets will depend on the frequency of the device. The higher the frequency, the finer the droplets and the characteristics of the fluid (density, viscosity, surface tension).

 

You may choose these models of diffusers if
- You want to effectively diffuse essential oils without having a powerful device.
- You absolutely want to "see" the diffusion: the mist that emerges is very visual, almost hypnotizing!

 

Benefits of a Mist Diffuser
+ Diffuses in addition to essential oils of water vapor,
+ Not very noisy,
+ Allows diffusion for large rooms (up to 80 m² for some models),
+ Easy maintenance,
+ Aesthetic models, which make them real decorative objects. In addition, the mist that emerges creates a beautiful visual effect
+ All essential oils can be used in this type of device.

diffuseur brumisateur Zenea

 

Disadvantages of a misting diffuser
- Diffusion slower than a model by nebulization,
- Often designed with less noble materials than nebulization devices. This allows them to lower their selling price!
- You do not easily control the quantity of essential oil diffused (these being added to water).
- Essential oils are generally diffused quickly (in less than 10 minutes). It will therefore be necessary to regularly add essential oils if you want the atmosphere to last.
- These diffusers diffuse, in addition to essential oils, water. This can be an advantage if the surrounding air is very dry, but a disadvantage if your house is already humid. But if you are looking for an air humidifier, and which, on occasion, can diffuse essential oils, this device will suit you perfectly.

 

Purists will say that essential oil diffusion and humidification cannot be done perfectly with a single device (this type of diffuser is nevertheless a good compromise, even if it is a little less effective than nebulizers (micro-diffusers) for the aromatherapy part).

VENTILATION DIFFUSERS (or cold forced air)

Diffuseur Aroma Wind

The principle is very simple: a fan "propels" the air through a pad that you have previously soaked in essential oils. This pulsating stream of air instantly spreads essential oils throughout the room.

As it is very quiet, you can use it in a bedroom or in an office, its power not allowing it to cover a complete home.

Ventilation diffusers are reserved for smaller surfaces than nebulization diffusers (up to 60 m² depending on the model).

 

You may choose these models of diffusers if
- You want a small portable diffuser, to accompany you everywhere.
- You are looking to do small, simple and uncomplicated distribution
- You can't afford a dry ultrasonic powered diffuser.

 

Advantages of a ventilation diffuser
+ Very simple: No glassware to maintain and basic technology
+ No heat, so the oils are not denatured,
+ Very discreet. Not as much as those with gentle heat, but the noise emitted by the ventilation is almost inaudible.

 

Disadvantages of a ventilation diffuser
- Due to their power, the volumes covered remain low. However, they are still perfect if you want to use them in small spaces like a car or an office.
- Requires changing the blotting pad from time to time. It is therefore a consumable. But rest assured, you won't have to change it every 4 mornings either!
- Some “a bit heavy” essential oils are poorly diffused (the larger molecules remain on the pad)

SOFT HEAT DIFFUSERS

aromashell

The diffuser by heat remains the simplest of the diffusers. This ranges from the simple cup of essential oil placed on the radiator, to models with a thermostat, including the classic candle perfume burner.

Be careful though : in order not to degrade the essential oils, the temperature must not exceed 45° C. The candle perfume burner in particular is not recommended. The temperature obtained may be higher than 100°C. This temperature accelerates oxidation and alters the properties of essential oils.

We strongly advise you to move towards models equipped with thermoregulated resistance at low temperature. You will be able to enjoy a good diffusion without altering the essential oils. Pure or mixed with a little water, essential oils evaporate naturally. Evaporation and diffusion are facilitated and accelerated by the supply of gentle heat provided by the device.

Producing no noise, you can place these models on a bedside table, on your desk or in all rooms with an area of ​​less than 20 m².

 

You can choose these diffuser models ifDiffuseur Lightlia
- You are looking for a small, light and non-obtrusive diffusion to create an atmosphere
- You don't want any noise
- You want a small, inexpensive essential oil diffuser to start with.

 

Benefits of a soft heat diffuser
+ Soft heat does not degrade the properties of essential oils (thermoregulated resistance),
+ No maintenance (a little bit of cloth and alcohol is enough),
+ No noise,
+ Aesthetic models, which make them real decorative objects,
+ Suitable for small rooms such as a bedroom or an office.

 

Disadvantages of a soft heat diffuser
- Not very powerful, this type of diffuser will only cover small areas (maximum 20 m²),
- Diffusion is slower. Be patient, sometimes it takes 10-15 minutes for the particles to smell
- Does not split the molecules of essential oils to extract a maximum of properties and scents,
- Certain "a little heavy" essential oils such as citrus fruits have trouble being diffused, on the other hand light essential oils such as eucalyptus are very well diffused.

DRY PROPULSION DIFFUSERS (or ultra nebulization)

This technology is very recent. The principle remains simple : the essential oils are brought into direct contact with a small metal plate, which vibrates at very high frequency under the effect of ultrasound. 2 technologies exist in this same category: models with essential oil that soak in a wick and the latest generation that will replace the first without this wick shortly. This vibration projects very fine particles of essential oils and creates a good quality aerosol.

Although they also work by ultrasound, do not confuse them with foggers which work with water, and project a mist.

And don't confuse them with those called nebulization diffusion either. In the case of ultra nebulization, pure essential oils are diffused using high-frequency vibrations generated by magnets, rather than splitting the essential oils with a powerful jet of air.

 

You may choose these models of diffusers if
- You are looking for a very small device that can be transported everywhere
- You want to diffuse in small spaces (office, car, toilets, etc.)
- You want to be at the forefront of technology in the field of essential oil diffusion

 

Advantages of ultrasonic dry diffusion
+ Mobile device. They work either through a USB port or on battery
+ Extremely quiet
+ Easy maintenance,
+ Good broadcast quality with coverage up to 60 m² with the latest models like the Lilia
+ New generation of broadcast that will become widespread soon

 

Disadvantages of ultrasonic dry diffusion
For those who like to "See" the broadcast, you will only perceive with this type of device a jet from time to time. Nothing to do with a fogger or a classic nebulizer where the jet can be continuous. Seeing the mist coming out reassures people most of the time.

AUTONOMOUS OR MOBILE DIFFUSERS

This type of natural diffusion does not need electricity to operate. Autonomous or nomadic diffusers are ideal for small rooms such as bathrooms or toilets or even cars. You can choose between a sponge diffuser (the sponge contained inside the pot brings the oils to the surface by capillary action) or a diffuser with porous stone (the pebble contained inside the aluminum pot serves as a diffuser. Just pour essential oils over the top, let soak in and open the lid when you want to diffuse).

 

You may choose stand-alone diffusers if
- You want to take your diffuser everywhere with you.
- You want to diffuse your essential oils in very small rooms

 

Benefits of Freestanding Diffusers
+ Ideal for (very) small rooms
+ Very easy to use,
+ Very affordable price,
+ Light and practical, to take everywhere,
+ Cold diffusion prevents essential oils from degrading

 

Disadvantages of Freestanding Diffusers
- Slow Diffusion
- Only relevant for small parts
- Does not allow to extract the maximum of the properties and scents of essential oils
