One of my favourite things to do, is to diffuse my essential oils. Discovering new blends and enjoying how they make me feel has been a real adventure considering how many recipes there are out there. I started out by adding a few drops on to a tissue and placing it in my pillow case before going to bed and found that lavender is all that they say it is when it comes to promoting relaxation and sleep. As I get older, my sleep patterns have gotten so disrupted that I can use all the help I can get in that department.
When I was looking for my first diffuser, I really wasn’t sure what I wanted, but I knew I didn’t want to break the bank. There are a lot of places that sell diffusers, but they cost more than I was willing to spend. I had already decided on getting an ultrasonic diffuser, simply because they seemed easy to operate and the prices were reasonable. Based on some reviews I had read, I decided to shop on Amazon and ended up with the VicTsing 300ml Wood Grain Essential Oil Diffuser Whisper Quiet Cool Mist Humidifier – Black.
There are so many things to like about this diffuser:
- UNIQUE DESIGN. With classic wood grain finish, this essential oil diffuser can be used as a decorative piece. It fits with your décor perfectly and provides an elegant and healthy lifestyle.
- TIMER OPTIONS. Four time setting modes: 1 hour, 3 hours, 6 hours or continuous. Just select a suitable mode and create a calming and relaxing environment.
- LONGER MIST TIME. Water tank: 300ml. The diffuser covers up to 25-30 square meters, perfect for your room, office, yoga room, hotel room etc. It can last for 6-10 hours. It will shut off automatically when water runs out of, so there is no worrying about burning up.
- 7 SOOTHING LED LIGHT. The color can be cycled through or set it to one fixed color. Each color has two light options: dim and brighter. Adopted ultrasonic technology, this aromatherapy diffuser will not disturb your study, work or sleep. The light can be turned off as well.
- DIFFUSER & HUMIDIFIER. Adding several drops of oils into it, it will fill your space with lovely fragrance to remove bad odors or add specific blends to create therapeutic benefits. You can also use it as a humidifier without oils to add more moisture to the room.
What I love about this unit is that it looks great in my bedroom, is quiet enough to not disturb my sleep and keeps moisture in the air during these dry winter months. I’ve noticed that I also haven’t gotten sick yet this winter since I’ve been experimenting with immunity blends and have been sleeping better as well. This unit is easy to clean and fill with water – just lift the top off! I am very happy with this product and many others must agree with me since it has a 5 star rating on Amazon.ca.
Lucky for me, I also got another diffuser for Christmas from my daughter. I had planned on getting another one for my office and craft room so I wouldn’t have to keep moving my VicTsing around the house. During my initial search, I had looked at the NOW diffuser because the local health food stores were selling them, but the price point was higher than what I wanted to spend for this smaller capacity unit. In the end, as a gift, it works well in my office and in our spare bedroom when the grandkids come for a sleepover since they like the changing lights and I like that it keeps moisture in the air for them. Surprisingly, the quality of this diffuser is good and it’s very easy to operate.
According to the unit specs, the NOW® Solutions Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser combines scientific innovation with contemporary design to create an essential oil diffuser that’s a perfect addition any home or office. This cute little diffuser is BPA-free and utilizes high-frequency ultrasonic electrical vibrations to create an ultra-fine aromatherapy mist. Like my VicTsing unit, this diffusion method doesn’t utilize heat, and is a healthy alternative to synthetic room fresheners and scented candles.
The unit itself is two pieces which makes it very easy to operate. Just lift the dome, fill the water tank up to the max water level line, add essential oils to the water and it is ready to go. There are changing lights that you can rotate or stop on one color, or not have any color at all. The water chamber holds about 120 ml and runs about 4-6 hours. It automatically stops when the chamber runs out of water. It has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon.ca.
Although I really like this little unit, it’s very pricey here in Canada. It would almost be worth it to order from Amazon.com and pay the exchange difference!
I was so happy with my VicTsing 300ml Wood Grain Essential Oil Diffuser Whisper Quiet Cool Mist Humidifier – Black I decided to order the same or something similar for my daughters for Christmas. Since I was looking at economics, I wanted to get something similar to mine for a decent price. Back I went to Amazon and found what I was looking for with lightening deals. The girls couldn’t be happier with my choices and use their diffusers every day.

There are so many types, sizes and styles of ultrasonic diffusers out there and you can get them at different price points to suit your budget. I made a point of reading whatever reviews I could find on the diffusers I was considering and am happy with the choices that I made. It’s impossible to try everything out there, but start with something you can afford and build from there. I love both my diffusers and run them regularly. Happy shopping!
