Another product review! Tada! It’s for the SpaRoom Essential Oil Diffuser.
I’ve been reading about essential oils for some time. I talked to a bunch of people. I finally found oils through a company recommended by women I trust. More on the oils another time-this review is about the diffuser.
I spent some time applying the oils topically, but wanted that “Spa smell” in my house. I know not all of my nearest and dearest agree with diffusing essential oils, but I had to see. Could it be possible that aromatherapy could help me chill out in the midst of my chaotic household?
I couldn’t find a diffuser I liked or could afford. Then on the shelf at checkout while I was waiting in line at Marshall’s* to buy sneakers for little guy was a difusser. And it was only $34.99 to boot! The ones I saw online cost more, and didn’t have some of the features this one did. I grabbed the diffuser, and couldn’t wait to give it a try.
Early Saturday morning, my kids are watching their “show,” and my Pilates mat is laid out. I read the diffuser directions and got excited for aromatherapy goodness.
Here’s the what I thought:
- The SpaRoom diffuser had clear directions, and came assembled except for the power cord, which plugs in easily.
- Easy to add water (to the fill line marked inside the diffuser), add a few drops of essential oils (I chose a calming blend-go figure), and press the “mist” button. The room was sprinkled with scents of Lavender, Bergamot, and Patchouli. It seriously made me close my eyes and take a deep and glorious breath.
- The diffuser also has a “light” button which turns on a soft colored light that slowly changes colors. This is a video of the light changing colors.
- You can “hold” a color so they stop changing by tapping the light button again (my preference).
- What I do wish is that there was a non colored light option. Sometimes in all the craziness, a simple soft white glow is all I need.
- The directions told me that the diffuser would turn off after 3 hours, or before then if it ran out of water.I was (of course) afraid it wouldn’t turn off, and would cause a fire, but alas, the diffuser actually did turn off like it was supposed to (take that anxiety!).
- The unit is a nice size, not big and bulky at all, and the design is simple and streamlined.
I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple diffuser to get some aromatherapy going.
Best part-when my hubby came home from Crossfit, he immediately said, “What is that smell? Did you clean or take a bath or something?”
*Maybe I should disclose here that my hubby actually works for Homegoods at the TJX corporate headquarters. In all honesty I was spending my cash at TJX stores here before I could even met him.
