You Need an Aroma Diffuser or a Humidifier?

In modern society, people stay at home longer than before, because they realize that home is the best place to relax and refresh themself. And people would like to buy household appliances to improve the home environment, such as the recently hot-sales humidifier and aromatherapy machine. However, many people do not know how to choose the product that they need?

Then this article will let you know which product you need.

What are the aroma diffuser and the humidifier?

Aroma diffuser: specially designed for essential oil users, it can be added pure essential oil alone (waterless), or essential oil plus water. When you add essential oils and water into it, it can not only increase the humidity of the air but also spread the aroma molecules. 

Humidifier: The main function of the humidifier is to humidify, only add fresh water.

What are the differences between an aroma diffuser and a humidifier?

1.Working principle — ultrasonic atomization technology

At present, most humidifiers apply the principle of ultrasonic atomization technology, which is through the ultrasonic high-frequency vibration to atomize water into ultra-fine particles, exceeding 1-5 microns. And the water mist is diffused into the air by the wind-driven device to increase the humidity of the air.

The working principle of the aromatherapy machine is also using ultrasonic atomization technology. The aromatherapy machine adopts bigger power to atomizes the essential oil and water molecules to the nanometer level, which means the mist particles are evenly smaller, the humidifying effect is more obvious, and the delicate essential oil molecules are quickly distributed to each corner.

In short, the ultrasonic oscillating power of the humidifier is small, and it can’t atomize the oil well and will cause the essential oil molecules to clog the machine.

2.Different materials

Humidifier: Mostly the humidifiers use ABS or AS plastic as the water tank material, which is not resistant to the corrosion of essential oils. Long-term use will cause the water tank to be corroded, and It may also produce toxic gas and release it into the air when you use it.

Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser: Because the pure essential oils are acidic, it is easy to corrode the ordinary plastic containers. Therefore, the aromatherapy machines are made of PP to prevent corrosion. And internal parts of the aromatherapy machine are specially developed for the essential oils, which are resistant to the corrosion of the oil.

3.Cleaning methods

Humidifier: Due to the material of the humidifier, it is easy to produce dirt after use, and it is difficult to clean. Atomized chips may also block and aging.

Aromatherapy machine: The tank of the oil diffuser is treated by a special treatment process, which is convenient to use and clean.

In short, the aromatherapy machine is better than a humidifier on material and technology. What’s more, the aromatherapy machine can be used as a humidifier and an aroma diffuser.

Aromatherapy machine classification

  1. Essential Oil Diffuser (Waterless): Only use the pure essential oil, This aromatherapy machine focuses on the effect of fragrance treatment, using higher purity essential oil to get a therapeutic effect. It uses a higher vibration power to break the essential oil molecules into extremely fine particles, completely retaining the natural ingredients and to be more easily absorbed by the body, which is better for aromatherapy.
  2. Aroma Diffuser: Can be put into the pure essential oil and water. This aroma diffuser transforms the water and essential oil into a water vapor mist state by ultrasonic vibration and evenly diffuses indoors. Not only can it moisturize, but also the delicate aroma of essential oil is distributed to every corner and brings people an elegant environment.
