How to Pick an Essential Oil Diffuser — 7 Comments

  1. Thank you for the post. I am looking for an intermittent diffuser with long intervals. Like you said, most intermittent diffusers have a 30 seconds on/30 seconds off timer. The diffuser you link to from this article says that the interval timer is 30 seconds. Are you sure this is the correct diffuser?

    • Hi Kim, Thanks for your question. The link that we share in the article was to a diffuser that my daughter loved. It was sold out for a while and it looks like the diffuser that they have available now, but I can’t see where it states what the intervals are. There is a comment in the reviews where someone states that the interval is only 30 seconds… I have been thinking of replacing my older diffuser and recently came across this one with a 30 min setting. Here is the link I guess our search is back on. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Kay

  2. Thank you for getting back to me. I will have a look at the link you just sent. Having longer intervals is important to us because of the stimulating effect of smelling something new. After a while the scent becomes part of the background, so stopping the diffuser and restarting it after a while makes the experience that much more interesting.

    • Hi Kim, I thought of that too. The Aroma Fuse from Plant Therapy has the desired time modes but as Erin states it is pricey. I really haven’t seen the 30 min. intermittent cycle in any other diffuser except the LED Concepts that we found on Amazon and now it isn’t available any longer. I have found a few with 30 min. timers but they just shut off and are not intermittent. I guess diffuser makers haven’t caught up with the Tisserand recommendations. Be well, Kay

    • Hi Becky, This is a nebulizer, so it will be more expensive. The ultrasonic water diffusers are not so pricey. You get a concentrated dose of essential oils and consequently use more of them with a nebulizer/atomizer. K
