If you are on the lookout for a compact and effective diffuser, this is one of the best you can buy. The package includes the diffuser (of course), a user guide and a measuring cup. Here are some of the best features.
1. Minimalist Compact Design
The diffuser spots a trendy modern design, with a woodgrain base and a plastic top (BPA-free), perfect for adorning your office desk or coffee table. It will also fit in well with your contemporary home décor, office, yoga, gym and patio. The top casing, which extends to around three quarters of the unit’s height, is a translucent hard plastic. This allows it to emit a soft vibrant light when the unit is on.
The base is where the heart of the unit is. The plug goes to the bottom and the control buttons are near the base on the woodgrain section. The design is very stylish and you can you can carry it around with you, weighing only 1.4 pounds.
2. Adjustable Mood Lights
The design is not the only cool thing about the ANJOU essential oil diffuser, wait until the lights come on. When you press the lights button, a rotating rainbow of colors comes to life. The colors change between red, green, blue, yellow and various other hues.
With a press of the button you can settle on a single color to match your mood or switch off the lights. Blue is ideal when you want to relax, yellow for when you feel euphoric, green for when you want to feel refreshed and so on. But this is not all; you can also change the brightness level of each light between soft and bright.
Because the light and mist mechanisms are independent, you can easily switch off the mist and leave the lights on or the other way round. Thus, you can turn the diffuser into a nightlight by switching off the mist and keeping the lights on.
3. 300ml Capacity With 8 Hours Runtime
The capacity is relatively large at 300ml. For many users, this is a big factor in deciding whether to buy this particular diffuser or opt for another one. With a 300ml reservoir, the diffuser can run for a maximum of eight hours. This is very reasonable for most people as it will last the entire night without the need for refilling the unit.
4. Safety Shutoff
The unit does come with a timer as well; you have the choice of 1 hour, 3 hour, 6 hour or continuous mode settings. The 1 hour is ideal for an aromatherapy or yoga session, 3 hour is the setting of choice if you want to have a nap during the day, whilst 6 hours is for when you have guests over for lunch or dinner and want the aroma to continuously diffuse through your living area.
The unit has a safety shut off feature as well. This basically means that once the water runs dry in the reservoir, the safety shutoff feature comes into action and the unit automatically shuts down to prevent any damage to the diffuser. So you can have peace of mind when leaving it on all night.
The diffuser is not just useful for freshening up your home and helping you relax. The mist produced also helps to humidify the air, creating a better, healthier and more relaxing environment. If you live where temperatures tend to get high, this feature could come in handy.
Further, the ultrasonic operation of the diffuser can deal with help you and your family deal with the flu.
To clean the unit, just remove the top casing and pour out any remaining water. If it is a daily clean, a rinse with warm water and a dry wipe should do. For a weekly deep clean, use a mild soap detergent with warm water to get rid of any stuck oils and minerals.
