The Aromasoft essential oil diffuser is sold by Fine Line Living, a family company with an excellent track record of great home products and good customer service. This diffuser looks great and works even better at turning your home, or any other space, into a heavenly spa. It produces a nice strong mist that humidifies the air as well as making it smell great. Depending on which essential oils you use, the mist also helps with health issues such as headaches, insomnia and nasal congestion. Here are some of the best features.
1. 120ml Capacity With 4-5 Hours Of Continuous Mist
When talking about capacity, there are three categories of essential oil diffusers. The large ones that measure 500ml or more and can last for 10 hours or more, the medium ones measuring 200-300ml and last 8-10 hours and the small-capacity ones that are 100-150ml and generally last 4-6 hours.
With a capacity of 120ml, the Aromasoft diffuser belongs to the last category. While the maximum capacity is 120ml, the reservoir has a waterline that goes up to just 100ml. You can fill it up completely but for best results, do not go beyond the indicated line. This allows the unit to produce a strong mist that can spread wider.
2. Continuous And Intermittent Modes
The unit has two buttons to control the light and mist. Each is indicated with lettering beside it. Using the mist button, you can choose from one of two modes; continuous or intermittent. The continuous mode keeps the mist going continuously for around 4 to 5 hours. When the water level gets too low, he unit will automatically switch off to avoid damage. So you can leave it on and forget about it without worrying.
The intermittent mode on the other hand, sets the diffuser to produce a mist on thirty second intervals – thirty seconds on, thirty seconds off. This mode can give you as much as 8 hours of runtime and is great when you need a single refill to last through the night.
3. LED Mood Lights
As if the aroma is not enough to help you relax, the unit comes with an array of vibrant mood lights to help you relax even more. By default, the colors will run on a rotating cycle, gradually changing from one to another. Using the light button, you can choose the color you want and set it to remain there. This comes in handy when you want a color that matches your mood; green for refreshed, blue for relaxing, red for romantic and so on.
The color and mist controls are entirely independent. You can switch off the lights but leave the mist on or switch off the mist but leave the lights on. This is helpful when you want to enjoy the mist without the lights or want to use the diffuser as a night light without the mist.
4. Lifetime Warranty
Did I mention Lifetime Warranty? The Aromasoft is the first diffuser I have seen with a lifetime warranty. This means that the company will gladly repair the unit or send you a new one should it malfunction. Of course proper maintenance is a requirement of the warranty. This gives you peace of mind, knowing there is no risk of throwing your money down the drain.
A Few Issues And Downsides
You can use the diffuser with any water, not just distilled water, as long as you maintain a regular cleaning routine. Additionally, clean the unit every time you use heavy and concentrated oils such as citrus oils. This prevents the internal parts from clogging up and keeps the diffuser running smoothly.
As for the downsides, I have two to complain about. One, many users have noted that the cap is a bit difficult to remove. It occasionally causes some frustration when you need to pour in more water or clean the reservoir. Two, there is no timer. A timer is important when you do not need the unit to run for a full 8 hours and use up all the water.
The Final Verdict
The Aromasoft essential oil diffuser is incredibly popular with over 2000 reviews on Amazon. With all the features we have seen above, it is easy to see why. The design is top class and it works great. If you are looking for a stylish, affordable and compact essential oil diffuser, get this one.
