It almost resembles a rocket ship only with beautiful selection of cool lights. At less than $40, there is no reason you should not buy yourself the Viva Naturals essential oil diffuser. It comes with a nice modern design, adding a flare of style to your office desk or bedside table.
It is super easy to use with settings that allow you to set the perfect mood to relax. There is even a measuring cup to make your work really simple. If you were looking for a compact and affordable essential oil diffuser for use at home, place of business or office, the Viva Naturals diffuser is a great choice. Here are some of its best features.
1. Vibrant mood lighting
This is the best and most noticeable feature of the diffuser. There are 7 mood lights including Mystic Blue, Mellow Yellow and Sunset Red. The colors are as amazing as they sound, with each establishing a special aura.
But that is not all; there are a few other light tricks you can take advantage of. A dim light allows you to lower the brightness, creating a nice mellow mood perfect for those evenings you just want to sit back and relax.
The diffuser automatically rotates between different light colors when you turn it on. But you can stop at a specific color by pushing the button and it will stop cycling through different colors. This feature is great when you want only a specific light mood or when you want to use the diffuser as a night light.
While the main function of the diffuser is to produce the aromatic mist, the light really does make a big improvement. It makes the experience much more relaxing and you can establish the exact kind of atmosphere you desire.
2. Ultrasonic technology
The use of ultrasonic technology in diffusers is relatively recent. It relies on a rapidly vibrating disc to break up the water and oil solution into really tiny particles that form a mist. It comes with numerous advantages compared to other types of essential oil diffusers. For instance, diffusers that use heat run the risk of degrading the oil.
Ultrasonic diffusers use less water, which results in longer running times. It also ensures a quiet operation. No one wants a loudly whirring diffuser on the side when they are trying to relax.
3. Three working modes
The diffuser does not leave you with just a single way to use the diffuser. To cater to different moods and situations, there are three working modes. The first is a continuous mist. This is the ordinary mode where the diffuser releases a mist continuously.
The second is an intermittent mode where the diffuser releases a mist every thirty seconds. This results in a longer running duration. The third is a lights-only feature that allows you to operate the diffuser with only the lights on and the mist turned off. This essentially turns it into a night light or a mood light.
In the continuous mode, the diffuser can run for 4 to 5 hours before the water runs out and the diffuser switches off automatically. In the intermittent mode, it goes for double this duration; around 8 hours. The intermittent mode is great if you want to use the diffuser through the night or all day long.
4. Air humidification
As the diffuser spreads the essential oil aroma around the room, it also releases a mist of water. This creates a relaxing and healthy humidification effect. Not only is it relaxing, it also wards off bacteria, reduces allergens in the air and improves overall air quality.
5. How To Clean
As for cleaning, the manufacturer’s advice is a weekly cleaning routine. Take the diffuser apart, making sure to unplug it first. Pour out any remaining liquid on the indicated side and use a mild detergent and warm water to do a thorough clean. If you want to clean it daily, use a damp cloth to wipe away any essential oil residues. Do not use any harsh soaps or detergents.
Few Issues To Note
The manufacturer recommends using the diffuser only with pure essential oils. Impure oils might clog the diffuser and cause problems. Once you fill up the water in the reservoir, just add 5 to 6 drops of pure aromatherapy oil and you are ready to go.
