Considering that one of the main reasons to emit essential oils into a room's air is to relieve stress, the last thing you want is a complicated device that's difficult to operate, disruptive, unsafe, or unsightly. This little gem is none of those. It's easy to use: just fill it with some water and your favourite scents and switch it on.
The Lotus Aroma Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser is safe, and operates very quietly: it's made of a BPA-free material; it doesn't get hot or make a boiling noise (it just diffuses relatively cool (77-95°F) steam); and shuts off automatically when it's out of water. And it's nice to look at, with a simple curved shape in a Pearl White colour for the main body; and a slightly conical translucent white top which can take on 7 different hues from changing LED lights when that feature is activated by default. (It can also be set to stay on one colour, or to turn off the lights altogether.)
- 2 modes of operation: Continuous diffusion (which will operate for about 4 hours before needing to be refilled); or Intermittent (where the mist comes out in intervals, rather than continuously, in which case it can operate for about 6 hours before running out of water)
- Operates on 100-240V | 50-60Hz power supplies, with very low power consumption (12W)
- One Year Manufacturer's Warranty from Date of Purchase (proof of purchase required)
Ensure diffuser is switched off before adding any fluid. Twist and remove diffuser cover. Lift water tank cover. Add 100 ml of water (do not overfill), and at least 5 drops of your favorite essential oil (adjust that amount to desired scent level) - or add alcohol or vinegar instead, to use as an air purifier. Replace covers. Connect adapter cord end into the unit's DC input slot, and plug the adapter into a regular outlet. Switch the 'M' button (just above the power cord slot) on to dispense the Mist (once for intermittent diffusion, twice for continuous, and 3 times to turn it off). Touch the 'L' button above that as many times as desired to switch between its default automatic cycling between the 7 LED light colours, or fixing it to a particular colour / combination, or to turn it off altogether.
Clean regularly, and before adding a different type of essential oil.
