For years and years I loved my ceramic aromatherapy diffuser. It provided a lovely aroma and a real sense of atmosphere in my room! It seemed to me that these new diffusers were cold and clinical compared to the traditional ones. That’s why I avoided the new electric essential oil diffusers when they first started coming out on the market.
I have a good friend who uses essential oils in her business and she told me that she had started using the new electric diffusers. I told her of my own skepticism and she explained the benefits to me. For starters, there’s no mess and no soot, and you don’t need a constant supply of good quality tea light candles either. Well, that was quite obvious. However, I still considered electric diffusers somehow inferior. Determined to convince me, my friend gave me an overnight loan of hers. Well, I was prepared to try it out, at least for a night!
After an evening’s use of my friend’s diffuser I returned it, my opinion on these new-fangled diffusers starting to change. Nevertheless, I went back to using my old ceramic diffuser. Also visit our top article here for more information here. I used it for another few days until I ran out of tea light candles again (at the end of a very stressful day) and that’s when I decided to go and buy my own electric essential oil diffuser.
However, somewhere along the way I changed my mind. Firstly, one thing I hated with my ceramic diffuser was that I was going through tea light candles at a rapid rate. I decided to purchase some of the cheaper tea light candles as a result, but they didn’t last as long and they left a great deal of soot on the underside of the diffuser bowl.

To me, this soot indicated the candles were no good. The last thing you want with aromatherapy is to pollute the air with soot and goodness knows what other pollutants. For this reason, I chose the more expensive tea light candles, but wasn’t too impressed with the price!
One thing I immediately noticed when I tried it: I used less essential oil. This was a big plus! Also, it had the benefit of “set and forget”. I no longer had to constantly check the level of water to ensure I had enough (there’s nothing worse than burning your diffuser dry). I also found that the aroma produced by the oils seemed to penetrate the air better, despite using less oil. So, I did a bit of research. It turns out that the electric diffusers are somehow able to produce micro particles of the essential oils, which allows them to disperse even better.
Occasionally, I still use my old ceramic diffuser, I think more from nostalgia than anything else. However, most of the time it sits on my mantelpiece looking decorative rather than functional!
There are lots of aromatherapy diffusers that are scattered in different types of market in any places. All are good, but choose what will best fits to your budget and needs.
