What Essential Oil Diffuser To Use

*This post contains affiliate links. A sincere thanks for supporting me and my family!

Do you love essential oils but aren’t sure what diffuser to use? I started studying essential oils with Jeannne Rose shortly before they became quite so popular. One of the first things she taught me was that heat destroys the chemical components of the oils and you should never use a diffuser that uses heat.

There weren’t a lot of diffusers on the market back then. I managed to find a pretty decent one that required water. I had the ability to chose how much “mist” I wanted to come out and how often. It was fairly quiet, but it was made of plastic and had a filter that needed replaced every so often. Unfortunately, it also had LED lights, but there was no way to turn them off. As a highly sensitive person, I can’t stand LED lights. I had to take the device apart and cut the wires to get rid of the lights. It was a total pain in the butt.


Then I happened to stumble upon Organic Aroma’s nebulizer diffuser. What caught my eye at first was their beauty. They are absolutely gorgeous, like a piece of art. Which, really they are because they are all hand-made, one of a kind. (You can even watch a short video of how they make their essential oil diffusers.) And, it doesn’t require water or heat. How was this possible? I’ll be honest, I was skeptical, and a little put off by the price (even though it’s really only $30 more than the diffuser I use, plus Organic Aromas includes a small bottle of essential oil and offers free shipping.)

So, after using the Radiance model for several weeks, is it really worth it? Long story short, yes. And here’s why:

How It Works:

Well, to be completely honest, I still don’t technically understand all of the scientific principles, but it has to do with the Bernoulli Principle. In the end, all that matters is that there’s no heat to damage the essential oil and no water to dilute the scent. With this diffuser your room is filled with 100% pure healing oils.

Why do I say this one is the best?

Well again, it isn’t made of plastic, (I really try to avoid plastic as much as possible), it doesn’t require water, and it doesn’t use heat. Candle diffusers can be a little dangerous. It also uses very little energy to run and can cover a large room since the scent isn’t diluted. Cleaning is super easy, just rinse the glass reservoir with isopropyl alcohol once a week.

After two hours it shuts off automatically, which I love. Like my other diffuser, it also comes with a volume switch to control how much oil you want to release. It runs for 2 minutes and then stops for one minute. This was another principle Jeanne taught me. If it runs constantly, your nose will get “numb” to the scent and you won’t be able to smell it anymore. I usually keep the control at the lowest setting because it’s so powerful. I only had two concerns with this diffuser.

One thing I didn’t realize when I ordered it was that it has LED lights.

(And, LED lights that change color every few seconds, which is even worse for me.) I had a moment of panic and looked for a way to turn them off. I found a button on the side, but it didn’t really “push.” Then I realized you don’t push it, you just swipe your finger across it and the lights go right off! Perfect.

Another concern was breaking the delicate hand blown glass.

My husband will tell you, I’m a totally clumsy person and so is my daughter. The thought of making such an investment, and then breaking it, made me super duper nervous. I was relieved to see they offer glass replacements for only $25. Whew!

I keep it beside my bed and it’s so quiet I can’t hear it at all. It’s super easy to clean and no filter to worry about replacing. In a nutshell, it’s clean, safe and quiet.

Still not quite sure? Your purchase also comes with a free twelve month warranty on parts and labor. Plus, they also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so there’s no risk!

With the recent popularity of essential oils, I’m super picky where I get them from.

There are a lot of poor quality oils and diffusers out there, some even contain synthetic ingredients. Organic Aromas is certified by the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), which my teacher helped found, as well as several other well-respected organizations. That was another huge reason I decided to try them and trust that their oils are professional grade.


  • Price. (Totally worth it, but tough for those on a budget.)
  • Hand-blown glass is delicate and the diffuser would need to be placed up high from little ones or clumsy people like me! (Luckily replacements are only $25!)
  • LED Lights. (But technically not a con since you can easily turn them off.)


  • Absolutely gorgeous piece of artwork.
  • Hand-made and high quality.
  • Covers a large area.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Releases 100% pure therapeutic essential oils into the air.
  • Adjustable controls.
  • Shuts off automatically.
  • Ability to turn off the LED lights if you aren’t a fan.
  • Safe. (No candles or flames.)
  • Energy efficient.
  • Free shipping.
  • One-year warranty.
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee.

For me personally, the pros far outweigh the cons and Organic Aroma’s diffuser will be what I’m recommending from now on, for sure. What is your favorite diffuser? Please share in the comments!
