I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift from Organic Aromas, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company itself or by Chronic Illness Bloggers.
Y'all know I'm not into the essential oil thing too much. I have a few oils that I picked up after visiting a medium back in 2014. Because of my fibro symptoms, it's been too much to utilize the oils directly on my skin unless I'm really desperate. Plus, I got avocado oil as the main oil... without remembering that the guinea pigs are super allergic to avocado.
All in all, it's safe to say essential oils haven't been my thing. That's actually why I've been excited to try this product. I received my Essential Oil Diffuser shortly after coming back from the JA Conference East in Philadelphia (a blog post on both JA Conferences is coming, I promise).
Before we dive into what I thought of the product, you may be wondering how this fancy-looking dealamabobber works. For that, I direct you to Organic Aromas' page on the matter. The biggest thing is that this diffuser doesn't need water or heat, meaning that you have the ability to receive the awesomeness of the oils and scent. If, like me, you wouldn't mind getting more information about essential oils, check out their page on that as well.
The box itself was pretty cute, and I really liked the simple design of the diffuser itself.
It also CHANGES COLORS.
At first, I had an issue utilizing the diffuser with the oil sent to me with it. The blend, meant for serenity, actually was an overload of smells and I had some migraine-like reactions to it. I'm sensitive to smells and, ironically, that oil wasn't giving me serenity. This blend contains cedarwood, yiang yiang, lime, and lavender.
I'm familiar enough with lime and lavender, which have never had an effect on me like this, but the other two are scents I'm not normally exposed to. Since I have some funky plant allergies, I'm chalking up my reaction to those.
To test if this was the issue, I popped in my cinnamon essential oil that I already had. Things went from uh-oh to YES. Plus, my apartment smelled amazing. I wish that the scent reached a little further, but the reach is easily adjustable with the 'volume' button. When that is increased, it does increase the noise a little bit from whisper-quiet to phone-vibrate, but this is an easy noise to deal with and drown out. After about five minutes, I didn't notice it anymore.
At those higher 'volumes' there was also some fog coming out the top that was super cool.
I am excited to see how much I'll be able to make my apartment smell like fall shortly.
So, Organic Aromas Nebulizing Essential Oil Diffuser: Yea or nay?
Definitely yay, but with some personal tweaks.
