My confidence in aromatherapy goes back decades, having personally experienced many of its benefits over the years. While there's a lot of fluff out there masquerading as ''aromatherapy,'' along with misinformation and misconceptions, many health care practitioners take the science validating the use of essential oils (the pure essence of a plant) for preventative care, healing, and relaxation seriously. Even the number of hospitals integrating clinical aromatherapy into their holistic programs is growing steadily. Out of all the ways to incorporate essential oils into daily living, our favorite is diffusing them into the air. We have wanted to offer a cold-mist aromatherapy diffuser for years, and this porcelain diffuser with frosted glass has been worth the wait.
Unlike other diffusers, this one disperses essential oils without heating or burning, which lessens the therapeutic value of the oils. Using ultrasonic technology with water, it delivers a micro-fine mist of essential oils into the air, where they remain suspended longer than by other means. This in turn produces negative ions, increases oxygen availability, and releases natural ozone in areas up to 377 square feet.
The included remote control enables you to turn the power on or off, as well as select the amount of mist and how long you'd like it to diffuse (30-, 60-, or 90-minutes — or you can simply let it run as long as you'd like, up to 9 hours). You can also select a soothing pre-recorded soundtrack or plug in your MP3, iPod, iPad, CD player or use the USB port for a memory stick or portable hard drive for your own music selections. You can control the volume or opt for silence. That's another thing I love about this unit; it's very quiet. The remote also controls the 7-color LED lights that illuminate the dome, or you can select no light at all.
As an esthetician, I can't speak highly enough about the mist that hydrates not only the air, but your skin as well. Whether you need to let go of stress, clear your sinuses, uplift your spirits, increase mental clarity, or reduce airborne viruses and unpleasant odors, you can create the desired atmosphere depending upon the essential oils you use. The diffuser's graceful design by Swiss designer Carsten Jorgensen allows it to blend in seamlessly with any decor. (Essential oils not included.)
