The Pros and Cons of a Nebulizing Diffuser

Aromatherapy is the best way to experience the benefits of essential oils. Among the different types of essential oil diffusers, the newest by far is the Nebulizing Diffuser. This type of diffuser uses an innovative mechanism to diffuse essential oils more efficiently. Is it really better than other types of diffusers? Read about the pros and cons of a Nebulizing Diffuser.

What Is A Nebulizing Diffuser?

A Nebulizing Diffuser does not use heat or water to diffuse essential oils. Instead, it uses pressurized air. This pressurized air atomizes the essential oils into microparticles. The Nebulizing Diffuser also creates a vacuum that pulls the essential oil microparticles upward toward the cap and pushes it out, dispersing it into the air.

Pros and of Using A Nebulizing Diffuser

Nebulizing Diffusers are currently the most efficient essential oil diffusers you can find. It is a relatively new innovation but it has quickly proven its worth with these pros:

Diffuses Pure Essential Oils
As mentioned, the Nebulizing Diffuser does not use water or heat to diffuse essential oils. Water dilutes the essential oils so their scent and benefits become less potent. Similarly, heat alters the essential oils’ molecules rendering their benefits less potent. It diffuses the actual essential oils as microparticles. What this means is that you and your family inhale pure, unadulterated essential oils.

Efficient Diffusion
Since the Nebulizing Diffuser releases pure essential oils into the air, it is a lot more efficient than other diffusers, especially when diffusing in a large area. This way, you do not need to keep your diffuser on for hours, which could drive up your electric bill. Diffusing for 30 minutes or an hour will keep your space smelling fresh right away.

In addition to this, you can also control how much essential oil is diffused or how powerful you want the scent to be. Naturally, the higher the power, the more essential oils you consume. The good thing is it’s all up to you since the Nebulizing Diffuser has a volume know that lets you control this aspect.

The Pros and Cons of a Nebulizing Diffuser

Can Withstand Strong Essential Oils
Nebulizing Diffusers are BPA-free—they are made with glass and hardwood, not plastic unlike most ultrasonic diffusers. If you have a plastic-based diffuser, you may have read the warning not to use citrus essential oils. This is because citrus essential oils corrode the plastic. The corroded plastic then may be released along with the essential oils. Without plastic elements coming into contact with essential oils, you do not need to worry about those with the Nebulizing Diffuser.

Easy Maintenance
With Nebulizing Diffusers, you do not need to worry about mold or fungus growing since it does not require water. It is also very easy to clean, which you can do every seven days to keep the tubes from clogging or more frequently if you are using essential oils whose scents you don’t want to mix. Check out the correct process for cleaning a Nebulizing Diffuser.

No Noise
The Nebulizing Diffuser is made for ultimate relaxation or focus, so it does not emit loud motor or vibrating noises. All you will hear is a low, barely noticeable hum. You will still be able to sleep or concentrate on your work while the diffuser is on.

Sleek Design
While other diffusers are also designed to be pleasing to the eyes, Nebulizing Diffusers take design to a higher level. The Nebulizing Diffuser is made with smooth hardwood and hand-blown glass that comes in various sleek designs.


Cons Of Using A Nebulizing Diffuser

Users of the Nebulizing Diffuser all agree that there is only one potential con to using it. Even so, this varies depending on your perspective. The con is that the Nebulizing Diffuser tends to be costlier than other diffusers. There are two considerations here:

Nebulizing Diffusers Are Expensive
It is true that Nebulizing Diffusers are more expensive than other types of diffusers. This is because they are made with high-quality materials and are made to last for years. This type of diffuser is an investment.

Although the Nebulizing Diffuser may cost more upfront, you will end up saving more in the long run since you don’t have to replace your diffuser every few months. Furthermore, it requires very little energy to diffuse and doesn’t need to run for a long time, so if you’re an avid aromatherapy user, you will also save up on electricity.

Nebulizing Diffusers Consume More Essential Oils
Since Nebulizing Diffusers do not mix essential oils with water and instead diffuses pure essential oil microparticles, they indeed use up essential oils faster. This is the price to pay when you want a strong scent and the full benefits of essential oils.

With so many advantages and very little pay-off, do you see now why the Nebulizing Diffuser is the only diffuser you ever need to own?

    I’m concerned with how long the product remains in the air. My daughter is very allergic to flower and herb scents. I would need for it to dissipate before my daughter could come over.

  2. Jeremy Davis says:

    I agree with majority of the peoples opinions as the cost of the product will drive away a lot of potential customers as they rather have a cheaper option even if it doesn’t work as well as the diffuser!

  3. Jennifer Stapp says:

    I currently use a plastic diffuser and green mandarin oil is citrus. Thanks for letting us know about the potential corrosion. Nebulizer is definitely worth the cost.

    In my opinion, the nebulizing diffusers are still the best way to go. I use a diffuser to put off scent into my home. I want as much of that as possible. And I don’t want to have to worry about making sure my water diffuser has enough water in it every few hours.

  7. Bamm Jackson says:

    Didn’t know there was a difference in them. Yea, this one is really costly and with using so much oil n the oil is costly as well. One would have to really think about it before investing in one. Thnks for the information.

      “Nebulizing Diffuser”😳
      Sounds like the thing they used on Star Trek, in place of a gun, that would tase other life forms, they came across, when in danger. It even looks alien-like.
