With so many different essential oil diffuser brands on the market today each offering a variety of models and colors it can be difficult to make an educated buying decision. There are many factors that go into choosing the right diffuser for your needs. Amazon is a pretty good place to start researching, but you need to be careful.
You should do your best to avoid unscrupulous sellers flogging poor quality merchandise and keep your eyes open as many products listed on Amazon have a huge number of fake reviews. Here are our top 5 favorite essential oils diffusers.
The Raindrop Essential Oil Diffuser is our top choice for a several reasons. Most importantly it uses cool mist technology to release a stream of pure essential oils quickly filling any room with a strong aroma. It doesn’t require water to operate which means that if are using your essential oils for professional aromatherapy they will not be diluted providing you with the maximum benefits. Another positive mention is that it doesn’t use heat or fire to release the scent of the oil into the air which can damage the therapeutic properties of your essential oils.
The Raindrop is made from natural, recycled plantation hardwood and custom hand-blown glass. An added bonus is that the unit contains absolutely no plastic. Essential oils can corrode plastic which may leech tiny particles of toxic material into your essential oil.
This ultrasonic essential oil diffuser is a top-rated diffuser on amazon with over thirty thousand reviews and a 4 star rating. When you browse through the reviews, many are quite questionable and misleading. This device is useful and effective especially for dry climates, however, when water is left long in the little tank it is prone to growing mold and fungus. The URPOWER diffuser lightweight using only plastic and water. The only drawback is that when you add your essential oils to the water the oil floats on the top and sticks to the sides of the plastic. Therefore, the scent released is somewhat weakened and diluted. That said, for a super low-priced diffuser, you also get what you pay for.
The Radiance Essential Oil Diffuser is one of the most effective diffusers on the market and for good reason. It can quickly fill a room up to 800 square feet with the heavy aroma of pure essential oil in a matter of minutes. It uses the Bernoulli’s principle which means it combines a concentrated stream of pressurized air with a stream of pure essential oil to create millions of tiny, atomized micro-scent particles that are then forced up and into the air. The Radiance Essential Oil Diffuser doesn’t require water so the scent is strong and effective. Made from recycled plantation wood and hand-blown glass, your essential oils will never come into contact with plastic eliminating exposure to any toxins.

The URPOWER Essential Oil Diffuser Wood Grain Ultrasonic Diffuser is another top seller on amazon. This ultrasonic essential oil diffuser boasts a 400ml water container and adjustable LED lights. While practical and easy-to-use, because water and oil do not mix the mist that is released can become somewhat weak and diluted. Despite the large capacity water tank it cannot fill a room with substantial scent that is larger than 15 x 15 feet. One drawback is this diffuser isn’t normally going to be covered under any kind of strong warranty.

• Rotating colored LED Lights
• 4 Timer Modes 1H/3H/6H/Continous
• Super Quiet and Automatic Shut Off
