Nebulizer diffuser
February 15, 2018 Anna 8 Comments

Besides aromatherapy just being very popular these days, it promotes therapeutic benefits for health and well-being. Also, who doesn’t want their space to smell amazing? and I’m not talking potent aerosol sprays, plug-in air fresheners or scented candles. What better way is there to experience fragrance than to diffuse pure, natural essential oils?

If you are looking to purchase an essential oil nebulizer diffuser and need some good options, then look no further. Nebulizer diffusers are considered the most effective kind of essential oil diffuser on the market since they do not use water to diffuse the essential oils (so the diffusing is more “powerful”). Here you will find some of the best essential oil nebulizing diffuser reviews.

If you want more information on what a nebulizer diffuser is and how exactly it works, you can check that out here.

What to Think About When Purchasing a Nebulizer Diffuser

There are a few things to consider when looking to purchase a nebulizer diffuser. One important note – when using a nebulizer you must never use carrier oils in the diffuser – only pure essential oils. Carrier oils are thicker and will clog/damage the diffuser. Also, there are certain essential oils such as Sandalwood, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Ginger, Vanilla, Frankincense and Myrrh (distilled from roots or resins) or some absolute essential oils that are a bit thicker. These essential oils need caution when using in a nebulizer since they may not atomize or might potentially clog the diffuser. It is advised to dilute such oils with other thinner essential oils (create a blend).

Points to Consider When Looking at Nebulizer Diffusers

  • Made from good quality materials
  • Noise level when running – some nebulizers are quite noisy
  • Has a timer/auto shut-off/amount/intensity adjustment
  • Light/night-light (if it’s a preference)
  • Stable, easy to clean
  • Manufacturer’s warranty

Below, are some good nebulizer choices that I have found.

Final Thoughts

Nebulizer diffusers are very effective for aromatherapy since they diffuse pure, undiluted essential oils. The essential oil molecules disperse very quickly throughout the surrounding air, making it possible for the body to absorb and reap maximum benefits from them. All of the nebulizers listed above are quality diffusers that will be dependable and will last. It always helps to look for different options before making a decision on what you want. I hope this information has helped to accomplish just that.

  1. I like the opulence nebulizer diffuser by organic aromas more. Its elegance is just too good to turn down. I absolutely love it. And the white LED adds some style

    1. Hi Jane!

      I’m glad you acquired some information! Yes you can diffuse oils around pets, although I would not recommend keeping the pets in a closed space for a long time, with the diffuser going.. also there are certain specific oils that shouldn’t be used around pets.

  2. Great article, I really like the design of the Orbis Nox Merus Nebulizing diffuser. I’ve never used one before, do you think having one would help for someone allergic (dustmite & mold) ?

    1. Thanks Ben!

      The Orbis Nox Merus reminds me of those oil lamps they used to use back in the day 🙂
      And yes, using a nebulizer or an ultrasonic diffuser for essential oils, will help purify the air and help get rid of allergens, and dust ect.

  3. hello,
    some of them have cycle 2 minutes on and 1 minute off, with an auto shut-off after 120 minutes other 1, 2 or 4 hour 10 minute on/of cycle or 12-hour shut-off. Which cycle is more recommended? thank you

    1. Hi, it depends how long you might be in that space for, or how long you want the space to have the scent of essential oils being diffused, and weather you want constant or not. I would say, the longer, the better 🙂
