Why I’m Quitting My Ultrasonic Diffuser 👋

Posted by Emma Jones

Looking for an ultrasonic diffuser? I don’t know how to say this, but…

Honey, you’re going to waste your essential oils 🤷🏻‍♀️

Okay, just hear me out:

I’ve been a fan of essential oils for over a decade, ever since I learned about their aromatic and natural healing properties – 

I paired them with an ultrasonic diffuser when I first moved into my new flat, and that truly made my family’s new place feel like home 🏠👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

It runs the whole day, it works great as a humidifier and I can wind down with the click of a button!

Except…I also had to put up with the ultrasonic inconvenience package:

  • The water-based operation diluted my oils, so I was really just paying for an overglorified (and expensive!) air freshener 🤦🏻‍♀️
  • If you’re not diligent, the water tank gets mouldy and as pleasant to clean as your toilet seat 🚽
  • Leaks became too common and even ruined the finish on my favorite cherry dresser 💦 

The secret to unlocking your essential oil’s potential…

It wasn’t until a friend gifted me a new nebuliser that I finally realised, I was leaving SO much of my oils’ potential on the table!

You get to enjoy your oils at their purest, experience the therapeutic benefits without compromise and you don’t need any water for it. That’s right, no more gurgling or leaks!

But if you’re still in doubt, read on to decide if nebulisers are for you — Here are 5 of the best (and the worst!) of the products I’ve tested from Young Living to doTERRA and everything in between 👇

I use my Sofia everyday

I have both the Sofia and Zoe! I use the Zoe in my room with the remote that I can control from my bed and I use my Sofia in the big living room since it has such a strong aroma effect :)

Best. Diffuser. Ever.

It is by no stretch of exaggeration when I say that Sofia is the best diffuser I've owned.
I enjoy the mists and large tanks that other diffusers offer, but I've never experienced one that delivers on the all-natural promises of my essential oils. Purity matters, and it's not just relaxing but also relieving to know that my oils aren't altered in any way at all. I've been sleeping better, breathing better and just feeling like the best brightest version of myself. A quick meditation with the Sofia turned on totally changes your mood and outlook for the rest of the day.
And the materials? Sofia's so finely built and you can just tell that they took their time and effort to design and curate the materials, unlike so many Amazon listings these days.
Amazing diffuser. Would recommend to anyone 10/10.

Finally a diffuser that doesn't leak

Finally a diffuser that doesn't leak - I've had mine for 2 years now and I still love it!
It only takes a minute to get the room filled with essential oil smells and it helps me unwind my day.
