How to choose the best ceramic oil diffuser
There are a number of things to consider when deciding on the best ceramic oil diffuser to buy.
It’s important to consider the size of the room or space you want to use the ceramic oil diffuser in. A large room requires a larger capacity oil diffuser.
Also, some ceramic oil diffusers look more attractive and would be better suited for an office or a living room where other people will see it.
If you want to use a ceramic oil diffuser in a child’s bedroom, you’d need to consider whether the diffuser will be safe enough in your child’s bedroom. It’s best to choose a ceramic diffuser that is smaller in size and not as easy to knock over. Avoid the vase-like diffusers which would be easy for a child to knock over!
Water tank capacity
The water tank capacity of a ceramic oil diffuser is just as important as the room size you want to use it in. Both go hand in hand. A larger capacity diffuser would be suitable for a larger room. It takes longer to notice the smell of essential oils if you are in a large room, simply because of the larger area. If you have a diffuser with a short run time, and you are using it in a large room, you will be constantly refilling the water tank and you won’t notice the scent as much.
You need to consider how much you are willing to spend on a ceramic oil diffuser, as well as the ongoing cost of purchasing essential oils. A larger capacity oil diffuser requires more drops of essential oils, which could be costly in the long run.
A time is a personal preference, but you should consider whether it is something that’s important to you. A timer lets you set and forget the diffuser, without having to constantly check on it or remember to switch it off. It’s great if you only want the diffuser on for a certain period of time, especially if you don’t want it running overnight.
Some people prefer intermittent mist dispersion, instead of constant. Not all ceramic oil diffusers have an intermittent setting. The advantage of an intermittent setting is that the diffuser has a longer run time, and you don’t waste your essential oils as quickly.
You need to feel comfortable with the warranty and/or money back guarantee that is being offered, in case there are issues with the diffuser later on. Some manufacturers offer both a money back guarantee and a limited warranty, while others only offer a warranty. This is something important to consider before making your purchase.
A ceramic oil diffuser still has plastic components, so those who are wanting to purchase a ceramic diffuser for health or environmental reasons might be disappointed. But, a ceramic oil diffuser is certainly more attractive and visually appealing than a standard plastic essential oil diffuser.
This makes them perfect for an office or workspace, or a room or area where there are lots of people you’d like to impress!
