Are ceramic essential oil diffusers better than plastic essential oil diffusers?

We have found that although the essential oil diffusers within this post are marketed as “ceramic essential oil diffusers”, they still contain plastic water tanks. So if you are concerned about plastics and essential oil diffusers because of possible health implications, using a ceramic essential oil diffuser won’t alleviate your concerns.

However, a ceramic essential oil diffuser doesn’t look as “cheap” as a plastic one. In fact, there are some very stylish and unique designs, as you will find in our review post below.

November 2017 Note: We are currently in the process of updating our post, and have removed the diffuser models that are currently out of stock. We are researching some new ceramic oil diffusers to include in this post.

Heka Living Essential Oil Diffuser Humidifier

The Heka Living ceramic essential oil diffuser is a small and stylish diffuser that has a lovely outer design. The ceramic shell has patterned holes, which give off a lovely design when the LED lights are on.

The BPA-free water tank has a capacity of 3.38 ounces (100ml) and once it runs out of water, the unit shuts off automatically. This prevents overheating.

There are two mist settings: intermittent or continuous. On the intermittent mode, the diffuser disperses mist for 30 seconds, then stops for 30 seconds, before resuming mist dispersion.

On the continuous mode, the run time is up to 4 hours while on the intermittent mode the run time is up to 8 hours before needing to refill the water tank.

The LED light features 7 colors. There is the option to leave the lights fixed on a particular color, or rotating through all 7 colors. You can also leave the light off and still have the diffuser operating.


Dimensions: 10.3 x 5.2 x 5.2 inches

Warranty: 45-day money back guarantee and 12-months limited warranty

Accessories: adapter, user manual and refill cup.






Anjou Ceramic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser 100ml

The Anjou ceramic essential oil diffuser is a stylishly designed diffuser that blends in well with different décor styles. This doesn’t look like a typical essential oil diffuser!

The water tank is made of plastic, and has a capacity of 3.38 ounces (100ml). It’s great to use in a small room or space.

There are two mist options: intermittent or continuous. On the intermittent mode, run time is up to 9 hours. Pressing the mist button once switches the diffuser on. Pressing the button a second time puts the diffuser on intermittent mode. Pressing the button a third time puts the diffuser on continuous mode.

Once the water level is low, the unit shuts off automatically to prevent overheating of the diffuser. There is no indicator beep when the water runs out, which is great if you don’t want to be woken up during the night!

The Anjou ceramic diffuser has an LED light with 7 different colors, which can either rotate through all of the colors or you can choose to fix the light on your favorite color.

There is also the option to switch off the LED light while the diffuser still continues to operate. Simply hold the light button for a couple of seconds and the LED light will switch off.  But as with all of the oil diffusers, the button light cannot be switched off- it remains on while the diffuser is on.


Dimensions: 3.4 x 3.4 x 6.3 inches

Accessories: 1 x power adapter, 1 x measuring cup, 1 x user guide

Warranty: 18-month limited warranty




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.

Mist Settings

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.

In conclusion

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!
