What is an ultrasonic diffuser?
It's a device that turns water into vapour without using any heat through a process known as “cold diffusion”. It does this with a mist chip which vibrates the water at such a high rate, that the water molecules diffuse into water vapour and are dispersed into the air.
So what does it even do for me?
Here’s the cool part. If you pour in a few drops of essential oils into the water inside your unit, the diffuser now dispenses the natural scents into the air for you to breathe, refreshing and calming your mind much like a walk through the woods minus all the dirt and twigs. Also keeps your home smelling fresh which is a huge plus.
OK, how exactly does it help me relax?
The essential oils used with your diffuser are 100% pure plant extracts with distinct scents that remind us of being outdoors in nature, a natural mind relaxant. When you breathe them in, the organic aromas are picked up by your sense of smell where they carry signals to the limbic system, or the “emotional centre of the brain”. Here your brain links sense perceptions with the feeling of calmness associated with that sense (i.e. a certain smell) and releases neurotransmitters that make you experience that feeling. It's proven science, what can we say?
When should I use it?
Anytime really. We suggest using your diffuser on your nightstand while you sleep or at your desk while you work during the day. Give it a shot in your living room to let everyone in your home experience it or in the bedroom for a nice meditation session.
Does it light up?
Yes it sure does. You can set the unit to cycle through all colours, gradually fading from one colour to the other or lock to a single colour to set the mood right. If you're not a fan of lights or simply need to get some rest, you may always run the unit with the lights off.
What sort of timer settings does it have?
The unit has 4 timer settings: 1 hour, 3 hours, interval (on for 15 seconds, off for 15 seconds until it runs out of water), and On which runs continuously until the tank is dry. Auto shut off prevents the unit from running once the tank is empty!
Will it make my table wet?
If the unit is left on high mode for longer periods of time, the vapour clouds may condense into water on the surrounding area - we call this the "diffuser dew"! We have 3 ways you can avoid this dew:
1. If you're running it for extended periods of time, choose a lower mist setting so that the vapour doesn't pour down the sides as much.
2. If you would like to leave it on the high setting, please use the included removable mist cover to narrow the mist into a straight line stream.
3. If you love cloud mode on the high setting too much, set your unit to the INT timer mode so that it periodically turns on and off to avoid dew formation!
I got mine and there isn’t enough mist coming out, how do I make it thicker?
Filling the diffuser up too much (e.g. past the Max fill line) reduces the free space inside the unit where the clouds build momentum and may cause the mist to come out a little thinner at first. Be sure to not fill the unit all the way to the brim and to also let it run for 20-30 minutes so that it has a chance to warm up.
