Ah, who doesn't love the sweet smell of lavender? Probably quite a few people. Some of us associate it with the smell of our grandmother's perfume, but lavender's not the only aroma that the DoTerra Aroma-Ace will diffuse throughout a room. Others include the hypnotic smell of eucalyptus and the tropical smell of oranges -- and those are just the essential oil aromas that DoTerra sells for use with the machine. It should work with essential oils from other companies too.
Aromatic oil diffusers come in two varieties, nebulizers and ultrasound units, both of which break droplets of oil, often mixed with water, into tiny particles that float in the air. The DoTerra Aroma-Ace is a nebulizer and doesn't require water. (This means that it won't also function as a humidifier, the way competing units like the Serene House Scentilizer Donut will.) Some users complain that the Aroma-Ace goes through its essential oil supply too rapidly, though this apparently depends on whether you have it set to high or low diffusion and whether you've gotten a defective model that leaks oil onto the table underneath it. (You might want to check this out right away so that you can get a refund.) The Aroma-Ace uses "cold diffusion" technology, which DoTerra claims preserves the natural essence of aromatic oils.
Although the Aroma-Ace won't function as a humidifier, it's good for aromatherapy, the use of certain odors to change the user's mood. Whether this will convert a bad mood into a good one probably depends on how bad the mood is in the first place, but the aroma of eucalyptus could certainly brighten a day that's on the tipping point between pleasant and awful. Other aromas in DoTerra's line-up include Fractionated Coconut Oil and -- we have no idea what this actually smells like -- Slim & Sassy Metabolic Blend. (There are no guarantees that this will change your metabolism to make you slim and/or sassy.)
I love that you can change the settings on it from how long it runs to the amount of time it goes before running again.
If you don't use it continually, it clogs and is difficult to clean. It can leak, so you need a dish underneath it.
It has a built-in air filtration feature that keeps the dust out while cleaning the air. Love it!
The diffuser uses state of the art technology and is easy to use. It doesn’t need any water like ultrasonic diffusers and provides flexibility and convenience to run all day.
