The SpaRoom Aromamist is an ultrasonic essential oil diffuser. And if you have to ask what that is, you've probably stumbled into the wrong section of this website. An ultrasonic oil diffuser uses ultrasonic waves to break essential aromatic oils into a fine mist that floats in the air. You can use it to make a room smell really good or to practice aromatherapy, whichever you like. (Actually, they may amount to the same thing. )The Aromamist looks a bit like a short, fat Amazon Echo that changes colors to produce ambient lighting, which can be set to generate a revolving rainbow of hues that, in a dimly lit room, may produce a kind of chromatherapy. (NOTE: Neither aromatherapy nor chromatherapy have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as being of therapeutic benefit. End of disclaimer.)
Essential aromatic oils are extracted from plants and, when released into the air as a cloud of tiny droplets, usually produce pleasing aromas, though this may depend on what type of plant the aromatic oil was extracted from. (It seems unlikely that anyone would extract aromatic oils from garlic, except perhaps for use at Italian restaurants.) You need to add a half cup of tap water to the Aromamist to aid in its ultrasonic diffusing, a process that some competing manufacturers claim dilutes the odor. However, claims made by competitors should usually be taken with a grain of salt -- or in this case a drop of aromatic salt oil.
The Aromamist comes with a bundle of fragrant oils as well as Klenzor Diffuser Cleansing Capsules, so that the device won't mix yesterday's fragrant aroma with today's aroma of choice. That half cup of water will produce up to three hours of mood-elevating scents, so if you want more you'll have to go back to the tap (and probably add some more oils). Some people use ultrasonic diffusers in place of humidifiers, though note that the ultrasound makes a noise, which you may or may not find annoying. Then again, the sound of the Aromamist may be pleasant to go to sleep by, if you like sleeping in an aromatic mist.
For a different kind of essential oil diffuser, one that uses a nebulizer rather than ultrasound to produce its aromatic mist, look at the Smiley Daisy Gardenia.
This diffuser is awesome. The lights are great as they change color and add a bit of zen to my nighttime.
This product is terrible. It doesn't last long at all. The first 5 minutes it's great but after that the scent was gone
It's hard to explain, but it felt amazing.More than just the cool, fresh feeling you get from a regular humidifier. It was a deeper soothing.
This is my first diffuser that I liked enough to bring to my office! I am so happy with this purchase!
I use it almost everyday. It's easy to operate, and I love being able to change the color of it.
Though the humidifier is the size I pretty much thought it would be, It doesn't do at all what I thought it would.
