The Trillia MINA 3 wooden oil diffuser looks like a stylish candle holder and should fit nicely into the decor of your living room or bedroom. And, like a candle holder with a scented candle burning inside, it will make the room smell better. It's carved out of a single block of wood, a bit of carpentry and glass-blowing craftsmanship that helps justify its price tag, and it comes in assorted lacquered colors, including Dream Pink and plain, old-fashioned White. It uses a nebulizer to break scented oils down into particles that can spread over a room as large as 1,200 square feet, if the air pump is set on the highest of its four speeds.
The MINA 3 releases aromas in one-minute bursts over a two-hour period, while its LED lighting casts a softly colored ambience over the room, like a lava lamp with aromatic lava. Unlike competitors, Trillia doesn't market its own line of essential, aromatic oils, but it should work with the wide variety of oils sold by other aromatheraphy companies, so you can have your living room smelling like Eucalyptus or Happy Days in no time at all. (The naming conventions of aromatic oils are somewhat odd, often describing how you're supposed to feel after you release the oils into the air. However, most of them just make the house smell better, with mood correction optional.)
The MINA 3 is essentially -- no pun intended -- an aromatherapy device and a designer home accessory in one. It plugs into a standard outlet or even a USB port. The latter should be useful, given the ubiquity of USB charging ports on modern power strips. (Or maybe you just want to put it next to your computer.) You don't need to put water in the MINA 3, so you won't get any humidifying benefits out of it. For a unit that will serve your humidifying needs even while it's making the air smell like tropical flowers and fruits, take a look at the Miro CleanPot, which is both a designer accessory and fully washable by hand in the sink. (Don't put it in the dishwasher.) For another nebulizing unit, one that's not quite as attractive as the MINA, try the DoTerra Aroma-Ace.
I love this diffuser! I always have essential oils diffusing in every room of my house.
The top cap collects so much oil that the oil seeps down the outside of the glass and will collect under the glass where it connects to the wood base.
