In addition to its great look it also has a LED night light that displays seven colors. You can chose to have the colors rotate or you may pause it on the color that you find most soothing or which best fits your mood.
Anypro Cool Mist Humidifier Diffuser for Aromatherapy
Many of these units come with LED lights. However, with this one from Anypro the light feature is wide enough that you get the full effect of the light and it appears as if the entire unit has totally changed color. At the same time it does not appear to be an unattractive plastic light fixture when it’s not in use, as the lighting panel sits in the middle of the wood grain finished unit. You can choose to have the colors in constant rotation or you may choose to select a particular color.
This diffuser has a timed setting feature. It allows you to select from one, three, or six hours, after which it will shut itself off, giving you the freedom of choosing how long you need the unit to run. You can also choose to leave it on continuous mode where it will run until the water runs out; then it will shut off automatically.
Portable Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser Review
The unit is very compact, which makes it easy to move from room to room or to spaces outside of the home like the office or any enclosed space in which its use would be appropriate. It also has a very long cord which makes placement anywhere in a room easy, and if it falls, customers report, it’s pretty hardy and remains intact.
Great Price Point
The cost of this unit makes it an attractive option, but don’t think that you would be sacrificing quality for price. The unit is attractive, sturdy, and works well so you won’t feel as if you are missing out on anything.

After a stress filled day, you can relax with the aid of this unit, water, and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. You can also use this unit to target other specific problems.

Why I personally like to use this diffuser that it has a powerful misting function so I can lift my spirits after a tough day by diffusing my favorite oils, especially lemongrass. I find that the InnoGear diffuser does a great job in dispersing the oils into the air and I immediately begin to unwind.

TOTU Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Humidifier Review
Lights in and of themselves are known to provide therapeutic benefits for several conditions. While the manufacturers would never say that the lights on this unit will clear up any specific condition, the rainbow lights here do provide a soothing effect that complements the experience of the diffuser.
Best Value for Money
Reviewers rave about the price of this product relative the high quality performance received. It’s one of the lower-cost units on the market, yet it performs just as well or better that some of its higher priced counterparts. It’s whisper-quiet operation and the ability to set it to operate continuously or intermittently are some of the nice touches on this affordable unit.
Calily Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser Review
Designed for Control
Control your Calily Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser Aromatherapy from up to 20 feet away. With its sleek and smooth prism-like shape the diffuser really lights up a room as it changes various colors. You can control the color settings by interchanging between “soft color changing”, “fixed at one color”, or just “off”. This diffuser can run for up to 6 hours and effectively covers up to 250 sq. ft. Just fill it with warm tap water and you are ready to go – no need for filtered water.
Quiet and Safe Diffuser
This diffuser is designed to be whisper quiet, allowing the atmosphere to be pleasant, silent, and relaxing with no noise, bubbling sounds, humming, heat, or vibration – just peace and silence. It can be used in any room of your choice and would not disturb anyone. It is also perfectly safe to touch even when it is on, as it uses non-heat, ultrasonic waves. This diffuser also turns off automatically whenever the water runs low, so you don’t have to worry about it burning anyone or running while you sleep or step out of the room for a bit. So it’s very safe if you have children around.
The health benefits are also really good. The Calily Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser uses non-heat ultrasonic waves that preserve the healing properties of your favorite oils. I find that it uniformly and steadily releases mists of soothing swirls, even distributing the fragrance in the air. This diffuser can also act as a humidifier, simply by not adding oil.
VicTsing Mini Electric with Auto Off Function
Classic Wood Grain
Most of this unit is in a very nice, classic wood grain finish that will go well with many different types of home and office decor. It appearance is quite elegant and it doesn’t scream diffuser from a mile away, so I guess you could say it is also discreet. Whether it is discreet or not may be debatable, but I think most people would agree that this is a very beautiful design.
Safe and Easy to Use
This diffuser is very safe. The only buttons on the unit are to turn it off and adjust the light settings. It’s cool to the touch so it can even be used in rooms with children and pets around. Should it run out of water while in operation, it will shut itself off automatically; therefore, there is no fire hazard. Get up to 8 hours of safe and serene mist time with this user-friendly unit.
Now Foods Ultrasonic Wood Grain Oil Diffuser
The shape of this diffuser is somewhere between the curves on a woman and those on lily petals – either way it has a very soft and sensual quality about it. I would almost put it in the category of art instead of appliance, but in the end it cannot be denied that it is a device with a purpose. If you are going to have a diffuser in your personal space, such as a bedroom, it might just as well look like this one. This beautiful unit will look good in and enhance the look of just about any environment.
No Heat Element
There is absolutely no risk of burns or any heat-related damage when you use this diffuser from Now Foods, as it doesn’t actually use any heat. This also means that it is able to keep the integrity of the essential oils that you use with it more than a unit that does use a heating element. You will get a safe and more authentic aromatherapy experience when you use this NOW Food Ultrasonic diffuser.
URBST 300ml Aromatherapy Diffuser with Waterless Automatic Shut-Off
Both lighted diffusers and wooden diffusers have recently become very popular and this URBST unit has the best of both worlds. The result of combining these two styles is a machine that looks really good, at least I think so. The wood is the perfect background for the LED lights and it also lends itself quite nicely to the nature theme that is often preferred in aromatherapy.
This diffuser weighs less than 2 pounds so it is extremely portable. This means that you will be able to take it with you on the go and continue to enjoy the benefits of essential oils even when you are away from home. You can easily pack it in your luggage when you are going on trips – just remember to empty out any water!

This unit has been known to help with stress and anxiety, your focus, your sleep, headaches, and depressions. It also helps with dry skin, chapped lips, and dry sinuses.

Calily Eternity with Relaxing & Soothing Multi-Color LED Light
Sleep in comfort
This diffuser will offer you the best sleep you will get with a humidifier or diffuser in the house. It features a whisper-quiet operation designed to be quiet and pleasant. I am talking about absolutely no noise, vibrations, or heat. Put Calily Eternity on your bedside table right next to you and you would not even know it is there if you do not see it. It is the perfect night light as its multi-color display throws an ample yet soothing glow. LED lights swish you away into sweet relaxation. The lights dim enough to allow you to fall asleep but are bright enough for you to see your way around the room.

Calily Eternity does not only depend on the mood enhancing lights to relax you. The mist itself takes you to a place of peace and allows you to set just the right environment for you to thrive. No fading effect – just the fragrance you desire.

It is an essential home and office health guard especially during the cold and flu seasons. It is perfect for the nursery to help your little ones breathe easy and eliminate the dry air from around them while keeping them bacteria and germ free.
This is one of the most elegant designs I have seen for a diffuser or humidifier.

Bluefire will uplift your spirits and treat your body and mind with aromatherapy. You will be happy you got it and then you are going to want one for everyone you know. I know I did. The BlueFire electric ultrasonic humidifier and aroma diffuser does not heat the oil so all the essential oils your body needs to absorb will be preserved.
URPOWER Wood Grain Ultrasonic Cool Aromatherapy
Urpower offers over 10 hours of operation on a full tank of water, the best part is it automatically shuts off when the water has run out, ensuring safety. It comes with a light only or mist only feature. At the press of a button you can choose whether you would like seven beautiful LED colors changing automatically or just the mist without the light. This feature is great for a bedroom night setting, a relaxing bath after a hard day, or entertainment for the kids as they fall asleep.
This is a versatile diffuser that is great for your home, spa, office, entertainment space, or even mediation sessions. Its nature-inspired theme helps you to relax and breathe easily. It does not dilute or eliminate the minerals you would hope to receive from the essential oils; instead it preserves them while purifying the air and offering you a sweet comfortable setting.
Q-YEE Cool Mist Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser
People who have trouble sleeping can benefit greatly from the use of an aromatherapy diffuser like this one from Q-Yee. It is also a good option for anyone who just wants to enjoy deeper, more restful sleep at night. I imagine every night will feel like you are falling asleep in a spa when you have one of these units in your bedroom.
Auto Shut Down
Safety is always a huge concern when it comes to using electronic appliances like essential oil diffusers. This Q-Yee diffuser has a great safety feature that I really like. When the water in the machine runs out it will shut down automatically. This is definitely a great feature to have, as a diffuser that is operation for hours without any water is a huge safety risk.
Aickar Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser Review
Refill Oil in Silence
The package includes a cup to fill and refill the tank. Once the recommended amount of oil and water is poured into the tank, the diffuser is turned on and the misting starts. Though there is a little hushed bubbling sound the diffuser is quite peaceful. Once the water runs too low the diffuser will automatically turn off and the refill indicator light will turn on, letting you know it’s time for more. It also has a timer for those times when you don’t want to keep it running for the entire day. It can be set to turn off after 60 minutes, 120 minutes, or 180 minutes, or you can set it to continue until the water runs out.
There are two mist settings on the diffuser for you to choose between – there is the high mist and then there is the low mist. The diffuser allows you to decide if you want the mist to be released consistently or only periodically. So while you play around with that setting, I must remind you that your fragrance is only as strong as the amount of oil you put in, and the bigger the room the less you will smell the oil. While it won’t cater to the entire house, the bedroom, bathroom, or even office is a good place to have it.
Homasy Essential Diffuser with One Touch Button Control
Silent Yet Effective
The silent and uniquely designed humidifier is easy to use and portable. After pouring a maximum amount of 800ml water in the water tank and adding up to 5 drops of your favorite essential oils, you can get up to 10 hours of usage and enough mist for a room no larger than 161 sq.ft. Sometimes you may find the essence to be too flat or too strong, that is dependent on how much of the oil you put in it as it evenly distributes the mist over time.
Simple and Safe
There aren’t many buttons in this design; in fact there is only one main button for easy control of the mist and the night light attached. The safety feature also automatically turns of the humidifier once the water is too low, allowing you to relax and be worry free. It can be used in just about any room in your house that you can think of or even in your office space, and only needs to be plugged in and turned on once water and oils are in the tank.
Refreshes and Moisturizes
This humidifier not only refreshes the atmosphere of your home or office but it also rejuvenates your skin. Yes, it also acts a moisturizer to keep your skin fresh and soft. The Homasy Essential Oil Diffuser Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier, unlike most other humidifiers and diffusers, releases its mist in a soft and uniformed way, allowing it to be evenly distributed in the room. However, there is still one extra cool feature – you can decide if you want the mist to go in a particular direction or not. Sometimes you may find the essence to be too flat or too strong, depending on how much of the oil you put in it as it evenly distributes the mist over time.
VicTsing Aromatherapy Cool Mist Humidifier
Effective and Worry-Free
If you are planning to have a relaxing or romantic evening or simply desire for a real-time spa feel, this is the humidifier for you. It surely did the trick for me. The instructions are clear – just add the recommended amount of water and 2 to 5 drops of your favorite oils. It can be used in any room or office space, it is easy to operate and you don’t have to worry about falling asleep or forgetting about it. Its safety features allow it to turn off once the water inside gets too low. The water capacity is approximately 280ml and allows for up to 18 hours of usage without having to worry about refilling it.

This VicTsing aromatherapy cool mist humidifier creates a cool, healing vapor which moisturizes the air using ultrasonic pulsating waves, thus promoting a healthy lifestyle. The diffuser can run in two modes. Mode one allows it to run for up to 3 minutes, taking a 1-minute break, and mode two allows it to continually run until the water is low enough to trigger the auto-off safety feature.
Riverock Essential Oil Diffusers by Deneve
The Riverock Essential Oil Diffuser is an ultrasonic aromatherapy, cold oil diffuser designed to keep you calm as you relax after a long day, meditate, or partake in a session of yoga. The diffuser is light, easy to use, and pleasing to handle with its soft touch exterior. It also comes equipped with wrap-around multi-colored LED lights incorporated in its design and can be turned on and off according to the preference of the user.
The package also includes a measuring cup for the purpose of measuring the water to oil ratio. Though there is no on or off buttons on the body of the diffuser and you would have to press the body itself various times, you don’t have worry about falling asleep with it on. Once the liquid is finished the diffuser turns off.
Less Stress, No mess
This oil diffuser, unlike other diffusers and humidifiers, leaves little to no vapor marks on your hard surfaces, thus making it the perfect no mess diffuser – less for me to clean up. When filled with water at full capacity you can get up to 5 hours of usage within a 250 sq. ft. coverage.
One of the best features is that it is virtually quiet, making only a very soft gurgling noise. As with any ultrasonic diffuser the cleaning process is similar and not time-consuming. After use, empty the diffuser and use a mild soap or vinegar and water solution. It is recommended that this be done on a weekly basis.

Whether you like your mist to be weak or strong, with this diffuser you can have it just the way you like it at just a push of a button.
LED Colored lighting
One of the features I like best on this unit is that it allows a color transition between seven different colors fitted for setting the mood and the environment that is just right for you. Colors inspired by nature offer a calm and relaxing feel; you may have to remind yourself that you are not outside in the open air.
