We provide diffusers in Singapore including reed diffuser, essential oil diffuser, aroma diffuser and scent diffuser. Many homeowners in Singapore are turning to reed diffuser and essential oil diffusers in their homes. It’s a no-brainer that creating a pleasant and inviting atmosphere at home is essential for our overall well-being. Who doesn’t love a nice smell welcoming them when entering the home? The truth is scents play a significant role in improving mental and physical health.
If you're new to the world of aromatherapy and want to introduce scents into your home, this guide consolidated by the home experts at Lulu Home is here to help. Here, we'll explore various factors to consider when choosing an essential oil diffuser, and what are the common types available in Singapore you can choose from.
For the uninitiated, an essential oil diffuser is a device designed to disperse the aroma of essential oils into the air, creating a pleasant and therapeutic atmosphere.
There are several different methods and hence different devices that can be used for this dispersion which we will discuss in more detail later.
Essential oil diffusers are not one size fits all. So, to find the right fit for your home needs, you’ll need to consider several factors:
Where you are planning use the diffuser will make a difference. Smaller areas like your bathroom, bedrooms, or study rooms can benefit from passive diffusers, while larger spaces like your living room may require electronic diffusers to help disperse the scent effectively over larger spaces with more airflow.
Think about the intensity of the scent you prefer. If you prefer a more subtle aroma, passive diffusers are a better choice as they naturally spread the scent throughout the room. On the other hand, electronic diffusers offer more control and can provide a stronger and more intense scent if desired.
Electronic diffusers often have motors that inevitably generate some noise during operation. If you're looking for a tranquil environment, consider whether the diffuser's noise level will suit your preferences.
Some diffusers, such as tealight or warming diffusers, use heat to disperse the essential oils. However, it's important to note that heat can potentially alter the chemical composition of the oils and may pose fire hazards.
Tip: If you have small children in the house, do evaluate whether a heating component aligns with your safety concerns in the home.
If you plan to move the diffuser around your home, portability becomes a crucial factor. Choose a diffuser that is lightweight and easy to relocate as needed. Some electronic diffusers may come in larger frames and hence not as portable as their passive counterparts.
Consider the amount of time and effort you're willing to invest in maintaining the diffuser. Some diffusers require regular cleaning and topping up, while others can operate for longer periods without intervention.
Electronic diffusers often come with additional features like timers, auto-switch-off functions, or adjustable settings. Assess whether these features are necessary for your needs (and hence the higher price tag) or if a simpler diffuser would suffice.
Diffusers are available at a range of prices, from affordable passive diffusers to more expensive electronic models. Determine your budget and choose a diffuser that offers the right balance of functionality and affordability.
A type of electronic diffuser uses water and ultrasonic vibrations to create a fine mist of essential oil particles. They not only disperse the scent but also act as humidifiers, adding moisture to the air. A two-in-one device if you ask us!
This type of diffuser normally also comes with some of the fanciest features and settings (with a corresponding price tag) that allow you to adjust the intensity of aroma, set the duration of usage and more. However, one of the biggest downsides is the requirement for regular maintenance to prevent oil deposits.
A type of electronic diffuser that utilizes an air pump to disperse essential oils through an atomizer, creating extremely small particles that remain chemically unchanged (like the ultrasonic diffuser).
As such, these diffusers cover more area per square foot and maximize the scent of essential oils. However, similarly, maintenance is required to prevent the clogging of electronic parts and they are usually more expensive due to the technology.
Employs heat, either through candles or an electronic heating source, to evaporate essential oils into the air. However, while these diffusers are simple and affordable, they may alter the chemical composition of the oils and pose fire risks.
Utilize simple evaporation facilitated by a fan to spread the scent across larger areas. They are affordable and suitable for scenting larger rooms but may produce noise due to the fan motor.
The most basic and affordable type, evaporative diffusers disperse essential oils naturally through an evaporative surface, such as reed sticks. They are easy to set up, portable, and ideal for small spaces.
