Nebulizing oil diffuser for aromatherapy
Nebulizing diffusers are not as popular as ultrasonic diffusers, maybe because they are slightly more expensive. They are however, much better at delivering therapeutic levels of your essential oils than ultrasonic diffusers. This is because ultrasonic diffusers use water to diffuse the oils into the air, which dilutes the essential oils and reduces their effectiveness.
You can imagine that if you dilute 10 or 20 drops of the oil in 300ml of water, that whilst you might still have a beautiful fragrance, the efficacy of the oils is greatly reduced. So if you want to use your essential oil diffuser simply to add beautiful perfumes to your home, then an ultrasonic diffuser is fine.
On the other hand, if you want to de-stress, treat a headache or boost your immune system, for example, then you need to use a nebulizing oil diffuser.
With the Smiley Daisy nebulizer you have three different timer options, so you can set it to diffuse for 30 minutes, 60 minutes or 160 minutes. This gives you plenty of options to diffuse your 100% essential oils into the air, giving you the maximum benefit of their therapeutic value.
Adjustable mist flows
Once you have selected the length of time to diffuse your oils, you can then decide whether you want a low, medium or high diffusion rate.
Then set the misting interval rate for 5 sec, 10, sec, 30 sec or 60 seconds and you can see that this diffuser is completely customization. You have lots of different combinations available so you can customize the diffusion of your essential oils to suit your needs.
Auto shut off feature
For safety, the diffuser switches itself off once the timer has ended, so it will turn off after 30 mins, 60 mins or 120 minutes. You can reset it to diffuse again at this point, just check to see if there is sufficient oil in the bottle first.
There is no noise level given for this nebulizing oil diffuser, but it does tend to make a slight buzzing or purring noise when it is operating. It is not enough to be annoying, even at night, particularly when many people like to fall asleep to a fan noise (it is much quieter than a fan).
There are not any mood enhancing LED lights as in other diffusers, but there is a lovely blue light that runs around the bottom of the diffuser and the top control buttons are also lit in blue.
Easy to use
The Gardenia nebulizing oil diffuser is pretty easy to use, once you get your head around the different setting options.
First of all, you need to remove the lid of the diffuser and lift out the adapter inside. Then screw your 10ml essential oil bottle into the adapter, place it inside the diffuser and replace the lid.
Next, you need to plug it in and turn the power switch on (the middle button). Then select the timer, misting intensity and the intervals.
Hardly any customer has a bad word to say about this nebulizing diffuser with customers loving the high quality of this diffuser, its sleek and compact look and the fact that it can customized so easily.
Points to note about the Gardenia nebulizing oil diffuser
You need to use 100% pure essential oils with a nebulizing oil diffuser, so that means no carrier oils at oil. This is because these thick oils can clog the unit and also because this diffuser is meant to deliver pure essential oils, not diluted oils.
FYI: This diffuser does not turn off if your essential oil bottle becomes empty, so you need to make sure that the bottle is fairly full before you start diffusing.
If you live in an area that is very humid or damp, then a nebulizing diffuser is much better than an ultrasonic diffuser, because it doesn’t emit any humidity into the air, it simply diffuses 100% essential oils.
My final thoughts on the Gardenia nebulizing oil diffuser
The Gardenia nebulizing oil diffuser is very versatile and is fully customizable. You can select the length of time to diffuse the essential oils, the strength of the mist and the intervals between each misting.
This diffuser is made of metal with metal buttons and a hard plastic lid, so it is very durable and feels very sturdy. It is nice and shiny and looks really sleek and professional in your home or office. If you want a high quality nebulizing oil diffuser, then this model by Smiley Daisy is good value and built to last.
