Review of Essential Oil Diffusers – Plus diffuser seasonal recipes

I’ve been heavily using essential oils for over 4 years now and have gone through quite a few diffusers. Below is a review of the ones I have used, I didn’t realize how long my list was until I started writing them all out!


Riverrock Diffuser 100ml –  $24
This one I ordered by mistake. I wanted a small battery operated one for my bathroom for the holidays and I ordered this thinking it was battery operated. Turns out it wasn’t battery operated but that it that it makes a great travel diffuser! I used this on my last trip and it’s flat so it packs really well in my suitcase. It’s also a great size for a hotel room. It runs for about 4-5 hours and the shallow bay makes it easy to get at for cleaning. The band changes color and is actually nice, it’s not as obnoxious as the photo shows.

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars –     


InnoGear Diffuser 100ml –  $17.85
This one I ordered for my RV. It didn’t last very long and would run all night but yet wouldn’t go through all the water. I accidentally order this one again a year later and I had the same troubles with the second unit. I would not recommend this one.

I rate this one 1 out of 5 stars – 



Smiley Daisy Diffuser 350ml –  $39.97
This one I got on an Amazon lightening deal for only $29 and the one I have has a wood grain. I am impressed at how long this one has lasted, it’s been in my daughter’s room for over a year. This is another one that is very easy to clean and is perfect for a bedroom. The only down fall to this one is the top is sometimes a little difficult to get off to fill, there are no notches so you have to grab it from the hole in the top.

I rate this one 4.5 out of 5 stars –    


URPOWER diffuserURPOWER 500ml –  $23.99
This is one that I purchased for my son’s room. I wanted one that would run pretty much all night and this one does. It holds 500ml of water and has a setting that you can run it till it runs out. We have been using this one for over 2 years now and it still works great. It works great as a night light also, you can turn the light off if you perfer. The large opening is great for easy cleaning.

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars –     



Young Living Aria –  $296 retail – $225 Wholesale
This is my newest diffuser and is the Cadillac of diffusers! This one comes with a remote and many settings. You can diffuse for 1-3 hours. This diffuser also comes with many light settings as well as music that is amazing for meditation, you can also plug in your music device and play your own.

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars –     


Young Living Dew Drop –  $83.88 retail – $63.75 Wholesale
This is the diffuser that I currently have in my office. This one is a perfect starter diffuser and probably the reason it comes in Young Living’s Starter kit. This one can be used as a humidifier, atomizer, and aroma diffuser. It will run up to 4 hours at a time and can be ran with or without the light on.

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars –     


Young Living Bamboo Diffuser –  $111.51 retail – $84.75 Wholesale
This is the diffuser that I had in our bedroom before I got the Aria. This was great but I found it hard to clean. I love the look of this one but the water container area is slim and it’s hard to get in there to clean it, and that is why I only give it 4 stars.

I rate this one 4 out of 5 stars –    


Young Living Dessert Mist Diffuser–  $83.88 retail – $63.75 Wholesale
This is Young Living’s newest diffuser, I got this one last June during convention and it quickly became one of my favorites. I wasn’t to excited about it’s look until I saw it lit and it’s quite pretty. It even has a function were it can flicker yellow like a candle, this setting is my favorite! This one will also run 8-10 hours and has 11 different light settings!

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars –     


Young Living USB Orb Diffuser–  $33.88 retail – $25.75 Wholesale
This is one is perfect for the car! I used to use this for when I was traveling but it’s a little small to do a whole hotel room so now it’s pretty much used for road trips. It’s great because it seals and you can tip it without it spilling. This diffuser is also perfect for when you are sitting at your desktop or laptop working.

I rate this one 5 out of 5 stars –     


So there you have all the diffusers that I have owned. If you need help ordering one of the Young Living Diffusers please let me know. What’s your favorite?

    I just bought the portable orb diffuser less than a month ago and the rubber seal expanded and is too big. I contacted Young Living and I had to then contact the manufacturer in order to work with them to get it replaced which did not make me happy. I put it back together as I use it at work and didn’t want to spill the water and oil everywhere but then it leaked and I can’t get it back open. I feel that young living should handle first before us having to do all the leg work on something that is defective.

      Young Living has always been great working with me on any issue, if the orb was within the year it will be still under warranty. You can also contact your enroller and they should be able to help you.
