I have been given this product as part of a product review through Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
In my home, I am a stickler about not bringing chemical scents into the house. They
have always upset my daughter's allergies/eczema and just made breathing in general more difficult. Some people find this a little irritating/picky, but the longer you are without chemicals in your laundry, cleaning supplies, cosmetics, and perfumes, the more aware you are of their negative affects on your body. When living with an autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, I feel it is important to eliminate any outside force working against my body that I have the ability to control. Saying that, I do enjoy beautiful scents. For this reason, I am a huge supporter of essential oils. Essential oils are a natural way to not only bring beautiful fragrances into your home, but also to use scents that have therapeutic properties. Lavendar is one I use often when life is crazy and I need to relax. I like it at night too. It's calming properties prepare me for a good night's sleep. When I am sick, I always turn to peppermint or eucalyptus. A diffuser of one of these two essential oils next to your bed at night makes sleeping much gentler when you have a cold. During the day I use sweet orange or lemon when cleaning. They pep me up a bit. According to Organic Aromas' website, sweet orange has both antidepressant and antiseptic properties. No wonder it is perfect for cleaning days. My diffuser came with an essential oil blend that is very pleasing! Over the years I have tried several different diffusers. For years I used ones that required a burning candle. Last Christmas I received a water based electric diffuser that until now, I thought was the best. When I received my Organic Aromas diffuser in the mail, I instantly noticed the differences. First of all, it is simply beautiful. The base is wood (you can have hand-carved bases made) with blown glass that sits on top. Unlike the diffuser I have been using made of plastic that is also lightweight, this one is solid but not heavy. With my clumsy rheumatoid arthritis fingers, I have tipped over my plastic one more than once. The Organic Aromas diffuser is much different. It is made to firmly sit on a counter-top or desk. It even has a little gripper pad on the bottom. And best of all, no water is required. Just add essential oil, plug it in, and it is ready to go. It is stunning at night with its small LED lighting that changes colors. It would definitely be an attractive piece to add to an office, bedroom, bathroom, spa, or in my case, the kitchen.
As we approach the gift giving season, this would be a very nice present to share with someone special. If the price scares you off, I want to share something else I really like about Organic Aromas. When I received my first diffuser in the mail via Amazon, it didn't feel like it was misting as it should. I contacted Organic Aromas through email and was pleasantly surprised to receive an email back almost immediately. The email assured me that they back their product 100%. They asked me to follow a few simple steps so they could figure out what the problem was with my diffuser. After a few quick emails, it was determined that I needed a new diffuser which was sent out immediately. I have a lot of respect for retailers that work with the customer to satisfaction. When the new diffuser arrived in the mail, my family and I noticed the difference immediately.
