​CONS:

  • ​Sometimes it's a little tricky to carefully twist the top on and off to fill it. TIP … Do not completely twist the diffuser closed, only twist it until you BEGIN to feel the resistance and STOP.

​VERDICT:

The URPOWER Aroma Essential Oil Cool Mist Humidifier Diffuser is extremely easy to use. When you first use it, you just need to plug the cord into the base, then fill it with water, and refill when needed. The top pops off easily.

It includes a clearly written, very thorough instruction booklet as even though it only has two buttons, the light button and the power button, people have questions about the operation, the maintenance, or like to keep handy a troubleshooting list.

​URPOWER is a consistently good company, with well-made products, from my experience. They include a one-year warranty with this model, which I'm sure they'd stand behind.

URPOWER Aroma Essential Oil Cool Mist Humidifier Diffuser

This beautifully styled ultrasonic Urpower diffuser really pumps out the mist and it has a lot of interesting features that I have found unique to this model. If you are comparing diffusers, trying to make up your mind, here's some points you might want to consider with this model.

First off, it has a warning sound for low water level, power up, and so on. Many diffusers don't come with a measuring cup for the water, URPOWER's diffuser has one. It might seem like a small point, until you have unplugged the wire from your diffuser, to go to the sink to get water, about 100 times.

The LED nightlight function, provides a lot of different choices, for the light's color and intensity. When you click the LIGHT button, it toggles thru ... kaleidoscope colors, constantly morphing thru the rainbow ... dark red - bright red - dark blue - bright blue - dark yellow, and so on, including white, until it finally turns the light back off.

So, you can select morphing colors, or find your favorite color, or even chose the color for some "light healing" that corresponds to the essential oil you are evaporating. (Peppermint is green, Orange oil is orange, Lavender is violet, Rose is red, Eucalyptus is blue.... I'm sure you see where I'm going with this.

URPOWER Aroma Essential Oil Cool Mist Humidifier Diffuser Light Modes

The power button has a startup mode, with a green indicator light, and an operational mode, with a red indicator. If the unit runs dry, it powers off. So, no need to worry what will happen if it runs out of water during the night. Nothing happens, it just turns off.

I have used both high grade pure essential oils and those with lesser grade and the scents and fragrances can fill several rooms, especially the more potent ones. I have never had a problem with being able to smell the oils.

Some will call for more drops than others but that is based on the fragrance of the oil. For example, I use more drops of lemon oil than lavender because the lavender has a strong potent smell. If I put too much in I will have to turn it off more frequently because it's just too strong. Also, the diffuser has two settings.

If you press the "on" button once the diffuser will run for about 30 seconds, shut off and then automatically turn back on. It will continue to do this on this setting. I don't want to assume this is what is happening with those who say it "stopped working" but it is possible. If you press that same button twice instead of once, the diffuser will run consistently until it runs out of water. I use both settings depending on how much fragrance I want or how long I want the water to last.

The mist from my diffuser works perfectly fine. The other button is strictly for the lights. Sometimes I use them sometimes I don't. You can have the lights off and use just the diffuser. The "on" light stays on consistently. It is just a small red or green button depending on the mist setting so if you need complete darkness to sleep it may be a problem.

Using a Diffuser is an Easy Way to Disperse Essential Oils

​Most common essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, tea tree oil, patchouli, and eucalyptus are distilled. Raw plant material, consisting of the flowers, leaves, wood, bark, roots, seeds, or peel, is put into an alembic (distillation apparatus) over water. As the water is heated, the steam passes through the plant material, vaporizing the volatile compounds. The vapors flow through a coil, where they condense back to liquid, which is then collected in the receiving vessel.

Most common essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, tea tree oil, patchouli, and eucalyptus are distilled. Raw plant material, consisting of the flowers, leaves, wood, bark, roots, seeds, or peel, is put into an alembic (distillation apparatus) over water. As the water is heated, the steam passes through the plant material, vaporizing the volatile compounds. The vapors flow through a coil, where they condense back to liquid, which is then collected in the receiving vessel.

This is from a person who has been practicing aromatherapy for about 25 years. They said “You start out with 6 oils, and before you know it, you have 30 different fragrances, and you're creating your own mixes to treat all kinds of illnesses of mind, body and spirit.

You never want to try to diffuse those cheap "fragrance oils". Those will only create a nasty film, and gunk up your diffuser's ultrasonic ceramic disk. Only buy 100% pure essential oils, for your diffuser. Of course, any scent that you connect to, is the best scent for you.

Find a health food store, or even a large supermarket with a health food section, and you'll find an aromatherapy display with tester bottles. Smell a few, then stop. The nose can only recognize a new scent, for so long. (We acclimatize to smell so fast.) If you don't live somewhere near a health food store, or you just want to delve right in, I recommend one of those "Essential oil starter kits", with 6 or 8 different oils. (These kits usually contain Lavender, Peppermint, Orange, Eucalyptus, and maybe Lemongrass or Tea Tree oil.)

Personally, I might buy the Lavender, Peppermint, Orange, Eucalyptus, but add a couple of more expensive oils that are typically used for incense. For example, Myrrh, patchouli, pine, or a personal favorite, cedarwood oil. Its inexpensive, and has a lot of benefits, including being a bug repellent.

If you want to use your diffuser on your back porch, and have problems with mosquitos, why not consider buying some citronella oil? Instead of orange oil, a subtler scent is orange blossom, or even bergamot oil. (A favorite blend for headaches, is the classical version of eau de cologne, which is lavender oil 3 drops, bergamot or orange oil 3 drops, and 3 drops of rosemary oil. It rids you of headaches in a jiffy.)

If you really start to get interested in the subject of aromatherapy, or even the history of perfumery, and incense, there are no shortages of books to purchase. It’s like any other art form. If you start to learn to play an instrument, your ear will develop more sensitivity to sounds, to the beauty within all types of sounds, and the relationships of one note to another.

The same is true of aromatherapy. In fact, musical language is used to describe the scents. A top note is the most easily detected scent, and most easily evaporated. (Like bergamot oil). The bottom note, or bass note, last the longest, and as in music, ties together all the other scents in a mix. (Patchouli and sandalwood oil, are both bottom notes.)

​You can just dip your toe in the water, and get a bottle of lavender oil for relaxing, and a bottle of peppermint oil for colds, or to perk up, or you can discover the amazing world of scent all around you.”

What URPOWER Aroma Essential Oil Cool Mist Humidifier Diffuser Customers Say

You can just dip your toe in the water, and get a bottle of lavender oil for relaxing, and a bottle of peppermint oil for colds, or to perk up, or you can discover the amazing world of scent all around you.”

“I’m brand new to the essential oils thing but this review is strictly on the diffuser itself. First off, I love that it has 2 settings on how you want it to diffuse. Green light, it’ll diffuse on for about 30 seconds and then stop for about the same amount of time and alternate until it runs out of water or you shut it off. Red light just runs continually until you, again, run out of water or shut it off yourself.

Now they say that the unit should run continuously (red light setting) for about 3 hours and intermittently (green light setting) for about 6 hours. My personal experience as that it runs way longer (by at least 2 hours on the green setting). I use mine to help me sleep at night instead of taking medicine every night. I usually go to lay down between 8-9 pm and start my diffuser. Most nights (again on the green setting) I’ll wake up the next morning at 5 am and it’s still going.” …. Read More
