Essential Oil Room Humidifier and Diffuser

VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser and Room Humidifier
I typically write and review things I already own and use that make me happy. Occasionally I write about things that are owned and recommended by friends - things I covet. Today I am writing about my new excitement about room humidifiers and essential oil diffusers. I just learned about these dual purpose items yesterday and am shopping one for today. I believe it is exactly what I need to make my office more comfortable.


Making the Office More Pleasant with Essential Oils


I have already written about the need for pleasant scents and room deodorizers in the work place along with my concern about sprays and chemicals. I am increasingly aware of people and their chemical sensitivities.  

I currently use essential oils and baking soda to create a subtle fragrance in my office in an attempt to refrain from over-powering sprays. I try to be mindful of people who may have allergies or asthma and I am ever-conscious of possible migraine triggers for myself.

Yesterday, I walked into a co-worker's office and just stopped, stood, and sniffed. There was a fairly new and strong scent in her office. For a split second I wondered if this somewhat strong scent was going to trigger a migraine. But she also suffers from migraines. As I stood, taking in the peppermint scent, I found it soothing to the slight headache I had at that moment.

While I've been aware of the Reed Diffuser styles for some time, I didn't care much for most of the scents people chose to use with them.  They were often too strong for my personal preference.  So I was never very tempted. Although, in hindsight, I bet I could find some scents that suit me.

But the diffuser in my co-workers office seemed different. The scent was strong, but not overpowering. The subtle glowing light was soothing. I instantly liked her diffuser and wanted to just sit and stay awhile. Perhaps I felt like that because I am partial to peppermint. But perhaps the way the diffuser works makes it more pleasing. I'm not sure.  Regardless, I liked it enough to start shopping for one as soon as I had a moment.

While shopping for this electric diffuser, I was still a bit skeptical and thinking that I would stick with my baking soda and essential oil method.  I really like the simple method. It is inexpensive and about as natural as you can get.

Then I realized that many of these electric diffusers are also room humidifiers. PERFECT!  Maybe that is why her office felt so welcoming.

My office is often extremely dry. As a result, my hair gets so full of static that it becomes bothersome.  Not to mention the dry nasal passages, itchy dry skin, the plants in my window that are struggling, and other signs of a dry environment. I am tired of the sparks that go flying every time I touch my metal file cabinet!

I'm very excited about these diffusers and their ability to humidify a room. And there are so many styles to choose from. I'm not yet sure if I prefer the tall, vase-like version or the short, squat, round versions. I like both the lighted diffusers with the changing colors and the faux wood grain styles. So many of the version are visually pleasing and choosing the "right" isn't as easy as I had expected.

If you are sold on essential oils and need increased humidity in a room, this may be exactly the thing for you too.

  2. I like really like the idea of the room humidifier. During the winter our house gets really dry, if these work in an office they would surely work in a living room or bedroom. Thanks Dawn for the review,

    1. I visited my co-workers office again today. And confirmed that her diffuser is also a humdifier. She said it is. And that I must get one. I am convinced that it is making her office more comfortable than mine. My only delay is choosing the style.

  4. This sounds tempting, but I'm always a bit worried about getting a humidifier because I don't know how it will affect my books. I have more books than you can count in every room in the house. Do you know how this affects books?

    1. Excellent question Barbara. That I don't really know the full answer to. I do know that my maintenance man branches of my family tree have given me a tiny "humidity" gauge. In my apartment, I add humidity when that gauge says it is too dry. But I watch that it doesn't get too humid. I know that too much humidity makes mold and mildew. I cannot tell you how humid is too humid for books. That is an excellent question. Sorry I can't answer it with expertise.

  5. These are beautiful and I love essential oils. But we have way too much humidity here already! Will have to use a different delivery system for our essential oils.

  6. Interesting and very smart combination of humidifier and pleasant scents. We have a dog who can tell when she's going to get a shock when I pat her, so in dry weather she backs away when she sees my hand coming towards her. Having a humidifier and a diffuser with a pleasant fragrance would be a great combination for us! (Did I mention that we have a dog?)
