Last Christmas I received the Saje aromaBreeze Ultrasonic Nebulizer as a present, which introduced me to the world of aroma diffusers. Using that device helped to provide a basis of comparison for the Jasmine Aroma Diffuser by Stadler Form (C$85), which was sent to me by Nuworld Botanicals.
Along with the diffuser, I received the Everyday Zen Diffuser Oil Blends Try Me Kit, which comes with 6 essential oil blends (6 x 7.4ml vials for C$44).
The Jasmine Aroma Diffuser uses the same ultrasonic technology as the Saje to deliver moisture, ions, and essential oil into the air. The benefits are to hydrate, improve mood and even deposit oils onto the skin! It’s super easy to use:
• Pour in room temperature tap water up to the indicated level (about 100ml)
• Add essential oils (NuWorld recommends about 20-25 drops per use – I just dispense a dropper-full for ease of measurement)
• Turn on the device
Similar to the Saje aromaBreeze model, the Jasmine Aroma Diffuser has an auto-shut-off mechanism which shuts off after around 6 hours. The Jasmine model has an added feature of an interval setting: 10 min on, 20 min off, and runs approximately 24 hours with one filling.
I must say – I prefer the Jasmine Aroma Diffuser is over the Saje aromaBreeze!
It is much more compact even though it holds the same amount of water as the Saje. The shape of the Jasmine is more stable than the Saje since it has a more squat base.
Also, I found the throw of the scent to be stronger with the Jasmine – I can smell the oils all throughout our place with just this one small unit. Lastly, this unit runs almost silently, unlike the Saje which has a noticeable hum.
Now for the oils, the Try Me Kit contained the following:
• Brain Boost
Helps sharpen mental clarity, concentration and focus.
Contains: Bergamot oil, Lemon oil and Basil essential oil
• Eucalyptus Steam
Helps support a healthy immune system.
Contains: Eucalyptus essential oil, Rosemary oil and Peppermint oil.
• Get Your Om On
Helps enhance your meditation and yoga practice.
Contains: Frankincense oil, Ylang Ylang oil and Patchouli essential oil.
• Happy Vibes
Helps uplift spirits and rejuvenate the soul.
Contains: Grapefruit essential oil, Sweet Orange oil and Lime essential oil.
• Hot Yoga
Helps to relieve stress, promote balance and harmony.
Contains: Black Pepper oil, Lemon Oil and Sandalwood essential oil.
• Peace of Mind
Helps to promote peace and tranquility in your busy life.
Contains: Lavender oil, Chamomile oil and Rosewood essential oil.
I tried each of these oil blends over the course of several weeks and my favourites were the citrusy smells of “Happy Vibes” and the mellow scents of “Peace of Mind”. Based on my usage rates, I’d say each 7.4ml vial would yield about 10 uses in the diffuser. I rate the diffuser 10/10 and the oils 8/10
The Jasmine Aroma Diffuser and the Try Me Kit are sold separately or together as a gift set, which retails for C$125 and would make an excellent Christmas present. You know, for those people who already have everything and you don’t know what to get them? Get them this! 😀
Note: these were sent to me free of charge and I tested them out thoroughly before forming my own thoughts and opinions about them. Thank you, Nuworld Botanicals!
Have you tried these types of room diffusers and oils? What are your thoughts on them?
