Choosing the best diffuser depends on your preferences and how you are going to use it.

fan vs misting diffuser

Passive Fan diffusers and misting ultrasonic diffusers are the two most popular aroma diffusers on the market today. Design aesthetic, color and light modes can be very subjective. Because of this, choosing which type of diffuser fits your needs depends on how you intend to use it.

Choosing between fan diffusers or ultrasonic misters

Misting diffusers tend to be larger and usually are powered by standard AC adapter (wall plugs). They have can have large or small water tanks and water reservoirs. These diffusers use water, mixed with essential oil and produce healthy, humidifying therapeutic mist. Ultrasonic essential oil diffusers are made from different materials ranging from wood, ceramic, glass and plastic. They often double as home decor pieces and come in a variety of colors including faux wood and marble with different LED light modes to add ambiance and mood lighting to bed rooms and living rooms. You can never have too many night lights! Depending on the size of the water tank, ultrasonic essential oil diffusers can run up to 50 hours, for example, SpaRoom’s AuraMist diffuser. SpaRoom ultrasonic diffusers are mostly for medium to large room sizes.
Fan driven oil diffusers tend to be smaller in size and are usually powered by USB or batteries. They’re great for easy travel, for instance. USB diffusers are perfect for using in locations such as office desks and can easily be powered by a laptop or desktop computer. A pro of these types of diffusers is that the user can experience the therapeutic benefits of essential oils without having room filling scent, since some people in an office may not like the smell. Like ultrasonic misting aroma diffusers, fan diffusers offer a variety of light modes. They are available in a variety of shapes and colors. Another positive of fan diffusers is that they are very low maintenance as they do not require water to operate.
