    What is the Difference Between Aroma Diffusers and Humidifiers?

    Nowadays, people spend 80% of their day indoors. In air-conditioned rooms, waste bacteria increase and humidity decreases. More and more household appliances to improve the indoor environment are becoming popular. Humidifiers and aroma diffusers are two of them.

    They are all fogged and water added. What's the difference? How should I choose?

    We can compare the following aspects:


    Aroma diffuser: Since most of the pure plant essential oils are acidic, they tend to be corrosive to ordinary plastic containers. Therefore, most of the aroma diffusers are made of PP. The chips, wafer spoons and atomizers of the aroma diffusers are specially developed for essential oils, which are resistant to oil, water, and chemical corrosion. Therefore, putting the essential oil in the aromatherapy machine can more thoroughly use every drop of aromatherapy essence, and very quickly distribute the extremely delicate aromatherapy molecules to every corner. It can be used safely.

    Humidifier: Ordinary humidifier uses ABS or AS plastic material as the water tank. The main medium used is water, which is not resistant to the corrosion of essential oils. Long-term use will cause the water tank to be corroded and cause rupture. It may also produce toxic gas released into the air. Healthy body.



    Aroma diffuser: Ultrasonic aroma diffuser is specially designed for essential oil users. Pure plant essential oils and purified water can be added to the cavity. After adding essential oils, it can not only increase air humidity, but also emit fragrance molecules. Depending on the composition of essential oils, they can play different roles.

    Humidifier: The main function of the humidifier is to humidify, and only clean water can be added.

    Amount of fog

    Aroma diffuser: The aroma diffuser uses an advanced atomization module, an international patented air duct design, and a stable volume control circuit setting, so that each aroma diffuser can produce a consistent and light fragrance mist. Ensure that the fragrance mist particles are fine and uniform, staying in the air for a long time, so that the body can absorb each essential oil molecule better and more fully.

    Humidifier: The main function of the humidifier is humidification. It usually uses an atomizer with a diameter of 20-25mm. The generated particles are large and heavy, the amount of fog is thick, and the water mist particles stay in the air for a short time. Elegance is not far away.


    Water cavity

    Aroma diffuser: The essential oil aromatherapy machine is specially designed for essential oil users, with a simple structure design, which is convenient for users to clean and maintain.

    Humidifier: The humidifier basically has a water supply tank design, and the internal design of the water cavity is slightly complicated.

    Different shock technology

    Aroma diffuser: The ultrasonic vibration technology adopted by the aroma diffuser can atomize water molecules and essential oils to nanometer level and diffuse into the air.

    Humidifier: The ultrasonic vibration power of the humidifier is small, and essential oils cannot be used, which will result in incomplete vibration and decomposition of essential oil molecules and stay in the machine.

    Different cleaning methods

    Aroma diffuser: The water tank of the aromatherapy machine is treated with a special treatment process, which is more convenient to use and clean.

    Humidifier: Because the material of ordinary humidifier is relatively common, it is easy to produce dirt after use, and it is difficult to clean it with cleaning fluid. The atomization chip may also block aging.


    In short, the workmanship and requirements of the aroma diffuser are relatively high, and the aroma diffuser is more practical than a humidifier. This practicality is reflected in the following points:

    • The function of essential oil aromatherapy is more abundant, which can purify the air through aromatherapy maniacs, so as to comfort and nourish the skin. The effects of various essential oils are also different, such as rosemary can relieve fatigue, mountain lemon can whiten oil and so on. In addition, it can also be used as a night light.
    •  The power of essential oil aromatherapy machine is smaller, which can save electricity bills. In fact, compared with humidifiers, aroma diffusers have a larger applicable area under the same capacity. Moreover, the power is smaller, and it is different to worry about electricity bills when used throughout the day.
    • The essential oil aroma diffuser is smaller in size and convenient to carry. In case of business trips, tourism, etc., it is unrealistic to take the humidifier out. But the aroma diffuser is relatively mini, so it can be easily put in a suitcase or travel bag.
