Nowadays, people spend 80% of their time indoors and in air-conditioned rooms. The waste bacteria increase and humidity decreases. More and more household appliances to improve the indoor environment are becoming popular. Humidifiers and aroma diffusers are the two of them. They are all fogged and water added. What’s the difference? How should I choose?

From Function

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 the essential oil, it can play different roles.

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

From Materials

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 aroma diffuser can thoroughly use each drop of aromatherapy essence, and very quickly distribute the aromatherapy molecules to every corner. It can be used safely.

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

From Water Tank

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.

From mist

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 lightly 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: Humidifier uses humidification as the main and only function, usually using a large diameter of 20-25mm atomizer, 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.

Different vibration technology 

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.

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.

Different cleaning methods 

Humidifier: As ordinary humidifiers are relatively common in material, they are prone to dirt after use, and it is difficult to clean them with cleaning fluid. The atomization chip may also block aging.

Aroma diffuser: The water tank of the aroma diffuser has been treated with a special process, making it easy to use and clean.

In short, the workmanship and requirements of the aroma diffuser are relatively high. The aroma diffuser can be used as a humidifier or as an aroma diffuser, which can be described as two birds with one stone.
