"I bought 2 diffusers and this one is ok in that it works with 3-5 drops of oil for maybe 1/2 hour which is enough to fragrance a room but only briefly. The other type diffuser uses less oil and fragrances my entire house for hours and then I can still smell it the next morning. I wouldn't recommend this one unless you just want a quick burst of fragrance that fades just as quickly and has no lingering fragrance even in a small room."
Well made product, ineffective beyond several feet

"This product is well made and works, but this style of oil diffuser really is inferior to the ultrasonic styles that disperse scent immediately. This product at best could put scent out into a small bathroom, and the heat causes the oil to be used up quickly. Then, when the unit is no longer creating scent, it is easy to forget to unplug it, which is the only way to get it to turn off. The unit itself is solid with nothing that would give an impression it would not hold up over time. If you cannot afford an ultrasonic dispersion unit, then this one is worth its cost."
"This works so much better than a fan diffuser (I haven't tried an atomizer yet). I have a small house with small rooms, and this is perfect. I diffuse my favorite EO or blend for about an hour then unplug or move to another room. I do plan to buy another."
"I love the size and efficiency of this diffuser. I can use it in smaller bathrooms and in my dining/living room area and it works great in both rooms! Within minutes it works to heat the oils and make the rooms smell fantastic!"
"I'm very impressed with the quality, considering the cost. I wanted to start diffusing lavender essential oil in my bedroom but couldn't afford a fancy, expensive diffuser. This has been a great, affordable option. The pads have to be replaced regularly, but they are very inexpensive as well."
"Vitacost has best cost and shipping!! I set up the diffuser then briefly left the house. I put it in kitchen and came home, opening door to such a great scent! I used Chill Pill fragrance blend. It does seem to dry up quickly but I equate it to a candle but better. You let it 'burn' for awhile, have a nice wholesome fragrance that relaxes or rejuvenates and you don't have to worry about the lit candle, smoke stain on ceiling or a potential fire."
"I didn't have high expectations since it's inexpensive - but it works beautifully! I love that I can just add more oils to it and plug it in wherever it is needed. I use it in my spa room if I want a relaxing calming effect, but then I can switch the oils to an uplifting cheerful scent for the living quarters, or make a sickness-busting blend to put in my sons room if he's been exposed to something at school."
"This is a great and cheaper alternative to chemical laden diffusers and candles. The pads are cheap enough to change the scent often. My personal favorite is tea tree and red thyme at night - keeps sinuses clear overnight so I wake up breathing easier and without sinus pressure. Works so well I usually travel with it."
