Diffusers are one of the best ways to make use of the therapeutic value of essential oils. The AromaFuse diffuser and the Aroma-Spa diffuser are both ultrasonic diffusers. I have discussed the different kinds of diffusers in a previous post. Read it HERE. The ultrasonic diffusers do not use heat, which destroys the molecules of the oils. Instead, they use water that is broken up into a mist by an ultrasonic vibrating disc. These types of diffusers are the most popular and the price is fairly reasonable. So let’s take a look and compare these two ultrasonic diffusers – The AromaFuse by Plant Therapy and The Aroma-Spa by Diffuser World.
How To Use Them
Both of these diffusers are used basically the same way:
1. Remove the cover.
2. Add water in the reservoir to the water mark.
3. Add drops of oil, depending on preference of strength.
4. Replace the cover.
5. Connect the power cord.
6. Press power button and choose desired setting.
Description and Features
Both of these diffusers are similar in shape and size, with the AromaFuse being about an inch taller and just a little wider at 6.8″ wide by 4.3″ tall. The Aroma-Spa measures 6.5″ wide by 3″ tall and has very short legs and sits almost flat on a surface, whereas the AromaFuse has longer angled legs that lift it up about an inch off the surface.
They both have timer settings and light settings, which are great features. This is where the products differ somewhat. One covers over 500 sq. feet, while the other one covers over 300 sq feet.
This diffuser has 5 timer settings.
- Press once for continuous until it runs out of water, approximately 6-10 hours.
- Press twice to run for 2 hours and turns off automatically
- Press three times to diffuse at 15 sec on/30 sec off until water runs out.
- Press four times to diffuse at 15 min on/30 min off until water runs out.
- Press five times to diffuse at 30 min on/30 min off until water runs out.
This diffuser also has a Light setting. When the diffuser starts, the LED light comes on. Press the button once to dim the light. Press the button twice to turn the light off.
The AromaFuse has a large 380 ml water reservoir that can give up to 10 hours of continuous diffusion. It covers an area of more than 500 square feet.
This diffuser only has three timer settings.
- Press once for a continuous mist that lasts up to 3 hours and shuts off automatically.
- Press twice to diffuse at 15 sec on / 15 sec off for up to 6 hours, shutting off automatically when water is gone.
- Press three times to shut off.
There is also a light setting on the Aroma-Spa.
- Press once to turn lights on and the light changes colors.
- Press twice to choose a color and leave on.
- Press three times to turn the light off
The Aroma-Spa has a 100 ml water reservoir that can give approximately 3-4 continuous hours. This diffuser covers approximately 300-400 square feet.
Why Buy Either Of These?
Essential oils have so many therapeutic properties that are beneficial to all of us. They can be used for many conditions. Anything from anxiety and depression to respiratory conditions, such as, sinus, colds, and asthma. They can be used to treat pain, for wrinkles, scars and wounds. Oils can also be great air fresheners, too.
The Aroma-Spa and AromaFuse can be used along with essential oils to help relieve a lot of these conditions. When the molecules of the oils are misted into the air, they are inhaled to help give relief.
Which One Is My Choice?
Each one of these diffusers does what they are supposed to do, in diffusing the essential oils into the air. Which one is better? Personally, I like Plant Therapy’s AromaFuse better, mostly for the fact that there are more choices of how long the diffuser can run. I like to have mine run all day, so having it 30 minutes on and 30 minutes off is perfect. Plus, I think the style is nice with the angled legs.
Lights are not why I buy a diffuser. I like the AromaFuse diffuser because there is only one light option, either on or off, and it’s dimmable. Most of the time, I leave the light off on my diffuser. I just use it for the benefit of the oils. This diffuser has a one-year limited warranty, which is great!
The Aroma-Spa only has the 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off timer setting, which will only last maybe 6 hours. It does have a smaller water reservoir, so, of course, it can’t run as long as the AromaFuse. This is still a nice diffuser, though, and does the job, and is good for a small room.
If you like lights on your diffuser, this one is great for that. It has multi-colored lights, including blue, purple, green, yellow, and red. There is a setting to rotate through each color or a setting to chose a color to stay on. This diffuser has a six-month warranty.
Where Can These Be Purchased?
The AromaFuse is sold by Plant Therapy and the purchase price is $54.95. It comes in Rose Gold or Wood-Grain Brown. Purchase the AromaFuse HERE. The Aroma-Spa is sold by Diffuser World and is on sale for $29, original price being $59.98. This comes in either black or white. Purchase the Aroma-Spa HERE. Both of these are great buys for what you are getting, especially with the Aroma-Spa on sale.
My Final Opinion
My personal choice is the AromaFuse diffuser because of the choice of timer settings and how long it can run, and because of the one-year warranty. The ratings on this diffuser are pretty good, with an average of 4.5 stars on PlantTherapy.com with 564 reviews and has 4 stars on Amazon.com with 83 reviews.
The Aroma-Spa diffuser may be cheaper right now, but at the original price, I don’t think it’s worth if for me. $29 is a much better price for this one. It may work good, but it doesn’t have all the features that I like. The ratings are good for this one with 5 stars for 2 reviews on Amazon and 5 stars for 2 reviews on Diffuser World.
Diffusers are great to help keep you healthy and to improve your life. If you are using a diffuser, that’s awesome! If you are looking to buy one, I hope my review comparison on the AromaFuse Vs. Aroma-Spa has given you some information to help you in your decision.
