Diffusers or Candles: The Breakdown
The good, the bad and the burnt.
Candles have been around forever. They’re warm and cozy and familiar. They are also limiting, unexciting and leave an unpleasant smell when you blow them out.
The journey to find a candle that actually fills the room with scent is a long one, and once you’ve achieved it, you’ll find it’s costly. And it’s work. You have to trim the wicks if you want to avoid a mini explosion and getting burnt by a tiny flaming piece of wick. You have to burn it for a minimum amount of time so it doesn’t start tunnelling. You can’t even leave the room because of the fire hazard. What if I want to come home to a nice smelling space?
Also let’s be honest… candles are seasonal. No one is burning a candle on a 25°C July day.
Unlike candles, diffusers are bold, versatile, and you don’t have to babysit them. There’s no hassle, you just fill and go. Candles are the YouTube to MP3 converter. Diffusers are Spotify.
You can turn your diffuser on, leave for your dinner reso, and come back to an enchanting smelling apartment. They’re not a fire hazard, they’re a home decor item that adds a whole new dimension of scent to your space. A diffuser is year-round and it’s economically sustainable. No more spending money every month on bulky candles. With a diffuser you make a one time investment for a great product, and you simply buy essential oils for it. Small packaging but packed with potency, it lasts a long time. Our essential oils come in 10mL sizes, meaning there’s about 200-250 drops in each bottle.
Candles use a flame to burn down solidified wax that’s infused with artificial smells, and then fills your room with chemical scent. Diffusers use varying technologies, but the most common is ultrasonic. (Click here to see us break down the technologies we offer and how to pick which one is best for you!).
Ultrasonic diffusers act almost like humidifiers. You pour water in, add 10-15 drops of your chosen essential oil, and then the vibrating plate inside the diffuser creates ultrasonic waves in the liquid inside. These waves separate tiny tiny particles of the essential oil mixed in the water and emit them through the air in a mist. Because of the water, you will get a little bit of extra moisture in the air.
If you are looking for health benefits, look no further. Not only do our diffusers look amazing, have a long lasting battery life, and save you candle money - the essential oils they house also have some great health benefits. Aromatherapy is a real thing and people have been benefiting from it for years. Pure essential oils are extracted from actual plants, herbs and flowers that have natural healing benefits. Many can help with anxiety, sleeplessness and stress. There are also essential oils that go deeper and can help with inflammation, and even purify the air in your space with anti-microbial powers.
On top of all that, our diffusers also have the function of portability. You can attach one of our premium vegan leather straps to your Soni SM or Aero SM and carry it with you wherever you go. The pros just don’t stop with our Seasons diffusers and that’s why we’re so passionate about them. We’re not saying we’re anti-candle… but we are definitely pro diffuser!
