Aromatherapy has been known to improve breathing, overall mental and physical health, as well as emotional well-being.

There are many different types of aroma diffusers available: ultrasonic diffusers, nebulizing diffusers, reed (stick) diffusers, evaporative diffusers, and candle diffusers.

The most common types of diffusers you see in Malaysia are ultrasonic diffusers and reed diffusers.

My top pick is the Deerma F300 Aroma Diffuser and Air Humidifier. It comes with a good 2.5L tank size and has a flexible rotatable 360 degrees mist outlet.

Customer’s critical review

Really no recommend for this product , which is very big and Inconvenient to use .

Bear in mind that this diffuser is not really super-compact size, it can be too huge for some small bedside tables.

Adding water is done at the top without the need to lift up the water tank. The mist outlet is rotatable 360 degrees, making it easy to blow the aroma in any particular direction.

Many have concerns with the ABS material used by most devices when putting in essential oils, for fear of corroding the material.

This water tank is made of Anti-Corrosion PP Material, not ABS thus making the water tank more resistant to corrosion and any high temperature.

The best part of this diffuser is users can add aromatherapy essential oils, fruits, flowers directly into the tank.

Some ultrasonic diffusers are not capable of doing so, it can spoil the machines.

Diffuser okay but don’t expect the mist to be strong. It doesn’t cover the living room. I barely smell the scent. Maybe if put in small bedroom abt 300sqf will do the trick. Delivery wise is fast.

Customer’s positive review:

I love it! Small and elegant. Looks like a compact powder. I bring this with me to the office and in the car for soft and slight hint aromatherapy.

At first, I thought to flip the shell like a compact powder, but u actually have to twist the top cover open to reveal the inside.

Customer’s critical review:

Not easy to open and close due to the shape.

Given the cheap pricing, this diffuser is neither a nebulizing nor an ultrasonic diffuser. It actually works by using a fan to blow through the refill pads to get the smell out.

It is fitted with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery; a 500 mAh battery that allows you to run it wirelessly. It is great for travelling or even at home. It does not need water so there’s no worry of water spillage when moving it around.

It is claimed that this little device can run up to 10 hours of continuous use.

The operation is quiet and its stylish shell shape design can also double up as a decorative item too. Turn it clockwise to turn it on and counter-clockwise to turn it off.  

Moreover, most mobile phone USB charging cables can be used to charge this diffuser too. So, it is very convenient.

This product comes with 6 months International Seller Warranty.
