Made By Zen

Enso White / Made By Zen

On a shopping trip at Meadowhall last Saturday, I noticed this peculiar device which I had never even seen or heard of before. This is an aroma diffuser from Made By Zen. I stepped into a shop full of hand carved wooden photo frames, incense sticks, oil burners, and these little devices!
This one was purchased for £39.99, the cheapest they had were £34.99 and the most expensive at £59.99 which also included an alarm clock at the bottom!

These aroma diffusers have a lot of 'science' behind them, and this is what they claim:

★ They have 5 in 1 functions - aroma diffuser, mini humidifier, air purifier, ionizer and a small night light
★ Advanced ultrasonic technology which produces vibrations at a frequency of 2 million times per second without using heat.
★ Releases tiny droplets of water vapour which is highly beneficial for our skin and general well being and has been known to provide relief for symptoms of respiratory problems.
★ Improve air quality and prevents damage from second hand smoke, stale air and allergens.
★ It functions as an ioniser by releasing negative ions into the air (known as “air vitamins”) which combat harmful positive ions.  This provides many health benefits e.g. improves breathing, strengthens the immune system, etc.

The diffuser is very easy to use. You simply unscrew the top, fill the base with water up to the maximum line (along with a couple of drops of your favourite essential / fragrance oil) place the top half back on and then switch the on button! It's as easy as that! 

I've been using my diffuser for a couple of days now, and I can honestly say I am very happy with it! It definitely seems to purify the air around you, it makes it easier to breathe whilst releasing fragrance as opposed to using oil burners! It gives a soft light which is great for night time or perfect for the 'just before bed' time - and lavender oil is perfect if you're having trouble sleeping! I've actually been filling mine up half way and putting it on before I go to sleep (it does make a little noise, but you soon get used to it)
The diffuser lasts a very long time from filling it up right to the maximum level - approximate guide of 4-5 hours! Another good feature is it's automatic shut off when the water reaches a low level (the light also turns off during this point)

All in all, I think it's a very good alternative to using oil burners (even though I'm a big fan of oil burners, I think I've been converted) and if you do happen to leave it on over night, it's not as dangerous as forgetting to blow a candle out before bed time! 
Have you ever tried an aroma diffuser before? What do you think?
