The Nebulizer is an essential oil diffuser of an uncommon type. It is a no-heat, no-water diffuser that uses comes with a natural, wood, spherical base and a hand-blown glass bottle. Unlike most other diffusers, this nebulizer contains no plastic parts that would corrode when in contact with the oils. With proper care, your diffuser can last for many, many years. ArOmis diffusers use no heat or water to function, keeping the essential oil in its natural state as it becomes a mist.
With a convenient knob control, you have full control over how much oil you diffuse. The lowest setting is great for a small room or bedside use. Crank it up for enjoyment in larger areas or the entire house. The built-in timer function turns the nebulizer on-and-off every ten minutes, and has an auto-off feature that turns the unit off completely after 4 hours of use. This feature makes it ideal for users who want to turn the unit on and just forget about it.
For normal home use, it is not recommended to use a nebulizer if you like to diffuse for long periods of time, or all day. Nebulizers diffuse concentrated, undiluted essential oils, and over-use of any oil can have negative effects- especially with children, elderly & pets. It is recommended to nebulize for 1-3 hours per day to avoid overexposure to aromatic molecules. That being said, it is a great home diffuser when used responsibly, and these are great for medicinal use & disinfecting the air intermittently throughout the day.
These units make amazing and memorable gifts as they are stunningly beautiful, hand blown pieces of functional art. They are also perfect for spas, message studios, yoga studios or for anyone who wants their 30' x 30' space filled with essential oil aroma.
Run Time: 10 minute on/off cycles for 4 hours
Cleaning: With simple rubbing alcohol.
"Do not use nebulizing diffusers to put large volumes of essential oils into indoor air, and do not diffuse continuously. Anytime you begin inhaling essential oil, you will rather quickly start losing your ability to smell it, and this is one reason that people tend to diffuse too much essential oil. Essential oils diffused in excessive amounts can cause respiratory tract irritation and/or chronic toxicity. People exposed to high levels of topically applied essential oils on a regular basis have some risk for developing skin irritation, sensitization and chronic toxicity."
