Aroma diffusers come in various shapes and sizes. The Pure Daily Care Aroma Diffuser has a teardrop-ish shape. The bottom section is round, like a squished sphere, and it tapers up and into a narrow spout at the top where the mist diffuses from. The diffuser itself sits about 6-inches in height and about 7-inches at its widest.
At the front of the diffuser base are two buttons. The first is the light button while the second is the mist button. The bottom of the diffuser has three small feet with rubber nubs in them. The power cord connects on the underside and this is also where the mist fan intake is located.
The inside of the diffuser is opaque white plastic. The base has a bowl with a min/max sticker located at the back. In the center is a hole with a small pad which is where the bubbling/misting action happens.
As for looks, the PDC Aroma Diffuser looks wooden but it is actually plastic. That being said, it doesn’t look cheap and the wood “finish” on the outer side has a rather nice look. The top part of the diffuser is the diffuser cover. The cover sits on the base where a thin white strip shows. This strip lights up when plugged in and can be rotated through various light combinations.
In addition, this Aroma Diffuser comes with 10 Essence Oils: Lemongrass, Lavender, Jasmine, Clove, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Spearmint, Orange, Peppermint, and Nutmeg. Each oil is said to have a different effect when used, which will cover further in the review.
Ease of Use
The Pure Daily Care Aroma Diffuser is super easy to use. Simply fill the diffuser with clean water between the min/max line on the inside. After that, you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil and replace the diffuser cover.
Next, plug it in and press the mist button to turn it on. One press will turn it on for one hour, after which time the diffuser will automatically turn off. Press it twice for 3 hours, three times for 6 hours, and four times for no time limit. Pressing it a fifth time will turn it off. If the water does run out, the diffuser will turn off so you don’t have to worry about damaging the unit if you forget to turn it off.
As for the light ring, pressing the light button once will turn it on and let it cycle through the different colours. You can either press it again to keep the current colour or keep pressing it to cycle through the available options. To turn the light off, simply hold the switch for a couple of seconds.
The Pure Daily Care Aroma Diffuser works fairly well. The mist comes out as expected and filled our living room nicely. Regardless of the scent used, it wasn’t overpowering if you only put in a few drops. We tended to leave the diffuser on during testing and it actually ran all day without running out of water. We did also test the timers and the unit did indeed turn off after the allotted time was selected.
Aromatherapy is one of those things that people either swear by or scoff at. Personally, I’ve never thought much into it but the subtle scents can be a nice addition to your room or house. I tried different ones at random without telling anyone what they were. While I didn’t really see a change in behaviour or mood for the most part, when using some of them I did feel a bit calmer and in a slightly better mood. Still, I’m not convinced it was the diffuser alone or the events throughout the course of the day that contributed to that.
At any rate, according to the insert provided with the diffuser, the following oils have the following benefits:
- Lemongrass: analgesic, antidepressant, antimicrobial with mood boosting properties
- Lavender: promote relaxation, reduce stress, induce sleep
- Jasmine: uplifting effects on the mind and depression fighting properties
- Clove: immune booster, reduce headaches
- Eucalyptus: removes mental fatigue, provides instant mental acuity
- Tea Tree: boosts immunity and organ functions
- Spearmint: relieves spasms and promotes muscle relaxation, including menstrual pains
- Orange: wide array of healing effects including mental and physical from reducing depression, inflammation to relieving muscle pain, and stomach discomfort
- Peppermint: boost mental capacity, reduce stress, promotes digestion
- Nutmeg: reduce pain, indigestion, boost blood circulation, and relieving menstrual cramps
One thing I did notice, however, was when the diffuser was on with some of the scents, one of my two dogs would start sneezing frequently after half-an-hour or so. I did a bit of Googling and, as it turns out, aroma diffusers aren’t the greatest for pets. In fact, some oils can be harmful to your four-legged friends. If you do have pets, you’ll want to keep that in mind if considering this, or any other diffuser. For dogs, eucalyptus, grapefruit, lemongrass, tea tree, and mint are ones to avoid (three of which are included in this package). Cats, on the other hand, fare much worse and eucalyptus, grapefruit, lemongrass, mint, scented geranium, lavender, lovage, Mexican tea, and Spanish thyme should be avoided (again, three of which are included here).
For some odd reason, the Pure Daily Care Aroma Diffuser is listed at US$149.99 on their website. However, on Amazon, Wal-mart, and other retailers, it sits around the $39.95 range. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend it at the website price. If you’re into aroma diffusers, it does seem like a pretty decent value for under $40 with the inclusion of 10 essential oils.
The Pure Daily Care Aroma Diffuser comes with a range of different oils with different benefits. Reasonably priced, it works well and diffuses a subtle scent that fills the room.
