Nowadays, people spend most of their time indoors with air conditioning and heating systems. Indoor air pollution and bacteria increase while humidity decreases. Therefore, household appliances that improve indoor air quality are becoming popular, such as humidifiers. However, there is a big difference between a regular humidifier and an aromatherapy diffuser, which are often confused by people. Next, we will introduce the difference between a regular humidifier and an aromatherapy humidifier.
Functions of Aromatherapy Diffuser and Regular Humidifier Diffusers
Aromatherapy humidifiers: Ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers are designed for essential oil users. The chamber can hold plant essential oils and purified water. After adding essential oils, the humidifier not only increases the humidity of the air, purifies and sterilizes it, but also diffuses aromatherapy molecules. Depending on the components of the essential oil, it can produce different effects.
Regular humidifiers: The main function of a humidifier is to increase humidity, and can only add clean water. Due to the design of the water level, some product structures have limitations on water quality.
Materials of aromatherapy humidifiers and regular humidifiers
Aromatherapy humidifiers: Most plant essential oils are acidic and can have certain corrosiveness to ordinary plastic containers. Therefore, aromatherapy humidifiers mostly use PP materials. The core chip, crystal chip, and atomizing piece are all specially developed for essential oils, and can withstand oil, water, and chemical corrosion. Therefore, the use of essential oils in aromatherapy humidifiers can more thoroughly utilize every drop of essential oil and quickly diffuse the aroma molecules to every corner, making it safe and reliable to use.
Regular humidifiers: Regular humidifiers use ABS or AS plastic materials as the water tank, mainly using water as the medium, which is not resistant to essential oil corrosion. Long-term use can corrode the water tank, causing it to break or discharge toxic gases into the air, which can affect health.
Differences in Mist Volume Between Aromatherapy Humidifiers and Regular Humidifiers
Aromatherapy humidifiers: aromatherapy diffusers use advanced atomization module and air duct design, with stable mass control circuit settings, so that each aromatherapy humidifier can produce consistent mist volume, ensuring delicate and uniform fragrance particles that stay in the air for a long time, making the absorption of every essential oil molecule by the body better and more complete.
Regular humidifiers: Humidifiers are mainly used for humidification, and usually use large-diameter atomizing pieces with diameters between 20 and 25mm. The particles generated are large and heavy, and the mist volume is thick, but the water mist particles stay in the air for a short time and do not drift far.
Different Vibration Technologies Between Aromatherapy Humidifiers and Regular Humidifiers
Aromatherapy humidifiers: aromatherapy diffusers use ultrasonic oscillation technology, which can atomize water molecules to a nanometer level, effectively dispersing and diffusing essential oils into the air, allowing people to bathe in fragrant air.
Regular humidifiers: The ultrasonic vibration power of humidifiers is insufficient to decompose and release essential oils, and some essential oils may be left on the wall of the water tank, wasting essential oils.
Different Cleaning Methods Between Aromatherapy Humidifiers and Regular Humidifiers
Aromatherapy humidifiers: The water tank of the aromatherapy diffuser is treated with special processes, and the water tank is simple to use and clean.
Regular humidifiers: As the material of regular humidifiers is generally ordinary, dirt can easily accumulate after use, making it difficult to clean properly. The atomizing piece may also become blocked or deteriorated.
