While I featured VAVA Desktop Diffuser in my Cortney’s Favorite Things from 2017 I was so impressed that I wanted to share more about this particular item. I mean I ended up buying a total of four of them – so it is safe to say, I think I am in LOVE!
When I order my first one I was a bit skeptical. I liked the sleek, modern and minimalist look of the diffuser but was unsure about how it would perform. After conducting much research on diffusers I knew I wanted it to have an auto-shutoff and an intermittent setting. This had both and was so compact and cute… I took a chance!
It arrived in sturdy packaging and include a users guide, cleaning brush, USB cord, and a black travel tote. I initially purchased it for my bedside but the light would not go off while it was running (You can set it for the light to be off while it is still defusing. I just didn’t figure that out until a month later… SMH) So I took it to work instead. And this proved to be so helpful while in the office.
After a couple of days, I felt like a ninja when I added my essential oils to fight off the germs that floated around the office. And besides, it made my office smell pretty darn good! I have enjoyed this diffuser so much because of its compact size and ease of use that I ended up ordering a total three more for my two kids and mother. Now my kid requests me to turn it on at night to help them rest and it helps my mother get some additional rest to ease her anxiety.
Use, Settings & Cleaning
Since it only holds 30 ml it only leaves you the opportunity to add about 1-2 drops of essential oils. So you could add your favorite single essential oil or a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil blend. As I mentioned earlier, the diffuser will work with the lighting off. Check out the guide below:
- Continuous Mist = Press On Button One Initial Time
- Intermittent Mist (30 secs on/30 secs off) = Press On Button One More Time After Initial
- Turn Off Light = Press On Button One 2X During Continuous Mist or Intermittent Mist
- Turn Off Diffuser = Holding Down On Button
Depending on the settings you use, the time of diffusing can range from 3 – 6 hours. Also, the machine is easy to clean but I think the brush for the machine could be better. Lastly, it is not silent but only emits a very soft bubbling sound that is actually kind of soothing.
