What is a humidifier?


A humidifier is a household appliance that is mainly used to increase the humidity in the indoor air, it regulates and raises the humidity level in the room by spraying water mist into the indoor air, and it is usually used during the dry season.

The role of humidifier

1. Increase humidity. The humidifier releases a large number of negative ions during the atomization process, increasing indoor humidity, which is beneficial for rehydrating dry air and combines with air and sediment floating in smoke and dust to effectively eliminate paint, mold, smoke, and odors, making the air more refreshing.

2. Moisturize skin, skincare, and beauty. Hot summers and unusually dry winters, result in excessive loss of moisture in human skin, accelerating the aging of life, and moist air in order to maintain vitality. Humidifiers create a foggy environment, moisturize the skin, promote blood circulation and metabolism of facial cells, soothe nervous tension, eliminate fatigue, and make people glow.

3. Add auxiliary agents and aromatherapy. Add plant essential oils or medicinal liquid in water, etc., with the water mist emanation, full of fragrance, so that the body is more easily absorbed, there is a cure for the disease, health care, and physical therapy effects, especially for skin allergies, insomnia, colds, coughs, asthma has an excellent auxiliary effect, is the best alternative to the traditional aromatherapy products.


 The bad side of humidifier

1. Pollution of air. Because tap water contains a variety of minerals that can cause damage to the humidifier’s evaporator, and the water alkali it contains can also affect its service life. Chlorine atoms and microorganisms in tap water may blow into the air with the water mist and cause pollution. If the tap water hardness is high, the humidifier spray water mist contains calcium and magnesium ions, which will produce white powder pollution of indoor air

2. Easily cause infection. Bacteria in the air and various microorganisms on objects multiply rapidly at the right temperature, and people with weak resistance such as the elderly and children can easily get infected after inhaling them.

3. Electrical safety risks: humidifiers are electrical products and incorrect use and placement of the motor may be at risk.

 What is an aromatherapy diffuser?

Aromatherapy Diffuser

Aroma Diffuser is a kind of home electronic equipment, whose main function is to atomize the essential oil or other essential oils released into the indoor air so that the space is filled with elegant fragrance.

 Advantages of aroma diffuser

1. Enhance the scenting experience

Creates a pleasant scented environment by atomizing and dispersing a variety of essential oils or natural oils into the room.

2. Relieves stress and anxiety

Certain essential oils have aromatherapeutic properties that can help relax and relieve stress and anxiety.

3. Improve air quality

Some aromatherapy diffusers have a humidifying function, which can increase the humidity of the indoor air and improve the dry air.

4. Easy to use

Most aromatherapy diffusers are easy to use, with timers, automatic shut-off, and other features that make them convenient to use.


Disadvantages of aroma diffuser

1. Noise

Especially for some humidification-type aromatherapy machines, atomization will produce a certain noise, affecting the environment quiet.

2. Cost of consumables

Regular replenishment of essential oils is required, so the cost of long-term use will be higher.

3. Safety Hazards

Heat evaporator-type aromatherapy machines need to be used with care, as there are some fire hazards.

4. Cleaning and Maintenance

Aromatherapy diffusers are prone to accumulate fragrance oil stains and require regular cleaning and maintenance.

5. Effects on Sensitive People

Some people may be allergic to or uncomfortable with essential oils.

Difference between humidifier and aromatherapy diffuser


Aromatherapy Diffuser: Designed for the use of essential oils, you can add pure essential oils and pure water.

Humidifier: the main function is humidification, it can only add water and some products to the water quality requirements


Aroma Diffuser: Because pure essential oils have certain corrosive properties, most of the aroma diffusers are made of PP material, and the chips, chip spoons, and atomizers of aroma diffusers are specially developed for essential oils, which are resistant to oil, water and chemical corrosion. So the essential oil drops in the aromatherapy machine can be used more thoroughly every drop of aromatherapy molecules emanates to every corner, and it can be safe and secure use.

Humidifier: An ordinary humidifier using ABS or AS plastic material for the water tank, does not resist essential oil corrosion, long-term use will lead to corrosion of the water tank, resulting in rupture, and may produce toxic gases released into the air, affecting health.

Water cavity

Aromatherapy machine: The essential oil aromatherapy machine is specially designed for essential oil users, the uses a user-friendly interface, and the water cavity structure is simple and very easy to clean. Qianqiao’s water chamber capacity is designed so that the concentration of aromatherapy is always uniform.

Humidifier: humidifiers basically have a refill tank design, the water cavity internal design is complex, easy to produce scale after long-term use, and it is difficult to clean!

Fog volume

Aroma Diffuser: Aroma Diffuser uses an advanced atomization module and international patented air duct design, constant and stable fog volume control circuit settings, so that each aromatherapy machine can produce a high consistency of fog volume and lightweight fog, to ensure that the fog particles are fine and uniform, and stay in the air for a long time.

Humidifier: humidifier to humidification as the main or only function, so usually use the diameter of 20-25mm large diameter atomizer, fog volume thick and large particles, can quickly humidify the indoor environment.

Expanded knowledge: cold knowledge of aromatherapy diffusers and humidifiers

1. Can the aromatherapy machine be used as a humidifier?

The aroma diffuser can not meet the humidification needs, the general aromatherapy machine humidification is relatively small, and the water tank capacity is low. Atomized water molecules are very fine, the humidification effect as well as the range is not obvious, only in the office and such a small range can play a humidifying effect.

2.  humidifier drop into the essential oils?

A humidifier without a separate aromatherapy module can not be added to the essential oils. Because the water tank drops of essential oils and its components will have a humidifier tank plastic containers with solubility, and most of the essential oils are acidic, affecting the life of the atomizer as well as the fog mouth scaling.

3. What kind of water should be added to the humidifier?

It is recommended to use pure water or cool white water because they do not contain impurities, all belong to the lower hardness of the soft water, which can reduce the impurities precipitated into the scale!
