Did you know that scented candles can be bad for you? Not all of them are, but a lot of them release toxic chemicals into the air when they burn.
… certain candles may emit numerous types of potentially hazardous chemicals, such as benzene and toluene. They can cause damage to the brain, lung and central nervous system, as well as cause developmental difficulties.
My quest for a cleaner life didn’t just stop at the products that I put on my body; I also threw away all of my candles because none of them were pure soy or beeswax (which are the good ones, scented with essential oils). Another way to make your house smell good is to use essential oils in an aroma diffuser and I’ve been researching both types of products for over a few months now. When the opportunity to try the Stadler Form JASMINE Aroma Diffuser ($99.99 CAD) presented itself I jumped with joy – it’s like they KNEW I was looking for one!
A noticeably subtle fragrance but still a discreet appearance – that’s Jasmine. Like a simple bowl, she gently releases your favorite fragrance, at 20-minute intervals if you wish – and throughout the day! Using ultrasonic technology, she transforms the water blended with essential oil into an extra fine mist and dispenses it into the surroundings. Jasmine, for rooms full of well-being.
As soon as I saw the Jasmine model I absolutely fell in love with its cuteness! It’s also smaller than I expected, which just adds to its cuteness factor. I didn’t expect it to be huge like a humidifier, but at the same time, I almost did for some odd reason. But nope, it’s 5.12 inches wide and 3.54 inches high. This model is good for rooms up to 550 sq.ft.
It’s really easy to operate: remove the cap (it just slides off, no need to turn/unscrew anything), fill with water to the max line, add a few drops of the essential oil of your choice, replace the cap, and turn on.
The Jasmine has two operation modes: continuous (indicated by one light on like the first picture in this post) and interval at 10 minutes on and 20 minutes off (two lights on, like below). When you have it on interval mode it can last approximately 24 hours on one filling. It also has an automatic shut off so once the water runs out, it turns off.
I currently have two essential oil blends, one for the day that makes you feel happy, and one for the evening that relaxes you. So I’ve been alternating the location of my Jasmine on a weekly basis or so. When I have it in the main living space, during weekends I have it on interval mode all day long. During the week, since we’re only around for a short period in the morning while we’re getting ready for work and daycare, I put it on continuous mode so we can get a burst of happiness to start our day.
When I have it in our bedroom, I put it on interval mode right after I put my daughter to bed and that way our room becomes a dreamland by the time we go to bed.
This is my first aroma diffuser and I’m hooked! I need at least two so I can keep one downstairs and another one in our bedroom. That way I can breathe in the wonderful scents all day long!
In Canada you can get Stadler Form products from EcoBrandsNow. The Jasmine comes in six different colours and I absolutely love the lime! I feel that it livens up the place. What colour would you choose?
Stadler Form has four aroma diffuser models. Do you see a model you like?
