InnoGear Cool Mist Humidifier Diffuser
I have a humidifier/diffuser that was almost $100 and I use it almost every night next to my bed and it helps me tremendously with my allergies. Now my son has allergies and when he would get sick I would take my diffuser down and put it in his room and add eucalyptus oil, but then I didn’t have anything to use and I knew if I used one more regularly in his room he wouldn’t get sick as often. That is where this diffuser/humidifier comes in.
I have to admit coming from a $100 unit I didn’t have high hopes for this one, I thought there was no way it could possibly be as good as mine but there is a possibility I was wrong (don’t tell my husband, he doesn’t know that happens :-D). The major difference between my expensive one and this one (other than mine doesn’t light up) is that this one has a filter so in long run it will cost a little bit of money. Click HERE for replacement filter information. That being said, the filter only needs to be replaced after using it 500 hours.
It says that this is a whisper quiet diffuser and that is an understatement because I couldn’t hear this running at all. This was easy to fill and you just use room temperature tap water in it. There is a small tray to add essential oils which is good because if you are adding essential oils to the water it is not good for your machine over a long period of time. I like that not only does this light up, there are 7 different light colors and the light works independently from the unit. You can use the light without running the humidifier and vice versa. The other good thing about the light is that when it is on you can see roughly how much water is left in the machine.
I ran this diffuser for over 8 hours on the lowest setting and it was still running, I bet it could have gone at least another 2-3 hours. The scent from my essential oil did dissipate before that but it is really easy to add more without even having to turn off the machine. The top of this turns 360 degrees so you can point it in whatever direction you want. This unit is roughly 12″H x 24″ around and the cord is 44″ long.
I am very impressed with this humidifier and I’m hoping that between that and some essential oils my son will stay nice and healthy and if nothing else at least I know the light on it will comfort him. 🙂
