Organic Aromas review





If you are new to my blog and simply landed on this review let me give you a brief introduction. I am a mother of five sons and a VTCT qualified complementary therapist Level 3 (Aromatherapy, advanced massage therapist, and advanced reflexology) I am also a lady that can no longer practice my profession due to chronic illness so I prefer to use my expertise to write about complementary and alternative therapies for chronic illness.

I am a chronic illness lifestyle blogger.

I have been given this product as part of a product review through the chronic illness bloggers network   Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.



Organic Aromas is a company specialising in aromatherapy diffusers. They describe themselves as "a company comprised of a group of passionate health care professionals dedicated to enriching and improving the lives of people all over the world." (source)

I was so pleased to be asked to try out one of their products as I love aromatherapy.

As a Mum of five sons, two dogs, and a tortoise I do love some pleasing fragrance within my home. Three of us are asthmatic so chemical air fresheners are a massive NO!

This diffuser seemed ideal for my family needs.

The one I was gifted to review was Organic Aromas Raindrop Essential Oil Diffuser
To purchase one would cost $95 so around £71 in Britain.

The box arrived containing my diffuser all packaged very secure in a bed of foam. Although it looked very self-explanatory I did wonder how it worked.





The diffuser works by electric and came with a DC voltage adapter. There is no heat involved at all and no water or other chemicals. It works by simply diffusing the oil into the air without diluting its purity. 

The company claims: 

 "our diffuser allows for complete, effective dispersal and reliable rendering of both the natural scent and the therapeutic value of 100% pure organic essential oils." (Source)

Diffuser uses a unique theorem of fluid dynamics called the Bernoulli principle. Here is a picture to explain it. In short, the essential oil is made into tiny particles by a fast stream of air. These tiny particles are diffused out of the top of the glass cap in a light vapour.


With this knowledge of how it works, I set about building my diffuser. It is literally that simple a child could do it, blindfolded. The glass upper part slots into the hole in the wooden part and plug the DC adapter into the wooden part. That is it!

Enclosed in the box is a small manual that explains how to set up and how to wash. If you own a diffuser you must maintain it as the company advises.  Always ensure that you wash the glass parts if you have used thicker oils or if you have not used it for a while. This is the main reason with diffusers that people claim "it worked great, to begin with then just stopped" 

The micro tubes are very delicate. 



Being an aromatherapist it was rather odd for me to use other oils than the ones I am used to. I have a favourite synergistic blend of oils that I simply melt with the aroma.

I absolutely adore:
  • Lemon Grass
  • Rose Absolute
  • Ylang Ylang
My review was to use the oils that came with the unit so I filled up the glass chamber as instructed.

The Organic Aromas Signature Blend was a combination of:

  • Elemi- This oil is used for rites of passage, initiation, and new beginnings. It helps with letting go of preconceptions and old ideas. It is superb to focus the mind during meditation. It can inspire hope and revitalize the spirit in times of stress.
  • Clary Sage- This oil is associated with vision. It is used to clear the third eye. It lifts the spirit and helps with detachment from emotionally difficult or painful situations. Acts as a great anti-depressant. Essential for women's illness such as PMT and period cramps.                          -Clary Sage should be avoided during pregnancy.
  • Cajeput- This is a purifying oil and can get rid of all kinds of intruding energies and negative influences. Focus for the mind. Superb for congestion.
  • Bergamont- This is an excellent oil for stress and tension headaches. Relaxing, comforting yet stimulating. 
  • Chamomile- This oil is excellent for stress and tension. It is deeply relaxing and balancing and soothes raw nerves.
Although this would never be the oil combination of my choice I decided to give it a go. In many ways, a change is a superb boost to your olfactory system. The aromatherapy properties of this blend sounded wonderful for my needs. 

The powers of aromatherapy are not simply to enhance the smell of a room, they have medicinal and spiritual properties that are simply magical.




The diffuser gave a soft mist into the air that was visible to the eye if close to the unit. Colour changing LED lights within added to the ambience of the room. 

There is no sound at all from the diffuser and I could smell the aroma instantly that travelled through to my hallway. 

Low energy usage is super and the two minutes on, and one minute off is very effective. 


I have been using this in many areas within my home:

  • Placed in my son's bedroom with gentle calming aromatherapy oils. Prior to their sleep I simply switch the unit on and they sleep so relaxedly. Prior to this, I could never trust an oil burner due to the naked flame. This is marvelous as it has an auto shut off after 2 hours if I forget to turn it off.
  • In the living room during the day as a little mini aroma boost to keep the room smelling fresh. Then at evening with calming oils and candles. 
  • After meal prep in the kitchen, a few minutes of diffusion makes the kitchen as good as new.
  • During meditation daily.

The signature blend is not for me, we all have different tastes in what oils we can tolerate. 

There are many other blends on their web page  so maybe I will have a look at different options.

If you know aromatherapy blends and oil properties like I do you may prefer to use your own like I have, just avoid the really thick consistency oils. 

You can ask them any questions direct 
via their social media 



There are also superb hand carved wooden ones if you feel like something special. Even without the carving, these make a beautiful eye-catching addition to any room or workplace.

Let me know what you think if you decide to purchase one. 

Love and gentle hugs

  3. Great product! First diffuser I have ever owned and I love it. Lots of different designs to choose from! I love that the oils are not being diluted, and I am therefore able to get the most out of them.
