If someone were to ask me a few months ago whether I would ever own diffuser, I would have looked at them funny. That is until I went to Jamaica and got a massage at the resort I was staying at. In the massage room, they had an oil diffuser running with gentle music in the background. I was so relaxed, even before my massage began. When my RMT came into the room, I asked her what oil was in the diffuser. She had mentioned it was a mixture of sweet orange and peppermint. I kept that at the back of my head while enjoying my massage.

The AUKEY BE-A11 Essential Oil Diffuser

When AUKEY Canada reached out to me to see if I would like to review their BE-A11 Essential Oil Diffuser, I gladly accepted. We have used humidifiers in our house before, but have never used an oil diffuser. This was both.

As this was my first oil diffuser, I wanted to ensure I was using it properly, and enjoying the benefits. By diffusing different combinations of essential oils, I was able to fill my office with very fragrant scents. Because of the close proximity of my office to the front door of our house, you are able to smell the oils from my office as you walk in the front door. As the oils are not strong, it does not bother my head at all. Being subject to regular migraines, I was sure to pick fragrances that would not trigger a migraine. That would be counter-productive in putting an oil diffuser in my office.

In the last month or so, I can definitely see a difference in my stress levels. I am able to relax more while working, and enjoy sitting at my desk.

With so many types of oils to choose from, and recipes for combinations of oils, you are sure to find something you love. You can enjoy something different each day, or stick to the ones you love.

I like to match the oils and the LED lights on the diffuser to my moods as I start each day. If I want something relaxing, I use sweet orange with the orange light. If I want a pick-me-up, I use peppermint with the green light. You get the picture.

Essential Oils

Pretty much any essential oil will work with this diffuser. I was able to find some affordable oils on Amazon.ca. I picked up the 8-pack ArtNaturals Therapeutic-Grade Aromatherapy Essential Oil Set for $29.95, and this ArtNaturals Aromatherapy Top-16 Essential Oil Set for $33.95. There is no need to splurge $30+ on same size bottles of essential oils when these are readily available and can be shipped to your home for minimal cost from Amazon.

The Verdict

The AUKEY BE-A11 Essential Oil Diffuser has helped me keep an ambient light on my office, humidity in the air, and a wonderful scent of my choosing. This essential oil diffuser will now sit on my desk, in my office, and keep me stress-free and relaxed while I work.

2 very relaxed thumbs up!
