The SOiL aromatic diffuser


Room diffusers are the height of millennial sophistication. It’s true!  We may not be able to afford a house, car, or health insurance, but we make sure our space smells amazing.

But reed diffusers – although super cute in their own way – aren’t the most effective at what a home fragrance aims to do. Even when you make an effort with maintenance (yes, turning a handful of reeds does count as maintenance in our world, huni), after a while the only way you can smell it is in the kind of close proximity that would normally warrant a restraining order.

For a few hundred more, you can bag yourself an electric diffuser that works hard for your money. SOiL came through dripping with this Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser (R600) that sprays a cool mist of essential oil-infused water into the air surrounding it, helping fragrance molecules to travel.

Use it with SOiL’s long list of organic oils, and have fun creating your own blends. If you’re looking for a place to start, why not use one of these tried-and-loved recipes?

Winter warmer blend:

  • 3 drops Cinnamon Leaf Oil
  • 2 drops Sweet Orange Oil
  • 1 drop Clove Oil
  • 1 Drop Ginger Oil

Bedtime Blend:

  • 3 drops Lavender
  • 2 drops Cedarwood
  • 2 drops Bergamot

Energy Blend:

  • 3 drops Lemon
  • 2 drops Rosemary
  • 1 drop Peppermint

    sounds like a wonderful way to keep your home smelling amazing…quick question are they hypo-allergenic? some of these products really cause havoc with the sinuses.

    This sounds amazing, but I think the price is a bit ridiculous! AND you have to buy the different types of oils which is another expense.

      Hey Rachelle! Room diffusers do go for around this price – it’s actually the cheapest one I’ve seen. Home fragrances have become expensive over the last few years though, with some candles upwards of R700. At least with this, you can use it again, and the essential oils will last way longer. You could also try incense – it makes a bit of a mess but it’s affordable, and adds a smoky texture to the smell. Just make sure to buy ethically-made incense sticks! – Alez
