My articles surround a variety of topics from health and beauty, fashion and tattoos to mental health.

Aromatherapy and Self-Care

Self-care looks different for everyone. While some will find pleasure in carving out their own ritualistic routines of bubble baths and yoga, before finally curling up with a good book; others might find solace in simply taking time out of their chaotic lifestyles to binge-watch a favourite Netflix show with a generous-sized mug of tea in the company of their cat (guilty!). But perhaps one thing we all have in common, is that we would like whichever forms of health and wellbeing preservation techniques we choose to indulge in, to easily slot into our busy modern lives.

Where in the past aromatherapy was thought to be a luxury exclusive to spas and salons, these days anyone can turn their home into a serene paradise. Plus with over 90 different essential oils available, and each one promising a wealth of physical and emotional benefits ranging anywhere from clear skin to inner-peace and spiritual healing, their use can be easily tailored to suit the needs of each individual.

For many, this is why essential oil diffusers and aromatherapy, have become so appealing—not to mention the fact they make your home smell divine!

Like the majority of people, my own introduction to aromatherapy started online, and after reading more about the life-changing results others had experienced, I took the plunge and decided to try one for myself.


Aromaworks London USB/Battery Operated Essential Oil Diffuser

Being one of the cheapest on the market with an attractive price point of £14.99, the Aromaworks London Battery Operated Essential Oil Diffuser immediately caught my attention.

Not only is it much cheaper than the majority of its competitors, but true to its name, it conveniently doesn't require a fuse or water to work; which makes it in my opinion, the perfect introductory product for those who haven't had much experience using these increasingly popular machines.

As well as the attractive price tag, I was also really interested in the size of the product. Being only slightly larger than that of a human palm, the Aromaworks Diffuser is the perfect compact device to pop on any flat surface, in-work office space or even take traveling abroad. The opportunities to use this product are truly endless.

Personally, I was intrigued to see what it could do (if anything) for my nightmarish sleeping habits, and any other benefit on top of that would have been a gratefully welcomed bonus.


About the Product

Essential oil diffusers are famed for their sleek and modern designs, and the Aromaworks London Diffuser is no different. The simplistic dome-shaped device features a fan (which is what disperses the chosen scent instead of the traditional water system), an easily removable cap allowing for the absorbing pads to be changed without any hassle, and a series of pulsing lights to create a calming atmosphere.

As is standard practice with diffusers, the product doesn't come with any complementary oils, however, the box does include two packets full of absorbing pads which each last around 1–2 weeks of daily use of the same oil.


My Experience

The product was incredibly easy to set up and after popping tree triple A's in the battery compartment, I was ready to go.

Since my trouble was with sleeping, I had opted to use lavender essential oil which soaked into the diffuser pads without any trouble at all, but similarly to other reviewers, I soon discovered that the recommended number of 5-7 drops simply wasn't enough to create a noticeable fragrance with this product. Instead, I actually ended up using 12–13 drops to get the strength I was hoping for!

One turned on, the diffuser started whirring away and I found watching the lights pulse through a rainbow of colours was very relaxing—though sleeping with it on proved rather difficult, so I instead decided to use it for around one hour each night before going to bed.

The main downside I found with this product is that it goes through batteries in hardly any time at all, rendering what was a core selling point effectively useless. But in spite of my gripes, I have noticed a positive difference in my sleep quality since I began using this diffuser and if nothing else, the scent alone is very appealing and lasts hours (though I believe this might be down to the quality of the essential oils I have been using).

Very affordable
Requires more drops of essential oil for the scent to be noticeable
Ideal for beginners
The sound of the fan/colours might put you off sleeping
Perfect size for travelling
Goes through batteries very quickly
Doesn't take up much space
Not available from many shops
Has a range of soothing colours

Do I Recommend It?

If you're looking for a high-end product that can compete with the latest aromatherapy technologies, then this product is not for you. However, what I would say is that although the product does have its downsides, I still feel that Aromaworks London is offering amazing value for money with this model, which does its job of offering beginners the chance to immerse themselves in the world of essential oils and aromatherapy without paying a steep price from the start.
