This new Tenswall aromatherapy diffuser was packaged in a plain eco friendly brown box free from the usual hard to open blister packs or garish packaging. Given the nature of the product what better way could there be to present it?Inside the box was the main diffuser itself, a power supply with a UK plug, a plastic measuring jug and a well written and easy to read User Guide (which I include on the end of my unboxing video).
To operate the device is simplicity itself. Detach the the top of the unit from the base, fill the unit with water to the indicated mark on the tank, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, replace the top, plug in and switch on. There are just two buttons only. The first button controls the light, one press turns it on and begins a 15 second cycles through the seven colours, a second short press will lock it to your selected colour, press again to turn the light off. Long press on a chosen colour to switch between high and dim light. The second controls the misting period and there are four modes of use: continuous misting, six hours of misting, three hours on, one hour on, misting off. In normal use the device will run for up to ten hours of misting before turning itself off. Long press to select between the two misting levels. Should it run dry before then the misting process will automatically switch off to prevent over heating.
The diffuser is nicely designed and should sit well in a home, office or clinical environment, the lighting is subtle and unobtrusive and the misting process is pleasant and can lift or give atmosphere to the room. With a 400ml tank capacity it is larger and longer burning than many of the rival units. Be aware that due to the nature of the misting process some water may be precipitated around the device so do not locate it close to sensitive objects. This diffuser can emit a large amount of mist, more so than most of the others I have tried, which is a good or bad thing according to your outlook.
Of the several diffusers I have experimented with this is one perhaps the best as it simple to use, looks good and works well. It is a little less expensive than some which can only be for the good. At the current Amazon price of £22.99 it is a very decent buy.
