ZAQ Diffuser Review and GIVEAWAY!
I was recently given the opportunity to review a ZAQ Dew Aromatherapy essential oil diffuser! (Even though the company gave me this diffuser, all opinions in this post are 100% mine, and thanks ZAQ! I’ve enjoyed the diffuser!) I’ve been interested in essential oils for awhile now and like the idea of my house smelling good, but with 2 kids ages 4 and under, candles just aren’t the safest option, if you know what I mean. So, when ZAQ offered to let me try a diffuser, I just couldn’t resist!
I’ve heard lots of great things about lavender essential oil so I knew as soon as I got my DEW diffuser in the mail, I had to try it out. See, I’ve got this baby who doesn’t want to sleep through the night yet and he’s pushing 15 months old… yeah, ouch, I know. BUT, I had read that lavender essential oil help calm and soothe and would help promote sleep and that diffusing it was one way to use the lavender oil. You could also go about making your own spray by putting it in a spray bottle and mixing it up… but that seems to be so much hassle for just a little bit of the smell at a time. I liked the idea of diffusing it continuously much better. About an hour before bedtime (and sometimes well before that if the kids are acting crazy!) I’ll start diffusing lavender essential oil in my Dew diffuser. It. Is. Wonderful.
Our floor plan is fairly open but this diffuser does a pretty good job of filling the space. I put it on a side table and we go about our business while its diffusing. The run time on the dew diffuser is 4 hours so it is perfect for an evening at home. And on the weekends, I fill it up more than once if we are home for stretches longer than 4 hours and I want to diffuser something yummy smelling Just make sure you don’t fill it up past the fill line (80ml) because I accidentally did that one night and it turned on but wouldn’t “smoke” and I finally figured out that I had just a tad too much water. But the diffuser comes with a little measuring cup that shows exactly how much water you will need so it shouldn’t be an issue.
The only thing I don’t like about this diffuser is that it won’t diffuse with no light. It has 3 light settings – one where it rotates colors (very cool looking!), the next where you can pause it on a certain color, and the last setting is a dark blue hue. If I could change just one thing about this diffuser it would be to have an additional setting where it would still diffuse with the light completely off, because when I put it in the baby’s room at night, I want it to be dark in there (remember, I’m trying to get him to sleep all night, not wake up and be able to do finger shadows on the wall!) and not have a lot of light. I’ve used the dark blue setting because that is that darkest that it will still diffuse, but I’d still love to see them come out with this same diffuser with that additional light setting. Otherwise, the light is pretty neat and I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it when we’ve had friends over. Plus, they love how awesome our house smells!
