Summary: This essential oil diffuser is a great product, especially for the price. If you're looking for one that looks great in any room and doesn't require much maintenance, buy one today!
Right out of the box, I loved the look of the InnoGear Real Bamboo essential oil diffuser, it looks just like it does in the pictures. Here's what it looks like on my dark wood nightstand.
It is a nice accent piece for a bedroom, kitchen, living room, anywhere! It is also small enough to fit between other items such as a lamp or some pictures. Here are some more pictures of it on my nightstand compared to a lamp, as well as a water bottle.
As you can see, it is quite compact and able to fit in many tight spots.
Using The InnoGear Real Bamboo Diffuser
The diffuser came with a small instruction manual, which succinctly sums up all you need to know - no need for a whole book of instructions. To fill up your essential oil diffuser correctly, just add water at or below the MAX line (I just use tap water right from the sink), and press the left button to turn it on!
You can change the timer settings by pressing the left button again. The color will indicate what mode it is currently in. Here's an easy guide to follow:
- Yellow - continuous mode - will constantly run in misting mode
- Red - intermittent misting
- Blue - sets the diffuser on a 1 hour timer
- Green - sets diffuser on a 2 hour timer
The button on the right allows you to control the LED color, 7 in total. The first press will automatically cycle between the colors, the second press will stay on the current color, and a third press of the button will turn the LED off. Below is a quick video showing the InnoGear Real Bamboo essential oil diffuser running through the LED cycle mode.
This video also displays how quiet the diffuser runs. Great for use right next to your bed to help you get a nice, relaxing sleep!
