I am excited to share one of my very favorite things with you today! After Chris and I got married, I really wanted to give our home a little makeover to freshen things up and have a new vibe for the start of our married life. On our honeymoon as we were exploring Copenhagen, we were introduced to the concept of ‘Hygge’, which is all about the art of happiness, creating magic in ordinary moments and living well.
I learned that despite the often cold, dreary weather and high costs of living, the Danish people are ranked among the happiest in the world! Quite extensive research was done to uncover what it is that fosters this happiness and the concept of Hygge pretty much explains it all. A key aspect is making your home a sanctuary through things which nourish your soul and senses… candles and scents are very easy examples of this. There are also celebrations through the year that are full of Hygge, Christmas with it’s special traditions and family focus, is a prime example.
Chris knows I’ve always been a little obsessed with creating beautiful atmospheres, perfect lighting and adding fun little touches to regular things, it was just brilliant to finally have a name to explain it all! So he bought me The Little Book of Hygge before we left Copenhagen and I’ve been soaking up every page. It was written by Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute (what an amazing job that would be!). It’s a lovely coffee table book too! Inspired by everything I’ve learned in The Little Book of Hygge and without spending a fortune, I have found a few things that have made a huge difference and helped me create a beautiful and relaxing home environment, with the fresh, modern and fun vibes we want our home to have.
The Little Book of Hygge is beautiful to read and we couldn’t have discovered this at a more perfect time. I said to Chris that I want to create a home and life together that is full of Hygge, after all it’s family, friends and the little things in life that light up your soul… that’s what Hygge is all about.
In addition to soft furnishings, rugs, artwork and a few other little touches, which I’ll continue to share more of soon, there’s been one item that has made such a wonderful impact! As I’m sure many of you would agree, there’s something so amazing about a beautifully scented home. I searched everywhere for the perfect way to achieve this and found this Organic Aromas Essential Oil Diffuser. Whether we’re relaxing on the lounge catching up on favorite shows or entertaining friends, we have both come to appreciate and really look forward to using our pretty diffuser each day… and of course choosing which scent we want to use!
Organic Aromas Essential Oil Diffuser Review
I have always been a huge lover perfumes, candles and scents, they help to create a vibe, enhance the atmosphere and uplift how you feel. We have ours running every day and if I can share one major point of difference that sets this diffuser apart from anything else I have tried before, it is that the scent travels incredibly well. I just got so sick of spending money on expensive candles, diffuser sticks, oil burners or humidifiers that did not spread a scent you could actually smell without having your nose in direct contact! Major applause needs to be given to the engineers, artists and business team behind Organic Aromas – they’ve created such a high quality product that completely delivers (and far surpasses) what they say.
When we turn the diffuser on, within minutes I can smell essential oil at the other end of our large living room… and after around 5 – 10 minutes, the scent travels upstairs and finds it’s way into the bedrooms and bathrooms, filling our home beautifully with pure essential oil. It’s been so great having the diffuser on while we’re watching tv downstairs in the evening, then walking up to bed and as my head hits the pillow, I love laying there enveloped with the delicate aroma before falling peacefully asleep.
The diffuser is fully automated and runs for two hours before turning off (I think this is such a great feature, as I always turn it on and just forget… probably because the essential oils make me so relaxed!). During this time, the diffuser cycles intermittently to diffuse the perfect amount into the air.
Over the years I have tried so many different candles, oil burners and diffuser stick sets, but nothing has worked as incredibly well as this essential oil diffuser. I did a lot of research before choosing this one and the unique difference with Organic Aromas essential oil diffuser sets is that, unlike the other heated units on the market or those made of plastic or humidifier diffusers, the Organic Aromas diffuser works without heating up the oils and without the need to add water to the diffuser. This was an incredibly attractive quality for me, as it means the essential oils are kept 100% pure (and not diluted by water), which makes it so much more powerful and ensures we get the full therapeutic, health and wellness benefits of essential oils. Plus, as it doesn’t use water this means my house doesn’t fill with moisture particles or humidity (which are not good constantly being pushed onto walls or furniture).
There are lots of diffuser designs to choose, however as a standard each set includes the diffuser and a bottle of essential oil to start your journey.
You’ll also find a large range of pure essential oils and essential oil blends, I couldn’t narrow it down to just one as I love using different oils depending on my mood and how I feel from day to day. Given this, we went with The Elements Premium Essential Oils Collection, which includes the Inspire box collection and the Awaken box collection – a complete set of ten different oils. It’s been so much fun for Chris and I to choose the scents we want to use each day, they are all genuinely beautiful and each fill our home so perfectly. Every time we’ve had friends of family over, the second they walked through the door they have commented “oh it smells beautiful in here, what is that?” … and then of course I get to show off our fabulous diffuser and share the different oils with them.
Our essential oil collection includes premium essential oil blends including Ocean Breeze, a mix of Peppermint, Sweet Fennel, Cajeput, Lime, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Coriander (I have this on right now and it’s just gorgeous!), Welcome Home with Pine, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Jasmine, Tagetes and Petigrain, as well as Morning Bloom a fresh blend of Geranium, Jasmine, Patchouli, Ylang ylang, Palmarosa and Sweet Orange.
My essential oil diffuser operates so quietly and I love the clean, stylish design – we have been moving it around to decide where to place it permanently, but it suits the decor anywhere in our home (so it makes choosing only one spot hard!). I was really impressed by the quality of the Organic Aromas diffuser – it is really well made and the solid wood base combined with the beautiful glass components make for a very luxe looking device. At the back of the diffuser, there is a little knob to control the intensity level (which I love, as if we have all the windows open I will have it on more, or of an evening we just turn it down to the lowest setting and it is just the right amount to delicately fill our home). There is also a pretty white light inside, which can be turned on and off by a touch button at the back. So clever!

I also must say their after sale care and customer service is exceptional, which says so much about a company – I love shopping with people who truly value and appreciate their customers. Oh and I’m clearly not the only one who is thrilled with the Organic Aromas Essential Oil Diffusers and customer service… I always check reviews these days before I get anything and their reviews are amazing.
