Saje essential oil diffusers bring the powerful properties of nature indoors. Diffusers emulate our natural ecosystem by producing negative ions, which have the same renewing effect as standing next to a waterfall.
What is a diffuser?
Sometimes also called ultrasonic diffusers, a diffuser is a device that breaks down water molecules and 100% pure essential oils into a fine, cool mist. That mist is dispersed throughout the room, creating a pleasant aroma in the air, while each essential oil added to it can benefit our health through aromatherapy. Each Saje diffuser also creates negative ions, which are believed to neutralize pollutant aggressors and enhance well-being.
Home diffusers used to scent a space and provide aromatherapeutic benefits are inspired by the technology of a medical device called a nebulizer, used to administer medications quickly and directly into the lungs. Learn more about diffusers What Is A Diffuser?
How does a diffuser work?
Diffuser instructions are easy to follow, but very important in keeping your unit functioning optimally. Fill the unit using cool, clean tap water. A best practice is to pour water from a vessel into the unit, rather than filling the unit under the running tap water, to avoid water entering sensitive parts of the diffuser like the air vents, which can cause your unit to malfunction.
Be careful not to fill the unit past the “max fill” line, which is clearly visible on the inner tank of any Saje essential oil diffusers. Filling past this line can result in the cool mist becoming trapped in the unit and causing leakage or overflow. Learn more about how diffusers work here.
What benefits do diffusers provide?
Diffusers produce negative ions—tasteless, odorless, and colorless molecules that pack a punch when it comes to wellness. Think of the way you feel taking a deep breath in the forest, near a waterfall, or at the beach. That boost of happiness, release from stress, and natural surge in energy levels are some of the “side effects” of breathing fresh, clear air. A diffuser is designed to mimic that.
Essential oil diffusers allow you to add aromatherapy according to your personal goals and scent preferences. If you want to feel bliss and harmony, enjoy the smells of spring and summertime, or always bring fresh flowers home, you might prefer our popular Goddess blend. If you want to lift your mood and feel energized or crave fresh and juicy scents, you might benefit from our best-selling citrusy blend, Liquid Sunshine. If you want to be transported to the outdoors or feel your best while on a crisp walk in the forest, you might love our woodsy and fresh blend, Rain Forest.
Diffusers and diffuser blends allow you to personalize how you want your home to feel—a space of energy, rest, tranquility, and so on. If you want to feel alert while you work from home, consider an energizing blend like Use Elevateforcheerfulness, happiness, and optimism in your space. Or get Unwindfor a peaceful and balancing blend to bring harmony and a state of groundedness to both the body and mind.
What are the best diffusers?
The best diffusers are the ones you like the most. The functionality of our essential oil diffusers is essentially the same; an ultrasonic vibrating disc breaks up water and pure essential oils to create fine, cool mist. The biggest differences when it comes to selecting diffusers are largely aesthetic: colour, size, and material preference. Choosing diffusers that you’re excited about aesthetically—and where you place them in your space—will encourage you to use them each day. Learn more about how to select the best diffusers here.
Diffuser buying guide
When considering purchasing an essential oil diffuser, there are two key things to keep in mind:
What size room are you planning to use the diffuser in? Certain diffusers are better suited to certain room sizes and square footage.
What type of materials do you prefer? (ceramic, plastic, cement, etc.) Some people have a preference based on having pets or children in the home, for example.
Saje diffusers are available in a variety of designs to fit the aesthetic of your home. Each diffuser is highly functional, with features like LED lights and both continuous and intermittent run-time functionalities. Our community loves the sleek, chic, and design-forward look of our best-selling essential oil diffusers:
Aroma Om white ceramic and Aroma Om gray cement stone: these diffusers offer a 3–6 hour run-time based on continuous or intermittent settings and offer an optional cool-toned LED light for ambiance. These styles are best suited to small- to medium-sized spaces, like bedrooms, offices, or bathrooms.
Aroma Om Deluxe white ceramic and Aroma Om Deluxe gray cement stone: our largest and longest-running diffusers, these styles can be set to run in 1-, 3-, or 6-hour intervals, or can be placed on continuous high or low settings that can run for 11 to 22 hours. These units also offer an LED-coloured light band that can be turned on or off when the diffuser is operating. These diffusers are best suited to medium- to large-sized spaces, like living rooms, dining rooms, or open-concept spaces.

Aroma Nook vanilla or denim: designed with a textured herringbone pattern showcased in two neutral colorways, this diffuser offers a 4 to 8 hour run-time with both continuous and intermittent settings. Also included is a warm-toned optional LED light and a USB-powered charging cord with a standard electrical outlet adapter. These diffusers are best suited to small- to medium-sized spaces, like bedrooms, offices, or bathrooms.
Head to the Saje library (A.K.A. our blog) for more support in learning how to use a diffuser and how to choose diffuser blends:
Diffusers are safe to use in the home because they are heat- and flame-free and because each unit has an auto-shutoff feature. Once the water has emptied from the water tank and can no longer be detected by the sensors in the unit, the diffuser will automatically turn off and remain off until it is refilled and turned on again.
The lifespan of your essential oil diffuser depends largely on how you care for and maintain it. Our diffusers are designed and created with durable and long-lasting materials, intended to bring refreshed and revitalized air into your space for years to come.
Things to know
The number one reason for malfunction on our diffusers is directly related to the cleanliness of the unit. Though quick and simple to do, it is imperative to clean the diffuser regularly (depending on usage, we recommend every 1–2 weeks) to remove residue and buildup from inside the water tank and near the ultra-sensitive ultrasonic disc. We recommend our diffuser care kit and a gentle rinse with a small amount of water to keep your diffuser fresh, clean, and functioning optimally.
To prevent accidental leaks when using your diffuser, always ensure the diffuser is placed on a solid, sturdy surface like a coffee table, kitchen counter, or nightstand.
Take care to only fill your diffuser to the recommended “max fill” line, indicated in the inner tank of each of our units. Overfilling your diffuser can result in leakage or malfunction of your unit.
When filling your diffuser, bring water directly to your unit in a small measuring cup or vessel, rather than filling your diffuser with water directly from the tap. It’s important to be mindful not to splash water into the air filters or motor of the diffuser, which can result in malfunction.
Can I use any brand of essential oils?
What matters most when choosing essential oil diffuser blends is related to the purity of the oils. Diffusers are intended to be used with only 100% pure essential oils that do not contain any carrier oils like coconut oil, grapeseed, or jojoba. Using carrier oils in a diffuser can cause it to malfunction, as these oils are too thick to be broken up by the ultrasonic disc and can clog the unit.
The quality and efficacy of Saje diffuser blends are very high. We use 100% pure essential oils to create therapeutic and transformative aromas for your space. We strongly recommend only using Saje diffuser blends for this reason.
Use the instruction manual
The best way to learn about how to use your diffuser is through the instruction manual included in each box. This manual has a detailed breakdown of all the different parts of the unit and how to use them properly, including troubleshooting tips for any issues you may encounter.
The button breakdown
The majority of diffusers we offer at Saje have only one or two buttons. We design our units to be simple to use and understand, thus making them highly functional in your space.
If the diffuser you select offers an optional LED light feature, it will have its own separate button that allows you to turn the light on or off. The button that turns the unit on or off is also the button that allows you to place your diffuser in a continuous or intermittent setting if this function is offered.
Typically, pressing the button once will turn the unit on, pressing the button the second time will initiate the intermittent functionality (where the unit will run for 30 seconds, turn off for 30 seconds and then repeat), and pressing the button the third time will turn the unit off.
What do the Lights Mean?
The optional LED lights featured on some of our diffusers are intended to help create a gentle glow and an ambiance in any space not intended to be illuminating in the same way as a lamp or reading light. Think of diffuser lights as a nightlight or a candle-like glow.
