With my family being lovers of both Halloween/Fall decorations and oil diffusers, getting this pumpkin shaped oil diffuser was a no-brainer, and I'm so glad we did! While notquite as large as a standard oil diffuser, this holds only 50ml less, the shape and colors of it are perfect to add to your home's Autumn celebrations. Once you fill the resivoir with water (350ml) and add your choice of scented oil (try Macintosh Apple!), just turn it on and watch the steamy mist come out the top. It puts out just as much mist as its bigger brethern, filling even a large room with your chosen scent in only a matter of moments. The buttons are easy to operate, having the same set-up and function as regular diffusers. This allows you to set the amount of time you want it to erupt the mist into the air as well as to choose which color you want the ring going around the middle to show. There are 6 colors to choose from, or you can have it alternate betwen all of them.
Filling it is a snap with the included cup, it takes two cups worth of water to fill it to the easily seen fill line. Then just add 12 to 15 drops of your prefered scented oil (3-5 drops per 100 ml). Place the top on, aligning the inside of the top with the bottom section, and hit the ON button. Then watch the mist roll out of the pumpkin's stem! The only thing I would change about this is to have the stem section a green color instead of the clear, however this is so that the stem will light up to whatever color you choose. You can choose it to light up green, so this is only a small point and nothing worth taking a star away from.
We are planning to take some electrical tape and cutting it into shapes like eyes, a nose, and a mouth to make this little guy look like a Jack-O-Lantern for Halloween and then making it the center of a cornucopia for fall. Just get some small plastic fruit and gourds from the dollar store, place the oil diffuser on a platter, and place the plastic decorations around it for a nifty decoration! Neat, huh?
We really couldn't be happier with our purchase of this oil diffuser. I wish that companies would make other shapes as well, say a football, soccer ball, etc. This is a fantastic addition to our decorating and the fact that it works so well makes this a purchase that we don't regret!
