This is a very nice looking, well made and multipurpose addition to any room in your home. It’s an ultrasonic cool mist humidifier, which is especially good to use in the dry winter months. Also can be used for diffusing essential oils, a very popular use! It’s whisper quiet and lasts well over 5 hours. Great for men or women with its attractive black Woodgrain color and portable size. Definitely recommend and I have a brown one also!
