What is the difference between The Atomiser and the Home Fragrancer?
The Atomiser uses nebulising technology, which uses pressurised air to disperse and diffuse the liquid essential oils into the air. This means no heat is required to diffuse the oils. The Home Fragrance requires you to place a couple of drops of essential oil onto the stone, which then heats up, causing the essential oil to evaporate into the air.
What is nebulising/Atomising technology?
Nebulising technology uses pressurised air to disperse and diffuse the pure liquid essential oils into the air in a micro fine mist. This means no heat or water is required, maintaining the purity of the oils to fill your home with the power of Aromatherapy.
