doTERRA only sells two kinds of diffusers and they don’t make them themselves.  They are just a reseller of them.  The doTERRA blog has a comparison of the two that is quite good.  I don’t have any experience with other oil diffusers, like the ones on AromaTools.com but I have used both the Lotus Diffuser and the Aroma Ace diffuser a lot.  The reason there are two different diffusers is because they are quite different and which one you like better will depend on what you are looking for.  Here are the pros and cons as I see them:

Lotus Diffuser

It looks nice and has a light.  You put a little water in it mixed with oils and it’s like a little humidifier.  The Lotus diffuser  won’t stay on for more than an hour and will only run up to three hours without having to refill.  You also have to clean it a lot or it gets water deposits.  I had mine on my kitchen counter for a long time and it got knocked over so many times and then I was just cleaning up messes and wasting oils and I had to keep it clean or it wouldn’t work.  Plus, having to constantly turn it back on and refill it drove me crazy.  It is very quiet to run though but when I tried to run it in my room at night, the light drove me crazy


Aroma Ace Diffuser

To me, it is worth What is the Best doTERRA Oil Diffuser? - MyNaturalFamily.com #doterra #diffuserthe little bit of extra money for the Aroma Ace Diffuser.  The main drawback is that it’s pretty noisy.  If it’s running in your kitchen in the day you don’t even hear it but in your bedroom at night, it drives my husband crazy but I find it to be a soothing white noise.  I run one in my bedroom every night with Vetiver in it.  It’s been in there for like two months and it’s not even half way gone.  I run it on high the whole night.  Vetiver is a really thick oil though so that’s not normal.  If you ran a regular oil on high all night, it would last about a week.  So that’s expensive in my book.  So what I do is my son wakes up if he doesn’t have Serenity on his neck and he is hooked on the white noise of the diffuser and it is a good backup to the Serenity on his neck, so I fill up empty Serenity bottles and screw them on once a week.  It’s enough to do something but then it just helps me use up the last of my oils.  I do the same thing in the kitchen with my used oils so we just have constant random smells in our house but it’s all good.  I run it in my kitchen day and night and only have to worry about it every 4-5 days so I love it.  I have three of them in my house and I’m thinking of getting another one for my daughter’s room.  They are durable and I haven’t had a problem with any of them.  There is only one little tiny light on it so you know it’s on so that’s another thing I like about them.

    Thank you so much for all the information you share it is very Helpful. I am trying to decide between the aroma ace and the aroma lite. My son Has anxiety and a friend said that the aroma ace seem to really get the oils into the system and do a better job in helping with anxiety. He is going away to school and I don’t want to have him stop doing it because it is noisy. My friend uses the ace on the lowest setting and the oils last about a month. Is the sound annoying on the lowest setting?…decisions decisions :) lol

    • Rebecca says

      If you put it on the very lowest setting but it’s not nearly as annoying as up high but you can still hear it. It’s hard to explain. My son likes the noise. He thinks it is soothing and I think it’s a good white noise.

    Hi :)
    1. When you said you fill up empty Serenity bottles and screw them on once a week…what do you fill them up with?
    2. If I ran the Aroma Ace on low through the night, with something like Breathe, how long would a bottle last?
    Thank you very much :)

    • Rebecca says

      I put a few drops of Serenity in the bottle and fill the rest up with water. On low all night, any oil besides Vetiver will last around 3-7 days so it’s not the cheapest thing ever. That’s why I really like the Aroma Lite diffuser.

    Thank you for this post. My family has had several upper respiratory infections this winter and I am dealing with a major sinus infection that just won’t go away and I am hoping a diffuser can help.

    • Rebecca says

      Yes. I really need to add that to this post, huh? I love the Aroma Lite, which is annoying cause I have like 3 Aroma Aces already. I still use the Aroma Ace in my kitchen all day cause it runs all day and is less work than the Aroma Lite. I love to Aroma Lite for bedroom though cause it is really quiet and you can turn the light off. The Aroma Ace is noisy. I love how the Aroma Lite is kind of like a mini humidifier too cause the humid air helps with your immune system – but it’s not enough to cause problems with white dust and all. I don’t know how to describe it but I think the Aroma Lite just helps better if we get a little stuffy we just diffuse Breathe and the we’re not stuffy the next morning. We’ve had it a few months and haven’t had a chance to try it on a real cold (which is super, duper awesome, BTW). You do have to fill it up every night but it’s not that big of a deal. The other thing we use it for is for my son every night we put Citrus Bliss in it and he says it helps him not have bad dreams.

        I’m also looking into the Aroma Lite..

        question. Is it as annoying/messy to clean and refill as the Lotus? about the same, or harder, or easier?


        with the 15sec on 15sec off option, does the light stay on the whole time, or does it blink too? (because that would get annoying…)

        Also, you say it’s a humidifier… don’t they all act as humidifiers?

        Thanks in advance for ur insight and response :)

        • Rebecca says

          I think the Aroma Lite is easier to clean because you can get at it better. I think the light stays on the whole time but my Lotus diffuser has been in my basement for a long time so I’m not sure. The Aroma Ace is not like a humidifier. It only atomizes the oils. You don’t add any water to the oils.

    Thank you for the info. I am just getting in to oils and am trying to research what diffuser to get. I have a child with asthma who seems to catch every cold in the vicinity. I am constantly disinfecting and running this with onguard I am hoping will help with germs.
