Do you want a diffuser or a humidifier ?What is the difference?

Those of us who have kids will know that a humidifier is a very useful thing to have for those times  when they have a cold or some other illness resulting in difficulty with breathing. Humidity ie. warm moist air  is created by heating up a large container of water and allowing “steam”  to disperse throughout the room via a vent in the top of the container .

On the other hand a diffuser uses a much smaller receptacle for the water , does not heat the water and therefore offers less humidifying effects BUT it is much better at dispersing essential oils in their original state ie.not destroyed by heat.

If  your main aim is to purchase an effective essential oil  diffuser which also offer a small amount of humidity ,  I can recommend the Smiley Daisy Essential Oil Diffuser!

How do ultrasonic diffusers work ?

The Smiley Daisy Hibiscus  Essential Oil Diffuser is an ultrasonic diffuser which means that it doesnt use heat to make the vapor.  It has an ultrasonic water-oxygen diffusing feature (see ultrasonic vibration plate below)which maintains the molecular structure of the essential oils and allows for ease of absorption into your body. Heat has a detrimental effect on essential oil so you get better value using an  ultrasonic diffuser which dissipates the essential oil into the atmosphere in its original form combined with the water vapor.smiley-daisy-parts-working

Design and Colour Options

I particularly like the shape of the Smiley Daisy Hibiscus Essential  Oil Diffuser. Its simple oval design means it doesnt dominate any room or clash with other decorator pieces that I have . I have a lot of timber in my living areas so the walnut finish fits in there and I have white in my bedroom so the creamy white blends  in well in there! It has smiley-daisy-LED-essential-oil the 7 colour LED colour changing light ring around the middle which adds a bit of interest without being overwhelming! The LED lights change from blue to purple to green and pink fading in and out as they rotate from one to the next . Im not a big fan of  diffusers that completely change colour …..they make me feel like I’m in side show alley…not ideal when my aim is to feel calm !!! Also because the Hibiscus is relatively low and rather than tall there’s less chance of it being accidentally knocked over and its less obtrusive.


The Smiley Daisy Hibiscus is a good size for me! The dimensions are  approx 8.27″(21cms) x 6.58″ (16cms) x approx 3″(7cms) high. smiley-daisy-diffuserIt has a 350ml capacity compared to 120ml in some smaller ones which means  I dont have to keep adding water as is the case with some smaller ones.



What are Smiley Daisy Diffusers made from ?

The outer cover of the Daisy and Hibiscus models is made of polypropylene (PP). The lower base of the Hibiscus is made of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS for most of us ! ). Both materials are safe for all types of 100% essential oils. Some diffusers are not suitable for use with citrus oils because of the adverse reaction between the materials used in manufacture and the oils BUT  the Smiley Daisy Hibiscus Essential Oil Diffuser is fine for using all sorts of essential oils.

Which essential oil benefits which part of your body?

Aromatherapy oils don’t just smell nice!! These amazing essential oils work on our bodies and minds when these tiny little molecules are absorbed through our skin and airways. They are circulated around our bodies via our  blood stream .

 Research has shown essential oils  have been used both medical and psychological illness in very many cultures over many years .


Some other benefits of Aromatherapy diffusers include….

Safety.. … often do we hear about house fires started by a candle? Candles are beautiful but left unattended can be very  dangerous!

Cost .….they are cheaper than candles in the long run . A good quality candle can set you back as much as the cost of a diffuser but your candle is all used up thats it ! Admittedly , the essential oils for diffusers are an added cost but they last for a long time and give you a variety of aromas to suit your mood once you have collected a few different ones! Think Mothers Day , Christmas and birthday gift ideas !




Promotion of alpha brain waves which create  optimal learning ability .


Health benefits of diffusers with a humidifying option may include clearing nasal passages, sinuses, relieving headaches and more!

Enhanced mood .Essential oil particles are broken down into micro-molecules then dispersed  into the atmosphere as negative ions. The result is similar to that which you feel when you go to the beach where negative ions are abundant. They also increase levels of seratonin “the feel good ” hormone!

Stimulation of our senses by the different essential oil aromas

Improved appetite and sexual drive ( what a great benefit !!)

Increased our resistance to disease by helping to regulate or immune system .

Reduction of  anxiety and boosting energy levels.

Elimination of  pet odours or lingering fishy smells from last night’s dinner!


Calming oils may help with sleeplessness.

Stress reduction increasing productivity at work.


Beautiful aromas wafting throughout your home.

Harmonizing of  mind,  body and soul !

Essential Oils

Smiley Daisy recommends using ONLY pure essential oils. Please …NO perfume or cheap imitation oils please! They can clog up and /or damage the ultrasonic disc in your diffuser. The cheap oils may also contain “fillers” and a concoction of goodness knows what which could potentially make you feel worse…. not better ! If an oil is PURE it will be written on the bottle and all ingredients listed  !

NB. Essential oils are NOT included with diffuser .






Care of your Smiley Daisy Hibiscus Essential Oil Diffuser

Depending on usage you should clean your diffuser about twice a week if using every day or after it has been running for 6 hrs or more. Otherwise once a week should be fine which is what I do . Please adhere to the instructions included with your diffuser . DO NOT clean with or immerse in household detergent .You may void your warranty if you do not care for  as per instructions.


I think you can tell that I LOVE my Smiley Daisy Hibiscus Essential Oil Diffuser/s!  Well priced in the mid range , they both work  perfectly ! Easier and less messy than lighting candles (I could NEVER find the lighter anyway!!) which is what I used until I was given my first Hibiscus! Ive used them most days since Christmas 2016 when I received the first one as a gift and then I subsequently bought my second!  I definitely relax, work , sleep and feel better for using it and I cannot recommend it highly enough!

  1. Hi Ros,
    What a thorough review you have here. Who knew these could do so much! I have a humidifier for the kids. But that involved boiling the water inside the container and steaming the eucalyptus oil to assist with breathing etc when they were little.

    This way seems so much easier and as you stated, they have so many benefits. Great review Ros and look forward to many more!

    1. Thanks Sharon ,
      Gosh it all takes time though hey!Im pretty picky and it has to be right before I publish it so I did soooo many drafts! Did you think the links were ok ? I find my theme makes it really hard to put pics in properly , it look s fine in draft but when I publish it goes all skewed because the column is so much narrower in the real thing. Oh well , lesson learnt! Next time Ill choose a theme that goes across the page as normal! Back to lessons for a while now ! What are you up to ? Anything I can do for you in my vast experience LOL!

  2. Hi Ros,
    Thank you for your thorough review on the Smiley Daisy Hibiscus Essential Oil Diffuser. You sure are a subject matter expert on it that’s for sure. I personally use a humidifier myself but after reading your review, I think that an oil diffuser is a better alternative for my needs. Thanks again for your excellent review on this product.

    1. Well I guess it depends if you want more humidification than the benefits of the essential oils but why not give it a shot?!
      You definitely get some moist air from the diffuser so maybe a good combo for you Jerome! Let me know!
