But what are these plants that can give us essential oils? Well, you don’t have to go deep into the Amazon jungle to get them because they can be found just within your backyard in Australia.

Leading the pack of such plants is eucalyptus with lavender, peppermint and tea trees following. These plants are usually within our reach but there are also others out there that can serve different roles cutting across different cultures.

So what are these striking benefits that are starting all these fuss about essential oils? We can’t be able to list them all as they will fill up our review.

However we can just give examples like; they inhibit viral infections, lower blood pressure, relax the mind and body, provide beautiful scent in our surroundings, improve focus and even stimulate functionality of our internal organs, just to mention a few.

But why all these talk about essential oils? To those who have tried it, the recipe to a perfect aromatherapy starts with essential oils and ends with diffusers.

Going by their name, diffusers diffuse essential oils for inhalation, drawing out 50%-70% of active molecules that can be huffed into our bodies.

With many options of diffusers out there, you might find yourself in a quandary on which one to choose that will suit your needs in terms of quality and quantity.

Many have bought some while relying on the luck of the draw and ended up finding faults and picking holes that they could have easily avoided.

To avoid wasting your precious time, and importantly your well-earned money, it’s earnest to take a peek at this article that will offer you the ‘no-brainer’ wisdom and give you all the insight about doTERRA diffusers.

Why doTerra Diffuser is different from other oil diffusers?

If you are looking to put a smile on your nose, for a change, with elegant aroma and fresh air, then think no further than doTERRA diffusers.

Going by its popularity and the design behind it, many users in Australia have given the brand the thumbs up rule for providing quality aroma while still remaining pocket-friendly.

If you know a lot about this space, achieving such an endorsement isn’t handed on a silver platter.

One conspicuous character that makes it stand out from the rest is its superior built quality.

Dissimilar to other diffusers in the market, doTERRA diffusers are made of plastic and materials of great quality giving it a plus and an accommodating spot in an upscale setting.

Another interesting aspect that gets it a notch above other diffusers is its simplicity and efficiency in operation.

doTERRA diffusers have only two buttons in their design; one for switching lights on and off while the other for turning on mist. 

The latter, has an increment option for 1, 2 or 4 hours. When started, doTERRA diffusers infuse the rooms at a fast rate.

doTERRA diffuser sets itself apart with the automatic switch that turns off the device once water is fully exhausted; thus securing the diffuser from running dry, even when the preset timer is still on the clock, and in the long run increasing its life and durability. This makes it a top and favorable pick from the rest in the market.

It’s also arguably safe to say that they are the quietest diffusers, with a well-sized reservoir, around.


There are two technologies the doTERRA brand makes use of when diffusing essential oils; the ultrasonic sound (ultrasonic diffusers) and the speed and air pressurization (nebulizers). 

There are a variety of doTERRA ultrasonic models out there with sleek and hands-on designs.

They include the Aroma Lite Diffuser, Lotus Diffuser, Lumo Diffuser and the Petal Diffuser.

Features of the doTerra Diffuser:

  • 1 hr, 2 hr and 4 hr diffuser settings or cycle
  • Soft LED light that can be turned off and on
  • Very silent when operated
  • Well-sized reservoir
  • Automatically shuts off with low water
  • Produces a calming glow
  • Fine mist spreads as far as 31-100 square metres
  • Simple design which is convenient to use

Things we like the most

If you are looking for a silent ninja, doTERRA diffuser is your guy.

Being a powerful essential oil diffuser, it hasn’t stopped it from permeating mist in silence and thus becoming a convenient device round-the-clock.

In addition, its compact nature makes it travel-friendly.

We also liked how it was eloquently designed to take very little space.

Also, considering that present timer can be set for 3 hours (i.e. 1, 2 and 4 hour cycle), there is a good chance that you will be required to fill the reservoir once per day and still gain six diffusion of fresh aroma.

The doTERRA Petal Diffuser is very affordable and regardless of this, it never lacks in quality.

All doTERRA Petal Diffuser models have well-sized reservoir and can be filled at your own convenience.

To top it all off, they automatically switch off when water has been depleted, increasing the longevity of the device.      

Things we hate the most

Regardless of the awesomeness doTERRA diffusers has to offer, it has its own downside that we hated.

For instance, unlike other essential oil diffusers that have small water pitcher used in filling the appliance, the doTERRA diffuser lacks this; reducing the convenience when filling water reservoirs.

Also, compared to Hibiscus diffuser, the doTERRA Petal diffuser produces less amount of vapor.

Putting this into perspective, the Hibiscus diffuser produces 50-58 ml per hour while the Petal diffuser produces 37.5 per hour and thus showing us how average it really is in performance.

As much as the Petal diffuser is indeed reasonably priced, its counterpart doTERRA models are quite expensive when compared to other essential oil diffusers out there.

But, given the options available, such is not entirely a sticking point.

How to Use a doTERRA Petal Diffuser

When it comes to using the doTERRA Petal diffuser, it’s never rocket-science.

In fact, it’s as simple removing the lid, filling water in the reservoir as far as the red fill line, adding drops of essential oils, closing the lid, set the timer and you good to go.

Easy peasy!

You however need to take care of the diffuser and clean it up regularly. Also, watch out for the auto-shut off; don’t misuse this feature.

Even though it comes through and prevents the appliance form running dry, it can take the toll on the diffuser.

So provide care and maintenance to the diffuser and ultimately its lifespan will extend.   


By and large, doTERRA Diffusers have hit the mark in customer satisfaction going by the endorsements from people in Australia who have tried and tested it.

If you are looking to achieve the therapeutic benefits of essential oils and the sweet aroma that come with it; all at your convenience and affordability, then doTERRA diffuser is for you.
