Do you find that you have trouble concentrating sometimes? This happens to the best of us, but there are things that we can do in order to prevent it from happening too often. Of course getting adequate sleep is the place to start, but did you know that aromatherapy can be used to help you concentrate and have better focus? The right blend of oils in a diffuser can help promote concentration and alertness. This is something I do myself quite often as I am blogging.

One option for a diffuser is  the NOW Ultrasonic Faux Wood Essential Oil Diffuser. This is an attractive unit that can be used anywhere, and at any time. Let’s take a closer look at the NOW diffuser.


If you want to be able to fill up to 400 square feet of space with aromatic scents from your favorite essential oils, you can easily do it with this essential oil diffuser. Let’s take a look at some of the many features this diffuser has to offer.

  • Faux Wood Design – We love the way this essential oil diffuser looks. It has a beautiful, faux wood design that is going to look great in any room in your home. It is attractive enough, and small enough, to use in your office. It will easily fit onto a shelf or desk, so you can fill your office with stimulating scents and promote focus and concentration.
  • Automatic Shut-Off – This unit has a handy automatic shut-off feature so you don’t have to worry about monitoring the water level. It will diffuse scents for up to eight hours, and then shut off automatically. So, you can easily go to sleep while enjoying relaxing scents that will help you to wake up with a clear mind (preferably not in your office though!).
  • Quality Construction – This essential oil diffuser is made from high quality materials that are BPA-free.It uses high frequency, ultrasonic vibrations to create a mist that is super-fine.
  • Nightlight – This machine can also be used as a nightlight, even if you are not using any essential oils in it. All you have to do is turn the LED color-changing light on, and you can set it to one steady color or a changing pattern of colors. For this reason, and the fact several essential oils induce good sleep, many use these in bedrooms.
  • Quiet – This is not a noisy unit, which makes it ideal for anyone who wants to reap the benefits of essential oils while they are sleeping.

Pros and Cons

Now it is time to take a look at the pros and cons of this essential oil diffuser. Yes, it has some great features that you will love, but there have been some customer complaints that you should be aware of before making a purchase.


  • Easy to Use – It couldn’t be any easier to use this essential oil diffuser from NOW. All you have to do is add 500 ml (approximately two cups) of water, and up to five drops of your favorite essential oils. You can add more if you prefer a stronger scent. Turn the machine on, and the scent will be diffused into the air.
  • Easy to Clean – According to the manufacturer, this machine is easy to clean (see cons for a different opinion). The directions say to fill the tank with warm water and a little bit of vinegar, empty, wipe it down, and rinse it out.


  • Cleaning – Some users report that this unit is difficult to clean. They say that because the water tank is one piece, it cannot be opened or removed to clean it out. This could end up causing a problem should mold begin to develop inside the unit. This can be said of many ultrasonic diffusers though–often the water reservoir is not removable.


Now Foods is a big name in the health and wellness space, so one thing we like about this diffuser is that it has an established company standing behind it. While this is a pretty basic unit, with no timers or mist settings, probably it’s biggest advantage is the massive 500 ml water reservoir. Typical ultrasonics have water containers of 100-300 ml.  This means you can run it longer without refilling. The flip side is you need to be more careful about changing the water every couple of days so it doesn’t get slimy.  This product has been around for awhile an has a unique petal like shaped paired with a faux wood design. Not the prettiest diffuser, but a far cry from the most utilitarian as well. This diffuser is a solid choice for a large capacity ultrasonic.
