This is the secret to having a relaxing (and fresh) home environment

During winter, many homes lose moisture due to the heating that protects us from cold. Sometimes this causes a dry environment that is unfavorable to respiratory conditions or colds.

One device that helps us rest better is the humidifier, which improves the humidity level of the room and, therefore, softens the mucous membranes and helps open the airways. This device is usually present in homes where babies or the elderly live.

But in this case, we wanted to focus our attention on a specific humidifier. The one to which they can be added essences like eucalyptus, which helps you breathe better, or lavender, which relaxes and promotes sleep.

What is a humidifier with scents and how does it work?

A humidifier with essences is that device that fulfills its own function, that is, it increases the humidity of the environment, but to which different oils can be incorporated that provide a pleasant smell. They are used in aromatherapy or chromotherapy treatments, as some incorporate lights LED of different colors to create warm and relaxing environments.

The main difference with a traditional device is that it does not accept essences, since the oil could clog the motor or damage the plastic parts of the device.

Regarding the evaporation system, the chosen models are cold steam humidifiers through ultrasound. Unlike hot steam models, ultrasound vibrates the water until it evaporates without the need to bring it to a boil. It is less noisy, it does not condense, it does not pose a danger if we bring the hand to the steam and it consumes less watts.

Once the tank is full, just add a few drops of essences water soluble. Some models include the essences, but in most of them you have to buy them separately.

Favorite: BANLVS

To consider

Now that we know its benefits and how they work, we will describe the main aspects to take into account to make a successful purchase.

  • The capacity. The milliliters of the tank determine the autonomy of the device. The models in this comparison have a capacity of between 300 and 500 milliliters and provide continuous use for between 6 and 20 hours depending on the power of the steam outlet flow, normally adjustable in two positions.
  • The timer. The security system of these devices means that, once the tank runs out of water, it turns off automatically. However, one of the features most appreciated by users is that it includes a programmable timer with which to choose the time of use. All the models in this comparison include this function.
  • The remote control. Simple devices are switched on, off and programmed by pressing the buttons on the front of the device. However, the more sophisticated ones incorporate a remote control with which to operate it without having to approach. There is even a model that works through smart speakers or mobile apps. This option is the most recommended when the essence humidifier is placed, for example, in a baby’s room and we want to avoid entering it in case it wakes up.
  • LED light. Some scent humidifiers feature a color-changing LED light that creates a cozy and relaxing environment. It serves as chromotherapy and can be left fixed in a certain color, disconnected or changed randomly.
  • Cleaning. Although there are models with designs that facilitate cleaning from time to time, it is common that, after a period of use, limescale remains. Experts recommend using distilled water so that the appliance does not end up clogging.


Essence humidifiers are not excessively expensive devices. There are very competitive models with prices around 20 euros. The most sophisticated, such as, for example, those that connect to smart speakers and are activated through voice, reach 50 euros. They are devices that, due to their size and design, are a very good gift option. Nobody will get in the way or spoil the aesthetics of your home.
