How does a Nebulizing Diffuser Work?
Nebulizing diffusers use an air pump that blows air over a glass suction tube, which is submerged in the essential oils reservoir. This air flow atomizes the essential oils and disperses the fine particles into the air through the top opening funnel.
Nebulizers are extremely efficient. Since they don’t use any water like their ultrasonic counterparts, you will be able to achieve very strong essential oil smells from it. In a “regular” ultrasonic diffuser, you use water in the unit to help disperse the essential oils. Nebulizers don’t use any water. It’s a perfect way to disperse the small molecules of essential oils through the air to enter the body via our sense of smell.
The best aromatherapy results will be achieved if a good quality oil is used (that does not contain a carrier oil as this will leave a residue of grease in the glass). An easy way to check the quality of your intended oil is to do a simple evaporation test. Put one drop of the oil on a sheet of printer paper and wait a couple of hours for it to evaporate. If the paper dries quickly, you have selected a pure essential oil; if it leaves a grease spot the oil has a carrier and cleaning of the glass will be more prudent (and difficult).
How to Use Your Nebulizing Diffuser
Take the power supply from the package and plug into power connection of the diffuser. Fill the reservoir with at least 10 drops of pure essential oil of your choice. I personally found that it works great to start with about 30 drops of oil. If desired, a maximum of 30 ml of essential oil can be added to the glass, just ensure the oil level remains at least 5 mm below the top of the glass nozzles in the center of the glass reservoir.
Insert the supplied glass nozzle on top of the glass reservoir with a slight turning motion. Place the diffuser unit on a flat surface and swipe the area on the body of the diffuser that indicates ‘aroma’ (icon); now a blue led will be seen below the glass reservoir and a small humming noise from the air pump should be heard. The unit will start to produce a mist of aroma. By swiping the ‘light’ icon, the internal light will switch on at full or half brightness or off. By default, light will be off.
Follow these steps to start using your brand-new nebulizer:
- Plug the DC power adapter to the inlet at the bottom of the diffuser.
- Connect the USB power cord to the socket, and plug that supply into a wall socket.
- Insert the glass topper into the wooden base with a downward rotation move.
- Add appropriate drops of essential oil.
- Cover the glass base with the spray nozzle topper and adjust its position to ensure it’s sealed tightly.
- Connect to the power supply
- Activate the desired working mode by touching the side of the diffuser base.
Don’t leave unused oil in the glass nebulizer over a few days without using it since the oils will thicken up and might clog the diffuser.
Does It Have an Auto Shut-Off Mechanism?
Yes, the diffuser is programmed to turn itself off after 4 hours of use maximum. This is handy so you don’t have to worry about remembering to shut off your diffuser after longer periods of use.
NOTE: The diffuser pump creating the aromatherapy mist will shut off automatically, and so does the blue, red or green led when the time is expired; however if you turned on the light during start-up, the light will remain on.
How Big of an Area Can It Cover?
This vase-style nebulizer is rated to cover an area of 325 sq ft. That’s approximately 30 sq meters. The diffuser features different flow settings to accommodate both aromatherapy practitioners (for 2 hour settings) and usage as a ‘refreshing’ device using essential oil in the 4 hr low setting targeting medical facilities and waiting areas, yoga studios and hallways.
Can I turn Off the Lights On It?
The Bushberry Nebulizing Aromatherapy Diffuser features separate buttons for aroma mist and light modes – all operated by touch-screen mode.
- Touch light button once, the light is turn on, brightest light mode.
- Touch light button a 2nd time, the lights are half bright.
- Touch the button for a 3rd time to switch off the light completely.
How do I Operate the Different Mist Modes?
To turn the diffuser on or off, use your finger to swipe over the AROMA icon on the beech wood base of the unit. The air flow can be regulated by swiping the ‘aroma’ icon in 3 different ways:
- Swipe over the Aroma button once, and you’ll be in constant speed mist mode (“normal”), indicated by the blue light. The default run time on this setting is 2 hours, with normal mist diffusing intermittently.
- Swipe over the Aroma button for the second time, and you’ll be in strong mist mode, indicated by the red light. The default run time on this setting is 2 hours, with strong mist working intermittent.
- Swipe over the Aroma button for a 3rd time, and you’ll be in night mist mode (“low”), indicated by the green light. The default on-time is 4 hours, with gentle mist working intermittently.
NOTE: In all of these modes, the pump will be on for 2 minutes, then pause for 3 minutes.
If some days, you get a lower mist amount than others, do not be alarmed. Relative humidity, room temperature, and overall air flow in the home are all factors that affect the mist amount emitted by your nebulizing essential oil diffuser. However, if the problem persists or occurs on a regular basis, check the following tips for maintenance and cleaning of your unit.
How to Clean Your Nebulizing Diffuser
To remove the glass bottle from the wooden base, take off the lid in a vertical upward rotation. Pour out the remaining essential oil from the glass bottle and add 3-5 mL medical alcohol inside the glass; swirl it thoroughly and empty it.
Put the glass back on the diffuser and let it run for 15 minutes to allow the remaining alcohol to evaporate; also check if the suction tube is free from residue. Let air-dry well before using again.
Cleaning the Glass Topper: First, remove the glass reservoir from the diffuser body. If you’ve been using a pure, light oil, high-quality oil (that leaves no residue), cleaning with a simple baking soda mixture will work fine. Prepare the following:
- Mix 1 glass full of boiled (warm) water or filtered warm water with one table spoon of baking soda (bicarbonate). The water needs to be boiled first in order to remove chlorides and to reduce the hardness.
- If the glass is cleaned the same way you would clean an expensive wine glass, the result will be fine as long as no brush or cloth is used inside the glass.
- You’re ready for another type of oil to be diffused!
When an oil was used that leaves a greasy residue, a grease solvent is required to clean the remaining thick residue off the glass that can’t be removed with the earlier described method-
- Use 95% pure alcohol (that a pharmacy sells), or pure or diluted apple vinegar to remove most grease.
- After the swirl with vinegar, flush the diffuser glass with the same mixture of water with baking soda as described above; alternatively, a biodegradable grease remover or dish washing liquid can be used to rinse the glass. I tried ‘Green Action’ Multi-purpose cleaner from Aldi with good results after using an essential oil with carrier-oil.
CAUTION: Do not wash the wood base with water. Instead, use a wet towel to wipe it clean.
Issue: Cannot turn diffuser on or turn off:
- Is the power cord connected properly? Disconnect, check cables and reconnect carefully.
- Is the USB cord or power plug faulty? Check to ensure the USB cord or power plug in good condition.
- Can the light or mist functions work separately? Check if the light or mist modes can work
separately. If one of them works but the other is broken, please contact your local dealer for maintenance or replacement.
Issue: No mist or abnormal mist volume:
- The LED light is on, and the sound of a motor can be heard, but there is no misting? Check that the glass bottle is in good connection with the wood base. Check that the oil level is above the minimum but below maximum (I have good success starting this diffuser with about 30 drops of essential oil). If you still get no misting, use medical alcohol to clean the nozzle. For abnormal operation after all these tips, please contact your local dealer for maintenance or replacement.
Issue: Oil leak
- Does the oil volume you put in overflow the built-in nozzle? Check that the oil level is at least 5 mm BELOW the top of the glass nozzle. Pour out the remaining essential oil, clean the nozzle, let it dry completely and try using the unit again.

For best longevity of the diffuser, use 100% pure natural essential oil only. This product is not a piece of medical equipment, do not directly inhale the aroma mist from the spout.
To clean your diffuser, use medical alcohol to clean the glassware at least one time every week to avoid nozzle clogging.

If you will not use your diffuser for an extended period of time, unplug the power adapter, dispose of the essential oil and wipe the unit clean before storage.
Each type of essential oil diffuser works differently; and some are better for certain applications than others. This nebulizing essential oil diffuser is fantastic if you like strong aromatherapy benefits. It is not such a good choice if you need a diffuser for a child’s room, or for a very small space like a car or bathroom.
One key benefit of a nebulizing diffuser vs. an ultrasonic diffuser is that you don’t have to hunt for water to mix in with the essential oil anytime you wish to diffuse. You also don’t have to worry about diffuser dilution rates and hitting that perfect balance ratio between water and essential oils.
Essential oil diffusers have come a long ways since they were first starting to become popular. This unit is no difference: it is sleek, beautiful, and functions well. I enjoy using it around our home and give it my full recommendation.
(5 / 5) due to impeccable style, slick touch operation, fair price point and good product functioning.
