ZAQ Mirage Essential Oil Diffuser Review
Are you searching for a diffuser with a cool, contemporary design that will easily fill the rooms of your home or workplace with the goodness of all your favorite essential oils, turning your space into an aromatherapy oasis? If it’s tranquillity, freshness and relaxation that you are looking for, then look no further than the ZAQ Mirage diffuser. This premium, high-quality diffuser is designed to give you everything that you’ll ever need from your essential oils, and more.
The ZAQ Mirage is one of the larger diffusers designed by the brand, designed with perfect tranquillity in mind. It has a large surface area, and is available in simple white. It’s curved, contemporary design makes it look almost like a modern table ornament, and many users report being perfectly happy to display it almost anywhere in their homes. The base of the diffuser can be set to glow, making it perfect for bedrooms or as a substitute for a lamp. The matte finish makes it rather attractive to look at, and although it’s made from sturdy plastic, you can rest assured that it is BPA free, meaning that there’s no need to worry about any toxins during diffusion.
Size and Capacity
The ZAQ Mirage is described by the brand as ‘oversized luxury’, coming in at 8” x 4”. This makes it the perfect choice if you’re not into small, compact diffusers and want something that you can fill a larger space with or even put on display. Naturally, the larger physical size of the diffuser means that it is capable of creating more mist than some of the smaller diffuser models on the market. This diffuser will hold up to 150ml of water mixed with around 3-5 drops of essential oil, meaning that you have longer intervals between refills and a lengthier operating time than some more compact alternatives.
Energy efficiency is something which is fast becoming more important than ever to the homeowners of today. Not only does being more energy efficient result in smaller energy bills each month, it’s also kinder to the environment, helping homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint and do their bit for looking after our planet. Naturally, essential oils and diffusers brands want to be as kind as possible to the planet – after all, it’s the exact source of where all essential oils are derived. If you are energy conscious, there is no need to worry with the ZAQ Mirage – it’s one of the eco-friendliest diffuser products out there. Along with a low, dual voltage and the fact that it only uses the minimum amount of energy needed to operate effectively, the ZAQ Mirage also comes with an automatic shut-off feature which prevents it from using any extra, unnecessary energy once the room is saturated in an aromatherapy mist.
One of the most important factors to consider when buying a new diffuser is how effective the oil will be once it is diffused. This is because certain, older (and often cheaper) models of diffuser will use heat to diffuse the oil, burning it and breaking it down along the way, resulting in it being less than 100% effective. When you buy a diffuser, you want to make sure that the oil is just as effective when it comes out as it was when it went in! Thankfully, the ZAQ Mirage makes sure of that. With top-of-the-range ultrasonic vibrations known as Litemist technology, the ZAQ Mirage will never use any kind of heat or burning to diffuse your oil, ensuring that the molecules are dispersed being 100% effective. Not only that, but the technology is whisper quiet, too – you’ll forget that it’s even there!
Along with a unique contemporary design, energy-efficiency, safety features and a huge capacity, the ZAQ Mirage has another interesting and awesome feature – LED color changing lights. Unlike many other diffusers which offer this feature, the ZAQ Mirage doesn’t just display the same lights over and over – it has a range of different light selections to choose from. These lights make it perfect for setting the mood in a room, and are gentle enough to be used as a night light, even in a child’s room or nursery provided that you use a gentle essential oil such as lavender oil. Would you prefer the diffuser to operate in complete darkness? It’s not a problem – you can easily switch the lights settings to on or off without disruption of the diffusing process.
The ZAQ Mirage diffuser is one that many professional aromatherapy practitioners recommend, especially if you are looking to get a diffuser which will help with a certain health issue or issues. The ZAQ Mirage is one of the best diffusers on the market if you are looking to ensure that the mist spreads efficiently, and it can even be effectively used in a breeze so there is no need to worry if you have a window opened or the air conditioning system turned on. Once you begin using the ZAQ Mirage, it won’t take long for you to start noticing the different health benefits of your chosen essential oils. This could be that you are breathing more clearly, have softer skin, or even feel happier and more uplifted.
Use Around the Home
If you aren’t interested in using essential oils for health purposes, you’ve probably heard that they can be put to great use around the home. For years, many homeowners have used essential oils in their day to day routines for both cleaning and air purification purposes. When used with the right essential oils, the ZAQ Mirage can be an excellent tool for purifying the air in your home. Covering an area of around 300-400 square feet, this diffuser is perfect for any room in the home and can easily get rid of nasty odors such as pet odors or cigarette smoke. Essential oils are also chemical free, making them perfectly safe to diffuse around the home to keep the air fresh and clean even if you have allergies, sensitivities, or small children.
Long Lasting Results
The ZAQ Mirage will usually diffuse for around six hours at a time before it will need re-filling and automatically shut off. This gives it the perfect amount of time to saturate the air with the essential oil molecules, creating an aromatherapy mist that has all the properties of the essential oil that you are using whether it be revitalising, uplifting, motivating, calming or relaxing.
Usage and Maintenance
When you first receive your ZAQ Mirage diffuser, you may need to connect a couple of parts together before you can set it up and get started. In order to do this, you will receive full instructions included with the package that will take you through the whole set-up process so that you can start using your new diffuser as quickly as possible. Once you’re all set, all you’ll need to do is plug the diffuser in and add 150ml of cool water with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Maintenance is also quite simple – in order to avoid oil-build up it is recommended that you clean the diffuser every three to four days, but it’s definitely not a big task. In fact, all that you need to do is wipe away any oil residue with a cotton swab and dish detergent, or use rubbing alcohol if you have left it a little longer and there is a lot of build-up. Once clean, the ZAQ Mirage can be left to air-dry before using again with a fresh essential oil.
Summing it Up
If you are looking for the perfect diffuser for an aromatherapy enthusiast, this is it. The ZAQ Mirage has scored many points from the professionals, being large enough to fill big spaces with an effective, safe and refreshing aromatherapy mist. The energy efficiency of this unit is also a huge bonus, and you’ll be able to use it whilst barely seeing any difference on your energy bill. Not only that, but the automatic switch-off feature makes this diffuser extremely safe and an ideal choice for those with busy lives or parents. The no-heat, whisper quiet Litemist technology means that you’ll get 100% of the essential oil benefits whilst diffused. Not to mention, you can easily leave the ZAQ Mirage in a bedroom or other quiet room and you’ll barely even notice that it is there.
