What is the Best Flame Diffuser? In this guide and review we’ll be exploring some of our top choices for aroma diffusers with flame light, how flame diffusers work, and which one you should get!

Essential oils have become extremely popular among young and older people alike. They are used to help stress reduction, fungal infections, aid in sleep, and even prevent diseases (read more – source). And, how do you get these wonderful elements into your home? Well, that’s what we’ll be talking about!

We already have a review on our top choices for regular humidifying and aroma diffusers, however today we’ll be looking at something a little different. While flame diffusers have a very similar concept to a regular essential oil diffuser, they use a different type of dispersion method.

In short (we’ll explain later), they are safer, simpler, and work better in your home! However, there are a lot of options to choose from (different designs, types, brands, etc.), and we’ll break it down for you.

So, with that being said, let’s get into it…

What is a Flame Diffuser (Aroma Diffuser with Flame Light)?


A flame diffuser or aroma diffuser with flame light is a special type of mist humidifier that disperses aromatherapy via ultrasonic vibrations (source). While a traditional essential oil diffuser will use a heat source to create mist, these newer technology diffusers use ultrasonic vibrations to atomize water and oil.

This process not only removes the problems that arise with a live heating element, but also create a more “perfect” vapor that preserves the integrity of the original essential oils properties.

How Does a Mist Humidifier Aromatherapy Diffuser Work?

Ultrasonic humidifiers use vibrations to send water droplets into the air. These water droplets can suspend in the air and carry essential oils.

Evaporative humidifiers use a heating element to evaporate water and send the vapor into the air. The downside is that this will leave behind any extra “particles” in the water, such as minerals.

However, ultrasonic humidifiers will not leave behind such particles. And the water droplets created will carry along their particles (read more).


Benefits to a Ultrasonic Humidifier

  • They are very good at humidifying air (usually they are so good that they will have an auto-shutoff to avoid adding too much moisture)
  • Ultrasonic humidifiers are very quiet because their is no fan, however there still can be an audible hum
  • They can be extremely small and compact due to the simplicity of the humidifying mechanism
  • Little electricity use
  • No replacement of wicks or filters

Benefits of Essential Oils

  • Boost mood
  • Decrease stress
  • Improve sleep
  • Improve job performance due to increased attentiveness
  • Kill bacteria, funguses and viruses
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce nausea
  • Relieve headaches (source)

There are several types of essential oils to choose from, however all will provide some sort of positive benefit.

What Are the Best Flame Diffusers?

Minlebao Flame Diffuser with Aromatherapy


Starting off with the Minlebao Flame Diffuser with Aromatherapy. This ultrasonic diffuser is able to make perfect vapor without the use of a heating element. It has a realistic flame effect generated with smart LED lights, and the mist coming out of the diffuser.

There is a variety of settings that you can choose from including “gentle flame” or “violent flame”. Each setting allows you to change the “mood”. The vaporizing element is extremely simple making it not only reliable, but quiet as well (noise below 36dB).

In addition, Minlebao includes a waterless auto-off safety feature. This means that as soon as it runs out of water it automatically shuts off to avoid any unnecessary use or harm.

Burflo Flame Essential Oil Diffuser (Ultrasonic)


Next up is the Burflo Flame Essential Oil Diffuser. This diffuser has a massive 240 mL water tank allowing for a continuous diffusion for up to 15 hours. Just add 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oil and let it go!

The BURFLO uses a unique ultrasonic element combined with intelligent LED lights to produce a realistic flame effect. You can choose between flame effects via the included remote or the buttons on the device itself. In addition, you can use it without having any flame effect on (if you’re trying to sleep, etc.).

It is extremely quiet with an operating volume of less than 30 dB – making it a great choice for a baby room. There is a timer feature, and auto waterless shutoff. You can choose between 180 minutes or 360 minutes for the timer. And, if you run out of water the diffuser will automatically shut off.

Finally, BURFLO claims that all of the materials are 100% baby harmless certified. They use the same materials that baby bottles are made from. Additionally, they provide a 12-month worry-free warranty!

FUSHOU Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser (Flame Spray Humidifier)


Finally, we have the FUSHOU Flame Spray Humidifier. This humidifier makes the list because of it’s incredibly quiet operating volume of less than 24 dB.

It features a lot of the same things present on the other two diffusers. These include a high-quality PP material build, LED lights to create a realistic flame effect, multiple settings for the LED’s, and a ultrasonic vapor diffuser.

FUSHOU also uses an auto-shutoff safety feature that shuts off the devices when you’re out of water. The ultrasonic mechanism helps to disperse essential oils in a more diffuse way, moisturize your skin, and help to provide the other benefits of aromatherapy.

Final Thoughts

While it might seem clear based on our review, our first choice would be the Burflo Flame Essential Oil Diffuser. Not only does it provide the most features, but the best build, especially when used for a baby or child’s room.

BURFLO uses a wood-like veneer along with a solid build quality to provide a aesthetic product. It should fit into pretty much any modern or rustic space and can be used to virtually any room in your home.

Whether you’re putting it in the bathroom, kitchen or bedroom, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed with your choice!
