Deep Breaths And Sweet Smells ~ $180 Giveaway

I have a very odd fear.  It’s a fear that my house smells like dog.  Gross.  The problem?  My house does smell like dog.  My “puppy” is a 200 pound Great Dane named Watson.  He bounds through the house with no cares that he’s leaving a trail of muddy paw prints, slobber and puppy smell every where he goes.  He’s full of joy, energy and that unmistakable puppy smell.  This little love  is pretty sure he’s a lap dog and his favourite place is cuddling with his people on the couch.  As much as I adore him, I don’t love his doggy smell.  We’ve tried doggy baths, vacuuming, scented candles and open windows, but I just know that doggy odour lingers.  So when I was asked if I wanted to review an aroma diffuser, I jumped at it!

Meet Julia by EcoBrandsNow.

Julia is an ultrasonic aroma diffuser that emits a generous mist while at the same time optimally distributing essential oils into a room using her unique directional and oscillating swing mode. In other words, Julia makes your house smell less like puppy, more like a spa.  Julia is one of the longest running diffusers available, operating 53 hours between fillings when using the interval mode.

  • Julia uses ultrasonic technology, blending water and pure essential oil, emitting your favorite fragrance
  • Operates in continuous mode, 18 hours on low and 12 hours on high. Or on interval mode (10 minutes on/ 20 minutes off), increasing running time to 53 hours on low and 36 hours on high.
  • Choose from 4 vibrant colors, giving you the option that will complement your surrounding decor and reflect your style
  • Automatically shuts off when water empties, giving you peace of mind

I set my new friend Julia up on the kitchen counter.  There wasn’t much in the way of directions, but it was fairly straight forward. A couple of clicks, add your water and your essential oil of choice.  There are three essential oils to choose from:

These oils are 100% Pure Essential Oils blended in the United States. Made from high-quality plant essences. They are pure essential oils, are hand-bottled, and contain no synthetic substances, pesticides, or parabens.   I was relieved to know they were safe for use in any aroma diffuser or applicable humidifiers/air cleaners.

I choose to try Refresh.  A pure essential oil said to energize your mind and body with a dynamic blend of citrus and herbal scents—grapefruit, rosemary, eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemongrass.

Here are my thoughts:

I liked the contemporary look of Julia, and that this small diffuser fit wonderfully into my decor.

I appreciated that when set to low Julia was able to scent my room for 53 hours without having to be refilled.

Bonus:  Julia shuts off when she runs out of water.

The smell was a perfect choice for our home. It reminded me of one of my favourite spas and helped with the eau du dog without being overpowering.

  80. Jennifer P. says:

    We have an open-concept layout on the main floor of our home and I would put this in what I guess I would call the “nook” at the top of the stairs. It branches off of our kitchen, dining area, powder room and living room, so it would be a nice central location for it. Also, the cat’s litter box is at the bottom of the stairs near the basement door, so this would take care of any odours that may waft up from it.

  81. Alicia Boisvert-Rutter says:

    If I won Julia it would definitely be used and placed in my bedroom. I have bad insomnia and use essential oil blends as a natural sleep remedy and during the day and we’ll all day lol but definitely my bedroom.
