I received complimentary products from Aroma Delights to facilitate my review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
When I was in college I always had a candle lit in my apartment. Then I got married and with marriage came pets and kids and that was the end of my candle habit. I wasn’t interested in risking burning the house down. But the soft, warm glow is something I miss, especially in the colder months. There’s something comforting about it, don’t you think? And of course I loved the scent, too. So I was really interested when Kelly from Aroma Delights contacted me about reviewing her products. And I’m going to admit upfront that I was skeptical but as soon as I opened the box I was sold!
I’m apparently a little slow to dive into the world of warmers because I didn’t realize how different they are versus any of the scented stuff you buy at the mass retailers. I chose this Pedestal Heart Oil Warmer to review and I love this thing. Seriously, when I’m home, it’s on. There are a several features that make it so great.
This warmer is lightweight yet sturdy. I mentioned that I have kids and pets and though I don’t keep my warmer in a place where I think it will be easily knocked over, you never know! So I really like that it has a pedestal base that is wide with 5 legs and won’t easily tip. I’ve never even come close to tipping mine over. I also love that even though it looks like heavy ceramic (and it is ceramic), it’s very lightweight. It just makes it easier to move around and doesn’t feel big and bulky.
It’s beautiful! I love the way it looks with the crackly outside and the cutout hearts. If you put your warmer close to a wall it will project colored hearts onto the wall. So cool! You can choose from several colors of cylinders to put inside the warmer. This changes the color of the light. In the image above I have the yellow one in and in the image below I have the blue swirly one in.
There’s no open flame so it’s much safer than a candle. And it doubles as a nightlight! It does get warm depending on the intensity of the light, which is something else I really like: this model of warmer comes with a dimmer switch so you can turn it up and down. However, there is no fire so I’m not at all worried about the cat jumping up and swishing her tail through a flame. I feel completely safe having this on in the house with the kids and pets and I love that I can leave a little light on in the room without turning the big overhead light on. It’s a perfect nightlight in the evening.
The Aroma Delights warmers are so easy to use. All you do with this one is plug it in, pour in about a half teaspoon of oil into the dish on top, and turn it on. What I love about the Aroma Delights site is that Kelly offers these great videos to show you exactly how to use her products. I like her suggestion to turn it on high for about 15 minutes to let the smell spread throughout the house and then turn it down about halfway. If you find the smell to be too intense, which I never did but some people may be more sensitive, you can dilute it with water.
The scented oils smell amazing! There are 28 different scents to choose from and above are the 4 that I picked. I have tried them all and really like them all. It’s hard to pick a favorite because I like each of them depending on what kind of mood I’m in! Lilies in Bloom is really fragrant and mellow, but I love the Cinnamon Rush to give me a little energy. It smells like those red hot cinnamon candies. Yum!
In addition to the beautiful warmers, Aroma Delights carries these Scented Body Sprays. Now I’m not really into perfume too much. I like stuff that smells nice but I often think it’s just overpowering and smells fake. So I was a little leery of these but wanted to give them a shot. I’m so glad I did! Summer Rain is my favorite, but they all smell really nice. What I like about these is the same thing I really like about the oils for the warmer: They’re subtle enough to not overpower the senses, yet strong enough that you can still smell them. And they smell great!
These sprays are kind of like a dry oil, not sticky and not greasy either. I put a little spray on the inside of my wrists and then rub them together and rub them on my neck and I’m done. They come in 7 different scents and they’re alcohol free so they’re not drying and don’t have that harsh smell. They’d make a great stocking stuffer!
