Heritage Whisper Diffuser with Variable Output and Timer built in
Made in the USA - 1 year manufacturing defect warranty
If the motor is damaged due to misuse, the manufacturer will typically be able to repair/replace the motor for about $30.
This diffuser is a break through in diffuser technology. It features a compact motor that is virtually silent and uses your own 15 ml essential oil bottle as a nebulizer to diffuse 100% essential oil (nothing is added). This feature eliminates the fragile nature of other nebulizing diffusers without sacrificing quality and effectiveness. The Ultra Quiet Diffuser has variable controls for time on/off and volume of output. The silent motor can be placed several feet from the nebulizing bottle, so that you can, for example, place the motor out of reach or sight of little ones and yet have the nebulizing bottle right by their bedside. Having tried a number of diffusers over the years, in our opinion, there is nothing that tops this one.
The aromatherapy pump is virtually silent, and the the advanced interval timers allow complete control of how long the unit is "on" or "off" as well as volume of output. The higher the output, the louder the sound of air passing through the orifice on the atomizer will be. On low, it's very quiet. It is extremely effective at atomizing essential oils into a micro-fine vapor that is dispersed into the air for better absorption into the lungs. The quick change atomizer system makes it easy to switch oils to be diffused, and there are no delicate glass parts to worry about breaking or getting clogged. It is rated to cover a 1500-1800 square foot room. The Whisper is rated at 5-6 psi.
The atomizer breaks the oil down to 1-3 microns on low or high settings. The micro mist will stay suspended in the air for 2-3 hours at a level of 4-6 feet in the air and will ultimately evaporate rather than settling on surfaces.
Running the diffuser at high output pressures and short timing intervals maximize particle breakdown and therapeutic benefit.
The Whisper has a timer that controls the how long the diffuser runs (maximum 20 minutes) and a separate timer that controls the how long the diffuser is off (up to 20 minutes off). It will run 24/7 until you turn it off.
As a point of reference, if you turn the output to maximum and run it for an hour, it will use about 3 mls of an essential oil like Orange or Lemon, which are light oils that are consumed more quickly than others. We typically run ours on medium low for 8 hours nightly with the cycle on for 5 minutes and off for 20 or so minutes, and a 15 ml bottle of Respiratory Relief will last about a week. We have run a bottle of Respiratory Relief on full output settings, always on and no time off, and 8 hours later we had diffused 1/2 of the bottle.
- Higher pressure means more abundance of micro-fine oil droplets less than 3 microns (the size required to penetrate deep into the olfactory system and enter directly into the blood stream.
- Smaller particles stay suspended in the air for longer periods so you get more health benefits from less oil.
- Short run time (on time) allows complete control of how much oil is diffused per hour.
- Rest time (off time) gives you the option to conserve oil like never before.

Other than simply inhaling the oils, the easiest and simplest way of putting essential oils into the air for inhalation is to use an aromatic diffuser. A cold air diffuser uses room-temperature air to blow the oil up through a nebulizer. This breaks the oils up into a micro-fine mist that is then dispersed into the air. The oils, with their oxygenating molecules, will then remain suspended for several hours to freshen and improve the quality of the air. The anti-viral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties of the oils kill bacteria and help reduce fungus and mold. Essential oils, when diffused, have been found to reduce the amount of airborne chemicals and metallics. Many essential oils, such as Lemongrass, Lemon, our blends of Purify, Citrus Blessing, and Plague Defense are highly antibacterial and are extremely effective for eliminating and destroying airborne germs and bacteria.
When using on a daily basis, we suggest a very low level of diffusion so that the aroma of the essential oil is faintly noticeable, which in a bedroom would only diffuse a few drops daily.
There are times when we want to diffuse to prevent an illness. Intermittent diffusion is suggested where the diffuser cycles on for a time, such as 30 minutes on and 30 minutes off. In our family, we diffuse 5 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Intermittent diffusion is effective and safe for children.
Daily diffusion over many weeks or months may not be in the best interest of most children, as we feel it's important for their immune systems to be challenged so that it learns to fight.
Unlike candles or aroma lamps, cold-air diffusers disperse oils without heating or burning, which can render the oil therapeutically less beneficial and possibly create toxic compounds. Burned oils may become carcinogenic. Research (from
Essential Oil Desk Reference by Essential Science Publishing, Third Edition) shows that cold air diffusing certain oils may:
• Reduce and/or eliminate bacteria, fungus, mold and unpleasant odors
• Improve concentration, alertness, and mental clarity
• Relax the mind and body, relieve tension and clear the mind
• Stimulate neurotransmitters
• Stimulate secretion of endorphins
• Stimulate growth hormone production and receptivity
• Digest petrochemicals on the receptor sites
• Improve the secretion of IgA antibodies that fight candida
• Improve digestive function
• Improve hormonal balance
• Relieve headaches
• Dispel odors
Cinnamon bark, Oregano, and the oils found in our Plague Defense blend were all tested by Weber State University and shown to kill 100% of the airborne bacteria present when diffused into the atmosphere.
Heritage Diffuser atomizers have been carefully engineered for easy cleaning and operating simplicity. We believe that they are perhaps the most "easy to clean" system on the market. We try to run Lemon essential oil through the diffuser weekly to keep it clean. Lemon acts like a solvent to remove sticky build up.
Thick essential oils such as Sandalwood, Myrrh, Patchouli, Vetiver and so on can clog your atomizer. If you do need to use a thicker oil, try diluting it with a thinner oil like Lemon. NEVER diffuse an oil with a carrier oil in it.
: Very important Diffuse only quality oils, some fragrance oils have been diluted with a carrier oil. Our diffusers are designed for 100% essential oils. Carrier oils are too thick and will clog the units. Some pure essential oils are thick and resinous by nature, so running a thin oil like lemon, or mixing a thinner oil with the thicker oils will keep these units from getting clogged.
If your diffuser does get clogged or begins to run sluggishly, then a quick clean will fix the problem.
How to clean:
If the unit is not completely clogged you can put a little alcohol in an empty essential oil bottle and diffuse for a couple of minutes in a closed room (I'd avoid breathing the vapor). If the unit is too clogged to push the air through, then a deep clean will be required.
1. Remove the atomizer attachment from its base. The oil clogs develop in the attachment piece.
2. Once the attachment has been removed, remove the essential oil bottle, but do not remove the straw-like device.
3. Immerse the atomizer attachment in alcohol. A mason jar works great, you can use rubbing alcohol, vodka or ever-clear. Let the atomizer attachment remain completely immersed in alcohol for some time depending on the thickness of the oil buildup or resin. Ten minutes may be enough, but overnight may be better. This should clean the oil resin buildup and will not harm the diffuser.
4. Rinse in warm water and let dry.
5. Once dry, reconnect it to the essential oil bottle and diffuse. Be sure it's completely dry. You don't want water in your essential oils.
1. We run our diffuser at night when we are sick, so the Whisper worked best for us. It's quiet and the tubing is helpful to optimally position it to be most effective. - Robin
2. I can not say enough how much I love my Whisper. I love how the bottle of oil being diffused has a stand that's separate from the main diffuser. There's a nice length of tubing between so I can set it on a night stand but have the diffuser motor part further away. I love that feature. Also, I can use different size bottles to diffuse. Was running a 30 ml the other night. - Rhoda
3. I have the Heritage Whisper. My downstairs, where I have the diffuser, is 2600 sq ft, and I smell the oils every time I walk through any door from outside. The other day I was sitting on the sofa in the afternoon and looking across the room at my flu stricken husband who was asleep in his chair. The sun was streaming through the blinds, and I actually saw these ribbons swirling and tumbling over each other like gossamer. I was taken aback for a moment until I realized it was the oils floating and permeating the atmosphere of the room. It was an amazing site! I have a water diffuser from an MLM, but it basically mists the oil and water up in one small area and then it falls to the floor. Seems more like a can of air freshener effect to me. - Sally
4. I have both the Hopewell Pro and Whisper diffusers. Both are quiet, efficient and carry the oils over a LARGE area. - Laurie
