Nowadays the most common diffuser is ultrasonic diffuser which can be easily found in Muji Stores. Ultrasonic diffuser uses water with the addition of few drops of essential oils. The vibrations from the ultrasonic waves create water vapor and is released together with essential oils.
What is a Nebulizing Diffuser (also called nebulizer)?
Nebulizing Diffuser is a newly developed diffuser which directly evaporates 100% undiluted essential oils without water involved. It is considered to be the most effective diffuser as it releases a much more potent vapor than the ultrasonic diffusers. They diffuse oils in their purest form (without dilution), thus creating a more intense aromatic experience, dispersing the scent over a larger area. Even though the essential oils are used quicker (since they are not being diluted) you only need to run the nebulizer for about 1-2 hours at a time. The vapor that is released, is enough to concentrate the space very quickly in that time (also purifying the air), as well as create a lingering aroma for quite a while after shut-off.
Here is a video to show how a nebulizing diffuser works:
Here are some Pros and Cons of a nebulizing diffuser comparing to ultrasonic diffuser
