VaporEze Waterless Humidifier Review & Giveaway!



A big thanks to A Mother's Boutique for being a big sponsor of the Baby Mama Shower!




Vapor-Eze Waterless Vaporizer Review & Giveaway
Here's a product that'll make you wonder and be glad at the same time: a waterless vaporizer. One of the things we don't enjoy as people in general is sickness, particularly if it's in our children and involves the respiratory tract. One of the solutions we use for that problem is a humidifer, but with that comes parts to clean, heavy jugs of water to lug around, and electric cords that you hope won't get wet in the process. LoveBug is almost 18-months-old and is just getting over being sick for the second time in her life (thank God). The first time was on her very first birthday (I attribute that long stretch to breast milk). The second time was just recently along with my self. We seem to be plauged by the enver ending cold (I'm just clearing up now after more than 2 weeks!), but have been able to get through this illness WITHOUT the use of a humidifer. :-) Let me tell you more.

VaporEze has been around for over 13 years, providing a very small (can hold it in the palm of my hand) waterless vaporizer/aromatherapy machine. It's a pretty neat product, but an even neater company since they do all of the manufacturing in the US and use Sertoma Centre (a workshop to employ people with significant handicaps) to do the packaging. You can purchase the machine with the essential oil pads, and also purchase the pads alone separately.

Here's what they say...
Product Description: The Vapor-Eze Vaporizer / Aromatherapy appliance uses the latest in “heat activation” and “aromatherapy” technology to provide relief from respiratory symptoms. (Allergy, asthma, bronchitis, colds and flu, coughs and sore throats, and sinusitis). Thanks to the carefully formulated refill pads, the Vapor-Eze vaporizer / aromatherapy unit can be used day or night, at home or in the office. Simply plug it in, and breathe a sigh of relief.


How it Works: The vaporizer / aromatherapy unit has been designed to use no-mess replaceable pads that are impregnated with a carefully formulated blend of pure Menthol and Eucalyptus oil. Each pad will last from six to ten hours, depending on the setting used during operation (Low, Med. or High). Five long lasting pads are supplied with each vaporizer. Extra refill packs are sold separately.

Features:
• Waterless Vaporizer
• 100% Natural Oils
• Safe – Can be used by newborns & senior citizens
• Silent Operation
• Built in Night Light
• There is no Water for Mold spores or bacteria to grow in
• 1 year warranty
• Three settings – Low, Medium, and High
• On/Off switch
• Uses as much electricity as an average light bulb

What we think...
I've been using this purely as an aromatherapy machine and then as a humidifier when we were sick since receiving it in the mail. I'm really impressed by the size of the machine and how well the essential oil scents permeate the air (particularly the lavendar one); one neat thing is that you could actually use your own EO's to scent a pad to use in the machine, though I haven't done this yet. We did experience less coughing when we used the machine in our bedroom and found that the closer you are to the menthol/eucalyptus pad, the more effective it was in relieving respiratory symptoms. If you're really stuffed up, I'd go with a regular humidifier, but if your symptoms are none to moderate, I'd go with the VaporeEze. I think it's an affordable product at $19.99-$24.99, awesome because of the size, weight, and effectiveness, and would be great for all ages and especially allergy sufferers. In fact, I just lent it to my sister so she can use the lavendar pads for aromatherapy while birthing her first baby! If it came down to the VaporeEze or a traditional humidifier, I would recommend going with the VaporeEze. It's effective and easier/safer than a water vaporizer!

  2. i subscribe! by the way, that patchouli cinnamon blend i mentioned in my last comment is the reason for my email name (stinksopurdy)...my husband actually wrote a song by that name because of comments i received when wearing those oils. i guess patchouli's not for everybody, but i sure love it! :)

  13. Hmmm...this would be awesome as we have not purchased a vaporizer for our little one! I have always liked the unique smell of Menthol Eucalyptus so that is what I really want to try.
