The dōTERRA Lotus diffuser/Aroma Lite diffuser uses modern air purification technologies such as nanosilver filtration, cold catalyst filtration, active carbon filtration, electrostatic filtration, and so on. This ensures that the active ingredients in our essential oils are completely discharged allowing it to naturally release the full efficacy of the oils aroma-therapeutic effect.
