Every stone cover is crafted by hand, lightweight, 5 mm in thickness, and painted with the most solid and durable colour. Every single diffuser is unique.
Inside each diffuser is a small ceramic plate that creates a cool, odourless water mist when vibrating, just like the steam around a waterfall. This vibration breaks the added essential oils into microscopic particles and spreads the mist in the air, so you can refresh your home easily. The volant diffusers produce 2.5 million vibrations per second to create the mist.
Yes. The volant diffuser need to be plugged into a power source to produce mist. There is a 1.5 meter-long power cable in the package. Due to its length, it is easy to hide the cord as well as move your diffuser around in your home.
The volant diffuser is an aroma diffuser utilizing ultrasonic technology and is designed to disperse scents from essential oils. The diffuser can cover an area of approximately 40 sqm.
Since the diffuser is based on ultrasonic technology, it creates steam and therefore adds some moisture into the air. If you use the volant diffuser at your workplace or where you sleep, increased humidity will be one of the benefits but not as much as a traditional air humidifier would.
Yes, it does. It works with the standard UK power cords.
Yes, every diffuser has the minimalistic white light. The light can be turned off/on as you wish with a button.
We produce premium oils with strict certification requirements for production and purity. Our oils are 100% pure and do not contain any synthetic substances, water, perfume or non-natural components. All our oils are certified organic.
Volant is a company that distributes essential oils directly from production to customers. We can therefore offer a lower price than multi-level marketing companies can.

We prefer to simply talk about the real quality of our products, without the use of "buzz-words" or empty marketing words. All our oils are 100% pure and certified organic. We test our essential oils in several stages of the production process. This elaborate process allows us to offer you some of the world's best essential oils at a reasonable price. The oils usually reach our customers within 1-3 months after they are produced, and the shelf life is three years, unopened.
You are not supposed to drink essential oils. We recommend consulting a medical professional if you do so.
Volant essential oils start their journey in different parts of the world. We are currently sourcing ingredients from 15 different countries: Brazil, Italy, Croatia, Hungary, Australia, UK, Russia, China, Haiti, Vietnam, France, Japan, Indonesia and Austria.
In order to maintain full quality control, most of our oils are distilled or cold pressed at our facilities in New Dehli.
All our oils have a shelf life of 3 years after the production date when unopened. We store them exposed to as little light as possible. We recommend that you store the oils at room temperature without direct sunlight.
The first thing you should do is consult a veterinarian. Your veterinarian knows best if your pet is more sensitive than others.
Most of our essential oils should be OK to use around pets. These are the products that we think are most pet friendly:
Should you choose to diffuse essential oils around your pet, we recommend:
- Using only small amounts of essential oils, 5-10 drops
- Make sure that the room is well ventilated with a window slightly open
- Always keep a door open so that the animal can enter and exit the room easily
- Watch how your pet responds to the aroma, and if you notice your pet resisting, discontinue
No - absolutely not. We have never tested volant products on animals, and we never will.
