Anyone got a Neom Wellbeing Pod?

I am trying to get away from candles. I have a couple of oil burners and an electronic oil burner but looking for something that pumps out a bit more for a bigger room.

Anyone have a Neom Wellbeing Pod? Looking for feedback on how much mist and scent it pumps out and whether it is a gimmick or good idea for someone like me who loves a bit of Zen and essential oils.

Wow it's expensive! What's the difference between it and a diffuser you can buy for ten quid that looks the same?

Titsinknicks · 30/11/2020 09:48

Ah so the outer shell is ceramic - but the insidey bit looks pretty standard?

I bought the white company one which is significantly cheaper with the 20% discount and I highly rate it

I bought one a few weeks ago. It does look nice on my desk, especially when the light on it is turned on as well and it has stopped my study smelling of cat, boys and the bin. Was it worth what I paid for it? Hmmm I dunno. But if you fancy a little treat, it's not a bad shout.

I had one and then sold it!
IMO, the neom scents were all too musky/heavy. They were not pleasant aromas to me.

It pumped out plenty of scent and its functionality was good. The outer is porcelain and I was concerned that if it got broke (you have to handle it and move it around every time you use it so not unrealistic ) it would render it useless, hence why I sold it and recouped most of the £120 and got a £22 pretty indestructible one that does the same job.
I still don't use it a great deal but at least it'd live if the damn cat or kids knocked it off the window sill.

I have one from Muji. I love it. They do a good selection of scents though I guess any diffuser oil would do.

The one I actually want is The Young Living Aria. I saw it once in someone house and I was mesmerised. It is very large and has a wood bottom and glass dome. You see all the steam swirling and it changes colour. It has music which I wouldn't use though and that's what stumps it up to a whopping £300. I've searched eBay for years to get one 2md hand and saw one new for £200 but its still too much even though it would bring me joy.

I have a small electronic cheapo one that I am happy with but want to get a lovvvely one. Wink

I think they're basically all the same tbh, amazon sell hundreds, some of them are much Frankie looking than others. Mines a wooden base and frosted too, doesn't look cheap at all, I love it and use it ey more than I thought I would actually. The noise is very relaxing. I think it was about £20.

MrDarcysMa · 30/11/2020 17:50

you can get them on amazon from £10, they all do the same thing. no need to spend a fortune. the oil you use is the most important thing.

I coveted one last Christmas when they were all sold out, I got a normal diffuser from amazon and bought the pack of four neom essential oils. Does the same job

ToooTicky · 30/11/2020 19:26

I bought one a few months ago, gave it to my daughter yesterday. I found the Neom oils disappointingly samey, and they didn’t actually smell very pleasant. I’d had Neom reed diffusers previously which I loved, so was quite surprised by that!

Still love those bloody Diptique candles though!

TableNiner · 30/11/2020 20:57

I had one but sold it as I started worrying about essential oils around my cat as many are toxic. It was a nice, classy product, scent was pretty strong but not overpowering

Pootle40 · 30/11/2020 21:15

I got one last month and I am loving it. Have it on my desk while WFH all day.

ArmsClary · 01/12/2020 13:46

@MrDarcysMa can you tell me more about the oils? The reason I'd also been considering the Neom Pod is that it seems to promote a natural rather than toxic aroma...I haven't a clue. If I buy a cheaper version, what types of oil would I be looking for? Are you able to avail of Christmas scents, for example, using natural, non-toxic oils?

Midlifemission · 06/12/2020 10:32

Ooh this has been on my wish list since last year too !
I am a huge Neom fan but interesting to hear people say the oils don’t smell like the diffusers - that would be a huge disappointment!!

Sparklyring · 06/12/2020 13:15

We have one and absolutely love it. We have it in our bedroom and put it on the timer so fall asleep to it.

ritzbiscuits · 06/12/2020 13:32

I have an Amazon one for £20 and use Tisserand essential oils. Got 2 for £9 from Holland and Barrett, I couldn't justify £20 per Neom oil.

I've also bought two White Company fragrance oils for Xmas. £8 each and the aroma is really strong.

So in short I don't think you need to spend a serious amount on a diffuser, but if you're loaded, go for it!

I just bought the John Lewis version, £50, ceramic and works brilliantly.

ShouldHaveCouldHaveWouldHave · 06/12/2020 17:08

I have one! I love it. Luckily I got with a discount code too so it was £65. My favourite oils are Perfect Peace, Christmas Wish and Bedtime Hero. Totally worth it my opinion, I’ve had it on since 10ish this morning and it’s still going.

StatisticallyChallenged · 06/12/2020 17:09

I have the JOhn Lewis version too but the Neom oils and I love it

Lily83 · 06/12/2020 17:21

I bought one from Amazon for a friend for £20 which didn't last.
Then I got a Neals Yard One and some Neals Yard essential oils [ you can use any] and she has been very very pleased with it
Also everything from Neals Yard is ethically sourced
