NovaFuse By Plant Therapy Review

Plant Therapy NovaFuse Review

This is a NovaFuse diffuser review that I was lucky enough to try out for myself. In this review, I will show you my real experience with the new NovaFuse essential oil diffuser.

I have to admit when Plant Therapy releases new essential oils, blends, and diffusers I am all over it. They are an awesome essential oil company I have supported for quite a while now. In fact, they are my number one rated essential oil brand. Click here to see my full review of their company.

I was interested in this diffuser because I wanted something small for my office. As most people already know there are a ton of essential oil diffusers to choose from. So, it can make it really hard to pick one out.

The first thing I noticed about the NovaFuse is the quality. Meaning, I have purchased cheap essential diffusers in the past. I noticed right away how much better crafted this diffuser was over cheaper other ultrasonic diffusers that you might purchase from Amazon or from a department store.

Next, I did notice how sleek it looks. The one I got was black and boy does it look sharp. It’s all black with a “Plant Therapy” logo on the front. Then there are wire meshes with a light that cycles through different colors. Really, looks awesome at night.

But, pay close attention because I am going to show you everything you need to know about the NovaFuse by Plant Therapy in this review.

The Good About The NovaFuse

  • Highly Respectable Brand.
  • Intermittent Mode (15 seconds on, 15 seconds off).
  • Changes Colors.
  • Sleep Design.
  • Easy To Use.
  • Uses A USB or Standard Plugin.
  • Quality Made Diffuser.
  • Is A Humidifier.
  • Cheaper Than Other “Name Brand” Diffusers.

The Bad About The NovaFuse

  • Isn’t Ideal For Bigger Rooms.
  • Only One Setting To Control Mist.
  • Doesn’t Come With Measuring Cup.

How Do You Use The NovaFuse?

NovaFuse ButtonsSimplicity is one of the strong points to using the NovaFuse.

A lot of diffusers you have to first lift off the top and then an insert (as you can see from InnoGear 150 mL review).

However, with the NovaFuse all you have to do is lift of the outer casing, put water in, and 4-5 drops of essential oils and you are good to go.

Two Buttons

There are only 2 buttons on the NovaFuse. I know it sounds confusing, right?

Mist Button

The mist button you push once and it turns the ultrasonic diffuser on. It will run until it runs out of the water and then automatically shuts off.

If you push the button again it will go into an intermittent mode. Meaning, it will stay on for 15 seconds and then turn off for 15 seconds.

Lastly, if you push the mist button again it will turn the diffuser off.

Light Button

The light button controls the lighting as you might have guessed.

When you press the button ones it cycles through the colors. Then if you push the button again you cycle through the different colors which are blue, green, yellow, purple, and white. Lastly, you can completely turn the light off.

How Long Does The NovaFuse Last With Water In It?

NovaFuse InsideThe reservoir’s capacity is 70 mL.

A lot of people might think that is pretty small, but as I will show you it last a lot longer than you might expect.

There is an orange fill marker which you are not supposed to overfill with this ultrasonic diffuser. If you do fill it over that light then the device will not correctly.

When in continuous mode the NovaFuse will last for 5 hours. When it’s in an intermittent mode it will run for 10 hours.

How Do You Clean It?

Cleaning the NovaFuse is very easy.

All you do is take the casing off put about a 4 teaspoons of white vinegar in with about 20 mL of water. Then let the diffuser run for about 10-15 minutes. Next, rinse it off in the sink and pour out the water. Then, I use a cotton ball and a paper towel to wipe it off.

How Loud Is The NovaFuse?

It’s not that loud. Meaning you can hear it run and when intermittent mode you can hardly hear it cycle on and off. I found this out while using it with lavender to help me fall asleep at night.

Also, if you want to know the exact dB I did contact customer support. I spoke with Kayla. Unfortunately they weren’t able to let me know how loud it was. It is one of the quieter diffusers compared to others in the industry, though.

How Big of An Area Does The NovaFuse Cover?

The NovaFuse does cover 269 square feet.

This makes it great for small to medium-sized rooms.

One thing I did notice about the NovaFuse is the scent does stay around much longer than other cheaper diffusers that I have tried out from Amazon.

I did test the NovaFuse from Plant Therapy essential oils, but also with Starwest Botanicals (see review), Aura Cacia (see review), Rocky Mountain Oils (see review), and Edens Garden (see review).

Warranty & Refund Policy Information?

Plant Therapy has a very good warranty and refund policy. They are actually one of the easier essential oil companies to work with. I’ve talked with customer support several times and they always answer your questions quickly.

It comes with a one-year limited warranty Also, you can return it within 90 days after purchasing the item. Also, if it’s been longer than 90 days contact Plant Therapy because they will work with you to make sure you are a happy customer.

Final Verdict

I do recommend the NovaFuse. It’s one of my favorite smaller essential oil diffusers. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s made from a company that I absolutely love, Plant Therapy.

If you learn anything from my NovaFuse review it should be this; you need a good quality name brand diffuser. True, there are cheap ones on Amazon, but you will notice a huge difference when you use it.

The design is very sleek. Again, I got the all black model, but they do have a white model, too.

It does use a standard wall plugin, but also there is a USB attachment, which does make it convenient for plugging into your laptop.

The price tag is decent, too. Other companies like Young Living (see review) & doTERRA (see review) charge twice as much for a diffuser of the same quality.

It’s a very simple diffuser to use. With just two buttons. I really like the intermittent mode (which turns on for 15 seconds and then turns off for 15 seconds.

The only negative thing I can think to say about it is if you have a larger room the NovaFuse won’t be able to cover larger rooms.

But, it’s an awesome diffuser and I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone.

  1. The NovaFuse seems like a really interesting product. There are so many different diffuser to choose from. It can be hard to find the right one. But, how do you think it compares to the doTERRA Petal diffuser?

    This is a great review on the diffuser, and I will most certainly try the NovaFuse out after I read up on what essential oils are key to providing me with the health benefits I’m looking for.

    Thanks for all of the information you have provided here, very in depth.

    1. Hey Dalton,

      You got that right. There are a lot of diffusers to choose from. Way too many and so many people get overwhelmed and end up making a purchase based on the price tag, alone.

      The NovaFuse is a very good diffuser. It is cheaper than the Petal diffuser by doTERRA. However, the Petal one doesn’t do intermittent mist and only has a timer for 1,2, and 4 hours.

      The Petal does cover more area of coverage, too. It covers 330 sq. ft verses 269 sq. ft. However, the AromaFuse by Plant Therapy is the model that compares with the Petal by doTERRA.

      The AromaFuse does cover 538 sq. ft. though. It’s about the same price as the Petal diffuser by doTERRA. I have actually written about it here:

  2. I was considering getting the NovaFuse by Plant Therapy.  It looks like a pretty good diffuser! What I like about this product is how easy it is to use.  Can’t get any simpler than two buttons!  I do like the USB, but is this something that most other diffusers have, too?.

    I do want to use it in my living room, though.  Are there any other diffusers that you would recommend other than the NovaFuse?  It looks like it might be kind of small.

    1. Hey mzakapon,

      Yep, it’s certainly an easy to use essential oil diffuser. Certainly a great value diffuser for the money. Plant Therapy always has great products.

      No, actually a lot of diffusers these days are not USB diffusers. More companies are slowly changing to them, though. But, I like it because I am always on my laptop and it so easy to power my diffuser that way.

      For a diffuser that will cover a larger space I would check out the AromaFuse. It’s also by Plant Therapy. It’s another awesome diffuser.

  3. Some of my colleagues absolutely love to use the microwave to cook whatever they can think of at the office, sometimes even fish. It often ends up smelling the entire office up, door closed or not! This seems like a pretty viable option since I have a smaller office anyway.

    Out of curiosity, how quickly does it actually diffuse the scent into a room? I have maybe a 10×10 office and wouldn’t need it on all the time, but mostly when people decide to cook something that is very aromatic.  Would it cover the scents up quite quickly?

    1. Hey Craig,

      A diffuser can certainly help to get the odor out of rooms. Fish is not a pleasant smell at all.

      From the second that you turn the diffuser on it starts to disperse the oils into the air. It can take 5-10 minutes or get around inside the room, though. You could also make an air spray which might be a better option for this instance.

      Plant Therapy actually does make an deodorizing synergy blend. It has palmarosa, lemon, patchouli, coriander, grapefruit, cypress, bergamot, and tea tree in it.

  4. Thank you for taking the time to review the NovaFuse diffuser. I’m looking for a quality diffuser fo my home office and I love the look of this one.

    2 questions for you…

    1) I know you couldn’t get the decibel level of the device but can you describe it in relation to something else, just to give me an idea of the noise level? An example would be “It’s about as loud as the cooling fan on a laptop.”, etc.

    2) It doesn’t come in pink right. I saw a similar one by Plant Therapy and I know my wife would like a pink one.

    Thank you so much,


    1. Hey Scott,

      It’s probably quieter than a laptop cooling fan. Mostly, sounds like a real faint dripping. Actually kind of relaxing, though.

      No, the NovaFuse doesn’t come in pink at this time, though. The two color options are black and white.

  5. I like the simplicity of this but, also, as i’ve gone through my share of cheap ones, I love that you don’t have to worry about the water running out with the auto-shut-off. 

    You said the magic words that the scent “stays around longer” because, to me, that’s a tell-tale sign of a better quality diffuser and also, how long it takes to permeate the range it says it has.

    I love the power of essential oils and the power of a great diffuser.  Have you ever tried any of the “essential oil wizardry” products in your diffusers? 

    1. Hey Fyre,

      It’s very important to have a good quality diffuser and the NovaFuse is certainly a great quality diffuser. Not to mention, everything by Plant Therapy is pretty solid.

      No, I haven’t actually heard of essential oil wizardry, though. I might have to keep them in mind because I am always trying out new products and essential oils.

  6. Extraordinary review of the Plant Therapy NovaFuse!  I think you answered every question I would have right down to how to clean it except I wonder how it is powered? It says it is a USB diffuser so is it only powered by a USB plug in?  Not a big deal, but would really like to know before purchasing it.

    1. Hey Paul,

      It comes with an adapter which you can use a regular standard wall plug in. If you want to use a USB you just disconnect the wall adapter and plug it into your USB.

  7. I am actually looking for a new diffuser and as you have said it can get quite confusing when browsing on the internet.  There are so many to choose from online.

    Therefore, I do appreciate that I came along to your site and reading your detailed review on the NovaFuse diffuser makes it very clear that, I too, like to try it out.

    I only need it for our bedroom and the size it is covering will be perfect.

    I certainly will read your other reviews.  With Young Living and doTERRA I do believe their prices are too high and this was always a bit of my concern that I might pay too much for “just” a little diffuser.

    The only two color options are black and white, right?  I do remember Plant Therapy having different color diffusers years ago.

  8. Hey there,

    Ive really enjoyed reading this article as you’ve provided us with tons of valuable information on the “NovaFuse Diffuser”. I’m looking forward in buying this product as the price tag is within my budget. I have a couple of questions that I want to ask before I proceed. Can you put regular tap water in it? How much does the shipping fees cost? 

    Thanks in advance for answering my question. Keep up the good work! 

  9. I really appreciate reading reviews written from firsthand experience. Based on your unbiased review of the NovaFuse product, I think it’s worth giving a try. I love that it is easy to install and use right away. Having a 90-day refund policy makes sense. Meaning, for people who doubt if the product lives up to expectation, they have sufficient time to make a decision. I am currently not a fan of essential oils, but with a decent price tag, I might be tempted to give it a try.

  10. Great review. I have been shopping for a new diffuser and I know it’s a strange question, but wanted to know if the adapter plugs into the bottom of this diffuser. I don’t know why so many are made with the plug going in on the bottom. It’s so inconvenient when your diffuser has water in it. I’m looking for one with the plug going in on the back, so I can attach it after the water is in without spilling it.

    1. Hey,

      That is a good question. I know it’s a huge hassle when the plugs are on the bottom of the diffuser. I can’t understand why so many diffusers even put the plugin on the bottom! The plugin is located on the side. Therefore, you won’t end up spilling the water when you are plugging it in.
