Story

Product image for illustration purposes only.

 A large part behind the design of the Solaroma, and the use of no batteries was in order to fit with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. By using solar power, we can help to reduce the waste that occurs from using multiple batteries with devices, and allows us to harness the natural resource of the Sun. We want to go forward with all our projects with these SDGs in mind, trying to help change the world one product at a time.

Be it in the office, or on your terrace, or even on your dashboard, the Solaroma is there for you in any space!

Relax as you commute in your car with your favourite aromas! We know that rush hour and commuting can be a drag so why not spice up your trip with new smells and feel the stress melt away!


With the special top used, you can use any type of essential oil aromas you would like!

Due to its small and compact form, it is quiet when spinning, however can disperse aromas extremely widely

Solaroma is a solar powered aroma diffuser that spins to diffuse the aroma inside! 

The spinning top is made from oak, with a hole made so you can drop essential oils inside, so that when the sun hits the solar powering surface, the top spins and releases the oils slowly. 


As the powering mechanism is solar powered, you don’t need any batteries to make it spin! It only spins when the sun hits it, and when moved back into the shadow, it automatically stops. The diffuser doesn’t store charge, and only works when the sun hits it. 


We created the Solaroma with the traditional Japanese Spinning Top ( Koma 独楽) in mind. One of the reasons for doing so, is the way that by spinning, the oak top also allows for faster and wider dispersion of the aroma! 

As the oak top spins, it releases the oils in to the air. Due to the spinning motion, it means that the aromas are span further out. Compared to traditional oil dispersers, this spinning can actually increases its diffusion by about 10x. When the sun hits the base, you can be sure to smell the aroma super quickly! 

Oils aren’t included with the return as in some cases they can’t be sent overseas, other cases people may be allergic to the type of oil we may send and so on. Please choose your own favourite oil to use inside the top!

On the base of the Solaroma is a gel seal that works by sticking to the surface. This means that it doesn’t leave any marks on surfaces when you remove it. If you feel like the sticking power is declining, you can just wash it with water, and the gel seal will return back to near new! 

As the base is solar powered, and doesn’t use batteries, you can feel free to wash the base by hand with cold water. You can also use various aromas with the top! When we created the Solaroma, we wanted to create a product that you can carry on using forever. 


We recommend you try to use the Solaroma whether the light can hit it! It’s great in the car on the dashboard, or on a window in the office! As it is really simple, easy to use, and compact, you can easily find a location for it! It’s also rather quiet, letting you enjoy amazing smells without needing to hear it being powered up or spinning.


Place on a sun facing windowsill for best results!

As the spinning mechanism is quiet, you can use it in the office without bothering anyone.

We hope you can enjoy using the Solaroma in a variety of locations!


How to use

The Solaroma is simple to use!

1. Remove the seal found on the back of the device and place it in the location you wish to use it.

2. Place a few droplets of essential oils inside the spinning top.

3. Wait for the sun to hit it, and watch as it spins!

How We Designed the Solaroma

We came up with the idea for the Solaroma, due to the change we have seen when it comes to remote working. Being able to have a pleasing smell wherever you go is something that is appealing, and so we started to look into making this type of product.

One of the things that we wanted to make sure was that we could use solar energy to make it work. One of the big reasons is that by doing so we can make a portable compact base that doesn’t rely on batteries. Not relying on batteries means that wherever you are you can use it, as well as being kind to the environment.

As well as this, we wanted to create a spinning top that was made out of oak wood, something that resembled the old spinning tops or koma that we played with as kids. It was actually this motion that let us come to the way of diffusing the aroma efficiently and to its maximum potential.
