This foot-spa neatly folds away into the width of a couple of inches and can easily be stowed away. To set up, simply push the foot-spa out and place on the floor.

This insulated porcelain device allows you to gently diffuse spa quality aromatherapy oils into the air, to create the ultimate mood of relaxation and luxury.
With the Puressentiel Gentle Heat Diffuser, the essential oils are diffused effectively without losing their quality and retaining their properties. We found that the diffuser took around 10 minutes to fill the average room with wonderful aromas! Plus, the device is super safe and fully heat regulated, with a maximum temperature of 45°C and an automatic shutdown after 58 minutes of use. So there is no need to worry about safety either!
This device is also ideal for for people who live with asthma & dust allergies within the home, thanks to an air purification oil. I suffer with asthma and dust allergies myself, so it was a pleasure to feel the air seem to actually purify and feel clean around me.
