While you can use essential oils to increase your focus, soothe restlessness, or just add a pleasant scent to your home or office, one incredibly easy way to use them is in a diffuser, which diffuses their potent scents with water, dispersing the smell at a palatable level throughout a room at set intervals, and typically also offering a humidifying property.
Below we’ve outlined simple and energy-efficient essential oil diffusers, from all-day humidifiers to travel-size decoratives. If you don't have any essential oils yet and you're going to get your first diffuser, we recommend starting with picking up a sample-pack option like this base of five organic and plant-based essentials oils so that you can try out which scents work best for you.
