We compiled a list of the best diffusers that will bring you good vibes and look great in your home, ahead.
FOR THE MINIMALIST
This millennial-pink stone diffuser belongs in an art museum. The pink ceramic base uses ultrasonic technology to diffuse, instead of heat the oil, to deliver a scent that can fill up to 555 square feet. If you live in New York, that means your entire apartment if you're lucky!
FOR THE SCIENTIST
A maplewood base and removable glass dome that directs the oils upward? Oh my. It also includes multi-colored LED lights and built-in-sounds to create a full-fledged big mood. You can see the caldron of diffusers in use here.
Aroma Therapy Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser
A diffuser for the on-the-go gal. The portable machine uses a fan to spread the oils scent so it's easy to bring to work or move around your house. It also has a night light, which is great for a kiddo or for atmosphere.
FOR A '70S OBSESSIVE
Directional Mist Ultrasonic Diffuser
If the lava lamp got a 2018 upgrade, it would be the this groovy piece. The panel projects an array of soothing rainbow patterns and the unit has an automatic shut-off in case you doze off mid-mood.
FOR THE SCI-FI LOVER
Essentail Oil Diffusers
Airome's diffusers are a bit on the wild side. You can choose from sixteen unique designs, all of which use ultrasonic technology to burn your oils. We're especially fond of of this ceramic white top and black base, which feels more mod succulent planter, less sci-fi pod.
FOR THE BUDDING BH
Beats plus scents. The Mogu Diffuser allows you to diffuse your favorite oils (it comes with one lavender oil to try) while listening to your favorite songs through its bluetooth speakers on the base of the machine. May we suggest a relaxing meditation track? Or some Billie Eilish?
FOR THE 4/20 FRIENDLY
Glass Aromatherapy Essential Oil
Yes, this glass diffuser looks a little like a bong...and that's a good thing! No two hand-swirled designs are alike, plus they come in a range of shades like magenta, cerulean, and mossy cannabis green.
FOR THE ACCENT PIECE
Add a bit of polish to your home with one of these jewel toned metallic diffusers. It's a unique decorative diffuser that will leave guests wondering where you got such a cool piece of art (And why your house smells so good).
FOR THE HIPPIE
Dream Essential Oil Diffuser
This porcelain diffuser is exactly what your coffee table needs. The center flower absorbs, then dissipates the oil into the air, to leave your home smelling of African daisy or Moroccan peony.
FOR THE WANNABE MORNING PERSON
June & May Diffuser With Built-In Speaker
Get a diffuser that can do it all. The June & May Diffuser boasts a clock andbluetooth speaker. You can wake up to the sweet sounds and smell of a new day.
