Aroma therapy is a centuries-old technique to promote everyday wellness. With the growing popularity of essential oils, this technique has made its way into everyday life. Lavender for sleep, citrus for alertness and peppermint for decongestion — you’ve likely heard all the claims.
However, no matter how you feel about essential oils, there’s something soothing about infusing your environment with a pleasant scent. And aroma diffusers are an affordable and aesthetically pleasing way to do so.
To use this product, you simple fill it with water and drop in a small amount of your favorite oil. The diffuser will then release a light mist with the scent of the oil. Many of these diffusers glow in different colors, so you can select a shade for ultimate relaxation.
Here are some of the best aroma diffusers available right now.
