This year has been quite a whirlwind, but let’s look on the bright side: 2020 has certainly taught us how to turn our homes into relaxing oases where we can stay safe and unwind. From cozy blankets to kitchen accessories, we’ve covered a lot of ways to make sure we’re all getting what we need from our homes, but nothing adds ambiance like a powerful aroma. There are many ways to scent your home, but right now, we’re loving essential oils. They disperse natural oils into the air, adding fragrances that can even help alleviate feelings of anxiety. Since we’re all in need of some extra zen these days, we’ve rounded up eight essential oil diffusers (at all price points) that we love.

Urban Outfitters

This essential oil diffuser is compact, affordable, and seriously chic. Available in three muted colors, we love the green option for a natural look. It powers through a USB connection and can be easily transported, whether from room to room or on the go. It's even equipped with an auto-shut-off function. Just add a few drops of your favorite essential oils for hours of relaxation.

Another compact option, this Jasmine Aroma Diffuser gently releases essential oils either continuously or at 20-minute intervals–you choose. Using ultrasonic technology, it transforms oil and water into a fine mist, adding both moisture and fragrance to your home at the same time.
