Everyone has those items that, initially, they didn’t think they needed. But after trying them, life feels different. Better. You don’t know how you lived without them, and you never want to go back to less efficient alternatives. For me, those have been things like my AirPods, my NutriBullet, and most recently, Vitruvi’s Glow Essential Oil Diffuser. Although this product has only been out for about a week, it has already made an indelible mark on my nighttime routine. To be specific, as soon as I come home from a long day or close my laptop after finishing work, I can’t wait to use it. The funny part is, like all other material goods that I’ve gradually become enamored with, I never thought I’d enjoy owning a diffuser. The concept of essential oils, itself, always carried a crunchy-granola vibe for me that I had no interest in. This new diffuser, however, is anything but. It actually makes my bedroom feel soothing and spa-like for a number of reasons.

The first thing that made an impression on me about the Glow diffuser was its size. Vitruvi’s editor-favorite Stone diffuser is beautiful but might be too large for those with limited space. But their latest product launch is adorably small, measuring just 7 inches tall. In fact, as I took it out of its packaging, I wondered, How is this tiny thing going to distribute scents throughout my entire bedroom? But it did so in no time! I just pulled the dome-shaped lid off, filled the base with water up to the marked fill line, and selected an oil blend from Vitruvi’s signature scent kit. Then, I poured about 15 drops of oil into the water, put the diffuser’s cover back on, and held down the power button. To choose between a 4- or 8-hour run time, you just have to change how many times you press and hold the button.

After turning the diffuser on, I left my room for about 20 minutes. When I came back in, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the entire space smelled like a high-end spa. No matter which scent you choose from the kit, it’ll make the surrounding area (up to 300 square feet!) smell clean, luxurious, and slightly herbal in the best way possible.

But I have to say, my favorite part about the Glow diffuser is that, well, it glows. I nap every day and hate doing so in the dark because I wake up feeling discombobulated. The diffuser’s soft light keeps me aware of my surroundings and, combined with its soft hum, lulls me to sleep. It’s like a chic nightlight and noise machine all in one! And because the diffuser is just $65 and only requires a few drops of essential oil per session, I’d categorize it as totally affordable. Trust me when I say, this is the best bedroom accessory if you’re looking to destress and truly relax.
