The best-scented diffuser oil for making your home smell like a spa. They also make the best housewarming gifts for friends. Flame-free and completely safe, they pump out billowing, fresh plumes of fragrant water vapor and are very easy to operate and maintain, only occasionally having to be filled with a small amount of water and a few drops of scented oil.

Is your atmosphere feeling a little drab? Using an oil diffuser is one way to instantly freshen things up, adding some moisture to the air while emanating the scent of your choice softly throughout your space.

Ultrasonic oil diffusers are the most popular and widely available type, only needing a small amount of distilled water and a few drops of an essential oil to operate.

When switched on, a small disc located at the base of the device vibrates at an incredibly fast speed, disrupting the water held inside and breaking apart the water and oil molecules so that they turn to vapor. The mist is then channeled out of the device in a mesmerizing, billowing plume.

These devices are a fantastic alternative to air fresheners and scented candles, because they don’t disperse potentially harmful, unknown chemicals into the air, and the ultrasonic operation doesn’t pose a significant fire-hazard risk.

However, oil diffusers may not be the best air-freshening option for households with pets. Some essential oils are toxic to dogs and cats in varying doses, and folks who live in small-space homes or studio apartments are strongly recommended to eliminate all exposure that pets could possibly have to these substances.

Most of us have come across the heat method – we call these devices Oil Burners. You place the essential oils into a bowl or plate (sometimes with water) and use a heat source to evaporate the volatile oils into the air. The heat can be created by a candle (often a tealight) or an electrical source.
