ASAKUKI Essential Oil Diffuser

"This diffuser has an auto-timer so I have the option to leave it on until the water runs out or just turn it on for an hour to refresh a room. It quickly lets off a powerful scent, which I like, and the faux woodgrain makes it feel nicer, too. The lights set a calming mood while I do yoga. Basically, it’s perfect." - Molly Miller, Assistant Editor

BUY IT: Amazon, $20.99 (Originally $30.99)

NOW Solutions Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser

"I love diffusing lavender while I sleep, and this bamboo diffuser fits perfectly on my nightstand, blends in with my bedroom décor and shuts off automatically. It diffuses up to seven hours on continuous or 14 on intermittent. It’s also easy to clean and refill with water by removing the lid." - Laura James, Assistant Editor

BUY IT: Amazon, $40.27

GreenAir SpaVapor+

"I’ve tried many mini diffusers in the past, and this one is by far my favorite. I add a few drops of peppermint essential oil, and it disperses the scent quite well considering how quiet it is. The subtle humming noise is great for a shared office environment and for overnight use. I’ve recommended it to a few people, and everyone has been pleased!" - Farima Alavi, Editor

BUY IT: Amazon, $25.93 (Originally $31.99)

WEIFA Cactus Humidifier

"I received this diffuser/humidifier as a gift from a colleague. I love it, it’s the perfect desk accessory. With the addition of some key essential oils, I can change the mood of my cube. A little lavender when I need to relax, citrus when I need an energy boost, and peppermint to recharge my brain. The humidifier is a bonus. The air in our office is so dry, especially in the winter, my plants and I enjoy the extra burst of moisture." - Jackie McGilvray, Editor

BUY IT: Amazon, $11.99

InnoGear Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser

"I bought this a few years ago to see if I would even use a diffuser. (It turns out I use it every day.) There’s nothing fancy about this particular model, but it has all the features I want and need for a small nightstand device. It’s super quiet (perfect for bedtime!) and automatically shuts off when the water runs out after about 6-8 hours of intermittent use through the night. I’ve even packed it up in my luggage to use at hotels and rentals to keep my sleep quality consistent. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth on this baby." - Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor

BUY IT: Amazon, $19.99

SpaRoom Scentifier Diffuser

"What I like about the SpaRoom Diffuser is that I can use it in multiple spaces and places because it can run off batteries and a USB cord depending on my needs." - Missy Woodward, Digital Content Development Coordinator
