Best Essential Oil Diffusers

If there was ever a time to invest in an essential oil diffuser, it’s now. Pumping soft aromas into our surroundings, home fragrance is such an easy yet effective way to uplift our mood and instil a sense of calm to our living/eating/working/exercising quarters.

‘Essential oils are ideal to assist us in stressful situations,’ says Jo Kellett, Tisserand Aromatherapy essential oils expert. According to the science, scent stimulates our olfactory system which in turn generates a reaction from our cognitive system which controls our emotions, heart rate, breathing and stress levels. ‘Just by smelling essential oils you will perceive an emotional change in your daily stress levels,’ says Kellet who recommends placing a diffuser near your workstation or on your bedside table.

Of course, it’s not just essential oil diffusers that can scent your home – candles and room sprays can also transform our living space. But the bonus of a diffuser is that you can pick and choose your oils – mixing up the scent depending on your needs. To reduce stress and anxiety, Kellett recommends mixing one drop of neroli with two drops of frankincense and five drops of bergamot. For a good night’s sleep, try lavender. And if you’re struggling to stay focused, give rosemary a whirl.
