Essential oil diffusers are friends of well-being: they are devices with which the aromas of natural oils with beneficial properties are emanated into the air, as aromatherapy teaches. This term, aromatherapy, was coined in the early 20th century by René-Maurice Gattefossé after accidentally getting burned with a tub on which lavender essential oil was boiling. Since then, that word has come a long way: aromatherapy is now widely used for skin care, for personal and domestic hygiene, for relaxation and mental well-being.
Since today more than ever we need something that has a remarkable calming capacity , the essential oil diffuser is certainly a great alternative. To help you choose the one that best suits your needs and your home, we have selected what we believe are the 10 best essential oil diffusers currently on the market.
