Thinking About Buying a Diffuser? Read This First.

Josh and I had a diffuser a few years ago in our first home together, but didn't really know much about it or use it much. We ended up getting rid of it when we moved, and recently I decided to re-invest in one after seeing so many new articles pop up about the benefits of essential oils and how certain scents can evoke certain responses.

The Diffuser

After doing some research, we landed on this URPOWER Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser (that's only $20 on Amazon!). Things I like about it: it's not ugly (it's just a white container), it's relatively small (it can sit on my small-ish nightstand easily and doesn't take up too much room), it has different light settings (you can choose a color or no color), and it holds liquid for about seven hours, so we can leave it on all night when we sleep.

The Essential Oils

I've heard SO many different things about essential oils, and everyone seems to have their favorite brand and must-have scents. We started out with this Onepure Aromatherapy Essential Oils set of six, so we could try different scents and see what we liked best before investing. I have to say, I LOVE the lavender. We also picked up this Good Night Essential Oil and I use it every night when we go to bed—the scent immediately calms me down and signals in my brain it's time to wrap up for the day.

Other lines I've heard amazing things about include doTERRA (a bit on the pricey side, but this Serenity Essential Oil Restful Blend and this Balance Grounding Blend come highly recommended) and EO Products Essential Oils.
