My Prettier Oil Diffuser

Listen, I’m not gonna pretend that I know a bunch of stuff about essential oils. And I’m certainly not going to try to sell oils to you. There are smart people that can do better at both of those things. Take them or leave them, I don’t care, this is simply my diffusing story…


This year one of my goals was  to get to know essential oils a little bit better. I was curious.

Of course, I love diffusing oils, but I realized when I wasn’t diffusing, I’d unplug and hide the diffuser, because the one I got with my kit is ugly and looks like a Fisher Price toy faded in the sun. I considered buying the pretty glass and wood diffuser that my oil company sells, but I decided I’d rather send my kids to college.

So, I found a pretty diffuser on Amazon that I’m sure the oil people will tell me is all wrong. BUT, I’ve used it for a few months and LOVE it!

Every time I have guests at my house they ask where I got the diffuser (well, the men don’t just the women) so, I figured you might want to see it too.

If you want to learn more about oils, I’ll send you to Edie. If you want a pretty diffuser, then Amazon is the place.




  1. I have this one in my cart. :-)

  2. I love this one! One of the main things that’s kept me from diffusing is that I couldn’t find a reasonably priced one that I actually liked. This one is the one for me!

    “I decided I’d rather send my kids to college.” Ha! You kill me!

  4. “…but I decided I’d rather send my kids to college.” Ha! So funny!

  5. Thanks for the link to Amazon! Love it!

  6. I’ve had this one for about a year and I love it– it’s a little hard to twist open (maybe that’s just my arthritis though), but it’s nice to be able to leave it out all the time!

  7. I was having this same dilemma about a year ago, and honestly I stopped diffusing for awhile … perhaps because I was tired of fighting the ugly plastic thing on my counter! I appreciate you sharing your solution with all the added humor!

    OH.MY.GOODNESS! Thank you for sharing this!!! I just ordered it right after I read your post! Just the other morning I was looking at the Aria and wondering if I should just bite the bullet and buy it since it’s so much prettier than the other ones I have. I laughed out loud at your comment about the preference of sending your kids to college over having the pretty wood and glass one. Hilarious! :)

  9. Thanks so much for this! I’ve been putting up with my ugly plastic diffusers and would LOVE to have a better looking one. But why is it now $169 on Amazon!!?? We have Prime, but I’m
    not very familiar with how/why they change prices around.

  10. I’m wondering about the price as well…is $169 a good deal or did the price go up astronomically?

  11. I’m wondering what a good price is for this diffuser since it is $169.99 on Amazon. Seems like a lot of money for a diffuser to me, but I could be way out of touch.

    I’ve been thinking about getting this and now you’ve made my decision easier:) Howver, are you able to not have the color light on? I don’t like that part:/

  13. Things are very open and intensely clear explanation of issues. was truly information. Your website is very beneficial.

  14. Thanx for sharing such useful post keep it up :)
