The busiest shopping weekend of the year starts on Black Friday, and we can’t think of a more fitting time to lean all the way into some aromatherapy. If you’re in need of some scent-induced R&R, now is the best time to buy an essential oil diffuser. Well-known brands like Saje Natural Wellness and Vitruvi are dropping prices on some of their best scent-wafting devices.
Essential oil diffusers not only freshen up any space, but many of the oils also have other various therapeutic benefits. “Aromatherapy can be beneficial in the management of certain symptoms such as anxiety, pain, nausea, and insomnia,” Megan E. Voss, an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing and director of integrative therapy, pediatric blood and marrow transplant at the school’s Masonic Children’s Hospital, previously told Allure.
Additionally, several scientific studies have found that some essential oils (including lavender, chamomile, eucalyptus, lemon, rose, and grapefruit, to name a few) may positively impact your mood, health, and nervous system. Plus, whether you’re an aromatherapy newbie or seasoned scent pro, essential oil diffusers make it easy to indulge in some (very well-deserved) self-care.
Read on for a few of our favorites that you can score on sale now. Simply add water, add a few drops of your favorite oil, and sniff the stress away.
Now is truly the time to get that essential oil diffuser you’ve been willing to splurge on — but would prefer a slightly less splurge-y splurge, if you know what we mean. Vitruvi diffusers are among the fancier options out there, and totally worth the spend, but getting them on sale just makes the aromatherapy smell even sweeter, don’t you think?
We especially love the new Move Diffuser, a cordless, sleek, cylindrical model that can go anywhere in the house — since it runs up to eight hours before needing to be charged. It comes in seven stylish colors (Willow is pictured above), and, like everything on the Vitruvi website it will be marked down by 30 percent from November 21 to 29. Need an excuse to pick up a second Vitruvi diffuser for someone else on your gift list? Orders over $150 will get a lovely limited-edition oil tray.
At first glance, the person to whom you give the Saje Natural Wellness Aroma (Be) Free Matte White may not even realize it’s a diffuser. It looks like a stunning contemporary art piece from a museum gift shop — and that’s definitely part of its charm. But its main purpose is to scent your space for up to eight cordless hours.
