Best Essential Oil Diffuser – Aromatherapy Diffuser
July 2019 update
Before I get into my review of the best essential oil diffuser I have found, I would like to share that I have been using essential oils for over 10 years and during that time I have had the opportunity to buy and try more diffusers than I would like to admit. I have spent a lot of time testing to find the best diffuser which meets my needs in terms of efficiency, affordability, design and therapeutic integrity.
My #1 Diffuser Choice: Redolescence Nebulizer
The Redolescence Essential Oil Nebulizing Diffuser is designed to maximize the biological effect while minimizing the consumption of essential oils. We have tested numerous diffusers from various manufacturers over the years. This is the only diffuser that has met our standards and we are confident in labeling it the best essential oil diffuser!
Why we like it:
- Made of Wood and Pyrex glass
- Extremely compact yet can be used in areas up to 800 sqft
- Preserves the natural essence and complete therapeutic benefits of essential oils by effectively transforming them into a micro fine vapor without the use of heat or water. These micro particles permeate the air and may remain suspended for hours, fully intact, with all of their NATURAL defenses against airborne Viruses, Bacteria, Mold, Pests and Odors. Other common uses are for Respiratory Therapy, Mood Enhancement, Relaxation and Well being, Air Purification and more.
- Made In an environment where workers are well paid and have health benefits
- One of the only companies that manufactures only non oil altering diffusers. While the Redolescence is our favorite, all of their diffusers are excellent quality.

How diffusers work
This questions seems to come back often in conversation with other essential oil lovers. What is the best essential oil diffuser? There are many options on the market today and it seems like all diffusers have their benefits, but is there one that is the best? Let’s look at the pros and cons of each type together.
Diffusers that use heat
These range from simple ceramic pots with candles to more advanced units with electric heating elements. People seem to like these because they diffuse oils rapidly, however, the heat has a tendency to denature the oils and remove some of their therapeutic benefits. These are our least favorite and rank #3 in our preferred diffusion method list.
Diffusers that use water
These diffusers require that you add your essential oil to a small amount of water. A small electrical motor will then work to create a mist which diffuses the oil in the space. These diffusers are quite popular as the mist ads a soothing effect in addition to the lovely aroma of the essential oils. These are particularly popular in massage and spa settings. On the downside, adding essential oils to water tends to dilute the oils and once more lessen some of their therapeutic qualities. These are a step up from heat diffusers and rank #2 in our preferred diffusion method list.
Diffusers that use air
Air diffusers are also known as nebulizing diffusers. These use very fine glass tubing and compressed air to create a fine mist which diffuses the oil in the space. These diffusers require only pure essential oil and use no heat or water. In my humble opinion, these are the best types of diffusers as they do not denature the oil they are diffusing, you are able to reap 100% of the therapeutic benefits. The only con I see is that these tend to consume a little more oils than other diffusion methods. Air diffusers rank #1 in our preferred diffusion method list.
If you buy therapeutic grade essential oils, doTERRA or Youg Living for example, you know that essential oils can be expensive. Each bottle of essential oil can require several pounds of lavender or whatever plant/flower/fruit it is distilled from. This has a cost and when you know what goes into the making of quality essential oils you know that there is a reason behind the higher price. This will also help you understand that oils that are sold in stores or at a lower price point cannot be pure and will often contain fillers or additives.
When diffusing oils, you want to make sure you are using the best quality and the best diffuser. You pay good money for your oils, it would be a shame to heat them up or add water to them when you want to enjoy their full potential. Having worked with essential oils for the last 10 years I can only recommend nebulizing diffusers.
