We love our diffusers! We have multiple diffusers throughout our homes and we use oils every day to create an atmosphere of health and wellness. That’s why it was so important for us to find some really good diffusers. Here are the Best Inexpensive Essential Oil Diffusers to consider adding to your collection.
Of course, we love the diffusers from Young Living, and each of us has several. But, we are also open to trying value-priced options. We scoured through hundreds of options to narrow it down to a few that met our high standards.
This post was updated to feature only diffusers that meet our high standards.
Best Essential Oil Diffusers:
Why are these diffusers the best?
We’re picky and we only want to recommend the best diffusers to our readers. We used several criteria to determine which diffusers would make it on our favorites list:
- Priced under $20
- Ultrasonic diffusers (No heat!)
- Designed for essential oils (No warmers for synthetic perfumes)
- Positive customer reviews
This really narrowed down the field. In fact, very few diffusers made the cut.
Please note that Amazon offerings and pricing is ever-changing! Photos below may not match if they change things up.
