Best Oil Scents for Home Diffuser - Whole Home Scenting


Top Scent Diffuser Oils To Try in 2021

Picking an essential oil for your scent diffuser machine is a matter of personal preference, and scents are hardly a universal experience. Some people look for aromatherapy health benefits, such as reducing stress and emphasizing self-care. Others may rely on scented oils to create an ambiance, especially as people spend more time indoors. Either way, experimenting with new scents can be a fun way to find your favorites and to branch out from the tried and true usual selections. Here are some of the best scent diffuser oils of 2021 to try.

For Energy

Essential oils that give you a pep in your step are a good choice for the morning or in the early afternoon when you may need a boost to fight that slump. Citrus oils such as orange and lemon are classics, as are eucalyptus or tea tree oils, which can invigorate you and get your mind firing on all cylinders.

Get the same effect with an up-and-coming oil, such as grapefruit or bergamot, which smells like a blend of citrus with vanilla. Bergamot is what gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor and is also commonly found in men’s and women’s fragrances. If you prefer the mint family, consider peppermint, rosemary, or spearmint for the same invigorating properties.

For Relaxation

Calming scents, such as sandalwood, rose, or frankincense, are always a hit to help you relax, but other scents offer the same peaceful benefits that you may not have yet tried. For example, clary sage, either on its own or blended with cedarwood, can also reduce stress and invite a sense of peace. Expect similar results from earthy patchouli and geranium, which has the added benefit of repelling insects.

Another way to give your home a peaceful atmosphere is by utilizing traditionally seasonal oils with your scent diffuser machine. Cinnamon, ginger, clove, and even apple or pumpkin may make you think of autumn or the holidays, but they also add a layer of warmth and comfort to your home. Think about that approach at other times of the year, with floral scents in the spring and tropical oils for a vacation without leaving home.

For Sleep

Lavender has long been the gold standard of sleep-inducing essential oils, with chamomile and ylang-ylang a close second and third. Instead of reaching for those familiar scents, explore other soporific options such as jasmine, sage, or vanilla to lull you off to slumber. Even blending one of these oils or other trending scents, including rosemary and vetiver, with your regular choices can give you new options if you find your usual blends losing effectiveness.

Experiment with some of these trending essential oils in your scent diffuser machine to breathe life or tranquility in your home.
