12 Non-Ugly Essential Oil Diffusers

I’ve used essential oils for a variety of things over the past few years, namely in an attempt to treat my barometric migraines. But this past Christmas I was gifted an ultrasonic diffuser (the first one below) and an entirely new world opened up to me. Diffusing essential oils is great for a couple of things – alleviating allergies, asthma, and sinusitis to start, as well as cleaning and treating the air. With five pets I’m also super conscious about how my home smells when you walk in the door, and a single diffuser can treat up to 1,200 square feet. A lot of diffusers are flat-out ugly, but when you find a good one that suits your home’s aesthetic it will blend in perfectly. And as I experiment with new essential oil “recipes” over the coming weeks – energizing, focusing, relaxing, etc – I’ll be making notes so I can share in an upcoming post. Any longtime users with tips or tricks to share?

Quiet Town

 

Quilted and color-blocked canvas shower curtains made in Brooklyn and naturally water resistant. Hand-woven, hand-dyed cotton kilim bath rugs constructed in India. Custom, local dye jobs that allow risks to be taken and lower our environmental impact. I can’t find one thing not to like about Quiet Town‘s collection of bath textiles.

Do-It-All Baskets

As someone who likes to keep relatively organized, I’m a basket lover by nature. In the living room they organize extra blankets and pet toys, in the bedroom shoes and laundry, and in the pantry recycling and dog kibble. I have them stored under sinks corralling cleaning products and beauty products, as well as in my office full of craft supplies. A good basket is versatile, sturdy, and easy on the eyes and here are thirteen I’ve got a crush on.
