When shopping for the best essential oil diffusers, finding one that offers a ton of functionality is always useful. The ASAKUKI has so many different features that are wow-worthy — even more so because of the $25.99 price tag.

“The ASAKUKI diffuser’s ultrasonic technology means it disperses scent without heat, which can help maintain the integrity of the essential oils’ benefits and more efficient for aromatherapy purposes,” explains Roxie Lubanovic, fragrance expert and co-founder of Frostbeard Studio.

She continues, “From my experience, products that offer adjustable settings for mist output can cater to large rooms as well as more confined spaces, making them versatile additions to any home.”

Roxie adds that the humidifying function is particularly beneficial during dryer months, which can increase the comfort levels in your home. If you suffer from dry skin, the ASAKUKI diffuser could be a real game-changer.

This budget-friendly diffuser has over 42,000 five-star ratings, and it's easy to see why. It has a large 500ml water tank that's a breeze to clean, 7 LED light settings, and a helpful remote that can cycle through lighting and mist settings. It's also made from BPA free plastic, meaning it's safe for any pets or children you have in the home. We also love the Scandi-style design, which will fit seamlessly into any interior.

Why essential oil diffusers are useful buys

Wondering why an electric diffuser is a great choice? While similar to reed diffusers, these fill the space better and can helpfully be turned on or off.

“Using diffusers, particularly in a home setting, offers a continuous and consistent scent release which can help in creating a calm, inviting, and personalized space,” Roxie explains. “This is key in interior design, as the aroma is often considered the invisible part of a room’s ambiance."

If you’re looking for delicious essential oils to start off with, the Lagunamoon Essential Oil set from Amazon has six different scents, is made from plant-powered ingredients, and has 123,000 five-star reviews.

Roxie also says that, unlike the best candles, a diffuser like the ASAKUKI Essential Oil Diffuser can be left unattended and provides a safer alternative for scent diffusion over long periods, which is a big plus for busy households and a clear bonus for diffusers in the candles vs. diffusers debate.

“Incorporating elements like a quality diffuser not only improves the physical space but the overall sensory experience, which is fundamental in effective interior design,” Roxie finishes by saying.

Bringing in diffusers is also one of the key things people with nice-smelling small spaces always do. Our editor had great success resolving smells in her bathrooms with the battery-free Small Spaces air freshener.
