Do you want to fill your home with the stunning aromas of essential oils? Do you enjoy an energizing, uplifting atmosphere in your workspace or a calm, restful environment at bedtime? No matter the ambiance, a diffuser makes any space feel like yours.

Where are you planning to put your diffuser?

doTERRA diffusers feature different runtimes and coverage. Some diffusers work great for large gathering areas or entryways, while others cover a smaller square footage in a potent, pleasing way. If you want to create a joyful atmosphere in your kitchen, for example, choose a diffuser that covers a larger area.

How long do you need your diffuser to run?

The ideal diffuser should run as long as you need it to. doTERRA diffuser runtimes can reach up to 14 hours! If you want to keep your spirits up with a citrusy diffuser blend during a part-time job, invest in a diffuser with a three- to five-hour runtime. A diffuser with a seven- to eight-hour runtime is ideal for overnight aromas like Lavender and doTERRA Serenity®. Meanwhile, 14-hour intermittent options can keep your kitchen smelling fresh all day.

Do you value portability, aesthetics, or both?

Some diffusers are portable. If you’re a home-based busybody who enjoys the clean aroma of Purify in every room or you think diffusing delicious aromas from a doTERRA centerpiece would be the perfect touch to your upcoming home party, consider a portable diffuser.


Alternatively, you can incorporate an aesthetically pleasing diffuser into your living room decor. The Roam® Diffuser gives you the best of both worlds: classy and portable!
