We quit using scented candles and air freshener sprays when the kids were little. At the time, I just didn’t want them spilling hot wax or spraying chemicals in their eyes. Now I know that essential oils are much safer than air freshener sprays, so we have a diffuser in nearly every room of our home.

These diffuser recipes will freshen the air in your home without chemicals, and can even support your family’s health.

If you’re shopping for a diffuser and aren’t sure what kind to buy, here’s information on the best essential oil diffusers and what to look for.
