how to scent a room with essential oils

Without adding artificial fragrances or hazardous chemicals to your home, essential oils are an excellent natural method to smell a place. Diffusing essential oils can be done in a variety of ways, including many do-it-yourself techniques. 

We’ve picked together different methods to use Young Living essential oils to smell a room:

Reed Diffusers 

Tiny channels abound in reeds, absorbing oils that, when they reach the end of the reed, are released into the air. Reed diffusers can be positioned anywhere in your home where they won’t be knocked over because they don’t need electricity to function. Since they don’t need to be constantly watched over, they can also be left to disperse oils around the clock. 

Power Diffusers 

Electric diffusers warm the oil and disseminate it into the air using the heat produced by electricity. There are many different styles and dimensions of electric diffusers, ranging from bigger tabletop units that connect to power outlets and smaller diffusers that interface with USB ports.

Diffuser for candles 

Though in a somewhat different method, candle diffusers also use heat to disseminate essential oils. Pour a few drops of oil and some water into the top dish of a candlelight diffuser to utilize it. Light the candle underneath the dish to allow the flame’s heat to warm the water-oil combination and spread it throughout the air. Typically, candle diffusers are constructed of ceramic, glass, and or similar materials. They need to be continually checked for safety because they work with open flames.

Ultrasonic Diffusers 

The original structure of essential oils can be destroyed by heating or burning them, therefore heat isn’t the only technique to spread them. Ultrasonic aroma diffusers use sonic waves rather than heat to vaporize the liquid and essential oils. You can observe the essential oils disperse as they are then discharged as strands of mist.

Room Sprays And Mists 

A room spray is arguably the easiest way to use essential oils to smell a space. These room mists blend water and oil and are sprayed all over the space. The fragrance won’t smell as powerful or last as long as some of the other techniques on this list even though this technique doesn’t require any equipment other than a spray container, electricity, or heat. This is because spritzing essential oils into the air without first atomizing them weakens the fragrance.


Due to its great absorbency, unfinished wood also makes an excellent diffuser. Just be certain that it is unpolished and not just painted or lacquered clear. For a quick and simple DIY diffuser, many people like to apply a few drops of oil to clothespins before attaching them to items around the house. The same can be done with wooden ornaments, which can then be hung up as air fresheners.

Baking Soda

Due to its incredible absorbency, baking soda is a fantastic material for a homemade diffuser. Put some baking soda and a few drops of essential oil in a beautiful dish on a table or counter. Baking soda can also be sprinkled on carpet or furniture, then vacuumed away after a few hours. The calming aromas of your essential oils will remain after the baking soda absorbs grime and pollutants. 


There are several common home items, like tissue boxes and toilet paper rolls, that can be used as diffusers. Add a few droplets of Young Living essential oil around the inside of the roll of toilet paper or napkin box since the thin board will rapidly soak the oils.

There is a great diffuser out there to meet your demands and budget, whether you want to manufacture or purchase one. When choosing how to use essential oil humidifiers and essential oils to perfume a place, keep these alternatives in mind.
