Whether you’re a homebody looking to make your place comfy and cosy, an entertainer out there to wow your guests or yearning to amp up those zen vibes for your morning meditation, you’ll want to consider an essential oil or fragrance diffuser.

While it’ll definitely make your place smell great, a diffuser can do more than just freshen up your room, apartment or house. Typically, diffusers will also help humidify dry air in your home which might be just what you need as we get into the cooler months. While you’re at it, you might want to nab yourself an air purifier to maintain optimal air quality all year round.

We’ve handpicked some of the best diffusers you can snag in Australia to help give your home that little extra ‘oomph’. Happy shopping!

Best essential oil diffuser overall

ASAKUKI 500ml Essential Oil Diffuser

  • Brand: ASAKUKI
  • Price: $43.99
  • Capacity: 500ml
  • Timer: Up to three hours

Our number one pick is decently large in water tank capacity, so it can continue to diffuse a pleasant mist throughout your home for up to 16 hours. Once you reach the upper limit, the unit will automatically switch itself off to protect against overheating.

With a continuous mode as well as a one, two and three-hour countdown timer, you’ll be able to control how long you keep your diffuser on for.

Plus, it makes an attractive feature in any home with three colours to choose from and seven different LED light colours to suit your vibe.


Best smart home aroma diffuser

GX Diffuser Smart Wi-Fi Essential Oil Diffuser

  • Brand: GX Diffuser
  • Price: $59.99
  • Capacity: 300ml
  • Timer: Up to six hours

Finding a smart home diffuser that’s compatible with both Alexa and Google Home isn’t as easy to find as you might think. You can choose to control your device via the smartphone app or by voice using the smart assistant of your choice.

Imagine saying “Hey Alexa, turn off the diffuser in 2 hours” and not have to worry about forgetting to do that later. What an #adulting fix.

GX Diffuser

Best large aromatherapy diffuser

GX Diffuser 1L Aromatherapy Essential Oil Table

  • Brand: GX Diffuser
  • Price: $148.20
  • Capacity: 1L
  • Timer: N/A

An essential oil diffuser that doubles as a bedside table? Don’t mind if we do. This unique unit can hold a whole litre of water and oils, enough to keep those beautiful smells swirling for up to 33 hours continuously - perfect for those who like their diffuser going all day long.

Unfortunately, this model doesn’t have a timer, but we reckon its chic, minimalistic look, three mist modes and multiple LED light colours just about make up for the lack of a timer.

Best budget essential oil diffuser

Anko by Kmart Aroma Diffuser with Wood Base

  • Brand: Anko by Kmart
  • Price: $24.10
  • Capacity: 100ml
  • Timer: N/A

If you’re looking for a cheap solution that looks good and will get the job done, Kmart has you covered. At just $20, this stylish wood-based diffuser may be small at just 100ml capacity, but that’ll keep you going up to six hours, which is impressive for this lil guy. There’s also a misting mode and seven LED light colour options to suit your style.

Best quiet aroma diffuser

ASAKUKI 400ml Premium Essential Oil Diffuser

  • Brand: ASAKUKI
  • Price: $39.99
  • Capacity: 400ml
  • Timer: Up to six hours

Another winner by ASAKUKI, the model claims to be ultrasonic quiet at both its mist nebuliser levels.

You’ll be able to keep your diffuser on throughout your daily meditation routine, study session or dinner party without worrying about any unpleasant noise disturbances.

It also offers 7 different LED light colours that can each be set to dim/bright mode and constant/rotating in colour.


Best multifunction aromatherapy diffuser

Anko by Kmart Aroma Diffuser with Bluetooth Speaker

  • Brand: Anko by Kmart
  • Price: $55
  • Capacity: 300ml
  • Timer: Up to five hours

Kmart’s done it again with this awesome multi-use essential oil diffuser. Not only can it keep your room humidified and smelling fabulous for up to 10 hours, but it also functions as a Bluetooth speaker and alarm clock, displaying the time on its stylish wood-look base.

With a misting mode and seven LED light colours to choose from, it’s perfect as a bedside clock or as an all-in-one companion to your yoga practise or meditation. Plus, it looks damn good.

Best stylish essential oil diffuser

Naeo Carma Aroma Ultrasonic Diffuser

  • Brand: Naeo
  • Price: $49.99
  • Capacity: 230ml
  • Timer: Up to two hours

Essential oil diffusers are great, but let’s face it - some of them aren’t exactly the prettiest things to have lying around the house. The Naeo Carma, on the other hand, is something you’ll actually want people to see, because it’s downright gorgeous.

With a marble-look glass cover and subtle single-colour light, it makes the perfect addition to any household. Its capacity is on the smaller side at 120ml, however, it’s got three mist modes, a timer, and automatic safety shut-off when it runs out of water. Win, win, win!


Best portable aroma diffuser

ECO. Aroma Mini Mist Handheld Diffuser

  • Brand: ECO.
  • Price: $32.50
  • Capacity: 15ml
  • Battery life: Up to 45 minutes

Need a little refresher every now and then while you’re out and about? Australian company ECO. has just the solution - their mini mist handheld diffuser. This cute little unit is around the same size as a lipstick, but can circulate scent for up to 45 minutes on a single charge. It comes with its own USB charging cable and makes the perfect companion on commutes or even while shopping.
