I think of diffusers as the little black leggings of the homewares “wardrobe”: It seems non-essential until you find one (or 10) that you really love, and then you’re hopelessly hooked. Since August, I have purchased two diffusers, which I—no joke—turn on at the same time on opposite ends of my apartment to feel the full transformative power of aromatherapy, which is exactly what every tense holiday family dinner needs.

But as someone who very much cares about packaging and aesthetics, the functionality of the product means next to nothing to me if it doesn’t also appeal to me visually. Since it seems everyone and their aromatherapist is making beautiful diffusers that will heal you as well as add to your home decor, you might want to invest in one of the therapeutic gems in time for the holiday season. Pro tip: Stock up on lavender (for its sleep-enhancing properties) to literally diffuse the situation when your great uncle insists on talking politics.

Just remember to keep your face away from the vapor—it can lead to severe burns if you get too close.

Take a look at 9 diffuser picks to bring a “serenity now” vibe to your home.
