This $30 Addition Transforms My Home Into a Calming Oasis

From the blaring car horns outside my streetside window to noisy roommates, there are few things that can make my apartment feel like a serene atmosphere. I’ve accepted that city life will never quite feel calming, so I’ve adopted a few methods for creating a sanctuary in which I can recharge and breathe. Despite my attempts at using white-noise machines, burning candles, and collecting house plants, my mood these days is most easily lifted by the click of a button.

The VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser has secured a place at the table, my bedside table to be exact, transforming my room into a calming oasis with the scents of lavender and lemongrass. I’ve learned aromatherapy can be a powerful tool in relaxation, and I’ve managed to bring it into my home for just $30.

The diffuser can run for up to 10 hours, and includes the option for a subtle glow thanks to the ring of light around the base, shifting between seven different colors with either dim or bright mode. With two misting options and four timer settings, you can customize the diffuser to your preference, running for one hour, three hours, or even six hours at regular or strong diffusing levels. The BPA-free diffuser-humidifier hybrid will emit a beep to warn you the water level is almost depleted, before automatically turning off.

The wooden exterior adds a soft touch to any room, and you can choose between three color options — cream yellow, dark brown, or red brown (I opted for the cream yellow and love it). With over 9,000 five-star reviews, I’m not the only one who praises the durable little machine. It’s become a staple for when I’m working from home, and is the perfect helper just before bed when I need something to ease my mind.

Upgrade your apartment with the VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser and begin to feel the daily stressors of life melt away.
