Might I also suggest diffusing these deliciously cozy essential oil diffuser recipes while you lounge in your pajamas, eat as many s’mores roasted over the fire as you please (or fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies – both are top choices!), or watch a classic movie trilogy… aka nap time.

Why use essential oil blends in the diffuser?
It’s always nice to add a touch of luxury and relaxation into our lives, and one way that’s become easier is through essential oils.
These nature-derived oils can be used in a variety of ways; if you’re heading out on vacation, for example, you can create your own calming blend in advance by mixing together your favorite essential oils.
A common way to use these essential oils blends is in a diffuser to bring these aromatherapy benefits into your space. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, aromatherapy is particularly helpful when it comes to improving mood and sleep or bringing on feelings of relaxation or increased energy. There are several types of diffusers available, but the most common and affordable type of diffuser is ultrasonic, which uses vibrations to turn water molecules and the essential oil into a fine, cool mist. The cool mist diffusion process preserves the therapeutic benefits of the essential oils since they shouldn’t be heated.
When it comes to choosing an essential oil diffuser, there are several factors you’ll want to consider. If your cabin has a modern aesthetic, for example, something like a Vitruvi Stone Diffuser would look nice in your bedroom or living room. If you have pets or small children, ZAQ Sky LiteMist Kids Diffuser is probably a better choice. If you’re looking for something more portable, this Mini USB Essential Oil Diffuser is a great option. But what about when it comes time to actually create your own aromatherapy blend?

The 8 Best Essential Oil Diffusers for 2022
Cabin life is great, but no matter where you are, indoor air can get stale. Diffusing essential oil blends such as Spruce, Cedarwood and Eucalyptus is a great way to kick off that warm and woodsy feeling. You can also use these aromatherapy scents of essential oils to mask less-than-desirable odors like cooking grease or pets that haven’t quite been kept in check. These fragrances will make your stay fresh and keep you from getting cabin fever.
With its compact design and over 100,000 ratings, it’s no wonder that it’s Amazon’s Best Selling Essential Oil Diffuser. I am drawn to the wood look for decor and with a 100ml tank, it can run for about 6 hours. Another wood-look alternative at just a couple dollars more is the InnoGear Ultrasonic 200ml Diffuser, with two adjustable misting modes, four timer modes, and seven color-changing mood lights.
The Asakuki Smart Wi-Fi is equipped with a large water tank making it a great choice for large spaces. Its compatibility with Amazon Alexa makes controlling the device, like setting up sleep timers, adjusting the lighting, and controlling the mist mode an easy and remote task!
Available in six hues, including white, matte black, terracotta, and charcoal, the ceramic stone cover of the Vitruvi is aesthetically pleasing, splurge-worthy, and easy to use.
Because of its compact size, this diffuser is the perfect size for stashing in the car or packing in your overnight bag. Taking a work-cation? Leave it on your cabin desktop! Even with its size, this diffuser can continuously mist for about six hours.
Ready for your road trip to the cabin? Take your aromatherapy benefits on the go with this tiny, plug-in device. The 50-ml tank runs for about two hours and plugs into the 12V auxiliary power outlet, the perfect self-care road trip companion.
An all-in-one mini-humidifier, ionizer, diffuser, and night light to help rid the air of germs, dust and odors. I’m a big fan of the 30-minute sleep timer for the kids’ rooms. This timer gently dims the start sky in 5 stages over the 30-minute span. It also has a warm night light mode for those who prefer a little light while they sleep.
Want to add a little color to your decor? With four colorful options, this 500ml essential oil diffuser can run for 20 hours and makes a definite statement with its modern design. A quiet ultrasonic diffuser with noise reduction technology.
More ways to use essential oil blends in your cabin:
Some other ways you can use essential oils while on vacation include adding them to your bath water for a luxurious soak, rubbing them on the skin for a quick energy boost, or spritzing them into an area where they won’t be breathed in (like an entryway) to create an inviting scent. We always recommend diluting any oils before using them topically, avoiding “hot” oils like cinnamon and peppermint on the skin, and testing any oils you do use on small areas of skin first if they aren’t already diluted!
