You know when you walk into a spa and immediately feel at peace? It's not just the knowledge that you're about to receive a blissful two-hour massage or the idea that you can disconnect for an afternoon—it's the soothing scent that most spas are enveloped in: eucalyptus, lavender, basil, bergamot. And while it's not always easy (or affordable) to make it to the spa on a regular basis, it's possible to re-create the same relaxing vibes at home. All you need is a scent diffuser.

Whether it uses ultrasonic or nebulizer technology or the simple power of a small candle, scent diffusers can envelop your entire home in the smell of essential oils that can help you relax, get energized, focus, or sleep. If you're convinced that you need this small luxury in your life, we rounded up the best scent diffusers on the market. Just fill them with water (or a candle), add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, and you'll be on your way to creating a blissful tranquil home. 

Here, the best scent diffusers for instant relaxation.
