The Best Oil Burners

Adding a few drops of aromatherapy can elevate your existing yoga practice or help you as you begin your yoga journey. Depending on the aromas you use, you can add a boost of serotonin or dopamine to your practice. Once you’ve selected the essential oil to supplement your yoga routine (citrus for energy, floral for relaxation, earthy scents for grounding), you just need a diffuser for releasing them. Diffusers are set up with a bowl for oil and water, as well as a space for a tea light to warm the water and release the scent. You want to pick a diffuser that blends in with your décor and is easy to light and to clean after use. These oil diffusers are great for doing a relaxing or grounding candlelight practice at home. See our top picks below.
