The best essential oils to diffuse in the New Year are the ones that’ll boost your spirits for all the excitement to come. And if these oils can help you relax or possibly benefit your health in the meantime, all the better.

If you’re new to diffusing essential oils, the most important thing to remember is that a little oil goes a long way. Essential oils are incredibly concentrated, so a super-tiny bottle can pack a big punch. Every essential oil diffuser has different limits on drop usage — so it’s important to read the instructions carefully before you test one out — but most of them require just a few drops to get the job done. And when we say “job,” we mean a lovely scent filling your house that could potentially help you feel better when you’re struck with the winter blues. Who could say no to that?

The New Year is the perfect time to hit the reset button and get a fresh start to eat a little healthier, sleep a little longer, and take more chances with style. So why not add the best essential oils for diffusing to your list of New Year’s resolutions? It’s bound to be one of the easiest changes you make to your home all year, not to mention one of the most pleasant. Even if you’re a seasoned essential-oil expert, it never hurts to add a new oil (or two!) to your growing collection. After all, we all want to kick off the New Year in a nice way, and we think an inviting, invigorating scent is the perfect beginning!
