How to choose an essential oil diffuser for travel?
There are a few things to consider when choosing a travel diffuser:
Portability is the key aspect in making a decision to get this gadget. Although not the only aspect, it does meet the need of being able to move around with and diffuse essential oils when away from home.
This can be when you are staying at a friend’s across town, in a hotel or doing an Air BnB.

If you find one that can run on AC (alternating current) as well use standard sockets like those found in a hotel room, then all your diffusing problems are solved.
