The best type of oil diffuser made from glass is an essential oil nebulizer. It gives you a more pure delivery of aromatherapy oils.
A nebulizing glass essential oil diffuser uses pure essential oil without adding any water. Most glass nebulizers use a glass bulb on top which sits on a wooden or ceramic base. The black base on the nebulizer on the right is ceramic and the top is made from individually hand-blown glass.
What are the Advantages of Using a Glass Essential Oil Nebulizer?
- No dilution – if you’ve ever smelt one of your favorite essential oils in the glass bottle it came in and then smelt it once it was diffused after adding water, you may have noticed that it smells slightly different. I have noticed this myself. When you use a glass essential oil nebulizer the scent in your room is closer to the original pure smell.
- No moldy smell – some people notice that when using an ultrasonic diffuser that requires water, it starts to smell moldy or stale after a few weeks or months. I think this tends to happen if you don’t wipe it out and clean it after use. I’ve never heard any complaints about this happening with a glass nebulizer for essential oils.
- No plastic – with a glass diffuser there are no plastics to break down over time and pollute our environment and body. If you’re trying to avoid plastic in your own living or working environment then a glass essential oil nebulizer is perfect.
- Can use strong oils – if you like to use citrus essential oils (I personally love sweet orange essential oil) then you may have noticed that many ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers warn against using strong oils like citrus in them. With a glass essential oil diffuser you don’t have this problem.
- Like a sculpture – another advantage of using a glass essential oil nebulizer is that they are very attractive to place in your home or office. The combination of glass with wood or ceramic is very beautiful and often looks more like a work of art than a diffuser. There are different designs to suit modern or traditional decor. Whether you want to use one in your yoga studio, your living room, bedroom or workplace, there’s one to suit everyone.
What is the Best Glass Essential Oil Diffuser?
A nebulizing essential oil diffuser made from glass is the best, but it is also expensive. Nebulizers can be double or triple the cost of an ultrasonic plastic diffuser. But if you’re looking for a good plastic free essential oil diffuser then this is the type for you.
Although the price can be a deterrent, you are actually getting a much higher quality product. Let’s face it, the glass and wood or ceramic nebulizers are going to cost more to produce than a plastic diffuser.
For this reason alone you shouldn’t be upset about the cost being more.
If you really can’t afford a glass nebulizer for your aromatherapy then start with an ultrasonic diffuser and be sure to add the required amount of water.
Also be sure to clean it out afterwards according to the manufacturers instructions, especially if you’re using a stronger oil or citrus, so it keeps working.
Another alternative, if a glass nebulizer is beyond your budget, is to use a glass bottle with reeds. This can look beautiful in a room. The scent will take longer to disperse but at least you’re using glass for your oils.
If you want to use your essential oils in glass there are cheaper ways to do it but ultimately you’ll probably want to buy a glass essential oils nebulizer, especially if you want to use aromatherapy in a large room or open-plan house.

A lot of people prefer this design as the best glass essential oil diffuser because it looks less fragile and looks better weighted at the base to make it less likely to topple over.
