Lava Rock Diffusers That Don’t Need Water or Electricity


Lava Rock Diffusers are an excellent way to enjoy aromatherapy without water!

The diffusers I’m featuring today are perfect for areas where you don’t have a plug or want to use water, like a desk. From ready-made to DIY, there are tons of options out there that make it easy to add essential oils to your day without needing a bulky, traditional diffuser.

While Shower Diffusers let me enjoy my oils as I kick off my day, this diffuser is what I use to make my bathrooms smell better and in my kid’s rooms.

I am a huge fan of aromatherapy and use it just about every day. But not all diffusers are created equal.

I have different types that I use around the house. Lava Rock Diffusers are great for areas that don’t have electricity, like in my entryway. I can diffuse scents easily for people to smell as they enter my home.

What is a Lava Rock Diffuser?

A Lava Rock Diffuser is made up of porous stones or rocks and doesn’t require electricity or water.

With this type of diffuser, there is no worry of spilling water all over as I often do with my regular diffuser.

They come in all shapes and sizes so you can find one that is ideal for the area you’re working with.

They are great for when you want your home (or person) to smell great but don’t want to use a room spray.

How Do Lava Rock Diffusers Work?

Lava stones have a porous surface. This means they have little cavities in the surface that hold or absorb the essential oils.

Lava Rock Diffusers work differently than the type you plug in and fill with water.

These are much more rustic and work by simply placing a few drops of essential oils onto the stone.

Because of this simplicity and the size and shape of the stones, you can use lava rocks in all kinds of ways.

Lava Rock Diffusers on Amazon

If you’re like me, you love to shop on Amazon! When I want to create a new Lava Stone Diffuser, I usually just buy lava rocks and put them in a dish.

While I usually look for a small bowl that fits my style and taste, Amazon has several options that you can buy together so you can start using your oils in no time!

How to Clean a Lava Rock Diffuser

Always store your lava rock diffuser in a dry environment. This prevents oxidation and other harmful contaminants to get into rocks.

The best way to clean a lava rock diffuser is to dip your lava stones in hot water. Repeat this process several times until the essential oils build up starts to loosen.

I highly suggest you refrain from using any soap as it can contaminate the lava rock, reducing the impact of future aromatherapy sessions.

Don’t leave your lava rocks to soak in water. Dry them out on a towel before using them with your oils.
