Diffusing essential oils is one of the easiest ways to fill your home with a delicious scent and calming atmosphere. Whether you’re trying to boost your mood, enjoy the fall season, or try out some new brands, diffusing is a great way to introduce essential oils into your routine. 



But, with so many diffuser brands out there, you might find yourself overwhelmed with options or not ready to commit to the high price points. Here, we’ve broken down Amazon’s top-rated diffusers under $30.

ASAKUKI 500ml, Premium Essential Oil Diffuser

Cost: $23.99
Rating: 4.5/5

Like the VicTsing, this diffuser also has seven colored light options. The difference? This one lights up the entire thing. Our favorite part about this diffuser is that it doubles as a humidifier, so you can leave it on overnight to ease a cough, add moisture to dry skin, or reduce allergy symptoms.

The Essential Wellness Ultrasonic Diffuser

Cost: $29.99
Rating: 4.4/5
Total Ratings: 1,626

 

We love an all-white room, and this dainty little diffuser is the perfect addition. Its slender design makes it less bulky than others, and its lid locks to avoid spills (protect that white rug!). Add it to a sunlit room for a bright, welcoming feel, and turn on its colored lights in the evening to use it as a night light!

Goat Cheese Ball healthy recipe

Goat "Cheese" Ball

Recipes
Food

Did you know you can make mouth-watering “fake” cheese with macadamia nuts? Yes, macadamia nuts. If you’re craving that creamy consistency but your stomach isn’t down for dairy, try out this recipe inspired by Simple Vegan Blog

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of macadamia nuts (soaked overnight)
  • 1 1/2 lemon 
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp raw virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon pink Himalayan salt 
Directions
  • Place the macadamia nuts into a bowl and cover with water to soak for at least 7 hours. 
  • Drain and wash macadamia nuts before placing it in a high-speed blender (I use my refurbished Vitamix). 
  • Add lemon juice, garlic cloves, olive oil, water, and blend for about two minutes until extremely thick.
  • Slowly add in the lemon juice, followed by rosemary, salt, and any additional seasoning that you desire.
  • In a large bowl, lay out a cheesecloth that will hold the macadamia mixture. Make sure your cheesecloth is large enough to hold the entire mixture. It will be very thick, so scoop it from the blender into the cloth that is within the bowl.
  • Once in the cloth, in the bowl, wrap the mixture up in the cloth into a ball. With an elastic band, tie the top so the mixture is in a tight bowl. It should be a large softball size.
  • Squeeze out any extra liquid and place the cheese ball in the fridge for at least 14 hours(I left mine for about 24 hours, and it was perfect). 
  • When you are ready to bake this bad boy, preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  • Grease a baking pan with olive oil, well. Don’t make my mistakebe sure to put enough oil! 
  • Carefully unwrap the cheese ball from the cloth and shape into a perfect round ball.
  • Place on the very greased pan and bake for 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown. However, check it about halfway. You may need to turn down the oven for the final 20 minutes. If your cheese is cracking while golden brown, that is perfect! 

Once taken out of the oven, it’s ready to serve. It will be difficult to transfer – so if you can decorate the pan and serve directly on it with crackers and veggies that’s what I recommend.
