Mothers India Fragrance for non-sickly incense. Sattva and Amrita are good starts.

Then St Eval for candles - bay and rosemary is the one of most natural smelling that’s pretty strong.

Also palo santo sticks.

All good prices for the quality imo

Are electric oil diffusers a bad idea then? I was thinking you could put it on a timer and have a good hassle free solution.

Stick a Teckin smart plug on one. Can schedule or operate it from anywhere.

Can anyone recommend some decent oils for the muji diffuser type things. I’ve been mostly using the Aesop ones the last few years which I love but am thinking of trying something new. I tried some standard ones from Amazon but they smelt really artificial and just weren’t so good. Sainsbury’s had great ones in the Uk but I can’t go there now so looking for some suggestions ! Thanks!

The few decent essential oils around are the miaroma range from Holland and Barrett, Neals Yard and if you can afford - Doterra (which are more for medicinal purposes and not recommended for diffusing). I wouldn't buy any other brand after trying some of those cheap online ones which smell so artifical.

Not tried neals yard, but sniffed a few of them and they are legit.

I use the miaroma ones for my oil burner and making creams. Standouts include - clary sage, ylang ylang, lavender, juniper, spearmint, peppermint and bergamot
