One of the best parts of the fall and winter months is the holiday season and one aspect of this time of year that so many love is the signature scents. While plug-ins from brands like Glade and Air Wick are fine to use, they don’t last very long and, according to research, can actually be harmful to your health due to the synthetic fragrances they spread into the air.

Diffusers are the safest and most cost-effective way to emit natural fragrances and fragrance blends into the air. Pura gives you that easy plug-in functionality with the diffuser core.

Unlike standard plug-in devices that use synthetic fragrance cartridges, the Pura Smart Home Fragrance device diffuses 100% natural essential oils and oil blends like traditional diffusers. Also, it pairs with a well-designed companion app that lets you control all of its features from your smartphone and even set schedules for when you want it to come on.

Pura’s Cozy Best Seller Bundle is the perfect pick to make your home smell warm and cozy in the colder months. It comes with a Pura Smart Fragrance Diffuser and two scents (Coconut Calm by Becki Owens and Original Scent by Barr-Co.).

For most people, the colder months mean dry air, even drier skin and sniffle season. While using more hydrating skin care products that seal in moisture is an effective way to keep your skin plump during the fall and winter, this only works temporarily. The most effective way to keep the air moist and, in turn, your skin from drying out is by using a cool mist humidifier.

Vitruvi, known for its stunning stone diffusers, recently released its first-ever cool mist humidifier, arguably the most thoughtful design we’ve seen. It comes in three neutral colors, naturally hydrates the air to keep you from getting sick easily, and helps you maintain soft skin throughout the colder months.

What makes this one special, though, is its nightstand-friendly shape with slopes that allow you to place other objects close to it. It’s also whisper-quiet, has a 24-hour run time, is baby-safe, easy to clean and has an adjustable mist spout.

4. Bedsure Heated Electric Throw Blanket, $39.99

If you live in a city that gets particularly cold during the fall and winter, sometimes your standard throw blanket just doesn’t provide enough warmth to keep you comfortable.

Most folks invest in a high-quality heated blanket to ensure this is never an issue. The affordable Bedsure Heated Electric Throw Blanket is a customer-favorite option on Amazon. It’s extremely soft and chic and comes with an LED controller with six heat levels and four timer settings. Also, this one comes in five sizes (throw, full, queen, king and twin), so there’s a size for every height!
