Most of us know humidifiers as those loud, bulky machines our parents put in our bedroom when we had a cough. Fortunately, they’ve come a long way and serve many more purposes than soothing a dry cough. Quieter hums for that soothing white noise, sustainable filters, moist air for dewy skin … what more could you ask for? We rounded up our Poosh-approved faves so you can take your pick.
LEVOIT 4L Large Room Humidifier + Diffuser
If aromatherapy is what you’re into, this stylish little contraption by Rio Zooey is the go-to. It’s a diffuser but doubles as a humidifier to moisten the air while releasing your soothing natural scent of choice to calm adrenals. It’s small, so it’s best for small spaces or your bedside, and you can opt out of the essential oils if you want to use it just for moisture in the air.
PURE ENRICHMENT HUME Sense Top-Fill Humidifier
If you don’t want to lug around a large contraption and flip it upside down to fill it, this small top-fill humidifier by Pure Enrichment is perfect. It lasts for 30 hours, so you can keep any room moist for quick recovery and hydration.
CANOPY Humidifier Starter Set
This chic machine by Canopy comes in a few calming colors to choose from instead of just black or white. It’s easy to clean and even dishwasher-safe, and you can purchase replaceable paper filters so you don’t have to worry about mold buildup contaminating your air. There is even a scent option, without actually diffusing essential oils into the air along with the mist. A small clay disc sets atop a perfect little perch on the machine to soak up a few drops of either your favorite essential oils, or one of their custom home fragrances for hydrating humidity, plus a vibe.

Soothe a cough, cold, or flu, or just keep the room subtropical with this ultra-quiet, space-saving humidifier. Turn on the mood light for a sexy party vibe.
For longest-lasting moisture
Air Innovations Humidifier
When the air where you live is dry, dry, dry and the AC is cranking all season long (hello LA and all surrounding valleys) you need a large tank. This baby can add moisture to a large living space or bedroom (up to 600 square feet) and with an almost 6.5 liter tank, it lasts close to 100 hours. That means you can have it running day and night, and only need to refill less than once per week. The nozzle rotates, so you can be sure both your skin, and all your luscious indoor plants are supple and hydrated no matter what the weather is doing outside.
