We report a new type of restoration of macroscopic isotropy (homogenization) in fractals with microscopic anisotropy. The phenomenon is observed in various physical setups, including diffusion, random walks, resistor networks, and Gaussian field theories. The mechanism is unique in that it is absent in uniform media, while universal in that it is observed in a wide class of fractals.
