Diffusers how to use them and clean them…

There are many brands and types of diffusers out there for essential oil use. One thing to remember when purchasing them is to look for ones made especially for Essential Oils. Humidifiers will heat the molecules of the oils and thus rendering them useless for the properties they possess also they type of plastic used matters as some plastics not made for EO’s can breakdown. I love my diffuser it is cute and small but does the job well in my living room I also have one for my bedroom to sleep at night.

 

Where to get them…

                I shop Amazon for mine they have many different kinds and prices to pick from choose what you like and go with it. You can also get them at a department store or a Whole Foods store. Shop around see what you are looking for and pick what fits your needs best.

 

 

 Cleaning…

                Once a week I clean my diffuser because I use mine daily. Each night I empty the unused water and let it air dry for the next day’s use then once a week I add vinegar and water and keep it in the diffuser over night rinse it well and wipe it clean with a paper towel. It is important to clean the diffuser so they don’t get clogged up and cannot work properly. 

Another way to diffuse is putting a couple drops on a cotton ball and place under your pillow to sleep or in a small glass bowl on the back of the toilet to deodorize a room. Another way I love to diffuse is with jewelry, I have a necklace I use and got from www.diffusingmamas.com it works with your body’s heat to diffuse the oils you place in it or you can smell the locket when you need it. I also like Lava Beads and make jewelry of my own to diffuse the oils I like check out my shop soon for some of this one of a kind jewelry that you can use for yourself.

 

Tips and tricks for diffusing:

  • Put 2-3 drops on a cotton ball of your favorite sent and place under your car seat to diffuse in your car.
  • Use a tissue and place 1-2 drops of orange for a little pick me up in the middle of the day and to uplift the spirits.
  • Place 2-3 drops of Lavender on the bottom side of your pillow for help sleeping at night.
