If you’re like me, you LOVE using your Young Living diffuser. But, there is a slight learning curve, so here are some tips I’ve picked up over the past few months.
Home Diffuser combines the multifunctional benefits of a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy diffuser into one easy-to-use product. Its ultrasonic technology breaks the mixture of essential oils and water into millions of micro-particles and disperses it into the air, activating the powerful plant constituents found in Young Living essential oils.
The Home Diffuser can be used to:
• Transform your surroundings: The ultrasonic frequency generates waves at 2.5 million times per second, releasing essential oil molecules into the air to help create a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere in your home or office.
• Eliminate odors: The ultrasonic technology gently disperses essential oils throughout a space, removing lingering smells without resorting to synthetic air fresheners.
• Protect your family’s health: The Home Diffuser safeguards your family’s health by replacing harmful household chemicals with effective, all-natural essential oils.
• Humidity: The Home Diffuser’s constant, humidified air helps keep your skin moisturized and feeling fresh.
First off, if you read the Instruction Manual, and believe it or not, I actually did! It recommends that you use distilled water when diffusing. That’s because regular water can leave a mineral residue, which can eventually interfere with its functionality.
So, let’s add our water. Next, you want to add your oils. A couple tips. You can add a single essential oil combined with an oil blend. Think about which scents would go nicely together. I like Joy with Lemon and Valor with Lavender. Spearmint and Orange. The combinations are endless! But, it’s not recommended that you mix 2 oil blends together because there are too many essential oils going on and can result in some funky smells and reactions.
Now, the manual says to add 8-12 drops of Young Living oil to your diffuser. Let me just tell you that is a lot of oil and very strong. When I first got my diffuser, I added 12 drops of Joy and diffused in a small room. After about 5 minutes, my eyes were stinging and my throat was getting scratchy. Definitely too much! In my experience and with talking with lots of people who use Young Living oils regularly, 4-6 drops is plenty. Some like to use even less than that. Play with the amount of oil you use and find what works best for you.
Also, if you’re anything like me, you like to diffuse one oil in the morning, like Lemon or Awaken and different ones in the afternoon. If that’s the case, you might want to fill your diffuser only halfway and add just a few drops of your morning oil. That way you’ll go through all of the water and oil your diffuser and you can start fresh in the afternoon without wasting any oils. If you fill your diffuser, make sure your water doesn’t go over the line. The diffuser will run about 2 1/2 hours when totally full and about half that time if you fill halfway.
When the water runs out, your diffuser will automatically shut off. This is great if you want to run at night as you fall asleep.
I like to clean my diffuser weekly. That’s because essential oil begins to build up on the silver ultrasonic plate. To clean it, you need to gently wipe it off using the included cleaning sponge or Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. To clean the lid, gently use a mild soap like Bronner’s with water. Do not use aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives to clean the diffuser.
When removing excess water from the reservoir, pour from the rear of the diffuser to avoid spilling on the operating buttons or getting water in the internal air inlets. If water leaks into the air inlets, it will spill out through the bottom of the diffuser.
