It may seem like the strangest thing to some, but my favourite part of my house is my diffusers. The way they make me feel, the ambience they create for our guests and the scent they fill our home with is intoxicating.
I wanted to walk you through simply how to get your diffuser set up from the box, how I clean mine + some fave diffuser blends you can make with your starter kit.
SETTING UP YOUR DIFFUSER: THE BASICS
+ always remember to use clean, room temp to cool water in your diffuser. If you have reverse osmosis or filter water in your house, use that. It will prolong the life of your diffuser (we use RO and rarely even have to wash our diffusers out!)
+ plug your diffuser in + make sure the plug is connected to the diffuser itself (petal is at the back thank the gods, all other diffusers are on the bottom)
+ add 5-8 drops of essential oil. You are welcome to add more for a stronger scent or if you're filling a larger space, or less if the room is small. I usually experiment with my oils and have come to know what oils let off a stronger scent than others
+ avoid placing your diffuser in direct sunlight
CLEANING UP YOUR DIFFUSER
+ make sure to unplug your diffuser before cleaning (to save both you + the diffuser from a horrible death)
+ dump the water out of the back of the diffuser so we don't soak the buttons
+ wipe out the inside of the water tank with a paper towel or tissue
+ dump in some vinegar or rubbing alcohol, let it soak for a few minutes, dump + give it one last wipe
+ if you're finding the diffuser still has some extra residue, use a q-tip to wipe out the bottom part a bit more
