I have been asked many times by people about my essential oil diffuser and how it works and how I use mine. Well, here is how it works and how I prefer to use mine.
I cannot tell you about others only my own, because it's the type I'm most well versed with. It's a Young Living Ultrasonic Diffuser. It multi-functions as a humidifier, atomizer, air purifier and aroma diffuser.
I only use distilled water in mine to prevnt mineral buildup where it comes into contact with the water. I pour water in, up to the fill-line and avoid tipping it.
It takes a only a few drops of essential oil for it to work efficiently in my home. I prefer to set mine on a plant stand which holds it about three feet off the floor. If I use it in my bedroom I place it on the top corner of my wooden canopy-bed and leave a small fan running on the other side of my room to help circulate the air. I tend to use the intermediate setting on mine that way it lasts all day or most of the night. It's also nearly-noiseless so it doesn't disturb even light sleepers.
Which oil I use in mine depends on what I am needing--an air purifier, mood lifter, study time or sleep and relaxation time. Sometimes I have need of using the diffuser for more than one purpose. it’s more than one of these.
Two-and-a-half-million times per second, ultrasonic frequency waves are generated, causing the release and dispersal of the essential oil of my choice into the air in my home. The oils I use contain natural, broad-spectrum antimicrobials as well as cause positive, health sustaining and healing reactions in people and animals.
Mine has a soft light at the top of the unit that I love, although sometimes I switch it to the off position while it's working.
It keeps the air moist in the colder, drier months, which helps my skin to stay more moisturized and helps keep my sensitive respiratory system healthy and working efficiently.
Easily cared for
Cleaning is simple.
The diffuser's kit comes with a sponge on a stick. I just dip it in alcohol and rub it on the little metal plate in the bottom of diffuser. The lid gets cleaned with mild soap. I'm careful, when emptying the water to unplug the cord from the back of the diffuser and out the water in a direction that keeps it away from the front controls.
Also, I want to share a new music vid I discovered by one of my favorite music artists, Lindsey Stirling. This featured instrumental is beautiful, captivating and stirring.
Well, I hope you found this interesting and perhaps you'll consider investing in a diffuser for your own use at home, work or wherever. My household seldom suffers from colds or the flu,and I believe my consistent use of essential oils thru a diffuser is largely responsible for that.
Best regards for a beautiful Memorial Day holiday and my thanks to our troops and their loved ones, past and present, who have sacrificed so much for us and many others around the world.
Thank you for the read and God bless!
