How does an oil diffuser work?
At the most basic level, essential oil diffusers work by dispersing essential oils into the air to be inhaled and easily absorbed by the body.
As an added benefit, most essential oils also emit a pleasant scent into the air when distributed via diffuser, also purifying the air – killing bacteria and fungus.
How do you diffuse oil?
Try adding a few drops of essential oil to your palms and cup them over your nose while you inhale deeply. This is an easy technique especially when you’re on the go. Or, add some drops of oil to a glass spray-bottle with water and spritz around the room. The combinations of essential oils you can diffuse are endless.
How much oil do you put in a diffuser?
Car diffusers – 2 drops – diffuser no longer than 20 minutes every 3-4 hours. Unplug the unit after 20 minutes. Ultrasonic Misting Diffuser – 5-10 drops – this unit runs until the water is gone. You use 5-10 drops each water fill.
Do you put water in a diffuser?
The instructions included in many of today’s essential oil diffusers recommend that you use tap water in your diffuser because it includes natural minerals that help the water diffuse into a vapor better than distilled water. Greenair says that warm tap water is what they prefer you use in Greenair diffusers.
