How To Use A Diffuser With Essential Oils

Are you looking to fill your home with pleasing natural scents, create a calming environment, or improve your overall wellbeing? A diffuser is a great way to maximize the benefits of essential oils. In this article, we'll dive into how to use a diffuser with essential oils effectively and safely, plus explore the benefits that come with it.

Choosing the Right Diffuser

Before you start using essential oils in your diffuser, it's important to select the right type of diffuser for your needs. There are four main types of diffusers:

  • Ultrasonic: These diffusers use water and high-frequency vibrations to create a fine mist that carries essential oils into the air. They also work as a humidifier, adding moisture to the room they're used in.
  • Nebulizing: Nebulizing diffusers release pure essential oils into the air by using pressurized air to break down the oils into tiny particles. They're highly efficient and require no heat or water.
  • Heat: These diffusers use gentle heat to evaporate essential oils, releasing their aroma into the air. They're silent and easy to use but may alter the chemical composition of the oils slightly due to the heat.
  • Evaporative: Evaporative diffusers use a fan to blow air across a pad or wick soaked in oils, evaporating them into the air. They're low-cost and easy to use but may not distribute the oils as evenly as other types.

Using a Diffuser with Essential Oils: Step-by-Step

To ensure an optimal diffusing experience, follow these steps for using a diffuser with essential oils:

  1. Choose your essential oil: Consider your desired outcome – relaxation, energy, focus, sleep – and choose an essential oil or blend to match. Oshu Oils offers a range of artisan essential oils expertly blended by our aromacologists.
  2. Preparation: Fill your diffuser's water tank with clean, room-temperature water (if using an ultrasonic diffuser). Check the manufacturer's instructions for the recommended water level.
  3. Add oils: Add your chosen essential oil(s) to the diffuser's water tank. A general guideline is 3-5 drops per 100ml of water.
  4. Place diffuser: Position your diffuser on a flat, stable surface in a well-ventilated area. Ideally, aim for the center of the room for even distribution of the aroma.
  5. Run your diffuser: Turn your diffuser on and enjoy the uplifting fragrance filling your space. Most diffusers run for intervals between 30-120 minutes; choose your preferred duration according to your needs.
  6. Clean regularly: After each use, empty and wipe out the water tank to prevent buildup. Deep clean your diffuser once a month for optimal performance.

Pro Tips for Diffusing Essential Oils

To get the most out of your diffuser, follow these expert tips:

  • Begin with shorter diffusing sessions (15-30 minutes) to see how your body responds to the oils. Gradually work your way up to longer sessions if desired.
  • Vary the oils you diffuse to avoid sensory adaptation and keep each experience fresh and effective.
  • Be mindful of others in your space; some people may be sensitive to certain oils or scents.
  • Keep your diffuser out of direct sunlight, as UV exposure may degrade the oils.
