Information on Essential Oils

Diffuser Care

Our diffusers need care too…since they work so hard taking care of us!

Regardless of the type of diffuser you have, learning how to clean your diffuser is important to ensure its longevity. If left for too long, essential oils or any leftover water can corrode and ruin your unit, and can also negatively affect your aromatic experience when there’s an array of essential oil residue in the diffuser.

  1. We also recommend that you deep clean your diffusers once a month or as needed. Do so by following these steps based on the type of diffuser you have

  2. To keep your diffuser in perfect running condition for years to come, clean your diffuser after each use by wiping it out and letting it dry before using it again. For a quick clean, it is a good idea to diffuse Lemon oil for a short time. This makes it easier to clean out any residue or water lines before you wipe it out. For diffusers that do not use water, make sure to rinse out the nozzle with tap water and then wipe it clean.

  3. We also recommend that you deep clean your diffusers once a month or as needed. Do so by following these steps based on the type of diffuser you have: How to Deep-Clean an Ultrasonic Diffuser:

  4. Turn off your diffuser.

  5. Fill the water reservoir halfway to the line with clean water.

  6. Add 10 drops of pure white vinegar to the water reservoir. Turn it on and let run for 3-5 minutes, allowing the vinegar to disperse throughout.

  7. Drain the water reservoir completely. Dip a cotton swab in white vinegar and wipe down the edges of the water reservoir as well as the ultrasonic mist chip.

  8. Rinse the water reservoir with clean water. Wipe the reservoir with a dry cloth and let air dry before using it again. Wipe clean with a dry cloth.Keeping a clean diffuser allows for the best possible experience in using your essential oils aromatically.

Power to the Flowers! Floral essential oils offer a bouquet of health and beauty benefits from balancing moods to improving the appearance of your skin. Floral essential oils are often used in perfumes to create a calming and uplifting atmosphere. Pick your flowers and create a beautiful experience.

CLARY SAGE – nicknamed “clear eyes” perfect for vision and clarity. Clary sage is known for balancing feminine support and has a musky, pungent scent. Clary Sage encourages individuals to remain open to new ideas and new perspectives. Try applying 1-2 drops across your forehead before creating your vision board or apply 2-3 drops over your abdomen during your menstrual cycle.

GERANIUM – with a similar scent to rose this essential oil is gentle, soothing and uplifting and promotes calm feelings. Geranium emotionally supports the heart, instills unconditional love and fosters trust. Combine 3-4 drops with Fractionated Coconut Oil for a sensual massage with your partner.

JASMINE – has an intoxicating, erotic scent. Jasime also is known as “Yasmin”, which means “gift from the god” and can be used as an aphrodisiac which inspires confidence and self-acceptance. Add 3-4 drops to a nice hot soak.

LAVENDER – is a well-loved floral oil that is commonly used to promote a sense of balance, relaxation, sleep, and calm feelings of anxiousness. Emotionally, Lavender aids verbal expression, calming the mind and encourages emotional honesty for speaking one’s truth. Add a few drops of lavender to your pillows, bedding or diffuser for a restful nights sleep

MAGNOLIA – has a beautiful, sweet scent but don’t let the sweet smell fool you. While seeming innocent, Magnolia offers courage and strength when you need it. Emotionally, Magnolia offers compassion for life’s lessons while reminding us to live in harmony and love.
