how to diffuse essential oils

There are all kinds of essential oil diffusers. However, cold water ultrasonic diffusion is considered safe and effective. 

Ultrasonic diffusers come in different sizes, and it’s best to follow the manufacturer’s directions.

As a general rule though, you can use the following:

  • 100ml diffuser use 3 to 5 drops of essential oils. 
  • 150ml diffuser use 8 to10 drops. 
  • 500ml diffuser – requires about 15 to 20 drops. 

 

how long you should diffuse for 

You don’t need to diffuse essential oils all day long. They are powerful, and you don’t want to overpower a room either. 

It’s recommended that you diffuse essential oils for an hour and turn your diffuser off for an hour. 

Make sure you have proper ventilation in the room too. 

health notes 

Do not consume essential oils. And if you suffer from allergies, chronicillness, you are pregnant, or you take drug-interactive medications, please check with your health practitioner before using essential oils. 

Protect Essential oils can be toxic to animals. Please check with your vet before using essential oils near your pets.
