I've recently gotten into diffusing essential oils, and I've come to realize there are a multitude of ways to diffuse them. How do you diffuse oils? Super simple, you add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to the diffuser of your choice. That's it! I would recommend only adding 1-3 drops of oil, more than that can be a bit overwhelming.
Types of Essential Oil Diffusers
1. Cool Mist Diffuser
This is the type of diffuser I use daily. Every morning I add water and 1-3 drops of essential oil (Lavender, Purify, 4 Thrive, and Rose are my favorites). This particular diffuser has a 1 hour, 3 hour, and 6 hour function which will auto shut off after the allotted time.
TIP- Place a few drops of Purify oil in your diffuser once a week to keep it clean. I've noticed that the water creates some sort of pink sludge, but if you add a few drops (thanks mom- she discovered this) then it cleans it out.
2. USB Diffusers
These are portable and can be used in your office, laptop on vacation, or anywhere you might be with a USB port. You just hook them into the USB port, add your oils, and go!
3. Car Diffusers
Car diffusers are also portable (obviously), but they run off the 12v DC outlet instead of a USB port. Although, there are USB diffusers that work if you have a USB port in your car. Newer cars tend to have a USB port, but older cars would need a 12v DC outlet diffuser. Just make sure which will work for you before buying one.
4. Necklace Diffusers
Want something super portable? Go with a necklace diffuser! These are super cute, there are tons of styles, and they lightly diffuse essential oils all day. These are especially helpful if you have a cold, allergies, anxiety, or other ailments because breathing in the oils can be extremely beneficial in enhancing mental and physical well-being.
