How to clean the diffuser

After you install your diffuser and enjoy the ambiance it provides, it is not good to forget the fact that you need to maintain it from time to time to keep it working smoothly. Essential oils can leave a greasy residue that, when built up, can hinder the diffuser's ability to perform at its maximum capacity.

Oils - especially very viscous ones like patchouli leave behind residue that can clog diffusers so they don't work as well or can affect the scent and effectiveness of the next oil you diffuse. For example if you want to create a relaxing atmosphere and diffuse lavender into the diffuser, the residual aroma of the energizing lemon you diffused earlier in the day could make it difficult to relax. For this reason, wash the diffuser thoroughly after each use before adding a new essential oil.

Daily cleaning of the diffuser - after each use

This short procedure will ensure that you enjoy the benefits of essential oils every day:

1. Unplug the diffuser

2. If there is any liquid left, drain it.

3. Wipe the tank with a damp cleaning cloth or paper towel to remove scale, deposits or film that has formed on the inside of the tank

4. Wipe all small areas with a cotton pads.

5. Dry and polish with a clean, dry cloth.

Thorough cleaning of the diffuser

A thorough cleaning of the diffuser is sufficient once or twice a month. Be careful when cleaning to avoid dirt and grime building up in your diffuser.

1. Unplug the diffuser

2. If there is any liquid left, drain it.

3. Fill the diffuser about halfway with clean water. Add up to 10 drops of pure white vinegar. This will help remove oils that have become trapped inside the diffuser and on the glass or plastic parts.

4. Let the diffuser run for about 3-5 minutes to disperse the water and vinegar mixture around the unit and clean it. We recommend that you do it outside because the smell will not be the most pleasant.

5. Empty the diffuser completely.

6. Use a cotton pad or a cotton paper dipped in vinegar to clean the tight spots and corners of the diffuser to make sure no spots are left dirty.

7. Rinse with clean water. Never place the diffuser under a stream of water.

8. Drain again and you're good to go.

9. Use a dry cloth or several cotton towels to wipe the diffuser and dry it thoroughly.

Although this tip may seem exhausting at first, once you start applying it regularly, it will become second nature.
