How To Clean Your Aromatherapy Diffuser…


diffuserSo, you purchased an aromatherapy diffuser, placed in it your favorite oils, and then enjoyed the relaxing scent.

Now you are probably wondering how to clean the contraption.  Cleaning is a necessary step to ensure that oil residue doesn’t build up in your machine preventing it from working properly.

Below is outlined the step by step process to ensure the cleanliness of your diffuser.

  • Step 1:   Add a quarter cup of rubbing alcohol to your diffuser.
  • Step 2:  Turn the diffuser on and allow it to run for three to five minutes.
  • Step 3:  From the base of the diffuser, remove the tube while holding one finger over the opening.
  • Step 4:  Vigorously shake the tube to spread the alcohol throughout.  If there is any stuck-on oil residue, allow the tube to soak in the alcohol overnight.
  • Step 5: Drain the alcohol and then rub an alcohol-soaked cotton swab throughout the tube to ensure its cleanliness.
  • Step 6: Wash the diffuser tube with hot water and soap and then drain.  Allow the tube to dry.
  • Step 7: Reassemble the diffuser and turn it on allowing it to run for 10 minutes without any oils.  This will not harm your machine and will ensure that it is completely dry.

Your machine is now clean and ready to receive your favorite essential oil.  Clean your unit regularly to ensure your oils are diffused properly and to prolong the life of your diffuser.  Enjoy!
