Looking after your Diffuser

The most common way of using Young Living Essential Oils for beginners is via a diffuser. It is the easiest way to get started, pick a fun oil, add water, turn it on, and the powerful scents waft through your house in seconds. Unfortunately a part of this use that we often overlook is keeping the hardware clean.

There are two types of diffuser systems and how to clean them is a little different.

For the Ultrasonic diffusers (Aria™, Rainstone™, Desert Mist™, Lantern, and other diffusers with an ultrasonic plate)

  1. Turn off and unplug the diffuser
  2. Wipe out the water reservoir with a wet cloth
  3. Get some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab and get in touch with the ultrasonic plate to remove any build up
  4. Rinse out the reservoir with some water then wipe it clean and get all the excess water with a soft cloth
  5. Add your favourite essential oils, a splash of water, and make that house smell great again

For the Atomizer diffusers (AromaLux™ and other atomizers)

  1. Turn off and unplug the diffuser
  2. Rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs, use them on all areas of the diffuser
  3. Give it a minute or two to evaporate
  4. Add essential oils and make that house smell great again
