Q & A wet diffusers

How many drops of oil are you supposed to use?

It depends on the type and concentration of the oil you use; we suggest to start with about 5 drops and adjust if desired depending on the size of the room or factors like natural ventilation in the room etc

Is the water and oil heated before or during diffusion?

All our diffusers create a ‘cold’ mist; no heat added so no change in the molecular structure of the oil. For the wet diffusers the mist is generated by a small membrane that vibrates the water with high frequency creating the mist. For the dry diffusers we use an air pump that blows air over a small tube and disperses the oil into fine drops.  The electronics will cause some temperature increase of the bottom of the diffuser.

Can you shut off the light while diffusing ?

Yes; all our models have the ability to turn light on or off; The wet diffusers have 7 color pattern that will change over time; can be set to one color or turned off. The dry diffusers keep the light on after the diffuse cycle is finished, so they can be used as a night lamp. 

Do I need to use specific brand of essential oil?

In principle not; but there are some bad ones around that are not recommended, like synthetic fragrances or thick oils that can block the spray nozzle of a dry diffuser. Apart from the unappealing smell, an easy way to check if the oil is acceptable is to put a couple of drops on a piece of paper and leave it for 24 hours. If a fatty residue is left behind you are most likely dealing with a chemically enhanced oil.  

Is the water holder of the wet copper diffuser glass or plastic?

The water holder (100 ml) is BPA free; the same material that is used for food containers and water bottles. Don't clean the water reservoir with hot water as it can deform the reservoir and make it more difficult to close the lid.

Does citrus oil ruin my diffuser?

Most essential oils are highly concentrated and effect materials other than glass; if a wet diffuser is used you should not put the oil in undiluted for long period of time. Once the diffuser is ‘producing’ mist, the essential oil fractions will first leave the diffuser as they are easier to evaporate so the concentration will reduce during the diffusing process. Once the cycle is complete it is recommended to clean the water-reservoir with kitchen paper or microfiber.

Can a diffuser with oil blend be used in a child’s room?

Yes, no problem as long as you are aware of the concentration of the oil and the quality is suitable, do the evaporation test first as described on Q&A page 1 so you verified that all the oil will evaporate. If the bedroom is small, we suggest to try a couple of drops first and check the dispersed scent. The light can be switched off of needed. 

Can the oil blends be used on porous beads or necklace diffuser?

Yes, If you have our gift pack oil assortment under our own brand you can use the oil on volcanic rock beads as they leave no residue.

Does your set diffuser use tap water or distilled water?

It depends on the water quality and the hardness of the water; if your taps have a white scale deposit it could be an indication that there is a lot of calcium and magnesium in the water; the same deposit will end up in your diffuser. Another consideration is added chlorine in your water-supply that will cause an unwanted smell in your room. Two easy ways to get rid of it; one is boiling the water first and let it cool down before putting it in your diffuser; or use filtered (designed to remove unwanted impurities) water. If you are unsure you can use de-mineralized or distilled water.

Does the diffuser have batteries?

No batteries in any of our diffusers; they work with external power supply only; use the adapter provided; In case of our dry diffusers with USB cable; they can be used with a USB power supply of 1000mA.

How best to clean a glass dry nebulizer diffuser?

 We recommend to flush the glass nebulizer diffuser with medical alcohol or iso-propyl alcohol to remove residue of any oils left behind or if you want to use another blend. Gently remove the glass form the diffuser body and fill it with less than 0.5” of alcohol and swirl it until the glass is clean. Empty the glass and let it dry. Never try to clean it with a brush on the inside as the glass Bernoulli tube is very fragile.   

I filled the reservoir of my nebulizer diffuser, turned it on, but no mist.

In general nebulizers don't produce a lot of mist compared to the ultra sonic diffusers that use water to create a plume coming from the top of the diffuser. For nebulizers in general the mist production depends on the viscosity of the oil; a 'thin' oil will produce more mist than a  'thick' oil. Also if the essential oil is diluted with a carrier oil, like coconut, the mist production will be very low to invisible.

What are the best oils to us?.

Essential oils that are made using steam extraction or distillation processes are the best to use as they don't leave a residue inside the diffuser. An easy test is to put one drop of the oil intended to use on a piece of printer paper and allow it to evaporate. if there is no residue after a couple of hours than it will not leave a residue in your diffuser. If it leaves a grease spot on the paper than it will leave the same grease behind inside the diffuser and cleaning should be done after every use.

Q&A dry diffusers 2

IS THERE A MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY METHOD TO CLEAN A NEBULIZER ?

If the oil that you have been using in the nebulizer did not have a carrier oil and did not leave a grease spot on the paper test as described earlier, the cleaning can be easily done using some apple vinegar after removing the glass from the diffuser base. Just swirl while the vinegar is inside the glass, empty the glass and use warm water with a teaspoon of baking soda to flush the glass and neutralize the vinegar. Avoid to attempt to dry the glass inside with a cloth or similar as the glass spray nozzles are very delicate.

Q&A dry diffusers 3

is there a more environmentally way to clean a nebulizer?

Yes; if your oil did not leave a grease spot on the paper as described earlier. Just remove the glass from the body and fill it with about one cm vinegar and swirl to clean and dissolve the remaining oil. Empty the glass and fill it with warm water with a some baking soda to neutralize the vinegar. Empty the glass and it is ready for use.

Can I use a dish washing detergent?

Yes, you can do that as well, remove glass from base and glean it as if you are cleaning a delicate wine glass. However don't try to clean the inside with a cloth.

what if my nebulizer runs out of oil

If the oil has been dispersed the nebulizer will keep running until the time is expired so up to a maximum of 4 hours in the low (green setting). This will have no effect on the nebulizer; it will not run hot or be damaged.
