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.
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.
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.
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.
Bushberry Nebulizers have been specially tuned to a moderate essential oil consumption, so they are not expensive to run. We used d'Oterra lavender oil (the best selling variety in North America; Europe and Australia) and adjusted the usage to 10 ml per 30 hours of operation in middle setting (blue led)
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.
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.
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.
