To diffuse essential oils in your home or office is a perfect way to help you relieve tension, dispel odors, and create an atmosphere of peace and harmony. When diffusing, essential oils have been reported to support the immune system, and create a feeling of balance and wellbeing.
Pour about 10-15 drops of oil into the oil well to start. In the beginning, diffuse oils for only 15-30 minutes per day. As you become accustomed to the oils and recognize their effects, you may increase the time.
How Much Oil Is Used in Diffusing?
Thicker oils such as sandalwood or Valor, will diffuse more slowly than thinner ones, such as lavender or lemon. One 15 ml bottle of Valor will completely diffuse within 48 hours. A 15 ml bottle of lemon will diffuse within 8 hours.
You may have a bottle of thicker oil upside down on the well because it diffuses slowly. Thinner oils should be poured directly into the well so you can have greater control of the amount of oil used.
Diffusing essential oils releases oxygenating molecules as well as negative ions, which reduce bacteria in the air. Young Living's diffuser uses a special air pump custom designed to disperse the oils in a microfine vapor so they stay suspended for several hours and freshen the air with natural fragrances. The diffuser disperses oil without the heating or burning that can render the oil therapeutically less beneficial.
