The cleaning aspect of using an essential oil diffuser is often overlooked. This is likely because the task can seem a little daunting. But if the task were simple, would you do it more often? To extend the life of your diffuser and keep it looking nice, we recommend cleaning it after every cycle (or at least every week or month, depending on your usage).
We would like to address a few ways we have found that work well for cleaning our most popular diffusers. Though we will explain how to clean specific diffusers, this information can be used for other diffusers that are similar.
|Advanced Essential Oil Vial Diffuser:
This diffuser is nice because there really isn’t a lot to clean, and it doesn’t need to be cleaned as often. However, sometimes the essential oils can clog the atomizer tube and will need to be cleaned out.
To Clean The Advanced Essential Oil Diffuser:
|Whisper Premium Silent Misting Diffuser:
This diffuser is pretty easy to clean, especially if done often. Because the oils don’t have contact with the ultrasonic disc, it isn’t as vital to clean this diffuser after every cycle like other humidifying diffusers. However, cleaning it at least once a week or so, depending on usage, will help extend the life of the diffuser.
To Clean The Whisper Diffuser:
|Basic Ultrasonic Diffuser:
As with many ultrasonic diffusers, the oil and water are placed in the base of this diffuser with the ultrasonic disc. Because the oils are near the ultrasonic disc, they may create a build-up on the disc that can prohibit it from working properly. Therefore, it is necessary to clean this diffuser often in order to maximize its life. We recommend cleaning this diffuser after every cycle.
To Clean Basic Ultrasonic Diffusers:
Use this diffuser cleaner to make your job easy! Just spray and wipe down after every diffuser cycle or as needed.
Ingredients & supplies:
- 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
- 5–8 drops lemon essential oil
- 2 oz. glass spray bottle
- Fill the 2 oz. bottle with vinegar and add essential oil. Screw the spray top on the bottle and shake to combine.
- To use, spray your diffuser inside and out and wipe with a cloth or paper towel.
Note: If your diffuser has an ultrasonic disc, use alcohol and a cotton swab to clean the disc after cleaning with the vinegar.
