Class Idea: Unlocking Diffusion

In the world of essential oils, having the right diffuser is key. But what’s even more important is knowing how to use your diffuser! Whether you are teaching a diffusion class or you just want to understand how to more effectively use your own diffuser, this post is for you! We want to share some of the tips and tricks we have found to enhance your diffuser usage in hopes that you will pass this on to all of your friends. Combine all these ideas, or simply pick one to focus on. Then, if you feel comfortable, teach a class to help your team and friends better use their diffusers.

It can be incredibly frustrating when you see a thousand different diffusers on the market and have no idea which one to choose. The most essential part of diffusing is knowing that you chose the right diffuser. Luckily for you, we wrote a post about all the different features of diffusers and how our diffusers compare with each other. Add this information to your class to help inform beginners (and even pros!) about the different features that will fit their diffusing needs perfectly! Click here to see the wide variety of diffusers that we currently carry.

Sometimes diffusion can seem complicated when we get into the science of how to properly blend essential oils. In our “Art of Roller Bottle Blending” post, we discuss the science of blending oils. Consider teaching proper blending as part of your diffusion class using this technique. If you are looking for somewhere to start, check out these diffuser blends on a budget! We created them with your wallet in mind! They also make great blends for beginners, because they contain all of the basic oils.

Keeping your diffuser clean is very important if you want to maximize its life. Use this diffuser cleaner to make your job easy! Just spray and wipe down after every diffuser cycle or as needed. This also works as a great tool to clean out the previously diffused smell when you want to diffuse something different. Consider making small bottles of this cleaner as a gift to the attendees of your diffuser class, or use this recipe for a make-and-take class! You can even print off these cute labels that work with these label sheets for your diffuser cleaner spray.
