How to Use a Nebulizing Diffuser

Last Updated on March 18, 2024 by Pegura Chad

You may have heard of the Nebulizing Diffuser and are curious as to how it works or why it is better than other types of essential oil diffusers. Read on to learn how to use a Nebulizing Diffuser and how it works.

What Are Nebulizing Diffusers?

A nebulizing diffuser is a recent innovation by Organic Aromas. Instead of using heat or water, the nebulizing diffuser uses pressurized air to turn the essential oils into microparticles which it then diffuses into the air. This method is more efficient than heat or water. Because the nebulizing diffuser releases essential oil microparticles, the fragrance remains strong and you get the full, unaltered benefits of the essential oils.

How Do Nebulizing Diffusers Work?

The Nebulizing Diffuser does not use heat or water to diffuse essential oil. Instead, it relies on a physics concept called Bernoulli’s Principle. The Nebulizing Diffuser uses air currents to atomize and then disperse essential oils. The diffuser releases pressurized air to turn the essential oils into microparticles. Meanwhile, reduced pressure at the exit point causes the microparticles to rise up and exit into the air.

How To Use a Nebulizing Diffuser?

Using a Nebulizing Diffuser will enhance your aromatherapy experience. It’s a simple device to operate. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Set up the Nebulizing Diffuser. Connect the cable to the power input in base of the diffuser. Then, attach the glass reservoir.
  2. Add essential oils into the diffuser through the opening at the top of the glass reservoir.
  3. Place the glass cap on top of the diffuser and turn it on. You may set a timer if you prefer.

To maintain your Nebulizing Diffuser, you may want to clean it every few days, especially if you use it every day. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Discard any leftover essential oils in the glass reservoir.
  2. Add a few drops of high concentrate alcohol into the glass reservoir. Shake the alcohol around to rinse the glass reservoir. Then, throw the alcohol away.
  3. Add another few drops of alcohol into the reservoir. Using the pipette to flush out essential oils in the microtubes inside the glass reservoir.
  4. Without removing the alcohol, attach the glass reservoir to the base and let it run for 5 minutes.
