3 WAYS TO CLEAN A NEBULIZING ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER
Congratulations on your recent purchase of an Organic Aromas nebulizing essential oil diffuser. This unique device is not just beautiful and quiet, but very powerful as well!
Before you get started diffusing fantastic aromas throughout your home, spa or office, please note that it is very important to know how to properly clean and maintain your essential oil diffuser in order to get the very best results.
If you are using your essential oil diffuser daily, then you should do a general cleaning every seven days.
Use the dropper to add a few milliliters of plain rubbing alcohol (70-95% purity) to the glass reservoir
Next power on the diffuser and let it run for five or ten minutes in order to clean the micro-tubes
Dispense of the leftover alcohol and let your diffuser air dry
Once it is dry the cleaning is done
If are you are using relatively thick pure essential oils or have not used your essential oil diffuser for a long time, then you will need to do a more intensive cleaning.
Remove the glass reservoir from the wooden base and place it in a large cup. This is to prevent any spillage or dripping
Use the dropper with alcohol to squirt and to wash the micro-tubes directly several times
After you have done this, gently shake and swirl the glass reservoir with alcohol in it to achieve a thorough clean
The shaking action will help to completely clear the micro-tubes. Afterward, dispense of the alcohol and allow the glass to dry. Once it is dry it is ready to use again
If you use your essential oil diffuser often, then every month or so you will want to deep clean your unit.
Prepare a container with hot water (about 60°C to 80°C or 140°F to 180°F)
Place the glass reservoir in the container with the hot water and add a small amount of mild dishwashing liquid
The combination of the hot water and soap will act to remove any staining, film or blockage that may have occurred
You may add more hot water periodically to achieve a more effective cleanse
Soak in the detergent and hot water for at least thirty minutes
Take your glass reservoir out and gently wash with regular tap water. Then set the unit in a safe place to dry
Once the glass reservoir is dry your cleanup is done!
