How many drops should you use in your diffuser?

Here’s a general guide on how many drops you can use in your doTERRA diffusers.

Deep Clean Every Month

Cleaning is a necessary step to ensure that oil residue doesn’t build up in your machine preventing it from working properly. Periodically, it is a good idea to run your diffuser through a cleaning cycle. If you use your unit every day, then running a cleaning cycle monthly is a good idea. To do so, do the following:

  1. Fill your diffuser half way with clean water.
  2. Add 10 drops of white vinegar.
  3. Let the diffuser run for about 5 minutes to allow the water-vinegar mixture to disperse throughout the unit and clean it.
  4. Drain the diffuser completely.
  5. Using a cotton swab dipped in vinegar, clean the tight spots and corners of the diffuser.
  6. Rinse with clean water.
  7. Use a dry cloth to wipe the diffuser and dry it thoroughly.

Why use a diffuser to get benefits from essential oils?

→ Aromatically

The sense of smell can elicit powerful physiologic, mental, and emotional responses. Essential oils are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system by way of the olfactory nerve. The limbic system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions including smell, emotions, behaviour, and memory. Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming. Diffusion is the simplest method for using essential oils aromatically.

Here are some of my favourite diffuser blends for sleep, head colds, relaxation and motivation.
