EO's in a Diffuser

Many times we are asked:

How much essential oils should I be using in my Diffuser?

The answer to this question depends on the type of diffuser you are using.   Click here to read all about the various factors in determinging types of diffusers and more.

Below are suggested starting points but many folks find they need to use varying amounts depending on the room size, air currents and personal scenting level.

For a Scentball - start with 5 drops - depending on the size of the room you may need to use upto 20-25 drops reapply every 3-4 hours

Car diffusers - 2 drops - diffuser no longer than 20 minutes every 3-4 hours. Unplug the unit after 20 minutes.

Fan Fuser Fan Diffuser - 20 - 30 drops is usually the minimum - 50 drops is not unusual to use in larger rooms.  Depending on the essential oils used and the size of the room you may need to reapply every 4-5 hours

SpaScenter Fan Diffuser - 20 - 30 drops - reapply every 3-4 hours

TruMelange Fan Diffuser - 20-30 drops -  reapply every 3-4 hours

Ultrasonic Misting Diffuser - 5-10 drops - this unit runs until the water is gone.  You use 5-10 drops each water fill.

Oil & Wax Tart Warmers - One to Three unscented mini- tarts and once it is melted add 20-50 drops or more as desired.    This is a personal preference as to how often you feel you need to add more essential oils.

Oil & Tart Night Light - one unscented mini-tart, once melted add 10-15 drops.  This is a personal preference as to how often you feel you need to add more essential oils.

Any Jewelry - 1 drop on the pad or flower or terra cotta pendant - reapply every 4-8 hours as desired

Lapel Dots - 1 drop -  reapply every 4-8 hours as desired

Terra Cotta Discs - Fill the depression full - let it soak in.    Most of the wells (depressions) will hole 20-30 drops or more.   Some oils will penetrate the disc and provide 1-5 days of diffusing at low levels.

Nasal Inhaler - 6-20 drops on the cotton rod or inside the 'sealed' type inhalers.  Usually once every 4-5 months depending on how often you use it.
