Diffusers are a must-have tool for any oil user, but there are many models out there and it can be overwhelming. A favorite in my collection is a ceramic essential oil diffuser I bought from Edens Garden.
It is an ultrasonic diffuser, the most popular type of diffuser currently used in the EO world. It is able to release essential oil molecules into the air using ultrasonic waves. The waves instantly vaporize the water and oils in the tank to produce a cool, aromatic mist.
Many therapeutic benefits can be gained when diffused essential oil molecules in the air are inhaled. Read more about essential oil diffuser benefits. Here you will learn how to use a ceramic essential oil diffuser with step by step instructions.
Do's & Don'ts of Diffusing Essential Oils
Here are some tips on using an essential oil diffuser
- Always use on a stable, uncluttered surface that is level.
- Do not pour water directly in the tank from a faucet, it could overflow and damage diffuser parts. Best to use a measuring cup.
- Don't place anything over the diffuser spout.
- Only use room temperature water.
- Avoid putting in direct sunlight or in front of a fan.
- Don't move or tilt while the diffuser is running.
- Always keep out of reach of children and pets.
- Don't fill the diffuser while the unit is running.
- Remove all liquid from the water tank after use.
- Do not immerse the diffuser in water.
- Never run diffuser without water.
- Don't use pre-diluted essential oils or carrier oils, they may damage the diffuser.
- If the diffuser gets knocked over, turn off immediately and unplug. Pour out any remaining water, shake to get it all out. Let air dry for 24 hours.
- The amount and intensity of mist produced will vary, this is normal.
How to Use Ceramic Essential Oil Diffuser
Step 1: Remove outer ceramic cover and tank cap.
Step 2: Pour in 100 ml of room temperature water using a measuring cup. The tank also has a fill line on it as a guide.
Step 3: Add essential oils of choice. Edens Garden manual recommends 10-15 drops of pure essential oils. I personally like to use 5-10 drops in my diffuser. You can always add more if the scent is not strong enough, but if you put in too much you can't adjust it.
Step 4: Replace the tank cap and ceramic cover.
Step 5: Make sure the diffuser is plugged in. Turn on either continuous or intermittent mode as desired. Turn on light if preferred.

Edens Garden Ceramic Diffuser Review
This post features a ceramic diffuser from Edens Garden. What I like about the Edens Garden Ceramic Diffuser is that it is simple to use, high quality, and really pretty in the blue ombre color.
It has a 100ml capacity tank which is the perfect size for aromatherapy. It is compact enough to fit in small spaces and powerful enough to use in larger rooms.
This diffuser has an auto shut-off feature. It will turn itself off when the water tank is empty. It will make a quick few beeps when it goes off to let you know. It could be problematic if you are a light sleeper and use during the night but it doesn't bother me.
What comes in the box:
- Ceramic outer cover
- Base and water tank (with fill line)
- Power adapter
- Easy pour measuring cup
- User Manual
- Width- 3.25 in
- Height- 5.5 in
- Covers- 300- 500 sq ft
- 100-240 Volts
- You can control the mist and light intensity by pressing the “Light” & “Mist” buttons in intervals.
- Press the “Mist” button once, for continuous diffusion. Press again, for intermittent mist (30 seconds ON/ 30 seconds OFF). Press once more, to turn off your diffuser.
- Press the “Light” button once, for a bright display. Press again, for more ambient lighting. Press once more and your diffuser light will turn off.
