How to Use the Combinations of Essential Oils in Your Diffuser

How to Use the Combinations in Your Diffuser

Diffusing essential oils can be really easy and fun. Initially, it may be a little foreign but after a short time of diffusing, you will get the hang of it and become comfortable experimenting with oils and different combinations.

To use the combination in your diffuser, just grab the two oils listed for your desired use and place a few drops of each into your diffuser with the recommended water amount your tank requires...that's it! I told you this was simple.

I try to keep the total drops for my diffuser between 5-10 drops. The number of drops really depends on several factors, here are some:

  • Children or pets around, use less total drops
  • Strong essential oil, use less drops (of that oil at least...patchouli, vetiver, ylang ylang, etc.)
  • Large room, use more drops
  • Want a strong aroma to fill the area, use more drops
  • Want a gentle aroma, use fewer drops

Remember this isn't an exact science and you really can't make a mistake. The worst that can happen is you do not like the combination, in that case, cross it off and continue on. If it was too strong or not strong enough, just change the number of drops next time.
