Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do Diffuser Blends Last?

Diffuser blends' longevity depends on their ingredients, storage conditions, and frequency of use. Ingredients like citrus oils have shorter lifespans, while proper storage in a cool, dark place can extend their shelf life. Using a mix of oils with varying longevity and high-quality ingredients can help you enjoy your diffuser blends for extended periods.

Can I Use Food Coloring?

Using food coloring in diffuser blends is generally not recommended. Food coloring is designed for consumption and may not be safe or suitable for use in diffusers. Additionally, food coloring may not mix well with essential oils and could clog or damage your diffuser. Sticking to essential and carrier oils when creating diffuser blends is best to ensure safety and effectiveness.

Are There Any Allergies I Should Be Aware Of?

To avoid allergic reactions, perform a patch test before using a new essential oil. Dilute a small amount of the oil and apply it to a small skin area. If any redness, itching, or irritation occurs, discontinue use.

How Many Drops Should I Use?

Refer to your diffuser's user manual for specific recommendations, as capacities and diffusion rates vary. It's also essential to consider the strength and potency of your essential oils, as some oils are more concentrated than others. Experiment to find the perfect balance of drops for your desired aroma.

Can I Mix Different Brands?

Yes, you can mix different brands of essential oils in your diffuser.

How Can I Reuse Leftover Diffuser Blends?

Reusing leftover diffuser blends is a great way to get the most out of your essential oils and reduce waste.
