Make sure that the diffuser is turned off and unplugged before removing the glass column and add 20 drops of essential oil or for long lasting enjoyment, add the contents of a 5ml to 15ml bottle of your favorite Living Libations essential oils into the reservoir. We find adding this nice juicy amount lasts and lasts for weeks and you can occasionally top it off with accent aromas like a drop of Neroli, Chamomile or Silver Fir. Return the reservoir to the wooden base and replace the glass column. Plug in the diffuser, turn on the control knob and adjust it to your preferred speed. The diffuser has a cycle of two hours. Avoid letting the reservoir go dry while on.
Pro-Tips: Essential oils with a thinner consistency diffuse really well and will generally not have to ever be cleaned – simply keep adding oils as the reservoir gets low. Our diffuser blends are designed for diffusion and single essences in this category, includes all of the Citruses, Firs, Spruces, Sages, Chamomiles', Frankincenses and Pines, along with many others like Lavender, Ylang, Geranium, Marjoram, Eucalyptus, Ravensara, Myrtle, Hyssop, Immortelle, Lemongrass, Rose Otto, Neroli, Bergamot, Cardamom, Cypress, Juniper, Basil, Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Tea Tree and many more. Thicker absolutes and essential oils like Eaglewood, Agarwood, Cypress Wood, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Cedar, Myrrh, Benzoin and Patchouli are ideally used in smaller amounts and diluted in one of the above oils before adding to the diffuser. On the rare occasion, if a deep clean is needed, allow the diffuser to run for a few minutes with 5mls of organic alcohol in the reservoir. Then drain any remaining alcohol from the reservoir, rinse, and let dry before using.
