Diffusers are an ideal asset for your home or office. Depending on what essential oils you use, diffusers deliver them into the air to freshen your space and meet your various aromatic needs, which can range from calming and relaxing aromas to invigorating and grounding ones. These aromas can have a profound impact on your level of creativity and innovation.
Regardless of the type of diffuser you have, learning how to clean your diffuser is important to ensure its longevity. If left uncleaned for too long, essential oils or any leftover water can corrode and ruin your unit. This can also negatively affect your aromatic experience. If there’s an array of essential oil residue in the diffuser, aromas muddy together and mingle in a sometimes unpleasant way—imagine trying to diffuse Basil after Spikenard!
To keep your diffuser in perfect running condition for years to come, clean your diffuser after each use by wiping it out and letting it dry before using it again. For a quick clean, it is a good idea to diffuse Lemon oil for a short time. This makes it easier to clean out any residue or water lines before you wipe it out. For diffusers that do not use water, make sure to rinse out the nozzle with tap water and then wipe it clean.
We also recommend that you deep clean your diffusers once a month or as needed. Do so by following these steps based on the type of diffuser you have.
