What is an essential oil diffuser and how do I use it?

Diffusers disperse essential oils as a fine vapor throughout the air so they can be absorbed gently into the body through the olfactory and respiratory system. There are millions of diffusers on the market but there are a few key things you need to look for in a diffuser:
  • Diffuser must send out cool air not hot steam.¬† You must be able to place your hand over the air and not feel heat. This is a safety precaution to ensure you do not get burnt.
  • Ability to automatically turn off once the water has reached a minimum level. This prevents the diffuser from burning itself out and malfunctioning.
  • Variable timer.
  • Night light optional

The following 30 second video shows you the Petal diffuser in operation.

The key to successfully using your diffuser is to only use 4-6 drops of essential oil. doTERRA essential oils are pure and therefore extremely concentrated. Less is more!

I have tried many diffusers on the market and I still come back to the doTERRA Petal diffuser because it is economical, safe, easy to use and hard working. To purchase your diffuser and essential oils, click on shop now.
