Cleaning your essential oil diffuser

The doTERRA diffusers are an ideal asset to keep in your home or office. Depending on what essential oils you diffuse, they purify the air you breathe and freshen the space with oils infused to meet your needs, which can range from calming and promoting sleep, to waking and grounding the mind by reducing feelings of stress and anxious feelings. A grounded mind 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 for too long, essential oils or any leftover water can corrode and ruin your unit, and can also negatively affect your aromatic experience when there’s an array of essential oil residue in the diffuser.

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.

However, I for one always forget to do this!

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:

How to Deep-Clean an Ultrasonic Diffuser (for Brevi, Lumo, or Petal diffusers)

  1. Turn off your diffuser.
  2. Wipe it with a clean damp cloth, kitchen roll or tissue. 
  3. Fill the water reservoir with clean water.
  4. Add 10 drops of white vinegar to the water reservoir.
  5. Leave it for about half an hour.
  6. Drain the water reservoir completely.
  7. Dip a cotton swab in white vinegar and wipe down the edges of the water reservoir as well as the ultrasonic mist chip.
  8. Rinse the water reservoir with clean water.
  9. Run the diffuser with just clean water.
  10. Repeat this until you cannot smell vinegar.

Keeping a clean diffuser allows for the best possible experience in using your doTERRA essential oils aromatically.
