Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts from plants and are used in a variety of ways to improve the smell of your house, office or room. They are also used to improve moods and sooth minds. You can use essential oils in your bath, in lotions or beauty products, household cleaning and even bug repellents. One popular way to diffuse the smell of essential oils is to put the oil in a humidifier. The humidifier then spreads the scent of your essential oil throughout the entire room.
1. Open the water chamber of your humidifier. This is the area where you pour the water into the humidifier.
2. Add three to nine drops of the essential oil. The scent you choose is completely up to you, so select a scent that you’re drawn to. Some popular choices include eucalyptus, lavender and rose
3. Turn the humidifier on and let it run through the night. If you want to use the humidifier during the day, add three to nine more drops of essential oil as the scent wears off.
Tips & Warnings
1.As an alternative to the humidifier method, add several drops of essential water to boiling or very hot water. Let the water set and the steam will diffuse the scent of your essential oil through the air.
2.Clean the humidifier after each use with the essential oil. It’s possible that the essential oil may damage the plastic parts of your humidifier. This is not common but is still a risk to consider.
