Diffusers disperse essential oil molecules into the air providing many benefits for you and your home.
Certain essential oils like wild orange, lemon, and clove help keep the house smelling fresh and clean.

I love having a nice smelling home. After moving away from candles a few years back, I have since replaced all the candles in my home with essential oil diffusers. Not only does my house smell nice, but my family is also reaping the benefits of the oils.

This blend often diffuses in my home throughout the winter, especially when someone in my family isn’t feeling well. These oils are great for immune support. I also like using this winter blend when we have been exposed to environmental threats.

HOW TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN YOUR DIFFUSER
It is very important that you clean your diffuser regularly because oils get stuck inside the diffuser and can cause it not to work properly. It is an easy process and won’t take much of your time!
To clean your diffuser:
- Fill the diffuser halfway up with water and add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.
- Turn the diffuser on and let it run for 15 minutes or until the mixture runs out. Fifteen minutes is plenty of time, but I usually forgot and just let it run through.
- Drain the diffuser completely.
- You can use a q-tip with vinegar on the tip to clean around the edges and any tight nooks of the diffuser.
- Rinse the diffuser with clean water and let it air dry.
How often should you clean your diffuser?
Most research says to clean your diffuser after each use, but I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t do that!
If you don’t use your diffuser often, then I would suggest cleaning it after each use. I run my diffusers constantly in my home, so they aren’t sitting long without oils and freshwater going in and out.
I TRY to clean them once a week, however being a busy mom, cleaning my diffuser isn’t at the top of the list. If we are going on vacation or my diffuser has sat for a few days without being used, I will clean it.
I don’t have a set time frame; I just clean them when I feel it is time. Cleaning the diffuser can give it a longer life and help it to work more efficiently. As a rule, you should clean your diffuser once a week.
