What is the best diffuser?
Do you enjoy a fresh scent in your home. One way to improve the atmosphere in your home is to diffuse essential oils. But how do you know what diffuser is best for your home? Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. But there are two types that I recommend: Ultrasonic and Atomizing.
An ultrasonic diffuser functions as a humidifier, atomizer, and aroma diffuser. Ultrasonic frequency technology breaks down essential oils and water into millions of micro-particles, dispersing them into the air, and releasing the oils’ unique constituents. Water is needed, but only a few drops of oil are used.
An atomizing diffuser functions as an aroma diffuser, air purifier, and atomizer in one simple-to-use product. Its atomizing technology transforms essential oils into a vapor of millions of micro-particles, dispersing them into the air and releasing the powerful plant constituents found in Young Living essential oils. They are convenient to use because you simply screw the essential oil bottle directly onto the atomizer. No water is needed.
In both cases, diffusers help you enjoy a positive aromatic experience.
I do not recommend any diffuser that heats or burns the essential oils, since that will change the properties of the essential oils you are diffusing, and you will not experience the same benefits that atomizing or ultrasonic diffusers provide.
Young Living offers many choices in diffusers that are very popular. All of them are simple to operate and have proven reliability. I own and use several different diffusers. No matter what Young Living diffuser you select, you can’t go wrong! These are choices you have right now in 2024 from Young Living:
Here are some tips about keeping your Ultrasonic clean.
  • Unplug your diffuser before cleaning. OK that’s just common sense, right? 
  • Clean your diffuser at least once a month. Clean the diffuser plate after each use for maximum efficiency. A tissue or cotton swab works well. 
  • Always empty your diffuser and make sure it is clean and dry after each use. Leaving oil or water in your diffuser to evaporate will gum up your diffuser plate over time so it no longer works. Some diffusers allow you to replace the ultrasonic plate.
  • Wipe the diffuser plate to absorb any remaining oil and water. A cotton swab works well.
  • If you have buildup over time, use a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to dissolve and clean the plate. Make sure to let the alcohol evaporate completely before diffusing again. 
  • The lid of the diffuser can be cleaned with soap and water if necessary. Wipe the other parts with a damp cloth. 
Happy diffusing!
