Essential Oil Diffusers
Essential oil diffusers have become extremely popular and are a great alternative to scented candles. They work by using a fan and ultrasonic vibration to emit a mist of water and aroma into the air.
They are also a lot quieter than nebulizers and are less expensive. They usually use distilled or filtered water and require a few drops of essential oil per hour.
How They Work
Ultrasonic essential oil diffusers are a safe alternative to scented candles or oil burners that use a flame. They work on ultrasonic vibrations at a frequency that our ears can’t hear and are therefore very low-noise, especially when compared to other essential oil diffusers.
You add water to the tank and then a few drops of your chosen essential oils. Once you switch it on, a small disc or plate below the water causes ultrasonic vibrations to break down the essential oils into a mist. This is then dispersed into the air. The water vapour and essential oils are then mixed together by a fan inside the ultrasonic diffuser, which can either be on the base of the unit or built into the nozzle.
The plastic fan helps the mist and essential oils rise up to the nozzle opening and diffuse MH-MAE01 Maxcan Essential Oil Diffusers out into the space around them. Some models also have interval settings, allowing you to set the duration of time it will run for.

How to Use
With ultrasonic diffusers, all you have to do is plug it in and add water (following the instructions for your specific model), then drop a few drops of essential oil into the tank. Most models are designed to be simple to use, making them the ideal choice for anyone new to using aromatherapy.
Once you turn the diffuser on, an ultrasonic disc in the bottom of the tank begins to vibrate at a frequency that humans can’t hear. These vibrations cause the oil to break down into micro-particles, which are then dispersed into the air as a mist.
Ultrasonic diffusers can be used throughout your home or work environment and they are a great alternative to candles or air fresheners. Since they don’t use heat, ultrasonic diffusers are safe to use around children and also safer for your lungs.

While it’s not required, cleaning your ultrasonic diffuser regularly is a good idea to prevent essential oil residue that could linger and impact future scent combinations. A warm damp cloth and mild dish soap are all you need to gently wash your diffuser. Avoid the temptation to use a sanitizing cleaner, as this will likely introduce dangerous chemical fumes into your home.
The most important thing to keep in mind when using an ultrasonic diffuser is that it needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. This will prevent buildup of essential oil, which can damage the plate or chip that is used to diffuse the mist in your oil diffuser.
When you’re ready to clean your diffuser, start by unplugging it and emptying the water from the reservoir. Next, fill the tank up halfway with water (but don’t pass the max fill line) and add ten drops of white vinegar to the water. This will help dissipate any excess oils in the water and remove odor from the air. Once you’ve done that, let the water-vinegar mixture run through your diffuser for about five minutes before turning it off.
Afterward, you can use your cleaning brush or cotton swab that’s been soaked in rubbing alcohol to clean the interior of the diffuser, including any tight spaces and corners. You should also use a dry cloth to wipe down the lid and cover of your diffuser before using it again.
While it’s not necessary to clean your diffuser after every single use, you should do it after at least four weeks to ensure that all residue has been removed. Cleaning your diffuser on a regular basis will help prolong the life of it, as well as ensure that the essential oil blends you’re using are working to their fullest potential.
