Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Young Living diffusers and diffusers from other stores like TJ MAXX and Amazon?!  Well, I have one word for you that sums it up...QUALITY. YL diffusers are made from a heavy-grade plastic that causes them to last longer when diffusing pure essential oils. 


Also, one important thing to note is that Young Living’s diffusers are ultrasonic, cool mist diffusers, meaning they use technology that breaks up the water and oil mixture in the diffuser to disperse the mist into tiny particles in the air. YL diffusers do not heat up the oil in any form, so the oil’s therapeutic benefits stay intact. 

Let’s take a quick look at some of the most popular diffusers by Young Living...

Young Living diffusers are meant to last, and I love that from their oils to their diffusers, they only give us the best! Part of using and caring for your diffuser so you get the most use out of it means cleaning it. So I have a few tips for you:

1. Turn off and unplug your diffuser.
2. Wipe out the reservoir with a wet cotton cloth.
3. Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and clean the ultrasonic plate to remove any extra buildup.
4. Rinse the reservoir with water; then wipe it clean and dry up excess water with a soft cloth.

Pro tip: You could also spray a small amount of Thieves Household Cleaner in the reservoir and wipe out.
