Instructions For Use And Advice

How to use and maintain your essential oil diffuser?

Rules for the use of an electric diffuser

1 – Use only pure essential oils (undiluted with alcohol, water, vegetable oil,…)            2 – The essential oil level must never reach the end of the two nozzles (black line on the photo).
If the essential oil exceeds this level, you risk the destruction of the engine by the return of essential oils. Caution: This phenomenon is not covered by the guarantee.    A diffuser works perfectly with little essential oil (1 cm is enough). So avoid overfilling it.
The order of magnitude for our models covering rooms of 50 m2 and 120 m2: about 30 minutes regularly or clean your glassware.
a – if the air supply is via an external pipe :
– Never undo the hose on the pump side (risk of breaking the plastic nozzle on the pump side).
– Never push the hose more than 5mm into the glass side (risk of breaking the glass tip when pulling the hose out). If it is too far in, you will have to cut the hose with a cutter).
When inserting or removing your glassware: Insert the glassware foot into the rubber ring in the centre of the pump. To do so, be sure to secure the glassware by gently pressing vertically with a slight to-and-fro movement from left to right while pinching the rubber ring with the other hand.

3 – As plastics do not appreciate essential oils, we advise you, when filling, to wrap a “handkerchief” around the neck of the glassware. This will limit dripping on the engine hood and especially on the black support.

 Warning: Damage caused by essential oils is not covered by the guarantee.

4 – It is preferable to diffuse little, but often (a programmer can be useful).

5 – Do not let your essential oils dry in glassware and mainly citrus fruits. Distribute

6 – Dismantle and reassemble the glassware from its support:

b – if the air supply is through the bottom of the glassware:

This rule is important because if you remove and put on your glassware by rotating it 360°, the inner tube connecting the glassware to the turbine will twist and pinch and thus prevent air from coming out. The pump makes noise because it forces but no longer emanates enough air to diffuse. Sometimes the pressure is so high that it wears out the turbine to the point where it is out of order.

Essential oils for use in an electric diffuser

In practice, all essential oils, if they are pure, can be used in a diffuser. However, some should be avoided.

It is therefore preferable to buy organic essential oils which undergo more controls and therefore offer more guarantee of quality.

Be careful when using citrus fruits (orange, tangerine, lemon, …) in a diffuser on a regular basis.
We remind you that citrus fruits are not distilled but obtained by cold extraction of the peel. Moreover, they are not essential oils, but essences.
They can of course be diffused but, as they are more fatty, you must either clean the glassware of your diffuser regularly or alternate with other essential oils (lavender for example) which will clean your glassware.

Citrus fruits can also, if they are not properly filtered, have fine particles in suspension. These particles can clog the glassware.

Maintenance of diffuser glassware

There are several methods of cleaning glassware. One or the other will be chosen according to the degree of soiling.

1 – Cleaning with alcohol

We are obviously talking about 90° alcohol (70° if you can’t get it). This method is to be preferred if the diffuser glassware is not too “dirty” or if your oils are not yet fixed. Empty your glassware of the rest of essential oils, pour 1 ml of 90° alcohol, then rotate your diffuser and let it diffuse until complete evaporation. Once the alcohol has completely evaporated, pour new drops of essential oils into the glassware. Be careful not to carry out the same operation with water.

2 – Cleaning with degreaser 

Start by draining the stagnant oil from your glassware.   

Remove the glassware from its diffuser base.                   

Pour a drop of dishwasher degreaser on it and fill the ¾ with hot water.             

Mix everything gently.

Leave to stand for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly.                                                                    

Wipe with a soft cloth and vacuum diffuse to evaporate the last suspended droplets.  Repeat cleaning with 90° alcohol if necessary.            

3 – Deep cleaning

Start by draining the stagnant oil from your glassware.               

Soak your glassware in cold tempered water and bring to a boil for a few minutes.                                                                         

Let it cool down and then drain the water (be careful of the risk of burns).   

Wipe with a soft cloth and vacuum diffuse to evaporate the last suspended droplets.

Repeat cleaning with 90° alcohol if necessary.

Good to know : The residues left by essential oils of citrus fruits (orange, lemon, neroli, bitter orange, grapefruit, tangerine) do not go away with alcohol. To remove them, simply operate the diffuser with lavender essential oil, which is an excellent cleanser.

You don’t have any more diffusion?

Before saying that your diffuser is out of order, check that your glassware is not clogged or dirty.
Place your glassware in front of a light source and check the vertical inner tube, the one where the essential oils arrive. There must be no coloured traces (dried essential oil) or particles (citrus peel), the tube must be completely transparent (see photo at the bottom of the page).

Cleaning the Giffard system

In the event that the diffusion becomes reduced or totally non-existent, you will have to clean the Giffard diffusion system from the glassware.

1 – Remove the glassware from its support. Caution:
a – if the air inlet is via an external pipe :
– Never undo the hose on the pump side (risk of breaking the plastic end cap on the pump side).
– Never push the hose more than 5mm into the glass side (risk of breaking the glass tip when pulling the hose out). If it is too far in, you will have to cut the hose with a cutter).

b – if the air inlet is through the bottom of the glassware:
Remove the glassware base from the rubber ring in the centre of the pump. To do this, be careful to pull gently vertically with a slight to-and-fro movement from left to right while pinching the rubber ring with the other hand.

2 – In order to thoroughly clean the Giffard system of your diffuser, you will need to use a glass cleaner which is the only effective product to dissolve frozen oils. The cleaning pipette will help you inject the cleaner into the injector to clear blocked particles.
3 – Fill your glassware to the maximum with cleaner, place it in a glass (see photo) and leave the product to work for at least 12 hours.
4 – If you took care to clean your glassware before, you can recover the product.
5 – Rinse your glassware well.

Cleaning tip

Start by draining the stagnant oil from your glassware.

Your diffuser is on, pour a few drops of 90° alcohol into the glass. Very delicately place a fine rod (e.g. a wooden skewer) at the mouth of the vertical nozzle, without inserting it, to expel the impurities towards the bottom, and thus free the tube and allow a perfect fluidity again. Repeat the operation and then discard the excess alcohol.

Bubbles in the glassware of the diffuser?

If you notice bubbles at the bottom of your glassware, in general, this phenomenon is due to the narrowing of the passage of essential oils in the central tube.

1 – If your diffuser has never worked (first use), it is likely that the tube has been welded too low: this is a manufacturing defect.

2 – If your diffuser has already worked, it is likely that a deposit of essential oils has formed at the bottom of the glassware. This deposit will prevent the oils from going up into the tube. Your glassware must be cleaned.
