Other than simply inhaling the oils, the easiest and simplest way of putting essential oils into the air for inhalation is to use an aromatic diffuser. A cold air diffuser uses room-temperature air to blow the oil up through a atomizer. This breaks the oils up into a micro-fine mist that is then dispersed into the air. The oils, with their oxygenating molecules, will then remain suspended for several hours to freshen and improve the quality of the air. The anti-viral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties of the oils kill bacteria and help reduce fungus and mold. Essential oils, when diffused, have been found to reduce the amount of airborne chemicals and metallics. Many essential oils, such as Lemongrass, Lemon, our blends of Purify, Citrus Blessing, and Plague Defense are highly antibacterial and are extremely effective for eliminating and destroying airborne germs and bacteria.
When using on a daily basis, we suggest a very low level of diffusion so that the aroma of the essential oil is faintly noticeable, which in a bedroom would only diffuse a few drops daily.
There are times when we want to diffuse to prevent an illness. Intermittent diffusion is suggested where the diffuser cycles on for a time, such as 30 minutes on and 30 minutes off. In our family, we diffuse 5 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Intermittent diffusion is effective and safe for children.
Daily diffusion over many weeks or months may not be in the best interest of most children, as we feel it's important for their immune systems to be challenged so that it learns to fight.
Unlike candles or aroma lamps, cold-air diffusers disperse oils without heating or burning, which can render the oil therapeutically less beneficial and possibly create toxic compounds. Burned oils may become carcinogenic. Research (from
Essential Oil Desk Reference by Essential Science Publishing, Third Edition) shows that cold air diffusing certain oils may:
• Reduce and/or eliminate bacteria, fungus, mold and unpleasant odors
• Improve concentration, alertness, and mental clarity
• Relax the mind and body, relieve tension and clear the mind
• Stimulate neurotransmitters
• Stimulate secretion of endorphins
• Stimulate growth hormone production and receptivity
• Digest petrochemicals on the receptor sites
• Improve the secretion of IgA antibodies that fight candida
• Improve digestive function
• Improve hormonal balance
• Relieve headaches
• Dispel odors
Cinnamon bark, Oregano, and the oils found in our Plague Defense blend were all tested by Weber State University and shown to kill 100% of the airborne bacteria present when diffused into the atmosphere.
Heritage Diffuser atomizers have been carefully engineered for easy cleaning and operating simplicity. We believe that they are perhaps the most "easy to clean" system on the market.
Thick essential oils such as Sandalwood, Myrrh, Patchouli, Vetiver and so on can clog your atomizer. If you do need to use a thicker oil, try diluting it with a thinner oil like Lemon. NEVER diffuse an oil with a carrier oil in it.
Very important: Diffuse only quality oils, some fragrance oils have been diluted with a carrier oil. Our diffusers are designed for 100% essential oils. Carrier oils are too thick and will clog the units. There are some pure essential oils that are thick and resinous by nature, so running a thin oil like lemon, or mixing a thinner oil with the thicker oils will keep these units from getting clogged.
If your diffuser does get clogged or begins to run sluggishly, then a quick clean will fix the problem.
How to clean:
If the unit is not completely clogged you can put a little rubbing alcohol in an empty essential oil bottle and diffuse for a couple of minutes in a closed room (I'd avoid breathing the vapor). If the unit is too clogged to push the air through, then a deep clean will be required.
1. Remove the atomizer attachment from its base. The oil clogs develop in the attachment piece.
2. Once the attachment has been removed, remove the essential oil bottle, but do not remove the straw-like device.
3. Immerse the atomizer attachment in alcohol. A mason jar works great, you can use rubbing alcohol, vodka or ever-clear. Let the atomizer attachment remain completely immersed in alcohol for some time depending on the thickness of the oil buildup or resin. Ten minutes may be enough, but overnight may be better. This should clean the oil resin buildup and will not harm the diffuser.
4. Rinse in warm water and let dry.
5. Once dry, reconnect it to the essential oil bottle and diffuse. Be sure it's completely dry. You don't want water in your essential oils.
1. We have had the Heritage Pro for about a month now. Love it. I didn't want the Whisper b/c of the tubing (I have a 2 and 4 year old and felt like it was too much temptation), but I do love how incredibly quiet the Whisper is. That said, we usually run the Pro on med-low at night and during nap time for my 2 year old, and it doesn't bother him at all. And I've run it in my room on medium, and it's like white noise. It is quieter than my humidifier, for sure. - Kelley
2. I have the Pro and love it. It's very portable and small. I use it all the time all over the house. In fact, I'm considering purchasing a second one. - Stacy
3. We love the Heritage Pro! We've had one for several years. I actually gave it to our son for his family, bought another for us, and then bought one for our other son and his family. It surprises me how little oil it uses when just diffusing at night for sleep or whatever. But, more is used during illness. The versatility of being able to adjust the output and time it is on/off really makes this THE premiere diffuser, in my opinion. And it's such a convenient size for traveling. We always take it when we travel anywhere. Suzie
4. I love the Pro. It's so little. We are trying to de-humidify here in Louisiana! I do agree that it is a great idea to read about them on Amazon. So much info. We have had the air blowing ones, the ultrasonic water ones, and the heated pad ones. They all have their place, but using the Pro overnight has been best for helping with respiratory stuff and allergies. - Mary
5. I have an HEO Pro Diffuser. We had a fire in our house a week ago Saturday. I have been diffusing Purify most of the week. I had a 30 ml bottle of it and started diffusing Saturday night. I had it on all night, all day Sunday and off and on most of the week at 20 min on and about 5-10 min off with the output at about medium (pointing straight up). Sometimes I would turn it off at night, but not always. The bottle still has a good amount of EO in it. I did have to pour it into a 15ml bottle at one point because the tube was too short, but still... there is good amount in the bottle. I'd say a little less than 1/3 of it left. I am surprised that I have as much left as I do. I kept checking it because I thought it would be empty, but it wasn't. I wanted to share this because I know some are afraid to diffuse the oils for fear of 'wasting' them or it using too much. The HEO diffusers use very little oil and are very effective. - Stacy
6. I the Pro diffuser and can attest to the fact that they use very little oil! - Margie
7. Heritage Pro is tops, hands down. I love that it has a timer, variable oil output and works by directly dispersing the oils instead of them being diluted in a mist or heated in some way. Easy to take when traveling, easy to move from room to room if need be, easy to clean. Worth every cent it cost, and then some! - Susie
8. I have both the Heritage Pro and Whisper diffusers. Both are quiet, efficient and carry the oils over a LARGE area. - Laurie
9. I am very happy with the Heritage Pro. I love that it has a timer, variable oil output and works by directly dispersing the oils instead of them being diluted in a mist or heated in some way. It's easy to take with us when we travel, easy to move from room to room and easy to clean. It's worth every cent it cost and then some! - Susie
