A Day in the Life of an Oily Family

How I wish I’d been taught to be an oily family when I was making my home from the start!

I’d love to have you come on in! Welcome to our home!

Here’s what it’s like to live this oily life.

Wake Up!

Good morning!

We love how the vitamin D tastes! It just melts on our tongues. Yum!

Ever wonder what using Young Living really looks like? What an oily family really does with all those oils? Here's your chance!

I don’t know about you, but we just don’t drink enough water if we aren’t super intentional about it.

So, we fill up our water bottles first thing (we’ve been loving these bottles!) and put a drop or two of Lemon oil in there to help boost our immune system and help us drink more water.

In the Kitchen

We start our morning in the kitchen cleaning up after breakfast.

What I love about Thieves Dish Soap is how concentrated it is. We get lots of bottles from one!

It also knocks out grease like an old pro.

With two boys and a dog, killing germs and cleaning dirty hands is important.

Being able to split this one soap into four is even better.

I just grabbed these foaming hand soap bottles from Amazon, poured a fourth of the concentrate in, and filled the rest with water.

Want to guess how many cleaners we had in our house before Young Living?

After clearing out the old and replacing the new I later found 14 bottles in the basement, so…

No telling what we were doing with all those cleaners!

This one does it all.

Diffusers

We need the house to smell nice, these homeschooled little nuggets need to focus, and mama needs some chill.

So, we diffuse…all day long!

We had lots to choose from, but Desert Mist is my fave because it’ll diffuse 12 hours.

I’ll put Purification blend in the boys rooms because boys stink and Purification fixes that.

I’ll add something cozy in my room like Orange and Idaho Grand Fir to boost immunity and purify the air, and then some GeneYus from the KidScents line in the homeschool room for the boys.

Isn’t the Desert Mist so pretty?!

It comes with one of our starter kits, too!

Shower/Get Ready

Here’s a quick rundown of what we’ve got going on in the bathrooms fully transferred over to Young Living.

Zero synthetics. No pesticides. Absolutely no filler or fragrance!

How’s that for hormonal strength?!

This is for Mama, Daddy, and boys:

  • Deodorant
  • Bath/Shower Gel
  • Oral Care
  • Makeup & Remover
  • Shaving Oil
  • Haircare
  • Beard oil
  • Perfume
  • Hormone support
  • Skincare
  • Anti-aging
  • Maximum Strength Acne Treatment

It’s crazy to think about all of these in the toxic form that looked so harmless before going into our bloodstream.

It’s such a relief to know everything we’re using is truly safe.

Supplements

The drug mindset is to use a specific medicine or whatever it is forever (i.e. if I take a vitamin C tablet today, I’m locked in for life).

We’ve adopted the supplement mindset with Young Living.

We take what we need when our bodies need it, and don’t stress when we don’t.

That’s why we use our Essential Rewards orders to add to our arsenal of health; now it’s there when we need it.

How do I know when to take them?

It tells me on the side of the bottle.

As I’m writing this it’s during the pandemic and it’s winter.

So we’re using Super Vitamin D and other immune boosters from Young Living right now!

Laundry

I’ve long given up on being on top of laundry, but I do feel great about what I use on our clothes!

First of all, Thieves Laundry Detergent dilutes out like crazy, which you can read about here.

That saves us lots each month!

Then, we use this laundry freshener or these safe fabric softeners to make life easy.

It’s crazy how our air quality changed when we got rid of old detergents and softeners!

Ever wonder what using Young Living really looks like? What an oily family really does with all those oils? Here's your chance!

Heading Out with the Family

I’ll pack Young Living Einkhorn granola, water bottles, Young Living sunscreen, Young Living bug spray, and Young Living after sun to make sure we’re ready to go.

Of course we’ve always got those must-haves with kids, like this first aid spray, Owie blend, and lots of bandaids because…kids.

Ever wonder what using Young Living really looks like? What an oily family really does with all those oils? Here's your chance!

This is just a small sampling of the over-the-counters Young Living provides to make our life easier.

We also really rely on the Full Spectrum CBD!

Dinner, Unwinding, and Bedtime

We’ve got our lineup of Vitality oils (those we can ingest) for cooking.

To unwind, the boys’ rooms will get their diffusers refilled with their nighttime oils.

What’s really cool is that since their rooms were diffusing immune boosting and air purifying oils all day, they’re settling down into a an amazing space for optimal sleep.

Of course I keep my standbys in the hall for anything night time can bring:

  • PanAway for when we’ve got growing pains (in the Premium Starter Kit)
  • SleepyIze when it’s tough to fall asleep
  • Seedlings Linen Spray to prep pillows for easy rest
  • Thieves Chest Rub in case I hear the start of a cough in the night
  • Peace & Calming for night time wind down in their diffusers and backs of their necks. (in the Premium Starter Kit)

Easy as Pie

Remember getting your first place?

Running out to grab all of your basics?

This time you get to do it right and save tons of money in the process.

We took advantage of the Essential Rewards program to save a ton and budget best, and boy does it work! You can read all about it here.

If you’re ready to get rolling and can see this lifestyle fitting right into your very own, this is your next step!

If you need a one-on-one conversation, I’d absolutely love to hear from you! Let’s connect by emailing me at andrea@graceblossoms.com.

Top 5 Light Prepper Must Have Items No ratings yet.

Top 5 Light Prepper Must Have Items

Top 5 Light Prepper Must Have Items

My husband works closely with China, and while we aren’t panicking about the new virus, we have been thinking about our top 5 light prepper must have items.

Those guys haven’t left their homes in a month.

Would we have what we needed if that were us?

I’m not so sure I’m 100% on board with the full-on prepper thinking, which is why I’ve labeled this light prepping.

Everyone has to start somewhere, right?

Here’s our top 5.

HanesInk

1. Life Pitcher

We need water, right?

If our source to clean water was somehow cut off, I’d like to know I could give my family one of our most basic needs.

This Life Pitcher would come in handy if the situation warranted it.

2. Immunity Items

Let me be super frank with you.

The immune boosts in the store don’t work.

They have synthetic flavoring, cane syrup, and sugar.

Sugar=lowered immune system.

Not exactly ideal in our current situation, let alone one where we couldn’t get medical attention.

The Thieves line through Young Living is super concentrated but comes in small bottles.

For example…

One bottle of cleaner has 29 spray bottles worth of cleaner!

One bottle of oil is 300 drops!

One foaming hand soap is really three!

In addition, it just makes good sense to get on their Essential Rewards program.

It saves our family over $2,000 per year compared to shopping at the store!

These highly concentrated products last, which is exactly what we’re looking for when preparing for the unknown.

Click the picture below to get your own Thieves Kit.

3. Illness Items

Everything over-the-counter is not only not that effective, but it’s super damaging and immune lowering.

Get these main items in your life that last a good, long while and are highly effective!

Here’s a quick rundown of what our family has used the last three years.

*Note: anything outside Young Living will only further do harm because of chemicals sprayed on plants and/or synthetics added to the final products.

Our family uses the following:

Germs (bacteria and viral): Thieves, Frankincense, Lemon, Inner Defense capsules

Cuts: Lavender, Owie

Chest Congestion: R.C., Raven, Cypress, Breathe Again

Rashes: Lavender, Tea Tree

Stomach Issues: DiGize, Peppermint

Eight of those are in this Premium Starter Kit.

A fast way to have this delivered to you directly: click here.

4. Heirloom Seeds

Keeping heirloom seeds handy in case you’d have to raise your own food is a good idea.

Here are some organic, non-gmo options that will help boost your overall health along with your immunity builders mentioned above.

5. 72 Hour Kit

This has four packs of the must-have items if a serious needs arise.

It will last you three days, and it has all of your basics in one single pack.

This is something I could get on board with, being a light prepper.

I think one of my biggest issues with prepping is imagining a ton of items we may or may not use laying all over the house.

That’s why I love the concentrated Young Living products, the small packages of heirloom seeds, etc.

Final Thoughts

While I may not be fully on the prepper train just yet, I will say having watched the past couple months unfold has made me wonder.

What would our little family of four do if we were bound to our home and couldn’t get out for medical attention?

How would we handle low food, water, or energy?

I may not be lining shelves with canned food just yet, but these five basics could be a way to give us a little peace of mind.

These are the simplest and most important top 5 light prepper must have items for your home in case your family found themselves in need.

Handle Stress for Good

Learn how to handle stress for good with these super simple additions to your wellness routine.

Oils

Because of pesticides and/or synthetics used in every other oil company, I can only in good conscience recommend Young Living.

You can learn more here.

  1. Diffuse: Use your diffuser and choose from Lemon, Lavender, Stress Away or Peace & Calming from your Premium Starter Kit. Diffuse 2-3 drops. My favorites are Lavender and Stress away.
  2. Breathe Deep: Put a drop of Trauma Life or Release in your hand. Rub your hands together. Cup over your nose, and breathe deeply.
  3. Roller Bottle: Repurpose an old 15mL oil bottle or get multiple new rollers here. Add 20-30 drops of your favorite stress relieving oil. Then fill the rest with carrier oil like our V-6 oil. Roll on the bottoms of your feet or on the back of your neck.

Nutritionals

  • ImmuPro: has been specially formulated to provide exceptional immune system support. When it’s combined with a healthy lifestyle and adequate sleep to support the body’s needs (youngliving.com).
  • SleepEssence: Combines lavender, vetiver, valerian, and Ruta graveolens essential oils with the melatonin (youngliving.com).

Sleep

Sleep is hugely important to your overall health as well as how you handle emotional and situational stresses.

Try for sleep around the same time each night. Turn off your WiFi and set your phone to airplane mode to get a better night’s sleep.

Massage Oils

Young Living has 7 different massage oils. I recommend the Relaxation Massage Oil or making a quick DIY with one of the stress-relieving blends mentioned above.

For a quick guide, dilute 1 drop essential oil to 4 drops carrier like the V-6 from Young Living.

Final Thoughts

I encourage you to dig into preventing stress rather than waiting until you’re overwhelmed to grab what you need.

This is why it’s so important to have Young Living essential oils wellness arsenal with Essential Rewards.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, right?

Let’s be proactive to keep our minds sharp, emotions in balance, and stress levels low.

Bag

Can we just pause for a moment and look at how cute that bag is?!

How perfect for spring!

I am excited to give mine to the first new member signing up with their Premium Starter Kit and Essential Rewards using this link in March!

Valor

Valor is commonly referred to as a chiropractor in a bottle.

While I’d never trade it out for an actual chiropractor all together, it has gotten me through some rough times for sure.

This is also an amazing oil to help your emotions and bring courage.

Clarity

Clarity is one of my favorites!

It helps me stay focused and gives me a little energy boost.

I also like to rub it on my temples if I feel the start of a headache coming on.

JuvaFlex

JuvaFlex provides liver support.

It is said that the liver is where we store anger and hate.

Whether you believe that or not, we can all agree it’s a super important part of our health, and we must take great care of it.

JuvaFlex in a veggie capsule will be so kind to your liver and therefore your overall health!

Gentle Baby

Gentle Baby is great for your skin, calming your emotions, and will be something I use on my “mama marks” for sure when my free bottle arrives in a few days!

Thinking of Getting a Premium Starter Kit?

This is your month!

With each new member’s Premium Starter Kit and Essential Rewards combo in March, you’ll get the free bottle of Valor promotion plus a free bottle of Lavender lotion!

That’s just one more quick ditch and switch to a safe product right away!

Know Friends in Need?

When you share with two friends this month, Young Living will give you a $100 thank you check and a 15mL bottle of Dream Catcher.

When you share with four friends, Young Living will give you a $200 thank you check, and you’ll get a lava bead bracelet and special Celebration blend.

Think about it.

You help four new families have four generations of health and wellness and you get a big thank you.

How amazing is that?

How We ATTACK Cough & Congestion No ratings yet.

How we Attack Cough and Congestion
How we attack cough & congestion might surprise you because of how easy it is, but here it is: our fool-proof way to feeling better fast.

How We ATTACK Cough & Congestion

How we attack cough & congestion might surprise you.

We never go to the store, and we’re never given prescriptions.

But this works better than anything we’ve ever tried.

Sam's Club

Supported Lungs

The only pesticide-free essential oils available are all over our home.

We call this our “wellness arsenal” because we believe God made us to be well and created plants for us to use to this end.

The Premium Starter Kit was how we got our family’s start with supporting our lungs.

Taking away all fragrance, cleaners, and replacing them with Young Living’s safe products made a world of difference.

Life and Home

Oils We Use

Raven from the Premium Starter Kit is where it’s at when we have cough and nasty congestion.

We put one drop of Raven in four drops carrier (fatty oil like avocado, olive, coconut, etc) and rub it over our lungs and throat.

Since consistency is key here, we’ll make a big batch of it and set a timer on our phone or Alexa to remind us.

Lymphatic Drainage

Okay, the name is gross, but goodness does this work!

Here are the simple directions.

Hydration

Lemon from the Premium Starter Kit is super helpful in our reverse osmosis water.

We sip on this in glass only (no one wants to drink petrochemicals from plastic!), and make sure we keep up with this hydration process to help flush all the ickiness out of our system.

Nutritional Supplements

Our biggest successes came when we ditched the drug mindset and adopted a supplement/wellness way of thinking.

What is at the root of this cough and congestion?

Why bandage something without taking care of the cause first?

That’s why we always keep Inner Defense in the house and add it to our Essential Rewards order if we even come close to running out.

The oils in this capsule are a sure fire way to get us feeling better fast.

Neti Pot

Okay, I know what you might be thinking.

And believe me. I feel you.

I have my own love-hate relationship with my Neti-Pot, but let me tell you what.

When you put a drop of Rosemary and a drop of Tea Tree into your solution, the results are unbelievable.

Pro Tip: Use only reverse osmosis water and boil it in a lead-free kettle for optimal safety.

Safe Cough Drops

Dyes, synthetics, and pesticides are doing us zero favors.

Instead, try Young Living’s cough drops or make your own with Thieves and Lemon essential oils from your Premium Starter Kit.

They work amazingly well without anything harming your body while you’re trying to feel better.

Soothe Your Throat

Thieves tea is my jam, y’all.

Steep your favorite organic tea (though I still think Cinnamon tastes best with these oils!).

This helps us break up our congestion.

Then sip to soothe a scratchy throat and enjoy.

Remake as often as needed.

Thieves Tea

  1. Steep tea
  2. Add 1 drop Thieves, 1 drop Peppermint, 1 drop Frankincense, 1 drop Copaiba, 1 drop Lavender, and 2 drops Lemon.
  3. Missing any of those in your oily collection? Just throw in what you do have!
  4. Add honey to taste and waft toward you to open your sinuses and start breathing better!
  5. Sip and remake as many times a day as you need.

We use this to soothe sore throat, stem cough, and for a serious immune boost any time we need it.

Microsoft Azure Certification Training

Diffuse!

Grab your diffuser and some Raven from your Premium Starter Kit.

Put a couple drops in and sit right next to it as you give your body some time to rest.

My favorites for cough are Raven, R.C., Eucalyptus Radiata, and Thieves.

Having a diffuser right next to you as you rest or nap is the best way.

That’s a way to make sure you’re feeling better and staying consistent with your oily routine here, so you can be back to normal in no time.

HanesInk

Final Thoughts

If you’re already living the pesticide-free lifestyle, some of these will be normal for you like taking Thieves Vitality, diffusing, and drinking Lemon Vitality oil in your water.

That’s wonderful!

If not, don’t worry.

It’s something that starts to feel second nature in no time.

I’ll be in touch to place you in our oily education tribe, but feel free to ask any questions first contacting me directly at andrea@graceblossoms.com.

Give yourself grace and rest, friend.

Many blessings to you and quick healing when you’re not feeling well!

I Have my Young Living Premium Starter Kit, Now What?
If you've been thinking to yourself, "I have my starter kit, now what?" after getting your start with Young Living, here's the next step.

I Have My Young Living Starter Kit, Now What?

If you’re thinking to yourself, “I have my Young Living Starter Kit, so now what?” you’re in the right place!

A few easy steps to success are up ahead!

Step 1: Get Connected

The way Young Living works is by word of mouth.

Some of us love this way of life so much that we tell everyone we know and help you all along for the ride.

Get connected with what we call your “upline leader” and go to classes both online and in person.

Scroll through their Facebook group to learn something new to apply each day (or week-go at your pace!) that’s easy to add to your life.

If you don’t know who your upline is or where their education group is, ask the person who helped you get started.

Get a Reference Guide

I gift the Essential Oils Reference Guide app to each person who gets their kit because it makes life so simple!

Look up what your new oils can do.

Find what oils you need for a certain issue.

I love how empowering this app is for all new oilers!

Just Use Them!

Put them on.

You won’t do it wrong.

I promise.

Diffuse them.

Use three or four drops in the diffuser.

Use them, and then use them some more.

Consistency creates a new habit and a healthy home in this case!

Plan Ahead

Essential Rewards is basically the best things since sliced bread, y’all.

Our family saves SO much more with the Young Living lifestyle compared to shopping in store, it’s unreal.

So, use posts like this, your reference guide, or an iTovi scanner (learn more about them here) to create a list of needs in your home.

Ditch-n-Switch

If you signed up for Young Living because you thought a few natural remedies here and there would be great, guess again!

You get SO MUCH MORE than that!

We ditch the bandaid mentality and switch to a wellness and proactive way of thinking!

Let me just save you lots of time here.

Everything in your house that isn’t Young Living isn’t safe at its core.

How do I know?

Because everyone but Young Living puts one or both of the following in their products: pesticides (they spray their plant material) or synthetics (your body is real and doesn’t handle these well).

Go around the house and create a list of all the products in your home and seek out the Young Living product that will let you get rid of it for good.

Or, if you’re in my wonderful tribe of oilers on Facebook, you can use our cheat sheet in the files section!

Final Thoughts

This lifestyle should be simpler and less expensive.

If you aren’t finding this to be true, talk to your upline about diluting (our products are highly concentrated and like buying in bulk), Essential Rewards, and even a DIY here and there.

This is a hugely rewarding lifestyle that comes with a little learning curve, but one that is simple to navigate if you’ve got a great group to learn alongside!

Need a Tribe?

We’d love to have you!

Get your Premium Starter Kit here.

Ask questions to me directly at andrea@graceblossoms.com.

We’ll take you under our wing and help you learn the ropes!

Canker Sore GONE Naturally No ratings yet.

Canker Sore Gone Naturally
Wish you could get rid of a canker sore naturally without breaking the bank and all while making your immune system much stronger? Here's how!

Canker Sore GONE Naturally

We’ve had the best relief from a canker sore naturally with this quick and simple remedy.

It’s saving us a ton with each healing only costing around fifty cents!

Simplest Option

We grab a little organic coconut oil (in a glass jar like this one) and put one drop of Thieves essential oil blend in it.

Thieves is what we call a “hot” oil, so it needs to be diluted.

The standard rule is around 4 drops carrier (what we’ll call the coconut oil) to one drop essential oil.

Be Consistent!

The same way we don’t exercise once and assume we’re at our goal weight, we don’t put one drop on the sore and expect a miracle.

You may, however, notice it shrinks noticeably.

Don’t stop applying!

We find we need to apply it around four times to get rid of it, but we have also been pesticide and synthetic-free for almost four years.

Nutritional Options that ROCK

We get canker sores for a reason, right?

Since we’re all about digging to the root and attacking that rather than just putting a bandaid on the symptom, we add Inner Defense to our wellness arsenal.

Inner Defense is a capsule with Clove, Thyme, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary, and Cinnamon Bark oils in it.

These oils are all measured out in such a way that packs the best punch.

We are always successful knocking out the root cause of a canker sore with Inner Defense!

Oral Care

Two other amazing ways we fight back against the canker sores that pop up from time to time is by creating a healthy environment in our mouths.

Thieves Spray (in the Premium Starter Kit!) and Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash (here) are two unbelievable strong defenses against canker sores in our home.

Even better?

In my oily tribe Facebook page (for my members–I love you so!!), we have a fantastic hack to dilute the super concentrated mouthwash and the spray to get them to stretch and work just as well!

Final Thoughts

Skip the over-the-counter $18 tiny tube of side effects!

Why waste your money on something like that?

You can only use it for one specific use and for a certain amount of time before it expires.

Even worse, those products only tear down your body with synthetic ingredients.

With Young Living products, there so many uses and you’re strengthening your body.

This way you not only overcome this issue, but also to create a stronger immune system the next time a germ is lurking!

Get started on your Young Living pesticide and synthetics-free life here!

You’ll get immediate access into our oily education tribe and you’ll be sent a free essential oils reference guide app so you know just how to use all your oils and what to use when!

Wish you could get rid of a canker sore naturally without breaking the bank and all while making your immune system much stronger? Here's how!

Get Essential Oils + a Toxin-Free Lifestyle Here No ratings yet.

Click HERE for a simple walk through on how to buy the safest essential oils and start a toxin-free lifestyle with Young Living.

Why Young Living Only?

  • Zero pesticides
  • Single distillation
  • Soil hasn’t been touched by pesticides in 50+ years
  • You can go to any farm in the world to see for yourself
  • Zero synthetics
  • Zero fragrance
  • ONLY essential oil
  • BECAUSE YOU ARE READY TO TAKE BACK YOUR HEALTH!

5% Rule

There’s a rule that says companies only have to make sure 5% of the oil in their bottles is actual essential oil to be considered “pure and therapeutic.”

Organic oils can even have synthetics and fragrance added to them under this rule, and do.

Young Living oils are the ONLY oils who never adulterate* their oils and have 100% never changed essential oil.

*I consider spraying plants with any pesticide as adulterating the oil.

Why Care About Pesticides?

Anything you put on your skin is in your bloodstream in 26 seconds.

Choosing an essential oil company outside of Young Living ensures you’ll have those pesticides coursing through your veins as well.

Why spend your money on a temporary fix that makes a long-term problem?

Learn fast truths and how to get the safest oils on the planet.  Add value to your home and budget. Feel better. Live well.

What About Organic Pesticides?

When I say ZERO pesticides, I mean ZERO.

Not even organic pesticides.

Young Living is hand-weeded (or sheep-weeded in some cases like the France Lavender farm!) and this is their above-and-beyond calling they call Seed-to-Seal.

Are They Expensive?

The amazing part about Young Living is the concentration of the oils and over 600+ lifestyle products.

For example, the household cleaner makes 29 spray bottles.

One 15mL bottle of oil has around 300 drops in it.

When you buy a Young Living lifestyle item, you’re adding immense value to your home and saving a ton!

Learn fast truths and how to get the safest oils on the planet.  Add value to your home and budget. Feel better. Live well.

How Do I Know Which Oils I Need?

Most people start with the Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 12 oils, a diffuser, and some samples of other lifestyle products at around half the cost as a bundle/kit.

These 12 oils are called our “Everyday Oils,” and the kit itself comes with a 24% discount on all products for life.

From there, the iTovi scanner {click HERE} and Essential Oils Reference Guide {click HERE) are two must-haves for taking on your new life of proactive living.

How Often Do I Have to Order?

That’s up to you.

Our family can’t possibly pass up the thousands of dollars we save every year with the loyalty program called Essential Rewards (read about it HERE).

You can order once in your whole life and never again, you can order with Essential Rewards, or anywhere in-between.

Do I Have to Sell this Stuff?

Nope.

I personally tell everyone I know (including you!) because it feels like a deep down serious moral obligation to let people know there’s a safe way to live with all the disease in this world. You can be a part of one of the greatest changes in someone’s life, and that’s big.

You decide how and when you share, AND if you do, Young Living will send you a thank you check. No strings. No immediate business you’re roped into. Simply a, “Hey, you helped save a family. Thanks!” bonus check!

What Kind of Diffusers?

Did you know there are two different kinds of diffusers?

1. Ultrasonic

This is your Aria, Rainstone, Feather the Owl, Desert Mist, Lantern, and other diffusers with an ultrasonic plate.

These use ultrasonic vibrations to put oil into the air.

They also have a great humidifying effect, which is especially wonderful in dry weather.

Many people say to watch adding citrus oils into diffusers because they’ll erode.

This is why I choose Young Living medical grade plastic and only Young Living oils. The purity and diffusers matter.

I’ve tried getting cheap diffusers off Amazon, and they eventually fail me every time.

Now, I just save my money and get the real deal through YL to avoid having to constantly replace the others.

2.Atomizing

This is for the AromaLux and any other diffuser with an atomizer.

An atomizer gives you the scent for your home that we have come to love, but it also has therapeutic and healing capabilities.

It breaks down the oil put into it and puts out small particles that are easier for your lungs and body to absorb.

Which Kind of Water?

The instructions always suggest distilled, but what if you’re a diffusing queen like yours truly and don’t want to lug huge distilled water jugs home from the store each week?

Our family chose another route that affects the quality of our water both in our diffuser and that we drink each day: reverse osmosis.

You can get a whole home reverse osmosis (see an example here) or one to place under your kitchen sink (see an example here).

This ensures we are breathing in and drinking in only the best water available sans prescription meds, heavy metals, and other chemicals.

Cleaning Your Ultrasonic Diffuser

Best practice is rinsing and wiping your diffuser after each use. The type of deep clean that follows is suggested 1-2 times per month.

  1. Turn off and unplug 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, wipe it clean, and dry up the excess water with a soft cloth.

Cleaning Your Atomizing Diffuser

  1. Turn off and unplug diffuser.
  2. Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and swab to clean ALL areas of the diffuser.

Troubleshooting

  1. Check for power: if the light turns on, the power is working.
  2. Listen for fan: fan should be audible when diffuser is working.
  3. Make sure air vent isn’t obstructed or damaged.
  4. Check ultrasonic plate: if no bubbling is seen after water is added, the ultrasonic plate may need to be replaced.
  5. Check lid: if it’s not flush with the body, it won’t work properly.
