The question of many, where to put your diffuser oil? This is a normal question to ask when you want to get the most benefit from diffusing oils. The right place marks the starting point for a great result with your favorite essences. Everything goes hand in hand, and there you must take into account whether the space is small or large, with or without ventilation, among several other factors.

In this article we will talk about where to put your essential oil diffuser. It will be in the center, in a corner or perhaps near the ventilation. I’m sure those options have crossed your mind.

But you must know the position will depend on where you want to have your oil diffuser. Let’s look at the most common places and answer these questions.

Where should I put my essential oils to diffuse in the room?

When it comes to your room, the best thing to do is to place the oil diffuser in the center. This will achieve a better and more equitable coverage of the perimeter radius that cover your essential oils in a diffuser.

In addition, this location keeps it at the necessary distance from windows or the heating system. Remember that an oil diffuser does not perform well when exposed to direct sunlight and near ventilation.

As an additional tip, if you have a ceiling fan in your room, it should be turned off when the diffuser is in operation.

In case you can’t have it in the center of your room, due to lack of plug, try to keep it away from what was mentioned above. An oil diffuser should also not be placed against the wall. This reduces the positive impact of essential oils, as they hit the wall and do not disperse effectively into the air.

If you are going to place it on a table, be careful, it is better to do it where the TV is. It is not recommended that you do this near you, as in your sleep you may hit it and throw it away. Make sure it is in the middle or as close to it as possible.

Where should I put my essential oils in the living room?

If you want to enjoy your essential oils with an extra diffuser, a good place is the living room. This is where the family usually meets or gets a view, and there is nothing better than having clean, pleasant and healthy air to breathe.

A good place to put your oil diffuser is on the center table, but only if you don’t usually put your feet on it. Accidents must be avoided.

To keep it in a safer place, where it won’t spill or you can throw it away, put it near the floor or on the floor itself. This will make the most of the essential oils in a diffuser. Keep in mind that the lower your nose is, the better air you will receive. However, if you place it above your nose, you will not get the same benefit.

What is safe is that you should put it on a solid surface and always with a towel underneath. Why? Because an oil diffuser works with water and can spill drops on the table or floor where you place it.

The designs you will find in the diffuser market are very varied. Some can even be decorative, so you will be tempted to place them in plain sight. And yes, you can do this, but for the best impact of the properties of essential oils, they should always be under the nose.

Additional tips and points to remember

As it is an oil diffuser, we want to leave you some advice, so you can take it into account.

The essential oils in a diffuser must disperse a soft mist, and not load the air with much humidity. For this you must buy a high quality oil diffuser, otherwise the plastic can erode very quickly with the oils. That is something you want to avoid.

On the other hand, the placement of the diffuser must be correct so that the air you breathe is the right one. If it is too close to your nose you will not receive the air properly and you will feel it somewhat uncomfortable.

Don’t forget, keep the diffuser away from sunlight, put it at least 3 feet from your bed, use a towel if you put the diffuser on a table. Use safe places where you can’t knock them down by accident, whether it’s you or any children you have at home.

A Young Living Essential Oil diffuser is a device that allows you to combine water with a minimal amount of  YL essential oils, for the purpose of dispersing a mist into the air, offering many aromatherapy benefits.
