The Desert Mist Premium Starter Kit is is the perfect Young Living starter kit for those looking to add a simple-to-use and beautiful diffuser to their health and wellness lifestyle. The Desert Mist Diffuser can be used as a humidifier, atomizer, and aroma diffuser in one stylish product. Designed with an eccentric Moroccan trellis in mind, the Desert Mist Diffuser provides a soothing, exotic, and stylish element in any space. Help enhance your natural environment by replacing harmful household fragrance chemicals with effective, therapeutic grade oils through a cool mist.

This mist diffuser uses ultrasonic frequency technology to generate waves at 1.7 million per second, breaking down high quality oils and water to disperse the beneficial mists into the air. Enjoy the warm glow of the modern design, while filling your home with the scent and benefits of Young Living essential oils. This diffuser diffuses continuously for 5 to 6 hours on high mode, up to 8 hours on low mode, and 10 hours while in intermittent mode. You can also choose from 11 individual light settings, including a beautiful candle-like flicker mode that adds ambiance to any room.

Essential oil diffusers work by adding water to the device’s reservoir, then adding drops of your favorite essential oils. Once turned on, the diffuser will work to create a mist with the oil and water, which is dispelled into the air, releasing wonderful smells and health benefits for your whole family! Simply breathing in this mist is a form of aromatherapy that is extremely effective for so many uses. Try using a diffuser in any room.

We use them to make our house smell good, to combat illness in every family member, especially kids, to support focus, concentration, or motivation, to help little ones sleep, and to support overall wellness and immunity . If you’re a beginner, try using a single oil. The ones that pack a lot of punch and offer versatile benefits are lemon, lavender, and frankincense. Remember that with high quality oils, a little goes a long way, and only a few drops should be sufficient to create the desired effects. For this reason, it’s important to always uses oils from trusted sources like Young Living.

How to use the Desert Mist Diffuser

It’s important to take care of your diffuser and use it in the way it was designed to be used. The Desert Mist diffuser is a high quality product that will last for years if maintained correctly.

  • Take off the decorative outer cover, and the inner lid of the diffuser.
  • Ensure that the basin does not have any water in it.
  • Turn the unit onto its side and insert the power adaptor plug securely into the jack, found at the bottom of the unit. Once installed, the cord should be able to rotate freely over the air intake vents.
  • Put the unit on a hard, flat surface such as a wood floor. Ensure that the cord exits between the feet of the unit.
  • Turn the diffuser so that the buttons face you.
  • Put water into the reservoir. Ensure that the level does not go over the water fill line.
  • Add the right amount of essential oil. For most circumstances, 8-10 drops is appropriate.
  • Put the lid back on, aligning the groove on the lid with the half circle feature on the outer surface of the reservoir (above the buttons). Make sure that the lid is flush on the basin to prevent leaking.
  • Replace the decorative outer cover.
  • Plug the power adaptor into a power outlet.
  • Press the On/Off button to switch the unit on.
  • The unit should produce mist, and the LED light should be on.

How do I use this product (how much water and how long will the mist spray last?And how much oil do I need to use

It is around 400ml and there is a red indicator in the dew drop which you must not exceed the level. The mist will normally last about 4 hours and for the drops of oils, do you have a specific use? Many use it to create a comfortable atmosphere, and that will need around 5 to 6 drops.

Does it automatically shut off when the water level gets low ?

Yes, when the water levels are low, the diffuser will automatically shut off.

Does the box have the the 5ml tangerine and 5ml peppermint that comes with it?

No it is just the essential oil diffuser

Can it be run cordless, does it have batteries? Or, does it need to be plugged in to work?

Unfortunately the diffuser is cordless and will need to be plugged into an outlet to work and diffuse essential oils.

Does that come with the one year warranty?

Yes, you would only have a warranty if you purchased the diffuser directly from Young Living- not through a 3rd party site like Amazon.

I have a two story house. Will this be strong enough for both or will I require two separate ones?

We would recommend getting 2 essential oil diffusers to cover that wide of a range.

How tall is the Desert Mist Essential oil diffuser?
Does the water make a gurgling noise when on? I have tried 3 different diffusers and they all have made a gurgling dripping water noise.

The water doesn’t make a gurgling noise nor a water noise, but you do hear the steam a little bit. It hasn’t bothered my husband or me and we are light sleepers. I hope this helps. It seems a bit crazy the price on this because it is all plastic, but it seems to work very well.

  • Drain the diffuser. Make sure all liquid is removed.
  • Dip a cotton swab in vinegar, and then use it to clean any small spots and corners of the device. Continue until you’ve removed any spots that you see.
  • Rinse everything with clean, preferably diluted, water and then empty again.
  • Dry with a cloth or cotton balls, or set aside on a drying cloth to air dry.
