Mineral Diffusing Blends~How to Notes
When we created Ohm's Mineral Diffusing Blends our first thoughts were of mineral healing, but ease, convenience and family and pet coverage leapt to mind. Many of our customers have diffusers, know how to use them, so for those who do not we made some notes for you ...
To start ... We recommend any essential oil diffuser with capacity of 200ml-300ml. Capacity refers to how much water your diffuser holds. These diffusers usually have a good upward blowing strength so coverage for a room will be even. Diffusers are widely available, in many capacities, we sell a 200ml and Target has a nice 300ml diffuser. All Diffusers turn off when the water is gone. If you pay for a timer you may not ever use it. To adjust the amount of time your diffusers runs just add less mixture.
Note, very small diffusers 100ml or less capacity are fine but usually have poor full room coverage, drip on tables and are generally messier. I do have a very small diffuser for travel but do not use it at home.
Choose your blend and mix ... Our instructions say 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of blend to 1 quart of water. Tap water is fine if you trust your tap water to be bacteria free etc., if not use filtered or distilled water. Start with 1/2 teaspoon, you can always make it stronger after you have used it a few times. If you are going to diffuse around small children or pets 1/2 teaspoon is a great start.
Let it rest or steep ... We ask that you let it steep. It does not take very long for the blend to mix and infuse the jar of water, 1 hour + . We shake ours a few times to really infuse the water. If some mineral particulate is still suspended it is fine to pour into your diffuser it will not harm the diffuser. Before using again you can wipe out the capacity cavity of your diffuser with a paper towel if the particulate has settled to the bottom.
Pour it in ... Lift the top of your diffuser and pour it in, replace the top and turn it on. That is it. Easy Peasy. If you fill a 200ml diffuser will run 6+ hours and a 300ml diffuser it will run for 8+ hours.
When and how often ... We can make recommendations but we encourage everyone to get into their own cycle, strength and usage pattern. Below are some general guidelines for each blend.
Changing Blends ... If you are using the same diffuser for multiple Blends just pour the unused blend back in the jar. Wipe your diffusers cavity out with a paper towel or kitchen towel.
Allergy is nice anytime you are having allergic issues, year around and seasonal. Maybe use Allergy for a couple of hours in the beginning as many days as you'd like. For pets, maybe start with 1/2 teaspoon to a quart of water, and use it for a couple of hours around them 3-4 days a week. If you think they need more increase, the strength, the time or the days. The Ohm pugs love this formula for their allergies.
Elements is a great evening or overnight formula, especially if you have not taken a Ohm mineral bath. If you are healing from a health issue or are lacking minerals you may get tired and sleepy using Elements blend. This means your body is healing and that is a great thing. Our general instructions apply.
Catch & Release should be used at the start of any virus and used until symptoms are relieved, off and on in 3 hours increments. If you feel better after using Catch & Release for just a bit, GREAT but use the blend for a day or so afterward to make sure you are over the illness. If your symptoms worsen increase the strength. Also, alternate between Elements and Catch & Release while sick, it will encourage healing and body strength.
Using essential oils with Ohm Mineral Blends ... Our blends are intentionally fragrance free. We recognize some just want a neutral experience. If you love essential oils for healing or just the wonderful aroma they provide please add any to your blend. We encourage you to be careful around pets when diffusing essential oils, many are very harmful to pets.
Hope these heal all they touch,
