Here are some FAQs to help keep your diffuser clean and your oils smelling great.  Can I use one diffuser for all of my oils? Yes! No need to own a million diffusers (unless you want to) but one can be used for all of your oils. You can mix oils right in the diffuser too.

Posted by Micki Mutch on

Posted by Micki Mutch on

Alright, I'm sitting down to write this post after having met with a friend and it bubbled out of me. She encouraged me to share the background of how The Olfactory Diffuser came to fruition as it completely lights me up. So here goes!  Gather round, it's story time!
