How to Use 10ml Fragrance Oils: Diffuser or Oil Burner

When it comes to using fragrance oils in the home, you essentially have two practical options. You can either use an electric diffuser/humidifier or you can simply use an oil burner. In this blog post we're going to cover the two options and how to use them.

How to Use 10ml Fragrance Oils: Diffuser or Oil Burner

First things first, we'll start with using an electric diffuser or humidifier.

How to Use 10ml Fragrance Oils in Your Diffuser

These simple steps will ensure that your favourite aroma fills your space with ease.

Step 1: Choose Your Space

Find the perfect spot for your diffuser. This could be your living room, bedroom, or office—anywhere you want to enhance with a beautiful aroma. For optimal and safe performance, place your diffuser on a level, hard surface.

Step 2: Fill Your Diffuser with Water

Most diffusers require some water to work. Carefully fill your diffuser with clean, room-temperature water up to the indicated fill line.

Step 3: Add Your Favorite Fragrance Oil

Now it's time to introduce the star of the show - your 10ml fragrance oil. Since fragrance oils are usually more concentrated than essential oils, start with a few drops, usually around 3-5. You can always add more if you want a stronger scent. This is entirely down to personal preference and how strong you like it.

Step 4: Start Your Diffuser

Switch on your diffuser and let it work its magic. The enchanting fragrance oil will disperse into the air, enveloping your space with your chosen scent.

Step 5: Enjoy and Adjust

Sit back and take in the wonderful aroma. If the scent isn't strong enough, add a few more drops of your fragrance oil. Remember, everyone's scent preference varies, so find the perfect balance that works for you!

Follow these simple steps for using your 10ml fragrance oil bottle in a diffuser and transform your home or workspace with beautiful, refreshing scents.

If you don't own an electric diffuser but you have an oil burner, then here's a guide on how to use those. I will just say that there is a slight difference between oil burners and wax melt burners, and that's usually simply the size.

People often mistakenly use oil burners for wax melts, which usually results in the wax melts not lasting very long as the tea light is closer to the dish meaning the wax melt gets hotter and uses the fragrance quicker.

Wax melts need to melt, meanwhile fragrance oil in water needs to evaporate, hence a higher heat is often needed. This might mean that if you use a proper wax melt burner for your diffuser oil mix, you might not get as strong of a scent throw.

But here's how you use your 10ml fragrance oils with an oil burner.

How to Use 10ml Fragrance Oils with an Oil Burner

Introduce a wonderful aroma to your living space with our step-by-step guide on using 10ml fragrance oils with your oil burner.

Step 1: Prepare Your Oil Burner

Choose a safe and stable location for your oil burner, preferably on a heat-resistant surface to protect your furniture. Ensure that the area is well-ventilated and away from any flammable items.

Step 2: Add Water to the Bowl

Before adding your fragrance oil, fill the bowl of your oil burner with water. The water acts as a carrier for your fragrance oil and prevents it from burning too quickly.

Step 3: Add Your Fragrance Oil

Now, add a few drops of your 10ml fragrance oil to the water. Start with 3-5 drops, and you can add more later if you prefer a stronger aroma.

Step 4: Light Your Tealight Candle

Place a tealight candle in the designated space beneath the bowl and light it. The heat from the candle will slowly warm the water and oil mixture, releasing the fragrance into the air.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Scented Space

Relax and let the captivating scent of your fragrance oil fill your space. Always monitor the oil burner while in use, and never leave it unattended.

And there you have it! Follow these steps for using your 10ml fragrance oil bottle with an oil burner, and enjoy the charming ambience it creates in your home or office.

So there you go

Hopefully this little guide will help you know how to safely use fragrance oils in your home!
