How To Use a Diffuser

Rose oil 325 Mhz.

How to use: Using the Diffuser: The Young Living Diffuser consists of an air pump, an oil well base, and a glass nebulizer connected by a flexible air tube. Attached to the air tube is a flow control valve. You can set the pump on the floor or under a table so that it is out of sight. For your convenience, you can attach the pump to an appliance timer so it will turn of and off automatically.

Assembly: Carefully remove the parts from the packaging. Connect one end of the clear plastic tube to the air pump outlet and the other end to the air inlet of the well. Place the glass nebulizer over the jet.

Operating Instructions : Pour 15 to 20 drops of oil directly into the well approximately one-quarter inch deep. You only need enough oil for the mist to start coming through the top of the nebulizer. You may wish to place the bottle of essential oil upside down in the well located next to the nebulizer. Be sure that the plastic orifice (drop reducer) is still in the bottle opening. Push down on the switch that is attached to the electrical cord. Turn the knob on the flow control valve until the arrow points in the direction of the tube.

How much oil will be used?: Thicker oils will diffuser more slowly than thinner ones. You can leave a bottle of thicker oil upside down on the well because it diffuses slowly. Thinner oils should be poured directly into the well because they diffuse quickly. Note: Never add water to oils or thin them with another substance. This could clog the jet and possibly alter the oil’s effects.

Changing Oils: You can change from a single oil to a blend or from a blend to a single. Simply allow the first oil to be completely diffused. If there is too much oil left to diffuse, use the enclosed eyedropper to return it to its bottle.

Mixing Oils: Avoid mixing two or more blends, as this may change the desired results. A single oil may be added to a blend, or two single oils may be mixed together and diffused. Avoid using vegetable oils such a V-6 Mixing Oil, massage oils, or other vegetable-based oils in your diffuser. Oils of this thickness may clog the diffuser.

Cleaning the Diffuser: Disconnect the plastic tubing from the air outlet on the well. Remove the glass nebulizer and clean it with soapy water or rubbing alcohol. Seal both ends of the nebulizer and shake. Rinse with water or alcohol. Let dry completely. Use a blow dryer on low heat for quicker drying. Thoroughly clean the inside of the well with rubbing alcohol or soapy water.

How long should a diffuser be used?: In the home, a diffuser may be used for any length of time-anywhere from 5 minutes to continuous use. Short periods of 5 to 15 minutes are recommended for anyone who is experiencing oils for the first time. In large offices or commercial areas, the diffuser should be used for 15 to 30 minuets at a time until everyone in the area becomes acquainted with the oils. After that point, it may run continuously.

Cautions: The glass nebulizer should always be placed over the jet before starting the diffuser. Low grade oils or “perfume essences” may clog the air jet. The diffuser should be placed on a steady surface that is protected in case spills occur.

Troubleshooting: When a diffuser is functioning properly, you can see oil being projected through the glass nebulizer as it turns into a mist. If this is not happening, check the following: No air output. Be sure the pump is plugged into an active electrical socket and the tubing is properly attached. Check to make sure that the switch on the electrical cord is pushed down, and the knob on the control valve is turned with the arrow pointing to the tubing. Make sure there is oil in the well or in the bottle.

Biofrequency and Disease

Frequency is a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two points. Every living thing has an electrical frequency.

 A “frequency generator” was developed in the early 1920‘s by Royal Raymond Rife, M.D. He found that by using certain frequencies he could destroy a cancer cell or virus He found that these frequencies could prevent the development of disease and others could destroy disease.

Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cheney, WA developed equipment to measure the biofrequency of humans and foods. He used this biofrequency monitor to determine the relationship between frequency and disease.

Measuring in megahertz, it was found that processed canned food had a zero Mhz frequency; fresh produce measured up to 15 Mhz; dry herbs from 12-22 Mhz; fresh herbs from 20-27 Mhz. Essential oils started at 52 Mhz and went as high as 320 Mhz which is the frequency of rose oil. A healthy body typically has a frequency ranging from 62 Mhz to 78 Mhz, while disease begins at 58 Mhz. The frequency for cancer is 42 Mhz.

For years, research has been conducted on the use of electrical energy to reverse disease. Scientists in the field of natural healing have believed there has to be a more natural way to increase the body’s electrical frequency. This led to the research and subsequent discovery of the electrical frequencies in essential oils. Clinical research shows essential oils, having the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, can create an environment in which microbes cannot live.

Unhealthy substances cause lowering of frequencies. In one test, the frequencies of two individuals, the first a 26 year old male and the second a 24 year old male were measured at 66 Mhz each. The first held a cup of coffee in his hands (without drinking any) and his frequency dropped to 58 Mhz in 3 seconds. He put the coffee down and inhaled an aroma of essential oils. Within 21 seconds his frequency had returned to 66 Mhz. The second man took a sip of coffee and his frequency dropped to 52 Mhz in the same 3 seconds. However, no essential oils were used during his recovery period and it took 3 days for his frequency to return to the initial 66 Mhz. Another individual droppped his frequency from 65 to 48 Mhz when he held a cigarette. When he smoked it his frequency dropped to 42 Mhz, the same frequency as Cancer.

Another interesting aspect of this study was the influence of thoughts on the body’s electrical frequency. Negative thoughts lowered the measured frequency by 12 Mhz. Frequency was raised 10 Mhz with positive thoughts and prayers, and meditations increase our frequency by 15Mhz.
