How long should I use my diffuser with Bliss Essential oils?
We recommend 20-30 minute intervals with your diffuser. You can use your diffuser before bed, but we don’t recommend leaving it on all night (the oil blends are 100% safe to use, we just don’t recommend leaving anything electrical on all night for safety purposes).
How often and how do I clean my diffuser?
Always be sure to clean your new diffuser out well with warm water and some dish soap (and let it dry well) before using it for the first time.
Ideally, your diffuser should also be wiped down and cleaned after each use. First, turn off and unplug your diffuser. Next dip a Q-Tip or a cotton ball in some rubbing alcohol and clean all areas of the diffuser. Dry well. Then you’re ready to diffuse Bliss again!

Are Bliss blends safe to diffuse around my pets?
Certain essential oils have been questionable to diffuse near pets, but the the amount of those oils in each blend is very small. Our lead scientist has pets and diffuses the blends around them, but we recommend speaking to your veterinarian first before diffusing the blends into the air. If you decide to diffuse the oils after speaking with your vet, here are some tips to diffuse more safely around your pet: only use 1-3 drops in a water-based diffuser, diffuse for a short time, make sure your pet cannot knock over the diffuser, and diffuse in an open space where your pet can come and go.
I am pregnant, can I use Bliss Essential?
We don't see any contraindications for pregnant women to diffuse Bliss Essential oils for shorter intervals. In fact, many women love using essential oils during pregnancy especially for calm and sleep. We advise against using essential oils orally, and if used topically, dilute in a carrier oil. We suggest that you consult with your doctor before using essential oils while pregnant.
