TWIS HOLIDAY DIFFUSER OILS
TWIS developed these 100% natural and pure diffuser oils specifically for winter and specifically the upcoming holiday season. We hope they will make your winter and holidays brighter and more festive.
These oils should be burned in an inexpensive ($11) 5"+ (height) ceramic essential oil diffuser (see below for links of a few that we own that work perfectly with our oils). Smaller more inexpensive 3"-4" high diffusers ($9) may cause the oil to burn too quickly, as will those made of soapstone.
While manufacturers often say to add a teaspoon of water to your diffuser, DO NOT ADD WATER as the water will boil and splatter the oil outside the ceramic vessel and create an oily mess.
While these oils may also be used as perfumes, we designed them to be activated by the heat of a tea light in a ceramic diffuser to scent rooms (and sometimes entire floors of homes and apartments) for several hours even if only burned for 30 minutes.
DIRECTIONS: First, using a 1 ml pipette (supplied), place 1-2 ml of oil in the ceramic well on top of diffuser. After the oil is in the ceramic well, THEN light a tealight and place it inside the ceramic diffuser. With experience you will no longer need the pipette and can pour the oil directly from the bottle. You probably won't need to burn off more than the sample sizes we offer (0.85 ml) in order to scent your home or apartment. The remaining oil may be reused if desired, but since the important volatiles are consumed within 15-20 minutes after the oil is heated, we recommend wiping the diffuser clean and recharging with more oil.
These 100% natural and pure essential oils and absolutes are quite strong and really pack a punch, unlike the chemically scented holiday candles you see in every mall in America. As such, you will see a small plume of smoke consisting of volatile natural compounds rising above the oil once it gets hot enough (5-10 minutes). This is completely normal.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE FLAMES UNATTENDED. THE TEALIGHT WILL LAST ROUGHLY 2.5 HOURS, BUT THE OIL WILL NOT, SO THE CERAMIC DIFFUSER MAY CRACK. YOU CAN ALWAYS BLOW OUT THE TEALIGHT AND LIGHT IT AGAIN LATER USING THE SAME OIL.
IN GENERAL, IT IS WISE TO PLACE THE DIFFUSER IN A PLACE WHERE NO ONE WILL PLAY WITH IT.
DO NOT PLACE IN AN AREA WHICH CAN BE REACHED BY SMALL CHILDREN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.
TWIS offers our diffuser oils in 15 ml (1/2 oz) and 30 ml (1 oz) sizes. These will shipped in either brown or cobalt blue essential oil bottles (Boston bottles) that will resist degradation of the oils due to ambient light. The caps are made to be resistant to the longer-term corrosion effects that strong essential oils could have on certain plastics.
As with all our natural perfumes and diffuser oils, if you get the oil on your clothing, it may take two full wash cycles to remove the fragrance. This has happened to us, so we have first-hand experience of this effect on clothing although we admit we often enjoy it.. : )
Below are two links to Diffusers on Amazon that are readily available and will work very well with our oils if used according to instructions above.
