Is it normal for my diffuser to spark or glow when I plug it in?
If the cord is already plugged into the wall then hot electricity will be travelling from the outlet to the diffuser, this will cause a rapid draw of power when plugged in which results in a slight glowing around the cord when entering the diffuser outlet. This is normal and comparable to static electricity. If you are experiencing this then we recommend to plug the diffuser outlet in first before plugging the power point into the wall which will resolve the issue.
Is this safe for children?
Essential oils are considered too strong for use on babies’ skin (0-24 months) and can be overwhelming on their developing systems. When using in a diffuser, use fewer drops then that for an adult (eg. 2-3 drops). See our ECO. Little range for appropriate, kid-friendly blends. Read more about Aromatherapy for Babies and Children and see our FAQ page for which essential oils to avoid.
Is this safe to use around pets?

Can I ingest this oil?
