I'm not sure if this is the correct section but it doesn't seem appropriate for the aromatherapy forum.

Does anyone use FOs in diffusers? We now have a diffuser at work that was purchased by a client's relative, this one. It has a water reservoir with a few drops of EO and works as a bit of a humidifier.

I'm not a fan of the scents we have at work but I have a lot of scents that would be nice to bring in. My question is: are standard soaping FOs ok in this sort of diffuser? I saw a thread from several years ago mentioning putting water in a candle warmer then a few drops of EO. Could I count this as the same theory without getting anyone sick?

I have even tried put perfume in my diffuser. But my diffuser is the basic kind in aromatherapy store which is without a water tank.

I think you'll be fine. As long as you don't put highly concentrated FO in a candle warmer and without paying attention to it.
Just remember less is more. FO is very concentrated. A drop at a time. There are people allergic to heavy / heady perfume.

Yes, Fo's shoud work just fine in it. I have one similar and have had no issues. 4-5 drops is usually plenty. At least for me.

I bought a diffuser at Christmas and I'm using my FO's in it, just don't sit too close to it when it's on, as it can be a bit strong. I've only used about 6 drops in it.
