doTERRA Diffuser Info: Ace vs. Lotus

One of my favorite products from doTERRA is my diffuser! With cold & flu season upon us this is a must!  I have been diffusing On Guard in the morning before school to arm my kids for school and then again after school to kill all the stuff they brought home.  I have also diffused Breathe for my little girl at night to help her runny nose.  Love diffusing the oils!!  I have put some information together about the 2 diffusers available from doTERRA and some of the oils that we like to diffuse.  Enjoy!

Aroma Ace with On Guard
dōTERRA® is excited to introduce the Aroma-Ace essential oil diffuser, a powerful and compact nebulizing diffuser that provides a more intense distribution of essential oils and is perfect for professional environments such as spas, medical offices, etc.

The Aroma-Ace provides a quick-change system that allows you to change your choice of essential oils at any time without the worries of mixing and spilling. Its easy-to-use timing provides exceptional flexibility and convenience and its output volume control allows you to choose the intensity of your aromatherapy experience.

Aroma-Ace’s state-of-the-art diffusion technology preserves the natural essence and complete therapeutic benefits of essential oils by effectively transforming them into a micro-fine vapor without the use of heat or water. These micro-particles permeate the air and may remain suspended for hours fully intact with all of their natural benefits.

When you purchase the new Aroma-Ace essential oil diffuser, you’ll receive a FREE 15 ml bottle of dōTERRA’s On Guard® protective blend. Enjoy the convenience and flexibility of the most advanced aromatherapy system available.

Tiffany’s Input: LOVE this diffuser! I especially like the ability to control the intensity of the oil being diffused as well as being able to adjust time on and time off. You can let it run all day without having to do anything. For businesses I would recommend getting a Christmas tree timer so that it diffuses just during business hours. It may not be pretty, but it is very functional.

Lotus Diffuser

The Lotus diffuser uses a highly efficient real time atomization technology to effectively diffuse essential oils into the environment. The essential oils are atomized into minute ion particles and active oxygen anions, which are more easily absorbed by the human body than oils diffused by conventional diffusers. dōTERRA® is pleased to be the exclusive distributor of the Lotus diffuser to you and your family.

Tiffany’s Input: I really like the look of this one. When it is on it has this pretty glow and mist flowing out. To run this diffuser you add water into the inside and add a couple of drops of essential oils. The Lotus has 2 settings: run for 1 hour or on for 30 seconds then off for 15 seconds. It must be maintained throughout the day. I have had problems with the mist causing water to leak out and puddle. Bummer. Put it on a pretty dish and no problems.

DoTERRA Essential Oils to Diffuse
(Information taken from from Dr. Sue Lawton’s notes on individual oils)
*Most oils can be diffused-these are some of our favorites*

LIME: Excellent disinfectant, which will not only effectively kill bacteria but it is a natural antiseptic. Lime, like other citrus oils, is effective for calming & stress relief. It is uplifting and stimulating which makes it great for brainstorming and creative thinking. Diffuse lime oil to shake off feelings of lethargy and to help energize the soul.

LEMON: Lemon oil is radiant, uplifting, reviving, and stimulating. Diffuse Lemon oil on a regular basis to eliminate viruses and bacteria that are unfriendly and infectious in nature in the atmosphere of your home or office. Mental clarity is enhanced by simply breathing in lemon oil that has been diffused. Toxic triggers for asthma can be eliminated from the air. Molds can be eliminated from the air space.
Real estate agents report that by diffusing lemon oil for 15 minutes before showing an open house that viewers seem very relaxed and interested in asking questions. Accountants report that when reviewing tax returns with clients in the conference room where lemon oil has been diffused the clients are calmer and more receptive to suggestions on how to change their money management than before being diffused.

GRAPEFRUIT: Grapefruit is refreshing and reviving, helping to alleviate stress, depression, nervous exhaustion and tension. Diffuse grapefruit at home, in the car to lift spirits when loosing weight, moving to a new job, new house, going on vacation or cleaning out closets. Diffuse to alleviate SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

WILD ORANGE: Wild orange brings peace and happiness to the mind and body and joy to the heart which provide emotional support to help one overcome depression. It relieves anxiety, anger, and irritation often because of enhanced circulation and detoxifying of liver, and gall bladder. Wild Orange oil helps us to take a more relaxed approach, encouraging adaptability and the smooth handling of events. As a solid anti-depressant diffuse wild orange (4), Melissa (2), and Peppermint (2)

CITRUS BLISS: Blend of Wild orange, lemon, grapefruit mandarin, bergamot, tangerine, clementine, and vanilla bean extract. Amazing blend that creates an atmosphere of optimism and an expectation of success. Can be worn as a perfume and positively influence people around you and even use in the office to discourage crabby people from approaching.
This blend of citrus oils is special in that there are powerful adaptagens within the chemistry of your body. These oils each provide stimulating and sedative elements depending on what you need. So it can clear your mind and heart and yet be calming at the same time. The group is powerfully anti-depressive and motivating emotionally and healing physically.

BREATHE: Antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, expectorant, cell and tissue repair, asthma relief; using Breathe can give relief from colds, bronchitis, sore throats, sinusitis, coughs and respiratory congestion. Blend of Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, lemon, and ravensara. Diffuse in a child’s bedroom 20 minutes before you put them to bed. In event of infection diffuse in general household areas to prevent others from getting same bug. In room of person with infection set to diffuse 10 minutes every hour round the clock.

PURIFY: Cleansing blend. Purify is an excellent cleansing blend that can be used everywhere: Kitchen, bathroom, car, hotel rooms, fast food restaurants, after a large crowd experience. Blend of lemon, lime, pine, citronella, melaleuca, and cilantro. Diffuse in home, car, hotel rooms, office, everywhere!

PEPPERMINT: Peppermint oil cools emotions and dissipates anger, hysteria and nervousness. It energizes and relieves mental fatigue, increases joy, inspires confidence, and self-esteem. It awakens the central nervous system, stimulates the brain, improves memory, and clarifies thought processes. It increases insight and inspires new thoughts and ideas.

ON GUARD: Activity of all the oils in the Protective blend On Guard are: antibacterial, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-viral, mood lifters, and immune system booster. Blend of Wild orange, clove bud, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. Diffuse in homes or business to kill airborne pathogens, inhibit mold and build immune systems. Have the diffuser going in your home when the kids come home to ward off germs. A basic skills classroom that diffuses On Guard for 15 minutes every 2 hours has reported that not only is there less absenteeism, but the students are generally calmer. Sometimes the trigger to restart the diffuser is that the noise level rises in the classroom.

Check out this additional post about these 2 diffusers at the doTERRA Blog


  1. I have the aroma-ace diffuser.
    When it came, it came with a little bottle attached. Am I supposed to put oil in that and use that little bottle, or just open my oils and use them? Do I need to clean the little white tube between oils?

  2. The Ace does come with an extra bottle. You can use that bottle and add oil to it or make your own blends or you can just add a bottle of your doTERRA oil right onto the Ace. I would recommend cleaning the tube when switching oils. You can also buy extra side pieces so that you won't need to wash off the white tube. I have one for my citrus oils and one for On Guard. I love my lotus to mix it up with different oils blended together.

Slim & Sassy Skinny Wrap

Slim & Sassy Body Wrap!!

I recently came across this on the doTERRA Diamond Club site. It was too great to not share!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: I recently read a suggestion that I thought beneficial... instead of using plastic wrap made of who knows what...use muslin cloth.

I got the recipe from Becky Cox.
5-10 drops S&S
1 tsp FCO.
Combine the two ingredients and rub on "problem area" ( Make sure it is completely absorbed ) then wrap area with regular old plastic wrap! :) Leave on for 20 minutes to as long as the person would like! It detoxes! Its running like wildfire on my team! I have a gal who l lost 4 inches from her first wrap! I teach the regular class intro, and while I am teaching I have a few IPC's wrapping new guests! That way they are feeling it tingle and working as I teach about essential oils. Then I focus on the individual ingredients found in Slim and Sassy and the benefits that they are receiving on top of inch loss! * just remi…

REVEAL Facial System Review: doTERRA Skin Care

REVEAL Facial System-         Tiffany's Review
So, at convention last year (Oct. 2013), I received the new REVEAL facial system with my Convention kit. Last week, yes last week, I decided to finally try it. I am really not a skin care girl, but after trying it, I am starting to change my ways :) In my mind, I had thought to use this product I needed to be standing over the sink, with a dry face, then splashing water everywhere with water dripping down my arms creating a mess that I didn't want to clean up. No thanks. My solutions: use it in the shower!
Here's what I do:  For step 1, I put a pea size amount on my fingers and began massaging it onto my skin. It feels kinda grainy but really soft and silky, and of course, it smells really good :) Really, I could have spent more than the recommended 2 minutes rubbing it all in. It felt very cleansing. Do not rinse off, add step 2.  For Step 2, I added a small amount from bottle #2. This one looks like a clear gel. I used this ri…
