    I use about 1/2 cup water in my diffuser. So you are suggesting 11-16 drops of essential oil in this amount of water? I’ve only been using 4-6! an eye opener. Thank you for all the recommended combinations on this site and at the individual EO sites. Very helpful. David and Sara are my favorite herbal and essence people!
