An intermittent diffuser will turn on and off every few minutes. In the case of the Brevi diffuser, it's 5 minutes on and 5 minutes off for 10 hours. It also has two continuous settings: 2 hours and 5 hours.
The intermittent setting helps you conserve your essential oils. Nice! That's always a good thing!
Here's a couple of ways our family uses the intermittent setting:
- At night we use the 10 hour setting and put Serenity or Lavender in the diffuser for sleep support.
- During the day I will put my precious Litsea essential oil in the 10 hour diffuser.
- If we don't feel that great, I will intermittently diffuse OnGuard and Lemon essential oils for 10 hours.
- During the week, we may need some extra emotional support as we go about our busy lives, so I will put Adaptiv or Balance in the Brevi diffuser for 10 hours...or put it on the 5 hour setting, full force! ;)
