How are you supposed to inhale?

Our oils are meant to be drawn in the mouth and exhaled through the nose. The action of drawing the mist into your mouth is much like drinking through a straw, in that you draw the mist in and hold it in your mouth without inhaling deep into your lungs. Corked products are not meant to be inhaled into your lungs.

Why exhale through the nose?

Expelling the mist out of your nose is what activates the Olfactory Nodes in your nose. Your Olfactory Nodes are directly connected to the Limbic System in the brain and are associated with the release of neurotransmitters to affect mood. Although your taste buds can play a similar role in their connection to the Limbic System, it is the Olfactory System that plays a larger role in triggering the reaction from the Limbic System.

Whew...that is a lot of information to take in. If you have further questions about it, we totally get it. Send us an email to support@corked.com, and we'd be happy to walk through it with you!

Is this a vape?

Our diffusers are not vapes, or electronic cigarettes, as there is no tobacco, nicotine, or added flavor or chemicals in any of our essential oil blends. Corked diffusers are not meant to be smoking cessation devices, rather a way for someone to engage in portable aromatherapy. If you are trying to quit smoking, we suggest seeking the advice of your primary care physician, as they will know what is best for you and your body.

Why is the light on my diffuser blinking?

This is primarily due to negative pressure in the diffuser. Because the diffuser is activated by drawing through the mouthpiece, if you instead blow into the device (whether by accident or on purpose), it can cause the diffuser to activate in an irregular fashion. For this reason, we recommend that you do your best to avoid blowing any air into the device, as over time that can limit the lifetime of the diffuser.

However, it could be due to overuse as well. Make sure you are doing your best to stay within the usage guidelines, as the diffuser will automatically begin blinking if it's been used to rapidly in succession.

If neither of these seem to be the issue with your diffuser, we would be happy to help troubleshoot with you. Please send us an email at support@corked.com and we'll be ready to take care of you!

How Much Vitamin B12 Is In Each Diffuser?

Currently, our diffusers have 6 times the daily value of Vitamin B12 in the blend. So, while using it, you won't be getting more than your daily value. Since the primary focus of our diffusers is aromatherapy, we added B12 to each recipe as a supplemental ingredient. However, as a supplement, it's a great way to get some of the B12 that your body needs!

How often should I use my diffuser?

We recommend using your diffuser in "sessions" throughout the day. Those sessions should be no more than 3 puffs at a time, and we recommend partaking in no more than 3 sessions a day, for a total of 9 puffs daily. Using your diffuser in this fashion will ensure the proper dosage while also extending the life of your diffuser.

How long do the diffusers last?

On average, our diffusers last between 250-300 puffs. This is based on using them as directed; short puffs from the diffuser, and between 3-9 total puffs per day. At around 3 puffs at a time, and no more than 3 times a day, the average diffuser lasts between 3 and 4 weeks.

Are the diffusers refillable?

Our diffusers are not meant to be refilled, nor should they be. We have crafted each one of the blends to optimize the performance in the diffusers, and a non-proprietary blend will cause the device to perform ineffectively.
