  2. SINCE I NEVER USED A SPRAY NOR EVER USE A DIFFUSER. AFTER ADDING THE ESSENTIAL OILS DO YOU JUST FILL THE REST WITH WATER? I ALSO HAVE THOSE KIND OF DISES THAT YOU PUT A TEA LIGHT CANDLE IN AND THE WAX MELTS ON TOP. CAN THESE OIL BE USED IN THIS & THEN USE
    A CARRIER OIL TO FILL?? PLEASE ADVISE. JUST STARTING OUT.
