A diffuser is a great way to add constant fragrance to your home. The reeds soak up the oil and the scent is dispersed into the air. They work really well in an area that you want to keep smelling nice and they look lovely as well. I suppose one of the big advantages of a reed diffuser is that there is no flame involved and they of course can be left unattended in your home. Your diffuser may come already with oil in the vessel or the oil can be packaged separately, which means you will need to add a few drops into the vessel before you add your reeds. It is a hassle free process. Just store your oil in a cool dark place and add a few drops to your vessel to maintain your lovely fragrance. You will need to dip your sticks into your vessel and give them a minute to absorb the oil. The saturated ends need to be in the air allowing the reed diffuser to naturally permeate your space. As the fragrance evaporates into the air, your home or office will be filled with a luxurious, subtle scent.
We recommend that the reed thickness is about 3-4mm as thicker reeds absorb more oil and your diffuser will not last as long. The more sticks you have, the more scent you will be able to get. You should also go for a narrow bottle neck as the wider ones allow the oil to evaporate directly in the air. The quality of the oil is very important when choosing your diffuser as natural essential oils as a base is a superior product.
A couple of tips on how to use your reed diffuser.
- It’s a good idea to place the diffuser on a coaster as it can drip and damage a surface.
- Place it in a high traffic area as the circulation will spread the fragrance through the room
- Remember to flip the reeds for more fragrance and especially before going on holiday so that you are welcomed home by an amazing scent.
- Its important to clean your diffuser vessel with soap and warm water before re filling the oil.
