Reed Diffusers provide a nice aroma around the clock and are very low maintenance. They do not require a flame or an outlet to release nonstop fragrance throughout your happy place.

Below there are directions to using a reed diffuser and tips for best practices and locations for your reed diffusers.

How to Use a Reed Diffuser 

  1. Remove the cap from the amber bottle. 
  2. Put the rattan reeds inside the amber bottle and arrange them artfully. Flip them whenever you want a burst of fragrance. Do it over a trash can or sink to catch any oil drips. Keep in mind that flipping the reeds more often will cause the oil to evaporate more quickly.
  3. Place the diffuser out of reach of pets, children and anything that might cause it to spill over. Put a placemat or coaster underneath it to catch any oil drips if you’re worried about damaging the surface below.
  4. Once you notice the oil has evaporated, clean out the bottle with soap and water and let it dry (otherwise the water will repel the oil!). Then fill it again with a few ounces of oil and store the bottle. You’ll get a better aroma if you start fresh instead of adding to old oil.
  5. Change the reeds whenever you change the oil. Reeds get dusty and clogged with oil over time, and regularly replacing them will ensure you have the strongest fragrance possible.
  6. If you’re going on a trip or will otherwise be away from the house for a while, flip the reeds before you leave and again when you get back for a fresh-smelling home.

Best Locations for Reed Diffuser

I recommend placing your reed diffuser in a hallway or in the entrance to a room or any area that has good airflow. The air circulation created by daily traffic will help disperse the aroma, allowing you to pick up the scent every time you enter and leave the room or walk through the hallway. Use more reeds for larger rooms so that the scent will be strong enough for the space.
