Reed Diffuser How To and Tips
What is a Reed Diffuser?
Reed diffusers are a great way to add constant fragrance to your home. The diffuser reeds soak up the fragrance oil and disperse the scent into the air. They last until all the fragrance oil evaporates. Diffusers work really well in places where you always want it to smell nice but can't keep an eye on a candle. Some great locations are in a foyer so you and your guests are greeted with a beautiful fragrance when you walk in, or in a powder room, closet or basement where you always want it to smell nice but you can't always keep an eye on a candle.
How to Set Up a Reed Diffuser
Some diffusers are packaged with the oil already in the vessel. If that is the case, simply remove the stopper and insert the reeds. If the oil is packaged in a separate bottle, add just a few ounces of the oil to the vessel and keep the remaining oil in the bottle in a cool, dark cabinet. The oil will stay fresh longer in a tightly sealed container. When necessary, simply add a few more ounces of oil to the diffuser vessel to maintain the fragrance.
Use caution when inserting the reeds as sometimes the level of the fragrance oil can raise enough to spill out the top of the vessel. It always a good idea to set up a diffuser on a non-porous surface and clean any oil drips off the vessel before placing on a delicate counter top.
