Reed Diffusers

What are Reed Diffusers?

Reed diffusers are rising in popularity as an great alternative to other forms of home fragrance such as scented candles and melts. Candles and melts will envelop your home in a wave of scent and to create an ambience with its golden light, reed diffusers offer a more subtle and atmospheric aroma where you may not necessarily want the ambience a candle gives.

We love reed diffusers as much as a scented candles or room sprays. We want to tell you a bit more about how to get the very best from reed diffusers, a few tips on how to use them as well as what makes reed diffusers such a beautiful home fragrance product. 

How do Reed Diffusers Work?

Reed diffusers work in a very simple way. Reeds are dipped into the liquid in the jar. The many channels inside the reeds allow the liquid to be absorbed up the length of the reed and their porous nature diffuses the scent in to the air. It’s that simple and the result is a subtle odour that adds ambience to the home.

What Benefits do Reed Diffusers Have?

They are Longer Lasting

Reed diffusers scent much slower than candles. Our 100ml diffuser, depending on temperature and humidity can fragrance a space for up to 12 weeks or more

They Scent Your Home More Gently

Because they diffuse more slowly than a candle, reed diffusers provide a more subtle aroma. Making them great for smaller spaces or in rooms where you want a more delicate scent.

 No Flame, No aerosol, No Power, No Residue

A reed diffuser is one of the simplest of home fragrance products. It doesn’t need a flame to work (so no need to keep an eye on it). No aerosols, and requires no power to work. Simply place the reeds in the fragrance and you are good to go. What’s more, reed diffusers leave behind no residue so you can leave them to diffuse scent and not worry about anything at all.

How to Take Care of Your Reed Diffuser

Reed diffusers are very simply to use. Remove the metal screw cap and plastic plug then screw the metal cap back onto the bottle. Immerse your reeds into the liquid and allow them to soak up the oil. Once they have absorbed some of the oil, flip them to begin the release of the beautiful scented home fragrance.  

You’ll need to flip your reeds regularly, we suggest every few days, to keep the scent fresh and fragrant. Keep in mind that the more your flip, the quicker the oil will evaporate.

To get the most out of your reed diffuser we suggest you place it somewhere with good air flow, perhaps near a vent or a window. A good air flow ensures the fragrance fills the space, scenting the entire room with the fragrance of your choice. Be careful not to place your diffuser too close though. As being right in front of/or next to an open window or vent may speed up the evaporation of the fragrance.
