Ensure the reed sticks are placed in the vessel

Regarding definition, we can define a reed diffuser as a liquid fragrance and combination of essential oils plus alcohol that are collected in a glass bottle. For the reed to work, reed sticks that are made from rattan, are put into the vessel, hence allowing the fragrance to diffuse through the pores of the sticks. The amount of fragrance that you will get is equally proportional to the number of reed sticks that you place into the glass. The more the sticks, the more the fragrance, while the less the sticks, the less the fragrance.


The number of sticks that you place into the vessel is determined by the preference and strength of the fragrance that you want.


Constantly flip the reed sticks

After you have ensured that the reed sticks are in the vessel, it is advisable that you ensure that you flip them after every one or two minutes. This will ensure maximum diffusion since you will allow the saturated ends to be exposed to the air why those that are dry are soaked in the liquid.

One is encouraged to continuously flip the reeds to the extent that they do not smell any fragrance anymore. Here now you can replace the reed sticks.


Be cautious

It is important that you exercise caution when you are flipping the reeds. This is so because you do not like what to splash the essential oils all over the place. To ensure this, it is advisable that you flip them over the sink or a waste paper basket.



When you are purchasing your reeds, it is important that you take their size into consideration. Ensure that their size equally matches that of your room. If your room is a big one, it is advisable that you go for reeds that have a bigger opening, but if yours is a small room, you are encouraged to go for reed diffusers of a smaller size.



For the best outcome or results, it is good if you place your reed diffusers on a coaster or a glass surface. This is important as it will prevent them from staining your tops or any other appliances that are in the house. Do not place them on wooden tops as essential oils are known to stain wood.
