A Beginner's Guide to Reed Diffusers

Even the most beautifully decorated home is not as welcoming to guests if it does not have a pleasant scent. There are many choices available for adding fragrance to a home, from air freshening spray to scented candles. However, if you are looking for a safe and long-lasting way to add relaxing, enjoyable fragrance to every room of your home, the best option is a reed diffuser.

Reed diffusers use the simple concept of evaporation to move the fragrance from scented oils into the air. A glass vase or bottle is used to hold several ounces of oil, and a number of long, thin reeds are placed into the neck of the glass container. Because the reeds naturally wick moisture throughout their length, they will pull the oils up from the reservoir and slowly evaporate them into the air. This allows the slow diffusion of scent into a room over weeks or months using only a small amount of fragrance oil.

Because reed diffusers use no heat or flame, they are safe to use continuously as a part of your home decor. Many people who use reed diffusers use one in several rooms of the home, allowing them to create a scent-scape of different aromas throughout the house. For example, a clean cotton scent is a welcome addition to a bathroom or laundry room, whereas you might want a warm, comforting scent in the family room and an invigorating citrus scent in the kitchen.

If you are getting started with reed diffusers for the first time, you should consider purchasing a set which includes the reed diffuser base, reeds, and fragrance oil. You can then use the vase or bottle that you have chosen with a variety of different scents in the future. One thing to note is that you will need to replace the reeds from time to time, as they will eventually become less able to wick the oil from the base. Fortunately, the reeds are inexpensive and easy to replace, and the same reed length will work in a variety of different diffusers.
