Reed Diffusers are the perfect way to freshen up a living area without the need for flame from a candle or electricity from an electric melt warmer.
How to use my reed diffuser?
- Place the reed sticks in the bottle's oil and allow them to sit for one hour. By the end of the hour, you should start to notice the sticks slowly absorbing the oil.
- Flip the reeds over to saturate the top part of the reeds that stick out above oil level. This helps to speed up the process of the oil soaking up from the bottom diffusing through the entire reed. Expect a light fragrance to start perfuming your room within 24 hours.
- Place your reed diffuser somewhere suitable in your home in a spot where it won't be knocked over or investigated by curious children or pets.
- Place a coaster or similar underneath to prevent any possible ring stains from oil sliding down the bottle after flipping the reeds, on the surface it sits on. This is especially important for porous surfaces like timber or concrete.
- Do not light the reed diffusers - the oil is highly flamable.
- Ensure your reed diffuser is placed out of reach of children and pets.
- Place on a flat service and in an area where it will not be easily knocked over.
- Keep away from electrical appliances.
- Avoid place diffuser in direct sunlight, as this will cause the liquid to evaporate faster.
How long will my reed diffuser last?
Our diffusers are all hand-poured, and last between 3 and 6 months, depending on the bottle size, and air conditions it is placed in. There are several factors that will affect how long your reed diffuser will last and the amount of fragrance it releases.
- Number of reeds used (more for a stronger throw, less for a subtle throw). Please note the number of reeds used is dependent on the size of the room.
- The airflow around your diffuser (if close to a fan, air conditioning or an open window the reeds will soak up the oil faster).
Why can't I smell my diffuser anymore?
The reeds continuously release a clean, pure fragrance throughout your home. Simply turn the reeds over once a week to recharge and release a new wave of scent.
It is highly recommended to turn the reeds over a sink or some paper towel to avoid any damage to furniture from a spillage.
Over time the reeds become completely saturated and can become clogged with dust. If you still have oil in the bottle and flipping the reeds doesn’t seem to help, consider replacing your reeds.
When should I replace my reeds?
Replace the reeds after they permanently stop diffusing. Over time, reeds can become clogged with dust.
