What are reed diffusers exactly and how do they work ?
Reed diffusers are the hottest trend right now in home scenting ! A group of rattan reeds are inserted into a glass bottle containing scented diffuser oil. That's all there is to it !
Each rattan reed contains about 20 "channels" that run the entire length of the reed. Much like "mini-straws", these channels "suck" the oil to the top of the reeds. The scent is then naturally dispersed into the air through evaporation- leaving your home smelling wonderful !
How long do reed diffusers last ?
That is a complicated question as there are many factors that contribute to how long reed diffuser oils last. Use of fans, air conditioning, heating, humidity, closed doors, open doors, dehumidifiers, etc. However, as a general rule of thumb, our 4 oz. reed diffuser oils will last for approximately 3-4 months and our 8 oz. reed diffuser oils will last for approximately 6-8 months.
Are reed diffusers environmentally friendly ?
Our reed diffusers are environmentally friendly. Reed diffusers, unlike candles, emanate no soot. Also, our reed diffusers are made in the USA without DPG, alcohol or other harsh chemical surfactants. Use caution when purchasing imported oils. Oils from some other countries (China for example) are not federally regulated.
Can I re-use my reed diffuser reeds ?
No. Once reeds have been used for a certain scent, you should not use them for another scent. The scent that is already absorbed into your reeds will mix with the new scent and could produce some pretty yucky scent combinations. You should use new reeds when you switch to a new scent or if they become clogged with dust. After prolonged use and complete saturation of the reeds, the channels can become clogged. Simply replace with new reeds to get the scent rolling again !
How often should I flip the reeds ?
Whenever you notice the scent fading a bit or want an extra burst of fragrance. In our home, we flip the reeds in our reed diffusers about once per week.
Does your reed diffuser oil base contain DPG or alcohol ?
No ! We are quite proud of our base too ! Yes, allow us to toot our own horn here for a minute ! The MAJORITY of those selling reed diffusers use a base that is made up primarily of alcohol, Dipropylene Glycol (DPG) or a combination of both. Alcohol is highly flammable ! It also evaporates into the air very quickly and you go through your oils a lot faster that way. That's a sneaky little way to get you to have to more frequently buy more oils from them.
Dipropylene Glycol (often referred to as DPG) is a dilutent used in perfumery. DPG is thicker than water and although it is effective for thinning out fragrance oils, it can clog up your reeds. Our reed diffuser base contains NO ALCOHOL and NO DPG. This is why we very strongly believe that we offer the best !
Can I buy shorter reed diffuser reeds ?
You can cut the reeds to any length you desire. Just use a regular sharp pair of scissors and snip the ends to the desired length. Only cut clean, unused reeds.
This is my third time coming back to buy your reed diffuser refill oils. Yours are the strongest I have tried. You have a customer for life !

I really loved the lavender reed diffuser gift set I ordered for my sister in law for her birthday. She loved it too ! Now I am back to get one for myself !

Thank you for helping me pick out a reed diffuser scent for my girlfriend. She really loved the vanilla reed diffuser oil and also loved the reed diffuser bottle you suggested. I took all the credit though. :)
