How to Select an Aroma Reed Diffuser
Aroma Reed diffusers are an easy, non-toxic way to add a nice fragrance to your home. These popular products use a special type of fragrance oil that is suspended in a glass vessel and dispersed by rattan reeds. The reeds absorb and distribute the scent throughout their length, so the fragrance is evenly released in your home. They also help keep the oil fresh by keeping it in contact with the reeds. You can change the scent whenever you like, but it's important to flip the reeds regularly.
It's also a good idea to place the reed diffuser out of reach of children and pets, as it may drip oil occasionally. If you're worried about this, you can put a plate, coaster or placemat under the jar to catch any droplets. You'll also want to be sure that the reeds are out of reach of anything else that could cause them to break.
Some reed diffusers contain essential oils, while others are made with perfume-based fragrance oil. The latter is more common, as it's typically made with fewer chemicals than essential oils. If you want your reed diffuser to smell even more pleasant, you can add a few drops of carrier oil to the fragrance oil. These oils aren't necessary, but they can make the scent last longer. The most common carrier oils for reed diffusers are fractionated coconut oil and jojoba oil.
When selecting a reed diffuser, look for one that has a stylish container that fits in with your decor. You'll also want to choose a reed diffuser that comes in a variety of sizes, so you can find one that fits your space. Also, check whether the reed diffuser you select also comes as a candle or room spray.
Most reed diffusers come with a container of fragrance oil, but you should be sure to read the label carefully before pouring in any oil. You'll want to pour in just enough oil so that the bottom of each reed stick is submerged. If you have too much oil, it can cause the reeds to become saturated with scent and begin to break down faster.
Fragrance oil is available in a variety of different scents, from nostalgic city names to holiday-inspired concoctions. You can also purchase unscented reed diffuser oil, and some brands offer reeds separately to make it easier to change the fragrance of your reed diffuser.
The reeds in this reed diffuser are specially designed to absorb fragrance oil and release it in small bursts into the air. The reeds are also porous, which helps control the rate at which the fragrance is released. If you want your reeds to release the fragrance more quickly, you can increase the number of reeds or remove one or two. You should also flip the reeds regularly to ensure that the entire room is well-scented. The diffuser will remain fragrant for up to three months.
