What You'll Need

Creating Your Reed Diffuser

What You'll Need

To get started, gather the following materials:

  • A small glass or ceramic container with a narrow opening: This will hold your diffuser liquid and help minimize evaporation.
  • Rattan reed diffuser sticks: Opt for high-quality and porous sticks that absorb and diffuse the oils well. Avoid bamboo skewers, as they don't absorb oils effectively.
  • Essential oils: Select your favorite Oshu Oils essential oil or blend to achieve the desired aroma and benefits.
  • Carrier liquid: You will need to mix your essential oils with a solvent like sweet almond oil, safflower oil, or a blend of water and alcohol (such as vodka).
  • A small funnel or dropper: This will make it easier to fill your container without spills or messes.
  • A stirring tool: This can be a wooden spoon, chopstick, or a cotton swab for blending the oils and carrier liquid.

Creating Your Reed Diffuser

Now that you have all the materials, follow these easy steps:

  1. Choose your essential oils: Consider the mood or atmosphere you want to create. For example, lavender promotes relaxation and sleep, while peppermint can boost energy and focus. You can also blend different essential oils to create unique and personalized scents. Experiment with Oshu Oils' range to find your perfect match.
  2. Mix your diffuser liquid: Combine approximately 20-30 drops of your chosen essential oil(s) with about 1/4 cup of your chosen carrier liquid. Remember to keep the ratio of essential oils to carrier liquid relatively low (around a 1:4 ratio) to avoid overpowering scents or potential skin irritation should you come into contact with the liquid.
  3. Pour the mixture into your container: Using a funnel or dropper, carefully pour your prepared diffuser liquid into the glass or ceramic container. Ensure the opening is narrow enough to support the positioning of the reeds without them falling over or touching the bottom.
  4. Insert the reed sticks: Place 5-8 rattan reed sticks into your container, ensuring they are evenly spaced and standing upright. The reeds will absorb the liquid and diffuse the fragrance throughout the room.
  5. Rotate the reeds: After a few hours, or when you notice the scent fading, flip the sticks to expose the saturated ends and redistribute the oils. Repeat this process every few days for consistent fragrance diffusion.

How To Make A Reed Diffuser With Essential Oils Example:

For a refreshing and energizing reed diffuser blend, you can mix 10 drops of Oshu Oils peppermint essential oil, 10 drops of Oshu Oils eucalyptus essential oil, and 1/4 cup of sweet almond oil. Follow the above steps to prepare your diffuser, place it in your living room, and welcome an uplifting and inviting atmosphere.
