How To Make Reed Diffuser With Essential Oils

Are you looking for a natural and fragrant way to fill your home with your favorite essential oil scents? A reed diffuser is a perfect solution! In this guide, we'll show you how to make your own reed diffuser using essential oils, so you can create the relaxing, energizing or stress-relieving atmosphere you desire.

Why Choose a Reed Diffuser?

Reed diffusers are an attractive and eco-friendly option for home fragrance, as they don't rely on electricity or heat, which can cause some essential oils to lose their therapeutic properties. Here are some reasons why you might choose a reed diffuser over other home fragrance options:

  • Safe and easy to use: Unlike candle-based options that pose fire risks, reed diffusers don't need a flame or constant supervision.
  • Long-lasting fragrance: Depending on the size and concentration of your reed diffuser, it can provide a lovely fragrance for weeks or months.
  • Customizable scent: You can blend your favorite essential oils to create a unique, personal aroma for your home.
  • Visually appealing: Reed diffusers come in a variety of designs, from simple minimalist styles to ornate glass vessels, making them an attractive addition to your home decor.

What You'll Need

Before you begin, gather the following items:

  1. A clean, empty glass or ceramic container with a narrow opening (to slow evaporation).
  2. 5-10 reed diffuser sticks (you can purchase these online, or use natural rattan sticks).
  3. Essential oils of your choice (Oshu Oils offers a fantastic selection of high-quality, artisan essential earth oils).
  4. A carrier oil (such as sweet almond oil, fractionated coconut oil, or safflower oil).
  5. Isopropyl alcohol (also known as rubbing alcohol).
  6. A small funnel (for easy pouring).

Creating Your Reed Diffuser

Follow these simple steps to create your reed diffuser:

  1. Choose your essential oils: This is where you can get creative! Find a blend of essential oils you love, keeping in mind that some oils have stronger scents than others, so you may need to adjust the ratios accordingly. For example, if you want a fresh and uplifting aroma, blend citrus oils like lemon, lime, and grapefruit with a hint of minty eucalyptus.
  2. Mix your carrier oil and essential oils: In a small container, combine 3 parts carrier oil with 1 part essential oil(s). If you want a stronger aroma, you can increase the ratio of essential oils, but keep in mind that a higher concentration may not last as long.
  3. Add alcohol: To help the essential oil and carrier oil mixture flow up the reed sticks more easily, add a splash of isopropyl alcohol. Aim for a 70% carrier oil, 30% alcohol mixture.
  4. Fill your diffuser container: Using a small funnel, carefully fill your container with the oil blend, leaving some space at the top so the liquid won't spill when you insert the reeds.
  5. Insert the reed sticks: Place the reeds into the container, ensuring they are spread out evenly. They will start absorbing the oil mixture and releasing the essential oil fragrance into your home.
  6. Flip the reeds regularly: To maintain a constant fragrance, flip the reed sticks every few weeks, or when the aroma begins to fade. Be sure to use a paper towel or gloves when handling the reeds to avoid getting the essential oil blend on your skin.
