How to get the most out of Reed Diffusers

Reed diffusers are our go-to to add fragrance to your home. While scented candles are another great way, the intermittent use won’t offer the same long-lasting fragrance that a reed diffuser can provide.


Reeds are used to soak up the beautiful fragrance oil that can truly transform your space and ambiance, while dispersing freshness into any room.


Reed diffusers are easy to use and can easily be used as home décor.

How Do Reed Diffusers Work?

Most reed diffuser vessels are packaged and already contain fragrance oil. Simply remove the stopper and insert your reeds. Reeds absorb the fragrance oil, that move up the length to disperse the fragrance into the air. Depending on the number of reeds you add, this will change the intensity of the fragrance. We recommend flipping your reeds once a week to refresh the scent through your reeds and into your room.


Our reed diffusers last 6-8 months, though this may vary depending on the number of reeds used.


If you purchase a reed diffuser that has oil to fill your vessel, make sure to do this over a sink or on top of a small coaster/plate to keep any oil drops from damaging your surface.

Where to use your Reed Diffuser

Did you know that reed diffusers rely on circulation? They’ll work best in a high traffic area – hallways, bathrooms, bedrooms, basements, and even regularly-visited closets. (*hint hint – for those teenagers too!)


Wondering how many reeds to use? We recommend for larger spaces like entry halls and living rooms, 6 to 8 reeds: in smaller spaces like bathrooms and closets, 3 or 4 reeds. We don’t want to overpower any room, so start with a smaller number if you are unsure.


PRO TIP: Invest in a reed diffuser for your desk! Fragrance can help transform or calm your mood throughout the workday.


Choosing the Best Fragrance

Change up your reed diffuser seasonally or for the right ambiance! We recommend browsing our fragrances to find the right one for the right space.

Start by thinking about where you want to use the reed diffuser and the ambiance you want to create. For a bathroom, a fresh or floral scent is the perfect or if you are looking for an entryway - a warm, welcoming scent might be more ideal.
