Tips for Making Your Own Reed Diffuser:
- Choose a vessel that is meant to hold liquid. A bud vase meant for cut flowers is usually the perfect choice.
- Choose a vessel that is not porous on the inside. You want your vase to be glazed or
"finished" on the inside so your carrier oil and essential oils don't just soak into the vase or seep through.
- Choose a vessel with a narrow opening. This will help slow down the evaporation rate of your essential oils so your diffuser will last longer.
- Use reeds meant for a reed diffuser if you can find them. If they're not available near you, just use bamboo skewers. They're inexpensive and easy to find at any grocery shop.
- You can use whatever carrier oil you like. Keep in mind that some oils, like coconut and avocado, will solidify in cooler temperatures, so if it gets chilly where you live, you'll want to avoid those during the cooler months.
- Keep your diffuser away from mischievous kitties or curious children. Keep it where it won't damage carpet or flooring if there is an accidental spill.
