Have you ever wondered how to use a Reed Diffuser? What ingredients you need for it?
Using a reed diffuser can be beneficial for your health and well-being as opposed to some of the commercial air fresheners.
There are some ready-made blends out in the market that you can purchase, but here is a simple recipe that you can use to make your own blend to add your essential oils to.
- 1/4 Cup (60 ml) of Sweet Almond Oil
- 1 or 2 Tbspn (15-30 ml) alcohol (OR Witch Hazel with Alcohol OR Vodka)
- 25-35 Drops (up to 5ml) of Essential Oils
Mix together and place into glass container like this one. Soak reeds on 1 end for 2 to 3 hrs, then flip them over so that soaked end is exposed to the air to amplify the scent.
Continue to flip over once or twice a week until scent is diminished. It's recommended that you replace the reeds each time you refill your bottle.
