This homemade reed diffuser is super simple to make, costs next to nothing and can be customised to match your home and your own favourite scents!
You know I love a good DIY when I get a chance so today, I wanted to share my homemade reed diffuser with you.
I mentioned it a few weeks ago in one of my five frugal things post but I’d only just made my first one and I wanted to make sure it was worth sharing before I blogged about it. I wasn’t convinced that it was going to actually last long enough that I could smell it for more than the first hour. 😂
It’s really impressed me to be fair considering how simple my version it to make.
How to make your own homemade reed diffuser
- 75ml of a carrier oil such as almond oil.
- Reed Diffuser Sticks
- A pretty glass jar – mine is a curry sauce jar with a piece of lace tied around it.
- Pour your almond oil into the glass jar that you’re using. I’ve run out of almond oil and I was too impatient to wait for my Amazon delivery to make today’s reed diffuser so I used water which I can already tell isn’t going to be as effective as when I use Almond oil so I’ll be waiting for the Derek the delivery driver (we’re practically family at this point) on Monday morning and I’ll probably redo this.
- Add 30 drops of your favourite essential oil. I often use peppermint but today I made a lavender-scented version so I can pop it on my bedroom windowsill for a bit of calming sleepy vibe.
- Pop between 10 and 15 of your reed diffuser sticks in your jar.
- Let it sit for a couple of hours to allow the reeds to soak up the liquid and essential oils.
- You can keep the scent by flipping the reeds around about once a week.
As always, read this post before you start experimenting with essential oils.
