How To Create A Reed Diffuser With 10 Essential Oil Blend Recipes

How To Create A Reed Diffuser With 10 Essential Oil Blend Recipes

Want to learn how to create your own reed diffuser? Reed diffusers can freshen up any room, try them in a bathroom, living room, bedroom, even an office.

Homemade reed diffusers will not only cost you less, they are better for your health since there are no toxic chemicals in them. Store bought versions are made with unknown oils and additives.

It is fairly simple, you just need a narrow neck glass bottle, reeds/skewers, essential oils and fractionated coconut oil (or carrier oil of your choice).  You can even recycle an old reed diffuser and make it new again with one of these recipes.

Tip: If using skewer sticks, cut off sharp tip with pruning shears, that is what worked best for me. They are too thick for regular scissors to cut & pruning shears are use to cutting sticks :)

Essential Oil Reed Diffuser Tutorial

You can use an essential oil blend from your favorite oil company or you can create your own with the recipes below. You can do many variations of essential oil to make custom blends, just remember you need 20 drops of essential oil for each 1/4 cup of fractionated coconut oil.

Step 1. Add fractionated coconut oil and essential oils to bottle. Gently swirl to mix oils together.

Step 2. Add the reeds into bottle. Let the reeds soak up the oil for one hour, then flip them over.

Step 3. Enjoy the aroma, you will occasionally need to flip the reeds to freshen the smell.
