Reed diffuser sticks are a popular and hassle-free way to create a pleasant and inviting atmosphere in your home or office. With their ability to gently release fragrance into the air, they offer a stylish alternative to traditional candles or plug-in air fresheners. In this blog post, we will explore the various aspects of using reed diffuser sticks effectively, from choosing the right fragrance to maintaining their longevity. So, let's dive in and discover how to master the art of reed diffuser sticks!
1. Selecting the Perfect Reed Diffuser:
- Consider the space: Assess the size of the room or area where you intend to use the reed diffuser. Larger rooms may require diffusers with more sticks or a higher concentration of fragrance oil.
- Fragrance preference: Choose a scent that complements your personal taste and the ambiance you wish to create. Common options include Cotton Blossom + Sandalwood in the bathroom, Lavender + Ylang in the bedroom, Palo Santo in a closet and Grapefruit + Honeysuckle in the entry way. Experiment with different fragrances to find the one that suits you best.
- Quality matters: Opt for high-quality reed diffusers made from natural materials, as they tend to provide better fragrance diffusion and last longer. We use rattan reeds for a longer lasting diffused scent.
2. Setting Up Your Reed Diffuser:
- Find the ideal spot: Place your reed diffuser in a well-ventilated area where there is minimal risk of accidental spills or tipping over.
- Avoid direct sunlight: Sunlight can cause the fragrance oil to evaporate more quickly, reducing the diffuser's lifespan. Choose a location away from direct sunlight.
- Protect surfaces: To prevent any potential damage to surfaces, place a coaster or dish under the diffuser.

3. Maximizing Diffusion and Longevity:
- Initial setup: When setting up a new reed diffuser, remove the stopper from the fragrance oil bottle and insert the reed sticks. After a 24 hours the sticks will be fully saturated and the scent will start to diffuse in the room.
- Rotate the sticks: To maintain a consistent fragrance intensity, rotate the reed sticks every week or whenever you notice a reduction in scent throw. This helps refresh the diffusion process.
- Customize intensity: If you desire a more subtle fragrance, use fewer reed sticks, and vice versa. Experiment with the number of sticks to find the perfect balance for your space.
- Enhance diffusion: Placing the reed diffuser near a fan or air vent can help enhance the diffusion process, spreading the fragrance more effectively.
4. Maintenance and Care:
- Clean the vessel: Every time you rotate the sticks, gently wipe the inside of the vessel with a cloth to remove any residue or build-up.
- Trim the reeds: Over time, reed sticks can become clogged with dust or become saturated with fragrance oil, hampering their effectiveness. Trim the sticks periodically to keep them fresh and efficient.
- Refill or replace: When the fragrance oil runs out, you can refill the vessel with a compatible refill oil or replace the reed sticks altogether for a new scent experience.
