Reed diffusers are an affordable, flame-free way to add a gorgeous scent to your home. You don’t need to like diffusers, so they’re safer to use than candles and you don’t need to worry about leaving them unattended. Reed diffusers can cost anywhere from £2 to £200 and upwards, and if you’re replacing them every couple of months, like you’re supposed to do, this can add up to quite a large amount. Express.co.uk chatted to the experts at crafts supplier Cosy Owl to find out how to make your own reed diffusers for a fraction of the price.
Reed diffusers fill your home with a scent without using any heat, unlike a candle.
They’re effortless to use – all you need to do is pop some reeds into a jar of diffuser oil and let them soak up the fragrance.
The reeds naturally emit the smell around the room and you need to flip them every other day to make sure the smell continues to disperse.
Diffusers add luxury to your home, and they’re really fun to make. Richard Fewings, Managing Director of Cosy Owl commented: “A crafty way of adding colour to your key feature rooms is by using this clever reed diffuser colouring technique. It’s certainly a funky way to add something different to your home!”
