This simple and elegant square design, the bottle fits into any home decor. The wooden caps have a protective metal ring to prevent staining from the oils. These wooden caps come in a natural state ready for staining or painting.
Included is a plastic plug which allows for easy transporting of oil in the bottle. (6.6 oz bottle).

Each rattan reed contains about 20 "channels" that run the entire length of the reed. Much like "mini-straws", these channels "suck" the oil to the top of the reeds. The scent is then naturally dispersed into the air through evaporation and leaving your home smelling wonderful!

Although, rattan reeds are the best for wicking up the oil, you still need to mix your oil with the "Reed Diffuser Base". The reed diffuser base is specially formulated to aide your oil in wicking up the reeds. The "Reed Diffuser Reed" does not have any alcohol.

To prepare your oil for the reed diffuser, typical formulations is :

  • Essential Oils : Mix about 80% Reed Diffuser Base, with about 20% Essential Oil
  • Perfume Oils : Mix about 2.5 oz Reed Diffuser Base, with about 1.5 oz Perfume Oil

Reed Diffuser Base

The more reed diffuser base you add the more mellow the scent of the essential oil becomes to the point that it serves it's therapeutic effect without creating a headache. You can start this experiment with mixing up small amounts of the essential oil with the reed diffuser base, and each time write down the percentage mixed until you reach the desired mixture to make a larger amount. Remember, every time you change the essential oil, you have to search for a new mixing formula, which means you would need a different percentage of the new essential oil and the diffuser base mixture.

The base mixes well with fragrance oils and enhances the capillary action, encouraging the diffuser oil to travel up the reed diffuser sticks where the scent can be effectively dispersed into the environment. A formulation with too much Essential or Perfume oil will not effectively migrate up the reeds, and will hinder effective scent dispersion.

To make sure the reeds continue to diffuse:

  • Once a week, flip the reed sticks so that the “dry” side of the sticks is in the bottle and the saturated end is in the air (Best to do this in your kitchen sink).
  • Once every 2 to 3 months change the reeds with new and fresh ones. Because the sticks will be totally saturated, and the cells in the reeds get somewhat clogged losing their ability to pull the scent up into the reeds and diffuse the oil into the room.
  • Once every few months, check the oil level and add more oil mixed with "Reed Base" if necessary.
