Whilst reed diffusers standing alone, can look very attractive, more and more people are personalising them to their individual taste and room decor by creating a reed diffuser garden. These can be bought ready-made and there is a wide choice available.
However, you can also make your own reed diffuser garden. Using a Reed diffuser is a great way of adding fragrance to your home or place of work. Fragrance is a very personal thing, so there are no inflexible rules about which aroma to use in a specific place.
What is reed diffuser?
To make a simple reed diffuser, you need only three elements:-
The reeds last for a long time, but need to be changed each time you change the fragrance oil in your diffuser. If you utilise an old one then you will be merging scents. These products are accessible in packs because you need to use more then one reed for each diffuser. To find out how to choose the best diffuser reeds, please use the link to visit our article.
- Diffuser Container:
The diffuser is the small to standard sized jar or flask that holds the reeds in place and contains the fragrance oil. The reeds soak up oils and then slowly disperse them into the air thus creating and spreading the sweet aromas you want.
- Reed diffuser oils:
The fame of the use of essential oils to refresh your homes and business alike has created a complete new world of variety in scents. This method of releasing oil scents into the air is a new and very practical way to revive the interior of your home and reed diffuser and oils are now one of the most famous and trendy ways that people are using to make an aromatic environment. The procedure behind oils and reed diffuser is very easy. The reeds are instilled with essential oil aromas.
How To Make A Reed Diffuser Garden:
In addition to the reeds and container and your chosen essential oil, you also combine a range of accessories and scented candles. You will also need a tray, shallow dish or other suitable container on which to stand all the elements that you collect together for your reed diffuser garden.
Scented candles are always a good choice for additions to your reed diffuser garden but you must be sure to place them in a safe position where they will not get knocked over or come into contact with anything flammable.
I have shown some ideas for combining different elements and also provided some suggestions for choosing the fragrance for the diffuser, according to the area or room in which you want to place it.
Entrance; Refreshing scents such as citrus, lemongrass and ginger are best for living rooms or in the hall or entrance as they are so welcoming, fresh and inspiring.
Living area; Some fragrances to add in your reed diffuser are lilac, pear, black cherry, fresh linen, apple spice, cinnamon, sweet pea, lavender vanilla, vanilla lime or vanilla are good choices. These can be used in the dining room or living area.
Kitchen; You may prefer to use an epicure scent in the kitchen, so scents like cinnamon, vanilla and orange seem to work best there. There are also aromas that are evocative of baked goods – for example cheesecake, chocolate, apple pie, sugar cookies and lemon chiffon pie.
Drawing rooms; Exotic scents include jasmine, frangipani, hibiscus and other stifling flowers. These can be used in your drawing-rooms to make your guests feel welcome.
Corridors; Gentle tones are labelled with soothing names, such as ocean breeze, beach and evergreen forest. These are good to add in your corridors and hallways.
Bedrooms; choose fragrances known for their relaxing and soothing properties such as lavender if you find falling asleep difficult. You can also create a romantic, intimate mood by choosing from a range of fragrances designed for just this purpose!
