Caring For Your Reed Diffuser
Reed diffusers are becoming a must have home accessory for creating a subtle and long lasting fragrance in any room. They help disguise odours in a more natural and consistent way than harsher chemical air fresheners. They are simple to look after - but always make sure that you read the safety instructions.
How does a reed diffuser work?
The diffuser liquid is comprised of fragranced and scented oils blended with a clear unscented base oil. When the porous reeds are placed into the liquid, the oil is drawn up along the reed. The scent is then naturally dispersed by evaporation into the air. Depending upon the size of the room, it will usually take about 24 hours for complete scent diffusion to occur.
How often should I turn the reeds?
You can revitalise the fragrance release of your diffuser by turning the reeds over, this ensures that the fragrance continues to disperse. When turning the reeds, always use either a folded piece of kitchen towel, or wear rubber gloves. Always gather the reeds together and remove all of them at the same time
How long will my diffuser last?
Our diffusers come with five 6mm reeds and on average the fragrance should last 8 – 12 weeks but this will depend on many factors including the fragrance, the number of reeds used, position of the diffuser in the home and seasonal temperature variations. You will find that diffusion slows down in cooler environments and increases with ambient temperatures in summer. It can also vary in each room depending on air circulation. If you find your diffuser is too strong, or diffusing too quickly, simply reduce the number of reeds in the container.
