Reed diffusers bring a certain sense of elegance to any room. They’re easy to make and the ways to customize them are limitless. Let’s get creative.
- Measuring cup
- Base oil (such as fractionated coconut oil, which can be found at your local grocery store)
- Glass container with a narrow opening (we found ours at our favorite antique store)
- Essential oil
- 8-10 rattan diffuser reeds
- Ribbon (optional)
Pour base oil into your glass container in 1/2 cup increments.
Add 40-50 drops of essential oil per 1/2 cup of base oil. Stir the oils using a rattan diffuser reed. Insert remaining reeds into the container. Make a bow using ribbon, if desired. Flip the reeds after 1 hour.
Flip reeds once a week and replace the oil mixture completely once a month.
ORANGE & FIELD TIP: Be very careful when selecting essential oils because some can be harmful to pets.
