No Wax or Mess - incense has ashes, candles have wax; the reed diffuser has neither.o No Aerosols - unlike sprayed scents, the reed diffusers do not have any added chemicals.
No Electric Power - you can place a reed diffuser anywhere without having to rely on an outlet or change batteries.
No Heat - heated fragrances like plugins may actually damage the fragrance or essential oils while the reed diffuser protects the integrity of the oils.
Diffuser General Information:
Diffuser Reeds - Diffuser reeds or sticks look very similar to bamboo except the best performing diffuser reeds are made from rattan, a natural plant material. They contain many tiny channels or holes that travel the full length. The most popular size for rattan reeds or diffuser reeds is 30cm. However, you can cut them down smaller if using a very short glass as your diffuser container. Each rattan stick contains about 20 individual channels inside. These run the entire length of the reed and draw or suck up the fragrance to help disperse it. Always purchase these types of quality rattan reeds and not solid rattan or bamboo reeds. They will not perform as well. As a general rule, 10 diffuser reeds will give a nice scent throw and the more reeds used, the stronger the scent throw.
Diffuser Glass - Most people use glass containers with their diffuser oils. This is because some other substances such as plastics or metal may react with the fragrance oils. Plus, it looks quite elegant when filled with diffuser oil and diffuser reeds.
Diffuser Oils - When purchasing diffuser fragrance oils be sure to look for high-quality oils. This will ensure long life and a pleasant smell. Avoid cheap oils that smell very chemically as these may also be harmful to smell. As a general rule, about 40mls of diffuser oil should last about a month. This does depend on several factors such as temperature, air-conditioning & airflow.
