Reed diffusers are an excellent product to use when you want a constant stream of fragrance and you are not able to watch a candle. There are several things to think about when selecting a diffuser and the placement.
It's not realistic to think a small diffuser will fill a large room with fragrance. Diffusers come in many sizes so note that when purchasing.
If your diffuser comes with a canister for the oil be very careful when pouring the oil into the canister. The oil can damage your surface. Make sure to wipe the sides and bottom of the canister. It is a nice touch to place your diffuser on a pretty coaster/plate which is a good safeguard too.
Placement is Key
We recommend you put the diffuser in a high traffic area (i.e. entry way, shelf in bathroom, family room). Your guest will notice the fragrance immediately. Air flow will also help the fragrance diffuse into the room.
Your diffuser probably came with 8-12 reeds. You can place all the reeds in the canister at one time or you might choose to place half now and then replace later with the rest. The reeds can last up to 4 months, but all depends on the temperature of the room.
For the best performance of your reeds, you will want to flip them as they become saturated. This promotes the release of fragrance into the air.
