What are the scented sticks called?
Reed diffusers are liquid air fresheners in a narrow-necked bottle with long “sticks” inserted in to the liquid. These sticks, or reeds, absorb scented liquid from the container and release fragrance into the surrounding air.
How long do scent sticks last?
A good quality reed will last approximately six months. If the fragrance is no longer as strong as it once was, try flipping the reeds. Over time, the reeds will become saturated and can get clogged with dust. When this happens, it is time to replace the reeds.
What can I use instead of reed sticks?
If you’re using water as your base, you’ll be fine with using simple bamboo skewers. They’re less porous than traditional reeds, so they won’t get oversaturated (and clogged) with the water.
Which fragrance is best for room?
6 Bedroom Scents We Love
- Lavender. Long celebrated for its calming effects and ability to combat anxiety, the smell of lavender is clinically proven to slow down the nervous system, which relaxes the body and mind to improve sleep quality.
Is reed diffuser bad for health?
Reed diffusers won`t cause health issues or danger to your home and they provide a lovely smell for weeks on end, lasting far longer than other scenting methods.
Do diffuser sticks stop working?
Yes and no. When your reed diffuser is fading or no longer sending its fragrance into the air, it’s time to flip the diffuser reeds over. This will enable a new burst of reed diffuser oil, and the reeds won’t need to be replaced. Repeat as needed to keep diffusing—usually once a week.
How many sticks should you put in a diffuser?
We recommend starting with 6-8 reeds, but you may choose to add more. Know that the more reeds you use, the more fragrance is released, and the quicker the liquid is used up. Pair your reeds with a sleek clear or silver glass bottle.
