Homemade Reed Diffusers

words by: Merissa A. Alink

These homemade diffusers are particularly perfect to have in the bathroom if you don’t care for the “typical bathroom smell”! You probably already have the things that you need to make these since they are so easy. Let’s get started!

What You Need: 

  Empty Small Glass Bottle

  Uncented Oil

  Skewers, Dowels, or Reed Diffuser Rods

  Essential Oils

Instructions: 

Pour some unscented oil in the little bottle. The amount you use will depend on the size of the jar you use. You only need to fill about 1/4 of the jar with oil. I used grapeseed oil because that’s what I keep on hand. If you have a different unscented oil that should work fine. For the scented oil, I use a peppermint-mocha essential oil blend, but use whichever scent you enjoy most!

Now all you have to do it place the reeds in the open jar of oil and leave it setting out. I used plain wood skewers that I found at the grocery store, however if you want to get fancy you can get actual reed diffuser rods, but they will be more expensive. If you’re using a small jar, use shorter skewers.
