This is a little write-up on how to refill your scented oil air freshener on the cheap. These units work pretty well, they are long lasting, more gentle and natural smelling than other types. However, refills are whether expensive, sometimes costing over half or as much as the price of the starter kit (plug-in & refill). Ouch !

So, here is how you could recharge an empty refill glass container yourself. This is just an example of how it is done for one brand, but I imagine the others are similar.

***Caution – Even tough the warmer uses a small amount of heat to release the fragrance by warming the oil up, it is still a good idea to test the oil first and keep on eye on the new refill before letting the unit run by itself.***

Okay now, if you still want to proceed, here is what you will need:

1) An empty refill
2) Scented oil for oil warmer
3) A knife or something thin and stiff

Step 2: Remove The Rubber Lids

Use a knife to slowly lift the rubber plastic lid cover around the glass container. You want to be careful since you will need the lids again. Slowly and gently the lid will separate from the glass part.
