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.

MANY THANKS BUT IF I ORDER 100 WICKS THEY WANT 45 DOLLARS FOR POSTAGE.........SEEMS VERY HIGH COST FOR SUCH A LIGHT WEIGHT ITEM
Yikes!!!! Regular USPS Priority Mail International can be really high. However, I would say those wicks can easily weigh under 4lbs which could be shipped using a USPS Priority Mail International Flat Rate Envelope for around $13 max from US to the UK.

I had been searching for this information for a while too. I knew it wasn't that difficult but I thought that one might have to mix the essential oil with another oil to dilute it. Though this doesn't look to be the case. Thanks.
