Step 3: Reed Diffuser


1/4 cup of a light oil like

15-20 drops essential oil

2 Tbsp of alcohol to help oils travel up reeds

reed sticks

Add 1/4 cup of a light oil to a glass measuring cup, add 2 Tbsp of alcohol, add 15-20 drops essential oil use one of the reeds to stir the oil and alcohol mixture. Stir well until the essential oils and carrier oil are somewhat well dispersed in the alcohol.

Pour the oil and alcohol mixture into the vase. Bundle the reeds and insert them into the neck of the vase.

The oil will saturate into reeds, and as it wicks up the reeds, it will release the aroma into the air. It will take a few days for the reeds to absorb the oil.
Flip sticks every few days to refresh scent. Replace the oil-alcohol mixture once it evaporates and replace the reed sticks about once a month.

Place rice and essential oil mixture in center of the burlap fabric and tie tightly with a ribbon). Set them in car cup holders, under the seat, or in the door. When the scent gets too weak, add a few more drops of essential oil and it’ll be new again.
