  • CONTAINERS | Any narrow-opening container made of an essential-oil-safe material can be turned into a reed diffuser.  Glass, ceramic, earthenware, wood, or stainless steel all work great. Look around your home, you probably already have something that will work. A vase looks so good as a diffuser. I prefer glass containers because you can decorate them! 

Having a hard time finding one? Try:
Amazon, Michael's, World Market, Joann's, Hobby Lobby, Goodwill.

  • Flip sticks every few days to refresh scent.

    Replace the oil-alcohol mixture once it evaporates + replace the reed sticks about once a month.
