Okay, now be honest, how many of you have a weakness for the amazing aromas found at Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop? I know that I LOVE yummy smelling places…they really brighten my mood. One of the ways you can infuse a room with fragrance is with a reed diffuser. How would you like to learn how to make your own? It’s super easy, inexpensive, and YOU can customize the scent! Here’s how.
DIY Reed Diffuser
Super easy peasy. And it is super inexpensive. Just flip your sewers once each week. My cost break down is this:
- You can use either oil or water. Water will evaporate much more quickly so you will need to refill your diffuser sooner. (My house is so dry in the winter that I find the oil works much better)
- If you use oil, you can use mineral oil, almond oil, castor oil, or another unscented/lightly scented oil.
- When using water as your base, the tsp of vodka helps the fragrance/essential oil bind to the water.
- When using oil as your base, the tsp of vodka help the fragrance oil travel up the skewer.
- I used fragrance oil purchased from The Body Shop but you can use other fragrance oils that are sold for use in diffusers at Bath and Body Works and other stores, or you can use a mixture of Essential Oil.
- The reason why you should use a narrow necked vase/jar is it will slow the rate at which the fragrance oil/water evaporates.
