DIY Reed Diffuser using Essential Oils

DIY Reed Diffuser using Essential Oils

So I mentioned in my previous post that I purchased some essential oils. I’ve been using them for skincare this week (will post about that at some point), but today I thought I’d share a really easy way to use them to make your own reed diffuser! I absolutely love reed diffusers, so being able to make my own is a big plus.

Here’s what you’ll need (I pretty much just followed this website):

  • small decorative bottle
  • reeds
  • your choice of essential oils
  • carrier oil
  • alcohol (vodka or rubbing alcohol)

For my carrier oil, I used castor because that’s really all I had. Its probably not the best choice since its kind of goopy. The tutorial I followed suggests safflower oil or sweet almond oil.

First, mix your carrier oil with your essential oils. Use 1/4 cup of carrier oil, and about 15 drops of essential oil (I used way more…oops!). You can use whichever essential oils you like. I used primarily lavender and lemon with a little bit of rosemary. Then, add 1 tsp of your alcohol. Make sure the alcohol concentration is at least 90% (I used some rubbing alcohol from the drugstore).

And that’s it!

(oh I completely forgot to mention that I have a new theme here that I made…enjoy!)
