Reed Diffuser Maintenance, Care and Placement

We pride ourselves on creating beautifully scented reed diffusers that add a touch of luxury to any space. However, to ensure your diffuser lasts as long as possible, it's important to know how to properly care for it. In this blog post, we'll be sharing some tips on how to maintain and care for your reed diffuser, as well as the best places to put them.

Tip #1: Flip the Reeds Regularly To keep your reed diffuser scenting your room, it’s important to flip the reeds regularly. The oils can gather at the bottom of the bottle and not travel up the reeds as effectively. You can flip the reeds every week or every other week depending on how strong you would like the fragrance. Remember to wash your hands before and after handling the reeds.

Tip #2: Keep the Bottle Tightly Sealed When you're not using your reed diffuser, make sure the bottle is tightly sealed to prevent the oil from evaporating. This will also help the oil last longer, as it won't be exposed to air as much.

Tip #3: Store in a Cool, Dry Place Avoid storing your reed diffuser in direct sunlight, near a heat source, or in humid areas such as the bathroom. This can cause the oil to evaporate faster or even spoil. Instead, store your diffuser in a cool, dry place like a living room or bedroom.

Best Places to Put Your Reed Diffuser

Reed diffusers can be placed in a variety of locations in your home or office. Some popular places include:

  • Living room: Place your diffuser on a coffee table or bookshelf to add a touch of scent to your living space.
  • Bedroom: Placing your diffuser on your nightstand or dresser can help you relax and unwind at the end of a long day.
  • Bathroom: Adding a diffuser to your bathroom can help keep it smelling fresh and clean. Remember this will decrease the overall longevity. 
  • Office: A diffuser can help create a calming atmosphere in your workspace, making it easier to focus and be productive.

The length of time our 100ml reed diffuser lasts for will depend on several factors such as the type and quality of the fragrance oil, the number of reeds used, the size of the room where the diffuser is placed, and the frequency of flipping the reeds. As a general rule, a 100ml reed diffuser can last anywhere from 2-3 months up to 6 months or more.

To ensure that your reed diffuser lasts as long as possible, it's important to place it in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight, heat, and drafts. You should also flip the reeds once or twice a week to help distribute the fragrance evenly and enhance the scent throw.

It's worth noting that some fragrance oils may evaporate more quickly than others, so if you notice that your diffuser is running out of oil faster than expected, you may need to replace the reeds or switch to a different fragrance.

We hope these tips help you care for and get the most out of your reed diffuser. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our products, please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you for choosing Lottie Elizabeth Ltd.
