Essentials Video: Reed Diffuser Blend

Are you looking for a fun and decorative way to enjoy your essential oils? A Reed Diffuser might be just the thing! Start by finding a jar or vase with a narrow opening. Then, add your blend of essential oils, vodka and fractionated coconut oil. Insert your reeds and enjoy passive diffusion! This blend combines the citrusy and soothing Yuzu with the complex herbaceous and floral Lavender Fine. Lastly, it adds the relaxing notes of Catnip with the fresh minty aroma of Peppermint.

  • I love yuzu and am eager to try new ways to use it. I don’t have cat nip, can that be replaced with something else

    1. Our Fragrance Wheel is always a good place to start when you need to find a substitute based on fragrance. Depending on what you have on hand, Chamomile Roman, Geranium Egyptian or Marjoram Sweet would all be great options!

  • I want to make one of these differs so bad… one of these days I’ll find some everclear….. I hope!

  • I have been wanting to make reed diffusers for a long time. Now I know just what to do. I’m so excited. Perfect for bathrooms. Laundry room too.

  • I’ve made reed diffusers many times and they never seem to emit any scent. I use coconut oil and have called you to determine how many drops of oil to use. What could I be doing wrong? Should I use a different reed. I bought mine from Amazon.

    1. Reed diffusion is a much more passive method of diffusion. It shouldn’t be as overpowering as other methods. I can’t say for certain that it is the reeds that you’ve purchased but if switching them out doesn’t work for you, it may just not be a preferred method of diffusion for you.

  • Time to experiment with reed diffusers again. This blend sound great, but, I ran out of yuzu, and, I am not so patiently waiting….

  • A interesting combination I will have to try it out. I’ve wonder if I can substitute the vodka? Rubbing alcohol maybe? I might give it a try and see if it works. Thanks for the recipe.

  • I have never used a reed diffuser before, but this great recipe makes me want to try it 🙂 thank you!

  • I absolutely love this idea for bathrooms, hallways, and guest bedrooms. Very unique way of freshening areas, while keeping clean products at bay. Thank you!

  • I have wanted to know how to use a reed diffuser for a long time. Thank you for the information and the recipe!

  • This is timely for me. My dad just gave me a reed diffuser yesterday. I was wondering how I was going to use my oils in it. Thank you!

  • Thanks for sharing different ways of diffusing. I thought I was limited to my diffuser, but this is a good lower key way to do so.

  • Because I have 3 cats I don’t diffuse at all or use oils in cleaning – is this a safe method to use in a household with indoor only cats? Thank you!

    1. Unfortunately, cats are still exposed to oils even in passive diffusion. We recommend using personal inhalers as the best way to enjoy oils with cats around.

        1. I was concerned about using oils with my cat. I call the vet and she said diffusing was ok around mine. I don’t diffuse in the room she likes to hang out in.

  • This is SO easy, I never realized how simple it is to make your own reed diffuser! Definitely more affordable than others you buy fully online – this way, you also know exactly what’s in it too!

  • I’m so excited to find this blog about reed diffusers. I have used some ‘chemical/perfumey’ type reed diffusers from a well known candle company but I was never thrilled about the chemicals in my house. Now I can use my own oils and aromatherapy supplies to create my own natural reed diffusers. Thanks so much Plant Therapy!!

    1. I’m so excited to try this! I want to put it on my kitchen windowsill and enjoy the aroma! I hope Plant Therapy gets Yuzu back in stock soon, as I would NEVER buy oils from anyone else!!
