When someone mentions the words "home fragrance products", what comes to mind? Candles? Air freshener spray? Plug-in room scents? Now you can add reed diffusers to this list. You might see them in every day use and not realize it. Here are some simple information on what a diffuser is, how do they work, and who uses them.

What is a reed diffuser? A reed diffuser is a home fragrance product that comes in three parts: a bottle/container, scented oil, and reeds. They come in an assortment of shapes, size, and fragrances from a simple clear bottle to a decorative shape jar. To determine which size to use will need to be determined depending on the size of room you plan on using it in. A small reed diffuser will work wonderfully in a bathroom, which is typically small whereas a waiting room in a doctors office will need something larger to ensure the full room will be fragrant.

How do they work? Reed diffusers are quite simple to use as they are safe, do not require a flame like candles and are nearly maintenance free. To get it working simply remove the packaging and set all the elements on a flat surface. Next, uncap the oil and pour the fragrance oil into the empty vessel or uncap the container which the oil is already housed. (Note: some reed diffusers come with the oil ready to be used in the decorative vessel.) Lastly, insert the reeds into the filled vessel and enjoy. The reeds have tiny straw-like openings that run the whole length of the reed. These reeds, when moistened, soaks up the oil and carries it along the whole reed. While some sticks may take a while to absorb the oil, it is recommended to flip the reeds after 1 hour of first inserting them into the oil, to get them working faster.

Who uses diffusers? If you have a room, then you can use a reed diffuser. While most people use reed diffusers in the home in places like the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, and living room more and more people are using them outside the home. Reed diffusers can be found in lawyer and doctor's office waiting rooms to help calm clients. Those in nursing homes and retirement places welcome them as they not only hide smells they are pretty to admire. Real estate agents recommend them to decorate sellers homes. Also, diffusers are prevalent in spas and beauty shops honing in the aromatherapy aspect they bring. Since these products are a popular way to make any room smell nice they make great gifts for even the hard to buy for person on your gift giving lists.
