Citronella Diffuser

Requirements:
Rattan Reeds (Soap Barn)
50ml Citronella essential oil (Soap Barn)
100ml Diffuser Oil Base (Soap Barn)
Yellow liquid colour (Soap Barn)
Green liquid colour (Soap Barn)
150ml Glass Bottle (Soap Barn)

Method:
Combine the essential oil and the diffuser oil base and mix very well. Add the yellow and green colouring to make a lime oil. This way the reeds absorb the fragrance and the colour and you have matching reeds with fragrance. Pour the mixed diffuser oil into your bottle and add your rattan reeds. Leave the reeds to wick (absorb the oil up the hollow tubes) for a couple of hours and turn them over. You can turn them over every couple of days for best results. Use this diffuser anywhere in the house to keep away flies and mostquitoes.

Rattan Reed Diffusers

Ingredients:
Rattan Reeds (Soap Barn)
20ml Fragrance – 10ml + 10ml and Liquid Soap Colouring (Soap Barn)
30ml Diffuser Oil Base (Soap Barn)
50ml Glass Bottle (Soap Barn)

Method:
Combine the fragrances and the diffuser oil base and mix very well till the fragrances are completely emulsified. I have combined two different fragrances each time to make more interesting unique fragrances eg orange and papaya, rose and grapefruit, lemon and apple, blueberry and vanilla. I also coloured each mixture to match the fragrances. This way the reeds absorb the fragrance and the colour and you have matching reeds with fragrance. Pour the mixed diffuser oil into your bottle and add your rattan reeds. Leave the reeds to wick (absorb the oil up the hollow tubes) for a couple of hours and turn them over. You can turn them over every couple of days for best results.

Reed Diffusers are another way to scent your home and office. They are a great way to enhance the smell of a room without an open flame.

Reed diffusers consist of three components. A glass container, a set of reed diffuser sticks/reeds, and diffuser fragrance oil.

Let the rattan reed diffusers draw the diffuser oil for an hour or two then flip the reeds over to expose oil-moistened diffuser reeds to the air. The oil will continue to draw up the diffusers reeds scenting your room for several months. To get the most out of your reed diffuser flip the diffuser reeds over about once a week or as desired for a fresh fragrance burst. Once the diffuser oil is finally used up, simply pour in an oil refill.

In small spaces, like bathrooms, use less sticks. Usually 4-6 reeds work well. Less reeds mean less scent, more reeds mean more scent. You may want to use 8-10 reeds for larger rooms where a stronger scent throw is desired.

Method:
Combine the fragrances and the diffuser oil base and mix very well till the fragrances are completely emulsified. Add one or two drops of blue colouring. This way the reeds absorb the fragrance and the colour and you have matching reeds with fragrance. Pour the mixed diffuser oil into your bottle and add your rattan reeds.
