Reed diffusers are a great addition to your home. Unlike candles, reed diffusers are flame free and do not require any heat - meaning they’re great for adding a constant gorgeous fragrance to keep the house smell lovely and welcoming.

About reed diffusers

So, how do reed diffusers work? Well, the reeds soak up the fragrance oil and disperse the scent into the surrounding air - the reeds have a porous structure that provides a controlled rate of fragrance release. Our reed diffusers last until all the fragrance oil evaporates which is normally around 10 – 12 weeks so they can be a really cost-effective way to keep your living spaces smelling lovely.


Get the most from your reed diffuser

To get the most from your reed diffuser, we recommend placing it where people pass by throughout the day. This could be a hallway or at the entrance to a living room as this traffic helps the fragrance to continue to disperse throughout the room. As people pass by, it encourages air circulation so the fragrance lifts and carries through the space - welcoming you and any guests into the room.

For a fuller fragrance, or to scent a larger room, add all the reeds to your diffuser, as the more reeds you use in the diffuser, the more fragrance is dispersed at one time.

If you’d rather enjoy a lighter fragrance, or intend to place your reed diffuser in a smaller room, adding fewer reeds to the diffuser will create a more subtle aroma.

We’ve made sure our reed diffusers are very low maintenance too. Unlike other reed diffusers, Northumbrian Candleworks reeds do not need to be ‘flipped’ like the rattan reeds you find in a lot of other reed diffusers. This means that, as well as minimising the risk of oil spillage when turning the reeds, the fragrance is consistently being diffused so you can keep enjoying the lovely scents without the need to change or flip the reeds.

And remember, it’s best to place your diffuser on a coaster or mat to ensure the fragrance oils do not damage any furniture or table tops.
