How to make your own reed diffuser!
A sweet glass jar, 1/2 C oil, 12+ "reed diffuser sticks" (made of a porous wood like rattan), and any essential oil of your preference.
1) Find a zesty glass jar/small vase that will surely add pizzaz and spirit to your living space (I picked one up at Target for around $5).
2) Pour in 1/2 C of any type of oil -- I used canola oil because it's cheap and I don't use it in my food anymore. (Though they are more expensive I only use olive and coconut oil these days because I couldn't find a specific plant source for canola oil.) :)
3) Obtain your favorite essential oil scents and drop 5-10 droplets into the oil --I alternate between combining lime and lavender together or just using orange with cinnamon.
4) Insert the reed sticks. (I got mine for $1 at Bed Bath and Beyond).
5) Inhale deeply and enjoy!
