With the recently popular reed oil diffusers I suspected I had found a solution, but (surprise, surprise) they are way overpriced in the stores. I finally spotted one for a couple bucks at my local Goodwill store last week, and took it home to try out. I really liked how it worked, easy, safe, and with a light steady fragrance. Ever crafty and thrifty, I decided to experiment with making a version of the diffuser for another room with things I have around the house.
Make your own oil diffuser:
- Small jar, vase, or other non-porous container with a narrow neck to hold the oil
- Natural fragrance oils, or mix your own oil- baby oil plus essential oils or even perfume
- Porous wood to use for the reeds- bamboo, skewers, dowels, even interesting twigs or branches from your garden (I plan to try this later this year!)
- Put it all together, flip the sticks over for more fragrance
