Reed diffusers are really popular right now and with good reason; they’re hassle-free, stress-free, flame-free, and a mess-free way to fragrance your home. They eliminate the need for overwhelming aerosol air fresheners and are much safer for children than scented candles; the same question keeps popping up, however, how do they work? It’s an understandable question, a reed diffusers does just look like a few wooden sticks sitting in a fragranced oil; how does that fragrance your home? Here at Acassa, we’re here to give you the answer.
The inner workings of a reed diffuser is actually incredibly simple; the bottom of the reeds are immersed in a fragranced oil that then pulls up the oil into the reed, which in turn is diffused into the surrounding environment making your home smell of beautiful fresh flowers or refreshing citrus . The process is very simple but the components have been developed and tested to ensure that the process works to the maximum potential.
The reeds may just look like thin sticks of normal wood; however, if normal wood was used, the process wouldn’t work at all. In fact, if any material other than reed was used in this process, it wouldn’t work; reeds, on the other hand, are extremely porous which makes them ideal for diffusion and it sucks up the oil like small straws.
Many people ask us about the type of oil used in our reed diffusers and wonder if they can dilute it with water to make it last longer. Our fragranced oils are specially formulated for performance and longevity and as our formula is so successful, we don’t want to give it away. We can tell you, however, it contains no artificial colour or water; you should never mix your oil with water as it won’t mix and you could warp your reeds, ruining your diffusers.
Here’s a quick tip from us at Acassa; if you’re not noticing the fragrance of your reed diffuser anymore then turn the reeds upside down; do this about once or twice a fortnight.
