The Benefits of a Reed Diffuser

What is a reed diffuser?

Reed diffusers are one of the most popular items right now as a functional decoration and as a home fragrance diffuser. Also known as air freshener sticks, they are used by placing the stems of rattan reeds into an oil container. 

The wooden reeds allow the oil to slowly rise to the top of the wicks, where the oil evaporates and enters the air, leaving the room smelling refreshed.

What are the benefits of reed diffusers?

Air Wick Reed Diffusers use rattan stems to delicately diffuse pleasant fragrances. They help create a warm, welcoming atmosphere in your home, office or common area with its scent experience and on-trend design. 

With a simple, elegant design, they serve as great decoration. Plus, batteries are never required, and unlike candles or electronic scent devices, they require no flame and give off no heat.

How to get the best out of your reed diffuser

  • You'll want to place your reed diffuser at a safe distance, but within proximity of a source of circulated air, like a vent or window, so that the fragrance can efficiently spread around the entire room.
  • We advise against putting them too close to these points of airflow, because natural evaporation processes may increase, causing the available oil in your diffuser to disappear faster.
  • We also recommend keeping them off polished, painted or plastic surfaces.
