Handmade Reed Diffuser

This would make a wonderful hand made gift!

Making diffusers, such as these found at Pier 1 Imports, is so simple and so much cheaper than the ones you buy. You'll want to make one for every room in your house!

  • Small bottles or jars (think outside the box, find unique glassware at flea markets or use single serve wine bottles)
  • Wooden skewers, like the ones used for cooking
  • Essential oils - these can be purchased online at Georgiabodyandbath.com.  You only need a few drops per bottle so each essential oil will last quite a while.
  • Water
* If your giving these as a gift you'll also need a small container with a lid to store the oil.

Mix 20 to 30 drops of essential oil per 8 oz of water.   Pour the mixture into the jars until it is 3/4 of the way full.  Snip off the pointed tip of the wooden skewers and place 5 or 6 in the jar.  Refresh the scent by turning the wood upside down.
