After prolonged use and complete saturation of the reeds, the sticks of a fragrance diffuser may become slightly clogged. Whenever you notice that the fragrance is fading a little or you want an extra burst of fragrance. Simply replace them with new reeds to refresh the fragrance.
What are reed diffusers and how do they work?
Reed diffusers are the hottest trend in home fragrance right now. Rattan reeds are inserted into a glass bottle or jar containing a fragrance oil. Each rattan reed contains about 20 channels that run the length of the reed. Like mini-rails, these channels draw the oil up the reeds. The fragrance is then naturally dispersed into the air by evaporation, leaving your home smelling wonderful.
Unlike candles, reed diffusers are flameless and require no heat. Natural White Willow Stick Aroma Diffusers diffuse fragrance into the air naturally. No flame, no soot and above all no risk of fire. This makes reed diffusers safer for your home, office, classroom, etc.
Can I change the sticks in a reed diffuser?
When your reed diffuser fades or no longer sends its fragrance into the air, it is time to turn the reeds of the diffuser upside down. This will allow the oil in the reed diffuser to diffuse again and the reeds will not need to be replaced. Repeat as many times as necessary to continue the diffusion, usually once a week. Later, when the fragrance from the diffuser is no longer noticeable, but there is still reed diffuser oil in the container, it is time to replace the reeds. Sometimes dust clogs the ends.
Can the reeds be reused?
Once the reed sticks, i.e. the diffusion reeds, are fully saturated, the cells of the reeds eventually become clogged and lose their ability to lift the fragrance into the reeds and diffuse it into the room. Needless to say, you absolutely cannot move the combs to another oil fragrance, as the cells will contain the previous fragrance of the fragrance diffuser oil. You will not get a pure fragrance transfer. Reeds are very cheap, so you can replace them by having a stock on hand in your preferred size.
