How to Make a Natural Reed Diffuser

Looking for a simple, natural way to freshen up your space? Add a few of these pretty natural reed diffusers with homemade diffuser oil.


  • Jar or container to act as the diffuser


  • oil to use as base I like fractionated coconut oil, safflower oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, and grapeseed oil.
  • essential oils of your choice
  • natural reeds Bamboo skewers, rattan reeds, sticks or stems from your garden - just make sure it is porous so the liquid can travel through them.


  • Mix together a combination of 70% oil and 30% essential oils.
  • Add reed oil to the jar, and add your reeds.
  • Place the natural reed diffuser out and enjoy! I've found they work best in enclosed spaces such as bathrooms. They also work well near an air vent or in front of a window.
