DIY Fragrance Reed Diffuser

You can make your own scented reed diffuser for a room by combining a carrier oil, such as sweet almond or safflower oil, with fragrance/essential oil. You can use either reed diffuser sticks or bamboo sticks and place them in a glass bottle with a narrow neck. I found this idea here.


  • A glass container with a narrow opening
  • 4-5 diffuser sticks (I used bamboo skewers)
  • 1/4 cup sweet almond oil
  • 20-25 drops essential oils (I used sandalwood)


Combine all ingredients in the glass bottle and place the skewers inside. Turn them upside down after a few hours to make the smell last longer.
