DIY Essential Oil Reed Diffuser

Looking for a last minute handmade hostess gift this Holiday? Chances are you probably already have most of the supplies on hand for this pretty (and useful!) DIY project for the home. Essential oil reed diffusers naturally add fragrance to the air by drawing up an essential oil serum through wooden reeds and releasing the scent into the air. They’re super easy to make at home and make great universal gifts!

Step 1.

If giving as a gift, you’ll want to bundle the bamboo reeds together, and secure with a band of tape at the midpoint. Set aside. If you’re simply creating one for your home, skip this step.

Step 3.

Add approximately 20 drops of essential oil, and if giving as a gift, top the bottle with the cork or bottle cap. If using in your own home, place the reeds in the bottle, and enjoy!

Step 4.

If giving as a gift, you’ll want to attach the reeds to the bottle, so that it’s one concise package for your giftee. Wrap ribbon around the midpoint of the bundled reeds.

Then wrap the ribbon around the thickest point of the glass bottle, tie a bow, and garnish with a rosemary sprig.

When ready to use, unwrap the reeds from the ribbon, and place in the jar. Wrap the ribbon around the bottle an extra time, and secure it in a knot or bow. The reeds will draw up the scented glycerine and release it into the air.
