Can I Use the Same Reeds More Than Once?

Aug. 10, 2022

Reed diffusers are great home fragrances. They provide your home with a constant scent for weeks on end, and you can leave them unattended without having to worry about an open fire. You can control the intensity of the scent, get a burst of fragrance when you choose, and taking care of them is easy!

Easy to use, will last your space for months, you can control the intensity of the scent, and there's a lot to love about Reed Diffusers.


The reed diffuser is very easy to use: simply unscrew the cap or remove the stopper and protective foam ring, insert the reed into the top of the diffuser, sit back and relax. The fragrance oil will flow up the reeds, filling your space with fragrance for months.


You can make sure they last as long as possible and scent your space just the way you want it to be scented. Read on to learn how.

Q: How can I make my reed fragrance last longer?

There are many factors that can affect the longevity of your reed diffuser.

➕ Air conditioning


➕ Door closers

➕Opening the door

➕ Dehumidifier

➕Air purifier

➕Size of your space


Our reed diffusers should last about 8-10 months, but ultimately this will depend on the temperature of your home. Keeping them in a draft-free, cool and shady environment will help your diffusers last longer than if you leave them on a warm, sunny windowsill.


Q: How do I control the strength of my diffuser?

Yes, you can control the strength of your diffuser to some degree!

Simply add or remove reeds - the stronger the scent you want, the more reeds you need to add, and vice versa, or if you prefer a more subtle scent, remove a few reeds.

Q: How do I add a scent to my space?

To add a touch of fragrance to your space, simply turn the reeds over and place the tops of the reeds into the liquid. Or light a matching candle.

Q: There is still plenty of oil in the bottle, but my diffuser no longer emits fragrance. What should I do?

You can always try flipping the reeds, but you should not flip them too often because the more you flip them, the faster the oil will dissipate.


Gradually, the reeds become saturated and may become clogged with dust. If there is still oil in the bottle and flipping the reeds does not help improve the smell, you should replace the reeds.


Q: Can I use the same reeds more than once?

If your new fragrance gives off a different scent, we definitely recommend using a fresh set of reeds so that the new fragrance is not contaminated by the old one. If your new diffuser has the same fragrance, the same reeds may be fine, but not as effective as a fresh set of reeds.


Short answer: You should always use new reeds with a new diffuser.
