How Long Do Diffusers Last?

Aug. 18, 2022

A reed diffuser is a great way to make anyone's living space smell clean and inviting. Scented reed diffusers have become popular over the years and now go all the way to wafting fragrances added to homes.


A reed diffuser consists of three parts: a decorative container, scented oil, and reeds. The fragrance oil is placed inside the container, followed by the reeds. The reeds can be made of wood, bamboo, or other material in which they draw the oil upward, and then the oil evaporates into the air releasing the fragrance. When all the oil has evaporated, simply buy new scented oil and refill the container.

Advantages of reed diffusers

1. Reed diffusers are safer and healthier than many types of scented products. Quite simply, high-quality reed diffusers do not use a flame. This is not only safer because it means that reed diffusers do not pose a fire risk, but they are also healthier. Unlike products that involve an open flame, diffusers do not produce soot and other toxins. Reed diffusers that use essential oils may also be less harmful than products that use some synthetic scents.


2. Reed diffusers can be used in many places, including places where other home fragrance products cannot be used. Many public places (including hotel rooms and offices) prohibit the use of candles due to the risk of fire. In addition, many scent sprays should not be used around children or pets. Reed diffusers can be used in many places where other products simply will not work.

3. Reed diffusers are not overwhelming. Have you ever walked into a room and been overwhelmed by a scented water product? I know I have, and it's not very pleasant. With sprays and other types of scented products, it's easy to overwhelm, but with a reed diffuser, it's less likely to happen. Reed diffusers deliver the perfect amount of subtle fragrance into your environment without overwhelming you with scent.

How long do the reeds last in a diffuser?

A good quality reed will last about six months. If the scent is no longer as strong as it once was, try flipping the reeds. Over time, the reeds will become saturated and may become clogged with dust. When this happens, it is time to replace the reeds.

Once the reeds have been used for a specific scent, if you change the scent, you should replace the reeds with new ones. The old scent will mix with the new scent and may have undesirable consequences.


Reed sizes

Diffuser reeds come in different thicknesses and lengths. Generally, the thicker the reed, the higher the diffusion rate. In terms of length, choose an oil diffuser reed that is twice the size of the container's height. Longer reeds will make the container top-heavy and may tip over. If you want to get more information about the best reed diffuser wholesale price, welcome to contact us.
