Our Natroma reed diffusers are made with a vegetable derived reed base oil, that's alcohol and VOC free so it's non-flammable. (A completely natural vegetable oil does not work because it's too thick and would clog the reeds). Our reed diffuser bottles in the Diffuser Kits are squat, square and made from glass. They are 50ml sized and have a black cap which has a hole in the centre for the reeds. Starter kits are supplied with 10 natural rattan reeds. They are a more natural alternative to alcohol based reed diffusers, and contain either pure essential oils or an enhanced blend of essential oils with fine quality fragrances. They are free from any animal derived ingredients, so are vegan friendly. Please remember that like any reed diffuser product these contain potent fragrance ingredients, so you will find warnings on the packaging. You can read about this in our blog article: Labelling of home fragrance products. Remember to wash your hands if you flip your reeds, and mop up any spills immediately since essential oils and fragranced oils can damage polished and natural surfaces.
The kits are supplied in a recycled card gift box, decorated with a coloured ribbon. To use, simply insert 3-4 reeds into the bottle and allow them to draw up the fragrance and scent the room. You can achieve a stronger smell if you use more reeds at a time, but remember they will draw up the oil more quickly so this is less cost effective. We think 3 reeds is enough for a small to average sized room. Reed diffusers are designed to gently waft fragrance around (so are less obvious than a candle that disperses fragrance with heat), so they work most effectively in areas where there is a gentle air flow. Also consider the heat in the room, since the reed oil will be dispersed much quicker if the diffuser is left in a warm spot - just remember that it will smell lovely but will last for a shorter amount of time. If you are looking for a completely natural method of diffusing essential oils or need to fragrance larger rooms we would recommend our LED Ultrasonic Diffusers as an alternative.
We suggest that you do not throw the diffuser reed bottle away since it will be more environmentally friendly to re-use it again. We now have Natroma Reed Diffuser Refills available in a 100ml glass bottle, so you can top up your reed diffuser bottle. There is sufficient oil to re-fill your diffuser bottle twice so is more cost effective than buying new reed diffuser kits. Over time you will find that your rattan reeds become clogged with the oil, so we also sell Replacement Natural Rattan Reeds in packs of 10. If you notice that your reed oil is not reducing in the bottle and the room aroma has become more subtle, it's because your reeds are becoming clogged. So replace your reeds periodically (they are biodegradable), to maintain the fragrance in your room.
Diffuser Kit Dimensions: glass bottle is 4 x 4 x 7cm (including black cap) with 10 natural rattan reeds (short length approx 17cm). Gift box is 55 x 55 x 225mm (approximate). Each box is finished with an organza ribbon.
