Best Practices for Using a LAFCO Diffuser in Your Home

A little fragrance goes a long way, especially when it comes to scented candles. If you want to fill your home with lasting fragrance, however, it might make more sense to use a reed diffuser. Reed diffusers don’t require a power outlet or an open flame – they disperse round-the-clock fragrance through the use of fragrance oil and reeds.

Here’s what you need to know about best practices for using a reed diffuser in your home along with tips for picking the perfect fragrance.

How Do Reed Diffusers Work?

Unlike scented candles which involve melting wax to release fragrance, reed diffusers don’t require a flame or any heat at all. A reed diffuser is simply a vessel filled with fragrance oil. You insert reeds into the vessel which soak up the oil and disperse the fragrance into the air. By adjusting the number of reeds, you can control the intensity of the fragrance.

LAFCO reed diffusers are artfully crafted with premium-quality fragrance, delivered in artisanal glass vessels with hand-cut reeds. Natural wood reeds soak up the pure, essential-oil based fragrance to deliver 4 to 12 months of lasting fragrance. All LAFCO fragrance oils are completely free from dyes, propellants, and other synthetic additives.

With LAFCO reed diffusers, you have two sizes to choose from. The 6-ounce Classic reed diffuser measures 3-by-5.5 inches and stands 10.5 inches tall with the reeds. This reed diffuser delivers up to 4 months of fragrance. The 15-ounce Signature reed diffuser measures 4-by-6.5 inches and stands 12 inches tall with the reeds. It delivers up to a full year of fragrance.

Here are some simple tips for using a reed diffuser:

  1. Place the glass reed diffuser vessel on a coaster or tray to catch any oil drips.
  2. Uncap the container of fragrance oil and carefully pour a few ounces into the vessel.
  3. Add the hand-cut reeds and arrange them as you see fit.
  4. When you notice the fragrance starting to fade, flip the reeds for a burst of fresh fragrance.
  5. Once the fragrance oil has evaporated, wash the vessel with soap and water then let dry.
  6. Add fresh fragrance oil to the clean vessel instead of adding new to old oil.
  7. Change the reeds each time you change the oil to ensure optimal fragrance dispersion.

Reed diffusers can be used anywhere in the home, though they tend to work best in rooms with plenty of air circulation to help disperse the scent. Foyers, bedrooms, and bathrooms are great locations for a reed diffuser. Consider the size of the space when choosing a reed diffuser – larger rooms will need a larger reed diffuser to be able to fill the space with fragrance.

When your LAFCO reed diffuser reaches the end of its life, there are several options. You can continue to use the reed diffuser by purchasing fragrance refills and extra reeds. Another option is to clean and repurpose the vessel into a flower vase, a tapered candle holder, or any other number of options.

How to Choose the Right Fragrance

The perfect fragrance can completely change the ambiance in your home – it can even change your mood. When it comes to fragrance, there is no right or wrong. It’s about finding something that evokes emotion and contributes to the kind of vibe you want your home to have. If you’re not sure where to start, sample three LAFCO fragrances with the Discovery Trio to find your new favorite.

Consider one of LAFCO’s most popular reed diffuser fragrances:

  • Marine – Featuring notes of bergamot, marine, and jasmine, this fresh fragrance is perfect for the bathroom. This fragrance starts with an initial impression of bergamot, clove, and rhubarb before settling into a heart of marine accord and jasmine water lily.
  • Chamomile Lavender – Turn any space into an oasis of calm with this warm, welcoming fragrance. Top notes of bergamot and chamomile give way to lavender and eucalyptus before fading to a lasting impression of rosemary, patchouli, and honey flower.
  • Feu de Bois – Create a warming ambiance in your home with this soft, soothing fragrance. Woody notes of cedar leaf, mountain spruce, and pine hover over a heart of patchouli, sandalwood, and Virginia cedar before fading into notes of frankincense and amber myrrh.
  • Champagne – This bright fragrance features sparkling notes of ginger, grapefruit, and raspberry interwoven with essences of neroli and rose. Presented in a white art glass vessel, this reed diffuser will be perfectly at-home in virtually any room.

If you’re looking for long-lasting fragrance, a reed diffuser could be the way to go. Available in two sizes – the 6-ounce Classic and the 15-ounce Signature – LAFCO reed diffusers are presented in handblown art glass vessels with hand-cut reeds and powered by pure essential-oil based fragrance.
