Tips on how to look after your reed diffusers

Reed Diffuser Mist Spray

Today I thought I’d share tips on how to get the best from my reed diffusers. These can last between 4-6 months depending on how you look after them.

So if you follow the following tips, it will help you get the very best from my reed diffusers….

  • Place away from direct sunlight – placing in direct sunlight, the sunlight will draw the scent from the bottle much quicker.
  • Place away from direct heat – don’t place them over radiators or fires. The heat will draw the scent out much quicker, also it’s not safe to have them over heat sources as they are flammable.
  • Turn your reads at least once every 2 weeks, this helps the reeds stay moist as if they dry out you won’t get the fragrance from them.
  • Change the room you place your reeds in at least once a month. Our noses become use to smells of rooms so if you’ve constantly got your reeds in the same room month after month you’ll find you’ll become nose blind. Changing the room once a month will prevent this, if you do find you can’t smell it before a month then change rooms, our senses of smell are totally different and you may find you need to change rooms more often.
  • If you’ve windows open and your reed diffuser is near by, you won’t smell it as much as the scent will be drawn out through the window.
  • Keep away from children and pets, this is for safety reasons only and not suitable for children to handle and away from pets so they don’t knock them over.
  • Never add water to them or mix with other reed diffuser scents, this should never be done.

Each scent will give off different scent throws so will vary on how strong they are. We have some scents made in diffusers that are more subtle thank others, we always advise when trying a new scent in a reed diffuser you buy it in wax first to make sure you love the scent. A reed diffuser will never give off the same throw as what a wax product will, but our reed diffusers are loved by many and we’ve been told how amazing they really are. I love having them around the house as if I’m not melting my home still smells amazing. Our reed diffusers come in a round bottle that holds approx 120g of liquid and comes with 5 fibre black reeds, these reeds soak up the scent hand hold it really well., they are each 5mm thick and you will receive 5 with each diffuser. We do have an option to buy a refill bottle, in most scents, refills hold approx 100g of liquid. Each diffuser has a luxury clear Little Ideas With Love sticker on the front, to the back theres safety labels and underneath is the CLP and scent name, you can view the CLP label before opening your diffuser and removing the safety cap. When you do remove the safety cap, put the silver lid back on and then place your 5 reeds inside, spreading them out evenly. Sit back and let the fibre reeds start to soak up the fragrance, this for the first time can take up to 24 hours from opening. All our reed diffusers are made to order as your order comes in on the website, making our reeds freshly made. If your scents not showing in stock, simply pop us a message as most times we are able to add more to stock.

Just a little reminder, I’ve taken this week off and will return back to work on Tuesday 11th August, any orders that come in on the website whilst im closed will start to leave in order they came in once I’m back at work. I am at home, but I’m not on my social media as much, but i will reply to messages once I return.

Thank you for taking time to read this weeks blog and I hope you have the most gorgeous week ever!

Love
