How to make a Reed Diffuser with Vanilla scent

Homemade products are a fantastic way to brighten up your home and save money. They can look both professional and stylish. Which is why I love making my own products and they make great gifts too.

Reed Stick Diffusers are such an easy homemade product to create. It’s fantastic for the environment as you get to recycle the same glass bottle every few months.

Fragrance reed diffuser oil refills can cost just as much as the original product which doesn’t include reed sticks and bottle. So why pay more than you have to when the refill product is so easy to make at home.
